The over heating depends on the usage and type of applications running in the Computer. You can clean the Air vents of the Computer to avoid the Over heating. Also, change the Power schemes of the Computer from Control Panel in Power Options

Your machine is rebooting itself while you watch a movie on it? Could be a couple of things. First, is this a laptop or desktop? When is the last time you updated your video drivers? If this is a laptop, does it get very hot just before rebooting?

Theories work like so:
1. older video drivers can be causing a cpu panic condition due to a bug. This is more common with PC games vs. watching movies, but still possible. Updating your video drivers may help fix the problem if that's the cause.
2. heat: if the computer overheats, it will reboot to protect itself. As for why it's getting hot--could be that your video hardware or cpu is getting too hot playing the movie. Could be that your cooling fans are bad. This is why I asked about the machine getting hot.

Another possibility is the need to update either your BIOS or hardware drivers.

Please post more info if you require additional help.

I have a presario cq56 notebook laptop, the laptop is working, but the fan does not seem to be. feels hot, but not extremely. when surfing the web, everything runs slow. please help!!!!!


Now a days laptop's FAN are automatic , if the laptop is extreme heat or when ever there is work load on your laptop processor like while playing games, or watching movies etc than only your laptop fan moves.

i feel your laptop might be infected with virus ... just scan with updated antivirus.

Radiator Fan continuously running with engine off, discharging battery


It is not the fault: for long time Renault has that concept, that is to prevent engine oveheating when coolant circulation is suddenly stopped.

Radiator fan can continue to work up to 10 minutes after engine is off. You should worry about it only if it wouldn't stop even after 10 minutes.

Issue: Computer sluggish, then files missing


Problems on the main board could be causing these troubles since it's common to everything else. You might also have memory problems. You could have a bad hard drive, which would account for lost or corrupted files and very long read times while Windows tries to get good data. Because of its connection to the system board, hard drive troubles can show up as other symptoms as well. My first suggestion would be to try another hard drive, then memory.
