I am trying to diagnose a problem on a friend's lap top. She's had problems with it flickering and shutting down, since I helped her install [ubuntu].

Neither of us are programmers, but we have wondered if it is overheating, or something with hardware.

When it shuts down it's hot to the touch (why we think it is overheating) and it takes a while to turn on again.

We have it set up right now for air flow to go under the bottom and a fan blowing on it.
