Hi there and welcome

This is usually caused when there is too much dust inside the notebook.

What I advise you to do is to power it off then remove the power cable.

Then vacuum out via the air vents to remove all dust.

Once done, still with no power cable connected, hold down the power button for 60 seconds then release.

then connect the power cable, power it on and tell me how it now operates please Judith
