Your fan is either clogged or not working at all. Try spraying canned air into the exhaust port to clean it. If that doesn't help then replace the fan.

Latop will not boot up


1.Ensure your battery is holding power. Some laptops will auto shut-off if the battery won't hold a charge. In that case, replace your battery and retry. Check your charging lights or indicators to see if your laptop is getting power and charging.

2.Check your AC to DC converter (the little black adapter you plug in your AC outlet.) This converts AC power into DC power. Is it abnormally hot? If so, it is probably burned out. Replace it. Note- high heat is not a true indicator of malfunctioning. It can be dead and cold as well. No power
indicators on your laptop could be a sign of a dead or bad converter also. Converters WILL get hot (this is normal.) If it is REAL hot (to touch), then this is not good.

3.Check your power cord. Are there nicks or cuts? If so, unplugg it from the AC power and repair with electrical tape- better yet, replace it. Many computer salvage stores carry power adapter cords. They're cheap.

4. Check your laptop lid switch. If it is broken, you may have power but your screen may not come on.

This is usually a little button or mechanism located close to the lid hinge that turns on or off your

screen when your lid is open or closed respectively. Normally the operator does not push this button.

These are fragile and broken easily on some laptop models. Sometimes these can be fixed, more often

they will require replacements. If you aren't an expert repair person, get a technician to

repair/replace it for you. Opening up laptops is a very delicate operation and much more difficult to

repair than desktops. It may be worth it to spend the money for repair.

5. If you have tried these easy solutions and it still won't power on, then your problem lies

elswhere. You may have an internal power switch or voltage regulator problem.. Internal problems will

require professional help.

My gateway Ml3706 laptop shuts off after 5-10 min of using. they keyboard gets hot and the fan does not click in. i cleaned the computer of dust but im not sure if i need to pull the fan out and clean it...


Random reboots are usually an overheating problem. First step is to look into the vents and see if they are clear of dust, fuzz, animal hair etc.
If they are clear you will need to access the fan/heatsink. The heatsink can accumulate dust depending on the design. If the fan sounds "abnormally loud" it could have bad bearings from dust and dirt and may need to be replaced.
Most laptops come with some way to monitor the temp, usually in the bios. Occasionally they come with a utility. You can use that to check the heat levels.

No power no display


If your laptop won't power on or stay on for long then follow these quick and easy steps to troubleshoot the problem.
  1. Ensure your battery is holding a charge. Some laptops will automatically shut-off if the battery won't hold a charge. In that case, replace your battery with a new one and retry. Check your charging lights or indicators to see if your laptop is getting power and charging.
  2. Check your AC to DC converter (the little black adapter you plug in your AC outlet.) This converts AC power into DC power. Is it abnormally hot? If so, it is probably burned out. You will need to replace it. Note: High heat is not a true indicator of malfunctioning. It can be dead and cold as well. No power indicators on your laptop could be a sign of a dead or bad converter also. Converters WILL get hot (this is normal.) If it is REAL hot (burning hot when you touch it), then this is not good.
  3. Check your power cord. Are there any nicks, cuts or kinks? If so, unplug it from the AC power and repair with electrical tape or better yet, replace it. Many computer salvage stores carry power adapter cords. They're cheap and could save you from electrical shock.
  4. Check your laptop lid switch. If it is broken or not lit, you may have power but your screen may not come on. This is usually a little button located close to the lid hinge that turns on or off your screen when your lid is open or closed respectively. Normally the operator does not push this button. These are fragile and broken easily on some laptop models. Sometimes these can be repaired, more often they will require replacements. If you aren't an expert repair person, get a technician to repair or replace it for you.
  5. If you have tried these easy solutions and it still won't power on, then your problem lies elsewhere. You may have an internal power switch or voltage regulator problem. Internal problems will require professional help so go on down to your local PC store and have a qualified technican take a look.

When i play a game from my cdrom it gets hot after a few minutes


This is normal for lower end laptops or heavy CD ROm drive use.

Install the WHOLE game to your laptop

Or make a folder and copy the WHOLE cd to that (depends on anti piracy measures)
Then install from the folder.

Laptop rom drives are not built for sustained use such as games so always better to copy the disk even though it does use up large amouints of hard drive space

The only choice you have is one, just take the whole Laptop back to where you bought it from. I had exactly the same problem with my previous HP Pavillion dv6000, I only asked for a replacement and believe me what they gave me was really different and functioning well. I propose you do the same.

My bottom of laptop gets hotter


This seems to happen to all laptops (including mine which is nice and toasty below). There are a few things you can do to make it cooler (or less hot).
Shoot over to i.e. Futureshop, Walmart, Best Buy, anywhere really that carry's computer equipment. You can purchase a pad with fans or a riser that sits below your laptop to cool things down a bit. Also you can as a cheaper alternative, put something to raise/prop your laptop up (i.e. a thin like book). This will help air circulate through and cool down your laptop.
However, if your laptop is abnormally hot, I'd suggest checking your Heatsink. On laptops espically, dust can build up inside the components and thus you'll need to clean off the heatsink.
If your running Mac, luck is not on your side and this is something you'll have to take in to get looked at..
Hope this helps brtandan :)
