My laptop is so noise

by Mcparland09 / December 10, 2011 1:18 AM PST

My laptop is T60p. I have used it for 5 years.
Sometime it's so noise and restart without a reason.
How can I check and find out the reason?

At 5 years, you have cleaned it at least 10 times.

I've cleaned 3 months / time and replaced 2 years /time for the fan.
But now it is still very noise. Problem maybe not from fan.

You put in a new fan. Is the noise from the fan?

Also, at 5 years you replace the heatsink compound.

Sometimes you find old machines that the owner has never had serviced so you do the service.

Major cleaning

At 5yrs. of usage, there is also embedded dust, this is located and also adhears to components. This is NOT the typical dust bunnies but rather the fine dust, that ONLY immediate contact with will clean. This as to be directly blown and brushed off. Plus, if this laptop uses an int. cpu fan, it may have failed and the case fan is working hard to maintain coolness. If using "heat tube" method, fine dust isolates against best operation and outside air blowing won't do. In other words, you have to teardown and clean it all off. Finally, if this laptop was constantly used with continuing heat stress/build-up, the cpu paste can age and reduce its properties for best performance, re-paste. Last, over time as already explained above, some component may have started to flake out, if not a easily replaceable item, then rethink any fix.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
