That would be normal, as the variable speed fan comes on only when the computer is under load.

What is not normal is that the fan is not coming on when the computer overheats.Or that the fan is not cooling enough when computer is overheating.

Monitor computer temperature using a software, check if Fan is coming up when temperature gets critical.

If fan comes up but does not cool enough, then replace the fan, it is not efficient anymore because of a bad bearing or dust. ~Also ensure that fan is well mounted, if fan has poor contact with CPU surface , cooling will be poor.

If fan does not come up, and critical temp is not detected, then the sensor on motherboard is bad, this is very uncommon. When this happens the problem is usually related to system or power settiings , rather than overheating.

If fan does not come up and temp is critical, then fan is faulty, replace it.

There are also more than one fan on many laptops, check that one of the fans (CPU fan, video fan) is not completely ded, and therefore cause for the problem.

By using the software below you can also find out if the problem is really overheating. If temperature results within normal range, then usually it is not overheating.In that case test systtem and check power saving settings.

Here is the software to control your fan and temp. sensor state:

Hi,

there is probably something wrong with processor's fan. The fan keeps blowing air on to the processor and motherboard which in turn helps the system stay comparatively cool. In case the fan stops working or does not work as efficiently as it is supposed to - you must get it checked and then get it replaced. Usually fans are damaged because too much lint and dust stores within the computer which causes your samsung laptop overheating problems.

How to fix not working touchscreen? Do i have to replace it?


The Samsung Q1 is a hybrid, ultra-mobile, touch-screen device that is basically a very small tablet PC. It features a 7-inch screen, weighs a mere 1.7 lbs., features a Windows operating system, doesn't have a built-in keyboard, and comes in a variety of configurations. The Samsung Q1 doesn't offer outstanding battery life, but you can make some moves to boost your computing time.

Dim the Screen

Dim the screen brightness. Four programmable application-launch buttons occupy the right edge of the Q1. One of these, the menu button, calls up frequently-used controls, including screen brightness. Reduce the screen brightness as much as you can, as it's one of the best ways to extend battery life.
Close Power-hogging Apps

Close applications and browser windows when you're done with them. Too many open programs drain the battery. Beware power-hogging apps. Watching a video or listening to music on your Q1 drains your battery life much faster than just using Microsoft Word or checking email. Turn off the Wi-fi networking when not in use. The built-in Wi-fi searches for a network when you're not connected, which drains battery life.

Properly Caring for and Feeding a Battery

Unplug the Samsung Q1 after the battery is fully charged. Leaving your Q1 plugged in 24/7 leads to some discharge from the battery. Consider buying a bigger battery. A 3-cell battery comes with most configurations of the Q1, but you can also buy a 6-cell battery to double the battery life.

Room Temperature is Best

Don't expose the Q1 to harsh conditions. Keeping the device in a blazing hot car in direct sunlight harms your battery life. If you use your Q1 in conditions above 95 degrees Fahrenheit, you can permanently damage the battery. Cold conditions don't harm the battery in the same way, but if you leave the Q1 in the cold, let it warm to room temperature before you use it.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

The screen will not power on


If your Q1 won't turn on and the charging light just flickers, most likely you have inadvertently shifted the Hold slider button and your Q1 is on Hold. The Hold function prevents most functions on the Q1 from operating.
To get your Q1 to turn on, shift the Hold slider button so that Hold is turned off.


this button should be on the side of the device


let me know if you need further help

I need to install an operating system on a Samsung q1 ultra


Suggest you use an external DVD drive, and put your installation disk in it. Then access the BIOS Setup utility.

In BIOS Setup, find the Boot Order menu. (Generally, along the top headings of the main menu, in BIOS Setup, or located in Advanced BIOS Settings) Set the first boot device to be CDROM. Be sure to Save your change.
This way the handheld, will boot from the installation disk, in your external DVD drive.

Should you be trying to downgrade from Vista to XP, you have to change the first boot device, in Boot Order to CDROM. If not, Vista won't let you overwrite it.
Vista is an upgrade over XP.

I dropped my q1 and the battery fell out. I tryed to restart, but now I just get a gray screen. PLEASE HELP!!!!


Assuming that your battery is making proper contact with the Q1 battery terminals, this problem suggests that your hard disk drive has been disturbed from the shock the system received when it was dropped. You may have lost all the data in your Q1. You may have to reinstall the system.
