Hi I'm not sure whether this is the correct forum to post in but its definitely hardware related so here goes. My girls laptop kept throttling and dying at bout 80c. I brought it home, took it apart, removed dust and changed thermal paste for CPU and GPU. The old W7 installation boots fine and temps are much better now than before (Disk and CPU idles at about 50c but the chipset is about 60c) This was all done on a anti static mat. Here's the not so funny part. As W7 is old and outdated I grabbed an SSD I have lying around and tried both booting from the network (MDT) and USB but the computer shuts down at random times This morning it actually completed the MDT installation but died right before a reboot. It doesn't matter how far into the process it gets or what it does but Im starting to think it shutdown beacuse of high load. It could also be a power related issue, the battery is almost dead and the laptop always need external power. Any ideas at all?
