How to stop over heating laptops or computers.


1. Fix Internal Cooling. The first and most important thing you need to do when your laptop is overheatingis to clean the fan(s) that provide(s) cooling to the CPU and graphics card. Over time, they build up layers of dust and dirt that slow them down and block airflow.
A laptop that severely overheats causes damage to the internal components. Before this happens, the laptop should attempt to shut itself down. ... If you smell smoke, a burning odor, the fans never run or the fan runs all the time, be careful to avoid ruining your laptop.
The most common cause of laptop overheating is a non-working fan. ... Viruses, spyware, adware and other types of malware put a heavy strain on the CPU and other components of your laptop. This causes those components to heat up, often to a point where the fan simply cannot move enough air over them to cool them down.
Determine Whether Your Computer Is Overheating or Just Hot. Laptops get hot. It's what they do. However, if your laptop is shutting down, suffering from the blue screen of *****, or experiencing serious slowdowns, then you have a much bigger problem on your hands.
A laptop that severely overheats causes damage to the internal components. Before this happens, the laptop should attempt to shut itself down. ... If you smell smoke, a burning odor, the fans never run or the fan runs all the time, be careful to avoid ruining your laptop.
Heat is a computer's enemy. Computers are designed with heat dispersion and ventilation in mind so they don't overheat. If too much heat builds up, your computermay become unstable, suddenly shut down, or even suffer component damage.

Hi.
the first thing i would check is to make sure there is no dirt or dust stopping the fan from running because if the fan is not running it will heat up and shut down or if the fan is running slow it will shut down.
and for running slow i would do a good clean up get rid off stuff thats not needed anymore.like music,pictures,the more your harddrive has on it the longer it will take to load and run.

Hello, i have a Acer Aspire 5100 Laptop which i bought in 2007. Recently i have started having problems with HD-Ready videos (720p). before when i use-to play 720p videos on my laptop it use to run...


As you say the laptop handles the video well in the beginning, then when it runs for a few minutes it has trouble rendering the video in sync with the audio.
The reason for this problem is that 720p videos need the Graphics card in the laptop to work hard, this process generates heat and this heat needs to be removed from the laptop or the whole system does what's known as throttle down.

It slows down to reduce the heat it produces, thus preventing damage to the system.

The solution to this problem is to clean as much dust out of the laptop computer as possible, use a vacuum cleaner. Turn the laptop off and remove the battery. Clean the vents, it is a good idea to raise the back underside of the laptop with a pencil or the like. Some-thing that will raise the laptop off the work surface without obstructing the vents on the underside of the laptop. By raising the laptop it will allow for greater airflow through the laptop, therefore reducing the operating temperature of the laptop therefore making it more efficient and responsive.

Your laptop shuts itself down, this confirms that it is overheating. It does this so it does not damage itself.
If it still overheats then you will need to contact a computer technician to give it a good through cleaning. To clean the dust between the heatsink fins. Possibly increase the fan speed or replace the fan.

Take care!

Auto shutdown and reboot


Your harddrive is starting to go. You will need to replace your hard drive. When you computer starts running slow then it reboots itself is because it is trying to get itself to work properly, but the hard drive is not operating at full capacity. I would back up all of your files as soon as you can onto either a CD or a flash drive, to save yourself from very costly repairs if you need to have the data extracted from the hard drive

My Toshiba P35-S611 shuts down without warning a short time (2 min-45 min) after it boots up. The battery isn't hot but the heat dissipation fins in the back are very hot.


Indications of laptop overheating problem:
  1. The keyboard and the bottom of your laptop are very hot when the laptop is working.
  2. The CPU fans are working all the time at maximum rotation speed and operate much louder than before.
  3. The laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without warning. When it just started, the laptop was shutting down after 1-2 hours and how it shuts down after 5-10 minutes of operation.
  4. The laptop works fine when it runs idle, but shuts down as soon as you start using any memory demanding applications (DVD player, image editing software, video editing software, etc.).

Solution:
If the CPU heatsink is not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air and just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom and on the sides. It’s nice as a precaution measure, but it might not work if your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is completely clogged.
  1. Open the laptop case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes (for example Toshiba Satellite A70/A75) you have to open the laptop case all the way down.
  2. Carefully disconnect the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to replace the fan.
  3. Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
  4. I would also recommend removing old thermal grease from the CPU and applying new grease for better heat conductivity.

Download and run AVG Free 8.0 anti-virus (here), then download CCleaner (here) and run 'cleaner' first, then run 'registry' from CCleaner's left-side menu. Next, defragment your computer. 99% of your problem should now be fixed unless there was serious damage to Windows itself. Make sure that you set a restore point (in system restore from control panel) between running AVG and CCleaner and follow all of it's back-up prompts.

Shuts down


A Vista Upgrade from XP could cause problems, and even the one you describe, but not an "update" usually. But then again, if when it shuts itself down, if you have to press the power button twice to get it to start back up, I would say that the processor is overheating (in which case the system does this to keep from frying the CPU). If that's the case, a cleaning of the fan and heat sync could fix the problem. You could also run temperature monitoring software (plenty are available for free trials).
As always more detailed information on this issue you are having would help.
Good luck.

Overheat?


It sounds like an overheating problem. When it is booted, does it run ok other than just being slow? Check your cooling fan and make sure it is running and not stopped up. That is a number one symtom of overheating is freezing and rebooting by itself. There is a free program called "Motherboard Monitor 5" that will monitor the temp for you and set off an alarm when it is getting to hot. Check that problem first. Hopes this helps!
