laptop become erratic or slow because of heat
Posted on 2006-04-12
I had this problem for several months now with my Dell Inspiron 5150 with DVD RW drive and GeForce Go5200 Graphic. I bought the laptop almost two years ago. Since beginning of this year, my laptop become very hot in very short times and this leads the computer to become erratic when I play movies or play games. And the laptop's fan sounds like a "hurricane" . I updated my BIO to 38A, which is the latest for Dell Inspiron 5150. I am pretty sure it's because of fan. Is there anything I can do to solve this problem? like Do I need to clean up the fan?
