try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making sure that there is no moisture in the air line dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat and many other problems
hope this helps good luck

Have you checked if the laptop fan is working? If not then the fan needs replacing.
Has the fan and heatsink assembly been check for clogging dust, if not then cleaned and remove the dust, especially off the heatsink fins.

What are the other ports used for, and can I use them to run the fans?


Do you mean the USB-ports on your laptop? If so, than yes, you will need one free USB-port to connect the Chill Mat to.

My laptop is over heating


Hi! first, i would like to ask if you are using cooling fan? if does, then i'll give you some tips on how to keep your laptop from overheating

1. Turn off your computer and allow it cool down.

2. Work with your laptop on a flat surface. The rubber feet on your laptop are designed to allow airflow to the underside of the computer, so if you are working on a bed or other soft surface, you cut off the airflow. If you do want to work away from a desk or table, try keeping your computer on your lap, exposing the underside to air.

3.Shut down your laptop before placing it in your carrying bag.

4 Give your laptop a bit more lift to increase the airflow under the machine. Two simple, flat rulers placed along the front and back edges of your computer is enough to increase the flow of air and keep your laptop cool.

5 .Unplug your charger as soon as the battery is full. A common mistake people make is leaving their computer plugged in at all times. However, the constant source of electricity will heat your battery and in turn overheat your laptop. Only charge your computer as long as necessary.

Hope this would be helpful.

Thanks for usinf FixYa : )

Targus Chill Mat Fan On Fritz


The fan rotor is stuck due to accumulation of dust. Take out the fan and clean it. Put a few drops of alcohol or lacquer thinner on the rotor/bushing assembly while manually turning its blades to loosen the hardened dirt until the fan freely spins like the good one. If it does not work, replace the defective fan if spare is available.

Chill mat


i have 1 as well and it broke too. this is http://computers.pricegrabber.com/laptop-accessories/m/1754767/

right?

if its the cord's thats broken, its most likely the switch, more specifically the soldering where the wire connects to the switch is prolly broken. i just sawed my switch open w/ a knife, and took a look. now if a wire is loose in the switch, u can either solder it back on, or (in my case i always have the fan on anyway cuz of my **** dell computer overheating) rip the wire off the switch completely and just connected it w/ aluminum foil.
