Question about Dell Latitude D800 Notebook
Hi. When i play media on my Dell D800 (streaming video or music) it has developed a problem where the cooling fan comes on very loudly and suddenly the processor slows right down. I have to re-start to get performance speed up again. Can anyone help me?
Yeah the slowdown is the laptop throttling back due to overheating.
When you do processor-intensive work like - streaming videos - the laptop overheats. The fans come on loudly.
When the computer heats up despite the fans, the processor throttles back to relieve the heat.
When you reboot your machine, it stops performing intensive work, giving it a chance to cool down. It's not restarting that fixed the problem it's the fact that the laptop cooled down.
So here's what you do. Get an air duster and blow all the dust and gunk out from your fans. They are most likely clogged with dust and that's what's causing your cooling problems. If there are large dustballs in there, use a tweezers and pull them out. Get as much out as possible.
