Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook

3 Answers

My Dell Inspiron B 130 laptop computer is running hot

The heat is coming from the left rear (me facing computer) near the thermal module. After approximately 30-40 minutes the computer will cut off and sometimes it will give an error message (m1004).

I know that I need a fan because I don;t hear it running, I need to knoiw the serial number of the fan and the screws to remove for access.

Hi,

Dell Inspiron B130 Fan Assembly GC055515VH-A - 0MD538
http://www.lapzone.com/servlet/the-1624/GC055515VH-dsh-A--0MD538-/Detail

If you take of the bottom panel, it should be as simple as unscrewing the old and replacing them in the reverse order.

Hope this helps

Dell inspiron n 4010 hangs often


I suggest you open the laptop, and clean it out first. THEN go on with the diagnoses.

Dell Support > Inspiron n4010 Notebook PC > Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/insN4010/en/sm/index.htm

1) FIRST remove all power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

2) FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components on a computer.

Relieve your body of Static.

You should use an ESD wrist strap, and connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source.
This is an example of an ESD wrist strap,

This pictorial guide for disassembly of an Inspiron n5010, should help also.

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/taking-apart-dell-inspiron-n5010-inspiron-15r-laptop/comment-page-1/#comments

The screws, and cables, etc., are in a different place, but disassembly is still the same.

Use a can, or two, of compressed air for computers.
Also you may wish to use Q-tips, and a soft small brush.
(Makeup brush? )

DO NOT use a vacuum!!!!

A vacuum creates Static electricity.

Should I expect that Thermal-Cooling Assembly is always cold or warm? It's hot when I opened inspiron 1521 which is hanging sometimes so i'm wondering if thats the reason


thermal cooling is supposed to keep the laptop nice and cool but if there is a problem with the motherboard putting out to much heat then a cooling unit won't help cause that would mean either the cpu fan is not working or the motherboard is bad cause it can't regulate the voltage going thru it.

Over heating of my DELL INSPIRON 1420


The fan could be faulty (ie stopped spinning) or the heatsing vents are clogged with dust.
Remove the fan and check/clean the vents/fan. If the fan is faulty replace it.

Inspiron 5150 fan continously running


Dell Inspiron 5150, has overheating problems. The position of the fan is a problem.Also,don't press of the left upper corner of the laptop.Here's an excerpt from a wikipedia article: "The overheating problems on the Inspiron 5150 model was due to the position of the fan and fan-vent and the way in which it vents air through the CPU's heatsink.[citation needed] The fan draws air from underneath the unit and vents it through the rear after passing over the heatsink. However, the unit also sucks up dust from underneath it. Over time a buildup of dust constricts the airflow through the unit, reducing cooling. The airflow is perceptibly diminished. A simple test is to place a hand near the fan vent; when the fan is running at high speed there should be a good flow of warm air. Heat will also build up along the top of the unit near the LCD display and left toward the optical drive. Users may notice this while typing. Performance may also suffer, with jittery game movement and slow Windows performance. Some systems may experience jerky reactions where the unit goes into an almost slow-motion phase for short periods of time. Continued operation in this condition may lead to overheating and could result in permanent damage to the CPU, GPU, motherboard and other internal components. To remedy this the unit must be disassembled, the dust removed, and fan operation checked. This problem not uncommonly results in a CPU temperature-increase of between 15-20°C over an normally functioning unit. Further temperature increases may damage the casing of the unit."From Wikipedia article"Dell Inspiron" under problems Hope it helps -CG

Laptop running hot - Fan cycling on and off every 10-20 seconds


My guess is that CPU fan, it there is one, is not working properly and your computer is heating up. Is it turning off, too, occasionally after a period of time? Suggest a new CPU fan.
