My recently-bought laptop is having some hardware trouble... When I turn it on, everything proceeds normally for about 15-20 seconds. Then, the fan goes to max power and gets ridiculously loud for about 5-10 seconds and the computer shuts down again.
Presumably, this is due to some sort of overheating going on inside the computer, but it's on for so short a time, I don't understand what might be wrong, and the fan is running normally. All I can do is guess that something might be wrong with a heatsink or thermal paste, such that even the fan pumping hard doesnt cool it off enough. I'll be opening it up to take a look shortly, but does anyone here happen to know what might be wrong?
EDIT: Well, it's 8 months old, actually, but still under the first year's warranty. So, return is not an option, but I should be able to send it in for repairs.
