I have a problem with an Ex-Australian Government Laptop from 2006 which i got in 2011, i have an unexpected problem when after 1 or 2 days the Laptop shuts itself down for no apparent reason that has happened since 2011 at least once/twice a year there is no battery power as the battery is long out of use (i.e empty) the heat sink is clean and the laptop has anti-virus and everything, the problem normally stops after putting in a different power entry (where the cord where it powers the laptop or 'AC' mode) and normally happens in summer (i think it maybe overheating) help? i haven't found any where else that defines this
(also i am a gamer but the laptop's hardware (the most modern games it can play are) Minecraft, Age of Empires III and NFS Most Wanted (2005)

Yes its normally because of over heating get a cool pad for your laptop which has a fan and cools it down.
This happens when the laptop over heats and also keeping the laptop in a wood surface is better because it does not overheat that easy but don't keep it in the sofa or lap since it will over heat faster.

Lol don't put ice or anything.
Just buy a laptop cool pad it works great.
If your computer turns of due to over heating then don't turn it on instantly wait for it to cool down a little for like 15-30 minutes before you turn it on again.
Because as soon as the computer turns off if you keep turning it back on you can damage your computer it can break.

It automatically turns off when it over heats is because it can damage the motherboard/computer so if you keep turning it back on it might break and be hard to repair.
