My 1530 has recently been overheating when left idle for a while(30 min or so). When I come back I find that the fans stop working, the system overheats and the laptop restarts with blazing temperatures.
In order to turn the fans back on, I have to shutdown the laptop and then switch it back on
I have an Acer Aspire 5517 Laptop. Operating System is Window 7 X 64 Home Premium. AMD Athlon TF-20 1.6 GHz Processor 2 GB RAM_ Physical Memory 220 GB Hard Drive
I leave my computer on during the day, and leave it occasionally for short periods of time..Lately, when I come back to it, the screen will be black..It is black because the computer turns itself off, for no reason that I can find out. When I turn it back on I get a caption that says the "user (name)has been locked out." Below that is a caption that I can click on that reads "switch user." If I click that caption, it says "user logged on." Which is the user that was just locked out! I click on that and my desktop comes up like nothing happened....
So far, to try and correct it, I have flashed the BIOS, because it needed updating. I thought this might work, but it has not corrected the problem. I have also done all of the standard things like defrag., cutting down on desktop icons, fewer starting programs, etc.
I've bought a Lenovo G575 three years ago, my warranty isn't active anymore. The fan in my laptop stopped working yesterday, and now when I do something that is CPU intensive, the Laptop shuts down because of the overheat.
Is there a way to buy a new fan? Should I open the laptop and take a look at the fan, to see if it can be fixed without changing the fan.
I've read other forums on similar issues, but I can't seem to find one that matches mine exactly.

Problem: When I put the computer into sleep mode, it goes into sleep mode without issue. It has stayed in sleep mode for a maximum of 8 hours, but usually before it hits this long the system will turn on. It seems to run random processes and overclock the processor as the computer gets very hot. It will do this until the battery dies, or if plugged in, indefinitely.
While it is doing this I have opened the lid, pressed every key, including power, with no response. Once, and only once, upon pressing the space bar, it had actually come to the unlock screen as though it truly was in sleep (except it was still overheating and on). Otherwise my only option is hard shut down.
I've just gone around it for a while now by shutting down every time and not using sleep. But today I had put it in sleep, and placed it in my backpack where it nearly cooked itself to death.I have tried:
-I have checked the wake_armed, which currently display NONE -I have checked last_wake -I have fiddled with hybrid shutdown.
For the past few days, I woke up to my laptop's fan rather loud spinning. I noticed that my computer was constantly at 100% CPU usage even with like literally no processes opened, and it's idling ~50C.
It's to the point where moving my mouse across the screen lags, the pointer jumps from one spot to another.
I'm not really sure what the problem is, I ran AVG with no problem, and I don't remember doing anything to my computer in the past few days that would be considered abnormal...in fact, the only thing I did do was try to use a screensaver for the first time ever, but I turned it off with no difference,
Just got new Latitude E6520 and fan seems to never shut off. Left side of laptop always hot even when computer is idle. I can hear fan being constantly on. Is it enough to raise support request or what do I do?
When I start up my laptop, it makes a beeping sound then tells me something along the lines of,"AC power adapter wattage and type cannot be determined."And when I press F2, it tells me that my battery is operational but it is on idle but the lights on the battery do not glow.When I get it started up, on the actual home screen with icons and everything, if I hover above the battery icon it tells me, "Plugged in, not charging."
My AC power adapter has a small led light on it, and it is green. Before this, my laptop used to get very very hot, to the point that I could not even put it on my lap for too long. I would also sometimes put it on my bed where there is fabric. Also, there is a break on the AC adapter at the very top near where it gets plugged in. I also ran a diagnostic test and it gave me back a code, 2000-0142 .....
Also, my laptop is significantly slower and I am using an Inspiron 1521
I updated the bios which fixed other issues. I updated the drivers and did all the win7 updates to rule any of that out. When teh laptop gets down to 18% it just powers off instantly. It does not go through a normal shutdown process or hibernate. I can power it back on and it shows 18% battery left. Is the battery going bad? I dont think this machine is barely a year old yet. I have no problems on wall power. Could it be a Win7 power setting? Just surprised win7 would slam the power off like that.
I just bought an HP touchsmart pavilion N229tx last week and I noticed now that it started creating grinding noises every 3 seconds whenever my laptop is on and running. The noise is coming from near the vent where the air is supposed to come out.
Also when I bought the laptop and opened it the first time I keep having the fan error upon startup saying that it had found that a fan is not operational I think it is error 90B. this now happens everytime I turn on the laptop.
I have an old HP pavilion dv5 laptop wish won't start up, fan works power light on screen is on but blank with just curser dash top left corner, now I've took hard drive out and tryed starting in BIOS no joy took ram out and I get 3 bleeps when I turn on ....
I'd updated my BIOS from A9 to A12 and the temperatures of my 1530 are shooting thru the roof. I'd left my laptop idle for an hour with a download in progress. when I came back, the laptop had shut down and upon restart the system the CPU temps touched 80 . The fans weren't even turning on.This wasn't a one off case, it had happened before. I've since reverted back to A09 and things are back to normal.
My 1330 laptop (with 8400m graphics) seems to overheat and become unstable when the ambient temperature is high. In the Bay Area where I live it is generally fine, but on a couple of recent summer trips to Phoenix and Vegas the hot weather made it unstable;
it would often run very slowly or just crash continuously. I've also seen this instability during a recent spate of hot weather here in the Bay Area, and it also happens when I try videoconferencing with skype even in mild weather here. I assume the videoconferencing just stresses the hardware more than anything else I do (I am not a gamer).
It seems clear to me that this is a heat issue, but because it usually manifests while travelling not at home, a fan pad doesn't seem like an appropriate solution
My Acer Aspire 5610 constantly overheats and shuts off. The fans arent clogged or anything and there's nothing that I can see that would prevent them from cooling the chips.My battery goes low quite fast even though I have it set to power saver.Buttons on my keyboard don't work very well, I can't use the mouse/touchpad or scroll buttons to scroll. And now when it performs POST, it has a lot of short beeps...like beep beep beep beep beep beep beep beep...no break or pause between the beeps.And it keeps going, it doesnt allow me to turn the computer off by pressing the button either, I have to take the battery completely out. The only way to pass the POST and beeping, I have to press F2 as if I wanted to go to setup, then it loads up correctly.
Over the past year I have had my laptop computer, a Pavilion g7 Windows 8, and it has been fine for about 5 months, but after that it started to overheat at times and give me the link [URL] ...... After that it has become more frequent and it shuts off 2-5 times a day. Depending on how long it has been used.
My 2 month old HP ENVY 17 (1050ea) constantly overheats and shuts down. It is sitting on a wooden table with nothing blocking the airflow.
It has just been back to HP for repair, they replaced the Heatsink and fan and updated the BIOS (thou the bios appears to have no updates that affect the operating temperature). The machine will suddenly switch off and then on re-boot the bios displays the message 'System Temperature (90D)'.
On return from repair it seemed to be a little better, its system temperature was now peaking at about 77C rather than the mid 80s that it would peak at before repair. The first shutdown occured after about 20 minutes (running a simulation). After this it could be made to shut down after just a few minutes running prime95, then just web browsing will shut it down once it has been hot.
One of the service engineers suggested that I am expecting too much of the machine to run for any period at maximum power. It was also suggested that I need to purchase some sort of external cooling system to try and keep it working. So is there a way to manually underclock the processor ( and maybe GPU?) to keep it running?
Whenever I play a game, sooner or later, the computer just promplty shuts down. The part of the computer which holds the graphics card is then generally very very hot, which leads me to guess that this is the problem. Note that it sometimes can run for several hours without complications, but other times it wont even take half an hour. It's getting very frustrating and this combined with a lot of other issues makes it an altogether very unpleasent experience using HP.
I have updated the bios, but not changed anything in it - no overclocking or anything.
First of all it runs in Windows completely rock solid. I have ran stress utilities for over 24 hours, and the system is completely stable.
My problem is that it is very unstable before windows loads. For example, if I simply leave it in the BIOS setup for 5 minutes the computer will just power off. It is also quite hot underneath. This occurs also if I boot from DOS (or other e.g. XP recovery disk) boot disk to run some utilities - the system will run for 5 minutes or so, and then just power off. The time that I get before it powers off decreases if I immediately switch it on again, suggesting an overheating issue. I did not have this problem when I first got the laptop 3 years ago.
This problem is really annoying as I want to run some low-level utilities to repartition my hard disk and also possibly reinstall windows, but this problem is preventing that.
Any ideas? Perhaps some strange software that I installed? ACPI config? Memory issue? BIOS issue? Computer is hot in several areas under where the CPU / TV tuner / graphics / memory are located .
My system spec: - Pentium M 760 2GHz - Ati X700 256MB graphics - 2GB crucial RAM (2 x 1 GB DDR2 533 CL4) (upgraded from 1GB over a year ago and fully tested to be working) - Newest BIOS from Acer installed

