comment Could a laptop switch off even if it isn't overheating?
Well, the Dell guy came and changed the fan and cleaned some vents ("overheating, of course" is what he said). 30 minutes after he left, the system crashed. It won't turn on at all now. So much for their diagnostics. I guess what we do know is that it wasn't the processor overheating. Thanks for all your help folks. He'll come in again tomorrow and take another look at it.

I did run sensors-detect as this post details. I'm running the system without battery to see if the battery could be causing it.

I'm using "sensors" (lm-sensors.org). I've added the output to my question description.

If I switch it back on immediately after it goes off, it'll switch off again in about a minute. It isn't an OS issue: I let it stay at the BIOS screen and it still went off. On this "restart", the fan does run pretty hard.

I use the "sensors" tool on my Fedora/Linux system. Whatever it showed seemed normal: cpu + gpu I think. The battery isn't warm at all. I don't quite know how to monitor temperatures from the other parts.
