Question about Computers & Internet
I have a dell inspiron 1520 laptop that heats up all the time. After close to thirty conversations with dell, they sent me a new Inspiron 1525, which doesn't have the same graphics or other features and surprisingly has the exact same heat issue as the other one.
I am able to use it for about 20 minutes before I start sweating and feel nauseous.
Can you help me target the problem? I've heard all kinds of excuses from Dell, but something is wrong if two laptops cause the same problem.
I have just a few questions first, then we'll see if we can "cool the heels" of your laptop. How are you using the machine, ie... at a table, desk, couch, in bed, etc...? What do you have the machine positioned on? Where does the machine heat up at or what area? And finally, in which direction is the heat dissipating? Get back to me (before you rate me), and I'll see if I can suggest something that will help.

Remove the battery from its compartment on the side of your Dell Inspiron laptop computer.
Remove the power adapter from its plug on the side of the Dell Inspiron (if your laptop is currently plugged into a wall outlet).
Press down and hold the "Power" button on the laptop for one to two minutes. This will dispel the excess electrical current that is built up inside the laptop.
Put the battery back inside the compartment of your Dell Inspiron.
Plug your power adapter back into the side of the Dell Inspiron. Press "Power." Your laptop computer will now turn on.
hope this helps
