Lap top gets too hot and shuts downundefined


Almost every laptop will accumulate a big wad of fuzzballs and lintballs that get packed in front of the internal cooling fins for the processor and chipset. This results in overheating and random shutdowns, as is your problem.
Ease of cleaning this out, without disassembly, depends on the design of the laptop's cooling fans and air ducts. I have kept an 8 yr old Toshiba laptop clean inside and running good by using a shop vac wo work 2 ways. I use the vac's exhaust to blow air INTO the slots where the air typically exit's from the laptop.... and use the suction end of the shop vac on the fan openings of the laptop.
You don't want to blow into the fan openings, as this only forces the debris and fuzzball deeper into the cooling fins.
You want to force air the *opposite* way of the laptop's normal airflow, to dislodge the fuzzball.
After vacuum & blowing, the lintball should end up visible by the fan intake openings. You may have to pop the fan screens out if the lintball is too large to come out any other way.

Way to slow down the z5610 acer fan? it runs loud after 2 years.


http://computershopper.com/desktops/reviews/acer-aspire-z5610

A) Needs to be opened up. Needs to be cleaned out inside.

Two years? Bet it looks 'scary dirty' inside. After you have cleaned out the inside, donate the 'Gunk' to local mice. They can use it for a condo. (I would charge them rent)

B) Processor may need old Thermal Paste replaced. Clean top of Processor, and bottom of finned Heatsink, and PROPERLY apply fresh, new Thermal Paste.

Primer:
Air is used to cool the inside of that All-In-One desktop computer. The Processor and graphics chipset, are the two hardware components that give off the most heat.

The finned Heatsink, and Processor Fan, are the two cooling components for the Processor. When they get clogged with 'Gunk' over the years, the cooling capacity drops -> tremendously.

The Processor fan sensor, senses that the Processor is too hot, and speeds the Processor fan up. Also BIOS speeds the computer case fan/s up.

Could also be that the bearings for the fan/s are bad. Replacement fan, or fans are needed.

ONE THING HOWEVER Karl, to work on this All-In-One you need to wear an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip connected to a good ground source.
This is just like working on a LAPTOP computer, NOT a desktop.

Average example,

(And of course unplugged from power)

Need guidance in cleaning, and replacing the Thermal Paste, just post back in a Comment. I will guide you.

Shuts down after 30 seconds


1st step: take out the ram and clean it with an eraser..... blow air over the ram slots and reinsert... it shall work 80% chance.

if that doesn't help then:

your PC might have a cooling problem.....

1 change the position of your PC... a place with high air moisture and high temperature can cause similar problems.

2 check , if your fan is working properly.

3 check the Processor IC thermal compound... a paste which is applied in between the processor and the fan.

Heat related shut downs, dirty fan and heat sink? How to best clean?


Best is to get a compress air duster, you can disassemble your processor fan but be careful not to take it off. If you keep getting heat related shut downs try applying new thermal paste to your processor.

My dell dimension 8250 'Sound Blaster Live' will work for a few minutes, then shuts off. If I wait, it comes back again, etc. What's wrong? Thanks.


Thats your system restarting every small minute then the problem lies on your processor or probably your processor fan that is blowing air to your processor stops working and that can cause it not be ok after a short time it will be over heated and have to cut off and restart again what you will have to do is to change the processor fan or probably add a cooling paste on the processor cooling sink or if that persist change the processor.

Heatsink for Dell Precision T5400


Actually what you need is a Heatsink & Fan for a Intel "Xeon" Processor. I believe some of these came with dual core and quad core CPU's. So make sure as to EXACTLY what type processor you have and look for a heatsink for that.

Or, you can call Dell directly and purchase it from them. Dell sometimes uses Fan tunnels in there machines, instead of directly mounting the fan on the CPU.

I hope this info helps, please rate my solution. Have a great day!

CPU FAN SPEED IN HP Compaq d530 Small Form Factor Desktop PC


The fan/heat sink on these models get plugged with dust very easily, use an air compressor or can of air to blow the dust out of the heat sink and fan. In extreme cases the thermal paste gets dried out and needs to be re-applied to properly cool the processor.

Can I upgrade my Toshiba A105-S4011 CPU processor (solo Core T1300 processor)? What is it compatible to?


if you are looking for performance, you may want to start with the RAM first. It is DDR2 and that laptop is able to go up to a max of 4GB RAM. If that doesn't speed things up, consider getting a 7200RPM hard drive. Laptop processors rather difficult to upgrade. It will require disassembling the laptop completely and theres a good chance that something will be damaged in the process
