    Way to refuse windows of shutting down laptop

    Hey everyone
    not sure this is a windows issue at all but does anyone know a way of telling windows not to shut your laptop down due to overheating? I rather take the risk with this thing rather than not being able to do ****...

    If its overheating, you need to find the cause of the overheating issue.

    Depending on the age of the laptop, there may be options available to slow the speed of the CPU down to decrease its heat output, but, fixing the overheating issue is your best bet.....which is usually caused by plugged heatsink fins or cooling fan stop working.

    If this is in a smoking environment, the likelihood of clogged heatsink is very high on the "suspect" list.

    Go out and get yourself a can of compressed air and try blowing through the heatsink area to see if you can dislodge any material clogged in the heatsink area to see if it helps. Otherwise, it will require disassembly to get it out and clean it properly.
