PC get shutdown automatically


It can happen in several cases. Like:1. If your processors cooling fan does not run properly or stops running , your processor gets over heated and will automatically shutdown to prevent damage of your motherboard. In this case check this first, If is runs but not seem so smooth, just clean it- dust can jam the cooling fan.

2.If your heat sink under the cooling fan is not perfectly fit on the processor, cooling fan will not able to cool it and will result your machine shutdown!


3. In case of Bad power supply, it can also happen. Check your power supply.


4.If your machine have defected RAM or became defected, it may happen. In this case you may have blue screen with message before shutdown your machine.


5. If you have operating system of Microsoft Windows, please check your hard drive for virus. Virus can shutdown machine with a common period of time! Damaged OS which occurs often in windows operating system also can force to shutdown machine.
Please check which one is in your case. Please mention problem details like something unfamiliar for further query.

WHEN I TURN MY COMPUTER ON A ERROR MESSAGE COMES ON "CPU FAN TO LOW"


This message is a warning that the CPU cooling fan is no longer turning fast enough to adequately cool the CPU. You should not use your computer until the fan is replaced.or the CPU could be permanently damaged as a result of over-heating.

Unless you have replaced these fans before, I would advise you to have the fan replaced by a PC technician as it's pretty easy to damage the processor when removing/installing the fan.

If this information is helpful to you, please rate me on the FixYa website.

How i keep my computer coll?


Most retailers that sell computer stuff have laptop cooling mats. This is a device that you sit your laptop on and it forces air circulation around the bottom of your unit, helping to keep it cool. They normal run 14-25 bucks.

If your using this system at home and can not get an air conditioner for one reason or another they have room coolers based on a different technology and can be rather inexpensive. They are commonly used in server rooms when regular air conditioning just does not work. I can assist in providing more detail on this upon request.

Please keep me posted and updated on your issue. I am here for you and will see your issues out till resolved.

Have a great and wonderful day :)

Thank You

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.

The fan is very noisy


The post begs for the obvious answer: Replace the fan.

Now to be more polite, first you need to identify the failing fan and replace it.

A desktop system can have several fans. Case/processor fan (you can test to see if this is the effected fan by unplugging it for a minute or two from the motherboard (a couple minutes will not hurt the system).

The video card may have a fan on it (Often on the underside if a mini tower) Some video card fans can be easily removed but finding replacement fans can be a challenge. Normally if a video card fan fails, replace the video card.

Most often, the failing fan is in the power supply unit or PSU. If you are handy with electrical components, you can remove the PSU, remove the fan and replace it. If you are not handy electrically, replace the PSU.

Higher end system may have card cage fans to help cool hard drive/expansion cards and others have fans specifically to coll hard drives.

Most manufacturers have spare parts where you can buy parts or you can use google to find specific replacement parts or fan suppliers.

Well, you'll need a wireless router for starters (if you don't already have one). I'd recommend a Linksys wireless router. This will broadcast your internet throughout your house. Make sure to secure it, otherwise neighbors can jump on your wireless. As far as the printer goes, it really depends what your going to be printing. If you need a photo printer, get one that prints great quality images. Thats really up to what you need it for though, a sales associate can answers those questions in person.

CPU cooling fan


Hi...you can press the F2 key to enter setup...and scroll down until the fan is highlited...hit enter and then F10 to save and exit.This tells the computer its OK.
you should have plugged the fan in the same pin port the old fan was in. Usually only 1,.
If the new fan is not from dell..it may be faster and noiser..or it may be faulty..if you bought it locally you may try to return it.
The purpose of the fan of course is to remove the hot air from the CPU to keep it from overheating. If this fan does it it is most likely ok.
Hope this helps..
