Just a thought, but if you don't have your LT on a hard surface so it can breathe, it will overheat and cause the fan to run continuously. My Dell 600LT vents out the bottom left and if this vent is blocked, it will overheat. Good luck.

This issue is normally caused by the CPU heat sink vents becoming clogged with dust and debris. To clean the heat exchanger, use a can of compressed air to blow in the air intake and exhaust vents to try and dislodge the dust and dirt. You need to alternate blowing in the intake then the exhaust multiple times until no more dust is evident (May take 10 or 15 times) then blow the vents out about once a month.

Also, avoid using the system on any soft surface, always use a hard flat surface. If used on a rug, bed, quilt, sofa, lap etc, the vents can be blocked restricting airflow, again causing the fan to race all the time.

If this fails to resolve, then the heatsink and/or the fan may need to be replaced

Will not stop running


Are you referring to the compressor not shutting off down below or the evaporator fan inside the cooling area not shutting off? Evaporator fan always runs the compressor is controlled by the thermostat you could have a bad thermostat if the compressor never shuts off.

I have a Dell inspiron 1525...I have found that now, after a year and half the fan has become loud and noise. So noise, I wake up in the middle of the night, hearing my computer cooling b/c the fan is so...


you need to buy a new fan, your fan is about to give up the ghost. if you let the fan die while the pc is running, it might burn out the cpu.

fans are very cheap, like a few dollars, and do not always last forever.

Projector heating up and bulb shuts down


The ambient temperature in the room is to high.
Try lowering the room temperature. If that doesn't work
get a small fan and place it near the projector to provide
extra cooling. The projector is running border line on
high temperature and just needs a little extra cooling.

Does the fan always run


Cooling fans only run when the temp,of the coolant get to about 215 to 218 degrees,and shut them selves off,when the engine cools down,if they do not cut off,the engine is not cooling down,now,if the ac is on,the cooling fans will stay on until the ac is shut off.

Window shut down when scanning.


That is mainly caused by your laptop CPU heat too hot. Just clean the CPU fan and dip some lubricant oil into the CPU fan. Then buy a laptop cooling stand.

My laptop computer shut down when run for 5 minutes or so. Do you think is the cooling fan?


It could very well be.

Does it feel hot?

Does it last longer when you boot it up for the first time?

Dell PE1800 psu wont swith off...Computer powers down but psu fan continues to run. Have to pull the power plug to shut it down.


Sounds like the PSU is overheating. Some PSU's are designed to keep the fan running to cool it down even after system shut down. I would let the fan run after shutdown to see how long it takes to shut itself off. If there are no environmental issues tat are causing overheating you might want to consider replacing the PSU.
