there's a few reasons why that's happening/happened 1. the fan is broke and needs replacing.

alternatively you could also be running programmes that are too "advanced" for the processor to handle hence that componant overheats and the computer freezes.

the latter means that one section of the laptop will overheat and the whole thing will crash, the former option, more of the laptop will overheat...

it may well be the processor judging by what i've heard, or worse-comes-to-worst, the motherboard as you said. but i can't be 100% to be honest.

as for you lansyp, probably the same.

erm... take the plug out, battery out, hold down the power button for 30-45 seconds and then try again (not a stupid answer, trust me, it works 50% of the time)

booted up, lasted about 30 seconnds, went hot again, so i reckon it is the fan.
the battery doesnt seem to be charging either.
press the on button just get flashing light ( 5/6 flashes) on the battery icon
the power on icon isnt on either

That may be a status warning the flashing light. The fan may not be spinning and it's cutting out before it causes real problems.

Try starting the laptop again, hold your hand over the fan area. Feel for air? If the fan is broken that could be the cause of the systems.

If the fan is running, it may be full of dust / dirt and not runing efficiently, but it would needed a blanket of fluff to make it shut off so quickly.

Try and establish if the fan is with us or not?

I can have a look at it if your stuck.

If it's a case of opening up the whole laptop then it needs to go to a shop?
Some modern laptops have a seperate flap to remove the fan. How ever this does now sound like the fan on the processor?

I sent you a pm with details.
