My Dehumidifer runs, but does not collect any water. The fan and condenser both are working/running, but no water is collecting in the bucket. There is plenty of moisture in the air for the the unit to take in.
My Toshiba dehumidifer (fan and condenser) working but no water? problem started when the smooth humming changed to louder humming & water stopped

When my fan runs loud this usually means the heatsink behind the fan is clogged with dust. So your fan is working harder to get the same amount of cooling. Just go buy a can of compressed air belower and spray that clogged dust out of your heatsink
b> Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact. Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.
In order to address this the unit must be taken apart, remove fan and clean with compressed air, next remove the heat sink, four spring loaded screws turn one "small amount" go diaganal do the same and the next two until removed from the processor ic, blow out any dirt, next remove old silicon grease with rubbing alcohol, apply fresh thermal grease to the ic and heat sink "small amount" and assemble.This will solve most issues.
Possible that the processor cooling fan is clogged as it can happen if the laptop is worked on top of beds or cushions wherein it can **** up fiber and clog the fan or the cooling systemYou can remove the processor unit from the bottom, inspect the ventillation windows and clear the dirt and reset
Hi. The most common cause of overheating is a build up of dust inside the laptop, mainly on the fan blades and the heatsink, This dust also collects around the exhaust and becomes matted together like a quilt, blocking the hot air from escaping the unit, causing the laptop to overheat and shut down to protect the CPU from damage. You could try to clear the blockage with a can of compressed air, although in many cases this does not work. It all depends on the level of blockage. If this does not work, and if you feel confident about taking the laptop apart to remove the blockage, you could try this... http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a215/disassemble-display-panel-1.htm Information courtesy of irisvist.com. Hope you will find this helpful.
Pull the access cover off of your fan on the bottom off your laptop and blow it out with canned air. Wipe off the fins of your fan and blow once again from the exhaust port where the heat blows out from when fan is on. You'd be amazed at how much dust is there. Reinstall cover and you should be good to go. : )
Based on the information you provided there could be couple of reasons atleast:
1) Looks like the fan is having issues and needs to be replaced.
2) There is some CPU intensive programs (or background program . a virus?) running in the background.
You may want to run the Antivirus scan once to check for some unwanted background programs.
If it doesn't solve the issue, then probably the fan needs replacing.
Thanks and do tell if it did solve your problem.
the fan vanes are clogged, this may happen if you have pets or live in a humid region. take the unit apart and remove the heat sink from the laptop, get some arctic ice silicone from a computer store and apply an amount equal to that of a piece of rice to the processor (after first cleaning of the residue on the heat sink), clean the cooling vanes out and replace the heat sink, put the unit back together and the unit should not overheat again. The silicone will take a while to solidify to the optimum.
Dell Inspiron 5150, has overheating problems. The position of the fan is a problem.Also,don't press of the left upper corner of the laptop.Here's an excerpt from a wikipedia article:
"The overheating problems on the Inspiron 5150 model was due to the position of the fan and fan-vent and the way in which it vents air through the CPU's heatsink. The fan draws air from underneath the unit and vents it through the rear after passing over the heatsink. However, the unit also sucks up dust from underneath it. Over time a buildup of dust constricts the airflow through the unit, reducing cooling. The airflow is perceptibly diminished. A simple test is to place a hand near the fan vent; when the fan is running at high speed there should be a good flow of warm air. Heat will also build up along the top of the unit near the LCD display and left toward the optical drive. Users may notice this while typing. Performance may also suffer, with jittery game movement and slow Windows performance. Some systems may experience jerky reactions where the unit goes into an almost slow-motion phase for short periods of time. Continued operation in this condition may lead to overheating and could result in permanent damage to the CPU, GPU, motherboard and other internal components. To remedy this the unit must be disassembled, the dust removed, and fan operation checked. This problem not uncommonly results in a CPU temperature-increase of between 15-20°C over an normally functioning unit. Further temperature increases may damage the casing of the unit."From Wikipedia article"Dell Inspiron" under problems
