Question: Macbook Pro Overheating and Crashing

Hi


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?


Thanks

MacBook Pro
