The fan is not working.

My laptop the other day was dropped and since then the fan is not working. And the laptop as a result is heating up and shutting off.

Is there any way I can disassemble the laptop and see if there is anything wrong?

I would like your assistance. Thanks

Engine overheating


Overheating can be extremely bad for a car. Back in the days of carburetors, when engines were made of steel, overheating was much more common, and less damaging. But the modern engine has far less tolerance, with its aluminum blocks and, often, aluminum heads.

Many head gaskets have been blown out by overheat issues. Many heads have been cracked. These are not cheap repairs. Therefore, be vigilant and watch that heat gauge (thermometer). If your car starts to overheat, pull to the side of the road, and let it idle (do not give it a fast idle - that only worked in the days before electric fans) and, if that does not seem to be working, shut it off.

Bohdan Bodnar wrote: "The 2.2/2.5 liter cooling systems *MUST* be purged of air before operation; otherwise, coolant flow blockage will result (i.e., hot, possibly REALLY hot, engine). Partial purging will cause the engine to run hotter than normal; the temperature will gradually drop to normal as the system purges itself over several days/weeks."

Laptop shuts off afer 5 minutes


Sounds like your laptop might be overheating. Does it reboot successfully immediately after is shuts down after 5 minutes or does it have to sit awhile before it reboots successfully?

If you can't boot it right back up after it shuts down, then it is definitely running hot and will only boot back up successfully after it sits awhile to cool off.

Things that cause it to run hot:
1) Dust... Dust clogged in the vents, fans and around the cpu and heat sink.
2) A Fan is not working
3) The Thermal Paste around the CPU and Heat Sink has dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool.

For the best results you'll have to take the laptop apart to remedy the situation especially if you need to get to the Fan, CPU or Heat Sink.

You can try a can of compressed air and blow out the vents and fan area, that might work for a while but you'll be blowing the dust in. It's best to take it apart and blow the dust out.

Laptop shuts itself down after 20 minutes.


Check the cooling fan. Not just the fan itself but all the airways and metal fins that it blows air over. This often requires removal of the fan itself. PC and laptop fans act like little vacuum cleaners!

Fan not working


The Problem that you are having is that the heat sink is full of dust therfor the processor can cool down quick enoufgh so in result by safty it shuts the computer down. You need to clean all the dust out of the heat sink and this problem will be solved. 
Good Luck

Over heating


I would suggest you to check the heatsink and cpu fan,
it could be dirty, if it is dirty, clean it and it should work fine.

To see heatsink and cpu fan, open 4 screw on the back of your laptop.
remove the cover, remove the fan screw (3), remove fan,
remove 4 screw on the cpu heatsink, remove the heatsink.

if your heatsink and fan are clean, it could be something else cause the shut down.
in this case you should send it for repair.

It could also be the CPU "heat sensor" causing a "thermal" shutdown.
Try a hairdryer on cold blow, and point it in where the CPU cooler is!

see does the laptop stay on longer. Thermal paste dosen't usualy "go" unless the heat sink has be detached from the CPU.

I think as you say either the fan or I think the heat sensor.
