Laptop fan overheating easily
Asked Jan 20, 2007, 04:35 PM
My Packard Bell laptop overheats really easily.
It used to work fine I could even use it on my lap. But now, after installing an online game (though it might have begun before that), every time I try to play or even just when surfing the internet, it will just turn off. Now, in order for it to work for long periods I have to have it on a metal chair with holes on the bottom to keep the air circulating underneith, or have it propped up on a desk for the same effect. I have been told that the fan is broken, but is there an alternitive solution that does not involve purchasing a new fan?
