My fan doesnt seem to be working and laptop just shuts down after it gets hot


Hi, your laptop shuts down as a protection against overheating. It's important that you take the laptop right away to a service repair shop so it can get the fan replaced before other important components get damaged.

The above as over heated and seems to fail after about ten minutes of being on this is an intergrated card can it be fixed without replacing the motherboard it is in an asus laptop.


I suspect that your cooling fan has stopped working or the sealing mating between the fan surface and the CPU is not intact. These fans quit working because dirt and grime gets into the fan shaft and friction slows the fan . also if the fan gets accidentaly moved on the CPU, then this breaks the heat transfer tape between the CPU. This over heating causes the CPU to fail. Open the machine and observe if the fan is running correctly.

My acer laptop aspire 4730z just shuts down with no apparent reason..i just cant get rid of it..what seems to be the problem!?


It may be due to overheating. Make sure all air vents are clear of dust. Check that the internal fan is working - usually located under the keyboard. The fan should usually ony come on intermittently, first when you boot up, then intermittently in Windows when the processor is working hard. If the fan is on all the time and especially if it is running fast then your processor is overheating.

If you go into the bios setup and the laptop resets within a few minutes with the fan running fast then you have a definite processor overheating problem. This may be a faulty processor or a fault on the motherboard.

My computer is overheating and how do u clean the fan


need to blow all the dust out of the vents on the side and bottom of laptop and check out the fan while the laptop is running. If the fan seems to be running slow, the bearings may be damaged and you may need to get another fan.

Overheating


Overheating is a big issue with Gateway. It mostly involves problems with the fan. When Gateway receives a warranty fan problem they replace it with a fan that is reconditioned or rebuilt (probably from another cutomer's unit like yours) and they don't seem to last long. To make sure it is a fan problem, which is the most common, Turn on the laptop and wait to see if the fan is turning on. It won't take long, processors get hot quick. The fan should turn on and run anywhere from 3 to 15 seconds then turn off. It should do this approx every 5 to 7 minutes in order to keep the processor cool. If it doesn't work at all, works seeming sporadically, or the processor gets really hot before the fan starts, then it's a fan problem, and a NEW fan should be purchased. If the fan works properly, then it could be that the fan and heat sink need to be cleaned internally due to dust build up.
