    Same thing if you remove the battery? If not the battery may be bad and drawing too much current and causing it to overheat.

If this is not caused by overheating try defraging your hard drive and doing a disk cleanup.

computer slowdowns can also be caused by a virus infection try also scanning for virus in your computer.

Indesit KDP60C Cooker Thermal cut in? A few days ago whilst we were cooking, there were electrical sparks visible from behind one of the controls in the top panel, and then the cooker circuit tripped out....

Not familiar with this one, but I have repaired many things like this. One of the components like a switch or relay has shorted out inside. A contact that turns the fan on has burnt shut. Sounds like you have found some info on this unit. See if there is any kind of diagram that shows what path the poser to the fan takes, and what component it passes through. That will be your culprit. The thermal switch should only activate if it gets too hot or overloaded, then it will shut the fan off.

Cooling fan relays will not energize

A few questions for you. If this is equipped with a/c if you turn the a/c on do the coolant fans operate? How many terminals are on the relays you're referring to? When you say the car is started and the voltage drops to near nothing is this after a cold start or is this after the vehicle has been running awhile so it would be at operating tempatue requiring or being at the correct temp. for the fan or fans to warrant them to be working at that time?

Is my cmo s battery goin bad?because every time i start my computer the time is always reset, and also detect error cpu fan.

Yes. If the time is off, the CR2032 battery is probably bad. The battery is located near the PCI port. CPU fan error, is a different issue though. The fan may need replacement. Verify the fan is running and not full of dirt.

The electric cooling fans on my 2004 pontiac bonneville do not turn on. What do I do?

I would check your relays first. Usually your problem is the relay. You may have a Service Engine Soon light on also. This can indicate that your coolant temperature sensor isn't working therefore the sensor isn't telling the computer to turn the fans on. Another quick easy test is to start the car and while it's idling either turn on the a/c full blast or the heater defroster. This should cause the fans to kick on for a length of time. (The length of time can very) If they do come on it would lead me to believe that you have a coolant temp sender problem. If they still don't come on after a few mins, I would definitely look into the relay.

Open the notebook and get the system clean by blowing it with an Air blower mainly near Processor area and cooling fan.

It will solve your problem.

My cooling fan on my mother board start making noise now as soon as you power up the pc it shuts down could it over heat that quickly or did it ruin mother board?

It is possible to burn out a processor in a matter of seconds without cooling. Please do not attempt to restart the unit, until you replace the colling fan on the processor. If it's not the processor fan/heatsink, you may have lucked out, but don't restart it till you replace the fans.The fan that sits on your cpu is the main concern, if it's one of the others the board should shut down automatically in order to stop this scenario from occuring.

E Machine T2682 powers up but, doesn't work

This sounds like an overheating problem, that is why the fan comes on right away. When you let it rest, it cools off, and works normally for a while.

Most modern PC's are designed to slow down their operating
frequency when they over-heat, and if that is not enough they
will go into suspend, hibernation or (totally off) modes to protect themselves from permanent damage.

Bigger power supply, more and better cooling fans, improved space and airflow around the cabinet, cool the room with aircond.

also better heat-sinks on the CPU and/or the chip-sets.

all relatively inexpensive.
