Hi!

I have an upgraded Samsung NP300E5A (HM65) running an i7 2860qm, and 8gb of RAM.
It works great, when running normal, temps are a litte high, because this notebook was not designed to handle a 45W CPU. Anyways, the problem started sometime ago, for no apparent reason.

Almost every morning, when I turn on the PC, no matter what I'm doing, EX: IM on Windows, BIOS, Linux, etc. Idle, Load. After using if for about 2-4 minutes, It shuts down!
Its not temperature related, because it happens on Load or Idle. Then, I turn it on, it works normally, and during the day, it shuts down again, like if I was holding the power button for 5 sec. It happens on AC or with the Battery.

What I've tried:
  1. Reflashing the BIOS with a clean ME
  2. Removing the CMOS battery
  3. Reapplying Thermal Paste
  4. Tweaking the BIOS
Thanks for any advice! :)
