Your heatsink fan radiator might be clogged with dust, or the fan could be failing, but not death yet. Look through the the side of the opening where the hot air is coming from and see if it is dirty, if so go to any store and buy Compressed air and blow the dust away. The Ideal way to go about it is by opening the Laptop case and blow air from the Fan out to the opening to push the dust out of the system.
In some laptops the manufacturer has released some Bios updates to correct issues related to how the system controls de fan speed for best performance. You might want to check their website for any possible updates. Your Brand and Model Number would help anyone to provide you with a more accurate answer

yes,/no, if engine is hot, and AF LEVELS ARE FULL
did you scan the pcm for hvac errors (DTC)
Then this is a HVAC failure.

Cooling fan is not working,fan it self is working but when temperature is high it should on automatically

I assume you have checked the fan when you say ITSELF IS WORKING but it does not come on automatically at a high temperature. Check the temperature sensor by shorting across the wires. If the fan doesn't come on then I would suggest the problem is the sensor. If the fan does come on then maybe the sensor is the wrong one.

it is normal that your system will shutdown when a certain increase of temperature will reach the maximum it can hold. this is to protect your system or hardwares from being tossed. but to reach this high temp is something you have to do with. I suggest take to shop for proper replacement of thermal paste and for some maintenance like cleaning fans. hope it didn't yet affect the SB or NB chips.

Temp limits for fan operation 2001 golf

run fault codes to check for coolant temperature sensor that controls the fan operation and the fan relay . Check both fan fuses . Check that the fan spins freely. Temp range for the fan operation is around 80 degrees C turn on and runs until coolant temperature is well below this

Replaced heatsink and cpu temperature sensor is incorrectly high

When it crashes, does it happen at the same spot? Does it get into the OS or are you looking at a hardware monitor in the BIOS to get your temp. Was the heatsink replaced because it was doing the same thing before? I'm not sure overheating is the cause since 158F is only 70C and that's not hot enough to cause a shutdown. T-Max on the almost all CPUs is 100C.

Runs hot cooling fan doesnot cut on

there is another coolant temp sensor that is a normally open switch. It closes when it reaches a certain temp and turns the fan on. If you are not getting 12 volts at your fan motor and your fuse is good for this circuit than you have a bad "automatic switch". that will need to be replaced

Well i have a problem the fridge is working 100% but our freezer is not working right it is cold at bottom half but it is not working at top half like i put ice thing in it the water fast freeze tomoro...

If I read the manual right the red light indicator your seeing is the exlamation point above the fast freeze button. This is telling you that the freezer compartment temp is to high.

There can be multiple reasons for this:
1. Evaporator fan not running (Check fan by depressing door closed plunger for the light switch) The fan should be on and light off.

2. An unseen block of ice over the evaporator coils due to an automatic defrosting probelm. If you can determine that there really is ice on the evaporator coils, perform the manual defrost procedures I described in my initial response. If after doing this manual defrost things return to normal for a few days and then you see the high temp indicator again there is for sure and automatic defrosting problem.

3. Automatic Defrost Problem (Causes)
a. Defrost control failure
b. Defrost control heating element failure
c. Temp sensor failure or Bi-metal 60 Deg F thermostat failure

4. Condenser fan not running in the borrom rear of the unit. (Check to see that the fan is running by removing the fiberboard rear cover.)

5. Condenser coils blocked with lint (Check the coils when you inspect the condensor fan for operation.) Clean both the coils and the fan.

6. Thermistor failure (measures temp and has a resistive output) in the freezer.

7. Compressor not running (Causes)
a. PTC relay
b. Run capacitor
c. Conpressor failure

8. Compressor running but not cooling
Check to see that one of the copper lines line is hot to the touch. If it is not hot the causes can be low freon level, clogged freon drier, damaged capillary tube.

These are all the things that can cause your current symptom.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Chip fan failure... seems, the board does not start until the temp is cool . does this board protect the chip by not startingis the chip is too hot?

Does the fan still spin when it does power on? The protective measure of the board is that when the chip is too hot it will still power on but only for a second, then it will turn off with a beeping sound. If you suspect that the chip is too hot you might want to measure the temp. One other thing you could do is to reseat the Heat Sink and Fan assembly and make sure there is ample thermal paste.

Lenovo Y410 laptop is getting hot and shutdown automatically.

When systems power off suddenly, always suspect - the power first. I would then look at heat and physical connections next as culprits. Memory errors almost always show up as blue screens.
I say try a new power supply and see what it does. Its not a lot of money either way.

Run CPUID Hardware Monitor and watch your temps. You will have to turn logging on or you will lose the data in a crash.
Make sure your CPU heatsink is still connected properly. Things have a way of working loose.

Tempature gauge goes to high with full coolant.

if no codes a few choices to problem could be fan not working properly/thermostat stuck closed or broke/water pump failure/radiator clogged-outside blocked/bad sensor(usually pops a code)these are the most common good luck
