Tips for Preventing Laptops from Overheating

You must have noticed that your laptop getting hotter and hotter when you touch it after leaving it on for a few hours this is because laptop's fans are netorious for collecting dirt, dust, and other chemicals in the air. So here   are some tips and tricks that help you to cut down heat issues and keep your laptop breathing better.
  • Put your laptop on a cooling rack (like the ones for baking). This alone allows your laptop's bottom to breath better and circulate air flow in a more effective manner.
  • Use a can of air on your vents every few months or so. This will help to expell out the dust and prevent dirt from clogging up the inside of your computer.
  • Don't leave your laptop on a bed or couch. Because the laptop sinks in to the bed, the ventilation system can't do it's job and keep the laptop cool enough to operate.
  • Durring high pollen seasons, limit the time you use your laptop outdoors. These particles are nasty and clog up systems faster than anything else.
  • Avoid smoking near computers. This will cause nicoteine build up on your fans and burn them out. And a burnt out fan disables your computers ability to keep it self cool.
  • Consider investing in a USB powered laptop cooler. 
  • Put your computer into standby when your not using it. The less the computer is on, the less heat it will generate and prevent it from over heating.

Avoiding risk factors can keep your laptop in great shape and around for many more years to come!
