Feeling random...?

Or are you just one of those people who don't make any sense anyway...?

Well our upstairs AC went out. Perfect when it's 100°

Oof. I guess smaller plug-in fans aren't as common there as they are here (no AC), but it's the only way I survived the other day. I felt so unwell by the end of the night and I hadn't even gone out in the sun.

I've since spent £140 on another fan, three different handheld fans, and a few other cooling items. :/

What are the issues, Joey?


The fan has been running constantly and the battery couldn't last more than 40 minutes. IT people kept telling me there's technically nothing wrong with it, so they can't help. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I did a factory reset as a last resort (the shop refused to do one :s). That + keeping the front half off the edge of my desk has made it significantly more useable for the time being, but I think I'll still end up having to get another soon.

Luckily out downstairs ac is good and if that stops, we have places to go. Darren was sweating like a whore in church 5 minutes into his nap when I realized that there was no way it would work. His camera says it's 88° degrees upstairs. It feels hotter than that though

Hi Joey!

Long message, but I posted it here as maybe Joe, or Jeff or someone with more knowledge might tell me I'm totally wrong and stop you from doing any of my suggestions below.... (not mine.. I made certain I had a search reply to back me up on these!)

You wrote in answer to Lisa's query:

Made it clear to me... you don't need a whole new laptop!

Lets try some things suggested in these links below my suggestions...

1. Check your power management settings!

Method if you do not know how:

and right click on "battery" icon on lower task bar to the right

and should see "power options"

Check battery power management settings...they could have been changed by an update that you didn't touch anything to do that

Tell us what plan you have selected (even if you didn't make the selection, there must be one!)

2. Clean your vents!
Dell and others say to use can of compressed air, but most people don't have that lying around waiting to use... so in a pinch try vacuum cleaner.

A simple vacuum cleaner won't harm it if you use the brush attachment for cloth furniture and brush over the vent openings while computer is OFF!!

First though: If you physically SEE dirt caught in the vent(s), before you vacuum, try removing it gently first with a toothpick so you don't accidentally push it inside with vacuuming.

3. After checking your power management... in Step 1 above, it might show your battery is not running effectively...
Your IT guys should have suggested you can buy a replacement battery, brand new (I hope your laptop is not as old as mine which needs same thing, but I'm running balanced power output, so its still reading ok, but I know its over 12 years old! Whew!)

In the Dell video, it says to remove the battery.....

Good time when battery is removed to write down the battery number: [usually "BB" or something clear like that with numbers after letters "Batt" etc,] so you can look it up and see how much that costs vs a whole new computer!

4. The HP (Hewlett Packard) question I included as you did say in an earlier post that your computer "fixed" the problem, but then it came back and I recall you made a face: : /

So that reminded me I've heard about that occurring.. and the HP answer had something about it, but its complicated and I'm certain you don't have "thermal paste" lying around... but again I have more questions for you than you answered in your posts, so I just made the search and provided the links for you or your IT people to get some ideas and see if any make sense!

Good luck!

Yeah, it was a lot cooler today as well, Carl. It's 69° (nice) out and it feels like early fall already.

The new Teen Titans is complete shit. I miss the old one, and miss watching old cartoons to begin with.

Tornado hit my stinky county about an hour ago. One barn went down and a few trees down.

Tornados and straight line winds really aren't all that uncommon around here anymore. Seems like I'm hearing about a couple a year now. We had a bad storm a few weeks ago that had a lot of straight line wind damage. Completely took down the screen at the drive in one year too.

They are pretty rare around here. There was an insane storm a few months ago with 100+mph winds and a tornado never was confirmed.

And to make shit even funnier, people are sharing an article with a picture of a tornado that was from four years ago and is not even in my county, lmao. People will believe anything.

Supposedly an EF2.

Sometimes we get 15 minute rainstorms that do more damage than some hurricanes do. We also don't get a lot of tornadoes in my county. The next county above us does get them more often.
