Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
To reduce the effect of the heat in a laptop, a fan and heat exchanging grill are attached to the CPU. The fan pulls air into the laptop from the bottom and blows it out the back. This produces a vacuum under the laptop and draws dust into the laptop which can clog the fins of the heat exchanger. After a while, usually just as the warranty runs out, it will start shutting down, locking up or any number of other things that are not good. A really good cleaning of the fan and fins are required.
TIP: Blow the dust from the fan and fins. To reduce the dust collection, Tape a coffee filter over the fan opening on bottom of the laptop. This will reduce the dust and can be easily changed when needed, and it's cheap.
