My laptop overheats and shuts down after a while if I don't switch the fan on but when I startup I can see my desktop and everything works.

By leaving the fan off you are allowing the CPU to overheat, this will lead to damage of it.

 

I would strongly suggest leaving the fan on.


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

If your refering to me Arachibutyrophobia I switch the fan on after its started up, I've checked the BIOS but I can't see any options to have it on all the time.

 

Last year I decided to remove all screws from the covers and dedust it all but I couldn't get it apart without using force which would have probably broken something.

The XPU fan should be running as soon as the computer is started.

 

How are you turning the fan on?

Well its a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li 1818 and there is a button with a picture of a fan on it next to the power button. You press it and you can hear the fan either switch on or speed up, maybe this is the Silent Mode switch. If I don't press this switch and I'm using alot of apps then it just shuts down without warning..

Fan is probably wore off, you would need replace fan from amazon or computer repair serve.  

 

Also turn off silent mode, it is not safe feature.

Sorry for the late reply I fixed the overheating problem. I took the bottom cover off and removed the copper cooling strip to the CPU. I noticed there was a sponge strip in between the fan and the radiator. It wasn't matted hair and dust why they need to filter air going out of the laptop beats me.

 

Speccy before 83 °C with silent fan on:

I ran a few programs to get it working harder.
Speccy after 65 °C without silent fan on:

2 months later it won't boot up. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/513736/vista-laptop-wont-boot-up/

 

So I'm stuck with lousy Windows 8 on my new laptop.
