Tell me about overheating - PC Laptops


Answers :

Overheating is generally cause by a clogged or dirty cooling fan. To clean the fan out I generally use some compressed air and a vacuum. Simply locate the cooling fan output on the outside of your laptop (usually on the left or right side of your laptop and sometimes the intake part of the fan is on the underside of the laptop). Once you locate the input and output of your fan turn off the laptop and blow the compressed air into the input and output and for extra cleaning I always take the hose of my vacuum and vacuum both input and output ports of the laptop. If you want to go deeper into the laptop and clean it on the inside here are several sites that can help you get into your laptop safely and easier (I assume no responsibility for any damage that you may cause to your laptop)

Overheating is a bad problem. All electronic devices create heat, it is a byproduct of resistance to the electrical flow. Many methods are used to combat it, from Fans to heat-sinks to special gel filled packs. Most devices operate "Hot" and a certain amount of heat is to be expected and designed for, indeed we have an "Operating Temperature" however it is the "Excess" heat we try to remove. Also, when a device heats up and cools down it is subject to "Thermal Shock" or, whereby, as all things heat up they expand, and when they cool, they contract, this repeated cycle, can & will, cause devices internals to "Fracture" just like when you bend a piece of metal backwards and forwards until it snaps, same principle. . Also too high a temperature over a long period will cause the device to simply fail. Also most devices will/should have temperature shutdown circuitry, that will shut off power to the device, when & if the temperature rises beyond a certain point. generally you can never have it too cool. So really anything that is done to remove heat and cool things down is only of benefit.
