The fan no longer does its job because either its air vents are clogged by dirt (clean them with a q-tip and a vacuum) or the fan itself is failing and it will have to be replaced - for that you will have to take it to a repair shop since the laptop will have to be dismantled to access the fan.

Internal battery error 601 hp compaq 6735s laptop


Remove the main battery and run the ac adapter only, if everything works fine the battery will need to be replaced, if the computer continues to shutdown the problem is most likely a bad cooling fan or it needs to be taken apart and given a good cleaning.

Laptop keeps shutting down


There are a few reasons, bad power supply adapter, cooling fan is not working or there is dirt blocking the ports causing it to shut down, battery issues, "remove to verify" the DC jack in the laptop has become intermittent and must be dismantled down to the motherboard level and flipped over for solder touch up.

Laptop continues to crash and freeze all the time even if the laptop moves or not


The laptop may be overheating.
When the CPU overheats then it will shutdown (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down.If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

Why does not cpu work on more tera hertze?


A CPU is specifically designed to work as a certain frequency. Some motherboards allow overclocking to speed up the clock frequency and allow the CPU to operate faster. The faster the CPU operates the more heat it will generate.
When a CPU overheats, it will shutdown - this is called thermal shutdown and if this is allowed to continue, the CPU will eventually fail.

Laptop heats and shutdown


You should not use a laptop on a soft surface such as a duvet or bed covering. The device needs to have free air intake and outlet to cool the processor. If you block the intake, which is probably under the machine, it will overheat and shut down.

If you want to use it in bed put it on a hard surface such as a large book, so that the air intake cannot be blocked.

Satellite A215-S7444 laptop's fan is no longer working. Was working earlier. What do I do to fix it?


If the fan was making a bearing noise and has stopped spinning then the fan needs to be replaced.
The fan may have stopped spinning because it is clogged with dust, if so loosen with a still brush and vacuum to remove the dust.
A faulty fan will cause the CPU to overheat and shutdown the computer and will not start up again until it has cooled down. Continue to ignore this it will eventually cause the CPU to fail.

My acer just shutdown after 5-10 seconds of being on, I first brought my acer to a computer repair shop, the tenant Diagnosed the problem was my fan. So I change the fan and I still have the same problem,...


Most properly the laptop shutdown itself it due to processor overheat problem. Bring back the laptop to the shop you changef the fan and ask them to check whether the heatsink with fan is tight properly to the processor.
