Laptop Overheating

Q: Laptop Overheating

I was playing c.s go yesterday when I started noticing the fps's were dropping to 20, when usually its at 100, so because its summer I remembered to check the pc temps, and I got these:
when im browsing internet:
CPU: 63C
GPU: 61C
MotherBoard: 55C
Fan speed: 1920 rpm
When I start playing some game (c.s G for example):
CPU: 90C
GPU: 88C
MotherBoard: 80C

My CPU is: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3630QM CPU @ 2.40GHZ

Question is, the thing that's making me lose fps's is the heat right? And if yes any ideas how to fix it?

Heat will cause a number of issues including system slow downs and reboots. 1) Do you have your laptop in a well ventilated place? 2) Are your vent openings clear of dust? 3) Are you running this on a good laptop cooler (please tell me you are)?

A:Overheating Laptop

The key is the flying dust. I suspect the cooling fan and surrounding area has gotten clogged up and the laptop needs to be opened and the heatsink reseated and new thermal compound applied. Post back if we can help with a Manual and/or videos.

This is totally a noob question but...

I have a Dell Lat. e6400 and is noticing alot of overheating when I play games. At first I thought it was the programs on my cpu taken up too much space. I have an external hard drive where I saved all my programs too now and I have 106 free of 149 so I'm not understanding what the issue is. Oh yeah my OS is Vista Business 32bit.. I read on a Dell forum that it could possibly be the Intel chipset driver and there is very limited support for the problem.. I would greatly appreciate if I can get some help with this thanks..

games can make PC heat up

make sure all the vents on the laptop are clean - maybe a vacuum cleaner and blow out the vents

perhaps a laptop cooler pad - link to a shooping list of products

Hi,

I've been stumped on this for awhile now. I have a custom built HP pavillion dv6000 laptop
and its been freezing up for no reason lately. its about a month old. i've also noticed it gets super hot when it does this.

would anyone know of a solution to this. i figured it would be hardware related like needing a good cooling system.

also i'm running win vista. on a intel core duo proccessor.

any help would be appreciated.

I'm using a Hp Pavillion G7 laptop and my temperature is rather high:
While browsing :70
While gaming : 85-93 °C
I noticed these temperatures a month ago so i decided to open her up and change the heat paste(click here and clean the fans etc. (followed this youtube video click here
When I gamed the next day the highest temperature I reached was 66°C, so I was a happy little camper. Now just a short while later It is back to 85-90 degrees.
Ambient temp between 20-25°C, air intake is free, fan seems to be working correct (how can I check if this really is the case?)
What is the most probable reason?

I got a Acer laptop and I know the cooling fan has been busted a while, I have been using a chiller pad single fan, but it still is overheating...well at least to the touch... I did also have a small fan blowing over the keyboard too but that has also burnt out due to it being overused..... I know there is a temp alarm software, I seen the links for it here, but I cant find it..... I am getting a chiller pad 2 fan tommorrow from ebay 1 dollar 1.60 shipping, but it wont be here for 3 to 4 weeks....

After this conversion I will open up my laptop and see if it needs cleaning..... If so I will do that, I dont have the canned air sio I will use my own air........BLOW HARD....
See if that helps. If someone can send me the link to the core temp software it will be appreciated....

I have a 17" toshiba laptop that overheats sometimes. Is there any kind of a tester I can use on the cords to see if something is wrong with one of them? Or the plugs in the house?

It seems to be picky about when it happens. My mom uses it so I don't have access to it all the time to tell.

The grates on the bottom look dusty so as soon as I get some canned air I'll try to blow them. If the case removes easily, I'll probably try that too. I don't really like peeling onions. Laptops are nasty creatures to pull apart. I'd rather not if I can help it.

And no, it's not under warranty.

Thanks

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) to check the temps. If it is overheating there are a few things you can do to clean the isides that will lower the temps.

Hi, can't comment on Win 10 installing itself.

So block it if you don't want it.
If you don't want it, block the prompt (research offers ways).
Here's one idea.. there are others around on the net.
Get Windows 10 Icon - Remove from Taskbar in Windows 7 and 8.1 - Windows 10 Forums

Bear in mind many users don't experience what you're seeing as overheating. On the other hand, there are threads here about high CPU use related to e.g. system and compressed memory that affects some hardware/driver combinations. But these usually don't mention overheating.

