You can unscrew you laptop and clean the fan and the heatsink without removing the fan unless you have a cooling paste, you can find many videos on youtube that discribe how to do it or at least how to unscrew your device

Processors and graphics cards mainly, are using coolant or thermal paste to overcome heat during system process. and these things are to be consider for maintenance once i a while. if you haven't change the coolant for a 1yr, i advice you to take it to the shop for proper replacements. for some reasons, it will eventually affect the northbridge which will give a lot of problems on board.

thanks

thanks

Toshiba satellite p505d s8935 overheats when playing 3d games after about an hour or so. Not every time but often enough to be frustrating. I then have to let it cool off for about 15 minutes and then...


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.

My ibm thick pad laptop suddenlly off every time i on it what might be the problem


When the CPUoverheats it goes into thermal shutdown and will not boot up again until theCPU has cooled down.
The heat sink may be clogged with dust, which causes the CPU to overheat byreducing air circulation through the heat sink.If you are notusing your laptop on a flat surface, it may be obstructing the cooling vents onthe bottom of the laptop. Your laptop fanmay be faulty and not spinning freely, in this case replace the fan.
Check the fan and heat sink assembly and remove the dust, loosen the dust anduse a can of compressed air to clear away the dust.A laptop fan assistedcooling pad may solve your problem

My dell vostro 3500 suddenly shutdown always im in game as SC2 is related to cpu or gpu or anything else? tnx


It sounds like your system is over heating. If the system is shutting down it will be over heating on the CPU and shutting off to prevent fatal damage to the CPU. If it were the GPU over heating it would simply video lock.
Vostro is a business class machine so it is not designed to handle gaming and could be exactly why it is having this issue. The system is being over worked performing a task it is not technically capable of doing.
You can purchase a laptop cooler pad to create additional cooling solutions, but this may not help since the system is not designed to play games.

My Laptop is Acer Aspire 3050- PC Notebook when i play games laptop ,it became too heat and suddenly shutdown.(between 15 -20). it will happen only when play games, For other purpose it will work...


The laptop was not designed to gaming ..and when you use it for gaming the video card and the cpu are forced too much for it ..The system is shutting down cause it gets to the top heat point ..
The cpu has a top heating point set in BIOS ..and when it gets to it ..the system is shutting down automatically as a protection ..i suggest to avoid forcing it and if you still want to run large games on it ..you need to upgrade the heat dispenser and also get an external cooler for it ..
here are some ex..
http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/laptop-cooling/737_7124_70133_xx_xx/xx-criteria.html
Also check in bios settings if the cpu is set for the max temperature allowed..to be sure it has the correct settings ..just enable the optimal factory settings ..or ..if you have it from teh start and you know you never messed with the bios settings ..just let it be ..cause you can do something wrong ..(specially on the hdd bus and will not see your system after )
Another thing that may be wrong is a heat dispenser that does not doing its job ..either dirty or something like that //If you want you can open it up and check ..but the best idea is still to get an external cooling device and improve the temperature control ..

My HP 8710W shuts down when overheated. Usually when playing games. To overcome this, sometimes I let the part of the laptop where the power supply input is located, to stand out of my desk, so that it...


