Blow the insides of the unit with a can of compressed air. Pay particular attention to all of the cooling fans. They can get very dirty sometimes which means their efficiency diminishes. Also blow out the heat sink on top of the processor. I do this as routine maintenance. Don't use a vacuum cleaner. You might **** up something important. If this doesn't help there is something else wrong. Memory getting hot, power supply? Could be a lot of things.

This is a heat issue. Make sure, as the other poster said, to check your CPU fan. If it is working, also make sure that it and the heatsink below it is free of dust.

The motherboard might not be compatible with the computers processor. Check the compatibility of the two, you might wanna change something. Ram cards could also have different frequencies, making them conflict while functioning. Get ram cards of the same frequency and memory. Motherboard could have malfunctioned as well.

    Anything heating up that fast couldn't be caused by a just a simple fan problem. I've owned computers with malfunctioned fans inside that could go on for a lot longer than 10 minutes with out reaching that height of temperature. Nevertheless, the fan in the PROCESSOR could be a plausible cause. If having it fixed doesn't work, try the solutions I've posted above. If left unattended external hardware such as printers and scanners may bug down.

Freezes almost everyday .wont even turn off.always have to let battery run out then restart next day


When the computer freezes, you can remove the battery physically instead of having to wait the few hours for it to run down. Underneath the laptop are two tabs holding the battery in, just release them and pull it out.
Are you using the machine on a soft surface (bed, couch?) that would allow it to overheat and malfunction when it freezes? Are you overloading the CPU with too many overbearing programs? Perhaps you've got a virus?
You'll need to be more specific about what you are doing when the freezing occurs. This could be anything ranging from software to hardware faults.

A/C causes the vehicle to overheat.


All trailblazer's are equipped with what is known as an electroviscous fan clutch. It is a fan clutch that is electronically controlled by the computer. I would think that your check engine lamp would be on and it would set a code for fan speed performance if there was a failure. Is the ses lamp on? Also you may want to check coolant level? Just because it is cold out doesn't mean that now that it is getting warmer that the coolant level is now low and causing an overheat condition. If it is 32 degrees or lower most vehicles can run a long time with no coolant in the compared to a 90 degree day where you are lucky to get 10 minutes before you overheat

Water Too Hot, Coffee Too Watery


Sounds like there is something wrong with the machine. Could be the thermostats or maybe something like an internal leak that is causing the machine to overheat. It sounds to me like you need someone to take a look at it..
