Laptop shutting off
I have a gateway laptop with a i7 3520m CPU. I upgraded it from a i3 to i7. With the i3 I could use it for hours before it would shut off. Now for some reason it will shut off after 30 minutes of using it. I let it play my music and open cpu-x and it runs between 45 & 50 Celsius. The fan kicks on at 50 Celsius and kicks off at 45 Celsius. It takes about 10 seconds to reach 50 Celsius. I can't figure it out. The i3 draws 35 watts and the i7 draws 45 watts of power. I put new CPU paste on it. So thanks for the help.
