    Does it do a regular shutdown or does it just turn off suddenly? Is the fan running exceptionally fast or loud?

    Seems to turn off suddenly. Not sure fan is running. Will try to get air vents cleaned; will keep you'all pasted.

    I think you are right about the heating. I had a transformer and removable drive against the laptop which were moved. At the same time all vents were vacuumed. The problem has not returned.
    Many thanx.
