Your fan speeds up and slows down in response to temperature inside the computer. More so the CPU.

I would suggest getting a can of compressed air made for computers

take it outside, take of the side and blow all the gunk out of there, Really go to town around the fan (you might want to wear eye protection)
While you are in there just check that the CPU cooler itself is not loose

If it is it will have to be re-seated.

If it needs re-seating don't just take it off and put it back on as that might make things worse with your temperature problem the have to be cleaned and new thermal grease put on

I think this may be your problem before you buy a new CPU make sure you check the cooler assembly and make sure you use new thermal grease ($2-5)

DON'T remove the CPU just the fan/cooler assembly.

You must clean both the surfaces without scraping anything off. Use isopropynol alcohol and cotton bud sticks until both surfaces are clean, you can use your finger nail to scrape harder residue if you wish but nothing else.

DON'T pour the alcohol over the CPU

Now apply some new thermal grease (most computer shops have it)
Be careful about how much you put on
Here are
some basic instructions

Once you have re-assembled your cooler and re-connected it check everything is OK and power up the computer.

If everything went to plan you should now be back in business

    It may well be some form of virus or spyware.

    It may also be that you have too many applications running at once eg. lots of toolbars and instant message typ programs.

    It can also happen on graphic intensive applications.

    You should rule out nasty stuff first.

    MBAM !


    for a free one its pretty darned good !

    From a CLEAN computer download and put on a flash drive.

    Copy to your DESKTOP on the suspec computer.

    Run it but dont change any options just use what it offers.

    When its done let it clean anything it finds.

    Its where I always start with an infected machine.

    As for antivirus AVOID Norton or Mcafee but try the AVG FREE version MBAM should clean up without buying

    Only continued use would require purchase As for too many applications that would be up to you to decide what you REALLY need and dont. Most toolbars are a waste of both time and space and can hog computers down. Maybe a good clean up is in order ?

    It may just be a "leaking application"

    These are badly coded programs that dont release memory when they should and just keep taking more to do the same job.

    May I suggest you download
    "hijackthis"

    It is a program that can make a report on what you have running in such a way that you can post that information to certain sites and experts there will look at it.

    They will then give you reccomendations as to how you can remove programs or fix some issues that may be upsetting your computer.

    Dont post the log here but follow the nstructions and help the program offers to send it to one of the sites it will offer you.

    If you understand startup lists you may even be able to spot som things yourself that you dont want to run and disable them from hijack this.

Why does my computer automatically shut itself down on the same day each week.


There are a couple possibilities...first, when you say shut down, do you mean that it restarts, or it actually shuts completely off? Windows update will auto-run weekly and restart the system if necessary. Otherwise, I'd suspect something with your antivirus scanner settings.

My laptop turns itself of after 3 - 5 minute


Check the charger of your laptop if there is any place that has problem or cut? check the voltage of your laptop whether is the same thing with the charger. If everything are fine, then reload your operating system, because I have noticed this problem with my clients. Good luck

your PC got a Dangerous Virus.
the Virus Shuts down or resets The PC in order to spread (in whole of the PC) more.
so download and install a new anti virus.(Like Nod32 or Norton etc)
then update it and run a full scan.

I was running the program "windon Defender" on it and walked away. When I returned the computer was off and wasn't turn back on.


The Windows Defender Application is the Antivirus Software which will be pre-installed with the Windows Operating System(Windows Vista, Windows 7).
The Computer will always Shut down after any Windows Updates or any Operating System Updates are downloaded and installed.
If you are connected to the Internet and running Windows Defender, the Computer will automatically download the Updates for the Windows Defender Application.
Once the Updates are downloaded and installed, the Computer will prompt for a shut down.
The count down will be for 10 seconds.
After 10 seconds, the Computer will install the downloaded Updates and shut down.
This might be the reason for the Computer to shut down while using the Windows Defender.

If the Computer still shuts down randomly, the issue might be due to overheating.
All the Processors in Notebooks are designed to shut down automatically, if there is any overheating issues.
The overheating issue mainly occurs due to the malfunction of the Cooling fan.
If the Computer shuts down frequently, the issue might be due to the above factors.
It would be better to get the Unit examined at the Service Center.

Installed a video card xfx on windows xp pro now computer shut of


its a normal process when you installed a new Video Card. the only problem there is, if its not compatible with the chipset of your main board. it will create an error and slow down your system/computer later on. to check it, see the manual of your main board and find what its chipset.
