Fan makes a lot of noise, then computer suddenly shuts down

I have had the computer formatted and the fan replaced, but it continues to have this issue. Whether it is plugged in or not, the fan begins to make a lot of noise after about 10 minutes of use and then the computer shuts off. When restarted after this shutdown, it only lasts for about 5 minutes. Any suggestions?

Your computer seems to be overheating. Probably the heat sink or air path to the CPU is dirty, or you have a hardware device making interference with the air path way. You may also have bad BIOS configuration try downloading and running core temp 1.0 google it. The program will give you recommended fan speeds and will tell you the temperature of the system. If non of this works, your computer is a SIMPLY lemon.

Seems to be overheating. When you say the fan makes a lot of noise, do you mean an unusual noise or just that it is on high?

Computer won't boot


OverheatingWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

My Toshiba laptop P205D-S7802 is starting to make a sound like the fan motor is starting to go out. Can this motor be replaced?


Yes, it sounds like your CPU Fan is about to blow. Once it goes completely out and not turn on, your laptop will run hot and shut down. The fan is replaceable and they don't cost a lot. However your laptop will have to be completely disassembled to get to it and therein lies the cost. Get a quote from your local repair shop, then try these guys at: http://www.generalsystemsconsulting.com
They will repair it and ship it back via Fedex or UPS and their price will beat most quotes including the shipping.

Hi,

First, if the CPU fan is not spinning properly, you should NOT run the system. The fan needs to be replaced.

If the fan is running normally, you may boot by pressing F1.

Before replacing with a new fan, you can first try re-seating the plug for the fan in your computer. The fan's plug may have been bumped or loosed. Re-seat the plug located at J1F1 as shown in the picture below and be sure that it is properly connected.

Hope this helps.

Fan making noises overheating?


This is a very common problem with Acer Aspire5315 Notebook and in some cases the Laptop automatically just shuts down and things get very annoying in hot summers

If you have not opened a Laptop before then I will strongly recommend you to take this Laptop to a technician and get it serviced in front of yourself. The technician should open the body of the Laptop take out and blow air into the fan which should remove a lot of dust choking the fan making this noise. The other parts should also be cleaned in the laptop service process such as the fan duct leading to the CPU. When service is done on this PC it will remove 80% of the problem.
If you still face the sudden shut down problem. It will be due to the flakiness of the fan and you need to download a software usually developed by third parties and sometimes free to download just use the right keywords on you search engine and easy to install and which controls the timing of the CPU fan to start and stop.

Regards,
Tauqeer

Sounds like you have a hardware fan & vent, the CPU shuts down when it gets too hot.
Check the fan, it should spin freely, clean the dust off the fan and heatsink assembly. Replace the fan if necessary.
When you use the laptop, make sure none of the vents are covered.

The fans continue to run after these TVs are turned off, so its likely that its one of the fans. The most likely fan is the exhaust fan that is in front of the lamp assy.
