Hello

OK, with laptops, yes, but if i may suggest something.

I would suggest that you have a look at the fan unit i n the heat sink first. Is is more probable that the fan is dusty, like in the picture below.
I usually just use compressed air to clean it, if the problem still persists after you have done this, you can have a look at the thermal paste.

Let me know if you have any further question or need assistance.

Kind regards

In case you dissasembly the CPU from the cooler maybe it's an issue. Do you mean that you didn't put any paste at all ?

I have recently replaced the bezel and LCD cover of my Dell 1737 laptop. Upon turning ing it on, however, the fan spins very fast and of course is very loud. I was wondering if anyone may help me...


its normal for fan to turn really fast during start-up but if it stays that way means, your unit is very hot and the system is continuously trying to cool it down. open the bottom cover and clean the vent this might fix the issue apply thermal paste of high quality if you have some. it can greatly reduce temp up to 5 degree instantly. as to your question whether its fan or heatsink problem, i assume it is fan. heatsink is passive and less likely to have problem

This sounds like it could be an overheating issue. Some manufacturers use a cheap thermal paste on their processors. If you are dealing with a computer this should be an easy fix but if you are dealing with a laptop then it is much more involved. Go to Youtube and research replacing or removing heat sink. You wont be replacing the heat sink but the procedure is the same except you will need to clean the old paste off your heat sink before you apply more. Don't go crazy with the paste, a little goes a long way, all you are doing with the thermal paste is ensuring full contact between the processor and the heat sink with no air gaps.

In thermal my system fan speed has a red dot what does this mean


I believe this means you need to upgrade your CPU cooler fan!Usually it would react this way when a thermal event is takin place.In which case,your PC is getting bad thermal readings,so make sure you have proper air flow in the computer as it may be the reason for your thermal issues.Otherwise you would have to manually remove your CPU,remove the current thermal paste and apply new thermal paste carefully in the designated area specified by the manufacturer!-Hope this helps!!!-CB

IBM x3400 server hanging / chipset & processor heating, but cooling fans are working properly.


Hi,
Make sure that the fans are working at proper speed (not stuck or slow).
Secondly, heat sink could be clogged due to dust or not properly seated. Clean it if required. You may remove it, clean its fins and replace it back (for both processors if required) . Don't forget to apply THERMAL PASTE between the heat sink and the processor (If you remove the heat sink). The Thermal paste conduct the heat from the processor to heat sink which is then dissipated into air by the processor fan. You may also consider adding an additional fan, if required.

Also, place the PC at a well ventilated location so that the cool air enters it from the front and warm air leaves from the back.

The computer shuts down after 10 to 30 min..I have already change the fan.


When computers shut down like this they are getting the signal from the motherboard. This is most likely a thermal shutdown signal from the processor. When you changed the fan, did you clean the processor off and apply a small thin layer of thermal paste? The processor may not be cooling properly or the motherboard is getting a bad signal from the processor's thermal circuit. Try new thermal paste on the processor and then go through the board again and make sure everything is in its place. Also, leave the side panel off and see if the system stays running, this will aid in the cooling. Let us know if it works, if not we may have more ideas to help.

Toshiba P35-S611 wont power on! When i plug it in no led lights come on, i get nothing out of it. the led on the battery charger lights up but nothing on the computer, someone said maybe the motherboard? ...


yeah if you are planing to do it yourself..it is worth ..I just bought last week a broke one and I payed something under 100$ ..and I changed the motherboard in one that was doing the same..so ...if you think you will use it ..its worth looking on ebay ..or parts to buy what is missing
Anyway check the power line on the motherboard ..it may be just something unplugged..or a little part..but if it does not get any power..its just that ..
The fact that is charging the battery it means that the power is ok from the charger and the entry on the board...so check the ram memory ..and the power cable of the board...cause if the charging is ok ..and the fan is working ..it may be something like a cable or the switch itself..( in this case the switch board is changeable in a few minutes and has just a plug and 2 screws..

Aspire 1694WLMi starts for a few seconds and then crashes


Could be battery issue or most probably heat issue. Check that the fans are working properly. Maybe sometimes it stays longer because there's sufficient ventilation or it's colder outside.

Try removing the battery, then plug in power to the notebook. Try using it without the battery. See if it stays on.... just don't touch any parts exposed!

Overheating


The overheating fan is not controlled by a software, there are three reasons why your fan overheats. First in the hard drive, your fan is not connected properly. Second you need thermal paste to keep the metal part of the fan to stick to the CPU to cool it down. The last thing is that the fan could be dusty and not running as usual.

My comuter won't start up properly. It stays blank right before the log in screen at start up. It shuts down automatically when I play certain video games.


Ok this could be a CPU Issue, after a while the thermo paste on the heatsink which is on the CPU under the fan the paste will dry out and when it does the cpu once starts working under load due to the games being played will shut down to protect itself and the board.

What you need to do or get someone to do it for you take out the Heatsink reapply thermo paste on top of the CPU (by the way thats what I call it) may be known in your region as Thermal grease (also called thermal compound, heat paste, heat transfer compound, thermal paste, or heat sink compound. If you need more help let me know

Spud
