If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

If none of this solves the problem, or is not the case, then you might have a bad motherboard.

Compaq presario CQ40 is overheating within 30 minutes. Although cooling fan is working (fan sound is coming)


Laptop needs cleaning! Only experienced technician should open laptop, clean cooler and change thermal paste. This will solve the problem and save laptop from serious damage.

I have a problem with my compaq presario cq60 due to overheating atimes the laptop turns off automatically when it gets too hot with is the problem


check the underneath of the laptop, there should be several access panels, remove these and look for fans, clear them of any dust you can see, the main fan should be blowing through a heatsink (lots of small fins) try to get to the part between the fan and heatsink as sometimes you can get a lot of dust build up there.

I have a compaq presario that seems to get too hot and cause problems. The fan is also quite noisy. Do you think it needs a new fan?


There is nothing wrong with the fan. Please go to a computer technician and check the coolant inside which require to maintain the temperature. Over the period it gets evaporated/dried up. Also make sure the air vents are clean and th computer is used in a place where there is sufficient air flow.

My compaq presario C700 model #C765TU easily gets hot and is crashing


Make sure that there is no dust in the Fans of teh unit. The Compaq's are famous for overheats.

Download a program called SpeedFan available from

www.almico.com/speedfan.php

once you donwload the file install it, it will put the computer's temp in your system tray by the clock

Try and watch the temp and see what its at when the computer shuts down.

If it is an older unit your processor will most likley need to have heat paste applied to the processor.

You can call your local repair shop, some will do it for about 25.00... Make sure that when you use the machine that you provide enough room for the fans to breath, do not set the laptop on a couch, or bed where the heat cannot escape.

Also check to see that the fans on the bottom of the machine are running. they sometimes fail, however you should receive notification of this on the POST when your computer starts.

Hope this helps

Compaq Presario 3000 incredibly slow firing up, opening up anything. Loud fan all the time too


This advice relates to the Compaq Presario 3000 Notebook series but may also apply to other notebook computers as well.

The heat sink and fan assembly is probably clogged with dust and airborne particles. The clogged cooling parts can lead to heat problems with the CPU. When the system (CPU) gets to hot, the fan has to kick into high gear to try to cool things down. Once you remove dust and debre from the heat sink fins and fan, you will immediately experience better cooling and less fan usage. Your system may also be set for dynamic switching of CPU speed. If you CPU gets too hot, the system will reduce clock speed and ramp up fan and everything will slow way down. Use a good system monitoring software such as Notebook Hardware Control to monitor your CPU temperature, HDD temp and so forth. When the system starts getting too hot, first look at clogged heat sink fins as possible culprit. If you're good at electronics you may be able to service the unit yourself. Get a copy of the system's Maintenance and Service Manual or have a professional do the job for you as you will have to partially disassemble the computer to clean out the heat sink. Depending on the system, the job can take as little as 15-20 minutes once you become proficient at it.

My presario c700 has started to switch itself off


try using a can of air to blow out the fan and heatsink area of the laptop, it could be full of dust, hair, and other items that can slow down the transfer of heat to outside the laptop. Is it very hot when it shuts off like that?

My Compaq Presario 1700 laptop gets hot and shuts off.


In most cases it is cause by the fan not supplying enough air.The first trouble shooting step is to verify if the fan is working properly.

Fan


Check to see if the fan is running after it heats up. Processors get hot quick, so it shouldn't take long for the fan to start. If it's not working take it out and clean it. I've had fans that have stopped because of a hair wound in them. If it still doesn't work replace it before you do serious damage.

Presario 2200 CPU fan appears to be dodgy


Not really, since the fan is controlled ny a thermal sensor on the Motherboard. You may want to start by having the fan and heatsink assembly replaced.
