My name is Patrick Russell and I'm currently majoring in electrical engineering. I also plan on getting a minor in mathematics as well. I'm currently studying physics and electrical engineering courses. After I complete spring quarter I will have been here for exactly one year. I'm hoping to graduate in two years after this spring quarter. If I choose to get a different minor besides mathematics I could end up being at eastern for longer. Some skills that I have that might be valuable is my writing skills and engineering background when it comes to taking apart the device. I’m also very familiar with the process of troubleshooting from my time spent at Perry Technical Institute, where I was learning the trade of HVAC. The only experience that I have really with repairs is I help my friend fix cars occasionally when I go back home to Tri-cities. This will help benefit the project because it will help with the overall understanding of how to troubleshoot a device correctly and the process to fix it. It will also help me better understand how to covey instructions in a manner that makes sense to the readers.
Answer to "Why is my laptop so hot to the touch?"Your laptop can become overheated due to a faulty fan or your cooling fans could be clogged by dirt or dust. First make sure that your using your laptop of a flat surface and not carpet, pillows, or blankets. Then take canned air and blow out the vents around the case to clear any dust or dirt that is clogging the airflow. If that still doesn't help try disconnecting your ac charger or run it on the charger without the battery for a while. If your computer continues to shut down after prolonged use then you could have a faulty fan. If you are still having trouble refer to our troubleshooting page to better help diagnose the problem. Below I provided a link to a website where you can purchase a new fan. https://www.cartcafe.in/samsung-n150-n150p-laptop-cpu-heatsink-cooling-fan-price-online-india
Answer to "Do I have a defective battery and is it replaceable?"First you need to determine if you have a defective battery or a bad outlet/charger. Check that your charge lights are on when your charger is plugged into your laptop. If your charge lights are not on and you computer shows no sign of powering on you could be using a faulty outlet or your charger is broken. Once you get your charge light to come along with your laptop but it only holds a charge for a short period or suddenly turns off then you could have a dead battery.
