Need help with my laptop (Satellite A505)

7 posts in this topic

Ok, I believe my cooling fan is gone. I turn the laptop on and it cuts off in 5 mins or so. Before it does this a message displays explaining there is something wrong with the cooling department. I figure its the fan simply because I don't hear it working.

Any of you had this problem before and would any fan work? I have not attempted to open her up yet. No time. I blew some compressed air at it, dust came out but the problem remains.

Help a brother out huddle! Winter is coming and my laptop is the only way to see GOT. (and porn)

Super easy to take apart a laptop. You just have to know what you're doing. If you're a rookie, I'd recommend a YouTube video or two.

I'd do it for u if I still lived there

Yeah my laptop has done that exact same thing a couple. A good cooling pad with strong fans helps a lot. They aren't that expensive either

Fans are usually cheap and easy to replace, like TCF said just watch some youtube vids before you take everything apart (thats easy, putting it all back together is the hard part)

    • I think he has another two years of decent to slightly above average play left. He does benefit from our dline but is a solid if not more type player. If he was 23, I'd definitely expect him to explode but it's just clicking for him at 30(?) after 6 years in so like I said a couple years left of similar play as last year at very best but not much else I see.
    • What I noticed is how important Star and KK have been with giving Addison opportunities. Don't get me wrong; Addison is still a beast. But you'd see a lot of KK and Star helping Addison get those lanes to the QB. But what was shocking was how fast and good he was later on in the season. He really started getting it, and I think it's just the beginning. I would be surprised if he doesn't get double digit sacks this year.
