This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Please clarify your question with more information. Overheating could be possible for dust and other hardware issues. Is the same happening for other OS (like xp/win 7) if any.Pprocessors have built-in thermal protection. If the processor gets too hot, the built-in protection shuts down the computer –  Web-E Apr 1 '12 at 19:15
