Inspiron 5150 fan continously running
\015 Fan is working ,going all the time ,but laptop still runs hot.\015
Dell Inspiron 5150, has overheating problems. The position of the fan is a problem.Also,don't press of the left upper corner of the laptop.Here's an excerpt from a wikipedia article:\015\012"The overheating problems on the Inspiron 5150 model was due to the position of the fan and fan-vent and the way in which it vents air through the CPU's heatsink. The fan draws air from underneath the unit and vents it through the rear after passing over the heatsink. However, the unit also sucks up dust from underneath it. Over time a buildup of dust constricts the airflow through the unit, reducing cooling. The airflow is perceptibly diminished. A simple test is to place a hand near the fan vent; when the fan is running at high speed there should be a good flow of warm air. Heat will also build up along the top of the unit near the LCD display and left toward the optical drive. Users may notice this while typing. Performance may also suffer, with jittery game movement and slow Windows performance. Some systems may experience jerky reactions where the unit goes into an almost slow-motion phase for short periods of time. Continued operation in this condition may lead to overheating and could result in permanent damage to the CPU, GPU, motherboard and other internal components. To remedy this the unit must be disassembled, the dust removed, and fan operation checked. This problem not uncommonly results in a CPU temperature-increase of between 15-20°C over an normally functioning unit. Further temperature increases may damage the casing of the unit."From Wikipedia article"Dell Inspiron" under problems\015\012\015\012Hope it helps\015\012-CG
