  1. Four possible causes I can think of are:

    1) Overheating
    Check the if the fan spins at normal speed.
    Check the fan management in the BIOS for enabled or disable and disable if necessary to test the results.

    2) Bad power converter
    Check the power delivery or try another power converter

    3) Virus infection
    Scan the system

    4) Corrupted or infected i8042prt.sys keyboard/mouse driver
    Scan the system

    You may have to use another mouse or the touchpad to access the BIOS and to scan the system.
