The CPU voltage in no way can be 1100 V, let us say about 1.100V? There are a lot of undercooled computers that people have bought. In fact of the ones that I have checked, they all needed just a little more cooling than to be pulling your hair later. You are lucky that you have a laptop. The laptops are the most overheated, to the point that some people came up with add-on cooling trays and other gadgets. I think that it would be ashamed to have your pride and joy go to an early grave because some dxdxd (to the cube) engineer let the marketeers insist in the smaller erything. Now, your only way to get some life out of them is to use one of these cooling trays. You don't have to buy it, you can make your own. The construction I have seen is very simple. Thank you for your consideration and your choice to use our service... My name is Constantin (arzconst is my internal nickname under Fixya.com).

Hello im getting extreme overheatting on my acer aspire 5720z im using a cooler pad under my laptop, anyway sometimes it just shutdown. its clean too. how can i set up the fan to run all the time??


Try to clean the heatsink of your laptop to avoid dust. Unfortunately, there is no 3rd party utility to control acer laptops fans. You would have to clock down your cpu/gpu to avoid over heating.

This is a middle pin issue, you will find the laptop doesn't charge either but will power the unit, if the power is connected, the laptop will hang and use reserve resources, if you unplug it, the machines performance will dramatically increase.

replace your power adaptor and all will be fine, i have had the same issue.

Maximum of 1 GB per slot.
Yes, you can buy DDR400, it will be underclocked by the motherboard to DDR266. If you want some extra performance you can go in the BIOS and lower the timings one unit.
Yes, they will work, but not very fast. They should be used only as a last option.

I have motherboard ms8137c with cpu 1.6 ghz but it works like on 950 mhz, what sould i do to repair that


All Athlons were until a few months ago named on a power rating, not actual CPU speed rating. Since you didn't tell me the exact type of your processor i believe that it's the actual , normal speed of your CPU. But if it isn't then it's underclocked. To verify that go in the BIOS and see if the FSB is the correct value - 133MHz - sometimes it's at the default value of 100MHz. This can be changed from 2 locations:
1 - the JP4 jumper on the motherboard - 2-3 corresponds to 133MHz (of course you should change it only with the pc is disconnected from the mains)
2 - in BIOS go to Frequency/Voltage Control - CPU Host Clock and set it to 133.

My Toshiba Satellite A75-s206 shuts down by itself. When I feel the bottom it's burning hot. Could this be my fan not working properly? Please help.


I am a Toshiba Laptop Tech. The A75 in notorious for over heating. The fins on the heat sink get clogged with link much like you clothes dryer. This restricts airflow which leads to overheating and ultimately the machine will shut itself down.

The Solution:
By some canned PC air and blow in into the fans from the bottom.

If you are feeling gutsy, disassemble the machine clean the fans, heat sink and apply the thermo-heat grease.

How is your cpu cooler? Sounds like it could be a heat issue. How long before it freezes? Will it actually boot through to the operating system or freeze on start up? If it runs for a while then freezes it sure could be overheating.

Unwanted Shut-off


First Charge up you battery while the computer is off. Once fully charged unplug the adapter and play the game...see if it shuts down. If not replace that ac adapter. If it still shuts down... Your unit is overheating most likely. When you play high tech games which cause the processor and fans to run harder once it gets to hot. And most times you can hear the fan running loud on your laptop. 1. check the system requirements on the game 2. Are you overclocking your processor, check your bios 3. Lower the graphics settings and features in your game.. see if it shuts down 3.Or while you are running the game do the follow hit ctrl, alt, del buttons at the same time. A task manager box will pop up. Click on the tab Performance.....what is your cpu usage? 100% if so it's running the proccessor hard. Now in the same box click on Processes, then user name, you will then see all processes that are running at that time. If you want to play the game off line...only!!! you can stop some processes from running. On the bottom right hand corner of your screen by the clock you will see icons that load up at startup. Right click the ones not in use, like virus scan, firewall, other background applications that are running by right clicking over the icon and exiting or closing the application. Now keep in mind before you go back on line you should restart your computer so your security software will reload. Other reasons would be internal cleaning, fan, heatsink replacements and so forth. Which may need to be performed by a professional repair shop. Now they do have a laptop colling pad which have worked for some people. Also these laptops can overheat quickly, do not sit them on beds, and your lap when using ventilation is important. And also you might still want to have that ac adapter checked out. If all else fail... restart you computer in safe mode...try running the game..see if it shuts down. Good luck with your games
