I'll give you some things to try first but i will need to know the model of your notebook.

locate the fan and while the notebook is turned off blast some air inside the vents to clear out any dust that may be making a nice sweater on the cpu heatsink inside.

link for canned air ----> http://www.mikescomputershop.com/dust-canned-p-3.html

The next option would be to go into the bios and set the fan speeds but again i would need to know the make and model of your notebook.

My lap top dosent have a high speed usb port so my comp runs slower because my dongle is high speed how can i download a high speed usb for free


The USB is a hardware item and cannot be downloaded. you will have to update your computer or at least the motherboard. You more than likely have a USB1.1 and you need a USB 2.0 for the high speed.

All my saved pictures have been deleted and the screen continually goes blank


Greetings and thanks for the question, there are various reasons why this happens. Without having your computer here to see what is going on is anybody s guess on how to repair it. If I may offer some suggestions. Since I also do not know what operating system you are using I will assume it is Win 7.
I would personally go to control panel and check my power options to make sure I do not have the settings set you close display or sleep mode or anything set to soon to close your machine down. Often times people have these set to go off there are defaulted usually to save battery usage and your lap top from getting to hot and shutting it down. The thermal switch may be activating sooner than normal. What some folks do is purchase one of those underneath fan coolers to keep their lap tops from getting to hot and constantly shutting down.
This can be the case have this checked out at least set the lap top for more time before closing down or turning the monitor off. Let us hope it is not more serious than appears. Like a lamp in the monitor going out. If it is new the lap top I would not worry about that issue because it is intermittent. Which leads me to believe it is a thermal or a shut down issue. Get the cooler fan for your lap top I recommend anyone that reads this post to also do this as well. Clean your lap top blow them out it is critical to do this to keep dust away and keep it clean.
Now there is recovery software which is free to download Click Here to check this out to retrieve lost files. Also important to get those precious memories separate off your computer and on to separate CD or DVD or storage USB stick so that when this type of thing happens you have not lost your precious memories. I hope this helps you. John

Intell-Touch instructions for casablanca fan/light


Light Operation: With the light in the off position press and hold the light button (do not let go). The lights should start at a dim setting and gradually get brighter and brighter. When they get to a setting you desire let go of the light button. To reduce the brightness of the light you must first turn the light off, and then press the light button and hold it in as described above. If the light is off, and you press the light button quickly to turn it on, the light will go back to the previous setting. So if you last had the light on the high setting, it will go back to the high setting, if you had the light at a lower setting it will turn back on to the lower setting. Keep in mind you can increase the light intensity at any time by pressing and holding the light button, but to decrease the light intensity, you must first turn the light off, and start over by pressing and holding in the light button.
Fan Operation: With the fan in the off position, press and hold the fan button (do not let go). The fan should start at a slower speed and get faster and faster. When the fan is at the speed you desire, let go of the fan button. To slow down the fan speed you must first turn the fan speeds off by pressing and releasing the fan button. If the fan speeds are off, and you press the fan button quickly to turn it on, the fan will go back to the previous setting. So if you last had the fan at the highest setting, it will go back to the high setting, if you had the fan at a lower setting it will turn back on to the lower setting. Keep in mind you can increase the fan speed at any time by pressing and holding the fan button, but to decrease the fan speed you must first turn the fan off, and start over by pressing and holding in the fan button.

Kenmore over the stove microwave,model # 721.62629200,only low speed fan works on the keypad,no high speed fan.


The fan has a setting for high speed, low, and off. Fan only running at low speed.This indicates problem towards. 1) the fan motor. 2) The loose fan wiring. 3) The fan switch. IN the unit there is a motor for fan.If the motor gets weak or short. The fan will run but only at low speed.Because at high speed the motor will require more power to run.In this case motor needs to be checked and replaced. The other possibility is the fan wiring.There are two wires going from fan to motor and two going from motor to power board.If any of this wire is got loose or getting short then this will stop the fan to run in high speed.In this case the wires needs to be checked and reconnected properly. In the unit there is a switch internally.When you select the fan to high speed mode the switch goes up. when you select the fan to low speed mode the switch turns down.But if the switch is faulty or got worn out.Then it will not move properly up/down.In this case switch needs to be replaced.IN some brand models the High speed and low speed are directly controlled from front control panel.There is no switch in that models.In that case the control panel needs to be checked and replaced. Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Lap top keeps rebooting


Sounds like it could be an overheating problem if it happens after a long period of operation. Try downloading a hardware control utility to check the CPU temperature and control fan speed. look here

Of course this assumes that you can reboot after the pc is switched off for a time.

My Hunter fan will only switch from high to low speed and won't


if the three speed switch is functioning the middle speed winding is bad.  Either replace the fan or hook up a wall speed control and keep the fan on high.

Shuts off in the middle of use for no reason


it sounds like an overheating problem there is a sensor that detect heat to stop from damaging the computer check to see if the fan is running and that its not clogged with dust.also you can try a laptop cooling pad this may help. but make sure the fan in the computer is running and uo to speed you may need a new cooling fan.if it keeps shutting down you may need to have the processor temp checked.with a infared heat sensening gun.
