Specs: Windows XP
When I switch my laptop on the fan doesn't work and after about 20 miniutes it gets very hot and switches itself off. If I then switch it back on the fan works and all works fine until the next time I switch it on. Anybody any ideas please?

Take the fan out. Clean & Lubricate it. In most fans there is a small adhesive label over the bearing and you can carefully lift that to place a small drop of light machine oil. Or replace the fan