The bottom of the computer is hot to the touch and the fans are blowing out hot air. I cleaned all fans and heat sink vents. also re applied all thermal paste on the cpu and gpu. Im concerned because my motherboard and gpu were just replaced yesterday for heat issues i believe. havent figured out if the heat was the cause or not. the temps were the same as there now with the new motherboard and gpu .....
I noticed that when idle the temperature slowly goes up to 65C, then the fan kicks in, lowers it to 45 and stops. The temperature goes up again and in about 2 minutes it is already 65 again. The process repeats indefinitely.
While in use, the XPS 12 is usually fairly cool and quiet through normal operation. It spins up if in heavy use of course. This is whether on AC or battery power.
However, if the machine sits there and goes to idle, the fan spins up like crazy and the bottom warms up to. This is for hours and hours at a time - often if I leave the machine at night and come back in the morning this is the case.
I thought it might be some process that starts running when the machine is idle and away, but if I leave Task Manager open there isn't any disk or CPU activity that would indicate that happening.
I just got the xps 1640 today and I'm very distracted by the loud system fan. It's audible all the time even when the computer is idle. I haven't been doing anything intensive on my computer either. The fan starts as soon as windows loads and never stops. I know this laptop has heat issues but I checked the core temp and it is only between 38-45degrees C. I know the fan can get louder under load, this is what I would describe as idle but still, it seems way too loud. It was raining earlier and I could hear the fan over the sound of raindrops hitting my roof. It's getting unbearable!!
Has anyone had the same experience? Or more importantly does anyone have a way to reduce the speed of the fan slighty? Speedfan doesn't seem to support my motherboard so I can't do it there.

I am using Dell Inspiron 15, Model 3520. I bought laptop in January 2013 and its started giving this kind of error.
When I am using it continuously its working fine , when i go away from system(kept idle for sometime) it gets shutdown. So I need to re-login and it closes all the application which i was using before shutdown.
I already did some initial checks like scanning entire system for virus(i hardly have any data on system) and Dell online PC Check which passes all the test.
