Question about Orion (07816) Cooling Fan

1 Answer

Computer shuts down after being on it after a while.

I am not sure if it is the cooling system that is shutting it down to prevent it from over heating the mother board. Has anyone else had this issue? However i am pretty sure it is not a virus.

You are probably right. It a cooling issue. it usually happens when your heatsink gets clogged with dust or the coolant fan stops running. I have installed a softare called speed fan which automatically adjusts the fan speed according to the temperature. It will atleast resolve this issue to some extent. Also you are advised to clean the interiors of your PC with a non-static brush or duster(Dont use the normal paint brushes or a dust cloth. The static electricity can damage your chips). If nothing resolves this issue then you are probably looking at a change of heatsink.

Laptop will not shutdown


Remove the battery and unplug it from the wall. Try holding down the power button for about 8 seconds it should shut down. Just a suggestion! When you shut down your laptop make sure that your shutting down properly at the start button select shut down. If all else fails and this does not work.
You may want to have the power button checked out or the board. Or clean files out and start up programs add-ware or spy-ware may be preventing you from shutting down as well. This is also a common issue that causes very slow shutdowns on any computer system packed up junk having to close out. John

Windows keeps shutting down unexpectedly


Your computer is overheating, it is shutting itself down to prevent damage to the internal components.

Your computer should be serviced by a computer technician. He/she will clean the components and chassis of dust. This will increase airflow over the components, meaning your system will be stable and will not shut down unexpectedly.

Take care!

I can tell you that you may want to have this looked at it may be cluttered dust in the CPU cooling area of your laptop this is the indication. If not checked you will ruin your computer. When a computer gets hot it will shut down laptops are designed to prevent after a certain temperature to shut themselves off to prevent further damage. I would have this inspected right away to make sure that your not blocked up with dust bunnies............John

Hi Have a Dell Pc Windows 7 OS. it will not shut down unless I hold the button. Start-up in good shut down is always a problem


This is a possible malware or virus attack. Your system is encountering data or system corruption preventing it to execute the command during shut down. Best fix is to reinstall Windows 7 in your computer to erradicate all errors and make sure to install an updated security software (antivirus) afterwards.

My laptop sony pntium 3 shuts down suddenly after


There might be dust blocking the heat vents. Use compressed air can to blow out the dust. During summer, dont not use the laptop without a properly cooling system. The motherboard is programmed to cut off power if the heat reaches a particular threshold, to prevent component damage.
Let me know if you need more assistance.

That sounds like either a graphics problem or more likely a memory problem. Try taking out a couple sticks of RAM or leave just one in and try that.

Computer shuts down


Your computer is most likely overheating.

Make sure it is positioned so that none of the vents are blocked on the unit.
Check it with your hand to see if it's overheating, make sure dust is not blocking the vents.
If the issue persists, could be software or a failed cooling system on the unit.

Computer shuts down


  Hi,     I think you might have a cooling issue with the CPU (Main Chip). If the CPU is getting Hot it will shut the system down preventing damage. Check the  inside of the case and be sure that the fan for the CPU is functioning. You might also have your power supply checked as well...
