Computer technology moves quickly, with laptops having become faster and capable of doing a lot more over the last few years.
The main problem with running powerful components is that they build up a lot of heat that needs to be dispersed.
Due to the compact design of most laptops, heat buildup can be a problem that often leads to system crashes or even worse, damage to the machine.
It is therefore important to maintain your laptop so that it can efficiently cool itself.

Adjust your Windows Power Management setting to "Portable/Laptop."
This can be found in the Control Panel under "Power Options."
Turn off your laptop and clean the fan vents with compressed air.
The vents can be found on the bottom, sides or back of your laptop, depending on the model.
Raise your laptop to keep air flowing underneath.
You can buy a commercial pad to do this, but propping up your machine with household items by an inch achieves a similar effect.
Keep your laptop in a cool environment when it is in use.
An air-conditioned room is ideal, but if this is not possible, avoid exposing your laptop to unnecessary heat sources, such as direct sunlight.
Shut down your laptop when it is not in use.

Overheating


Like all computers and laptops, the electronic components within your HP G60 generate heat during operation.


Due to the cramped nature of laptop cases, this heat can build up quickly, resulting in possible operational and functionality problems with your G60.


Although there is little you can do to reduce the amount of heat the G60 produces as you use it, there are measures that will help prevent overheating and the subsequent damage it can do to your system.


Symptoms


When your G60 overheats, it exposes the delicate internal electronics to higher temperatures than are considered safe by the manufacturer.


Prolonged exposure to high temperatures could cause your components, circuit boards and wires to warp or even melt, as well as increase the number and frequency of system crashes and freezes.


Your G60 eventually will shutdown automatically and without warning to allow the heat inside to dissipate and prevent damage to your system.


Cooling System


Nestled inside your G60 near the component that generates the most heat, the central processing unit (or CPU), are a small fan and heat sink.


These help whisk away the heat as it's produced by passing it out of the laptop through three air vents located on the underside of the laptop.


A fourth air vent, for pulling air into the machine, sits on the back of the laptop, below the LCD monitor hinge.

Thorough Cleaning


Hair, lint and dust are all small enough to slip through or collect on the air vents, to clog the fan, heat sink and other openings.


This collection of dirt and debris greatly impacts the effectiveness of the heat dissipation of your G60 and allows the heat to build.


Use compressed air to clear the debris and dust or have a professional laptop cleaning technician thoroughly clean your laptop to encourage proper airflow.

Stay Cool


External factors can also play a role in your G60 overheating, such as placing your laptop near a heater or fireplace.


Using the machine on a soft surface such as a bedspread or pillow blocks the air vents, preventing the G60's internal fan from moving the heat inside the laptop out.


Stay away from hot environments and use your laptop only on solid surfaces.


Laptop cooling stands can provide extra help to your G60's built-in cooling system by providing an additional fan or two in a sturdy stand.

Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.



Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards


The fans in your Hewlett Packard laptop computer are important to keeping its processor from overheating and frying.


Over time, dust builds up within the blades of the fan and the copper heat sinks that distribute the air.


This causes the the computer to heat even faster.


To keep this from happening, clean the fans in your laptop regularly so they will cool it down faster.


Don't wipe away the dust with your own hands.


Use a cotton tip or air to remove it.

Unplug the laptop.


Disconnect its AC connector. Remove the battery.

This prevents any electric shocks while working on the computer.


Turn the computer upside down. Unscrew and remove the computer's RAM cover.

That makes sure it isn't in the way.


This is located behind the battery crevice.

Remember each screw and where it was located, then store the screws somewhere safe.


Remove the main plastic cover over the vents.

Remove the ducts and covers that are on the laptop's two fans.


These are the metal covers over the wide cylinder surrounding the fans, and they are held in place by very tiny screws.


You need a number one size screwdriver.

Remove the screws very carefully so as not to lose them, especially anywhere within the laptop's interior.


Wipe or blow away all dust collected on the fan blades and the fan's copper heat sinks. Compressed air will work best as long as you don't send the dust anywhere else within the laptop's interior.


If you don't have a compressed air blower, wipe away the dust with a cotton swab.


Place and screw the ducts and covers back on the fans.

Re-attach all covers on the laptop and connect the battery.


Check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease

Acer Aspire 4930 heats up very quickly


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 latop fan is not working ?


Laptop fans wear out and stop working. Do not use your system without the fan working. Heat is the largest problem for computers. Heat will quickly shorten the life of your computer. You can get a fan from Tiger Direct for a reason cost. If you are handy with computers you can replace it yourself, if not then you will need to take it to a shop for repair. Good luck.

kevin,
Is this the pink sony vaio? Looks familiar . . .
The problem with this model of sony vaio is the fan that's why it keeps on shutting down after a few minutes. If you notice there is no activity on the internal fan. The internal fan and heat sink is on the same module.I have already replaced the fan on one of this models and its now working just fine.
just look for a spare fan on ebay . . .
hope this helps . . .

Overheating


Overheating is a big issue with Gateway. It mostly involves problems with the fan. When Gateway receives a warranty fan problem they replace it with a fan that is reconditioned or rebuilt (probably from another cutomer's unit like yours) and they don't seem to last long. To make sure it is a fan problem, which is the most common, Turn on the laptop and wait to see if the fan is turning on. It won't take long, processors get hot quick. The fan should turn on and run anywhere from 3 to 15 seconds then turn off. It should do this approx every 5 to 7 minutes in order to keep the processor cool. If it doesn't work at all, works seeming sporadically, or the processor gets really hot before the fan starts, then it's a fan problem, and a NEW fan should be purchased. If the fan works properly, then it could be that the fan and heat sink need to be cleaned internally due to dust build up.
