Re: averatec lap top av3500t

Hi As you have stated that you have no power this means that the CPU is overheating and is unable to complete the function of opening the operating system if you can feel the large fan that circulates air throughout the laptop you can generally say that the power is reaching the mother board but the CPU is getting to hot to function therefore i would sagest that you see about getting a heat seek fan for your laptop if you take it to a reputable computer store they may replace it for you and double check it for you Hope this solves your problem Paddy

i do not work with asus but i have dealt with them numerous times and they have the best customer support i have ever dealt with. and they speak english. i would send the laptop back and have them look at it again. laptops do get very hot, they generate a lot of heat. i would suggest a laptop tray so you dont have to put it on your lap. whenever a laptop is not properly ventilated it can cause a lot of problems. including on getting extremely hot. i dont suggest you put any laptop on your bare skin.

Hi i have a hp pavilion lap top ze4315. i am

First, get a small Phillips head screwdriver, a credit card, and something like an egg carton to store all the screws you'll pull out. You'll also need something to clean the dust off the heatsink and fans--a can of compressed air is by far the best choice for this.

Note: READ ALL THE DIRECTIONS BEFORE YOU START. This is not an easy thing to do, especially your first time. Be careful. This is not a quick job either; I'd budget at least two hours of solid work, and it may take the whole afternoon.

Step 1: Shut the machine down, unplug it, and remove the battery. It might also be wise to back up your important data.

Step 2: Open up the cover on the bottom of the laptop where the WiFi card sits. Carefully unplug the antenna cables from this card.

Step 3: On the back of the laptop there should be several screws near the display hinge. Unscrew these and remove them. Then open the display all the way until it is flat. Use the credit card to help you remove the trim above the keyboard where the power button is located. This trim is held in by clips and will make several unnerving popping sounds when you pull it off. Just be careful and everything should work out fine.

Step 4: Unscrew the keyboard and carefully lift it up. Follow the ribbon cable on the bottom of the keyboard to where it connects to the motherboard. Unplug it (carefully!) and set the keyboard aside. Also unscrew the circuit board where the power button is located and remove that; it is also connected via a cable that needs to be unplugged. Also unscrew and unplug the speakers.

Step 5: Close the screen and turn the computer over. Unscrew all the screws on the bottom of the machine. There should be about 10-15, I think. Make sure to remove the screws stuck under the little rubber plugs along the front of the computer. A couple of these hold the hard drive in place; remove the hard drive. Under the hard drive there are a few screws in the case; unscrew those as well. Look around on the sides of the laptop; there may be a few screws on the sides as well. They need to come out too.

Step 6: Turn the machine back over and open the screen.Unplug the display cable and unscrew the four screws that hold the hinge on the display to the computer. Set the display aside. You may have to unscrew the little circuit boards near the hinges; those are the WiFi antennas.

Step 7: Remove all the screws in the metal plate underneath the keyboard. Also unplug any relevant ribbon cables that are connected to the motherboard and the top case (the palm rest part) of the laptop. The most notable of these is the trackpad connector, if you can get to it. You should also pull the wifi antenna connectors up through the machine now.

Step 8: Carefully lift the top case up, using the credit card to help you unsnap any clips holding it in place. Go slowly and don't force it because you may have missed a screw, either on the bottom or the top of the laptop. Also watch out for any connectors you missed. Remove the top case and set it aside.

Step 9: Unscrew the heatsink carefully. This is probably attached to the fan, so be careful. Also unplug the fan-but be VERY careful when you do this. Once I accidentally pulled the entire connector off and had to resolder it onto the motherboard. Take my word for it, that is not fun. Unscrew the fan, and you should be able to lift the heatsink and fan out to clean them.

Step 10: Follow these directions in reverse to put the machine back together. Go slowly and make sure you don't forget any screws or connectors. If you do, go back and find out where they go.

Good luck!

System fan failed

Whether this is a laptop or desktop you didn't say but it only matters in how hard the repair is. If desktop you can replace the CPU fan. They are usually clipped or screwed ontop of the CPU. Usually the heat sink will come off with it. You'll need to buy an exact replacement and a little tube of heat sick compound. Once you have a new one reverse your steps except first put some heat sink compound on top of the CPU. If this is a laptop then take it to a reputable repair person. Replacing laptop fans requires stripping down the machine.

My lap top is extra ordinary heated after some time.what is problem?

You didn't mention if you had a laptop or a desktop. But on a laptop there is a small fan on the power supply that cools the CPU and all inside. The laptop must always be used on a flat surface like a table to ensure the air is circulating properly. Putting it on your lap or on your bed will cause it to heat more than usual. Yes they do get hot, the tempature is monitored by your BIOS and will automatically shut down if it gets too hot, this is to save the CPU from being damaged. As long as things are working properly then you are ok.

Toshiba Satelite M10 cooling system not working

If you DO NOT hear the fan running, have it looked at by a professional. Your fan may have died. If you can hear the fan running, blow out the fan exhaust port in the opposite direction of normal air flow. Especially on lap tops, the heat sink cooling fins become completely clogged with dust. When this happens the processor overheats causing it to run slow and eventually shuts itself down to keep from going super nova. You should blow it out at least once or twice a year. Also, if you use your laptop on the couch or in bed, place it on a hard surface like a cutting board or something similar that will allow air to flow underneath the computer. This will also help prevent dust from the cushions or blankets and such from clogging the cooling fins on the heat sink faster than usual. Remember blow it out in the opposite direction of normal air flow. You want to blow the dust out the same passage it came in through.
