Laptop reboots every hour or so

The laptop will reboot every hour or so. We replaced the noisy fans, and cleaned out the dust. Any other ideas? This happens whether on battery or outlet power. It does not matter what software is being used.

Random reboots are usually an overheating problem. First step is to look into the vents and see if they are clear of dust, fuzz, animal hair etc.
If they are clear you will need to access the fan/heatsink. The heatsink can accumulate dust depending on the design. If the fan sounds "abnormally loud" it could have bad bearings from dust and dirt and may need to be replaced.
Most laptops come with some way to monitor the temp, usually in the bios. Occasionally they come with a utility. You can use that to check the heat levels.

Very noisy fan


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.

The blower of my toshiba laptop is noisy?


Either the fan needs to be cleaned from accumulated dust, or it is damaged & needs to be replaced.
First, blow some compressed air into the fan vent. If a cloud of dust comes out, then you will need to disassemble the laptop & clean the fan & the air ways, then re-assemble it back. If this did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the fan.

My acer aspire desktop is making alot of noise and reboots itself after sometimes am not able to complete installation of operating system.


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.

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

Lap top keeps rebooting


Sounds like it could be an overheating problem if it happens after a long period of operation. Try downloading a hardware control utility to check the CPU temperature and control fan speed. look here

Of course this assumes that you can reboot after the pc is switched off for a time.

Today i started up my Asus N50V Laptop up and the fan is running continually now, I rebooted it and still no change. It never has done this before?


Hi,

It is normal for the fan to kick in to cool the processor, but it sounds to me like the CPU fan and the air vents need a good cleaning.

Noisy fans and them running for a length of time means that its having to be on more to keep the processor cool.
Other causes of the fan being loud and on constantly is gaming and heavy programs. The more the processor has to work the hotter it will get, thus the fan being on all the time.

Have a look at your air vents and the CPU fan for dust. If you see any dust then you will need a can of compressed air to blast through the vents and CPU fan blades free of dust.

Removing the dust from the machine usually quietens them down.






Regards.

Laptop Needs Complete Disassembly.. Fan and Heatsink Assembly needs to be cleaned, Remove all Dust and Debris From The Heatsink Fins and From the Fan Blades, Use A Soft Bristled Toothbrush to clean ..

Hi,
Fans are usually noisy due to a build up of dust that's collected on the fan blades.
The best way to clean them is to get a can of compressed air and give short blasts through the air vents, also turn the laptop upside down and give a couple of blasts the CPU fan grill.
Alternatively you can get a clean, stiff paintbrush to clean the fan blades and blow through the air vents to remove any dust.
The laptop won't get as hot or noisy if you clean the air vents and CPU fan blades regularly.

Laptop overheats way too fast...


What is the model number of your machine? Some have design flaws that make them run hot. Also dust is a great insulator. I would take the machine into a repair shop or get a can of compressed air and blow out any fan areas. A laptop cooling pad can be a good idea as well especially if you notice that the machine overheats while sitting on a desk. The noise of the fan is probalay due to the dust coating the heatsync. The fan has to run much faster to move more air to cool the system. Blowing out or having the heatsync cleaned is a good idea here!

Toshiba Satellite L15-S104, Model PSL10U-01X02F--A COMPLETE LEMON! 2-14-08 I purchased a Toshiba laptop in May 2005 at Best Buy in Montclair, California and all was good for a short time. Less than a year later I began to have so many problems. I took laptop to Best Buy Geek Squad and the hard drive had to be replaced! I had an extended warranty, so not any cost to me. I continued to have problems with the laptop and in took my laptop back to the Geek Squad in January 2008 and was told the laptop needed a motherboard at the cost of over $600! The warranty had ended. I have called Toshiba apx 4 times and finally given to a case manager and left on hold each time from 10 to 17 minutes! I have left messages and not anyone has returned my call. I have requested that my laptop be replaced. Christine Honea-Takata CHoneaTakata@msn.com Ever since I bought my laptop in December of 2004, I've had nothing but problems. My laptop overheats and shuts down repeatedly, the screen freezes, my sound only works 75% of the time, etc, etc. I have a stack of paperwork from the Geek Squad for numerous repairs - they've replaced everything at least once, some parts multiple times. They finally told me it was a lemon and that they were sending it in so that I could get a new lap top....6 weeks later I hadn't heard anything and called them - the usual waiting on the line, talking to 4 different people, them saying they'll call me back. A few days later I still hadn't heard back from them so I called again - same run around. They then told me that my lap top wasn't a lemon and that there was nothing they could do for me. I bought an extended warranty (3 years) and it's been in every few months - also meaning I'm without my blimmin' lap top for at least 2 weeks at a stretch. After my warranty ran out, I "gave up"...what more could I possibly do? The machine was a lemon from the start but Toshiba won't own up to anything. However, I know there was a class action law suit filed...haven't heard anything about it for the past year or so. I wouldn't touch a Toshiba with a ten foot pole. Terribly disappointed, angry and frustrated. I've lost huge amounts of data and had nothing but problems with customer service.
