I have a sony laptop and last summer its fan area was getting very warm and shutting down. I had let it cool for a couple of hours to start it again.
I opened and removed blockages from cooling fan area. Now, it doesn't shut down (summer is not here though). The problem I am having is when I turn off and turn it on again it doesn't start (hard disk doesn't kick in).
As a remedy, I put it in a refrigerator to chill before it starts again (on button will be on but noise wooosh when the hard disk start is missing because hard disk doesn't start at all when it is not perfectly cooled or it hasn't been use for a day or two).
- Is it possible I haven't properly reinstall some wires after I cleaned up the cooling fan area?
- Is it possible my hard disk is dying?
- Would this chill process harm my laptop (some part inside might sweet and the moisture could damage some sensitive parts)?
- Is it possible some connection doen't allow current flow unless it is cooled to make the connection possible?
