Overheating Dell D600?

My laptop runs ok for about 30 mins, however it then stutters, and will not recover untill I shut the thing down.

When I feel the bottom it is really hot (to the point where the metal parts on the laptop can burn your hand). Is this is what’s causing it to stutter?

It generally only happens when i'm doing something that requires a bit of CPU usage, it seems to be fine if I just leave it.

Thanks in advance :)

Get a can of compressed air for cleaning computers. Turn the laptop over and locate the vents to the fan inside. Blow the compressed gas through the machine to clean out excess dirt and lint. Then turn on the laptop and see if you can observe the fan running. If you can see the fan running you might notice how fast it is running. If it is running slow or not at all then you need to get that replaced.

It is overheating. This is the #1 killer for cpu's. First check all your vents to make sure they are dust free and blowing air out. If they are then you'll want to either upgrade your cpu fan or you could buy one of those laptap cooling pads to keep the laptop on while in use. Hope this helps.

When it starts cutting out and you turn off the PTO, how long do you have to wait until it can be turned on again? It sounds as if your PTO is overheating and loading down the engine. Run the mower for about 10 minutes, shut it off, and carefully feel the PTO housing. Resume cutting and repeat after it starts cutting out.

Replacing it is not as simple as changing the spark plug, but does not require an advanced degree.

Dell Dimension with E187242 stops running after variable times from 5 mins to 30 mins Running Win 7


Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

Try flexing the whole bottom assembly. that is with the laptop open put your knee in the middle and grab the unit with one hand on the corner closest to you and the other near the screen and put enough pressure to "flex " the mobo right after you push the start button if it doesn't start try it the other way... this has been working for my grandsons d600 for 6 months. i tried a new switch board because the guy that sold me the mobo said the plug for that is known to crack and that didn't fix it. good luck ps you will know it has worked when the 3 lock lights go out and the power light stays on.

My dell computer keeps shutting down every 5 min or so. I cleaned th fan and still the problem happens. I bought this almost 4 and a half years ago.


You may have cleaned the fan but have you cleaned the metal cooler (heat sink) under the fan? Its better to remove the fan from the heat sink and hoover it out, then refit the clean fan. Also hoover out the power supply vents too. Also make sure any case vents are clear too. If you think overheating is the problem then run the pc with the case open and if it runs ok then overheating is the problem.

My dell latitude D610 laptop gets heated up after a few minutes I the start the laptop and eventually shuts down.


  • There is a possibility that the fan of your laptop is not working. Make sure when you power on the laptop the fan is running. And if the fan is not working replace it so that your laptop will not heat up and it will not shut down.
Feel free to reply this solution if you have further questions. Thank you.

My Dell 610D runs for about 15 minutes getting progressively hotter(speed fan) and then just stops working?


It sounds like the DELL is overheating and shutting down and if it cannot start up again straight away until it has cooled down then it is definitely a thermal overload (overheating) problem.
If the fan is OK then the fault is most likely dust clogging the fan and heatsink assembly.
The fix - loosen the dust from the vents, fan and heatsink assembly and vacuum/remove the dust off these components.
Use the laptop on a flat hard surface and/or place small pads to increase the height and ventillation to the laptop.
If the problem persists then there are products such as fan assisted cooling pads that you place the laptop on to provide addition cooling to the laptop,
If you continue to ignore this problem then eventually the CPU chip will fail.

Check that the cpu fan is working. In easynote usually you uncrew a panel at the back of the laptop. If it is not that may be a common system problem, in that case reinstall your system.
