Question about PC Laptops
I have overheating problems with my laptop, Packard Bell E3245, when using certain programs, like
listening to music (watching video is no problem though),
with scanning, if document is long,
with Skype, if other websites are opened.
In these cases CPU goes up to 98%, in a few minutes the computer becomes too hot and it turns off unless closing the program mentioned above.
Listening to music from cd or from files wasn't a problem before, until about a year ago.
Otherwise computer and fans work properly, the air vents are not blocked.
I would really appreciate if you could help me what to do.
Does updating BIOS help?
Thanks a lot
One of the most common problems with older & a lot of newer notebooks has been battery's over heat & the system shuts down. I suggest you remove the battery & run off the AC power cord. Run the programs you mentioned & see if the notebook shuts down. This is only a test.
Packard Bell has a site where it can Diagnosis & Repair some problems loacated at this link. Try it.
