Hello

The computer is usually clogged with dust and other debris. See if the following instructions help.

compaq nc6220 disassembly instructions
http://static.tigerdirect.com/pdf/c00622160.pdf Compaq Manual

Goto page 107 and follow the instructions to page 108.
Goto page 118 and follow the instructions to page 121.
Goto page 126 and see below:

Be sure to have a duster can with a extender tube on hand now.

On Page 126 You will remove the fan. This and the next page are the purpose
of doing this work. Follow the fan removal instructions. Check that the fan
turns freely. Take the duster and the fan and carry it outside if it is very
dusty and clogged up. Now blow the dust and accumulated debris from the fan.
Set the fan aside.

On Page 127 You will only examine the heat sink, do NOT remove any screws here!!!
The heatsink is a copper or black colored assembly with heatpipes that curve to
the right into the cooling vanes. Look into the cooling vanes that are located
in the area where the fan was mounted. If there is blockage take you duster and
the extender tube. Insert the tube into the duster and try to hold the can
upright at all times. Now spray the gas into the cooling vanes with the tube
facing the side of the computer. This will be dusty. You may want to do it
outside if careful. Otherwise, wear a dust filter mask.

To re-assemble follow the instructions in reverse order.

If there was a blockage you will see a immediate improvement.
I hope that this helps.

Once you cool the computer down turn it back on and listen for the fan running. If you cannot hear it you will need to replace it. Make sure you are using your laptop on a hard flat surface. Using your lap or a pillow is the most common cause of overheating. Don't keep using the computer if it continues to overheat like this, overheating will eventually ruin your hard drive and cause a mess of problems. If your fan does seen to be running ok, try running out and getting a cooling pad to use your laptop while it's on your lap, some of the new ones have fans in them which will give you an extra boost of help on keeping your computer running cool at all times.

Don't worry your computer fan is not broken and does not need replacing. What you do need to do though is always keep the laptop on a hard surface so as to increase airflow and never block the vents up otherwise the laptop will heat up even more. You can buy a fan board such as this http://www.xpad4laptop.com/?gclid=COK92bOooZsCFdUB4wodjVZ7DQ This will cool your laptop down even more. Hope this helped. Please rate me if it did.

The fix is easier than you think, you need a new element, and some of them DO last up to 20 years.....if you treat then well. Don't forget to clean out you vent hose and the outside of the vent to...prevents fires!!

Heating problem


I can't solve your problem, but since so many people who own a highlander are have the same types of problems, it seems to me that Toyota should be checking into this problem.

What do you think?
I am going to call my dealer today.
