Remove the keyboard, turn on the laptop.

Touch the heat sink while the laptop is turning on.

If it's getting very hot but the cooling fan doesn't spin, try replacing the fan.

had this a few times myself. make sure the fan connector did not come out of it's socket and that the socket itself is sitting flush and that both pins are making their way through the socket and into the fan connector.

Hi,

This is definitely a overheating problem. try using laptop ventilation stand to save your laptop from getting over heated.

Good luck.
