Question about Computers & Internet
My laptop overheats really quickly, and the fan on my laptop seems to be really noisy, not silent like most laptops nowadays are.
Is the fan broken? Or is my laptop just an old model. Is an extra cooling device a good idea?
What is the model number of your machine? Some have design flaws that make them run hot. Also dust is a great insulator. I would take the machine into a repair shop or get a can of compressed air and blow out any fan areas. A laptop cooling pad can be a good idea as well especially if you notice that the machine overheats while sitting on a desk. The noise of the fan is probalay due to the dust coating the heatsync. The fan has to run much faster to move more air to cool the system. Blowing out or having the heatsync cleaned is a good idea here!
