Cool down an overheated laptop

A hot computer is a bad computer. Excess heat can cause malfunctions and crashes, and permanently damage your hardware. And although laptops generally put out less heat than desktops (energy efficiency is a higher design priority), they have their own unique problems. They’re rarely as well ventilated as a desktop, and much more difficult to clean.Laqptop Heating Issue

Keeping a laptop cool is all about ventilation. If the hot air can’t escape, you’re going to have a problem.

Whenever your laptop is on, make sure that nothing blocks the vents (which are probably on the sides). Don’t put the PC on a pillow or a soft mattress, where it’s likely to sink in and get blocked.

And never, ever put your laptop in a bag unless it’s off, hybernated, or in sleep mode.

You’ll rarely find vents at the bottom of a laptop, yet heat tends to accumulate there. If the bottom is hot to the touch, consider buying a laptop cooler–a pad that goes under the laptop and whisks away the heat. Many of them have fans. Prices range from about 300 rs. to 700rs. I’m not going to recommend a particular model because I don’t use one. At least for my laptop, an empty but sturdy cardboard box is sufficient.

If you let dust accumulate in a PC, you’re bound to have problems. And you’ll have to fix those problems with a good cleaning.

Marco Chiappetta described the cleaning process in You’re a dirty, dirty, dusty PC. But he used a desktop, and desktop PCs are designed for easy user maintenance.

Laptops are trickier. You can try using a can of compressed air (I bought one recently for $4) to blow the dust away from the vents. But that’s a very limited solution. The dust may get away from the vent, but it’s still inside the PC.

Try this: Shut down the laptop and turn it over. Examine the bottom. You’ll likely find panels that can be removed with a small screwdriver. Open them up and see what you get access to. If you see dust, clean it away with compressed air.SPU Fan dust issue solve

 

 

 

Unfortunately, the real dust problem may be in places that require a more complicated dismantling. If you feel comfortable taking apart a laptop, go ahead. Otherwise, you may want to take it to a professional.

Thanks to Shanti Laptop service and the excellent service provided by Mr. Kishore ji, a very much knowledgable and honest man. I would recommend this shop as the first point of contact for any laptop or desktop repair in Mumbai. The repair process here is transparent and time saving, because my laptop was checked on the spot at the first time of my visit itself and that too each and every components were examined in front of me and the issue was resolved in a single visit. When other laptop repair shops including the authorized Asus service centre said that the motherboard cannot be repaired upon and needs to be changed, Kishore ji patiently examined my laptop and repaired the issue without having the need for changing the motherboard and that too within an hour, thanks to his expertise. The price of the parts are also very much affordable here. Thank you Kishore ji for making my day great. Your work speaks volumes of the kind of man you are – efficient, organized and result-oriented.
