From them I am willing to bet you still have the same problem. I have experienced the exact same problem on other HP's and found the problem to be thermal run-a-away of the CPU. This is caused by the thermal compound deterioration between the CPU and Heat sink that the fan cools. The lack of hot air and the speed of shutdown indicates that the CPU is operating near thermal limits most of the time. Since the CPU and Video Chip share the same heat sink I believe you will tie the behavior to increased video display (Larger images etc) and CPU activity. The solution is simple in concept but can be difficult in execution. It involves removing layers to gain access to the CPU and Video chips, Removing the heatsink, cleaning off the old compound (which will be dry and hard) from both chips and heat sink, adding thin layer of grease style heatsink compound, and reassembling. Another thing you can try is to buy a fan heat pad for under you laptop that plug into your USB port. Radio shack was selling them for $14. If the problem disappears or greatly improves you have proven the thermal issue and can decide what to do about it. Perhaps the pad will be just fine for you. Let me
look to see if fan over cpu chip is running. if the cpu socket fan is not spinning sometimes the pc will not boot. the cpu has to be kept cool so its a safety default. lose connections have been know or broken.
just fixed such a problem by resetting the wires on the motherboard.
If the fan on top of CPU is dirty, dusty, damaged or not connected properly,it could cause CPU to overheat. The Computer should switch off automatically to prevent damage to CPU (they can burn out very quickly if not cooled properly!!!)
1. Is the fan connected properly to motherboard? Check cable running from fan 2. Is fan dirty or dusty? Use a small brush or can of compressed air to remove dust off fan. Never use a normal household vacumn cleaner-this can create a static electric discharge which could damage components. 3. Is fan damaged ie does it spin when powered on? Replace fan with similar make and model
hi. let's try these steps: 1- change the Ram memories socket each other (if you got two Ram memory). 2- touch the heat sink of CPU Fan and see is it cool or hot. if it is cool check the Pins of CPU Fan (maybe they are not assembled correctly)
This problem could be a faulty fan or most likely the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust. Remove the dust from the fan and heat sink assembly and clear the hard to get places with a can of compressed air. If you still have overheating problems and the Dell has vents on the bottom of the laptop. then you can use a laptop cooling pad (it has fans in the pad), place the laptop on this pad and it will get additional cooling from the fans in the cooling pad.
From your description I would be certain that the is a faulty fan and it is not cooling the CPU chip properly. When the CPU over heats the CPU shuts down (this is known as a thermal shutdown) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this fault is not fixed then eventually the CPU chip will fail. Replace the faulty fan to fix this problem.
u r saying that the laptop is overheating. I think it is from cpu overheating right. just to make sure that it is cpu overheating, just go to the following link and download the software around 1mb which displays each and every component heating levels. from that you can find out the exact component. http://www.cpuid.com/software.php
if cpu is heating then just replace the thermal interface material and the problem will be gone. if the cpu thermal interface material is too old then this type of problems arises
yes big time need cpu fan to work and new greese big time turn it on hi on bios if u can also buy acooling pad on ebay labtop cooler pad keep it cool these so hot killed power chips in it now bad mobo least get that cooler on ebay ok
Sometimes depending on the version of BIOS there is a thermal shut down feature,If the CPU gets to hot it will shut the entire system down.What you can do is replace the CPU fan and apply more grease in between the heat sink and the CPU chip.If this does not solve your problem then you may have damaged the CPU.the best way to fix this is to replace the motherboard and CPU.Try replacing the fan first because if your computer has the thermal shut down feature then chances are that it protected the motherboard and CPU from any damage.Try the simple things first! GOOD LUCK.
it sounds as though your cmos chip is damaged; if you are unable to get as far as the bios when pressing F2 or Del on boot up, then you may need to replace the motherboard.
Also reseat your memory as that is another cause and check the Cr2032 cmos disc shaped battery as this may be flat and the original cause of constant reboot cycle.
Lastly this also happens if you have changed any hardwre in your pc as windows will not boot if there have been major changes to hardware and windows will have to be repaired using your XPcdrom.
