First, I would spray canned air through the fan vent.

I could not find the manual for your laptop, but on this link it shows how to open a Sharp laptop. Follow the setps up to removing the keyboard, then you may be able to spray canned air onto the Processor fan.

Even if a defective CPU may decide to overheat by itself the case would be quite unusual.The problem is usually caused by a defective fan or by a fan incorrectly installed. Be sure that the fan is starting and replace the fan.

As a first step try once again reinstalling the fan. This time measure the temperature using a software like SpeedFan.
If there is no change in temperature reading, try replacing the fan. A fan with damaged bearing may provide insufficient cooling resulting in overheating.

PS: be sure that problem is temperature and not system crashing. The temperature monitoring software will tell you.

Fans Buzzing

If you here a buzzing sound from your pc's case clean the processor fan! remove the 4 screws in the holes on all 4 corners and unplug it from the motherboard and clean the dust off the heat sink and the bottom of the fans blades put the screws back make sure the fan doesnt wabble!!! and the screws are TIGHT! And then connect the fans power cord back to the motherboard and turn the computer on before putting the case back together and make sure the fan spins and that should solve the problem! and make windows faster by not using all your RAM! Thanks for reading this! :)

Hp a6320in processor fan air flow direction?

Processor fans are setup to nearly always blow air inward onto the heat sink that sits on top of the processor. The heat sink pulls heat off of the processor and the processor fan blows air onto the heat sink to cool the heat sink so that it can pull more heat off the processor. However, read the following link to see that it probably doesn't matter that much which way you put it:****-vs-blow-way-do.html

I would definitely set it up with the processor fan blowing inward onto the CPU. If you're experiencing overheating you can try switching it to see if that helps. Use a program such as SpeedFan to monitor your computer's temperatures.

Good luck, please post back to this solution if you have any difficulties, and thanks for using FixYa.

I have a problem. MY 8RDA3I motherboard includes, FAN COOL, post-ff and all PROCESSOR warm. Thanks in advance. I am from RUSSIA.

Probably the processors fan is defective or the processor grill is filled with dust and dirt . Unscrew the fan
and give it a good clean up . Use a air spray to clean up the processors gril preferably to a vacuum unless you handle with extreme caution .
Check also the general fan .
Dust is the nr 1 ennemy of the pc . Hold the inside spotlessly clean .
Best regards,

My daughter called me this am from school. She said that her laptop seemed to be running hot, especially on the left side, and would shut down after about 15 minutes of use. I told her to run portable...

Joe- This does sound like thermal shut down. Unfortunately what I would bet has happened, is your daughter uses her computer on the bed often, which picks up lint. This lint ends up plugging the intake port of the computer. I believe the A105 has access to the fans on the bottom pannel which is really helpfull otherwise you have to take the laptop apart. you should get in there with a brush, a vaccume, compressed air and really clean out the fans, and the fins of the heatsink. I would also pull the heatsink from the processor clean both the processor and heatsink with Alcohol and apply artic silver thermal paste to it as per the instructions. Now reassemble. It should be all set.
As for the coolpad, if the fan is running, which I think it is, it will help. IT will not solve the problem, and the chip will continue to overheat and shut down but take longer to do so.

Dell Demension runs great but loud fan noise that takes a long time to shut down. What going wrong?

I had a similar problem with excessive fan noise on my Dell Dimension 5150. The solution was to replace the worn heat sync compound that was between the cpu and the heat sync itself. (£0.99 ebay)

Assalaam-o-Alekum and Hello This is Bilal, I have Dell optiplex GX280 with 3.2Gh processor. Iam facing a problem with a cooling fan which install for cooling of processor. Thats run very fast after few...

Hi, I have the same computer, and the stock fan that's installed has a very high rpm. It is a variable fan that can actually be set in the bios to run in a quiet mode or in a mode that is more for heavy work, like your gaming, or other intensive work that requires a lot of processing. Other tasks that require the processor to work harder are graphics, CAD, audio recording, and video editing and viewing. You will notice on your dell, that you can actually hear the fan go through different speeds depending on how much work the processor is doing. It can get loud, and you may even think that maybe something is wrong with your fan, but that's just the fan attempting to cool the processor as it's working. This is software controlled based on the temperature reading of the processor chip. To use a quieter mode, you can enter your bios during startup, and find the fan settings. Change the fan setting to the quieter mode (it actually reads something like "quiet mode" or office mode" or something like that - very easy to determine. Then save your settings and exit bios. I need to tell you though, it's not much quieter. There are quieter fans you could buy for your CPU, but it may not be worth it to you. I had my cpu sitting on top of a side desk, and it was unreasonably loud. I plaecd it on the floor under the desk, and now I can barely hear it. Maybe you need to place your cpu further away from you in such a way. You can even get foam and "soundproof" your cpu, remembering of course, not to cover the ventilation holes in your case, or cover any part of the processor or motherboard - just the interior walls of the case. A lot of techs I know who need their processor near them (disk and rear panel access) use this technique. Hope this helps.
