Dell c640 overheat

My dell c640 fell from the table. Since then - it works OK except that it emits so much heat, and the diagniztics results in fan speed of 12000 rpm or so.
I suppose that the processor speed is automatically reduced as a result.
So you think that processor's heat sink has moved? What can I do?

You need a new fan it is a Pain In the Neck(just did it on a c630 p3
(just like c640)
the whole thing has to be taken apart, then install the fan
you can get the part(fan) on ebay

There would be no way to know if that is the case without opening the machine. I suggest taking it to a certified
laptop repair technician near you ( a Dell Store if under warranty ), and explaining the issue to them. I have not seen
this happen myself ( the heatsink popping off ) but that's not to say it can't happen. I suggest having the laptop
looked at sooner than later, as each time you turn it on and it overheats it reduces the life expectancy of your
unit.

Over heating...


Could be the cooling fan has stopped working, or is running slow due to dust blocking the fan and vents on the case.

Dell C640 wireless not working


I used Everest home edition to find the wireless drivers for my DELL C640 laptop.   The wireless card in it is an  ntel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B MiniPCI Adapter (IBM). I've downloaded the wireless driver from Intel's website, here: 
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=944&OSFullName=Windows*+XP+Professional〈=eng&strOSs=44&submit=Go!#DRI
It's the 3rd result in that search page. If the link doesn't work, simply search for Intel® PRO/Wireless 2100 Network Connection on Intel's site. 
That Dell C640 wireless driver works fine for me, I'm using the wireless card to type this :)    
good luck!
