ok, now seriously I have a real problem pertaining to this. The last few months my cpu gets so hot so fast that sometimes it just shuts off. And I don't even run many programs or anything, it's a new laptop also and for a while there was nothing like this occurring.. can anyone help me out?

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

you sure you're not blocking the vents somehow?

you should keep your laptop on a hard surface, never on blankets or cushions that will block the vents.

yeah, I did the same thing back when I got my first laptop.

just be sure the hot air has a place to go and it should run fine. Those things generate a lot of heat, and most of them have governors that shut them down when they get too hot. Its a good thing, too, because if they didnt have that safety feature, a mistake like that could have fried your expensive hardware!

keep it cool, man!
