Every time I turn my computer on after about 30 seconds it sounds like a vacuum cleaner running. This is so embarrassing. I've had other laptops and my husband's laptop doesn't make all this noise. I can't watch a DVD on it because it is so loud. It also gets extremely hot no matter where I lay it. Any ideas on how to fix? Thanks
You should use the BIOS option for "Fan Auto Learning" and "Battery Power Management", i believe those are the correct names, regardless one option allows the fan to set the RPMs it needs based on temperature. This option works rather well.

That sounds as if the cooling fan is working very hard. This normally means that the cooling ducts are full of dust and other rubbish. You may be able suck most out with a vacuum cleaner or blast with an air duster. Failing that, it's taking it apart (you will need a manual) to clean the heat sink area around the cpu.
A common problem with all laptop is dust. Sounds like you have 5 years worth of dust stuck in there. You should get a can of compressed air and blow though every vent you can! You want to loosen the dust that's in there and possibly try to blow it out and/or get it closest to the vents.
After that you should take a vaacum cleaner and **** out all the dust you can!
Dust inhibits air flow, alot! Its the number 1 killer of old computers.
Check the CPU and Fan/Heatsink assembly. I have a pretty good feeling that the CPU is heating up too much and is not being cooled properly. There may be lint or dust clogged in the fan. You can get access to this pretty easy by removing a few screws on the bottom panel that houses the CPU/fan.
dude heres the deal the blue screen is from a lack of ram simple as that. just add more ram and you shouldn't have that problem anymore. then when the computer starts up reset the page file to double the amount of your ram. that should get rid of the blue screen and you should have a running unit. if this doesn't work then you are best off reinstalling the OS.
Select 3200 and then find the part number on the bottom of you laptop. Download and run the audio file and you should be good to go (it will probably tell you to reboot the computer) Let me know how this goes, there could be a few more things to try.
Im sure the virus would have stopped a boot up unless is was a bios virus which is rare.
It's sounds to me as if it's a processor problem, it seems to work at first which suggests the motherboard is working, but then as soon as the pc starts to work hard which is on start up its either getting too hot then shutting down or simply damaged.
I assume you cannot get into the bios as it shuts off too quick, but you may still be able to clear the bios by locating the cmos battery and flipping out, as the bios may not be seeing your hard drive and crashing,this will make your laptop pause in the bios first, so trying to get in the bios may be a step forward so as to get the laptop to see your new drive.
Flashing green battery means it is in suspend mode. Pushing the power button should bring it out of suspension, however, one of the reasons I deactivate both suspend and hibernate mode is because the seldom work right.
I would disconnect your A/C power cord and remove your battery from the laptop. After about 30 seconds plug them back in and your commuter should start again.
Let us know how things go.
