Question about Dell Latitude D620 Notebook
I solved a really familiar problem 2 days before here at home.
The problem is, that your notebook gets really hot within minutes. As it gets to an exact temperature, the CPU first slos down, then shuts down, to prevent damage, and to cool down. If it's an "old" notebook (I mean at least 1,5 - 2 years old), then the thermal paste on the processor got dry, and it doesn't do its job anymore. You have to apply a new amount of thermal paste (BTW you really should do it at least once a year).
1. Turn the notebook upside down
2. Take out the screws from the biggest panel (must be next to the heat grille)
3. Take out the screws from the cooler of the CPU
4. There will be a lot of white stuff on the CPU, clean it VERY carefully (tissue with alcohol, but NOT brush)
5. Apply a little thermal paste on the CPU
6. Take the CPU cooler back, and take the screws back
7. Take the bottom panel bake, and take the screws back
Here is a tutorial of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3Izxh7J44s
The other solution is to buy a notebook cooler: http://www.notebookcooler.info/media/ante-notebook-cooler-s.jpg
Hope I could help.
