Hello and Welcome to Just answer. My name is XXXX X will be assisting you today
Please come to the chat so that I can help you
can you please provide the full model number of the laptop like Compaq Presario CQ60-514NR Notebook PC
okay the comptuer get very hot even the left side keys get hot. I can hear the fan but could cleaning it help? The model is compaq Presario C!60
it is a presario CQ60 215 DX
ok one moment please let me check the model first.when did you install the new battery?
when did you install the new battery.i mean 1 or 2 days back?
one week ago and it was heating before that. I thought the battery might cause it but that isn't so. Also I changed the power settings and went to the lowest that helped alittle but not that much. I do have alot of programs on the couputer.
is the fan vent located on the left side of the laptop?
I mean I have had the battery for one week. Reading that back I wasn't very clear about that.
Yes the fan vent is located on the left side of the laptop.
Ive owned computer for about 2 years I don
so before replacing the battery you had the same temperature problem am i correct
don't think it is still under warrenty. Can I try to fix it.
Yes it has been heating up for at least a month.
As I said I have rebuilt desktops but not laptops.
so that mean 's the programs where installed before that
would it help if you knew how much of the memory I have used and how do I do that?
that doesn't do much after all the heat is from the cpu fan vent
I see, does that mean my cpu fan is going out
possibility is there can you go to bios utility ?
how would I do that interrupt before windows start and try to get into the bios?
