A can of compressed air will work fine. Make sure you hold it up right. Holding it upside down will cause moisture to spray out.

Toshiba Satellite L500D is shutting down by itself OVERHEATING Clean the fan with compress Air ....> NO GO Need help Please or Any other Suggestion


Disassemble the laptop and remove the heatsink.
Remove all the dried up heatsink goo that's on the heatsink and processor.
Squeeze a small amount of QuickSilver heatsink compound onto the middle of the processor top.
Place the heatsink on the processor and move it in a couple small circles before locking the processor heatsink back in place.
Clean the air vents and cooling fins well while the unit is open.
This should fix any overheating issues you are having (assuming the fan is OK)
If the fan isn't running, replace it.

My acer aspire 8930 9600m gt gpu keeps overheating what is the problem


Gaming (and graphics application) consumes more CPU/ Processor resources and due to the heavy processing the PC (CPU & GPU) heatup. Excessive heatup beyond usual is alarming and PC shuts down by itself when the processor/ GPU temperature exceeds the safe temperature limit. There are mainly two reasons for heatup.
Laptop heating issue generally occurs due to fan failure, which may damage the system, if not checked properly. Another most likely cause of overheating is the dust present inside the laptop, which clogs the fan and heatsink.
1. Make sure the fan is running. (if not it needs replacement)
2. Clean the fan and heat sink (thermal module). Click here for laptop disassembly instructions and refer to
Removing the System Fan/Thermal Module after removing the outer cover. Take out the fan and heat sink. clean them with the help of tooth brush and put it back. Also, repair manual can be searched online or downloaded for referrence.
The procedure is very simple, but if you are not comfortable with working inside electronics, I suggest that you should get you laptop checked by a professional for servicing (if required). I believe immediate action is required to prevent any damage to your machine and data.

Hope it Helps! Let me know if i could be of any further assistance.

Sounds like the fan could be pulling the cpu down or it's overheating. The cpu fins may need cleaning and will stop overworking the fan and start cooling as it's suppose to.The fan itself could be dying.

I have a dell inspirion 1525 and it over heats and shuts down all the time


Check the fan in the vents if they are still working, if yes, clean them, you can do it with a can of compressed air.

If the fans are not spinning anymore, you'll have to replace them.

My acer aspire 5315 shuts off suddenly and won't restart till it wants to. I replaced the battery, no difference....what's wrong?


This could be a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced

If none of this solves the problem, or is not the case, then you might have a bad motherboard.

My IBM lap top seems to be overheating, it has started to shut down, I just guessed it was from over heating, it has done it quite a few times. It is on a docking station, so I wonder if it isn't getting...


The problem with the laptop is that the Main board fan needs to be clean. It could have accumulated a lot of dust. Try cleaning the fan and the laptop would be faster than before and seize shutting down.

Before that I would advise you to update the BIOS which will be available in the manufacturer's website. This could also resolve the issue.
Fan cleaning must be done in such a way that the laptop must be disassembled and clean the dust in the fan.
Assemble the parts once again and the laptop would be as good as new.

If you fear disassembling the laptop you can contact the manufacturer tech support to have the fan cleaned.
