Technology Can’t Take the Heat

Hi everyone, sorry this post is late, especially since I promised to update more.  This time, however, I have a good reason for the delay.

And boy, do I wish that I didn’t.

Over the past few days, my laptop has been overheating to the point where it automatically shuts down.  The last time I had it on, it ran for about an hour before deciding it was time for some shut eye, and it didn’t even heat up that much.

I don’t know if I’ll be able to write long posts or papers on my laptop for a while, nor do I know whether it’s a matter of replacing a battery or buying a new laptop entirely.

I’m currently writing this on my folks’ computer to make sure none of this post is erased by a sudden shutdown.  I might be able to borrow a friend’s laptop occasionally, but I’m not sure when I’ll be able to return to updating on a regular basis.  To anyone who was anticipating more posts right away, I apologize.

Once I am back on campus, I’ll have my laptop looked at.  In the meantime, any help or suggestions relating to this issue would be greatly appreciated.

  1. I have a friend that has had the same problem on 3 separate laptops. The fan or something connected to it could have failed. That is usually a sign that it is about to give up the ghost. If you find it is a different issue, let me know, so I can pass it along.
