So it's officially official. I cannot access my instant messengers. I've tried MSN, AIM, and Yahoo instant messengers individually, all of which cause overheats. Pidgin and Trillian, which I thought would be more manageable, both are problematic and cause my laptop to lag then overheat as well. I had been suggested to use web messengers. Meebo and eBuddy BOTH do the same crap and cause my laptop to overheat.

My only IM that doesn't have these problems, oddly enough, is Skype, where you can find me at maverick_skye (Not the Canadian one). It's really annoying and I miss you guys to death. But until I have a better laptop, I'm kinda stuck. Sorry folks.

Um, your laptop is obviously broken. Fix your crap?

Well, I mean aside from that. x3 If I could have by now, trust me, I would have.

Okay, let me rephrase. Your shit is so broken that seeking out alternative IM programs is a losing battle and you should be investing as much of your time and money as you possibly can into seeking a solution.

And by solution, we mean compressed air, virus scanner, or a new laptop.

Compressed Air - I do that at least once a week, I found myself with an overheat just an hour after
Virus Scanner - Run it every morning, never finds a problem.
New Laptop - Best option, still jobless, working toward that solution.

clean your notebooks fan with a vacuum cleaner, that should fix the problem (im 100% serious here)

Signing this. Try that, Maverick. It will surely hope.

Everybody should clean their fans on the PC, especially when it's a laptop.

As stated above, I clean it all the time. Its not the fact the fan is dirty, it just simply is not powerful enough to cool down the heat levels this thing gets to.

Usually it should be... Otherwise it's a flawed design. What manufacturer is that thing from?

Can you also try to set the fans of it to always run at 100% of their performance in the BIOS of the laptop? Perhaps auto-fan-control is broken.

Something tells me its the heatsink is what it is. I'm using this thing as well. Its still simply not enough.

I'm using an Acer Aspire 5130 note book, and my laptop sees very little, as a lot of work, seeing as it only has 0.98 Gigs of RAM.

Try opening up the bottom hatches of the laptop. That will allow more air from the cooling pad to enter. I have to keep my RAM card cover off, otherwise it heats up, and stops working. I also use CoreTemp, and whenever my temperature passes 110 degrees Fahrenheit I just blow into my fan, since its right on the side. Drops the temperature down about 10 degrees for a while.

Do a full restoration. Get a new antivirus.

You're laptop is most likely bogged down with so much random junk you don't use, broken registry files, and other issues that it's running the processor far higher than needed.

Not the case. It was overheating when I had Vista. But I downgraded to XP pro, which meant entirely deleting everything that previously existed on this laptop, still had those same problems. Same thing about my antivirus. Went through and run AVG just about every day and it doesn't find anything. Well, I run CCleaner, and AVG, and sometimes Malwarebites. And my laptop's as clean as a whistle.

Ugh, AVG sucks. lol

If you've cleaned the whole thing out and it's still overheating, it sounds like you've got some hardware issues.
