Laptops that produce excessive heat or overheat are really annoying. In addition to disrupting typing activities, of course, the hardware will be damaged quickly because it cannot bear extreme temperatures.
So what are the causes, Risks of Overheating Laptops, and solutions to this bad situation? Through this article, we will discuss further what the consequences are if the Laptop Temperature is too hot and dusty. Here comes the complete explanation from us especially for loyal CnwinTech readers.
DANGER! This is the Result When Laptop Temperature High and Dusty. Risks of Overheating Laptops.
Dust itself is fine, but because it is such a small object, it makes it easy to inhale it into a working laptop fan. Over time, the dust will increase and accumulate in the sidelines of the fan, on top of the heatsink, even clogging the ventilation holes so that cooling does not run normally. As a result? The processor temperature will increase. (Also read: The fact that dust can damage our computers?)
In short-term use, dust is not easy to see. But for long-term use, fine dust will accumulate and look very annoying.
Fatal Risk to Hardware
Cases like this cannot be tolerated. It’s not easy to identify dust that is lodged in a laptop, especially for laptops with patent bodies that are difficult to open. If not considered seriously, then hardware problems will easily arise. Overheating is indeed one of the classic problems that come with the long-term use of electronics and are quite a risk.
If left untreated, the processor fan cannot work optimally and the processor will overheat very easily. Trust me, the processor temperature can get high fast, faster than you can imagine. If so, the processor will signal the system to turn itself off to avoid worse overheating. If this condition is allowed to continue, it will undoubtedly spread to other hardware such as Hard Drives and RAM which will be easily errored and damaged.
Then what is the solution?
If the case of your laptop is easy to remove or take apart, then that’s a big advantage. The dust must have stuck to the fan and motherboard. If so, you only need to clean it with a dry cloth. For in-between fans, use air spray (compressed air) so that the dust is easily released. But keep in mind, use compressed air or air cans with care. Do not blow the fan too hard as this can damage the fan dynamo underneath.
What if the laptop case is difficult to open? Well, compressed air works fine here. You only need to shoot the air through the vent on the side of the laptop to open a clogged air gap. But it does require extra work to remove the dust that has gathered there because the space available is very narrow.
For compressed air, you can find it at the nearest hardware store, or you can find and buy it on our online store here. Another solution, use a compressor for motorized vehicles. It’s riskier, but if you can be careful, it’s worth a try too.
As a final step, you can use the Speedfan application to find out changes in temperature for each laptop component. Good luck! (Also read: How high your CPU temperature? Check before the CPU is overheating)
