Hi, just a few days ago my laptop started to hum and lag a lot. This usually starts about 10-15 minutes prior to turning on my laptop, when the vent by my AC Adapter slot starts to blow out some air, and hums and making my laptop lag majorly, about 1FPS. My ram is 2gig, and I have a 512MB Geforce Nvidia Video card, could someone help me please? My laptop is a DELL.

It sounds like a heat issue, purchase a can of inert air and blow out the vents. If you can provide me with the model of that Dell I will see what I can find in the way of instructions to access the inside of the case so that it can be blown out properly.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I had a spare can of inert air, it seemed to stop the humming and the lag, Thanks!
