Most CPU fans are controlled by CPU temperatures and even when loafing, they get hot. When you DON'T hear them cycling, it is then time to worry.

GPU cooling problem


Try reinstalling the heat sink and putty on GPU. Make sure heat sink is fitting correctly. If the only thing you did was upgrade the fans and redo the putty, then your heat sink didn't seat properly.

Acer aspire overheating fix


What model of acer apire ?
When a laptop gets hot physically hot, to the touch you know something isn\'t quite right. It\'s normal for a computer to get a bit warm as it runs, which is why computers have a built-in cooling fan in addition to a heatsink and cooling vents. Excessive heat, however, is almost always an indication that something is malfunctioning. This is no different with the Acer Aspire 5000.

What\'s Happened If you\'ve ever looked inside of a computer or seen an "exploded view" of a laptop, you will know that thousands of components work together to ensure your computer\'s best performance. The cooling fan is activated by temperature readings from the central processing unit, which heats up and cools down depending on what it is being used for. Sitting idle, the temperature of the CPU will be low and the fan won\'t come on. When the computer is performing a few tasks simultaneously, the CPU is taxed and the fan kicks in. When you hear the fan whirling excessively, the computer is overheating which can damage the CPU. Thermal compound is a sticky paste that is placed directly onto the CPU. http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Thermal-Compound-Roundup-February-2012/1490 Allowing for a more direct heat transfer between the CPU and HEAT SINK and preventing air gaps from forming between the CPU and heat sink. b> Checking Temperatures You can download programs to monitor the core temperature of your CPU. Programs like Core Temp, Speed Fan or Motherboard Monitor use the hardware monitoring devices built into your Aspire notebook to track its core temperature. Different sources suggest that the Aspire 5000 can run at a different maximum temperatures. Users on Tech Support Forum say 50 to 60 degrees Celsius is normal even optimal and that above 75 degrees is a problem. Acer\'s technical manual for the Aspire talks about external temperatures for running the computer efficiently (between minus 20 and 30 degrees), but it says nothing of internal temperatures. A few different users reported overheating to the point of 90 degrees, at which point the computer freezes and shuts off. Warranty Fix Computer original equipment manufacturers like Acer sell every computer with a limited warranty. Overheating is usually covered by this warranty. If your computer is repeatedly reaching high temperatures, and you\'ve recorded the temperatures with software, contact Acer for a replacement or a repair. Out-of-Warranty Fix The simplest way to address an overheating problem is to let the computer breathe a little. Make sure that you use it on a flat, hard surface so that air can pass to the fan easily and without interruption. You can buy laptop cooling pads at most computer stores that are designed with this in mind. As a complex fix for an out-of-warranty system, you can follow a picture tutorial from MPS Computers to replace the sealant around the heatsink with a new glue called Arctic MX-2. This glue allows more heat to escape and brings the core temperatures down about 10 degrees.

My toshiba satellite a665-s5170 is constantly overheating.


Depending on precisely what happened, there could be a series of problems. Check for obstructions in your heatsink and fan. Use some compressed air to clean it up. If that doesnt help, try adding some lubricant to the fan (WD40 is a good start). You can purchase a cooling pad, that could lower your temperature by up to 6 degrees celsius. If that is a problem, you may want to reapply the thermal compound, which could reduce temperatures by up to 8 degrees.

When it on maybe 1hour or less than that its automatically turn off and it very hot then i leave ten minute and turn on again it okay, and that is the problem with my laptop accer(aspire 5315 series)


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.

CPU Cooling Fan Run Time


It is normal for the fan to switch on and off (cycle). The run time depends upon the ambient temperature, the thermal switch setting and how hard the CPU is working at the time.
Some computers allow you to adjust the CPU operating temperature from the BIOS configuration, but this is not the norn.

My laptop alway run cpu cooling fan and get high sound from fan


Bikash, Do you know how hot the processor gets in 15 seconds. You cant touch it. So the fan keeps it cool so that you can work for hours without bursting the CPU. Sound is a different matter. Try feeling the bottom of the laptop. Where it is hottest try tapping a little softly. Is the fan has loose mounting or body or bearing the sound will change. If it does change, take it for repairs.

Acer aspire 5010 bugged fan


as for aspire products, that would be part of the aspire 5000 series.
if your processor is getting that hot often its probably overheating. theres probably some dust bunnies in the fan or the fan pipes. try dusting it out and see if that solves the problems. you generally shouldnt have to alter the fan speeds at all because they are temperature controlled.
try resetting the bios to defaults if some how the fan settings were changed to funny values. it should definately be kicking in sooner than that.
