Why is my dell precision m4400 notebook t9600 overheating?

More likely whatever you used to "paste" the heatsinks back on the gpu and cpu aren't conducting the heat properly. There is special paste specifically to make the thermal connection, available at your local computer store.
Also, check that the air passages are free of "dust bunnies", blocked air flow will surely heat your system up.

Computer CPU/Processor maxed 100%

Is your computer experiencing a CPU that is running at 100% Is your computer experiencing slow performance?

You can view your CPU utilization and other performance stats using Windows Task Manager. Press Ctrl + Alt + Delete and bring up Task Manager. Go to the performance tab.


The top of this screen should show your CPU stats.

In Linux you can use the TOP command,
Type the top command:
$ top

A CPU that is running at 100% utilization is not necessarily a problem. When the computer is booting up, or coming out of sleep mode, it may max out the CPU which is normal. The CPU will be utilized fully in order to bring the computer up as fast as possible. Some computers will even utilize the CPU while it is idle, to complete background task such as disk cleanup and file reallocation.

A problem will occur if the CPU stays maxed out. If it stays at 100% for more than a couple of minutes, you may be experiencing degraded computer performance.

Steps to reduce performance degradation.

-In a limited number of cases, software bugs can cause CPU utilization to spike. You will know this is the case if you are using a computer program(that is not hardware intensive like photo/video editors) and notice degraded computer performance. Check your CPU stats while running the program. If this is the case, check online for solutions and possible upgrades which resolve bugs in the software.

-You can reduce Windows start up programs, which will speed up the boot/wakeup process. You can do this from the MSCONFIG window. Go to Start > and in the run box type "msconfig". Go to the "startup" tab and you can uncheck which programs you do not want to start with Windows.

-A majority of the time a computer will get to a point were the hardware will need to be upgraded in order to handle the work you are doing. Common computer upgrades are memory, cpu, motherboard and hard drive.

Won't start but CPU fan vibrates but will not go full blast. Intermittant

It appears you have a faulty CPU fan and it is causing the CPU to overheat and shut down.
I suggest you replace the CPU fan. remove any dust from the heatsink and put new heatsink compound on the CPU/heatsink.

HP P4SD, its running good with 4 gb RAM, P4 3.0ghz, and a couple sata hd. The problem is the fan output voltage, i havent been able to read the output chassis and cpu cooler pins voltage cause i can find...

"i can find my dmm?" did you mean CAN'T?
"its clearly off", what is off?
the fans are 3 pins,2 are power, one is RPM tachometer.
"it all works fine", so you can boot and run any OS, ?

"the voltage reads +12vdc", where, at fan or PSU?
the fans run off 12vdc, they are DC motors (from outside fan)
if the fan runs slow at 12vdc the the fan is bad or is a low RPM
fan, as some are, bigger fans run slow, for less noise.!

first is the CPU fan it must run full speed, if not the CPU will overheat in seconds and ALL CPU shut them selves (by there selves) this way. so CPU fan is first. what does it do... there....?

then BIOS screens. GOT BIOS UP? and running? with, ESC key pressed>.
let me guess your symptoms
1: PC dead. will not boot.
2: BIOS dead.
3: all fans DEAD,.
4: power switch works and all PSU voltages read right, (seems not)/?
5: if the PSU power wire reads right(DMM), matching the side sticker voltages, and the CPU is dead, the MOBO is dead, or CPU is toasted.

here is a modern PSU, sticker.
see 5 to 10 power lines, see them. all must read correctly
if a fan is dead, then its dead if 12vdc is present on the fan power pins.

My parents computer (SR1830NX) is running very slowly, so i decided to check out it's specifications. According to AMD the Processor installed (athlon 64 3500+) should be a dual-core, running at...

first off , you are doing all that wrong.
(baring heat sink removal and reading top of chip.!!.. with eyeballs.
or run program CPUz (google it, it actully scans the CPU to see what comes back (all CPS do that, maker, model, speed, cores, even DIE revison levels.)

go to and put in your full tag number
and look it up, easy model PC comes is vast different sub models.
mine has over 10 processors, as an options I-5 up.

Even a DV5 has 50 or more sub models not counting the US mark in the end for USA.
facts. HP has 1000s of lap tops, and DT.
"I cant change values", my guess is you want to change, the BIOS settings That HP blocks so you dont burn up your parents CPU?

now lets address slow
1: virus infected
2: :not upgrading to SSD drive, vastly slow if not upgraded !!
most LT etc are all slow, back before SSD.
all are. like that. what does yours have, scan that too, easy

How to resolve a CPU 97% full problem?

Do you really mean CPU full? Where are you seeing this? In task manager?

If you mean hard drive, rather than CPU, then you need to delete some data files or buy a bigger drive.

The CPU capacity is used when the device is actually processing, so if you are seeing 97% usage when you are not performing and tasks then you have a rogue program or a virus.

Post here again if you would like me to provide diagnostic help.

Win dvd flikkers while playing a DVD in full screen when my laptop is on battery power. What is wrong??

On battery power, to extend the life of the battery, the CPU slows down, and comes less power per minute.

It's slowed down _too_ much -- it cannot keep-up with the demands of decoding/playing the DVD.

Within "Control Panel", change the "Power" settings, to give the CPU more power (and thus more speed) on "battery" mode.

Or, just connect the AC adapter, and the CPU will run at full speed.

E-System laptop with slow dvd playback

This can be a bit of a tricky one to figure out. My initial response would be that you have another program or process that is causing your computer to play 'choppy' video. When you have a newer computer that was recently working just fine and now all of the sudden the video is choppy, it is usually due to another process using CPU cycles that are so important to video playback.

Start playing a DVD, but don't go to full-screen mode. Open the Task Manager. Right-Click on the task bar and select Task Manager. Click on the 'Processes' tab. There is a column labeled CPU, click on the heading 'CPU' twice. This will order the processes in order from highest CPU usage to lowest. The top two processes will most likely be your DVD player and the process that is causing your choppy playback.If the offending process isn't essential (i.e. anti-virus), then click on said process and then click the "End Process" button.

Hope this helps.
