Dude calm down, if the fan needs to be running, let it run. If you absolutly need it off, download speed fan and turn it off so you can enjoy peace and qiuet. Or if its a part of the acctulal laptop and needs to be on in order to work, dont touch or mess with it. :)

First, I recommend cleaning all the dust out of the cooling vents. Use an old toothbrush to brush the dust away from the vent holes and blow air through the vents using one of those compressed air cans made for cleaning keyboards. One time I worked on a Sony laptop that I had to take apart to get all the dust cleaned out of the air vent.

The second thing I recommend is to download a piece of free software called FanSpeed. Here's a link http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Info/SpeedFan.shtml
I'll let you read the description for yourself, but in short it allows you to monitor the temperature inside your computer and to adjust how the fans react to this temperature.

I sent in my computer a compaq CQ60-615DX two months ago to be fixed. It came back working but is now overheating in the front of the computer. The fan is running and the back is not overheated just the...


You should call up Compaq and tell them that when you recieved your computer, it was overheating. They will most likely ask you to send it back. Sounds like they may have covered up the fan with a ribbon cable or something.

Why is my computer overheating only after 10 minutes


There are several possible causes - these are the 3 most common:

1. The fan is broken - can you hear it running?
2. You are running too much background software

Open "Task Manager" and select the "Performance" tab. If the CPU usage is constantly at a high level (80-100%) you may have too many background applications running. Next click on the "Performance" tab and look at the CPU column. See which processes are using lots of CPU power.

3. You have a virus/malware. Reboot in safe mode and run a virus scanner.

MY cOMPAQ pRESARIO CQ60 fell and cant complete boot


Most likely in this case, the damage is to the hard drive or its connection to the motherboard. The CQ series though has a three point screw attachment for the hard drive so Im more inclined to think that the shock of the landing has damaged the read/write head on the hard drive. If you happen to have another hard drive for a laptop, try installing a new drive and run the installation disc and see if it will complete and boot completely....if it will then the problem was the old drive.

MY HUSBAND AND I EACH HAVE THE SAME MODEL LAPTOP, MINE GETS HOT WHILE IN USE AND HIS DOESNT, WHY? and my fan constantly runs. is it my battery or do i need to do something


do you have it set for high performance in the control panel, go to start, control panel, then to "performance information and tools" you can adjust power settings, performance setting. If that doesn't work you might try looking into the set-up part of the CMOS. iIf you need help with it let me know, If your not comfortable with working with CMOS then get assistance before to go forward with that. Hope this helps. Please feel out the survey for thats what keeps us here for you.
