Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Laptop overheating Recently, when watching DVD's on my laptop, it overheats to a point where the disc has to be removed, until both the disc and disc drive have cooled enough before I can continue watching. I have visually checked the cooling fans (not dismantled the laptop) and they both operate upon startup. But when the disk drive is in use the fan on the right hand side (adjacent to the drive) does not operate. is this correct? This, I suspect, is what is causing the problem. I am in the roy


Answers :

Does the cooling fan spin up?
\015\012It may be seized up or spinning slowly.
\015\012If you can't get a replacement fan, and if you can get access to the fan, gently peel back the label covering the bearing and drop one or two drops of light machine oil on the bearing, wipe off the excess and replace the label, Spin the fan several times, if it doesn't spin freely get a replacement.
