This is most likely caused by the CPU overheating. Try blowing compressed air through the vents and fans. It is best if it is disassembled and the fan and heatsink are cleaned.

I have HPG60 with AMD Turion X2. During viewing of DVD movies or movies stored in C the battery and its compartment gets heatedup after say 20 minutes or so . the same thin happens during video chat


You may have a faulty battery or a CPU fan problem.
When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith 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 surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

My Tohsiba Sattilite keeps turning off too AND I play something like Settlers6 then it just turns off i think Toshiba has a problem with their computers and my computer is quite fast and sometimes i hear...


This could be a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

KEEPS GOIN OFF AFTER THE FAN MAKE NOISES, SHUTTS OFF VERY OFTEN AND GETS VERY HOT


Need the make & model & O.S. to help you. You can install this software any way to control the fan. Set the fan to always on and see if it cools down. If the fan is noisy it should be replaced and clean inside of laptop. Dust will clog fan and overheat laptop. Over heat causing the shut down condition. This is a great toll to keep Dell laptop's cool. Let me know if it works.

Compac Presario F700 makes constant humming noise


Sounds like its the fan . The more demand you place on the system makes it run hotter so the fan speed automatically increases to compensate

Noisy fan after a few minutes start up


Yeah. i had this problem too. the fan is noisy because it is garbage. it needs to be replaced if you want to get rid of the noice. you moving the laptop wen the noise first started is just coincidence. the heatsink is fine, but the fan itself is poorly made. The ball bearings get loose and so the fan doesnt stay in its vertical plane and it kind of shakes a little, thats why it makes the noise. if you open it up and turn your laptop on, and wait for the noise, you will notice that if you push down lightly on the center of the fan, the noise goes away, because you are creating pressure at it's center of gravity point which makes it stop wobbling. you wont see the wobbling with the naked eye, because its much to slight to see, but its definatly enough to make that annoying fighter jet take-off noise..

as far as the noise, thats the sound it makes when something is wrong with the battery (if you ever drain it all the way down and try to boot it, it will make the noise) kind of messed up noise in my opinion, but its not a big deal, as long as it doesnt repeat. 

for the fan, you dont need to replace it if you dont use your laptop a lot, you can try to keep your laptop cooler to keep the fan from turning on also. i suggest one of those USB fan pads that you put under the laptop, or a thermal pad, thermapak makes one for $30 i think, and it drops temps by 6 degrees celcius they claim, i dont know exact numbers but if def helped me. you can also try to put something in the back to keep the back elevated (where all the heat is) and the fan wont spin as much.

i know with desktop fans that get lots of use, noise is the 1st sign of fan failure to come, but ive been using my laptop with that god awful noise for about 4months now, and its still alive and kicking.

good luck!
