Default Overheating kinda....

I got somthing in the mail the other day about how people are suing EMachines (the people that made my laptop) because they over heat and EM knew that when they shipped it and then they lied about it. I have had to send it it once so they could fix my fan (which was one reason they overheat because everyone with this computer has this problem) so I am eligible for $360 from them, but they have to test it to see if I am lying about it overheating. I just spreayed it with compressed air so overheating isn't a problem at the moment.... Is there anything I can do to get it to overheat again?^^ I want my money because this laptop is a peice of crap! But...like bamafan...I'm building my own pc sometime soon...:-D thanks!

Open everything that you can at one time, put it in a warm environment, mess with the fan again and see if you can disable it... if you really want to do this.

Well, if it shuts off because of heat again, you'll have an excuse.
