HP Dv6 I7 - 3 years old. Randomly shuts down.

Ok, We have a Dv6 which randomly shuts down, fan always runs hot but has started to turn itself off (mainly when on the internet)

1. Cleaned vents
2. Mem test
3. HDD test

No known issues at the moment. It was working well but.

Any suggestions on diagnosing?

So what did you do?

try bios update before anything else, otherwise may need thermal module replaced

This would suggest it is cpu might be running high. use task manager and see what the CPU load is 'when on the internet'
