Hi guys, i am listing a correct way to troubleshoot step by step overheating in laptop without open it. Please help me with other steps or diagnostic. Remember without opening the laptop

Step 1: Ask the folloing questions

1. The keyboard and the bottom of your laptop are very hot when the laptop is working.?
2. The CPU fans are working all the time at maximum rotation speed and operate much louder than before.?
3. The laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without warning. When it just started, the laptop was shutting down after 1-2 hours and how it shuts down after 5-10 minutes of operation.?
4. The laptop works fine when it runs idle, but shuts down as soon as you start using any memory demanding applications (DVD player, image editing software, video editing software, etc.).?

Step 2: Run General Hardware Diagnostic

Step 3: Update latest Bios

Step 4: Update latest Chipset Driver

Step 5: Update latest Video Driver

I find blowing compressed air into the fans and vents does wonders for blowing out dust build up that can cause laptops to run hot.
