There are several steps you can take to fix laptop overheating:
Check the vents: Make sure that the vents on your laptop are not blocked by dust or any other debris. Use a can of compressed air to blow out any dust that may be clogging the vents.
Adjust power settings: Go to the power settings on your laptop and select a power plan that reduces the amount of power used by the processor. This will reduce the heat generated by your laptop.
Close unnecessary programs: Close any programs or windows that you are not currently using. This will reduce the load on your laptop’s processor, which in turn will reduce the amount of heat generated.
Elevate your laptop: Use a laptop cooling pad or stand to elevate your laptop off of a flat surface. This will increase airflow around the laptop and reduce the amount of heat generated.
Apply thermal paste: If your laptop is still overheating after trying the above steps, you may need to apply thermal paste to the processor. This will help transfer heat away from the processor and into the heatsink more efficiently.
Monitor temperature: Use a program like HWMonitor or SpeedFan to monitor your laptop’s temperature. If the temperature is consistently high, you may need to take more drastic measures like replacing the fan or heatsink.
It’s important to note that overheating can cause permanent damage to your laptop’s hardware, so it’s important to address the issue as soon as possible. If you’re not comfortable taking any of the above steps yourself, consider taking your laptop to Esmond Service Centre for repair and servicing.
