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.

My compaq presario become very hot within few miniute and then it is automatically shut down.what is its harm and how this problem can be solve.


It is overheating. It may be a few things, check the vents and make sure they are not blocked by anything (sometimes dust can block them as well). Also listen and feel at the vents to make sure you fell air blowing out (if not the fans may have died out).
The fact that it shut down means it is trying to save the components before they burn out. You should be able to turn it back on once it cools down enough. You can also use a fan to blow air through the vents to speed the process. If it continues to shut down, it will burn out eventually if not repaired. You can get by for a while by using a fan base (you sit the laptop on it and it has fans blowing air on it to keep it cool). You can purchase this at any bestbuy or staples.

My laptop fan makes alot of noise and gets heated up very quickly.all the games i play cause the laptop to shut down without warning due to overheating.i have tried getting it cleaned, but it doesnt...


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

Thanks, Joe

My Averatec 3200 keeps shutting itself down. The


A common problem with all laptop is dust. Sounds like you have 5 years worth of dust stuck in there. You should get a can of compressed air and blow though every vent you can! You want to loosen the dust that's in there and possibly try to blow it out and/or get it closest to the vents.

After that you should take a vaacum cleaner and **** out all the dust you can!

Dust inhibits air flow, alot! Its the number 1 killer of old computers.

I've had a bad dust problem and my cpu fan began making a loud whirring noise and finally the computer shut down altogether. Took the cover off totally cleaned out the dust and turned the power back on....


If the computer detects overheating or fan failure it will shut down automatically. If you replace the fan you should be fine. Remove your old fan and try to get one that connects the same way, some of them connect directly to the heat sink, others to the motherboard.

Go to emachines.com and see if there is a firmware update for your computer BIOS. Some thermostat errors are cause by a BIOS fault that can be corrected with a firmware upgrade.
