An overheating laptop is not uncommon.
When I got my first computer I was able to use it for a few months before its processor fan stopped working. As a result I started experiencing a lot of problems with my laptop and there are some periods I’ll be using it only for it to shut itself down in the middle of a project.
Having your laptop suffer from overheating issue can be really frustrating, especially if your business depends on it, and based on my experience with my overheating laptop I’ve been able to learn a few tips. The tips below will help you prevent your laptop from overheating.
Always use your laptop on a flat surface
I can remember vividly using my first laptop on the bed regularly. I believed since it is a laptop I can easily use it anywhere I please without any problems. Unknown to me I have been preventing fresh air to pass through to my laptop and as a result making it to overheat.
You can easily prevent your laptop from overheating by ensuring you only use it on a flat surface. Each laptop has been designed in a way to be used only on a flat surface and using your laptop on your mattress or on the top of your clothes can be very dangerous – even if you want to use your laptop on the floor, there is no need to place anything beneath it. You have nothing to worry about since it has been designed to be used on a flat surface.
Ensure it is completely shut down before putting it in a bag
Another mistake most people make especially when they are in a hurry is to put their laptop in a bag without shutting it down or without allowing it to shut down completely. Whenever your laptop is still running it is generating a particular amount of heat and it needs enough fresh air to neutralize that heat.
Placing your laptop in a bag without shutting it down only complicates things and prevents it from getting the fresh air that it needs, which might lead to overheating problems for it on the long run.
Always use it in a cool dry area
It is also very important for you to be careful with where you use your laptop computer. Heat is a very dangerous enemy to any computer so it is important to only use your laptop computer in a cool dry area. Your laptop generates enough heat already and you will be able to prevent it from overheating if you use it in a cool dry area.
