Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

From a cold start, the notebook heats up to a point where the fan turns on within the first 5-10 minutes (even sitting idle). When I try to do something like download/install software or sync my I phone, if I don't put a fan directly on it, it overheats to the point the notebook shuts off. The entire left side of the keyboard (and especially the underside of the notebook) gets VERY hot! I have checked the battery recalls, and my battery is fine (heat doesn't seem to be coming from the battery). I am not sure a) what the potential problem(s) could be and b) what I should do...Please help me :)

2007 Chevy express overheating


Coolant level? Is water pump working? Is thermostat stuck? Are cooling fans running? Do radiator hoses and heater hoses feel hot? You can either provide this information or take your vehicle to a qualified professional and have it properly diagnosed and repaired.

WHY IS MY HINO 500 TRUCK OVER HEATING ALMOST TO THE RED ZONE AND THE COOLANT LEVEL IS ON THE MAXIMUM?


couple of reasons
have a compression test done to determine head gasket or cracked head
watch closely when the over heating starts and if it cools down
it the temp rises when going slow ( heavy traffic, hard pulling up hills , stop lights -- basically when the road speed is low and there is low/no air through the radiator-- check for a faulty fan clutch or viscous fan hub failure ( spins but doesn't pull air )
check for thermostat failure and not opening if from a cold start it is going to over heat within 5 miles of 10 minutes of idling
check for blocked radiator(internal)cores or radiator fins (external) falling off the cores
The first point of call for me would be the fan drive system

Cooling fan dont work


If you let the bike sit and idle for about ten minutes and the cooling fan doesn't come on, it usually means your radiator fluid is low. The sensor to turn on the fan sits at the top of the radiator. So if it doesn't come on after the bike gets up to heat (this can take a LONG time in cold weather), you need to flush your radiator. Intruder Alert Suzuki Intruder and Boulevard Owners Club

Rough idle stops


I suspect the idle solenoid on the throttle body is faulty, relatively cheap, may pay for you to clean the throttle body while you are there too. Hope this helps, good luck.

I have a hard start problem with a carburated 1988 toyota corolla fx, 1.6 SOHC. When it's cold, it starts right up without me even depressing the accelerator. But once it reaches operating temper


If this is the model with the variable venturi, it has a little green vacum box claped under the air filter box, theyplay up a lot, results in bad starting, bad idle, or stalling.

Hope this helps

I have a 2004 chevy cavalier, 1st problem when stopped at a red light with a/c on the temp. goes up and a/c starts to blow warm air and car runs sluggish. Like it wants to stall. When driving everything...


first problem is simply your radiator cooling fans (there tow of them) are not working my be due to a fuse and/or relay those fans are turning with ac on even if your car is cold and turns when radiator gots hot even if ac is off
so when your car is hot open the hood and just take a look are they running or not they just in front of radiator

Replaced starter now wont pass emmisions electronic brain has not reset put 900miles on it how long before brain resets? could a sensor cause the brain not to reset????


the car needs to be in the right conditions for the "brain" to run the emissions tests, the standard procedure is from a cold start, like after sitting overnight, turn all accessories off, air, radio, heat, etc.. let the car idle for 2-3 minutes, get to a highway and cruise at about 45-55 mph for 5 minutes then slow down to a stop and idle for 2 more minutes with the car in drive still, that should make the car complete the tests required to pass emissions, if that doesn't work i'd try disconnecting the battery and trying again the next day
