Re: Ollee L14HTC6HPWA 14.1-inch Laptop

They are made by a beige box manufacturer called Protempo, which is based in Aukland NZ.

There are also reports that the fan may need replacement -- see here: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X201s-is-overheating/td-p/791715 Here's a video on disassembling and cl...

Ok, I will try with different kernels.

If I use only ac adapter, when the problem occurs, it will restart my laptop.
