You might need to open access covers and do some cleaning as well as vacuuming the dust out. (good article here, and here.or here.) Check for blockage of the fan vent while in use, and if you have set battery save options to prevent the fan from running, disable it. (See here.) You might also check for a bios update for your model here and here as some bios updates have altered the way the cooling fan is controlled.
If you're uncomfortable opening it up or continue to get the error message, have a local tech take a look at it and clean out the heat sink before you have further issues...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

My suggestion would be to open up the computer, be it a laptop, desktop or whatever and check and see if all your fans are hooked up. At minimum you will have a cpu fan and a power supply fan, but most systems built also have at least one other fan hooked up.

I can no longer access MS Office 2003 docs on my computer. It doesnt matter how I try to open them. The message states preparing to install, then a new msg pops up stating Installation source for this...


Hi! I don't know about your previous usage versions of MS Office on your system. I don't know about "genuine" concept over your present MS office 2003.

Mostly, for new system, office would available under trail version only, later it blocks.

Suppose if you tried to update present version to 2003, then there may be chances to loss of some files. At this point, you may get errors while accessing and at the same time, it may show you errors or starts for install process.

try to update your package with online update and with genuine key and have fine with office package

Security Problem Message on PC


You have a spyware infection, plan and simple. Those security warnings (asking you to scan) are not part of the Windows security center.

Download Spybot [ http://www.spybot.com ] for free, scan your system and pray that the spyware has not done irreparable damage to your system files.

System warning pop-up


Are you sure that nothing is overheating? If your cpu fan is turning too slow it won't disipate the heat. Do you have a program showing cpu temp:? I would take the access off the bottom and make sure the cpu fan is clean. If that is not the problem I believe you can turn the warnings off in the bios settings
