Question about Computers & Internet
If you clean your computer's vents and case fans using an air duster (can of compressed air) you may see an improvement in performance, but please keep in mind that this may not necessarily resolve the issue.
Ideally, you'd be able to open the case and dust every square inch of the laptop, but this isn't always an option for many users who are still covered by the factory warranty. Should you choose to use an air duster, remember to hold the can at least 6-8 inches away from the surface being dusted, as the compressed air may leave liquid residue behind or even freeze some surfaces.
Blocked vents and failing hardware components have also been known to cause laptops to overheat (in addition to prolonged use of video cards by various games), so should cleaning your laptop fail to resolve the problem, you may wish to speak with your local repair facility for further assistance.
If necessary, you may always bring your laptop into your local Best Buy™ store for more information. Best Buy™ technicians are able to perform repairs on most major products we sell, and can provide service options under most manufacturer warranties.
Hope this helps you out.
