Cool Down An Overheated Laptop

Cool Down An Overheated Laptop

A hot computer is a bad computer. Excess heat can cause malfunctions and crashes, and permanently damage your hardware. And although laptops generally put out less heat than desktops (energy efficiency is a higher design priority), they have their own unique problems. They’re rarely as well ventilated as a desktop, and much more difficult to clean.

Whenever your laptop is on, make sure that nothing blocks the vents (which are probably on the sides). Don’t put the PC on a pillow or a soft mattress, where it’s likely to sink in and get blocked. And never, ever put your laptop in a bag unless it’s off, hybernated, or in sleep mode.
