Fujitsu® LifeBook P3010 Overheating
What are the possible reasons for overheating of Fujitsu LifeBook P3010 computer?
Fujitsu LifeBook P3010 computer system comes with the AMD Athlon processor technology. The main components of this system include 2 GB DDR2 RAM, 320 GB hard disk and ATI mobility Radeon graphics technology. Since the system contains powerful processor and latest graphics card the overheating problem can normally occur when you use the system in long time. When you perform functions that need more processor utilization, the internal components of the system consume huge amount of power thereby generating excess heat inside the computer system. Usually Fujitsu LifeBook laptops are provided with the cooling facilities to absorb excess heat generated inside it. But any complaint with cooling equipments and long time gaming with the use of powerful graphics card also leads to overheating problems. Other causes for overheating problem are the damage due to the internal components. Insufficient space inside the laptop for proper air circulation would also cause overheating problems. The high temperature working environments will also lead to overheating problems with the computer systems.
Some of the tips to resolve overheating problems in Fujitsu LifeBook P3010 are described below.
- Replace Faulty Internal Battery
- Use Special Cooling Software
- Clean CPU Fan and Vents Regularly
Replace Faulty Internal Battery
If the internal battery in the Fujitsu LifeBook P3010 laptop is faulty, it leads to overheating problems. The faulty battery will take too much current from the main source and liberate excess heat. You could check this by working the laptop with the AC adapter. If the system works without overheating, then it might be the problem with the internal battery. You need to replace the internal battery with a new one.
Use Special Cooling Software
Certain special software programs are designed by the third party developers to help preventing computers from overheating problem. This software works in the same manner as your laptop’s power supply settings. This software controls the processor speed or screen brightness for avoiding the situations which leads to build up more heat inside the laptop. These software programs can also regulate CPU fan speed at needed situations and thereby your laptop can exhaust the excess heat generated inside the system.
Fujitsu LifeBook P3010 laptop is provided with vents and CPU Fan to provide cooling to the laptop. Dust surrounding the laptop can enter through this vents caught by the CPU fan. Sometimes it might close the vents. This will reduce the capacity of the CPU fan and reduce air circulation inside the laptop. So you should clean the vents and CPU fan with the use of compressed air or hand vacuum cleaner.
