Overheating Dell D600?

\015 My laptop runs ok for about 30 mins, however it then stutters, and will not recover untill I shut the thing down. \015\012 \015\012When I feel the bottom it is really hot (to the point where the metal parts on the laptop can burn your hand). Is this is what\342\200\231s causing it to stutter? \015\012 \015\012It generally only happens when i'm doing something that requires a bit of CPU usage, it seems to be fine if I just leave it.\015\012 \015\012Thanks in advance :)\015

Answers :

Get a can of compressed air for cleaning computers. Turn the laptop over and locate the vents to the fan inside. Blow the compressed gas through the machine to clean out excess dirt and lint. Then turn on the laptop and see if you can observe the fan running. If you can see the fan running you might notice how fast it is running. If it is running slow or not at all then you need to get that replaced.
It is overheating. This is the #1 killer for cpu's. First check all your vents to make sure they are dust free and blowing air out. If they are then you'll want to either upgrade your cpu fan or you could buy one of those laptap cooling pads to keep the laptop on while in use. Hope this helps.