How to complain.
Not here.. this forum is users helping users- and we've had plenty of our own issues.
Try Windows feedback from within Win 10 (E.g. Windows key + ?)
But you will prefer a Microsoft forum to sound off.
windows 10 - Microsoft TechNet Search

Possible causes:
a. Your laptop is not fully compatible with Win 10 and low level ACPI drivers e.g. aren't affording you normal the heat management control.
b. Sthg installed that is not compatible with Win 10 that is using lots of CPU time. I.e you updated not clean installed.
(Note- you haven't provided a task manager screenshot or commented on which processes are using lots of CPU time so no-one will comment on that- I guess you're not wanting that anyway- just no Win 10).
c. When I first installed Win 10 on an older laptop, I found Defender was burning CPU time. Also another process under appmodel sthg like tiledataapps (can't recall). Took a while to deal with that.

(Don't ask me why Win 10 may have been offered if your laptop isn't fully compatible.. which may not be the case anyway).

Hi folks,

I've got a Gateway laptop, had it for about a year and it's been great, overall.

Lately, though, I've been noticing a problem with the machine overheating and eventually shutting itself down - this happens both when it is running on the battery and when it is plugged in.

This only happens when I'm trying to do something fairly resource-consuming, such as run a Spybot scan or start up a new game of Football Manager...although with the specs of the machine, it should be able to handle both those tasks easily.

So I'm really at a loss as to what I can do to help deal with this problem, and any help would be much appreciated.
 

A:Laptop overheating?

It may be as easy as cleaning out the vents and fans on it. Compressed air does the job pretty well, you can buy canned air to do it. Ty blowing out any dust from all the vents and see if it helps.

A:Laptop overheating

Well, I'm no hardware expert but if its "too hot to touch" or close then I would say thats too hot. Have you cleaned the vents lately? (canned air) Yes , persistent high temp.'s WILL damage your system components.

Any number of programs/applications will check your temp.'s.......

Download Core Temp 0.99.8.0 / 1.0 RC4 Free - A compact, no fuss, small footprint program that monitors CPU core temperature - Softpedia

Download SpeedFan 4.47 / 4.48 Beta 6 Free - A small application that shows you fan speed, voltage and chip temperature - Softpedia

Download Speccy 1.20.446 Free - An advanced System Information tool for your PC - Softpedia

Download and run one (or more if you like) of these and post back the temperature readings and we'll go from there.

You may , with that dual cpu set up , need a cooling pad. They come in all flavors so picking one is about personal choice. Heres a few:http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...ds=cooling+pad

Hi all,

I work on a DELL laptop. It sends out very heat air from its vents. I think probably there is some (or large amount of) dust on hardware devices inside it.
I know that best way is to open it and clean those pieces by (say) an air compressor, but there are two points here:
1- Do you agree that this warm air is because of the dust and I need to solve this issue by cleaning the hardware snips?
2- I haven't opened any laptop ever, I somewhat scare (because that laptop is not mine). Do you still say me to do it? If so, what rules I should observe before, when and after opening the laptop?

Thanks.

A:Laptop overheating

Hi Kurdman. Me too a Dell user. Dell was good at laptops. But now it has failed to cope up with the development that other brands like Lenovo, ASUS has made. It has a decade old heat sink design. Also it has poor fan speed controls which rushes up and comes down unreasonably. I had debated a lot with dell care at Twitter and over phone too. I got fed up with thier response that "Use your laptop at clean environment. Keep less ambient temperature." They add that 'we are ready to help' at the end. But my phone call is not gonna impact thier cooling policy with laptops.

Now answer to your question.
1 - Yes dust build up could cause less airflow to the vents causing thermal energy accumulation.
2 - If you are not sure, never do that. Get a compressed air can or a blower (with air intake filter), blow in through vent back and forth for sufficient time for dust to exit. Too much air pressure could cause fan bearing to fail, so keep sufficient distance while using blower.

Also note that you are feeling hot air exiting the laptop means "the processor is cooling, heat is removed, not its is getting hot". Unless you feel any hot spots over your keyboard, touchpad or arm-rest, you are good to go.

