What is formula 5? any way remove the fan and heatsink, clean out the underside of the heatsink (remove the old heatsink compound if any)and the top of the processor. replace copmound with new copmound(a little bit goes a long way, do not over apply), re-assembly and re connect the fans power connector to the correct connector on the main board,power on pc and go to the bios settings and check that every thing is ok. make sure that the processor is set to normal or auto and that it is not over-colcked

Inspiron 1501 error code 3700:0118


Three reasons a laptop will overheat and shut down:

1. Dust - Dust inside, dust clogging the vents, dust around the cpu and heat sink. Blow out the dust with a can of compressed air.

2. A Fan not working. Take the laptop apart and replace the fan. Just put Dell Inspiron 1501 Fan in the seach box on ebay. You'll see plenty of them at:

http://www.ebay.com

3. Thermal Paste around the CPU and Heat Sink has dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool. Apply a fresh coat of thermal paste on the cpu and heat sink. Even if you just change the fan, apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste.

Also you can buy a Laptop Cooling Pad at Tiger Direct for under $15. It plugs into one of the usb ports and the laptop sits on it. It has fans to keep the unit cool.

Emachines t5212 overheat message then shuts down


Three causes of ovheating:
1) Dust. Dust inside the computer, Dust around the vents, fans, cpu and heat sink. Take a can of compressed air and clean the dust out of the computer.

2) A Fan not working. Make sure the fan inside the Power Supply where you plug the power cord in works. Also there is a fan that sits on top of the CPU and Heat Sink. Make sure it works. Normally the system will give you an error message if the fan is not working.

3) Thermal Paste - The Thermal Paste around the cpu and heat sink has dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool. Apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste on the CPU and Heat Sink.

Laptop shuts off afer 5 minutes


Sounds like your laptop might be overheating. Does it reboot successfully immediately after is shuts down after 5 minutes or does it have to sit awhile before it reboots successfully?

If you can't boot it right back up after it shuts down, then it is definitely running hot and will only boot back up successfully after it sits awhile to cool off.

Things that cause it to run hot:
1) Dust... Dust clogged in the vents, fans and around the cpu and heat sink.
2) A Fan is not working
3) The Thermal Paste around the CPU and Heat Sink has dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool.

For the best results you'll have to take the laptop apart to remedy the situation especially if you need to get to the Fan, CPU or Heat Sink.

You can try a can of compressed air and blow out the vents and fan area, that might work for a while but you'll be blowing the dust in. It's best to take it apart and blow the dust out.

Acer Aspire 4930 heats up very quickly


When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the 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 with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

PC restarted by it's own. Temperature fast to hot


The system is heating up really fast is caused by not enough cool air being directed to your CPU, Turn off the computer un-plug everything from the wall and carefully remove the side panel, not touching anything on the inside, look for the fan should be clearly to see, after that look closely enough to see behind the fan if its all dirty and filled with un-known substances then it requires cleaning. you can remove the screws holding the fan in place to give it a light clean, and put the fan back on, before putting the side panel back on check to make sure the screws holding the lump of metal is tight, after all that turn the computer back on and it should remain on.
The main cause to why the computer shuts down is because the CPU gets so hot the computer automatically shuts itself down to protect itself from over heating and causing damage.

My 4 year old Acer Aspire 5520 notebook shuts off on me at random time periods. I try keeping it proped up and keeping it cool but that doesnt even seen to help. It doesnt over heat but just decides to...


Have you cleaned the cpu fan? The computer has a cpu fan that can get dirty over time. It's job is to keep the cpu cool. When the cpu overheats, the computer senses it and shuts it down immediately, to prevent permanent damage to the cpu. You can clean it by blowing compressed air into it, and should do that every few months, as routine maintenance. This is the most common thing that shuts a laptop down, other problems involve repair, so try this first. I bough a $7 three inch fan at Walmart to help cool the laptop, and when I run it, I never have it shut down on me, but once in awhile it will without the fan, especially when I play dvds or videos, which really work th' heck out of the cpu. There are also commercial laptop cooling devices, but my little fan works just fine. The other thing that could be happening is some problem with windows, which is something I couldn't begin to guess. Hope it's just a bit too much heat.

Computer shut down on it's own and will not restart. I get the blue lights on front but no other activity


You could have a faulty fan and/or heatsink/fan assembly clogged with dust.
When a laptop shuts down and will bot boot up again until it has cooled down, then this is a CPU thermal shutdown and if not corrected then eventually the CPU will fail completely.
Check the fan to see if it spins freely and turns on, if not replace the fan. Also remove the dust off the fan and heat-sink assembly.
If you are still having problems you can purchase a fan assisted cooling pad. Place the laptop on the cooling pad and it provides addition fan assisted air to the bottom of the laptop vents.

Shut down itself


Hi i'm Rain.
If your Laptop is over heating you may need to look into a stronger type of cooling system { Fan }
But for now lets set up your power Options settings
to try to keep your CPU cool.
In power options select Power Saver.
If you see the selection to keep the fan running select it also. save and exit.
Hopefully this will help to keep your system cool until you can service it.

Computer keeps shutting down. It will start up and sometimes work for a while then shut down unpromted. Or if I start it, the computer will just keep shutting down and restarting for no reason. I can get...


That sounds like either a graphics problem or more likely a memory problem. Try taking out a couple sticks of RAM or leave just one in and try that.

Laptop switched off while i was working on it


After the notebook shuts down do not turn it back on for 15 minutes and then test it again. Will the notebook work longer if you let it cool down for a while? Isn’t it hot if you touch the bottom? Can you hear the fan running?
Most likely you experience a laptop overheating problem and it would be fixed by cleaning the cooling module – the heat sink and the fan. The notebook processor produces a lot of heat when the notebook is turned on. The cooling module helps to keep the CPU cool when the laptop is working. The cooling module includes two parts: the heat sink and the cooling fan. The heat sink is attached to the CPU and helps to conduct the heat from the processor to the radiator. The cooling fan blows on the radiator and helps to disperse the heat produced by the CPU. The laptop will overheat if the heat sink radiator is clogged with lint and dust or if the cooling fan stopped spinning.
If your laptop shuts down after some time without any reason and warning, check if the cooling fan spins. Usually it makes some noise and you can hear it. If the fan works fine, then check if the heatsink is clogged. In some cases you can clean the heat sink with compressed air, just blow inside the fan openings on the laptop bottom. If the heatsink is completely clogged, then it is necessary to remove the heatsink for cleaning.
