How do I know? Its fan has been telling me loudly and repeatedly so that lasts all week. If you are in the same hot boat, here are 10 ways to cool your laptop.
Find a hard, flat surface
First things first. Where are you keeping your laptop? If it is on a soft surface like your bed or is located between you and a pillow, then you are doing it wrong. Find a hard, flat surface. This will help maintain good air flow. The floor is not ideal as it tends to collect dust particles more easily. And contrary to what its name is, your lap is also not the most optimal place to put your laptop. Along the same lines, do not block the vent with decorative stickers or other paraphernalia. Also try to work in a quiet room and whatever you do, do not keep your laptop in direct sunlight or in the car.
Leave clear Dunn bunnies
One reason for overheated laptops is dust. There are various ways to address this. The simplest is to purchase a can of compressed air and spray it into the vents in quick, short bursts. Make sure that your machine is shut down and unplugged before doing so. You can use a cotton swab to clean any visible dust or suck it up using a computer vacuum. Another option is that you can open your panels and reach your fans directly. Just be careful with sensitive components. Opening your laptop's panel may also void your warranty. Of which, if you have one, have a look at your device from the manufacturer. And while you're at it, don't forget to clean your heatsink, card slot, CD / DVD drive and other dust-affected areas.
Buy a stand ...
There are many different types of laptop stands. Some, for example, come with fans; Not others. Some have cushions and some do not. Do your research and fulfill your needs. My colleagues Stephen Williams and Sonia Jhajinski outline some options.
... or make one
If you are on a budget or clever (or both), always D.I.Y. way. Options run the gamut from using beverage bottle tops to refrigerated ice packs for an $ 8 aluminum variety stand. The books don't work, but are apparently cookie sheets.
Check and enter your settings
Make sure your laptop is set to handle a heavy graphics load. Gamer and movie watchers, this applies especially to you. At the same time, if your software works fine, do not update it unnecessarily. The goal is to reduce the workload of your machine. If your BIOS settings were recently updated, for example, and your fan starts acting soon, you can try to restore them. Unplugging the USB-powered devices, while reducing the brightness of your screen and turning off useless apps that hijack CPU time will also help reduce cool things. Last, make sure your power-management settings are properly activated.
You do it to measure fever. The same goes for your laptop. Speed fan is an event you will get.
You can put a permanent fan near your laptop to provide it with cool air, but you might be better off with extra fans and coolers for your graphics card and hard drive.
Different laptops have different fans. Your nature may be loud so don't assume that an active fan is a sign of an overheating problem. However, if your laptop starts to freeze or crash frequently, these can be signs of impending meltdown.
Give it a rest
If you have a desktop and a laptop, divide your time between the two. Do not sleep / hibernate / shutdown every other minute. If you have logged on to check your e-mail, then leave your laptop to shut down as soon as possible, especially if you can use it again after that day. Your laptop - and more than that a netbook - may not be able to take as much abuse as your desktop, so treat it carefully.https://brentekcomputer.com/
