The first thing I would do is open the case and remove the fan and heat sink for the processor. You will probably find a little "radiator" looking device clogged with dust bunnies. Clean it out good with canned air and reinstall it. Be sure to clean the processor and heat sink then reapply heat sink compound. Clean all your fans and, with the case open, power up and look at all your fans. Are they all spinning at full power. If not, replace them. Reassemble the case. You should be good.

Overheating on Compaq Presario Notebook Model C501NR


OverheatingWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith 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 surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

I have a Compaq Presario SR5505f. It seems to have an overheat issue. When the cores start running higher the fan kicks in faster and if it hold there it will shut down. I have to restart the computer...


Here are several solutions that may help with your problem. First of all the vents for this or any laptop can't be covered this will cause any laptop to overheat. Don't cover the vents also make sure your laptop is on a hard smooth surface putting your laptop on blankets, quilts or a soft surface like a sofa or bed may not allow it to breathe and cause overheating.

Second, Check your power management settings. They control CPU speed which will help with
overheating. If the computer has had the OS reinstalled make sure that the dirvers for this are
properly installed and power management is working correctly.

If using the laptop for heavy duty games and functions like video rendering for long periods of time
it may just overheat from being overworked. A laptop cooler may help. For a simple solution I've
just put a couple of pencils under my laptop to elevate it a little off the table in the back. This
simple solution helped my laptop run much cooler under stress.

I have a compaq presario x6000. every time i place the laptop on my bed and turn it on it cuts off within 5 minutes. but when I place it on a desk and turn it on it does not cut off. do not understand why...


The reason is because when the laptop is placed on the bed the cooling vents are blocked and the CPU overheats and shuts down. When the laptop os placed on a flat surface there is sufficient clearance between the bottom of the laptop and the flat surface of the desk to provide sufficient air circulation.
If you wish to use the laptop in bed then place the laptop on a flat surface and not let the bed clothes cover the laptop's cooling vents.

Overheat


Yes you could try a laptop "Cooler Pad" that may help, either that or go into the BIOS and set the temperature "Cut Off" point higher by say 10 - 20 degrees. Ensure the laptop has an air flow all around it at all times. Clean out your exhaust port, of dust etc.

Turn on laptop. within minutes fan is running full bore and bottom is very hot


is this a new laptop? if not it may be that the fan needs a clean and new thermal compound needs to put on the cpu. if it within warranty i would contact compaq. You can do it yourself if you know what your doing but if you don@t then please don't try it as involves know how and if you mess it up you could have a dead laptop @ the end.

My acer 5720 keeps overheating when playing games and shutting down any tips to overcome this .


  1. Buy a laptop cooler
  2. put your laptop on a leveled surface such as a table
  3. do not put your laptop on your bed while its on, that causes the laptops vents to block and no air can be sucked in eventually the laptop gets heated and automatically turns off
  4. plz dont forget to vote if i solved your problem :)

Laptop Compaq Presario F 700 overheats easily and shuts down


When the CPU overheats it shuts down (ie thermal overload) and won't startup until it has cooled down. This problem is caused by faulty fans (with bearing problems and may not spinning at normal speed) or the fan and heatsink assembly is clogged with dust.
Check the vents and fan and vacuum and remove the dust.

If the laptop is not placed on a flat surface there may not be enought air entering the vent on the bottom of the laptop.
To improve ventillation, you can stick rubber pads on the bottom of the laptop to increase the height of the laptop off the table. Better still purchase a laptop fan assisted base and place the laptop on this base, this provides further fan assisted ventillation.

Overheat?


your cooling fan may not be working propperly, check to see if the processor or rams are damaged

Try reformatting it and if it still stalls that your problem is your processor if it cant complete format propperly its your rams or hardrive..

BUT check your cooling fan, that system should not overheat unless the fan is not working propperly (spin fast enough or too small)
