Angry Overheating laptop - June 25th 2009, 12:09 AM

So my computer at times enjoys overheating and shutting down without warning. I have it on one of those pads with a fan to try helping it keep cool, this worked at first but now its less effective. I used some dust off to clean out the computer fan recently for the first time. I saw a good amount of dust come out, and it worked well afterwords. Now it's back to no good, and there's no dust left to spray out. It also makes a noise like the fan is hitting something loose if the computer gets jolted now, perhaps the dust off was too strong for it? :confused:

I wonder if the power plan influences heat, and which I should be using. Sometimes if I play a game it does get noticibly hotter. This is silly as its a decent computer though.. Damn modern technology!

Any ideas would be muchly appreciates =]

The power plan for my laptop does affect how much heat it produces I believe. When I first bought it, it did not produce as much heat as it does now, because it was always on power saver mode, now it's on POWERHOUSE(slight exageration :P ) mode and it does get hot.

EDIT: I JUST posted my message after yours.. haha that sucks that the fan broke, you might want to take that to a professional if you're not up to it.

Awww. Well, since you know what the problem is, I'll close this.

I'd sing you a song, but I'm feeling quite off
in my heart; it's occupied,

and now's not the time.