Thanks.

My asus F3T laptop seems to be overheating alot lately. Anytime I play medieval total war 2 it will overheat and switch itself off around 20 minutes in.

I downloaded speedfan and saw that all the temperatures were pretty high even on idle. When playing a memory intensive game the temperature would shoot through the roof. Especially the core temp which went above 100c.

Had this laptop for about a year now and not had anything like this happen before.

I think it might be because of dust accumalating in the fan but im not too sure.

Ive stuck a fan to blow directly on my laptop to cool it down a bit and it seems to have worked a little, the core temp has gone down a fair bit. But I dont know if I want to be constantly blowing a fan against it.

Do you think I should open it up and give it a good dust out?

I'm guessing the warranty would be voided if it were to be opened, right?

My laptop starts to overheat quickly when I begin browsing, but if I reboot, it cools down just as fast. Then work offline for awhile without any heat, but if I get back online and browse, it starts to heat up again. Reboot, cools back down. And so on. Cleared cache, browsing history over and over, shutdown, powerup. Lightly blew air around vents, etc. This just started couple days ago. Never a single problem with this laptop. Only happens when accessing internet. Use my own Jetpack for access. Newer model lenovo. Any theories?

Hello misago mate follow this
CLEANING A LAPTOP FAN & COOLER RAD
The thing you do is to turn over the laptop and shine a very bright light into the air intake aperture (you will see the fan there) and then while doing that look at the outlet vent on the end of the laptop you should see the light quite clearly shining through the cooling " radiator" if not - it is clogged and will need cleaning as will probably the fan opening.
You can do this by blowing it out using a compressed air can in short bursts.
BUT ONE WORD OF WARNING DO NOT blow the air into the fan opening without inserting say a plastic rod or large cable tie to stop the fan from spinning as the air blast will spin the fan at a very high speed that it is not designed to take and may wreck the bearing!!
To clean the slots in the radiator use a pipe cleaner or one of those craft covered wire sticks - they are referred to as chenille sticks - see pic. But do be very careful not to be overly heavy handed you will find it might take a second or two or a few minutes to clear the heavier build ups.

I've been having problems recently where my laptop cuts out whenever I play 3D games. Having ran and logged both CPU and GPU temps it seems that the CPU is the issue, which is weird as it would appear the GPU isn't heating up much at all - I just played a game where the CPU temp of both cores reached a high of/exceeded 100c, yet my GPU topped off at 96 and was generally in the low 70s.

Surely my GPU should be bearing most of the brunt while gaming?

I have an Acer Aspire 5050 laptop (about a year old) that will sometimes shut down on me after running for some time. I'm a truck driver and use it primarily for GPS navigation while on the road. So, shutting down at certain times can be problematic. I notice that the underside of the laptop appears to be quite warm after shutting down and so I assume that's what's going on.

Two questions...Is the overheating causing it to shut down and is there any damage being done to the pc when it does?

Try blowing ALL the dust out of the fans and vents with canned air. That's a primary reason for laptops to overheat. Next, you need to check Task Manager and see if you have malware that is keeping the processor running 100%.

I have a hp dv6t 2000, running windows 7 64 bit, with an intel i7 1.6 GHz processor, 6 GB of ram and the nvidia geforce gt 230m graphics card. The CPU maxes out whenever videos and even music is played. I usually have an external monitor plugged into the the vga port and sometimes I have to just unplug the external monitor and the cpu winds down. Even recently my cpu maxes out without the external monitor plugged in and video playing. There is no ventilation problems with where the computer is located. About a year ago when I started using the external monitor, I could use as many applications as I wanted to. The laptop is a little over 2 years old. Any suggestions?

A:Overheating laptop

Canned air for blowing out dust is an obvious thing to suggest, but the fact your CPU maxes out isn't right - so there's some kind of corruption or malware present.

Anti-virus deep scan, malwarebytes ditto, and System File Checker are all prudent steps.

A:Help With Laptop CPU Overheating!

180 F is about 82 C, which is quite hot, but not at the critical level. Laptops are rarely cool.

Do you get the same temp readings from multiple temperature-reading programs?

If those temps are accurate, I would expect the fan to run non-stop.

