Question about Computers & Internet
My daughter's seven month old advent laptop keeps overheating and shutting down. The connection for the charger gets really hot and has now started to make the screen flicker when on?? Any ideas.
Check the jack on the machine to see if it's loose or broken. Use a small screwdriver, and see if you can move it in any direction. If it is loose or broken, get it fixed imediately. A loose or broken jack can create an electrical arch which can do severe damage to the machine.

Laptop Fan noise:
This seems to be a common problem with laptops over a couple of years old. Dust gets trapped in the copper fins and the fan of the CPU heatsink and reduces the efficiency of the cooling, which results in regular power off's by the laptop as it gets over it's upper temperature setting. The fix is relatively easy, just remove the heatsink unit, blow it clean with compressed air, clean the old CPU heatsink paste off with isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and spray a thin film of heatsink paste on the CPU.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response
