My Amilo Pi 3540 is shutting down after 20 - 30 minutes. CPU usage looks fine but for no reason it goes up to 60-70 and causing my machine to crash. How do I check if the fan is running correctly or what could cause this. thanks for your advise. Peter

SOURCE: DVD BURNING : TAKES TOO MUCH TIME AND CPU USAGE GOES TO 60%

Based on the laptop model you have listed, I am afraid to say that there is not much that you can do about the time it takes to burn DVDs. Computers often come with re-writeable (RW) drives that have different speeds. Thus, on older laptops or desktops, the drives are very often slow and will take a large amount of time to burn a full DVD. As for the CPU usage, writing data from a hard drive to a DVD or a CD is a very memory and performance heavy task, especially on older computers. You can attempt to free up resources by closing as many non-essential programs as possible prior to burning a DVD... but that will not dramatically increase the speed. Not using the laptop for other purposes while it is burning a disc may also speed up the process.

SOURCE: Crash!!

Could be Heat, sounds like the system is shutting down to protect the processor. Let it sit shut down over night and see if it runs longer when it's cooled down. Is the fan running?

SOURCE: Overheating Dell D600?

Get a can of compressed air for cleaning computers. Turn the laptop over and locate the vents to the fan inside. Blow the compressed gas through the machine to clean out excess dirt and lint. Then turn on the laptop and see if you can observe the fan running. If you can see the fan running you might notice how fast it is running. If it is running slow or not at all then you need to get that replaced.

Overheating amilo


Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

How do you reset cmos on fujitsu amilo pi 3540?


RTM - Read The Manual.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Fujitsu Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Look for manuals.



Sometimes you can take the laptop apart and remove the CMOS Battery.

It will be a silver battery about the size of a nickel on the motherboard. The most common size is CR2032. Also sometimes the battery will be in a vinyl covering and have a cable that attaches to a port on the motherboard. Which ever type you have you'll need to either remove the battery or unplug the cable and let the laptop sit for an hour or two. Then put it back, reassemble the laptop and reboot the laptop. With the CMOS battery out the computer will lose the date, time and password.

Why pc is not shut down after clicking on shut diwn option


There are many things that might cause your PC or any application in your PC like outlook express to run slowly or freeze or even restart at time and then. It could be a fragmented disk, fragmented registry; a virus, Trojan, or spy ware; high CPU and/or utilization due to too many programs running; high disk I/O; caused by an infection.

To check your CPU and memory utilization, run Task Manager. You can start Task Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and then clicking on the Task Manager Button. In Task manager, click on the Performance tab and check CPU Usage and PF Usage. PF Usage is an indicator of memory usage. If one or both of these is high, click on the Processes tab, and sort the columns by CPU or Memory to see what processes are consuming the resource. If you are not sure what the process "Image name" is for, Google the name and you should find what the process is for.

If your CPU and memory usage are reasonable, then you may have a different issue. Even if you running anti-virus software, it may be beneficial to scan your PC with another scanner to check for viruses. No anti-virus software is 100% perfect at catching everything. Here are a few good virus scanners that you can run to check your PC:

So here is the best solution that I can suggest for you is to scan your
PC with a very strong antivirus, here is the link to get it.Its very good.

To clean up registry there is another very good application which will keep your PC registry out of trouble caused from spywares.

I am not really sure if this caused by the fan performance, but I can confirm that my laptop dell inspiron 1420 is very hot after running about 1 hours.. and often my CPU usage reach 100% when I use Vista...


First, I appreciate the details provided in your question. Thanks!
The specification of your laptop are fine and enough to run and support Vista. It is true that greater number of processes and CPU usage causes, but normally the machine can handle it well if it gets proper ventilation.
Laptop heating issue generally occurs due to fan failure, which may damage the system, if not checked properly. Another cause of overheating is the dust present inside the laptop, which clogs the fan and heatsink. I suggest that you should get you laptop checked by a professional for servicing (if required). I believe immediate action is required to prevent any damage to your machine and data.

Hope it Helps! Let me know if i could be of any further assistance.

Acer aspire 5630 laptop keeps shutting down


It sounds like someone has suggested that overheating may have caused the random shutdowns (which is quite plausible). There are a few tools that can diagnose what is happening:
  • Temperature: I use SpeedFan (http://www.filehippo.com/download_speedfan/) to discover the temperature of my cpu. My Acer 5630 is usually doing 50 to 60 degrees. Anything higher than that could cause the random shutdowns (I've seen it happen on other laptops). If you download this program, don't muck around with the settings (as it would advise you not to anyway), just look at the temperature readings (eg. core 1 core 2)
  • I keep a cpu usage meter on my sidebar (http://gallery.live.com/liveItemDetail.aspx?li=587ef54f-e121-418b-b258-e583e105a0d6). It keeps an eye on the CPU usage so if i see it say 100% cpu usage then I suspect some software is inappropriately consuming resources.
Treatment of overheating would be to find the offending software and manage it or remove it. If it is not software at fault, then it may be that there is too much dust covering the ventilation (Your acer may be old and you may hear your fan increasing speed and the performance struggle sometimes). I opened up my one and found dust build up from the radiator all the way to the fan! (it was like around 1cm thick in some places, i wish i took a picture)
Another reason for random shutdowns is the integrity of the power switch or the lid sensor. My computer got rained on once and randomly shut down. It took a while of cleaning it with Circuit board cleaner from Repco (I had to open the panel that covered the power button and spray it). It got better everytime I cleaned it and now it reliably stays on (actually it randomly turns on now haha)
