Having problems with your Gateway Computer System Cooling ?

Hi, gateway w323-ul1 laptop cooling fan is not working.

Answers :

Try blowing out junk in the fan by shooting air in the out vent. You can also try making up a very small hook with a paper clip and trying to see if you can pull out any junk.

If the Laptop is still under warranty call tech support. If not, you should still check the FAQ and knowledge base at the Gateway website.

Laptop fans don't run continuously. They normally run during boot and when the laptop gets too hot.
