My Sager 8880 had a heat problem-fans always onI figured out that the problem was because the heat sink had a 1/8" thick layer of dust/lint between the end of the heatsync and the fan. The dang thing was suffocating! This probably was what led to one of my 512 MB ram slots to burn up. I pulled out the heatsync and cleaned the dust off it, which fixed the fan/heat problem. Problem is it must have been hot for too long before I started to tinker, because only 1 of my ram slots were usable and when it finally died nearly a year ago (I got it in 2002), I sent it to Phillips (extended warranty). They had it for 2 months before they sent it to Sager, Sager had it for a month before they sent it back to me saying that there was "corrosion" on the motherboard and that it was not covered under the warranty. SO I had to eat a $3200 computer. Thankfully, Phillips did buy out the remainder of the service contract. The computer had no corrosion on the motherboard, except for evidence of high heat, it was just Sager's way of passing the buck.
