thanks for all the links, i'm pretty sure i can get IRST working if I follow those instructions. I got this pc in may though so doubt it's full of dust everywhere I look I get instructions on how to clean out my laptop. I've never had issues with any laptop overheating like this.

Hi goodjob1,

Thanks for your reply. Please let me know if you have installed the windows with ISRT enabled in BIOS and then installed windows on the SATA drive. Also, did you load the driver for ISRT while installing windows.

Once you follow the tutorial you should be able to get it working as many other users were able to install windows using this method.

You could use a can of compressed air to blow the dust out from the laptop. Check this video which might be useful for you :

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

I reinstalled windows without irst enabled, do i have to do another clean install of windows with irst enabled? I tried to do it that way a few times but I always get a message asking for drivers to locate the disks. I've tired using the driver disk that came with the laptop but I can't ever find the drivers to locate any disks to reinstall.
