To prevent damage from overheating, make sure you have a small clearance from the bottom of your laptop and the area where it is located, so that the air can circulate. Also, look for an electric fan and point it towards your laptop to add cooling.

Laptop cooling fan running at very high speed


Try loading and using a program called speedfan to control your fan speed if that is appropriate. This can also show you your CPU temperature (if you can figure it out). Core Temp can show you temperature of modern CPUs, amongst others.
Otherwise try cleaning you CPU of dust - search the internet as to how to this safely.

1993 mercury topaz fan blowing but heat not getting to interior


Make sure the coolant level is full. Check the temp gauge to see if the car is running at the right temp. Feel the upper hose and lower hoses after the car has run long enough to warm up. They should feel warm/hot. If they do no than the thermostat may be stuck open. Feel the hoses going to the heater core. If one feels hot and one feels cold than either the heater core is plugged or the heater control valve (if equipped) is stuck closed. If you suspect a heater core you can always try back flushing it to see if you can clear it out.

Laptop shuts down during gaming


It most likly a heat issues I got one just like yours and it runs way to hot running 720P videos when I run 1080p forget it...it lags and skip or hit dam near 200F. Use SpeedFan to monitor the tempature. Get a laptop cooler with a big fan in the middle that where the intake is for the laptop and it exit on the left side. Make sure you blow out dust from the exhaust and intake area. I am currently looking for ways to keep the fan going full blast all the time to keep it cooler longer fans are cheaper to replace not CPUs and mother boards

Overheating issues


Hi,
Most likely the cause of the overheating is the fan its not running properly though you may hear the fan is running but its not working as it used to, also I suggest try to check where is heat coming out from if its on the Hard drive bay, Memory bay or the CPU area, try to fell also the air vent if you feel coming out from it.

You can try this steps and see if it fix your issue.

1. Follow this link to download Speedfan: http://www.almico.com/speedfan443.exe
2. Open and install Speedfan.
3. Launch Speedfan (this usually takes at least a minute to start).
4. Observe the temperature readings you receive. If your temperature readings are above 60 degrees Celsius or higher, especially when the computer is idling, then your laptop is running too hot. If your laptop temperature is below 60 Celsius, then leave Speedfan running and check on it periodically to see if the laptop is heating up (whether idling or in use).

If you are sure your laptop is overheating, then there are a few stopgap measures that you can employ:
1. Place the laptop on top of a cookie sheet.
2. Place laptop on edge of table so that the air vents on the bottom of the laptop are not being blocked.
3. Use a standing fan and turn it directly on the laptop.


Ways to fix laptop from overheating:

Follow this link for pictures and text explaining the next several steps. http://www.insidemylaptop.com/disassemble-acer-aspire-5610z-laptop/
(The laptop model used in these pictures isn't exactly the same as yours but it should be close. Don't worry, this process isn't that difficult, and you won't have to go any farther than removing the cooling fan.)
1. Turn off laptop, unplug laptop, and remove the battery.
2. Unscrew all panels on the back of the laptop.
3. Remove RAM, Hard drive, and cooling fan by following steps 1-8 on the linked website. Skip removing the DVD drive (step 6).
4. Using compressed air, a vacuum cleaner, or an air pump, blow air into the now open compartments in the back of the laptop.
5. Blow out the dust and dirt in the cooling fan.
6. Reassemble and turn on laptop.
7. Run Speedfan and monitor your temperature.
If your laptop is still running hot, then either employ the stopgap measures or take the laptop to a laptop technician. The laptop technician can take your laptop completely apart, reapply thermal grease to the CPU heatsink, and blow out more dust and dirt.
Good luck, thanks for using FixYa, and please post back to this solution if you have any difficulties.

Inspiron 1521 is running hot


I recommend you check your air vents for dust buildup. Use an old toothbrush to clean the dust off the outside of the vents and then use one of those cans of compressed air meant for cleaning keyboards to blow air through the vents to dislodge any dust accumulated inside. Some laptops have more than one vent. Make sure to clean all of them. I once worked on a Sony laptop that I had to take apart to clean out all of the vents.

My compaq presario C700 model #C765TU easily gets hot and is crashing


Make sure that there is no dust in the Fans of teh unit. The Compaq's are famous for overheats.

Download a program called SpeedFan available from

www.almico.com/speedfan.php

once you donwload the file install it, it will put the computer's temp in your system tray by the clock

Try and watch the temp and see what its at when the computer shuts down.

If it is an older unit your processor will most likley need to have heat paste applied to the processor.

You can call your local repair shop, some will do it for about 25.00... Make sure that when you use the machine that you provide enough room for the fans to breath, do not set the laptop on a couch, or bed where the heat cannot escape.

Also check to see that the fans on the bottom of the machine are running. they sometimes fail, however you should receive notification of this on the POST when your computer starts.

Hope this helps

Laptop getting unusually hot in operation


Re: "the FAN runs only when the booting is being done.but it stops as soon as the booting is completed".

That would be normal, as the variable speed fan comes on only when the computer is under load.

What is not normal is that the fan is not coming on when the computer overheats.Or that the fan is not cooling enough when computer is overheating.

Monitor computer temperature using a software, check if Fan is coming up when temperature gets critical.

If fan comes up but does not cool enough, then replace the fan, it is not efficient anymore because of a bad bearing or dust. ~Also ensure that fan is well mounted, if fan has poor contact with CPU surface , cooling will be poor.

If fan does not come up, and critical temp is not detected, then the sensor on motherboard is bad, this is very uncommon.

If fan does not come up and temp is critical, then fan is faulty, replace it.

There are also more than one fan on many laptops, check that one of the fans (CPU fan, video fan) is not completely ded, and therefore cause for the problem.

Here is the software to control your fan and temp state:

Download SpeedFan - Access temperature sensor in your computer

Download SpeedFan 4.38

Sony VAIO GRT170 laptop fans wont run.


Overheating usually happens when the fan is not coming , therefore when the computer overheats.Or the fan is not cooling enough and computer is overheating.

Monitor computer temperature using a software, check if Fan is coming up when temperature gets critical.

If fan comes up but does not cool enough, then replace the fan, it is not efficient anymore because of a bad bearing or dust. ~Also ensure that fan is well mounted, if fan has poor contact with CPU surface , cooling will be poor.

If fan does not come up, and critical temp is not detected, then the sensor on motherboard is bad, this is very uncommon. When this happens the problem is usually related to system or power settiings , rather than overheating.

If fan does not come up and temp is critical, then fan is faulty, replace it.

There are also more than one fan on many laptops, check that one of the fans (CPU fan, video fan) is not completely ded, and therefore cause for the problem.

By using the software below you can also find out if the problem is really overheating. If temperature results within normal range, then usually it is not overheating.In that case test systtem and check power saving settings.

Here is the software to control your fan and temp. sensor state:

Download SpeedFan - Access temperature sensor in your computer

Download SpeedFan 4.38
