Dell precision m90 overheats randomly

\015 I Have a Dell precision m90 laptop. it has been working great for the past two years. now when i am doing anything on the laptop the fans start spinning at top speed and the graphics cuts out. the entire laptop slows down tremendously. i have tried to reinstall the OS, nothing changed. updated all the drivers and it did not solve the issue. I contacted Dell for repair and they sent out a dispatch but never called me never sent a tech like they were suppost to and now the warranty is expired. i have cleaned out the laptop and there is nothing blocking the fans. it happens randomly all the time. also when this happens the laptop heats up after the fans start spinning at full speed. im not sure what the issue is. if one of the fans are bad or something else.\015

Answers :

Either your motherboard has gone bad, or you fan AND cooling grid needs replacement. The grid is simply a series of metal bars, so to speak, which absorb heat to be passed out of your system with the cooling fan. The cooling fan has 2 speeds. If the system is not kicking in the higher speed on the fan, it's more than likely a bad motherboard. Also, make sure you keep your laptop plugged into the wall as much as possible. Going on battery alone does slow down the processor considerably to conserve the battery.

Best wishes.

Has anyone ever seen this? My network is down right now but it should at least still connect to the switch right?


Perhaps the "other" Dell's network cards have auto-sense, and you're using a crossover cable... when you shove it into the M90, you get nothing because the wiring of the Patch Cable is not right.\015\012\015\012Try a known good "straight ... Dell Precision M90 Notebook

Same problem I also have a dell inspiron 1525 laptop that likes to shut down on its own. I thought it might be overheated so I got the program to monitor CPU and GPU temp. It seems normally it goes to 60-70 degrees but when I run games it will jump to 90ish and then random shut down starts. It seems many ppl have similar problem with this product over on the dell support forum and dell has not issue any official statement. All the posters tried calling the support line and that's going no where.
