Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
If your computer has seen its time close to a blanket or anything else that can give off particles of lint and dust, and yes this means levis...then you need to do a cleaning. a good way to tell if it needs to be a major or minor clean is to look at the vents. you will feel the hot air, or used to be when your computer was on. This hot air exit needs to be free of all blockage.
Note to those who dont know laptops are not supposed to be used on your lap. they should be used on a TV tray or something so the air can flow better. ever notice were the manfactures put the intake and out puts of the fans? its not good for you or the computer.
in this illistration I wont show you the tear apart of the c300 but you can find it here. http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00753552.pdf
Ill show you a client whom has a dog and lets say a blanket.....and Ill show you a computer that overheats. I use a Q tip to clean out betweeen the fins of the fan. you can then **** it up with a vacume. If you do decide to use compressed air or canned air make sure that you have a vacume going so it doesnt just transfer teh dust into the sir for you to breathe.
notice this top right hand side of the below photo? there are 3 pressure hooks, and one screw that have to be, screwed and leaverd off. or pried. I used a small screwdriver, but becareful as you will slip off of it. dont have a hand or something in the way from when you do slip so that you dont impair yourself. make note on how many screws you take out, and if your missing some which ones they are. you will have generally 2 piles. or 2 length of screws. the 12 and the 4 they both will be 2.54 x 12 and so on this is metric and represents millimeeters.
and the last one with it all clean! reassemble and PLEASE use static precautions! ground yourself at all times. and dont touch chips or internal anything that is black. and of course unplug it you silly.