Do you know if your fan RPMs are higher than they have been historically?

Laptops have small fans. Small fans have to spin at high RPM to do anything worthwhile. Is the fan noise louder than it was 6 months ago or 2 years ago?

What is "Windows 7 Manager"?

I seriously doubt the fan running at high speed is causing any significant amount of heat.

Is the high heat a recent development? If so, your fan may be failing and not able to cool as it had done before. If not, the fan be in good shape and just reacting to heat as you would want it to do.

Hi all,

I work on a DELL laptop. It sends out very heat air from its vents. I think probably there is some (or large amount of) dust on hardware devices inside it.
I know that best way is to open it and clean those pieces by (say) an air compressor, but there are two points here:
1- Do you agree that this warm air is because of the dust and I need to solve this issue by cleaning the hardware snips?
2- I haven't opened any laptop ever, I somewhat scare (because that laptop is not mine). Do you still say me to do it? If so, what rules I should observe before, when and after opening the laptop?

Thanks.

UNfortunately opening a laptop is not as easy as a desktop/tower & since I too have a similiar problem with my VAIO laptop, I'd suggest getting a can of compressed air , opening up whatever access on the bottom & spray the canned air in. OR, if you can afford it, take it to a shop.
Once its cleaned out, you might get a clip-on fan to keep it cool.



I've used such & it worked great. Good luck.

A:Laptop Overheating?????

Try sticking some small rubber feet on the rear corners to elevate the back about 1/4". I've done this for my HP multi-media dual-core machine, and it does help the cooling quite a bit. Also, you could look into a laptop cooler, basically a platform with a couple of fans that move more air through the machine.

Often times I will be typing or in the process of opening a new window when my laptop will lag and I will have to wait at least 30 seconds for it to get back to normal. The fan will get louder during this time which makes me think the laptop is overheating. Thoughts? Isn't there a piece of software that monitors your computer's overheating?
 

A:Is my laptop overheating?

yes you can get software to monitor the overheating - however, when a laptop is working opening pages and things often the fan will run to cool down the CPU

blow out the vents around you laptop - you should see where the air is sucked in and blown out - often a good clean will help if its a overheating issue

Make model of laptop and then advice can be given re software

a lot of Laptops will give a warning message on the screen its overheating I know compaq and Hp do

A:Is my laptop overheating?

175 F is 79 C

125 F is 52 C

52 C shouldn't be an issue for extended periods.

79 C is within the design limit of the CPU, but still quite hot. Whether it will noticeably shorten the life of your laptop is unknown. Your laptop could drop dead even at low temps. Laptops are not the right tool for hard core gaming, but that's no secret. It's a tool, like a screwdriver or anything else. Use it as you see fit and be prepared to replace it if it breaks.

A:Overheating? HP Laptop

When you say it's overheating, does the laptop shutdown? or lock up? and if it's running a 100% cpu usage. What service is running at 100%, you should be able to go in and click on that process and shut it down. It could be some form of spyware or a program that has a bad file that won't shut down. If nothing like that works. You might try backing up your data and running full recovery on the system.

Hello Willisme1. Welcome to the forum.

I'm sure you will get lots of advice about buying a new laptop here from others, but as for your overheating laptop - that is most often cause by dust clogging the heatsink and vents. Have you cleaned it?

Also check the heatsink fan to be sure it is blowing. These do start to fail after some time.

A:Laptop Overheating issues

1. Use A Hard Surface
First up, you should always place your laptop on a hard surface. That helps the fans circulate in the laptop. If you have your laptop placed on a soft surface (e.g. a fur carpet) the circulation is not as good and it will tend to get warm very fast.

2. Use A Laptop Cooling Stand
The next way to cool down your laptop is to use a laptop cooling stand. These days, you can buy laptop cooling stands quite cheaply and these contain fans which help to cool your laptop immensely. They also encourage better posture by forcing you to use your laptop more ergonomically.

3. Turn Down The Display Brightness
The display screen on your laptop generates quite a bit of heat. You will want to turn down the brightness if you are in a dark place, so as to cut down the heat generation. Turning down the brightness also allows you to conserve battery power.

