Question about Computers & Internet
The laptop got overheated, & died down. Tried to restart. The screen flashed & died down again. Now it won't start even when I've it hooked up to the power outlet.
Buy a laptop cooler, the more fans the better. If your handy with a drill, remove the cover from the bottom of the comp. you will see the heatsink it is copper in color, mark out it's directional layout using a piece of paper, then transfer this pattern to the cover. Drill some 1/8" oles along the pattern. This will give the laptop cooler more holes to push air into the comp. works great my laptop is now working better after hours of use.
Also, buy a new hard drive there not that expensive and easy to install, use the software that you have that came with the laptop and reload the new drive.
Buy a 2.5 remote hard drive case with a usb connection, reload your files on the new drive.
Even if you thhink the hd is no good it will sometimes almost always be readab. but will not boot the system due to bad sectors.

When the laptop over heats simply unplug the AC cord and remove the battery. Then hold the power button for approx 1 minute. Place the battery back and plug it in and the laptop should power back up just fine.

An easy fix! On the bottom of the 6200 are some vent slits to bring air in, over some heat syncs and out on your right hand and mouse. Dust is sucked in the bottom and collects in a cute little felt pad blocking the heat syncs. Remove the screws and slide the panel to remove. Inside are three more screws holding the fan. Being careful to not drop the screws into your PC (!!!) remove the fan. Inside you will see the dust. I recommend holding the PC right side up and working so things fall out of the PC instead of in to it. Depending on how dusty of an environment you work in you may need to do this every few months or maybe only every few years.
Good luck, and don’t drop screws into your Notebook :-)
