Hi, does the battery last as it was earlier, before starts over heating?. If not, you are having some hardware related trouble and you need servicing of the system, else cleaning the fan and air vent may solve the problem.
Thank you for using over heating - fxnlogo_s.png

A cooling pad is a good soution, the only other option I can suggest is to get a can of compressed air and blow out your fan vents, as dust builds it prevents air flow and can result in overheating. Other than that there isn't much you can do other than taking your laptop apart and manually cleaning the fan blades.

Good Luck
Hope this helps

How do i resolve the problem of vga not responding after like 30 minutes to 1 hour of usage


your graphics chip is separating from the board enough to create the fault.Most use a flexible heat pad as a spacer between the chip and cooling assembly.Google to find how to clean fan and replace heat pad.Using a copper shim instead of the flexible pad is best.A reflow of the GPU chip may be required also.

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.

How can I increase my laptop battery life?


To increase the battery operating timeline you can do a number of things. These usually include dimming the screen, adjusting the power setting to turn the screen off after 10 minutes and stop the hard drive from spinning when idle after a period of time too.

Results will vary from laptop to laptop and depends if the quoted 6 hours 30 minutes time frame is an actual recorded time of usage off ac or based on windows assumption and estimation.

Windows power management can only tell you the time in which battery power is maintainable for based on the consumption rate at the time. With this being said start up and playing games will utilise more power that say word processing after the initial startup has cooled down.

Some laptops can be operated without the battery however there are an increasing number of laptops these days being manufactured without this option. You can attempt to operate it without the battery and doing so will not damage the laptop in any way. If anything it will maintain the life expectancy of the battery.

My ibm thick pad laptop suddenlly off every time i on it what might be the problem


When the CPUoverheats it goes into thermal shutdown and will not boot up again until theCPU has cooled down.
The heat sink may be clogged with dust, which causes the CPU to overheat byreducing air circulation through the heat sink.If you are notusing your laptop on a flat surface, it may be obstructing the cooling vents onthe bottom of the laptop. Your laptop fanmay be faulty and not spinning freely, in this case replace the fan.
Check the fan and heat sink assembly and remove the dust, loosen the dust anduse a can of compressed air to clear away the dust.A laptop fan assistedcooling pad may solve your problem

R61i overheats and goes in sleep mode


Many laptops accumulate dust inside the fan/heat exchanger assembly over several months or years, and must be removed in order for the laptop to properly cool itself. Depending on how much you use the laptop, it can happen in as little as a matter of months. You may want to ask a laptop repair place how much just to clean out the dust, and see if that works. Sometimes a cooling pad can help, especially if the laptop isn't already on a hard, flat surface.I actually keep my laptop on a small wooden board the same length & width as the laptop with a cooling pad on top of that, and the laptop on top of that, because I often want to set my laptop on my bed, which can smother the air circulation, and cause it to overheat quickly otherwise. Even when on a hard, flat surface, like a table or desk, if I am playing a game, I put it on the cooling pad because games cause the laptop components to generate a lot of heat, and this brand is somewhat notorious for overheating (especially when it has a discreet graphics card).

My car always jeck after running for more than 45 minutes. when it rest and get cooled, it runs perfectly but when it becomes a little bit hotter than it starts jecking sometimes the engines goes off and...


You will need to check on the two major areas of suspicion.
1. Check the fuel pump as on heat some pumps can bring in low pressure and irregular injections.
try and calibrate the pump to confirm with heat simulated .
2. Check the HT spark on the plugs, check the spark when the engine is hot , check the HT coils and the plugs and most important the ignition system.
The poor performance of the fuel and spark setting- timing -can reduce performance and thus increase the fuel consumption.

Fan starts making noise and the bottom of laptop heats up very quickly


Bring your laptop in to be serviced. Also purchase a cooling pad. Dust effects laptops the same way it does a desktop but the laptop gets hotter faster because in most cases the hot air has nowhere to go. I bet your fans vent on the heatsink is caked right now with dust.

My Dell 610D runs for about 15 minutes getting progressively hotter(speed fan) and then just stops working?


It sounds like the DELL is overheating and shutting down and if it cannot start up again straight away until it has cooled down then it is definitely a thermal overload (overheating) problem.
If the fan is OK then the fault is most likely dust clogging the fan and heatsink assembly.
The fix - loosen the dust from the vents, fan and heatsink assembly and vacuum/remove the dust off these components.
Use the laptop on a flat hard surface and/or place small pads to increase the height and ventillation to the laptop.
If the problem persists then there are products such as fan assisted cooling pads that you place the laptop on to provide addition cooling to the laptop,
If you continue to ignore this problem then eventually the CPU chip will fail.

Temperature setting is wrong. Stove is about 80 deggrees cooler than what the knob is set at. I am a yooper too.


If you think it is too cool, adjust the thermostat to make it hotter.


To Adjust the Thermostat:
1. Put the Oven Set knob in the OFF position.
2. Press and hold the HOUR INCREASE and the HOUR DECREASE pads at the same time for 5 seconds until the display changes.
3. Immediately, before display changes back, press the HOUR INCREASE or DECREASE pads to increase or decrease the temperature in 5 degree increments.The oven temperature can be increased up to 35°F.hotter or decreased 35°F. cooler.

If the oven adjustment is set cooler than the factory setting a minus sign “–” and the new temperature will appear in the display.

4. Wait several seconds for the control to automatically set and return to its previous setting.

NOTE: This adjustment will not affect the broiling or the self-cleaning temperatures. The adjustment will be retained in memory after a power failure.


To Adjust the Temperature on Models with Only an Oven Set Knob
1. Put the knob in the OFF position.
2. Pull the knob off by pulling straight out.
3. Press and hold the HOTTER or COOLER button for 5 seconds to make the oven 20°F. hotter or 20°F. cooler.
When you are adjusting the thermostat, the following lights will flash indicating where the thermostat will be set when you release the
adjustment button:
OVEN ON indicates the thermostat will be set at the factory setting.
PREHEATED indicates the thermostat will be set 20°F. hotter.
CLEAN indicates the thermostat will be set 20°F. cooler.
4. After you have made the adjustment, replace the knob.



If you have any doubt please go through the manual which is given here
