My PC Overheats everytime i run heavy software anad it just goes off when it does that. And before going off, it sometimes freezes.
1. What's the cause?
2. How can i fix?
This model of laptop is getting old at this point, if you've never done it, it may be advisable to open it and see if there is any significant dust build up and clear it.
It might also be worth replacing the thermal compound on the CPU (and GPU if required)
There are a couple of reasons your laptop is overheating:
The best thing I can recommend is that you keep it well-ventilated. It overheats due to the processor and graphics working so hard yet the cooling system can't keep up and reaches critical temperatures.
Look up a free program called OpenHardwareMonitor. It allows you to keep an eye on temperatures so that you know how high it may go before it shuts down.
