I personally had this model for about a year. It was one of the last laptops to have actual Pentium 4 processors put in it. They create a ton of heat and the heatsink design will clog just like the lint catcher in your dryer. Try this:

1. Take out of the battery and remove the AC Adapter
2. Flip the laptop upside down and locate the two fans towards the back corner.
3. Using an air compressor, shortly shoot air into those fans shooting towards the back of the laptop. (can of air is never strong enough)
4. You should see dust and **** fly out the back.

Note: this is not generally very good for your fans so try not to overkill them. You can keep your laptop in clean areas and even use one of those cooling pads but you will still get dust to stack up inside. I personally did this to my laptop every 2-3 months to keep it clean.

HP Lap top touch pad locked. How to correct please


By now you probably figured out you have to remove the power cord and battery to turn off the laptop. Let it cool down, 30 minutes or so, and then replace the battery and restart the laptop.

The lap top wont turn on. I tried to remove the battery then plug in the power supply and still it wont turn on. The blue light on the power supply turns off as soon as you plug it in to the lap top.


PLACE YOUR SYSTEM UPSIDE DOWN AND REMOVE THE BATTERY AS ITS TEMPERATURE IS IN WORSE STATE .TRY TO COOL IT DOWN .IN FUTURE PLACE YOUR SYSTEM ON SOME MATERIAL SO THAT THE AIR SUPPLY REMAINS CONSTANT AND TEMPERATURE OF SYSTEM DONT REACH ITS CRITICAL RANGE.

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.

I have the Dell 1525. The screen is black with only the cursor appearing. Please advise


Check to see if you have the machine switched out to a stand alone monitor. This is a feature on many lap tops that lets you re-direct the signal out to a larger monitor, or if your monitor fails you can display the computer info on another screen. This feature is engaged by holding down the Fn key and tapping teither the F4, or F6 key on many lap tops. This feature can be toggled by both displaying at the same time or switched to the stand alone or the Lap top.

The other cause is that the machine has malfunctioned usually because of the CPU failure and there is nothing to boot the machine up.

Can't change temp setting. no response from soft touch buttons for warmer/cooler temp. changed batteries but no difference.


if the stat is in auto changeover from heat to cool you might need to lower the heat temperature setting before you can lower the cooling setting, these need to be 2 to 3 degrees apart and the stat will not let you over lap them.

Please post what the temperatures read after you have had the computer running for a little while. Most likely this issue is a heating issue. Thank you.

Lap top will not start up


First that u need to do is to remove the battery from your toshiba laptop. Plug in the AC adapter alone and power it on. If it works, then u need to check your battery. If the notebook wont power on with the AC adapter alone, then i think its a NO POST issue. The motherboard needs to be checked.
