dell xps 15z i'v had since new. recently its been overheating , especially when i watch videos. comes mostly from the heatsink itself. shutting it off for 15 minutes, cools down. i used to keep it on, 24/7, but lately i've been shutting it off 12 hours at a stretch. rarely it spontaneously shuts down. i have done no modifications except to install a SSD HD. any help is appreciated.
