Ours kept stopping as it overheated - soluion was to get a chap platform to elevate the laptop which allowed it to 'breathe' a bit better and hasn't stopped since. We orginally had it directly on the desk so the air wasn't circulating

How does a heater cause overheating?


Here's a thought. If you use the a/c it turns on a radiator fan. If you changed it over to heat the a/c fan shuts off. So if the cooling fan was broke all a long then you wouldn't notice until you turned the heat on. How did I think this up. I owned a Ford once.

Over heating


If this vehicle has the original or old(defective) thermostat, this can cause overheating if its stuck closed(defective). The engine cooling fan has a clutch, If defective the fan will just spin, not fast enough to cool the engine and cause overheating. The radiator is clogged, can cause overheating. A simple check for the radiator is when vehicle has been running awhile, engine is hot, shut the vehicle off and open the hood and carefully reach your hand down between engine fan and radiator and quickly palm the radiator at the top, middle, and bottom and if the warm temp by feel is about the same, most likely the radiator is not the problem. Good luck, best regards.

My samsung rs2630sh is very very hot to the touch


The fan you should replace is called the condenser fan. It's the one that blows air across the outside coils. When it fails, you'll usually notice abnormal heating of the front of the divider between freezer and fridge.

Xbox 360 overheats on startup


there could be hardware problems! mine never gave the two lights when it started it but when playing certain games it overheated and thats whats happening.. i got upset and opened mine up[ voids warrenty for three red lights] and added a 3 inch fan with a 12 v converter for its on power. i set it in on the heat sink and the bottom right corner of the xbox..

so i think you should get a powerful 3inch by 3inch fan with its on power supply and set ur xbox so you can point the fan at the bottom of the xbox! this will help! dont open ur xbox just set a powerful fan[ radio shack, walmart, hardware store] and let it cool the bottom of ur xbox!!!!!!!!

Cheapist way

!!items needed!!!

1. 12 v dc brushless fan

1. 12 volt ac power adapter that hooks up to the wall and the fan for a Direct Current!
thats it may cost over 20 and walmart is cheap and a little less quality

but as long as air pushing on the bottom of ur xbox is moving fast[ dont put the fan to close] so heat is transfered ur good

52" Samsung that the top half of screen goes black.


the HDTV has a heat-related problem check your fans. Do they remove heat? the vertical chips paint the screen from top to middle and, middle to bottom so; your top to middle vertical chip is overheating as is your video chip; that is why you have "glitter" in the back ground. get rid of the heat or, bye,bye TV.

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.

Over heating of laptop


Causes of Laptop Overheating Physical Causes of Laptop Overheating
For a properly designed laptop, the most common cause of overheating is blocked air vents. When dust blocks the fans and air vents designed to cool your laptop, overheating results. (In some cases, blocked vents and poor design are related, as some designs are excessively prone to becoming clogged with dust).
Software Causes of Laptop Overheating
In other cases, laptops overheat because the software designed to protect the laptop – specifically by controlling the operation of cooling fans – does not work properly. In some cases, this is due to problems in the computer’s BIOS, and can be cured by upgrading to the most recent BIOS. In other cases, upgrading or changing the computer’s operating system can cause this software to not function.
If, for example, you have upgraded from Windows ME to Windows XP, the system software designed to operate the fans may no longer work properly. (What’s worse, the laptop manufacturer may refuse to provide support in this instance, on the grounds that you changed the operating system and so are no longer operating the system as it was designed to operate.) In other cases, replacing Windows with Linux has led to this problem if the proper Linux utilities to control laptop cooling were not installed.
Design Causes of Laptop Overheating
In a distressing number of cases, laptop overheating results from poor design by the notebook manufacturers. Some manufacturers cram desktop CPUs into laptop configurations, and do not adequately provide for releasing the heat that these desktop CPUs create. Others simply have failed to provide ventilation and cooling systems appropriate for today’s CPU and video chips, which hold many more transistors than in the past and so generate more heat.
Several class actions have been filed against laptop manufacturers due to overheating laptops, including Toshiba and Dell. Previous class actions have led to settlements under which compensation was awarded to owners of overheating laptops who ran up repair bills trying to get the problem fixed. More class actions related to overheating laptop and notebook computers are reportedly under consideration.check here for more information http://www.fonerbooks.com/lap_fan.htm