4. Move To A Cooler Place
An obvious way to cool down your laptop is to move to a cooler place. If you're sitting in the hot sun typing on the laptop, the machine ain't gonna stay too cool, now is it? Move to an air-conditioned room or cafe and cool the machine down.

5. Turn On Power Saver Mode
Most laptops these days have a 'power saver' mode which you should invoke if the laptop gets too hot. The power saving modes usually turn down the display brightness and spin down the hard drives if the machine is idle for a fixed period of time.

6. Close Some Applications
If you open many applications on our laptop, these will generate heat as well. With more open applications, the laptop's CPU has to work harder, resulting in more heat generated. Hence, by closing down some un-needed apps, you will cool your laptop down.

7. Remove Some USB Devices
USB ports are a well-known heat generator. The more USB devices you have connected to your laptop, the more heat it will generate. Plug out the un-needed USB devices and your machine will start to cool down. For more

You could give SpeedFan a try, I use it to read CPU/GPU temperatures, and it's supposed to be able to control fan speeds also, although I haven't been able to use that feature on my laptop.

hey i recently installed a Samsung spin point 1tb hard-drive in my R610.
the problems started when i left it running on a bench in the kitchen overnight. in the morning i woke up and felt like a game of fear 2. i lifted the screen and found the message "boot from CD ROM....
no operating system found."
i took the laptop to the warranty store. they all found nothing wrong with it. i continued my use of my laptop. it started getting really hot, then the same message after another night on the table.

i eventually compared the two hard drives and found that the spin point draws 5v and 0.85A and the old sea-gate drew 5v and 0.47A could this increase in amps be the cause of this?
Any advice would help!

A:Laptop psu overheating R610

Have you put your old hard drive back in to see if the fault occurs with that?

It could also be a hard drive fault, that occurs when it gets hot, would certainly explain the boot issue.

An under powered PSU would cause issues when the whole system boots, as everything is drawing power. Is it just at idle when left on over night? Or doing something overly taxing?

Just saw some discussion of win 7 and overheating and wondered what do most of you all use a plain external cooling pad or something else? Laptops. Im sure someone is going to suggest Liquid nitrogen but seriously

A:Laptop Overheating what do you use to cool

I use a USB powered fan pad at home. For a while, I had it attached with double-sided sticky pads, but removed it when I determined it wasn't really that effective.

Keep the fan vent clean and keep the fan clean. On some laptops, the dust will form what Marines call "ghost turds" that will accumulate inside the case, blocking the ventilation path on the board side of the airflow. Inserting canned air will not address this problem.

I have disassembled many a laptop and found this, solving the overheating problem in the short-term. I have also opened laptops and found dead roach colonies. Both services bill at $75.

I have a compaq r3000z laptop purchased in 2004, last year i started noticing it to randomly power down under intense cpu loads (audio encoding, games, so on). I am assuming its a heat problem since right now at idle, my cpu is at 64 C and when it shuts down its hitting close to 90 C. Also at about the time it started happening, i had to replace the lcd inverter, but im not sure if it was happening before or not.

The processor is a Athlon 64 3000+ running at 1.8 ghz. The two cpu fans are working fine, and i have cleaned them with canned air. The problem still persists though. I have done driver and upgrades and all to no avail.

Wondering if there is anything i can do? its annoying that i cant do anything cpu intensive.
 

A:laptop overheating issues

okay did a little bit more thorough cleaning of the fans and heatsink. Took out some fairly large dust bunnies. Now its its idling at around 55 C and peaking at 85 on full cpu load, so its getting better. One thing i did notice was that when the fans kick in the air it blows out is not that hot. Can anyone tell me how I could reset the heatsink?

I just cleaned my laptop and it released a lot of dust, so my temperature is lower. The weather is currently very, very, very hot and my laptop is running 55-60C normally when i browse the internet, in a very hot room. Before i cleaned it - it was very hotter. I'm even sweating and i don't wear a shirt. But that's not the point. I i am running prime95 to test the processor, and after 1 minute of 100% usage it gets to 90C in the hot room again. But when i go to a clearly cold room, it doesn't turn off, it barely reaches 80-85C but never the maximum 90C. Oh, you have my laptop details. So my question is, are the fans not spinning correctly or is the room temperature really important for a laptop? Thanks.
 

