Angry Answered: Heat problems!

Ugh! I keep going on my laptop (dell vista) and it is turning off because it's getting too hot! What should I do that wouldn't make me have to shut down?

My brother had a laptop, and it's battery didn't work right either. The battery would overheat so badly, that within 10 or 15 minutes of using it, you would get burns on your leg (even if you had on long shorts or pants) (btw, they weren't serious burns, just red marks, they'd go away within an hour or so)
The battery actually got recalled a couple weeks ago.
But his was an HP (with Windows Vista), not a Dell.
So are you sure yours is a Dell, not an HP?

Turn it off and let it cool down. When you turn it off, lay it backside facing up,so it cools off. Your battery is getting to warm.

Your fan may be dysfunctional. This is a common problem with many computers. Try taking it to a professional to have it cleaned.

Also, when you aren't using it, unplug the charger and put it in 'sleep' mode rather than just closing it. Try to keep the bottom of it airy--as in not on cloths or fabrics.

Sorry you're having issues with your laptop ~ that's no fun
When I use mine on my lap I use a special cushion ~ you can buy them for the laptops. They keep the computer from overheating when it's on your lap.
You may have a problem with the computer itself though ~ that may need looked at by a professional.
Good luck with it and hope it stops overheating for you !

My computer burns me too. But with my kind of skin my burns turn into tans, so I consider it a free tan.

When the computer is not in use try putting it facedown next to an open window or using a fan to cool down the underside. See if that helps a little, and if it doesn't then throw it into the freez--- I mean take it into the shop and see if there's something wrong with the battery.

I hope you find a cure soon and if you can find a way to stop the burning, let me know.

I have a Dell Vista too, and I use one of the cushion thingys (I'm using it right now ) and it definitely helps.

Hi sorry you are having problems!

I have to use a pad that does not block the vents on the bottom so it does not overheat.

Sometimes I will even blow into the vent when my leg starts to get hot. LOL

Well I know from experience that my Wii does the exact same thing. What we have noticed is that the built in fan isn't strong enough to cool the system down, so every time we play we have a big fan we turn on right next to it, and the system has never over heated since! Try running a fan right next to your laptop and see if that does the trick.
