Dell Latitude E6410 random "overheat" issue
Posted on 2014-12-10
I'm working with a laptop experiencing odd behavior. Most of the time it shuts down randomly, and it seems to never run more than a few seconds. The issue is, I'm swapped just about everything on it and get the same problem.
Replace mainboard multiple times.
Checked hard drive and replaced hard drive.
Tested with another battery from another laptop but same model.
Tested with another CPU from another same model laptop that worked.
Kept laptop plugged in and unplugged.
Laptop will boot up a little bit then shutdowns with no error code.
Laptop will boot up a little then pop up with a warning stating system is overheating and then shutdown.
Will sometime boot off a CD in boot mode but again sometime it will do nothing at all.
Will not run long enough to run a diagnostic on laptop.
Any suggestions? I feel like the chassis is possessed!