A:Laptop overheating question

Ambient air temps have a huge effect on how hot your hardware will get and the tiny little fans in the case probably cannot move enough air. That's the way it is.

I've upgraded my girlfriends acer laptop with extra Ram, but since then its been running too hot and keeps overheating. I've tried turning all the performance settings down but it hasn't helped very much. Is there a safe way to change the fan settings to prevent the laptop overheating, and if so how do I do it? Or should I just buy a heat-absorbing mat, as I've heard they are quite good. Thanks for any help. If all else fails I can just take the RAM out again, but I'd rather not except as a last resort...

I have a 2 years old Lenovo Ideapad Y550 laptop. For some months, its fan is very noisy! Now I cannot play any 3D games because this laptop shuts down after 10 or 15 min when playing 3D games. Now I can only can do my work like browsing, word etc but no gaming at all! I remember when my computer shuts down the bottom of the laptop is very very hot. So my questions is 'Is it a overheating issue? If it is then how can I fix it?'

A:Laptop overheating issue?

YES it is probably a heat issue. If the fan is load it is either from a bad bearing in the fan, or blocked passages.

If it is not under warranty and you feel comfotable doing this carefully use compressed air to blow out the intake and exhaust ducts on the laptop.

You could also buy a cooling pad (good ones drop the temp 10-20F)

To be sure it is a heat issue download CPUID (free)

Hello, I am having trouble with my one year old Gateway laptop Model M-6834. When the computer gets hot, the cooling fan turns on. However, it runs high speed making loud whining noises and alternates from high to low speed, but hardly any air is blown out the side. After awhile the computer shuts itself down. I have removed all the dust from the fan and heat sink, still same problem. Do you have any suggestions on what can be causing this and how to fix it? Is it possible it is a faulty fan even though the fan is turning on?

Thank you for your assistance, I would love to have my laptop running again.

If its only 4 months old you need to call or chat with MSI, you want this problem addressed under warranty because off warranty it can be very expensive to fix.

Hi and welcome to TSG.

Can you hear the fan ? If not check that you connected it's power lead correctly.

Also check that you put the heatsink on properly and tightened the screws.
How much thermal compound did you put on ? A thin layer on top of the Cpu is all you need.

A:New Samsung laptop overheating!

I'm guessing that something is using a lot of your CPU. So next time it starts to happen, right click on your task bar and choose "Start Task Manager". Then click the tab "Processes", that'll give you a list of all the processes running and how much CPU they're using and their memory usage.

System Idle Process is expected to be high as it registers percentage of time your processor is idle.

try compressed air through all the vents and grill to blow any dust out. Also make sure it`s not on anything cloth like a blanket, as that can sometimes get in the way of the cooling from underneath.

and when i play games or browse the web the temp reaches to maximum even +105c for the whole system,
that is as hot as hell..............
can anyone suggest how can i repair it. i generally leave space beneath by notebooks air vents to let air in

i am a bit amazed that i never encountered a BSOD or even a drop in the performance at that temp. Once i recorded the highest system temp to be 115C with HWmonitor and HWinfo.

In all honesty if there is not a large ammount of dust, and you are running a cooler pad. I would contact the manufacturer. They may have seen the issue before, or you may have a fan or sensor that has gone bad. Start with them, and see what they have to say, then let us know

A:Laptop Shutting Down/Overheating

Best thing to do re remove the bottom cover of the laptop, as well as the keyboard and blow the entire case out with air duster. The little fan on the bottom of your laptop is likly clogged with dust.

If you want to do a really good job, get some rubbing alcohol and a few q-tips and clean anything that might have dust on it. keep in mind that you should unplug your laptop and remove the battery before you start to take apart the laptop.

