Hello,

Turn the unit on its back, so that when it is closed the LCD backcover is facing on the table. You'll see a smaller coverer that can be removed from the actual bottom cover. Make sure you remove the battery first then all necessary screws. Lift up the cover gently, then blow out using compressed air can. Reinstall cover and tighten with screws.

Also make sure you apply new heat sink paste to the CPU. Also make sure that the CPU Heat sink fan actually turns and is not clogged up or has bearings broken.

The older laptops like this one are easier to clean than the 6952 for example.

My computer will keep cutting off it mainly do it when im on netflix i thinking it got somethin to do with my shockwave


Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

Tip

Laptop over heating


To reduce the effect of the heat in a laptop, a fan and heat exchanging grill are attached to the CPU. The fan pulls air into the laptop from the bottom and blows it out the back. This produces a vacuum under the laptop and draws dust into the laptop which can clog the fins of the heat exchanger. After a while, usually just as the warranty runs out, it will start shutting down, locking up or any number of other things that are not good. A really good cleaning of the fan and fins are required.

TIP: Blow the dust from the fan and fins. To reduce the dust collection, Tape a coffee filter over the fan opening on bottom of the laptop. This will reduce the dust and can be easily changed when needed, and it's cheap.

Dear Umashankar Ji,
Don't worry this is not a problem.
This is due to overheating of processor just like we have a radiator in our Cars.
Fan starts when the car is heated up. same case with the processors and their fans.
so dont worry.
Thankyou

When the fan over heats it just shut down unexpectidly is it best just to buy a new fan or is there a way to solve this?


As you use your laptop, the CPU gets warm and the fan kicks in. If the CPU gets too hot, it will shut down as you have found.

Usually, the ventilation slots near to the CPU and CPU fan get clogged with fluff and dust. You need to clear this out.

Disconnect all power sources, turn the laptop upside down and remove any plate/covers that are easy to access.

Carefully blow/clear out any dust and fluff you can see, also try blowing into the ventilator slots. With luck this should clean it out well enough to keep your laptop running.

If not, you're getting into a dimantle scenario, taking more or less the whole thing apart and will neet CPU heat dispersal grease to re-assemble when clean.

My T20 starts up and after a five minutes it shuts off like it was overheated


If you cpu fan is running then it is most likely overheating. Dust gets into the cooling fan and heat sink assembly reducing their ability to keep the cpu cool. You can try blowing compressed air but the best solution is to disassemble and clean it by hand.
