Good Eveneing,

Im looking for a bit of help with my d1845.

When i try to switch on the pc the on/off button does not seem to work untill i press it 50 plus times. I have checked the switch and everthing seems fine. The system seems to over heat a lot too. Can you recommennd any advice ?


Regards

If you clean your fan and the ventilation slots, your notebook should run cooler.

The problem with your power button may have different reasons:
The powerboard or even the mainboard may be defective. If this is the case, only an exchange will help.
But maybe it is only the contact, that is corroded or distorted. Maybe you can fix it by cleaning the contact or fold it into the correct position. To do this you will have to open the case, what may be difficult or even dangerous to your hardware if you do not take care of ESD.

Hi Paul

have you tried removing the switch panel cover, which would let you try using the power micro- switch manually ? It may be that the cover panel is slightly raised, and the power button isn't making contact with the micro-switch. It is normal for this model to get very hot, especially around the hdd area.
