My laptop overheated and shut down. Since then it does not stay on more than a few seconds sometimes it gets all the way to window's login.
I opened it and replaced the heat sink and fan that had failed.
Still no luck.
I added some thermal paste on top of the cpu to be sure it was connected to the heat sink.
The power light is on when ac adapter is pluggged on. The laptop starts and then shuts down.
If the laptop goes all the way to windows login does it not mean that the cpu and the hard drive are still ok? The hard drive is new - I changed it a month ago.
Anything else I can do?
