In Reply to: Fan noise on a35 satellite by grajee
i have the same A35 S159 and used to experience the same probs, shutting down all the time due to overheating,this is probably due to the fans not cooling efficiently enough, which i realized is due to dust and lint,a possible solution is tryin to clean the fans,i`m not sure if a can of pressurized air will work, but what i did was to take the vacuum cleaner hose to the fans, make sure that the unit is off when your doing this, u can place the hose up to the fan vents at the bottom of the unit, i noticed a lot of dust and lint came through when i did this, it really helped with cooling, since cleaning it the fan noise has decreased and most importantly the unit doesnt overheat anymore, periodically doing this helps with cooling and the fan noise. Hope this helps, worked for me. Good luck!
btw, anyone with this laptop had probs with the dvd rom, mine simply stopped reading dvd`s, the CD-R and RW works fine, but it refuses to read dvd`s, i`ve downloaded millions of drivers and tried everything, concluded its prolly a hardware prob...
