An overheated laptop causes a number of problems: fans run too fast and make too much noise, it is doubtful to put your arms over it for play or write, and it can even shut down due to the heat. Below we will see what you can do to solve these alarming heat issues.
Clean the external dirt from the laptop
The first thing you should do is clean the laptop up remove possible plugs from your airspace. In this case, it is important to use a compressed air spray, fix the air conditioner and use it there and not in the shops (the dirt will come out when it comes out).
When doing this, keep in mind that if done correctly, a lot of dirt will appear on the produced laptop sheets, so place a rag (close, not sticky) or other material to prevent everything from getting dirty. You can also apply compressed air to the exhaust grille afterwards, and return to the inert grilles to try to prevent the dirt from getting inside. Take a chance and clean the entire exterior with a microfiber cloth.
Use a cooling foundation
Laptops often have rubber "legs" that keep the laptop from rotating a lot, lifting it up a few millimeters to allow airforce installation on some of its lower-end devices. However, this space is often limited, so adding a cooling base is often very helpful to improve the temperature.
It may seem silly, but the use of a refrigerator can boost the laptop's temperature up to 10ºC.
Change the hot paste and clean the laptop inside
Now comes the tricky part, and keep in mind that in most cases you do this warranty warranty from the manufacturer, so we recommend that you do not do so if you are inexperienced or if your laptop is under warranty. In any case, do it under your obligation.
- Screwdrivers (usually Philips and some Torx bookmarks).
- Attach the burner.
- Micro fiber fabric.
- Compressed air pressure.
You will obviously need both screwdrivers to remove the lower lid of the laptop and to remove its heatsink. The type will depend on your laptop and the type of screw you use, so it's never affected to find out screwdriver is set including all shapes and sizes.
If you intend to convert you have hot spots obviously you will also have to buy this compound. It is inexpensive and has many different designs and models available, but we recommend that you do not focus on and buy high quality, since one does not perform this procedure very often (in a few cases in the life of a laptop).
In the end, you'll also need a cleaning cloth and compressed air, as the laptop is too hot, the aluminum wings on the heatsinks or the fans themselves may be blocked.
Clean the laptop and clean it inside
Removing the lower cover of the laptop is usually much easier. Flip it over to reach the bottom, remove all the screws you see and apply a little pressure on the cover to remove it. In some bookmarks it costs less and you will need to help yourself with extra scarves or, for example, a card size card or similar.
Once the bottom cover is removed, you will be able to reach the fans or the fans (which are almost the same kind of blower as the one you see in the picture above), and if you don't want to change the hot paste, by removing the cover you can clean yourself with compressed air and cloth
In fact, even if you are going to change the hot paste it is something you have to do, to work with things that are already clean. If your laptop is too hot, it probably has a lot of filth inside.
Change the hot paste
The first thing to do is to remove the entire cooling system from the laptop, and the first step is to turn off the fans. In all cases, each fan will have a cable connected to the motherboard, so you have to look at where it is and remove it. Remember exactly where and when it was taken, and if you want to take a picture, you will know how it is connected.
There are laptops where fans are attached to the cooling system, but usually not. You will have to remove between one and three screws and you can remove it (giving you access to clean it completely at that time). When removing fans, be sure to also clean the bottom and bottom and dirt often accumulates there.
Once this is done, it's time to unpack the heatsink. Usually you will have a series of laptop-based screws, but they can range from only 4 (in a processor socket) depending on their size, depending on the laptop that has provided the graphics and heatsink size in question. Take a good look, take pictures if necessary
Keep in mind that it will take you a while to remove the heatsink because it will be "stuck" with hot glue and hot pads or after removing all the sticks. Don't worry, you pull it tight but gently and you'll come out. After this, you can continue to completely clean the heatsink, the fans and the area where they were installed.
Now you have to clean the residue of hot paste to the CPU and GPU and to the heatsink itself. There is some liquid for this, but if you don't have one, you can use isopropyl alcohol and some toilet paper. They should be clean and neat.
Once this is done, it's time to apply the hot paste. Apply both GPU and CPU grain to hot wrap in the center of the die, and leave it there. When installing a heatsink, that grain of rice will spread across the surface. In the case of laptops, as there is no IHS, nothing happens when you put in some extra hot glue, but be careful not to overdo it.
This is done, now you have to reassemble everything. Carefully place the heatsink by matching all the holes and replacing them. Re-install the fan or fans we previously removed and remember to reconnect them. Everything is already plugged in and clicked in, place the cover below and fold it back in.
We are done with this. If your laptop is too hot, changing the heat attachment and cleaning it properly inside and out is one of the best things you can do to improve the temperature.
