As for the overheating cause, I can only say if you've ever added on hardware to it maybe the current fan is inadequate for the job. As a solution I would see about getting an upgraded, fan. Or buy a cooling stand, they plug into a USB and your laptop sits on top of it. Hope this helps.

Tim, have you ever gotten to the bottom of your problem with this unit? I have one of these in my shop. When it was first brought to me it would not boot at all, blank screen, cap lock, and scroll lock lights would blink. I saw one post here stating this was indicative of a bad motherboard. However I was able to get it to boot after using a live cd. I now have the exact same concern you have, boots, runs for about 4-5 minutes and overheats and shuts down. I have yet to disassemble it to see if there's anything prohibiting airflow, but was pondering the idea of the motherboard preventing full voltage to the cooling fan?

My fan is not running on my presario cq56 lap top~ do you know of exsisting problems w/ this laptop??? and pls how to get to fan~ tysm!


When 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.

My note book become heated and shut down I have been checked the fan is working


One of the things people purchase with lap tops is a fan pad that assists with heating distribution. You can purchase these just about any electronics store. Your fan also may be working but not working to its fullest capacity they are designed to shut down when they get hot no worries.
I would have this checked out and purchase one of those lap external USB fans for cooling assistance. They do work my friends all have them it is common these days and also blow them out once in awhile keep dust down. I hope this assisted you with your question thanks for using FixYa for all your questions. John

When plugged in the unit starts to smell hot like an electical burn,


Turn it on turn it over and see if the fan is operating. If not power your lap top off and replace the fan. You may have to not use this computer until the fan is replaced it is advisable not to. The smell you have may be dust smell when it gets hot. Clean throughly and make sure that all the dust is out of your computer. Also recommended a lap fan also which goes underneath the laptop to assist with cooling.
Lap tops are very touchy and need to be kept cool at all times otherwise you will be purchasing a new lap top if you do not take care of the cleaning or the cooling or the fan not working or spinning slowly. Check all this out. Critical if you do not understand what I mean take your computer to a local shop for immediate care. I hope this assisted you. John

My processor is getting hot. What will be the solution.


Turn it off ... it will not get hot.

Typically, normal temperature is over 100 degrees. There have been reports of fires starting as the result of a overheated PC. I am not making the claim, I have not had this experience.

Heat is the enemy of delicate computer parts. They call them Lap Tops but you should never use one on your lap. Always place your lap top on a hard surface to insure the vents are not blocked and the internal fan can try to do its job. If you are concerned about the heat, you can get a 'cool pad' to use under your lap top. A cool pad has a fan which blows onto your lap top to keep it cool. The cool pad gets its power from a USB in your laptop. This cool pad should not be used for long periods of time on battery power for obvious reasons.

My dell vostro 1014 is annoying too much. problem in fan. after iuse sometime, the fan stars to noise and hot air comes out. i don't use cooler and i use long time


This is a critical issue you will need to replace the fan inside the lap top. Or clean it the blades may be hitting dust accumulation around the fan. The bearings are getting worn down and soon it will stick and then burn up the CPU change this fan out I would say "RIGHT NOW". If you decided to do this on your own. If you know how to do this or have done lap top repairs before you would know this is so important. It is an indication of things not so pretty to come your way, now is the time for a bath and a new fan. Thanks great question? John

All my saved pictures have been deleted and the screen continually goes blank


Greetings and thanks for the question, there are various reasons why this happens. Without having your computer here to see what is going on is anybody s guess on how to repair it. If I may offer some suggestions. Since I also do not know what operating system you are using I will assume it is Win 7.
I would personally go to control panel and check my power options to make sure I do not have the settings set you close display or sleep mode or anything set to soon to close your machine down. Often times people have these set to go off there are defaulted usually to save battery usage and your lap top from getting to hot and shutting it down. The thermal switch may be activating sooner than normal. What some folks do is purchase one of those underneath fan coolers to keep their lap tops from getting to hot and constantly shutting down.
This can be the case have this checked out at least set the lap top for more time before closing down or turning the monitor off. Let us hope it is not more serious than appears. Like a lamp in the monitor going out. If it is new the lap top I would not worry about that issue because it is intermittent. Which leads me to believe it is a thermal or a shut down issue. Get the cooler fan for your lap top I recommend anyone that reads this post to also do this as well. Clean your lap top blow them out it is critical to do this to keep dust away and keep it clean.
Now there is recovery software which is free to download Click Here to check this out to retrieve lost files. Also important to get those precious memories separate off your computer and on to separate CD or DVD or storage USB stick so that when this type of thing happens you have not lost your precious memories. I hope this helps you. John

Battery maximum usertime&excessive heat generated while using. LENOVO G560 model Under warranty


Most newer lap top computers generate a lot of heat. The designers of the machine walk a narrow line between efficiency and customer satisfaction. The heat comes from the processor and the power supply of the screen. Designers incorporate a standard called heat pipe design into cooling the CPU along with a small fan sometimes. The heat pipe design is a static (no electricity used) means of wicking away the heat from the processor. When the temperature goes higher than the heat pipe can act, a small fan cuts in to reduce the temperature, but at a cost of using electricity from your batteries. The heat of the lap tops have caused people to seek medical help for excessive reddened legs, thus generating a medical syndrome called "Lap top Syndrome"

The batteries are LI-ion (Lithium Ion) construction and have to be re-charged with extreme care as excessive heat generated by charging can case the lithium to burn and cause a fire. Battery designers have placed a small smart chip in the battery pack to monitor the voltage levels and this chip will shut the battery down if too much heat is detected. Since the batteries are of Li-ion design, they start

i do not work with asus but i have dealt with them numerous times and they have the best customer support i have ever dealt with. and they speak english. i would send the laptop back and have them look at it again. laptops do get very hot, they generate a lot of heat. i would suggest a laptop tray so you dont have to put it on your lap. whenever a laptop is not properly ventilated it can cause a lot of problems. including on getting extremely hot. i dont suggest you put any laptop on your bare skin.

My lap top is extra ordinary heated after some time.what is problem?


You didn't mention if you had a laptop or a desktop. But on a laptop there is a small fan on the power supply that cools the CPU and all inside. The laptop must always be used on a flat surface like a table to ensure the air is circulating properly. Putting it on your lap or on your bed will cause it to heat more than usual. Yes they do get hot, the tempature is monitored by your BIOS and will automatically shut down if it gets too hot, this is to save the CPU from being damaged. As long as things are working properly then you are ok.
