Well then, actually did you know what you were doing going in the computer? You should not wipe with any materials! Use the air cans for cleaning dust you can buy at wal-mart or any other retail for real cheap, but never spray anything on it.

I have a toshiba satellite L505-S6946 that is a year old and now I have a blue screen. what does that mean and how can I get it repaired


blue screens are also known as bsod (blue screen of death) which means there is a critical problem and there can be various reasons for this.
judging by the rebooting cycle, i would think the system is overheating. does it feel very hot when its been on for a while?
if so the case will need to be opened and the heatsink removed from the processor. all the vents and fan should be cleaned of dust and thermal paste applied to the processor where the heatsink sits, before putting it back together.

DIY: Clean up your notebook


Hello :

• In this project, I'll show you how to get inside and clean the guts of your laptop, and how to keep it looking spiffy on the outside, too.
Step 1: Keep your cool
Computer components--processors, graphics cards, and the like--get hot when they run. To mitigate this, laptop makers put in elaborate heat sinks that absorb the heat generated by the processor. In addition, all but the tiniest models have at least a single fan; some bigger systems have two or even three. When the temperature rises above a certain level, the fans automatically come on to keep the laptop out of the red zone. Unfortunately, like all fans, the ones in your laptop will eventually end up covered in dust and dirt, and that could spell trouble.
An occasional cleaning will keep your laptop fans spinning effectively for years. But before you can clean them, you'll have to find them. Fortunately, in most cases, they're near the vents that are located around the edges of your case; these slats let cool air in and hot air out. Don't worry if they're covered in dust and lint, we'll get to that. Now you'll need to open up the laptop case.
Look for a few sets of screws, underneath the laptop near the vents. Remove the panel and look for the fans--they're circular and plastic, usually about the size of a quarter, with a small propeller inside. Again, it may be covered with dust and lint.
Step 2: Dust bunny patrol
Now that you're inside the laptop, use a flashlight to look around for built-up dust and dirt. Using the eraser-end of a pencil or tweezers, pick off any nasty deposits you come across.
Start at the fan, then work your way to the ducts and vents. Look under the ribbon cables, around the hard drive, and near the tiny circuit boards. Grime can hide in the oddest places, like the processor's copper-colored heat sink, so make sure you explore all the laptop's nooks and crannies.
Step 3: Air it all out
You've done the detail work, and now it's time to go big. Put on a dust mask, if you have one. Grab the can of compressed air and spray down the inside of your laptop. Go nuts. Blow out all the dust you can find. It won't be pretty, and you might want to have a vacuum cleaner running nearby to grab all the junk it as it comes out. Don't be surprised if a lot comes out of that little laptop.
Step 4: Shake, rattle, and roll
Now that you've made your first pass at cleaning out the inside, give your laptop a little shake to dislodge any particularly resilient dust and grime. Keep cleaning and shaking until nothing more comes out.
Step 5: Key to the crumb highway
Now that the inside of your laptop is as clean as a whistle, it's time to tidy up that nasty keyboard. Don't be embarrassed by what you find: Most keyboards have enough crumbs to feed a flock of pigeons for weeks. Use the can of compressed air to blow it clean, but be careful not to break any keys off.
Step 6: Tighten up
While you've still got the laptop open, give each of the major components a quick look to see if any are loose. A loose motherboard or hard drive can cause damage in the long run, so make sure all of the screws are tight and all of the cables are well connected. When tightening the screws, be careful not to overdo it--gently tighten until you feel some resistance. When you're done, reconnect the access panels on the underside of your laptop.
Step 7: Clean your screen
All laptop screens are susceptible to nicks and scratches, and the latest glossy, high-contrast displays show off fingerprints that . We like to give our screens a quick rubdown about once a week. You can use any brand of window cleaner so long as it doesn't contain ammonia or any harsh detergents. We're partial to Sprayway, because it gets all foamy and doesn't leave annoying streaks; unfortunately, Sprayway can be hard to find in some places, and you may have to make a special trip to a glass or mirror store to find it.
When wiping down the screen, stay away from tissue that leave lint behind or rough fabrics that may scratch the display. We recommend Kimwipes lint-free cleaning cloths, a soft cotton chamois or a microfiber cloth

I have a HP Pavilion dv9810us laptop. It is about 3.5 yrs old. Since last 1 yr I am noticing that the laptop is becoming extremely heated when I open any heavy resource hungry application. Once it gets too...


