How to Prevent Overheating of laptop

Overheating can be caused by higher than normal temperatures. Overheating of the laptops occurs when they are running continuously, so the cause of the overheating is the operation of the laptops.

What causes the laptop to overheat?

Everyone knows that laptops need the power to operate: their internal components are powered by an electrical outlet or a built-in battery. The power of each laptop depends on the processor, central and graphic. This causes the laptop to overheat because part of the electrical current flowing through the processor chip is converted into heat as a result of the resistance. Early processors and laptops were so insignificantly cooled that they did not need cooling. As the chips increased in power and performance, it was necessary to keep the temperature regime at a certain level to prevent the chip or the surrounding elements from being destroyed.

How do you cool a laptop?

Cooling a laptop is similar to the operation of water heating: there is a boiler that generates heat (the processor), to provide this heat using tubes (in laptops and other electronic devices – heat pipes), and also heat sinks – batteries and radiators (laptops also use radiators). The airflow generated by a fan (cooler) is used for faster cooling of the heat sinks.

Why does my laptop overheat?

The laptop cooling system is built with one goal in mind: to prevent overheating. But sometimes it fails in its task and there are the following reasons for this:

    Dusty grid

    Fan dust

    Fan bearing wear

    Broken fan blades

    Heat pipe deformation (pressure drop)

    Heat conductive paste and dry rubbers.

Each of these causes can also lead to overheating.

Effect of overheating

Various acts or omissions by the user may result in prolonged excessive operating temperatures. Improper cleaning may cause damage to the

    Computer Processor (CPU)

    Graphical Processing Unit (GPU)


Replacing these components can cost 4 to 10 times more than cleaning your laptop.

How do you prevent overheating?

Avoid spending money on expensive repairs that are not necessary, follow these simple tips to prevent overheating.

Tip #1 Cleaning

Clean your home or office regularly. Wet cleaning reduces the amount of dust in the room. The slightest presence of dust will not interfere with the laptop’s cooling system.

Tip 2 – Cooling pad

If possible, avoid a cooling pad – this creates an additional airflow of dust, which clogs the laptop’s interior with dust, hair, and other “debris” in the air.

Tip #3 Regular cleaning

Cars need regular maintenance, the human body should be checked regularly. Digital technology also needs regular maintenance. So clean your laptop regularly to avoid the dust surrounding around laptop cooling system.
