Dell Latitude D610 shuts down after heating up

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by debnarayan461, Jan 3, 2008.

  1. I have been using this Dell Latitude D610 for the last 2 years.
    Whenever I run full virus scan using symantec or use photoshop or play
    music from an external hard drive the computer heats up and shuts down
    itself. I ran the dell diagnostics and it says everything is fine.
    What could be causing this? Thanks

    Often caused by being clogged up with dust/muck around
    the heatsink/s and fan/s.
    Or breakdown of thermal contact on the CPU/heatsink.
    Time for investigation.

    Laptops are notorious for sucking up dust and fibers from fabrics.
    Happened to one of my laptops after my kid used it.
