Havn't got the laptop to hand (is at work). It will remain on for about 30 mins, It idles at 50c. Not too sure how old the laptop is will be able to find that out for you on monday. Ive tried reseating the heatsink but that didn't do much.

Bump :)

does it hold battery?
apart form the overheatin any other issues?
#10
is it used for general office or is the laptop stressed with gaming graphic when overheating occurs

It runs ok but it gets very hot and eventually shuts down. If you run a stress test on the CPU it shuts down. It idles at 50c fine though.

Not sure about the battery. Will let you know on Monday though.

Im guessing that if you have the competence to reseat the heatsink you will have checked, but do the fans both run?

I have a presario cq50 thats just started over heating madly, one of the fans has gone ...

Yup checked the fans. I think there's a problem with the heatsink however I'm not to sure so it could be anything. Cheers for the tip though :thumbsup:

Hey,

Forgot to add, the wifi card doesn't work either however I would of thought thats an easy fix.
banned#22
in that case i will offer you £ 50 as it will need sorting out before i use it.

Cant accept that as I doubt it will cost that much to get the wifi fixed.

You could just use a usb wireless adaptor
banned#24
then i am sorry but i will withdraw the offer, as my bloke might get me a deal on a laptop what does not have a few things wrong with it.

plus i do not like the sound of it being sold as seen sorry.

good luck selling it as £50 was my best offer but i will withdraw thank you.

Yup, original :)
#28
so what exactly have you done when you opened it?

and how long does it stay on before tuning of?
#29

Removed old thermal paste, cleaned then reapplied new thermal paste. Im guessing it's either a fan problem or it needs a new heatsink.
#30
hmm. can offer £55 delivered for it then. seems to be the going price on ebay for faulty ones.

Well, I managed to install vista on it however it gets very hot. The side of the keyboard (doesn't affect the keyboard at all) plastic bezel (really hard to explain) is not secured properly. I could see if i could fix this on monday and will take a picture of it on monday (I think its missing a screw).
#34
my offer of £55 is still here if that issue is not too serious and just needs a screw or watever.

also does it overheat and switch of after using it for a fair bit or isit straight after switching it on?

Ok, well I will let you know about the case problem. I will see about your second question on monday however I have left it idling for a couple of hours and it wasn't turned off when i came back.

EDIT, I can accept £50 + £10 postage? Will be sent on monday
#36
sorry £55 is my max as im really taking a risk plus have to change wifi card etc.

just want to confirm that everything else is functional apart from the overheating and wifi?

Sorry no post first.

I will PM you my address and paypal details but please remember you buy as seen and no refunds/returns.

Paying me tomorrow morning is fine, however I'm willing to hold on payment until monday when I can run some diagnostics on it to check everything else is working fine. (however will not send until payment is recieved).

I do have a vista cd however I cannot provide a key or anything. The laptop has a liscense for vista home premium (OEM) on the bottom of the laptop and also think it has a recovery partition.

Cheers

EDIT: Sorry dude786! Will let you know if the deal falls through though.
