The fan can be replaced. Of course ,you'll have to open the laptop case in order to do it. I looked for the fan,but the best price I can find is $24.02 + $20.00 Shipping (From Singapore).

Samsung Laptop Shuts Down Unexpectedly


CHECK THE FANS! The biggest enemy to your laptop is HEAT! You just replaced the display it's very possible you inadvertently disconnected the cooling fan. Clean it while you have it apart dirt and dust prevent proper cooling

I broke the heat synch fan connector when replacing the fan. My guess is that I probably will have to replace the motherboard as this connector is on the mb. My laptop is Gateway mx6448. Is there a...


if you only broke the connector for the cpu fan, why do you have to replace the motherboard? just cut the wires and solder them directly to the motherboard , if the pins have broke off, if the pins are still there then just bend them straight and put the fan plug on them

Why does the fan sound as if it's hitting on something?


Its has accumulated a lot of dust and the dust is causing it not to spin correctly and therefore making a clapping noise , use a powerful hoover and **** the dust out of the fan

its either dirt or one of the fins on the fan has broke or the bearing inside is broken

All the blades on the cooling fan have broken off. can a new fan be fitted or should i just kiss goodbye to the laptop? its a dell inspiron 1525. cheers


If money is tight I would try to replace the fan, I seen them on ebay for 10 bucks, but what I am concern with is what broke off all the blades, and did the laptop over heat when it was powered on with a faulty fan. Personally what I would do is order the fan, if it fixes it you did good, if it doesn't fix it then you are only out 10 + freight, and then it is time for a new laptop.

Fan


you may have a cooling system and not just a fan. there are numberous places to buy, but you will have to know how to take apart whole machine.

My laptop(Toshiba Satellite A105 - S2051) wont turn on with or without battery on a/c adapter. Adapter seems to have a charge but when i plug it in and try hitting the power button nothing happens. I do...


hi, this is tricky, as the machine does seem to freeze even before booting. the fan may have become stuck, use some compressed air with the fan inlet (bicycle pump may do) to clean out some dust.

wait some time and switch on again.
observe if the green lamps for harddrive and cd-drive light up.
if no, the computer does not boot up, it may be then that :

the fan is broke and laptop prevents overheat damage by not booting up(buy a new fan and replace it)

or the machine itself is broke
in either way, if the solution i provided did not help, i would recommend to see a technician!

good luck then

Screen not responding


can you hear any boot sounds?
(fan noise, harddisk rattling)
do the LEDs work (battery and charger , Hdd, CD/DVD-ROM-drive,WLAN)?
this would indicate it still boots up, but screen might be broke.

u lucky?
- remove battery pack! retry booting

if not, hook it up to another external monitor
(use vga-jack in the back of it)
reboot, wait for signal

- check if the the fan is jammed
(due to sand???)
this might cause overheat problem -
use compressed air to blow/clean the fan inlet

still no luck? it simply may be broke...
