Nc6320 - overheating - how to clean it up?

Hi guys,
I've got since more than 2 years nc6320 and now it's bottom has started to get very hot. The fans are working like crazy...
I suppose it is caused by dust on the fans or such things, but I have no experience how to open the laptop. Has got anyone idea where I can find specifications or instructions how to open it?
Thanks in advance

    My nc6320 heats up even before the OS launches! Very frustrating to use. Can I open the back and clean the fan myself or should I send it to the tech guys? Thanks, Tina

    I had the same problem - now is worst - the fan is not working at all. Tried to open the notebook and couldn't.

Clean advent 5611 fan

Laptops are notorious for overheating. The fan and cooling vents also get clogged easily. Even a 'clean' place has some dust in the air, and it is attracted by the fan and static. Canned air will take care of some of it. Opening the laptop is complicated and not for the weak of heart. When the laptop is running, you'll feel air movement. spray through that vent with the laptop turned off.

I m trying to upgrade my HP compaq nc6320 RAM MEMORY from 1GB to 4GB, Do i need BIOS upgrade if yes from were i can find the drivers and how can i do it? thanx i am gone wait for respond......


As far as I know, the machine supports 4GB of ram, so you purchase the ram modules from a pc parts dealer and install them inside the machine, removing the existing ram, there are 2 slots, so you need 2, 2GB cards.

You do not require any drivers or bios update.

Windows will need to be upgraded to 64Bit version if you wish to use the full capacity. as normal windows is limited to 3-3.75GB

Further questions? let me know.

My laptop seems to be overheating in the top left corner underneath (when holding the laptop upright as in use) and it gets so hot that it turns itself off. Any ideas how I go about getting it fixed? Its...

This could be caused by either a broken cooling fan, or a clog in the fan system, trapping the hot air in the laptop and tripping a heat sensor to turn the laptop off. To check for this, remove the laptop case (several small screws on the bottom) and check for a hairball like clog somewhere in the path of the cooling system. This is common when laptops are used in places with pets and/or smokers.

Dell Latitude D531 is overheating and switching off

A good cleaning of the inside will mostly help a great deal. Take the keyboard off and blow it out with canned air (available at tech. stores and large department stores.. Target/Walmart) On the bottom take off all the covers and use the air there also. As a last effort blow into all ports and any other openning, After you have done this replace all covers and keyboard. It should help a great deal...if not your efforts are not wasted. If it does not help you better put it in the hands of a tech. Good luck

My VW Cabrio is overheating after 1-2 miles. Coolant in recovery tank is boiling by this time and making bubbling noises. Someone changed radiator hoses, flange, some housing. They are saying that radiator...

Run the engine and look at the header tank , is there lots of air bubbles coming back out of the water if is then the head gasket may have split and that is down to either a can of Radweld or a strip down repair

If the radiator is not uniformly hot them I would go for that as your problem

Normal operation is that the engine starts the thermostat is closed , engine block heats up and opens water starts to circulate around the block

So to check that you need to fill the radiator with cold water run it for a few minutes check the bottom hose it should be cold

The stat opens and the bottom hose should get hot as the water from the block is pumped into the radiator for cooling.

The radiator should get hot all over and the cooling fan should kick in when the sensor hits the over limit stop.

If that does not happen then get someone to remove the stat altogether (It is only there to get the engine block warm quickly in cold regions )

In which case the bottom hose should go from cold to warm to hot

Macbook fans high speed always

Hi, this can come form a lot of things, harware or software related. Software related: The easiest solution would be to backup your data and do a "clean install". hardware related: the easiest solution is to test your hard drive using the disk utility, and repair it if needed. If you have added extra memory, take it out to be sure that they are not the cause.

Laptop getting very hot

Make sure that the internal fan is cycling or working. if this fan is not running, it will allow the laptop to reach unsafe temperatures that will damage the circuitry over time.

Replace the cooling fans if they are not functioning.
