Auto shutdown due to overheating

HP G62-b31EE Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Hi.
I am facing this overheating issue since last 3 years and it is getting worse with every passing summer.

Whenever I run a software or try to play any game on this laptop it gets shutdown. The body is not physically warm enough for an overheated machine. I have also changed its thermal paste about 6 months ago. I worked pretty well in the first week but right after one week it started doing the same thing again. Now, even when there is no load on CPU and I run web browser or any other software, its CPU temperature starts rising and just at about 90 degree Celsius, it get turned off.

This is really frustrating because I can't do assignments or other any work properly on my machine. Kindly help me and tell me what should I do to get this fixed.


Cheers.

When would be the last time you've downloaded Bios update?

I had updated BIOS about 2 months ago. Updated them again and changed the thermal gel of CPU. It's working smooth now. Thanks for the reply!