Hi.

If the laptop is getting very hot and shutting down then you no doubt need to clean the CPU fan and the air vents of any build up of dust that may have collected over the 3 years you've had it.

Get a can of compressed air and give short blasts through the air vents and the CPU fan grill. You should see dust shoot out of the vents when you depress the button of the can.

The CPU fan is located underneath that laptop and the air vents can be located at the sides or the back of the laptop.

If it still gets hot and shuts down after doing this then I suggest that you take the laptop to a reutable PC repair store and have them clean the inside of the laptop for you and have it serviced at the same time.


Hope this helps!!!



Regards.

My asus M50VC gets reaaly hot and shut itself down. What could be the problem?


Check to see if the fan is working by picking up the laptop and looking at the fan. Also if this laptop is being used on cloth ie lap or bed it can have cooling ducts clogged also have a hard drive test done

Try cleaning out the CPU cooler. Sometimes they get too much dust in them and they cant cool the computer correctly. Blow out the vents on the side or back and you will probably see the dust come out the intake for the fan. Blow out the fan and then the vents again. Do this till you dont see dust come out. Canned air works but I use an air compressor and filter on the line. The i7 runs hot when you game. You may also need to try to put a cooler under it. Try that and see what happens.
Hope this helps... Dale

My laptop heats up and shuts down after a while . just started doing this, then turns on okay after an hour or so.


Either the cpu blower is not working or the the air ventilation openings are closed. Use a brush to clean up all the openings for air flow all over the laptop. If possible use clean air under pressure towards the air openingsin co-operation with the brush cleaning. In case of using air under pressure, leave the laptop at least one hour after the cleaning to relax.
Start the laptop and check the results. In case of the problem still exists, the problem is at the cpu blower. In order to get at this blower you must open the laptop's case. Since this is not so easy I suggest to get the laptop at a technician asking for cleaning and checking the cpu ventilation.
In case you are capable of opening the case or if you come up with a problem, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs".

My acer aspire 3000, keeps turning off when i have it pluged into the wall. why is it doing that and can anyone help me...


Computer shutting off after a few seconds to a few minutes

This sounds like an auto shut-off signal given by the processor because of a possible over-heating issue. This usually happens when the laptop has been run for an extended time without having the dust, dirt and debris cleaned from its cooling vents and grills. After time, the thermal paste on the processor bakes under the extreme heat and starts to flake off and lose its efficiency at cooling the processor.
Get a few cans of compressed air that you would buy at an office supply store and using short bursts, blow out the dust and dirt from all the ventilation grills and vents first, make sure the laptop is powered down and battery removed. Then, open all the compartments and clean them out as well including the cd/dvd tray. There is a small black hole on the dvd bezel, just stick an open paperclip in it and it will pop the tray open. Blow a good blast in there to clean the dvd player.
There is the possibility that the thermal paste will have to be replaced, that means you need to gain access to the heatsink and remove from the processor, clean all the old thermal paste from it and apply a small thin layer of new paste to the top of the processor and replace the heatsink, securing it evenly with the attached screws.

Shutting off


Make sure you can hear your fan on boot up as it should start immediately, if not cooling problem down to fan, if it does check that the vents on side and underneath are'nt blocked with dust, hoover with attachment gently. if still persists, as long as you have'nt tried to speed up processor in settings, then your processor is overheating causing shutdown, and a pc repair shop is only answer, although probably cheaper purchasing a more new upto date laptop.
