Hey,

I have hardware problem with my macbook pro 13' mid 2010.

After a brief time laptop crashes, often with single coloured screen (blue, pink etc, everytime different).
When I have installed fan and temperature managing software it turned out that laptop crashes in ~40C (104F).
When I increased fans speed to max and monitored temperature I was able to maintain os x stable.

I have cleaned insides and changed thermal paste on cpu and gpu. I can't run full Apple Diagnostics tests because laptop crashes in the middle of it.

I would be grateful for any advices how to deal with the problem.

Do the below:
1. Open Activity Monitor.
2. Choose All Processes.
3. Click CPU.
4. Click the %CPU column to sort the apps and processes by those that are using a lot of CPU power.
Look for any application that is using more than 70% of the CPU. If so highlight the application and press Quit Process.

If that doesn't help try to Reset SMC: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201295

Peace.

40c on what? That is not very hot for any component in that laptop, I doubt a 40c temp on anything is causing a crash. However if increasing fan speeds stopped the crashing there could still be a heat issue, however I doubt it is any component running at 40c.

Thank you for your answers.

Reseted SMC and NVRAM but it didn't help.

I have reinstalled system and now cpu temperature is 60C, managed to get it to 70C. Apparently the fan was on 2000RPM in all these cases (unless changed using aplication).

Here are some photos of the crashes:
