Windows 7: My laptop keeps shutting down when multiple web pages are opened

My laptop keeps shutting down when multiple web pages are opened

Hello, I was reading online that after some years you should add new thermal paste to your cooling and clean fan.. so since my laptop was from 2012 I decided to do that. I removed the backpanel and the copper cooling and noticed lots of black soot. (Probably cause we use candles which we now have stopped). I used a small electric blower to dust out all that black soot and used coffee filters to try to clean up most of the soot. I used the electric blower to get out all the soot in the laptop fan too.

I noticed the thermal compound did look a bit dry but I just left it as that

Heres some photos of how it all looks like.. After dusting I placed everything back together but <bold>now the problem!</bold>

Now every time I open multiple web pages with google chrome or firefox my computer automatically shuts down. It's like any program that uses a lot of my graphics card will make pc shut down automatically

Just so you know yes my fan is working cause I hear it and feel some warm heat air coming out of the vents.

Im not sure what I did if its cause I need to add new Thermal Paste?

You definitely need to clean old paste off, scrape it off and use alcohol.

Good as it looked like your paste turned to mortar.