There is a light bulb in the Smithsonian Institute made by Thomas Edison that is still burning bright today Light bulbs today burn out easily Why They are designed that way on purpose so the light bulb makers can make more money The same thing is happening with your laptop What's the biggest problem with laptops It's overheating Why do they overheat - bad design on purpose That's the conspiracy and I can prove it Over to conspiracy and it what overheating do Laptop about the years I have owned many laptops and they all have one common flaw - no matter the make or Laptop overheating conspiracy and what to do about it model - Not enough airflow Couple this with very bad advice I saw a video yesterday on cleaning the laptop it made me laugh then cry because people were being shafted They tell you to clean the unit by wiping down it's keyboard and surfaces then use a can of air to blow out the dust in the fan - from the outside Laptop overheating conspiracy and what to do about it in These videos are popular on the net and they are made by the same people who sell the cans of air and by the laptop people This is the WRONG way to clean a laptop They know this and tell you to do this on purpose thinking this will pacify laptop users who don't know any better What this actually does is help to destroy your laptop faster so you have to buy another Laptop overheating conspiracy and what to do about it one Over time the laptop builds up dust that clogs the fan blades and vents Blowing it out with air from the outside in is bad because all this does is force that dust deeper into the laptop Sure the dust gets away from the fan for a time but after a couple of years you open up the unit and see all the dust surrounding your other laptop components because that dust has no where to go some will leave through the vents but not all in fact you are spraying air from outside in - in the direction away from those vents This leads to the precious chips components getting hotter and causing damage - even though your fan and vents may be clear The laptop makers Know this they study these things so they can make more money But why does it happen at all Laptop feet are way too small - on EVERY unit you will Ever see This does not allow for proper airflow prove it to yourself at Best Buy I have done this for kicks and to annoy the salesmen LOL Go to best buy or other computer store and have them set up two identical laptops side by side Install a program called Core Temp on each which measures the heat in your laptop Core Temp I will slightly modify one of the models and the temp will always stay between and degrees cooler than the unmodified laptop Of course everyone is shocked What do I do I place liter bottle caps under each corner of the laptop That's all Now you get much better airflow All it takes is raising the laptop of an inch further off the table top The laptop makers Know this - they are killing your laptop slowly on purpose So how to properly clean a laptop If you feel comfortable download the service manual for your model and follow it to take apart your laptop to clean it properly If you do not feel comfortable take it to someone who does - just make sure they do it properly and do Not use any can of air This coupled with using bottle caps at the corners will help your laptop last years longer than it's intended to

A:Laptop overheating conspiracy and what to do about it

Believe you me, I have studied planned obsolescence and know all about it from an engineering standpoint and how today's engineers are forced to do things like that. There's a nice informative video on Youtube about it called "The Light Bulb Conspiracy":



I don't believe that planned obsolescence is too much a part of computers or laptops, however.

Really, the only thing that makes them fail for the most part is bad electrolytic capacitors (besides abuse such as power spikes, etc..). This is why that when you pay any decent amount for a motherboard or video card, they now come with Polymer (solid-state, no liquid) caps.

They tell people to use compressed air because most are not tech. enough to open and clean. Compressed air is much, much better than nothing at all, over time.

Toshiba Satellite Laptop - A105-S2101
Model no. PSAA5U-01300Q

When I leave the laptop on all day in the evening hours it shuts itself off and is really hot. I turn it in the morning hours then it acts up around 8pm hour.
 

A:Laptop overheating issues

Firstly do u use it on ur bed or on a sofa as it will not be able to breath propaly as the fans underneath ... also u could buy some compressed air and spray any dust out also make sure the fan is spinning to help keep it cool and if u feel comfortable maybe open up to clean all dust out where fan is

Ok so I've had my laptop for close to 2 years now and just around last year my laptop starter getting really noisy and really hot but my laptop still ran pretty fast. Now moving to just alittle short of a week ago my laptop still tending to get really loud and hot but the thing now is my laptop is starting to act slow for example it takes forever for me to get on a internet page and even once i get on it tends to freeze up for a short time every once and awhile, and if i close my laptop up and re open it it gets even slower so im constantly restarting my laptop.... I just don't know what to do im horrible with technological things so if anyone could help figure out how to make my lap top becoem fast again and not so noisy it would mean alot!

A:Does overheating cause slow down of laptop?

Hi, Heat will definitely slow the machine down and it can shut itself down to protect the CPU. More noise is due to the fan must work very hard. Freezing is just the beginning of more serious problem. Please try the following suggestions to keep your laptop runs cooler:    http://www.wikihow.com/Keep-Your-Laptop-from-Overheating   http://www.pcworld.com/article/2039789/cool-down-an-overheated-laptop.html Regards.
