    I upgraded my asus x401a with a i5-3210m. It works fine but exactly 30 minutes after being on it turns off. This happens even in bios. I'm wondering if there's a block or something in bios making the machine shutoff since it's not the orignal cpu. I know it's not a power issue. I've looked at the bios with amibcp but didn't see anything but of course I'm new to this. Can anyone help? I'm running 206 of bios. I can't post a link since not enough posts but model is the x401a1. It uses ami bios.
