Your fan is supposed to run on your computer all the time. If it does not, it will overheat and cause expensive damage.

Dell Latitude 6500- the power button lights up when plugged in and keyboard will light up but nothing else happens. The machine has a weak battery so I operate it without the battery plugged in.

First of all, you need the battery for a lot of the computer functions to operate. The wrong time and date can really cause problems for your computer. Replace the battery. Have your motherboard checked. Also, run setup when your computer starts to boot to make sure your system settings are correct.

Fan running continuously

the fan in your computer is constantly running to cool down the cpu and it is normal for it to increase it's speed, your fan should run quietly even it increases the rpm. But if you hear a loud noise in the fan, i think there's something wrong with it. I suggest for you to check the fan if it's coming in contact with anything. If the fan is visible while your laptop is operating, you can observe it to know what is really happening. I don't know what type of fan hp uses on their laptops, maybe something is loose already on the fan so better check it or bring it to a service center.

I have an old Kenmore dryer that works fairly well. About a week ago it started making a REALLY loud noise when on. It still runs and dries but it is vibrating and I have also noticed a few gray streaks on...

I would check the drum rollers, idler pully and see if something has fell in where the fan is. Also check for lint build up. That is one of the biggest problems not keeping the lint screen clean. It gets stoped up and the fan blade can't turn. Also causes it to get too hot and could cause a fire. Last take the belt off and remove the drum . Run the motor for a short time with nothing hooked to it but the fan and see if the motor is making the noise. Have fun. Hope this helps.As far as I'm concerned you have one of the best machines. I wouldn't buy a new one too much trouble and expence.

Hello.. can anybody help me with my problem, i have a inno3d gt240 ddr2 video card, the video card seems to be fine when the computer is newly turned on, but after about 30 mins. of using the computer, the...

My suggestion is when was the last time you took the side cover off your computer to check the fan on your video card. It sounds like the card is heating up and causing the computer to shut down. You can try blowing out the fan with air to make sure it doesnt have some larges peices of dust/dirt or that the fan isnt worn out. If the computer keeps running with the side cover off that would confirm an over heating problem with the computer. While you have the side cover off blow out the whole machine especially the power supply. Computers are dust magnets. While your using the computer if you have a video game that is graphics intensive run it and keep your eye on the fan of your video card to see if it stops turning at any point.I would also look really hard at the fan or fans on your computers processor to see if it is spinning freely. When your blowing out your computer with air blow air on the fans of your processor to make sure it has no dirt in it and it is spinning freely. If after 30 minutes your computer continues to run with the side cover off then either its time for a new video card or a new fan on your processor. Because one or the other is worn out.

I hope this helps you out.

I bought a used Emachine W3609 and it only came with a Starter Guide. Is there a regular Manual available for me to study on how to use this computer?

I have checked the emachines website and have the following links for you.

Specifications for you W3609

Drivers for you W3609

Unfortunately, I don't find a manual for your W3609.

If we can help with a specific problem, please let us know.

Computer Randomly Cuts off

processor overheating. When it gets too hot it automatically shuts your pc down and boots it back up. Even if the fan is running, it could not be supplying enough cool air anymore.
