The system was shut down due to a critical thermal event

This is what happened. you should be able to tell from just the title.
http://www.overclock.net/laptops-not...r-netbook.html

and replaced my hard drive and now i got a new problem. my computer randomly shuts down and in the event viewer, i get this "The system was shut down due to a critical thermal event."

it seems like the my computer does shut down when my computer's doing a lot of processing but the bottom side of my laptop doesnt seem that hot (barely warm) at all.

"The system was shut down due to a critical thermal event.
Shutdown Time = ‎2010‎-‎03‎-‎08T17:37:08.620838900Z
ACPI Thermal Zone = ACPI\\ThermalZone\\TZ00 "

it usually does this more often when im using just battery, and it seems to get a little better when i take out the battery and just use the ac power.

ive tried reinstalling the ACPI drivers but that did not help. i doubt that this really is a heat problem... but im not completely sure. anyone here knows whats going on? the fans running all the time btw.

- Get the latest bios for your system
- Install a piece of software that reads the temperature of your system.

never mind i spoke too soon. it did it again right after i clicked on "post quick reply." it did it when it was at around 60 degrees Celsius, which is pretty much the highest the netbook goes but it's limited to 90 degrees. i also noticed that my computer kept shutting down by it self until i removed the battery. i even tried waiting for 5 minutes with the battery kept in but even then the compouter shut down.

Probably the heatsink isn't seated well when you put your netbook back together.

i dont think so. it never went over 60 degrees and it's actually limited to 90 degrees (which did not even get any near that high). could it be a system problem? how would i fix this?
