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

    you can Remove the fan/heatsink assembly. Clean the vanes, clean the old thermal grease off, replace the thermal grease with new grease and use comprssed air to blow if clogged by dust may be during storage but be careful not to void the warranty seal if its still under warranty should incase if its the design cause of over heating if possible you can Add the following to your /etc/modules:

My Compaq Presario F730US keeps overheating the fan does not run properly what docking station do you recommend me to buy


I would recommend cleaning out the vents and geatsink grills with compressed air. I would then remove the heatsink unnit and replace the thermal grease on the heatsink and processor. Most laptops do not need any additional cooling if thier heatsinks are free of dirt, dust and debris. The compressed air can be bought at office supply chains. Just use short bursts of air and clean all the compartments including the cd tray. Just make sure to power down the laptop first and remove the battery.

Dear sir/ madame heating of pc


you need to make sure you are not covering the vents on your laptop. if your laptop is not getting proper ventilation it will shutdown and can cause a critical systems error if it keeps happening. make sure you are not using the laptop on carpeted surfaces, covers, etc. If you are using the laptop on the proper area, like a glass / wooden table make sure your fan is kicking on. if your fan is not working then it has to be repaired.
