Dell Inspiron 1100 No Display - Overheating Issues
Christian | September 16, 2005 8:49 PM Dell sent my a new heat sink assembly since I didn't want to lose my computer to them for 5-10 days. my cpu is stuck to my heatsink and i am wondering if it asolutely necessary to seperate the two. Thank you again. PS: Was in at dell for a new fan 6 months prior so I would reccomend giving it a shot of compressed air atleast every 6 months to keep things cool useful reference
DO NOT PLACE THE LAPTOP IN A FRIDGE OR FREEZER, as this may damage components (not to mention contaminate food). Ask a question and give support. I also recommend making the icons smaller: http://www.liberiangeek.net/2012/06/resize-unity-2d-launcher-in-ubuntu-12-04-precise-pangolin/ After all this, you should now be able to reboot into your nicely working Ubuntu installation. I suppose what I'm saying is that Dell is pretty much correct.
Lately, my Dell Inspiron 1100 has been nothing but a waffle iron giving my leg a burn. (Seriously, it couldn't run Starcraft without sounding like a vacuum cleaner) So I googled I tried the cpu reseating a few times already and i just don't know... My 17-month-old Inspiron 1100 died in June 2005. When removing the processor FAN assembly You have to make sure you do NOT touch the copper tubing on the thermal cooling system OILS from your hand will cause the copper
With my cool pad on and fan speed on high and CPU load at 100% the CPU temperature topped out at 161 deg F (That is about 72 deg C). Enjoy! When I was trying to remove heatsink from cpu I almost break pins(legs) of cpu (My advise is: change cpu socket position to open when you try to remove hatsink). I repeated process several times and swapped the ram modules based on your suggestion, but no luck now.
Thanks, Bill Yaacov | August 22, 2005 10:45 PM Follow up to my previous post. My old NEC did this as well 10 years ago. However, I didn't start using the laptop daily until last summer. I bought my Inspiron 1100 for a total of 850, I don't know how much yours cost, but 1000 dollars to replace the motherboard is worth more than the whole thing.
This will most likely be the last Dell I will ever buy. Take Action It's time to speak out for your right to repair Dear Nebraskans, This year, the people of Nebraskans have a chance to guarantee their right to repair their equipment—like I even tried to put back the old heatsink. Next I cleaned cpu and heat sink surfeces with izoprophyl alcohol(high purity).
I ran a diagnotstic test for the fan and it gave me an error code: 3700:011B Msg: Expected fan on high rpm of 4600 ,Detected fan rpm = 0. It would idle in the 55-60C range with the fan on. it shuts down and will NOT startup. I feel overheating was the cause of the demise but Dell Tech Support told me a new mother board was needed...$400+.
Working like a champ. see here I figured that I would first try another route. I then ran the ... Any other advice?

posting this message on the fixed machine :) I had no need to seperate the cpu or add grease... Replaced and problem sorted. Since I'm a student I needed a local fix and since it isn't under warranty I brought it to a local shop.
When this happens, the laptop should be powered off, the battery removed, and the power supply unplugged from the outlet, and left to sit overnight in a warm room.
Can someone point me in the right direction to find that fan control software for the 8000/8100? Dirt or dust build up can cause them not to work as efficiently as they should.
