Play system for 30-45 minutes and turns off randomly


This may be a problem with overheating. When the system overheats, it shuts off automatically in order to prevent hardware damage. When your system crashes, try feeling it to see if it is warm or very hot. If this is the case, you may want to move it to a more open area or try putting a fan onto it to reduce the heat. If it doesn't feel hot, then it may be a problem with your fan. If you do not hear a fan running or can't feel the air while playing the game, your internal fan may be busted. I suggest going to a repair store (such as Best Buy) and checking out the issue if it does turn out to be an internal issue.

It sounds like your system might be running hot. Do you hear the fan running? If so it will turn on after it has cooled off, but once it gets hot it will turn off. If you immediately try to turn it back on, it won't work until the system has cooled off.

Laptops overheat because of the following problems:
1. Dust has clogged the Fans, Vents, CPU & Heat Sink Area
2. The FAN has stopped working
3. The Thermal Paste around the CPU and HeatSink has either dried up or is too thin to keep the system cool.

Try a can of compressed air and blow out the areas you can get to around the vents. You'll have to take the laptop apart to get to the Fan, CPU and Heatsink

Hi, I ahe a dell computer model number dccy, i want to know why it turn off by itself, when it get to hot, when i have more than ten minute working with it, why if turn off


When the CPU in the computer or laptopoverheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot upagain until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then theCPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this 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 withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

I have a 2001 Mazda Tribute. The blowers for the fan work just fine, but the air never gets warm. Any idea what it is?


your heater core could be clogged. flush out your whole cooling system and hopefully that fixes the problem

Turned on AC was running fine. 30 minutes later began to hear a strange noise. Opened AC/Furnance closet & heard a sound best described as air letting out of a tire. It seemed to be coming from...


Hi!!

This means that the condenser fan motor (outside unit) failed, this caused to build hi pressure and either activated a safety valve to release the extra pressure or blew a line and R22 Refrigerant escaped from system.

The fix is to replace motor fan and capacitor find the leak and refill system with R22 Refrigerant Gas. It is safe to turn on the Fan Only mode on the Thermostat until a HVAC Tech arrives.
To perform this job parts and labor included will cost: about $300 -.$400. Look on the Yellow Pages for a Tech in your neighborhood.

May be a shorted metal stirrer fan bearing located within the wave guide that feeds microwaves into the cooking area. If the oven is run without a proper load (water, or food), the voltage of the microwaves increase considerably causing things to arc-over inside the wave guide. You usually can't see the stirrer bearing short as it occurs internally.

Fan quits and the compressor still runs


is this a split residential system. it sounds like you are talking about the condenser fan either way it seems like the fan is overamping and tripping on thermal overload which is a device in the motor that protects itself. when you shut it off for a while and turn it back on does the fan work. if you turn it off then turn it right back on does the fan work. when it shuts off is the motor really hot. if possible, and you know how, check amp draw. typically you can find the rated amp draw on the motor nameplate.
