The only safe way to clean the vents is with compressed air. I don't know how old your computer is but when the fan starts making noise and overheating then it is time to replace the power supply. Continued use may destroy your CPU cause of overheating.

Try using Compressed Air in a can by the vents. I would not recommend taking apart the laptop.

My compaq presario cq56 laptop come on and goes off


Sounds like it's overheating, if it comes on for a few seconds or even minutes. Turn it upside down, and clean up the cooling fan with a nice dry paintbrush. You may need to remove a back cover to get to the fan though.

1.replace fan.
2..clean fan [you will have to dismantle laptop or take to shop].
If you clean your fans your self ,always hold fan bladesand dont let them spin as they can back feed and damage your cpu or graphic card. DT.

I have a compaq presario that seems to get too hot and cause problems. The fan is also quite noisy. Do you think it needs a new fan?


There is nothing wrong with the fan. Please go to a computer technician and check the coolant inside which require to maintain the temperature. Over the period it gets evaporated/dried up. Also make sure the air vents are clean and th computer is used in a place where there is sufficient air flow.

You probably are blocking the vents, or had it in a dusty area. make sure that all the vents have space, including the ones on the bottom.

It is quite possible that you need to replace the cooling fan. You can get used parts for this machine on Ebay pretty cheap now. I have seen the fan assy go for about $8-20.00. They are a bit of a job to replace. Just take your time.
