Incredible amount of developments in laptops over the last two years for increasing the performance, chips were heavily loaded with transistors, the hardware has been put into slimmer cases and with bigger screen having high resolution enabling graphic cards by the laptop manufactures. These improvements, however, come at a cost: laptop overheating .Laptop that runs hotter than what it was designed for can and usually will have impulsive failure of internal spares. Now it has become a challenge for the laptop users to maintain the smooth running of laptops.
Causes of laptop over heating:
- The problem often arises when you are using your laptop intensively in such a way that keep the CPU operating at high capacity and the hard drive and video systems are kept busy as well.
- Laptop overheating can arise due to unexplained shutdown of an operating laptop.
- Laptop overheating can develop when it’s kept under sunlight while working for longer time period of time.
- Poor designs of laptop structure may cause laptop overheating; it results in improper release of heat created by the CPU processor and fails to provide proper ventilation and cooling systems.
- If laptops are not cleansed out from dust & debris that might cause a problem of laptop heating up.
- Laptop overheating may arise if the RPMs (revolution per minute) cycle of the cooling fan lows down during normal operation.
Tips to prevent laptops from overheating:
Keep your laptop in hard and flat surface: If the laptop computer kept on an unequal exterior like a cover, bed sheets, or your lap, the circulation of air into the laptop computer is stressed. Therefore, the cooling is not ideal, heat creates up, the exterior becomes hot, the temperature of sucked in cooling air increases, and eventually the laptop overheats. It can be easily prevented by keeping the notebook computer on a hard and flat working exterior or else get a special laptop computer case or lap stand.
Proper shutdown of your laptop before placing into the carry case: To prevent overheating it’s very important that laptop should properly shut before placing it into a laptop case. Placing a laptop in a case when it’s under running mode would generate excessive heat would cause serious damages to the laptop internal parts. Even if you use standby mode, your work and settings are saved into memory so a laptop will generate some heat for it still needs to draw a small amount of power from the laptop battery. The simple solution to prevent , always turn your computer completely off, or you’re your laptop at hibernate mode because it puts our open documents and programs on your hard disk, and then turns off your laptop.
Remove dust from your Laptop: The first and most things you need to do when your notebook laptop is heating up, need to clean the fans that provide air cooling to the CPU and graphic card. Over time they develop up rust particles and dust that slows down the process of ventilation into the laptop. You need to take certain precautions before cleaning the dust particles from laptop.
- Proper shutdown of laptop
- Remove the battery from the laptop
- Unplug the power adaptor from the laptop.
Properly clean the fans with a natural cotton wool ball drizzled with a drop of isopropyl. Make sure the isopropyl has completely disappeared before you reconcile the laptop to the power. You can also use a vacuum cleaner to eliminate the dust particles over the fan. To avoid harm to the fan, do not let it center in the wrong direction.
Next, you need to clean the exhaust slot by drawing out air with a vacuum cleaner. The exhaust slot is the opening for getting the hot air out from the laptop.
Finally, you can apply fresh heat sink compound to the interface between the CPU and its heat sink.
If none of the hardware solutions result in changes, you can also revert to software fixes that shows the performance and power usage of your laptop or you can either decrease the perfection of your screen or decrease the CPU time speed.
