Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

As soon as i go online after about 1 hour my emachine w340ua starts to overheat and disconnects itself from the internet and so far all that helps is turning it off and setting it by a fan so it cools down. Why does this happen? The computer is fine and does not overheat unless it is connected to the internet so i have no idea what is wrong with it. Please help me. Thanks!!


Answers :

Using the internet uses a lot of power. The computer has to work harder than normal so the fans are not cooling as much as they would under normal use. My ASUS computer heats up the harder it has to work. Maybe your emachine although able to connect is not really designed for the amount of usage you do. An hour is a long time for some devices. Small computers like the ASUS laptop can only tolerate about an hour and then they heat up so much you can hardly keep them on your lap. You may risk burning something out. I would limit your time with this device and only use a stronger system for the longer time on the internet.
