About the only thing you can do aside from getting some major service done on the machine is to get a cooling unit for the laptop. I will provide a link for one that is $18 and change at the bottom of my answer here. It works amazingly, and is really the only solution for a laptop that is overheating like yours. Otherwise someone needs to take it apart and diagnose what is causing the heat problem.

Please make sure you rate my answer 4 thumbs up, it is extremely important to me. I would be forever grateful if you could do so. If you need more help on this question please just respond to my answer here and I will get right back to you.

Here is the cooling unit I am referring to:

How to Prevent Laptop Overheating


There are some laptops that get hotter than other laptops. Laptops get hot due to many factors such as capacity of the processor, cooling fans,ventilation, extra items such as modem, video cards. They all produce heat due to which laptop gets hot.

You'll find many examples on the Internet for the laptops which get hot. There are particular laptop models which produce excessive heat. For example, IMB T60,Apple Mac Book Aeros, Compaq 610, Dell D400 etc.

But you don't need to worry now because there are certain methods by which you can stop overheating of your laptop. These methods are discussed below.

Place your laptop on a cool flat surface while working. It will allow the air to enter your laptop. Some laptops have cooling fan underneath and blocking this will make your laptop hot quickly.

Buy a laptop stand from a laptop seller. It lifts your laptop few inches from surface of the table making a reasonable space for air to enter your laptop freely.

Dust your laptop regularly; it will keep your laptop's fan functioning properly for a long period. The fan needs to do an extra work when there is dust inside the laptop. If you dust regularly, the fan will not experience any difficulty.

Shut down your laptop before putting it in the bag. The atmosphere inside the bag may be too hot for your laptop, and it can damage your laptop.

When the battery is full, unplug the charger. People make a common mistake leaving the laptop plugged in. Due to the constant supply of electricity to the laptop will heat its battery as a result it will overheat your laptop.

You can find certain kinds of items in many electronic stores for keeping your laptop cool. Cooling pad is a most common equipment to keep your laptop cool that sits beneath your laptop and is powered on with the help of USB port. It increases the airflow inside the laptop. So, cooling pad is the best you can take to keep your laptop cool and maximize its performance.

Give your laptop a little break if it is getting hot. It can shut down itself to protect any kind of damage due to overheating. This is an indication that your laptop needs a little break.

Do not expose your laptop to the sunlight for a long span of time.

My Acer laptop keeps restarting randomly whenever i use it.


Most likely cause would be overheating due to clogged fan intake/exhaust or failing fan. If you want to tackle yourself Google "disassemble Acer ______ laptop" (insers your model number). You can determine if overheating is likely by carefully blowing some canned air into the fan intake.

My Laptop keeps turning off... It is plugged in, and will work for a few minutes and then just randomly shut off completely...


Hi,

Check your CPU fan, it may be clogged with dust/lint. Many times laptops do that due to overheating. Get a blower or Dust Remover (compressed Air) to clean that out

Laptop getting heated


Hi, you must esure the laptop is used on a flat hard surface, as the air vents are on the side and underneath. Laptops are very prone to overheating due to there contruction and design. If this is not the problem and the overheating continues, your machine will need to be looked at proffessionally.

Laptop keeps turning off why?


This could be due to overheating. If you have ever taken a laptop apart then you will have seen that on most laptops the cooling fan draws in air via a grill and then blows this air around the CPU and exhausts to the outside world again. This air is NOT circulated around the rest of laptop case to dissipate heat.
You can try these steps
1. Check your power chord, socket, UPS, everything that leads from the electrical network to your AC power adaptor, but don't forget to check your BIOS settings and software setup, because it's probably your adapter who's sensing an overload of power drain
2. In most cases, an overheating processor due to a build of internal dust is the cause for random reboots or turn offs.

3. AC power adaptor not able to sustain normal power needs (faulty power adaptor) - take care of the same items as those I mentioned at 1.

4. Especially with older laptops, the battery may overheat, simply due to internal battery fault, or charging levels.

5. If you have a new laptop, be sure to have all ventilation openings free, and when used on a desk, try not to allow full contact with the surface - use a book or two to keep the laptop above the desk and have some space beneath it.

Monitor restarting randomly


Rarely does a monitor go out due to drivers. Try another monitor and verify that it isn't the computer (it isn't). If the power light goes out it is the power supply (usually inside) the monitor. If the light stays on, it will most likely be the backlight power unit. Browse the internet for the model and parts. Newer units are difficult to find.
