Probably a blocked air way, using a laptop on a soft surface that restricts the air flow, faulty fan etc.

Overheating


Hello, welcome to Fixya!

Over heating maybe caused as a result of weak fan, ineffective heat sink, (dried thermal paste on the processor) or dust around the fan area in the system preventing free passage of air.
Also, where you keep your laptop when using it matters too. If you place your laptop on a foam, rug or too close to things preventing free passage of air may cause overheating.
You have to disassemble your laptop, and use a paint brush to remove every dust around the fan. Also, apply thermal paste on the processor to reduce the heat.
If you don't know how to disassemble your laptop, then you need someone to do that for you.

Take care.

Overheating


CPU/ Processor resources and due to the heavy processing the PC heats up. Excessive heat up beyond usual is alarming and PC shuts down by itself when the processor/ CPU temperature exceeds the safe temperature limit. There are mainly two reasons for heat up.
Heating issue generally occurs due to fan failure, which may damage the system, if not checked properly. Another most likely cause of overheating is the dust present inside the PC, which clogs the fan and heat sink.
1. Make sure the fan is running. (if not, it needs replacement)
2. Clean the fan and heat sink (thermal module). Take out the fan and heat sink. clean them with the help of tooth brush and put it back.
3. Also, make sure that the PC is placed in a well ventilated environment and the air flow the the PC is correct.
The procedure is very simple and I believe immediate action is required to prevent any damage to your machine and data.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

How to overcome overheating issue in my desktop?


Depends on what's overheating. If it's you processor you have to replace the thermal paste between the heat sink and the processor, if it's the ram you need to make sure it has proper ventilation, if it's the hard-drives the same etc. You need to be more specific.

Toshiba Satellite L500D is shutting down by itself OVERHEATING Clean the fan with compress Air ....> NO GO Need help Please or Any other Suggestion


Disassemble the laptop and remove the heatsink.
Remove all the dried up heatsink goo that's on the heatsink and processor.
Squeeze a small amount of QuickSilver heatsink compound onto the middle of the processor top.
Place the heatsink on the processor and move it in a couple small circles before locking the processor heatsink back in place.
Clean the air vents and cooling fins well while the unit is open.
This should fix any overheating issues you are having (assuming the fan is OK)
If the fan isn't running, replace it.

Acer aspire 5610z


need more info....does it replicate without the battery? If it does, then it may be that the processor is overheating and shutting down the computer. Try to run with just the power adaptor and see if it happens. If it doesn't, then its probably the battery....
