A can of compressed air will work fine. Make sure you hold it up right. Holding it upside down will cause moisture to spray out.

Dell inspiron n 4010 hangs often


I suggest you open the laptop, and clean it out first. THEN go on with the diagnoses.

Dell Support > Inspiron n4010 Notebook PC > Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/insN4010/en/sm/index.htm

1) FIRST remove all power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

2) FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components on a computer.

Relieve your body of Static.

You should use an ESD wrist strap, and connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source.
This is an example of an ESD wrist strap,

This pictorial guide for disassembly of an Inspiron n5010, should help also.

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/taking-apart-dell-inspiron-n5010-inspiron-15r-laptop/comment-page-1/#comments

The screws, and cables, etc., are in a different place, but disassembly is still the same.

Use a can, or two, of compressed air for computers.
Also you may wish to use Q-tips, and a soft small brush.
(Makeup brush? )

DO NOT use a vacuum!!!!

A vacuum creates Static electricity.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

My acer6530 laptop very warm and switch off


Hello Sajithomas,

In most cases where a laptop gets warm to the point it turns off is because the cooling system is not working as it should. Computers and laptops are programmed to switch off automatically when reaching a certain temperature to avoid damage to the different components inside the computer. You can check these values by accessing the BIOS during computer start-up.

Generally this problem happens because the cooling vents are obstructed which prevents the hot air to go out.

The best way to resolve this matter is to clear the vents, not only on the outside but on the inside. So for this you have to be handy and be used to assembly/dis-assembly tasks.

IMPORTANT: It is strongly NOT recommended to disassemble your computer if you are not used to this. It is better in this case to have a technician do it.

So, if you are sure you can do it by yourself, then follow the below steps.
1. Disassemble the computer.

Disassembling the computer can be a complex task if you are not used to it. First of all, you you will need to locate the fan. Once found, remove the fan and clean the vents. You will be surprised by the amount of dust that can be found in there.

2. Cleaning

Once the fan is located and removed, you can now remove the dust obstructing the fan. Using a hand aspirator can be of a great help here.

In this picture, I have located the electrical connector and also the most important area you have to clean. This is where dust accumulates and blocks ventilation. When clean, you should be able to see through the other side.

Also make sure that the other vents are not obstructed .

3. Replace the fan

Now you can reseat the fan in its place. Make sure not to forget to plug the connector or else the fan will not work as it will have no power supply.

4. Assemble the computer.

Now you can assemble the computer and the problem should now be resolved.

----

Here (http://tim.id.au/laptops/acer/aspire%206530.pdf) is a link to the service manual of the Acer Aspire 6530. It will explain how to dis-assemble and re-assemble the computer. Please make sure to read it carefully and understand it before attempting anything. Again, I would strongly recommend you to go to professional if you don't feel doing it.

Glad to help you.

Dell Vostro 3500 suddenly shut down


Try going back to the previous version of the BIOS to see whether the problem continues. You can download older versions from the Dell website and install them over the existing version.

If this does resolve the issue, I would report the problem to Dell and as a precaution inspect the fan and the ventilation screens and ducts for debris and clean as required.
If you're good with a screw driver and the laptop is no longer under warranty, you might even consider taking the laptop apart to clean out any dust build-up from the ventilation ducts.
If this answer is any help at all, please rate either 3 or 4 thumbs. (1 or 2 thumbs are considered "horrible" and "bad")
Thank you for using FixYa and have a Happy New Year!

My acer aspire 4730z is getting heat and shutting down. how to resolve it....i purchased it 18 months before . please give me reply please.......


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.

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