*Please contact your local Sony service centre if you wish to inquire, modify, erase or suspend use of your personal information provided in connection with this announcement.Many PC laptops are poorly designed, causing them to overheat and turn off automatically to keep from becoming damaged. Remove Dust Dust often forms around fans and air vents, reducing airflow and cooling.Then, I accepted a Dell Update about three weeks ago and everything changed. I’ll save you the details about every step I followed in an attempt to fix this issue, and just give you some quick bullet points that did not work.
Placing a laptop on a pillow or bed will smother the vents and stop airflow.
If you do use the laptop on a bed, carpet, etc, at least place it on a board or other smooth surface so that the laptop can use the designed airflow. Raise the Laptop Raise the laptop to allow more air to flow underneath. For example, four rubber furniture raisers bought a hardware store will cheaply raise a laptop.

This is great news, because my laptop was showing 100° (after the BIOS upgrade) as the maximum temperature; and would shut down when the current temps hovered around there for more than a few seconds.
(Oh, and I currently have 7 tabs open in Chrome while also running Power Point, HWMonitor, i Tunes, Word and Excel… ) Okay, here are the steps I took to stop my Dell Inspiron laptop from overheating and shutting down: STEP 1: Click the Windows Icon and type “edit power plan.” Click on the link provided and you should see this window appear: STEP 2: Click the blue link that reads “change advanced power settings.” This should open the Power Options window: STEP 3: Open the “Processor power management” choice and select “Maximum processor state.” I changed both settings (“On battery” and “Plugged in”) to 85% (you can experiment with different settings), clicked “Apply” and then “Okay.” After a quick restart (not sure if I needed to or not), my laptop was running perfectly.
