You should be able to hear and feel the fan spinning. The air should also come out of the laptop usually on the left or right side near the hinges of the laptop.

It is also possible that the cooling system has not failed completely, in other words it is operational but not running efficiently.

Be sure to raise the laptop off the table to allow air to be sucked in from the bottom of the laptop.
It may need a service and a clean.

My chevrolet uplander radiator cooling motor fan only working, when the A/C is turn on. Any relay or fuse that I need to check?


It would be useful if you had mentioned whether it was a radiator cooling fan motor or a heater/ventilation fan.

It is usual for the cooling fan to switch on with the A/C is on unless the ambient temperature is quite low, otherwise it only operates subject to engine coolant temperature via a thermal switch fitted into the cooling system and/or the engine management system.

The heater fan is either directly switched and faults relatively simple to trace or subject to the whims of the climate control if fitted when a degree in magic is needed along with a box of tricks.

PC get shutdown automatically


It can happen in several cases. Like:1. If your processors cooling fan does not run properly or stops running , your processor gets over heated and will automatically shutdown to prevent damage of your motherboard. In this case check this first, If is runs but not seem so smooth, just clean it- dust can jam the cooling fan.

2.If your heat sink under the cooling fan is not perfectly fit on the processor, cooling fan will not able to cool it and will result your machine shutdown!


3. In case of Bad power supply, it can also happen. Check your power supply.


4.If your machine have defected RAM or became defected, it may happen. In this case you may have blue screen with message before shutdown your machine.


5. If you have operating system of Microsoft Windows, please check your hard drive for virus. Virus can shutdown machine with a common period of time! Damaged OS which occurs often in windows operating system also can force to shutdown machine.
Please check which one is in your case. Please mention problem details like something unfamiliar for further query.

Hallo, I have a Lenovo ThinkPad SL510 2847 and I get unexpected shutdown in a different intervals. It may be for example 10 minutes or 3 hours after the Windows starts. The system is ready to start...


It could be that the machine is overheating, if it's shutting down. Try ensuring that the vents are clear of obstruction, and that they are clean. If you can get to the cooling fan, then ensure that this is also clear. Don't use the laptop on your lap, as this tends to block the cooling vents as well.

It may also be worth checking to see if you get any error messages before it shuts down - in case it's something different (although I know that Windows 7 doesn't have an SP2 yet - so are you using Vista, or 7, SP1?)

When i boot up the laptop i get a message 'Main Fan Error' the fan runs on start up then stops just before i get the error message. Fan will not restart... Joseph


Hi,

This message means that the fan on your CPU (processor) is failing or has failed. This is not good because if the fan on the CPU fails your CPU will overheat and cause your machine to lock up and become non-functional till it cools down and then the same cycle will repeat till the fan is replaced.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

My IBM T22 LAPTOP cooling fan does not work . When I start LAPTOP SYSTEM START BUT FAN NOT RUN. I dont know whether it its problem or not.


If the fan is not running, your computer will definately have a problem very soon. Sometimes, the fan is just clogged up by dust and debris. Head down to a local computer store or one of the box stores and purchase some compressed air dusters.
Dust out the fan and vents as best you can. If the fan still does not spin, your computer will easily overheat and, in all probablilty, shut down on you at random.
If left for too long, this could cause multiple other problems for your computer. I would recommend you look at getting the fan replaced as soon as possible if you cannot get it to work by dusting it out.
Good Luck!

Toshiba 4010 is giving me a "warning, problem with the cooling system message" Machine gets real slow. How can I inhibit this message, I have it on a cooling pad?


The electrical components in a PC generate heat, and fans inside the PC help move the air to keep the components from getting too hot. Excess heat will cause the fans to run constantly, damage components, and limit the speed of the CPU. All of these problems with high power and high heat will cause applications to work slower than normal. One of the main functions of the BIOS is to monitor the temperature and adjust the operating conditions. While the sound of the fan running all the time can be annoying, it may the first clue that your PC is running as efficiently as possible. To help your PC as cool and as efficiently as possible, do one or more of the following corrective actions.
  1. Update the BIOS
  2. Keep air vents clear and clean
  3. Minimize disk operation
  4. Minimize CPU operations
  5. Check whether FAN is enabled in BIOS
Thanks Rajesh
