    If you had the same problem you would know that the only way to access the fan on this laptop is to unsnap the plastic section over the power button, remove the keyboard, and then unscrew the fan from the top. I have this problem and I tried cleaning dust out of it but it didn't help.If im doing anything important i just prop the laptop up on a book and have a desk fan blowing in the back. Have looked up buying a new fan but it seems that the fan isnt faulty, just not powerful enough so a new one is unlikely to be any better. Great laptop apart from this stupid problem though.

I had the same problem. I took the bottom of the laptop off and cleaned the fans, you should find that it'll sort the problem out. Also make sure fans aint covered when on it.

Flashplayer keeps crashing

Try uninstalling Flash completely using Programs and Features in the Control Panel, then re-download the latest version of flash.

If it's still crashing, it's possible you've got malicious software causing issues.

Why does my computer keep shutting down?

Is Windows crashing or is it just shutting down without warning? If it is without warning, then I would suspect a failing power supply. May want to look at getting a replacement power supply.

My computer keeps shutting down randomly. Also when i try to use F10 it will not respond if i try and run error checking the system will crash/shut down or give me a black screen. Basicly it randomly...

1. overheating, and automatic shutdown.
Check that the fans are working.

2. bad RAM, causing "random" crashing.
On a "good" computer, download the free 'MEMTEST86+' software, and run it, to test your RAM.

3. Leaking capacitors on motherboard, causing "voltage-spikes", leading to "random" errors.

4. Bad disk-drive. Remove the disk-drive.
Connect it as a "slave" drive in another computer,
and run 'CHKDSK' ("Check Disk") to look for problems.

My advent 9115 keeps crashing because something is wrong with the wireless internet card

go into the bios and disable the wireless card - Boot to windows and go into add/remove programs and remove any reference to your wireless card.

If none, through control panel find Device Manager and uninstall the wireless card there. Reboot - Go back into the bios and re-enable the wireless card and then boot back into windows, let windows re-detect the wireless card. Hope that helps...

Sounds like it might be getting over heated. You will have to clean out the cooling system.

My HP computer keeps crashing

Could be an overheating issue. Open it up and clean it out with canned air. Blow all the dust out of the fans and heat sink.
