Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

My Acer Aspire T180 seems to run warm and the machine makes alot of noise, it sppeds up and then slows down. Any suggestions.


Answers :

There are two things you can do for the possible overheating...first that fan noise is normal for a fan to speed up and slow down depending on the signal it is getting from the processor. Get a few cans of compressed air that you can buy at an office supply store. Use short bursts of air and blow out the heatsink ventilation fans, etc. Open the cd/dvd slot or tray and blow that device out, open the access doors on the base of the laptop and clean them out. If you have access to the heatsink itself you can get some thermal grease, take the heatsink off the processor, wipe the heatsink off and the processor and put a very small "erasor tip" size dot of grease on the processor and spread it thin. Place the heatsink back in place and tighten the screws in an even sequence.
