You should replace the heat sinc and cooling unit. (possible the processor if it has suffered from extreme heat.) I don't know how computer savey you are but that is a process not recomended for beginners. If you know what you are doing though, it won't be that bad of a fix.

Try to unplug it for a while and put it back again, make sure you have a fan facing your computer.

Makes sounds.


Where does the sound seem to be coming from?
If the sound is coming from the rear (rear fan), it might be the power supply.
If the sound is coming from the inside of the computer, the problem might be another fan on the inside (such as the CPU fan). If that is the case, then usually the computer will turn on for a short time and then cut off. When this happens, the computer when on, overheats and then shuts off.
Hope this helps! Let me know if it does and please vote. Thanks!

Overheating motherbord


When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

My ps3 doesnt seem to register the game disc when i insert it also when iv been playing fifa online it cuts out sometimes or other times the commentator voice goes away as does the crowd noise but the game...


Sounds like an internal issue. I suggest reformatting the HDD by going to the settings menu. But before you reformat I strongly suggest you create a backup of your data because everything will be erased. You can create the backup through the settings menu as well.

Cuts off unexpectively


In the control panel, there is an icon for power settings. Set the fan for maximum cooling. Make sure the exhaust ports on the computer are blown out. Don't use the computer on a soft surface.

AC button blinking


hi mercedes,

here is another thread that is almost similar to your problem, i just paste it here with my reply...

1985 toyota Camery in hot weather the car AC quits and will not engage the pump. After it cools the pump will come on again. When this happens the AC button in the car blinks. i know this is a vacuum and/or temperature sensor but i don't know which one it is. The manual I have does not say anything about it. Other wise the AC works just fine. Ron Comment by Ron0293, posted on Sep 27, 2008When I first turn it on the AC is working fine, blowing cold air all the time, the clutch pump is in gauged...when the problem occurs the clutch disingauges and then no cold air.. Comment by Ron0293, posted on Sep 27, 2008When I first turn it on the AC is working fine, blowing cold air all the time, the clutch pump is in gauged...when the problem occurs the clutch disingauges and then no cold air.. It is a sensor somewhere telling the pump to turn off. Comment by Ron0293, posted on Sep 28, 2008there is nothing wrong with the whole AC system when the compressor is pumping! no holes, no leaks, no heater problems or fan problems. The compressor keeps cutting out when the temperature starts to climb. I believe the system has a motor vacuum load/temp. sensor that cuts the AC out when the motor temp. rises from extra load. IE: like going up a long hill. I just don';t know where the sensor is located and the clutch wiring from the compressor is impossible to follow, as it is buried in a wire harrness. Comment by Ron0293, posted on Sep 29, 2008 There are two fans located at the rear of the radiator. They don't seem to be running when the AC pump cuts out. There is a sensor switch on the dryer. when the pump is acting up if i disconnect the sensor wiring the fans start running on high. There is also another sensor on the pump and when i disconnect it the fans start running on high. replacing the wiring returns the fans to off.
There is also a sensor, seems to be internal on the pump and when I disconnect it nothing happens. if(typeof LIB_LOADED == 'undefined'){document.write(''); } Add a Comment

Check out your BIOS setting if u can manipulate fan speeds from it then you can solve your problem by playing with the the setting.

Seems that The fan has failed, usually PC's are set by default to shutdown in instance of a fan failure, you have to figure out with fan is bad, also troubleshoot a little more before you deem the fan is faulty. You can do this by maybe changing the fan's powered supply but using a different unused PSU female connector. Pls do not misunderstand, thinking that I'm telling you to replace PSU, just use a different wire to supply it. Again, these are just a few troubleshooting methods, before deeming the fan is bad,

But all in all it just sounds like the fan is bad.
