Question: Macbook Pro Overheating and Crashing


My Macbook crashes after it has been switched on for several minutes. Once it happens once it then crashes almost immediately after being switch back on. I know it is a hardware issue because the same thing happens when I boot from a Linux USB stick. I have taken the back off and the cooling fan is working so I wondered if anyone could suggest what the cause of the issue might be?

Keep your Mac notebook within acceptable operating temperatures - Apple Support

Shut down

Disconnect all external devices

Reset the System Management Controller (SMC)


repeat 2/3 times

Reset the nonvolatile random-access memory (NVRAM)

(OPTION+COMMAND+p+r at Startup)


repeat 2/3 times

Then use safeboot (SHIFT at Startup)


Then reboot normally with devices disconnected.
