Gateway md2614u shut down


I would remove the heatsink and fan, clean the processor surfaces with methylated spirit or isopropanol, use new heatsink compound and that should fix your issue. Yes yes, heatsink pipe should get hot!

Hp pavillion dm4 bell dings and cursor won't work


Has the fan, heatsink, and vents been cleaned? Is it overheating due to in- sufficent air flow? Clean, may have to open to get to the heatsink, improve air flow. A laptop cooler is one option. Overheating will kill computer components. Post results.

My computer shut off by itself even though the battery was charged and the battery light kept blinking even after my computer was off. computer seems hotter than usual on bottom as well


It is probably shutting down to prevent thermal damage dut to overheating. Check that the fan is working. Even if it is, if the vents are clogged with dust the machine will not be able to cool properly. The only real remedy is to open the case, clean all the vents and fan, remove the heatsink, clean off old thermal paste and apply new paste before replacing the heatsink and putting back together.

Toshiba Satellite L500D is shutting down by itself OVERHEATING Clean the fan with compress Air ....> NO GO Need help Please or Any other Suggestion


Disassemble the laptop and remove the heatsink.
Remove all the dried up heatsink goo that's on the heatsink and processor.
Squeeze a small amount of QuickSilver heatsink compound onto the middle of the processor top.
Place the heatsink on the processor and move it in a couple small circles before locking the processor heatsink back in place.
Clean the air vents and cooling fins well while the unit is open.
This should fix any overheating issues you are having (assuming the fan is OK)
If the fan isn't running, replace it.

Hello Norah,

A google search with the Laptop Model and Part number from the Fan/Heatsink is always a good place to start. Also, ebay can turn up some really good deals on laptop parts. Here's a link to a Fan/Heatsink combo I found using a Google search within the shopping section.

Acer 5570Z Fan/Heatsink

Hope this helps and good luck with the repair.

Leave some positive feedback if you found this to be helpful, thank you.

Hello, I have a vgn-s170 laptop that I just installed a new screen and motherboard. the video chip heatsink/fan is not running and the screen does not come on. what can i do


Have you tried connecting it to an external monitor? Are you sure the heatsink fan is not defective? If the screen works on an external monitor you know the video card is good. As long as the cable is plugged into the motherboard to provide power for the heatsink then it's either a bad heatsink fan or the motherboard connector for the heatsink is bad. My money is on the heatsink fan if you can get video from an external monitor.

it could be that
  • you got a virus that corrupted your hard disk or MBR (Master Boot Record)
  • your hard drive is dead
  • or your hard drive is corrupted
Try booting from a system disk (Windows XP CD, recovery CD or system floppy) and let me know what happens.

How do I get the cover off the Sony VAIO FRV26 PC Notebook


to open an FRV26:
the cover at the top of the keyboard must be removed, take a small screwdriver and run it along the lower edge of the cover behind the top row of keys. there will be 4 small slots across the edge. each of these slots has a small latch which must be pushed in to lift the cover.

once the top cover is removed, there will be a small phillips screw visible at the top of the keyboard, remove it and lift the keyboard out of the way.

under the keyboard is an aluminum shield. there are about 10 small phillips screws holding it down, most around the edges, 2 are down in small tubes. once all screws are removed, lift the cover. the fans will be visible.

WARNING: do not loosen the 4 screws around the fan cover housing. if you loosen these and lift the fans out, the main chip will come with them and must be removed from the heatsink to reinstall.
