Does your laptop get hot?

If your laptop is getting uncomfortably hot, the fan is making a lot of noise or your laptop is randomly shutting down this could be a sign that your laptop is overheating.


This could be a number of things but usually it is dust in the heat sink inlet and fan. At Tewkesbury Computers we repair a number of these a week the dust forms to a felt like substance and blocks off the air but normally when this happens the laptop will shut down. So no one here can really answer your question because it has to be examined by a repairer to really know what the fault is.

One of the most common issues with ageing laptops is overheating, something many people are not sure how to fix. We’ll help you figure out what’s causing the heat and how to keep your notebook functioning at a lower temperature.

You might not even know that it’s the root of your issues, and before you know it you have a burnt-out motherboard on your hands. Let’s go step by and step and see how to deal with overheating computers. We’ll be dealing primarily with laptops, but most of the same principles apply to desktops as well.
