Heat Issues In Dell Inspiron 5100 and 5150

The other thing i noticed a few months back was the excessive heat my Dell Inspiron 5100 would generate... I didnt really pay attention to this until today when my laptop just shut off all by itself while I was transferring gigs worth of data from my backup server... no beep no reboot... just totally went dead. Initially I thought I might have installed the HD incorrectly and the OS just shut off but then I didnt remember seeing the hard ware related blue screen error. So I did some research and found out that thousands of people all around the world are having this issue with Inspiron 5100 and 5150.

Apparently, according to many it is a design flaw by Dell that does not dissipate the heat properly... however, a few simple things might keep ur Inspiron and the heat sink working the way it should. Here is the article that one should follow and install the software... I was able to bring my CPU temp down from 68 in idle to 46 ... and thats a tremendous jump !!!! Nevertheless, I am pissed with this laptop.... i have had to go thru two hard drives and now the flaw that heats the laptop like hell... some times its worse than hell !!

PLS go to this site and send dell an email and sign this individual's guestbook... I dunno if Dell is listening and I dont know about Michael Dell but 1400 bucks is a lot of money for most people.

Hey, thanks for the advice!! I'm down in the 30s now from mid 60s, and on my 3rd hard drive with my 5100. Many thanks for resolving, at least temporarily, the problem of having an oven on my lap whenever I need to work.