I had similar problem on my HP 8710p and eventually fixed it. Here is how.
First I had a normal overheat situations twice due to clogged dirty fan vents over a period of 4 years. You notice this when the vent cooling fan stays on most of the time, unlike when it was new, even while idling, and of coarse one is reluctant to break open new a PC. After eventually cleaning the fans the problem was resolved but the PC was actually operating at slightly higher average temperatures as the cooling fan would switch on more often that it did when it was new. This is so suttle it did not concern me at the time me until eventually after 18 months, a mere boot would send the cooling fan into frenzy of cooling mode and usually switch the PC off before a full boot could be achieved.(and yes my cooling fins were spotless as I cleaned these once a month at this point).
System reboots were a nightmare as I would have to wait for 30 mins for the CPU to cool down. Eventually I lifted my keyboard on the left side and slipped a small 5 volt fan onto the processor. The fan was powered by a USB port. This worked great but directly cooling the CPU also meant directly depositing dust directly onto the inside of your PC which had to be cleaned with compressed air at least once a week. That was besides the fact that I had to contend with a lop-sided keyboard because of the fan height.
After a year of this I finally I decided to rather try replacing my CPU as I had run out of options. While searching eBay I discovered that CPU cooling apparatus'us were sold in conjunction with CPU's so I decided to buy the cooling apparatus first as a replacement CPU was pricey, especially for an older PC. Skeptical about about my decision, I replaced the CPU cooling apparatus.
To my amazement the problem was solved. Where before I could not even touch the copper tubing near my CPU with my bare finger, now it was cool, probably no more than 30 C and booting was silent. Needing to be sure of this, I replaced the previous cooler and the problem returned, the CPU cooling apparatus copper evaporated spit near the CPU and miraculously cooled down to a room temperature on the fin end.
This was difficult to understand because copper is a very good conductor of heat and here clearly was a situation where the one end of the copper tubing was hot enough to boil spit and the other was at room temperature.

So what can cause this? I am not sure exactly but its not mentioned any where on the Internet as a fix, Not even by HP themselves.
I suspect initial over heating may have messed with the internal climate system in the copper tubing to the extent that the coolant dissipated, probably due to high pressure. The faulty cooling apparatus did not demonstrate any signs of ware and tare, actually the replacement cooling apparatus looked worse than mine as the copper had lost its sheen. I also examined the faulty apparatus from close up for any possible cracks and holes and found nothing visibly wrong. All I had to go on is that the replacement worked and mine did not.
My CPU now peaks at around 50 C when number crunching and the cooling fan is seldom activated. The copper tubing is warm, but not hot, right up to the area where the CPU is located. My system runs so quiet now it has a feeling of newness about it. That raises another question, modern PC's have normally have self preservation software coded into their BIOS that prevents or slows down the CPU clock speeds when over heated or running on battery. The battery part is to conserve power but the heating part is to not do irreparable damage to the CPU. This feature is usually referred to as "dynamic clocking". A hot CPU will run at the slowest possible speed it can function at, (beyond this it will be shut down) at a time when you are trying to crank every bit performance out of it. So it goes without saying my PC now runs faster and appears to be more responsive, just like the day I bought it.
While this occurred to my HP 8710P, I know the problem occurs to many aging laptops that can by fixed the same way. Currently there are many alternative external CPU coolers being sold to solve this problem(and I have seen many and the ones I purchased I have returned). I believe that Trojans and viruses are not always responsible for sluggish PC's. Until you address the real issue, your problem will continue. Consider the above as an option.
My PC was headed for the trash heap. (I am a developer, not a gamer) but now it will stay. Its reliable, trustworthy and never had a problem besides the cooling issue.

My laptop fan makes alot of noise and gets heated up very quickly.all the games i play cause the laptop to shut down without warning due to overheating.i have tried getting it cleaned, but it doesnt...


Laptop Fan noise:

This seems to be a common problem with laptops over a couple of years old. Dust gets trapped in the copper fins and the fan of the CPU heatsink and reduces the efficiency of the cooling, which results in regular power off's by the laptop as it gets over it's upper temperature setting. The fix is relatively easy, just remove the heatsink unit, blow it clean with compressed air, clean the old CPU heatsink paste off with isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and spray a thin film of heatsink paste on the CPU.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

My laptop suddenly shut down when playing game.. the fan is clean..i tough it is covered with dust..but thats no it


If the laptop shuts down and won't boot up again until it has cooled down, then the laptop is overheating and causes the CPU to shutdown. If this fault is not fixed then eventually the CPU will fail.
The fan may not be covered with dust, but did you check the heat-sink?
The heat-sink fins maybe clogged with dust.
Check the fan, does it spin freely, if not the fan maybe faulty and needs to be replaces.
