What couldn't be wrong with it...
Well, firstly, if the fan is not humming away loudly then there's an issue with either the fan driver being scewed (meaning you need to return it to the manufactuer) or not plugged in (if not on at all, and then you'll need to open it up and well, plug in the fan, I've seen this once happen on a BRAND new lappy.)

There could also be copious amounts of dust inside the heatsinks, so take some canned compressed air (available from most hardware or electronic stores for about 15 bucks) and blow into the vents (while being sure to use a straightened paperclip inside a vent to keep the fan from spinning to avoid fan burnout.) Dust really does make a LOT of heat.
Now if this has been always or recently also matters, if always then it's probably a slight oversight (could be a number of things like cpu paste or heatsink issues or even driver problems) by the manufactuer and they will need to take care of it (since I'm not so keen into going through how to do that with novices). If recently, then try using system restore to revert your drivers, and again, using the can of compressed air.
Heat is the enemy of electronics, and the faster they go typically the more heat they generate. Your computer is slowing itself down to avoid killing itself with that "extreme" heat, it's a smart feature that's been around for the past 10 years. (more or less). If all that doesn't work, then try running the laptop in a slightly colder environment, and see if that does anything. Also investing in a laptop cooler might be worthwhile, seeing as this seems to be a hot machine, no matter if it's slowing down or not. Hope this helps.
Stay Spicy and happy lappying!

I have a Mazda 6 2004 when I am driving the air gets hot and when I slow down it gets cold what could be the problem?

Coolant flow through the heater slows considerably at low engine speeds and can often be stopped by air or gas in the cooling system gathering in a convenient place, which in many cars is the heater, as engine speed rises the rate of flow increases and the (air) blockage can be overcome.

It is normal for gas bubbles to leak from the cylinder head gasket and a well designed cooling system will allow gas bubbles to escape easily into the degassing tank (coolant reservoir). Sometimes the degassing system becomes blocked or restricted and sometimes a failing cylinder head gasket produces more gas than the system can handle.

How to clean up start up processes

Questions about optimize start up:
How to remove program from start up?
My computer boots very slow? How do I clean up start up processes?
Windows startup very slow, how to fix it?

Why clean up start up processes?
Windows Startup program will load the default programs or processes you add to your computer. The test result shows a new system only boot within 30 seconds. As you install antivirus program or other applications, it becomes very slow. Sometimes, the startup gets bloated not due to your computer behaviors. Malicious software is prone to add useless processes on startup without your known. You are not aware that your computer becomes more and more slow until serious computer problem occurs. Don’t ignore a slow start up, it is the root of Blue Screen and computer freezing.

How to clean up start up processes?
The first thing you should do is to remove spyware or adware from your computer. I prefer to AVG, it is a free anti-virus program. If you want to clean virus completely, you need boot in safe mode and disconnect your Internet.

Hok is a professor with over ten year’s computer experience. He suggest us use ErrorFix. This is a pc optimize tool which can clean up system registry entries, useless program, start up processes and junk files. With this program, your computer will be obviously improved. Just a few clicks, you can remove processes that slow your computer.

What’s more to speed up your computer?
Do not download Peer-to-Peer Download Software! Maybe you are using some software such like YouTube Downloader. These are probably some of the least likely contenders for system-slowdown but they are popular on the internet. Those kinds of program can take up memory space and damage your computer. Also they can automatically add itself as your start up.

When running air conditioner smokes blows out dashboard vents.

While there COULD be more than one cause, the FIRST, and most likely to come to my mind is that SOME KIND of LITTER [candy wrapper, paper, plastic bag, etc., etc.] has been SUCKED UP INTO the PLENUM CHAMBER [sometimes called a plenum BOX] air RETURN OPENING [usually located at the front seat passenger's feet].

INSIDE the heater/air conditioning PLENUM CHAMBER [that's the "box" above the passenger's feet] is a small device called a RESISTOR PACKAGE, which basically is a group of three or four COILS of BARE wire which can, and DO, GET VERY HOT [sometimes red hot] in the process of controlling [LIMITING] the speed of the heater/AC BLOWER MOTOR.

When the blower speed is set on HIGH, these resistor coils do nothing, BUT... AT ANY SPEED SETTING OTHER THAN high, these resistors are ACTIVATED, and GET VERY HOT!!!!!

IF combustible litter gets into the plenum, AND becomes LODGED ON one or more of these bare wire resistors, THEN when the blower is operated at any speed other than high speed, the litter will begin to "cook," and will smoke.

IF you're lucky, the litter is slowly converted to ash/Carbon, WITHOUT causing a FIRE, which can happen!!!!!

I STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you get your vehicle into a shop, which IS QUALIFIED [that means well EXPERIENCED!!!!!!!], in the R&R [removal and re-installation] of the resistor package, and have them remove ALL debris not supposed to be on or around the resistors, AND IF it should it be necessary, the R&R and total cleaning of the entire plenum chamber itself!!!!!

How do I control fan speed?

Keeping the fans clean is especially important, because the fans blow out hot air and bring in fresh air to cool down the laptop.

Fans attract dust, however, which can slow them down, resulting in a hot laptop.

If the laptop overheats, vital parts can cease functioning altogether.

Consequently, keeping your laptop's fans clean is crucial.

The fan speed on a laptop can determine how it operates consistently and reliably.

You can slow it down or speed it up, based on the circumstances.

For instance, slowing down the fan speed may be useful in reserving processes or during a prolonged slow time.

Speeding it up is beneficial in keeping the laptop cool during ongoing use or high-traffic times. For the long term, find a happy medium for regular use, so you won't "psyche" out your computer by constantly adjusting the settings.

Click on the Start menu and select "Control Panel." Next, choose "Performance and Maintenance."

Select "Power Saver."

To slow the fan speed, locate the slider next to "CPU Processing Speed" and slide it down by moving across to the left.

To speed up the fan, move the slider to the right.

Press "Apply" and then "OK," if prompted.

Hope this helps

The car seems to be slowing down extreamly fast when im out of gear, its as though i have my handbreak on, and no there isnt a sign on the dashboard so i doubt its somthing to do with the handbreak. i dont...

As long as the gear shift calbe is routed correctly and adjusted correctly you can be sure you have a input spline problem the first sign is hard to engage first gear and hard to engage in reverse the S 40 have known problems for this your dealer should know TSB 43-47

I have a century wirefeed 225 amp welder that goes into a high current state if I shut the machine off for 10 minutes then it will work fine for a couple of welds. I did change the circuit board already.

sounds like a component is over-heating, this would possibley be located on a power resistor attached to a large heat sink, try the set again, when it goes into high speed, detach the plug from the wall socket, taking extream care, gently touch the power resistors for high temperators, these normally run hot so the faulty one will be abnormally hot, be extreamly aware of the large capacitors, they will be fully charged and will give you an awfull belt.
