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.

Follow these steps hopefully it will help you
- Minimize the use of background tasks such as defragmentation and virus scans
- Always place your laptop on a hard flat surface.
- Never leave operating laptop with closed lid. This always generates heat inside laptop
- Use a cooling fan near the heating area or use laptop at reasonable room temperature
After that get the Intel software partner Reginout to fix all the registry issues and hidden files that load on your system.
Best of luck

Tmobile mytouch Q 4G Slide....running very slow not letting pull up dial pad battery running hot and running out fast freezing up internet not working alot needing to restart the phone all the time

  • Close unused programs by accessing the Task Manager on the device. According to, Windows Mobile devices use a feature called "Smart Minimize." This software simply minimizes a program when you think you might have closed it. Thus, the device becomes slow because too many programs are running. Closing out programs via the device Task Manager should be completed daily.
  • 2Clear the temporary files from the device. Storage on a Windows Mobile device is at a minimum, and it's important to keep the phone cleared of any unnecessary data, such as temporary Internet files. To complete this task go to Internet Explorer and access "Menu," "Tools" "Options" and finally "Memory"; delete the files here.
  • 3Avoid overloading the device with unwanted programs. Programs take up storage space on your device. By taking caution when downloading programs and removing unwanted programs, you will minimize the amount of storage taken up. This will reduce the slowness of the Windows Mobile device.

    How to exit the net browser on HTC Smart

    You might not be able to. Some HTC phones will only minimize an applications so that it continues to run in the background. I assume this phone is running either WinMO or Android. To the marketplace and download a task manager application that will allow you to close instead of just minimize running applications.

    Does the exhaunst fan turn on automatically when we cook or warm food items in our Samsung Microwave -- SMH 9187W?

    Some interesting reading on page 8 of the owner's manual:

    "Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite and spread if the vent fan is operating.To minimize automatic fan operation, use adequate sized cookware and use high heat on surface units only when necessary."

    And on page 20:

    "If the temperature becomes too hot around the microwave oven, the fan in the vent hood will automatically turn on at the LEVEL 2 setting to cool the oven. The fan will automatically turn off when the oven has cooled down sufficiently. This is an automated process and cannot be turned off. The fan may stay on for 30 minutes or more after the cooktop and microwave controls are turned off. The Vent Fan will only operate in 1~4 levels modes while the microwave is working."

    "Using the Vent delay off button
    1. Press the Delay Off button once to turn the fan off after 1 minute.
    2. Press the Delay Off button twice to turn the fan off after 3 minutes.
    3. Press the Delay Off button three times to turn the fan off after 5 minutes.
    4. Press the Delay Off button fiour times to turn the fan off after 10 minutes.
    5. Press the Delay Off button five times to turn the fan off after 30 minutes."

    If for some reason you don't have your owner's manual, you can still download it free here.

    Moen shower valve turns on full to cold water but flow becomes minimal when valve is turned to warm/hot. not getting enough warm water to shower. can this be fixed without rplacing the valve?

    yes and no. Find hot water heater and insure cold water supply valve is open all the way. check to see if there is a hot water supply value and that its open all the way. If you replace shower value over iron pipe on the hot side it is corroded up replace pipe and value. If copper, find hot side, find value and open it up.

    Have some one hold the bottom door safety switch, turn furnace on wait until heating fan relay clicks, and check at terminal (Heat) & terminal (neutral or where all the white wires are located on the control board) for 115 volts to 120 volts. If voltage is present replace blower motor, if voltage drops out while running then replace control board.Turn power off to furnace, open bottom door and feel blower motor with hand, if motor is real hot replace motor. you can not oil this type of motor, it has to be replaced along with the compacitor. Good luck.

    Right front wheel gets hot.

    It sounds like a classic "hot brake", your caliper is probably stuck depressed on the rotor. You will probably need to replace the caliper and both front rotors as the one that is getting hot is probably warped. They are replaced in pairs. Get the rotors/caliper and do it yourself. It really is a simple task with minimal tools/mechanical expertise. Get a Hanyes repair manual and it will be a breeze and save you $1K.
