Ok, Thanks for the advice.

I bought a can of compressed air today and tried to open the laptop but I was unable to do so because 2 screws were stuck .

I used the compressed air to clean the dust and so far it emits less heat than before.

I will do the other tests over night and feed you back.

I ran Windows defender offline quick scan now and there were no issues, or at least I think so as I was not prompted that there's any threat.

Do you recommend running a full scan ?

I think it'll take me another night for that.

I ran memtest86 and after 90 minutes the laptop shut down.

I went to check and found extensive heat from underneath.

I don't have a cooling pad so I put two small blocks under the laptop to give some space for cooling and restarted memtest86, hopefully it will finish without problems :-(

You may have other issues, memtest creates very, very, little heat. See if your vent are clogged with dust, blow it out if so.

Memtest sound like it's doing well, complete at least 7 passes.

Yes, it finished 8 passes without errors.

After a couple of hours I'll start the Windows Defender Offline full scan and feed you back.

I have a question here, just in case I ended up without solving the problem.

My laptop didn't came with a separate windows CD, it came with a utility to take a backup of the existing system at that time, and I took my first back up a couple of months later.

I don't want to restore from the backup, I want to install a fresh copy, so if I can get a copy of windows 7 without a key and use the key that came with my laptop, will that be OK ? i mean will that copy identify my key, supposing that both copies are Home Premium.
