Question about Apple MacBook Pro Laptop Computer with Intel Duo Core 15.4 Inch PC Notebook
Hi Similar problem with athlon 64, stripped it down twice cleaned out first time and regreased second time didn't cure the problem, went back in and found that one of the air outlets hidden under heatsink had sufficient dust and dirt to stop air coming out the bottom half of the outlet. problem fixed but the fan works harder than it used to when running multple progs. but at least I have it working.

Hi, sounds like your cpu fan might not be working, or heatsink might just need new thermal grease put on to try and cool it better. when your laptop gets to a certain temperature the laptop will reset, to prevent damage to the cpu caused by excess heat. in the bios there is sometimes a option to have the machine switch off or reset at a higher temperature usually 65c - 75c but i would suggest you take it to a shop and have them check it out as damage to the cpu will cost you quite alot.. hope this help :-)

E-machines laptops have heat problems. design flaw. if you registered with e-machines they were sued. e-machines wouldn't admit to this but settlement is very good involving 1. repair with more warranty. 2. exchange with more warranty. 3. cash settlement. this was for new laptops or in my case a new refurbished laptop. i set my laptop in the passenger seat as i'm a truckdriver and noticed heat problems right away. bought a laptop cooler operating on usb from tigerdirect with two fans and high/low settings. no further problems and ran for hours in the latest texas heat. settlement was announced in mid-august and you still have time to get in. thnx me
