Hi,

I own a Fujitsu Amilo M 7400.
After having the harddrive replaced a year or so ago, my laptop has hte tendency to get very hot around the fan area and the fan to be almost constantly whirring. This has recently resulted in the occasional total shutown of the computer. This happens at random times, not when its necesserily particularly hot, nor if im running a lot of programs or videos etc. Any advice on how to stop either overheating, shutting down, or both?

Cheers

Use a can of compressed air to blow the fan and surrounding areas out, may be a dust build-up.

Here is a link to guide you how to clean the dust from the laptop.
When using compressed air don't tilt the can so that there will be no liquid that will come out.
