Overly Hot Laptop

January 27th, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

I turn on my laptop and the fan starts to spin so fast, also my laptop gets so hot after a short period of time. I called the guy in customer service and he told me that is normal. He also says that laptops get hot and thats why the fan starts to work to cool it down ! Wow, I never knew what laptop fans are for 😉 Very informative phone conversation … I hung up!

I was not convinced so I decided to troubleshoot the issue myself. I opened up the case to have a peek. I noticed that there are so much dust around the fans. This doesn’t let the air to circulate well.

Before

Okay, it seems like someone has something to clean up.

After

I cleaned up the fan and surprisingly it fixed the problem. Yes, it is not a bad idea if sometimes you pick up the screw driver and try things out yourself.
