Hey I got a Dell SmartStep 200N that I bought about 3 years about. It's a P4 with 512MB ram. I got this issue with overheating in the rear where im guessing the processor is located. Basically whats going on is if I don't have my room fan blowing on the back of the computer, the computer just shuts down from overheating. When that happenes I feel under the computer and its bakin hot. I have a feeling that a fan is broken and is in need of repair. Can anyone tell me what I might be able to do before I have to perfom surgery on my labtop to get it back working.
