How to stop over heating laptops or computers.


1. Fix Internal Cooling. The first and most important thing you need to do when your laptop is overheatingis to clean the fan(s) that provide(s) cooling to the CPU and graphics card. Over time, they build up layers of dust and dirt that slow them down and block airflow.
A laptop that severely overheats causes damage to the internal components. Before this happens, the laptop should attempt to shut itself down. ... If you smell smoke, a burning odor, the fans never run or the fan runs all the time, be careful to avoid ruining your laptop.
The most common cause of laptop overheating is a non-working fan. ... Viruses, spyware, adware and other types of malware put a heavy strain on the CPU and other components of your laptop. This causes those components to heat up, often to a point where the fan simply cannot move enough air over them to cool them down.
Determine Whether Your Computer Is Overheating or Just Hot. Laptops get hot. It's what they do. However, if your laptop is shutting down, suffering from the blue screen of *****, or experiencing serious slowdowns, then you have a much bigger problem on your hands.
A laptop that severely overheats causes damage to the internal components. Before this happens, the laptop should attempt to shut itself down. ... If you smell smoke, a burning odor, the fans never run or the fan runs all the time, be careful to avoid ruining your laptop.
Heat is a computer's enemy. Computers are designed with heat dispersion and ventilation in mind so they don't overheat. If too much heat builds up, your computermay become unstable, suddenly shut down, or even suffer component damage.

My dell latitude D610 laptop gets heated up after a few minutes I the start the laptop and eventually shuts down.


  • There is a possibility that the fan of your laptop is not working. Make sure when you power on the laptop the fan is running. And if the fan is not working replace it so that your laptop will not heat up and it will not shut down.
Feel free to reply this solution if you have further questions. Thank you.

I have a toshiba satellite a215 s7422 and it keeps shutting down on me so i disassembled it and cleaned out the fan but it still keeps shutting down...i recently had the bios reset, i don't know if that...


You should look for the following answers.
(1) Are you operating your laptop in a in a hot and dusty environment (If yes you should know that computers do not like hot and dusty environments and they shut down to avoid a complete burn out of the machine more over the dust particles also can destroy the hardware and block internal fan ventilation ducts in between the CPU and the fan).
(2) When the your laptop PC shuts down place your hand underneath the laptop and try to feel hot spots. If you find areas unusually heated then this is the main cause of the shut down.
(3) If just after the shut down and a good usage the Laptop is cool then underneath than overheating shut down might not be the case.
If you determined that heating is the cause and you cannot change your environment than you should look for other heavy duty laptops that are robustly designed for hot environments.
I do not think that resting the BIOS can cause this.

My brand new acer aspire 5515 laptop keeps shutting down


Return it for service. This is a defect. The fan should run until the heat is below the temp threshold.

Toshiba A65-S1062 - This laptop overheats and shuts down.


I bet that you had your laptop on all the time.
Your heat sink is saturated with dust and grit.
you may have to open up the unit and use a can of dust remover to clean the fins on the heat sink out. it is causing your CPU to shut down bucause it is becoming overheated.
Happy Fixing =)

Comptuer shuts down


This may happen due to few reasons.
1. If the laptop is heating up.
2. Virus/Spyware Infections
3. Program conflicts on the computer.

Boot your computer in the safe mode or in BIOS and than let it be on, monitor if it still shuts down after the same time, if it does that it is an heating issue.( Also see if the body heats up abnormally).

If it does not than you should scan your computer for the virus/spyware.

let me know what happens.

Shuts downs


Sounds like an overheating problem. The hard drive spins and generate heat in software installation. Editing pictures loads the CPU that heats up. Make sure the laptop is well ventilated. Try to use a laptop cooler.
