Why is my laptop getting hot right where I rest my left hand when I type?

Probably where your graphics card and/or CPU is located under the bezel. Make sure you are not blocking the vent holes on the laptop, and try to keep the laptop raised in back to allow heat to dissipate. If it's old enough, the fans might be blocked with dust and/or failing, in which case the laptop won't cool properly.

laptop crashed

Really need more information, but my guess is dirty fan. If fan is blocked by dust, it may make noise and may run at high speed all the time because the CPU is overheating. If CPU gets hot enough, the laptop will shut itself down without warning. If dust is the problem, get some canned air. Before blowing into the air vents, try to spot where the CPU fan is and gently insert a toothpick to block the fan and prevent it from turning. A long blast of compressed air can spin the fan too fast and burn out its delicate bearings. Blow air from underneath and also from the side vent until air blows clear. In some bad cases of dust, the bottom or top cover must be removed to get it all out.

My vostro beeps 5 times continously from startup till on windows. pls help out

Hi Femi,

5 beeps on a Vostro generally means that the internal CMOS battery (the one responsible for your laptop keeping its time etc) has failed and needs to be replaced. You're best taking the laptop to a local computer shop to get the CMOS battery swapped out.

Many thanks,
