Well Try cleaning the air vents and use the system on a flat surface like a table as the air flow might not be flowing inside the system.And also there could be an issue with the heatsink on the system.As for the Cd Burner try using the system restore and see if that works

Pcg-3c2l system fan extremely noisy


Your fan is about to go out. It will have to be replaced. Once the fan goes out your laptop will run hot and shut down without notice. To replace the fan calls for disassembling your laptop. Get a quote from your local computer shop, then try the guys at:
http://www.generalsystemsconsulting.com
They will repair it and ship it back by Fedex or UPS and beat most quotes including the shipping charge.

You need to plug in your CPU fan. The CPU fan is VERY important in that it constantly cools your processor, making sure your computer doesn't over heat. If the computer runs and the fan isn't running, the CPU will over heat and cost you hundreds of dollars.
Turn off the power Unplug your computer Open up the case of your computer Find your CPU fan Find the cord coming from it Find the plug on your motherboard labeled CPU fan Plug it in there Plug your computer back in Turn it on

The fan on the ati radeon hd 2400xt video card runs constantly, any ideas of how I can get it to stop


you don't wanna stop that fan. the chip in your video and is very similar to your processor on your motherboard. it runs very hot, hot enough to even melt your card. if it's running constantly maybe your computer is in a very warm spot or your working the video card too hard. either way let the fan run or you'll severely damage your ard.

The fan is constantly running and part of the laptop gets really hot


Check the vent where the fan should be blowing out hot/warm air for good flow. If you don't have any air flowing, you might find that the fan inlets are plugged with dust, or the fan blades are covered with dust/fuzz. Clean all the air passages, inlets and outlets to make sure the fan can flow enough air to cool the computer.

My Sony Vaio laptop turns off constantly. It


When it is running I need to know if the air coming out of the vent slats is hot or just warm. It sounds like the laptop is overheating and shutting down so it doesn;t burn itself up. Get a can of compressed air they sell at office supplt companies and use short bursts of air in the vent slots and fan housing. If there is an access panel on the bottom that allows access to the processor and heatsink, blow that area out too. Then check the Sony support site and see if they have a BIOS update for that model computer. Some manufacturers are writing new BIOS instructions for their laptops for the fans to run longer and faster to take care of heat issues.

Display and Boot problem with HP Pavilion DV2125NR


It is normal for the bottom to get hot. The fan should keep it cool enough to run, but it sounds like perhaps your fan is not working very well anymore and should be replaced.

Does the computer act up at all when cool? If not, the first thing I would try is replacing the fan and examining the fan and heatsink assembly for proper installation, perhaps replace the heatsink compound with some Arctic Silver while you have it open.

Constant whirring- fan?


The whirring sound could mean the computer is running pretty warm and the fan is working hard to cool it. Or your fan is flat out going bad in which case replace it. One thing you might try is to get a can of compressed air (BlowOff) and see if you can get some dust out that may make you computer run cooler and your fan run smoother.

You need to solve the overheating problem first. Shut down the computer, unplug it and remove the bottom cover. Clean the dust and lint. Blow compressed air from a compressed air can. Re-install the cover and restart your computer. If you own a laptop, the fan should be running ALL THE TIME, sometimes slow, sometimes fast buta always running. Check the the fan is blowing air. If it is not, you'll need to replace it before doing anything else.

What hardware do you recommend or what is the best? What type of burner, CD-ROM, computer, DVD, fan, hard disk drive, monitor, motherboard, mouse, printer, sound card, speakers, and/or video card does.

Computer CD-R help and technical information The CD-R drive does not actually create pits on the CD, instead the burner creates reflective sections on the CD causing the computer's CD-ROM laser to.

Sometimes laptops can get very hot in operation there are after market laptop Coolers that the laptop fits into/onto and has extra Fans to Cool the unit. Perhaps that would help... As long as the unit isn't getting so hot that it is faulting then it is most probably OK.. But my laptop gives me a "Warm Knee" when I use it for long periods.. Using the laptop on a hard surface helps too the air has to be able to flow to be cooled affectively.
