Have you made sure the heatsinks inside the console are properly secured and that there is thermal paste between the chip and sink?

Also make sure the console has a lot of space to breathe ie well ventilated area with lots of space around the side back and if you can prop it up.

Why is my car overheating? The fans are not working


Probably cause the fans aren't working. The fans draw air across the radiator to cool the coolant. You forgot to ad the vehicle year make and model and engine size

Medion Akoya P6630 Cooling Fail


further fans can be added. it maybe you have added other hardware to you pc which will increase the temperature in the case so more coolers would be required to help cool the inside . If your computer is being forced to shut down this sounds like your chip is overheating risking it being destroyed.

My ps3 keeps freezing during games


Problem: Your Playstation 3 console is freezing during gameplay. There are usually two problems that would cause your Playstation 3 to freeze during

gameplay. I will start with the most common problem:

1. The Blu Ray Laser is wearing out. This is a common issue among the newer video game consoles. The laser is constantly lighting up to read the discs while you are playing your Playstation 3 whether you are playing games, Blu Ray movies, or DVD movies. Eventually the laser will burn out. As it starts to wear out, first the games or movies will freeze. After a while, it will not read Blu Ray at all. Finally it will quit reading anything. You can find lasers at the following website starting at $49.95. The same website also performs repairs of the Playstation 3 console:

2. Overheating. This is less common. If your PS3 freezes and you shut it off and back on and it comes on ok, it's probably not overheating. If heat is the problem, it will freeze right away if you turn it back on right away without giving it time to cool off. If it turns on OK with no problem and doesn't immediately freeze up, the laser is your issue. If you turn it back on and it freezes right away, your PS3 may be overheating.

If your PS3 is overheating, the best thing to do is to make sure you do not keep it in an enclosed area. Playstation 3 systems and XBox 360 systems run very hot. You must keep it in the open so it gets as much cool air as possible! You can also upgrade the fan inside of your Playstation 3 with the Whisper Fan which increases cooling. You can also find it at the following website:

Playstation 3 is overheat


If it is overheating, it might be that the fan is not working correctly. If it just shuts itself off after a while, this is likely the problem. Try Sending it CPR in NYC. They do repairs on Playstation 3 with a one week turnaround time. Much faster than Sony, and Cheaper as well.
Check them out, you can easily ship your unit to them.
website is www.cpr-nyc.com

Over heating playstation 3


Playstation 3 overheating is often caused by one of the following issues: poor ventilation of the unit, excessive dust build up in the unit, or a problem with the cooling fan itself. Clean the fan out with some compressed air and make sure it is getting proper ventalation
