Well, you have to either find the part that's overheating and get a heatsink on it so the normal fans on the system can cool it, replace the fans that have stopped spinning and can't be cleaned and put back into service, reseat cards, or swap out some failing parts.

It could be CPU thermal shutdown, chipset, the 4-pin fan going underspeed, or whatever. In any case the motherboard and CPU in there seem to be good to spare out for more proudly built models, so a quad core might not be such a bad thing to swap in while you have it open and have to enter the BIOS to monitor the temperatures etc.

This shows that your computer is overheating.

Use a vaccum cleaner to get out as mush dust as you can. Pay special attention to the CPU cooler and heat sink. Also clean the graphics card if you have one.

Take care!

My frige & freezer do not cool,light & freezer fan run,compressor & coil fan do not run,air is blowing out of air vent in freezer,no cooling at all


If the compressor isn't running, the refrigerator or freezer won't cool - period. Hopefully, by now, you've had a repair technician come and troubleshoot the problem.

You may have blown one of the front panel connectors off of its pin.
look up your motherboards make and model. Then download the manual. Skim through the manual till you find the front panel connectors. Check to be sure yours are all plugged in.

My Gateway 7405 randomly shuts down. It does not matter how long it has been running for. It has shutdown during bootup and after running for many hours. Just before it shutsdown the fan accelerates to...


You might try changing the Power Options (its in the Control Panel) Properties so that all windows are set to NEVER. That is, so that it will never automatically turn off monitor, hard disks or go to standby. Also turn off all the alarms. This worked for my Presario R3000 running WinXP Sp2 which would shut off for no apparent reason. Having said that, you should blow out your fan with compressed air occasionally. And check that your power cord is OK. When you pull out your power cord, the battery icon should show operation.

My dell inspiron 1525 keeps turning off and shutting down without me doing anything. why?


The computer has a cpu fan that can get dirty over time. It's job is to keep the cpu cool. When the cpu overheats, the computer senses it and shuts it down immediately, to prevent permanent damage to the cpu. You can clean it by blowing compressed air into it, and should do that every few months, as routine maintenance. This is the most common thing that shuts a laptop down, other problems involve repair, so try this first. I bough a $7 three inch fan at Walmart to help cool the laptop, and when I run it, I never have it shut down on me, but once in awhile it will without the fan, especially when I play dvds or videos, which really work th' heck out of the cpu. There are also commercial laptop cooling devices, but my little fan works just fine. Hope this helps.

The monitor shuts off. Turning the power off


the monitor is going into power saving mode ... it can happen if it is not receiving any signal from the pc ( pc is not running or booted properly, bad video cable connection monitor to pc) or the pc is itself in suspend/standby mode.

No air or heat blowing from vents


if the fan is blowing this could be a problem with the climate controll switch that changes the direction of air from floor to defrost to vents, some are vacuum controlled through a vacuum operated mechanism that opens and closes a door in the vents which redirects the air to different places.

Maytag refrigerator side-by-side model MSD2756GE freezer is working fine, but refrigerator is not cooling. can not hear a fan blowing from freezer to refrigeration side.


remove the baskets and shelves in the freezer and remove the rear panels after shutting the fridge down. If you see heavy frost on the coils then the defrost model needs replaced. If not, check the that the fans runs, and then that the thermostat works and then that the damper that allows the air to the fridge compartment is opening correctly.

Kenmore side by side fridge not freezing after pwr went out for few hours


check freezer for frost build up and if fan blowing, check condenser make sure clean, and fan blowing, check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, freezer control should be in the middle setting, you can try turning that to Warmer freezer allowing MORE air to refrigertor side.
