Hi there
This is normal if you use a pentium or an apple mac, computers generate lots of heat and when on, inside the laptop bag it will generate even more heat because some of the bags are insulated too.
If i happens again just make sure you turn it of and put it in a cool environment so the heat will dissperse, also listen to make sure the system fan comes on, if it doesn't have it looked at because it will not last long without the fan

Regards

The computer was probably not turned off to begin with, and thus it was active emitting heat. This heat had nowhere to go since it was in a case and heated the laptop to a high degree. If there is any damage it would be a very, very small amount.

It gets very hot and turns itself off. I took it apart and cleaned all dust and dirt away... it is really clean now! But when I turn it on again the fan works a little and goes off... after a while it...


The problem is with your Cleaning!
I think that you've removed the Heat sink and wiped off all the Thermal Paste off the processor while cleaning the laptop.
Please don't switch on your computer the processor could get damaged. To solve this Purchase Thermal Paste appropriate for your laptop from a local store and apply it carefully on top of the processor and install the heat sink above it firmly this should solve the problem.
To be more safe watch the video below first:

How do i hook up my new netbook


I think this is what you are looking for:

Google "digital gadgets.com". There find "Sylvania Products". Then click on "7 inch netbook support" and follow directions.

For item # 4, you find your "hot spot" name and click "connect".


For item # 5, you may have to call your Internet Service Provider (Charter, AT&T or whoever you pay for your internet) in order to get your "network keys" fill that in and then click "OK".

Next be sure you go to "Start", "Settings", "Control Panel", "Internet Options", "General" and complete "user agent (requires browser restart" by selecting:
"Default (same as windows XP)" or
"Same As Pocket PC" or
"Windows CE".

I selected "default" and was off and running.

Although this isn't a "lap-top" it is a really neat little machine and does a lot of stuff almost like one. It should be great for travel! It is a little slow and has small memory, but it's inexpensive and usb/sd ports are there. A regular universal mouse helps-just plug it into a USB port. I'm doing internet, movies, YouTube, word processing,etc like everything and I think a lot of people have way under-rated this fun little machine!

Although this isn't a "lap-top" it is a really neat little machine and does a lot of stuff almost like one. It should be great for travel! It is a little slow and has small memory, but it's inexpensive and usb/sd ports are onboard. A regular universal mouse helps-just plug it into a USB port. I'm doing internet, movies, word processing,etc like everything and I think a lot of people are way under-rating this fun little machine.

However, these little netbooks have very little memory/space in them and I am sure that oovoo is way way to large for this to handle.

Need To Upgrade Or Somehow Add A New Graphics Card


There is a way, yes, but it requires a few tools and no fear as you rip into the laptop case. I could explain this in detail but I'll leave you with this tutorial on the 'HOW-TO' side of things to browse at your leasure:

http://www.pcworld.com/article/148909/upgrading_your_laptops_graphics_card.html

However, upgrading the RAM will improve speed (if that's what you're really going for). Otherwise, adding a more powerful card may not increase your screen resolution but can add more kick to your gaming experience.

If you're just looking for a little more speed with higher resolution, I'd upgrade the RAM a bit and purchase an external flat screen 1080P 22" monitor that'll plug right into the back of the laptop. It will save you the frustration of possibly damaging the internals of your pc and the disappointment when you realize that the increase in performance isn't worth the risks/effort involved in switching out the cards.

Boggs down after 2-3 minutes.


Yeah after boot up the cooling fan should kick in. If it does not and it is a laptop it will get too hot in there. Thermal Shutdown protection will kick in, if it is equip. If in 2-3 minutes it got so hot reaching its preset temperature shutdown, it will be down to prevent damage to the system.
