To open the computer there will be 2 screws on the back on the side edge at the top and bottom, remove these and slide the side panel of the computer backwards and it should come off and you will see the fan in front of you, use a can CO contact cleaner (safe to use on all electrical parts) or canned air, if your computer is a different setup (as the make and model was not provided) send me the make and model and i'll get back to you with a more detailed answear

Dell 370 fan runs loud and won't start

If the fan is failing the most times the computer will not start because it will overheat. There are two fans inside the system, one inside the Power Supply and one that sits on the motherboard.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the case, Remove the cover and with a can of compressed air blow out the dust inside the computer. Clean the dust away from the Fans, Vents, CPU and Heat Sink are that sits under the Fan on the motherboard.

My Dell Precision M6 shuts down when viewing a video from an ad, or U Tube or TNT, USA, etc?


when the CPU is hard at work such as viewing a video or listening to music, the fan usually ahs to work harder. the fact that the system shuts down is act of fsuing the notebook to avoid further damage. you have to clean the fan (lots of dust gathers around it inside). Make sure system is shut down, unplug power cord from notebook. Remove battery, memory, hard disk drive, DVD ROM/burner. Take the bottom case cover off entirtely and clean by using strong blower to eliminate the dust . Go over withs everal passes until no more debris is evident . Take a small screw driver place inside the fins of the fan, hold it from spinning while removing the dust with blower.

HP Pavilion dv1000 PC Notebook My PC shuts down automatically

This is a common problem for many laptops.Its shutdown because of over heating.msoufeer5_2.jpg
Each mobile processoe has a max temperature rating. when the temperature reches certain degree
the processor shuts itself down to prevent damaging the chip.The number 1 cause of heat related issue is dust bunnies.

Dust is a pretty good insulator and it will block your laptop's airflow when it build up over time.The easiest way clean it is to use a can of compressed air and it through the air flow event.

If you are handy you can also take out the key board and clean the inside. you can see the cooling
fan on most laptop once you removed the key board.In some case even the out side look clean but
if you take apart the fan assembly you will see tha ther's still dust collecting inside

Clean dust and try again

My computer hangs/stop responding expectedly and when i check the processor , it very hot , !!! help me plz ...!!!


You can try to disasseble your desktop and check if the processor fan is not working properly. Try to clean accumulated dust and replace it if needed. Also add more fans to decrease temperature inside the system. Do not operate your desktop as possible, it may do further damage to other components of the system.

Hope this helps.

It shutdown on and off after 2,3 5, or 7 minutes with video and audio it will shutdown more : thank (dell sx280) alex thank

It will be overheating.
1) open the casing and clean out any dust inside the machine, be very careful with individual components
2) turn on the computer with the case open and watch to see if any fans fail to start spinning
If you clean it out and the fans are all working your computer should be a bit more reliable now, otherwise it is a faulty component you will have to replace.

It needs cleaning out, there's probably loads of dust/fluff blocking the ventilation slots, CPU fan and air ducting inside.

Back side panel too heat producing.restarting every 1 hour once .

I had the same problem, but after removing dust from the inside it works just fine. Although the fan was working it prevented cooling. I recommend trying that first, there's a manual at the dell-page how to open it, and it really needs just a cleaning

Fan sounds is very high

it may be lots of dust inside the computer. the more dust inside, the less airflow. i suspect your computer might be getting too warm, which makes the fans spin in overdrive. if you open up the pc, be sure to remove all power sources before you start fiddling with screwdrivers... (it's for your own safety)

well sometimes there are fixable if going to try use a small flat head screw driver and find the plastic clamps and gently pry if you break one don't cry because you probably have to buy a new anyway but its the learning experience you get by having the balls to try. well if you get it open check for dust chunks they do **** up a lot of dust be prepared for serious dust bunnies read the label is it bearingless or ball bearing give the blower blade a good spin does it seem a little wobbley or does it seem to want to stop as soon as you spin it then get a 9v battery and check if it will spin at all if it does put back together and thank GOD you didn't have to shell out that much money for little piece of plastic and a motor and if you do have to buy one pray to GOD you find a cheap one those super blows can get ridious on prices. well have a nice day (compaqsiget over and out have a nice day)
