My dell inspiron laptop runs very hot and is very noisy

\015 My dell inspiron laptop runs very hot and the fan is very noisy. It often has to shut down due to heat. Can this be fixed? When i got the laptop it was very quiet and very fast and i never noticed a heat issue. Now it's the opposite... Any tips?\015

Answers :

The way i see it you have 2 solutions:

Either go to your retailer and get them to dust the laptop and clean it`s fans. (You didn`t specify if it`s still in warranty)

Or solution number 2 would be to buy a special support for laptops.. most have 2 or more fans incorporated so that u get more ventilation. Of course that will not solve the noise problem really..

You also didn't specify how long have u been using your laptop as... with age they of course degrade and there is really no solution for that.
