    ** I know this isnt a Windows 7 related issue but i didnt know where else to post it, sorry!! **

    Im having issues with a laptop. When i switch it on the fan doesnt start at all (it use to) but it wil boot up as normal but after 2 or 3 minutes it starts beeping then cuts out. I have no idea what is causing this does anyone else?

    I would appreciate any and all suggestions,

    Thanks in advance.

    Sounds like there is either a fault with the wiring inside, or there is a load of dust that's jammed the fan from spinning. of course i could be wrong, and i'm only guessing.

    My advise would be to take the laptop back to where you purchased it, so they can assess what's causing the failures you're experiencing.
