Question about Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 Laptop Computer - 593127U - Dark Chocolate

2 Answers

Overheating I'm not sure if the last digits of the product number are 24U, 26U or 27U. Hope that's not a problem. The laptop overheats rapidly, especially when gaming. The heat is on the left hand side. I keep it resting on ice packs which helps a bit, but is not possible when gaming. I've updated the BIOS and Energy Management Drivers. I keep it dust free using the Energy Management Dust Removal. It is less than a year old, but treats my wooden desk as kindling and will possibly turn my home into a funeral pyre if the problem is unchecked. Please help! Thank you.

I would remove the bottom cover and clean the fan and radiator as a build up of fluff will reduce the cooling.

Just try one thing...
Blow air in the exits of you laptop fans. you can use blower or just try it with you mouth.
Sometimes Laptop fans will not be able to cool down your Processor due dust.

SOURCE: can it be possible to track stolen laptop location

There is no way on earth to track your laptop unless you had installed some software that would tell were is it once it's on-line such as "ADEONA" which by the way it's open source. I'm sorry to say but next time you buy one you could protect yourself by installing this kind of solutions. Remember that the worst enemy for a computer is it's user.

SOURCE: R61i overheats and goes in sleep mode

Many laptops accumulate dust inside the fan/heat exchanger assembly over several months or years, and must be removed in order for the laptop to properly cool itself. Depending on how much you use the laptop, it can happen in as little as a matter of months. You may want to ask a laptop repair place how much just to clean out the dust, and see if that works. Sometimes a cooling pad can help, especially if the laptop isn't already on a hard, flat surface.I actually keep my laptop on a small wooden board the same length & width as the laptop with a cooling pad on top of that, and the laptop on top of that, because I often want to set my laptop on my bed, which can smother the air circulation, and cause it to overheat quickly otherwise. Even when on a hard, flat surface, like a table or desk, if I am playing a game, I put it on the cooling pad because games cause the laptop components to generate a lot of heat, and this brand is somewhat notorious for overheating (especially when it has a discreet graphics card).

I think it might be that your PC is too clogged up by various programmes and background runs. I would format and install. (How long have you been using it in years, months? How many different programs on it? How much RAM?)

My 2001 saturn cp is overheating i put a new water pump therastat and radiator and it is still overheating


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action please observe the coolant hoses. If there's coolant leakage the car will surely overheat. Do check the rotation of the radiator fan blower too, if it blows weak the car will surely overheat too. Last thing will be a crack on the cylinder head, you will need to rebuild it if that's the case.

Let's just hope that the first 2 are only the issue to cut the cost. Engine rebuild will surely cost you.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

My hp pavilion dv6000 won't charge even with it plugged in. It also shuts down randomly. If someone could help me to figure out whats wrong with it that would be great!


http://bpr.hpordercenter.com/hbpr/ Check For Battery Recall Here
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/weInput?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=ca&product=3224052&lang=en Check For Warranty Here.
In general terms, if the battery does not charge, it may be required to be replaced. A typical battery will last longer if a series of charge and fully discharge cycles occur. It is not good for the battery to constantly run on AC power.
You can check the above URL's to see about your warranty status and for the Battery if under recall, you will need the product number and the serial number from the laptop.
As far as the laptop shutting down, this may be an overheating problem. The fan may be clogged with dust and debris imparing the flow of air into the laptop, make sure the laptop has good ventilation when operating.
I hope this helps, Pre...

1991 B2600 190,000 miles radiator flushed,


If it rapidly overheats, that's generally a sign of a blown head gasket. Some shops have what is called a "sniffer" that they can check to see if you are getting exhaust fumes into the cooling system. You may want to check into that before you tear the engine down. Are you sure you have the thermostat in the right way? That will also cause rapid overheat, if it's backwards, the spring goes toward or into the engine.

Well i can tell you that my 360 is not overheating because it has been off for 24 hours and right when i try to turn it on i get the 2 red lights


It is overheating, or atleast it thinks it is. The 3 things that overheat in a 360 that trigger those lights are the CPU, GPU, and RAM.
When you turn on the console, and the 2 lights start blinking do this...
Hold down the sync button and press the eject button, it should blink a certain number of lights rapidly. Continue to hold the sync button and each press of the eject button moves to the next number of a code. After 4 presses total, you should have a 4 digit code and be back on the regular speed blinking of the 2 lights.
And here is what they mean (4 lights = 0)
0011- CPU is overheating 0012- GPU is overheating 0013- RAM is overheating or faulty (this can be the tricky one)
For the CPU and GPU, a simple X clamp fix will cure them. Sometime simply putting pressure on the RAM corrects it's issue... sometimes. But sometimes it can be a bad solder under the RAM or just faulty RAM, in which case I would have an expert repair it.

1. short lamp live 2. overheating


First, make sure you've cleaned any dust filters on the unit!! That in itself will usually stop overheating (think of someone closing off your nose and mouth) that's what happens when the dust filter gets clogged--the unit strangles for cool air and rapidly overheats--this not only shortens lamp life dramatically, but also shortens the life of ALL components in the unit, especially delicate LCD panels or the display chip in a DLP projector!
