Well I have a HP pavillion ze4900 laptop and recently it has started to overheat.. it has overheated so criticaly that it has shutted off itself on numerous occasions while on. I dont know what the problem might be.. and i have no idea how to fix it.. im currently cooling it with a small fan placed next to it(i know its sad) for extra protection lol. I was wondering if I can get some advice that I can use to make the laptop's own fan better functional.
Also my other problem this that I have a 40GB HDD , couple of months ago I reinstalled windows with the desire to free some space and get rid of built up spyware.. instead a lot of the old data stayed installed..but a lot got purged too but now I dont know how my HDD is filled up again.. and I really dont have so much stuff taking the space. I have like 500 MB free now and I was wondering what the cause might be and where I can find unused files taking a lot of space..
First of thank you for your help. Ill check to see that both the ventilations of the laptop re unblocked.. ill try and set it onto a solid surface. it has 256 ram. I just got a small program that free's up cpu space which makes it run smoother but i feeel like im forcing it too much this way.
My main concern is that I currently have some programs and stuff that Im going to need therefore I was looking for an alternative of formating my HDD but now I think, in order to solve all problems I`ll just burn the most important on a CD keep some backups and just format it.
Thank you again for the help, and let me know if you have any other ideas.
