I learned something a while back and it is that all laptop makers knowingly make laptops to run hot then break. I believe this because just by simply
making the laptop feet higher, your laptop can stay 20 degrees cooler at a minimum (I'm using F not C)
I taped 4, 2 liter bottle caps to the bottom of my laptop and took the measurements. I then repeated this on many laptops, including going into Best
Buy and doing it in on new on display laptops in front of the sales people - all with the same results no matter who's laptop I tested. LOL
The facts are even with my trick, after a couple of years all laptops need to be cleaned properly and the thermal paste on the processors and heat
Never blow canned air into your laptop ! This is one of the worst things you can do and it Will lead to other heat related problems because the dirt
and dust just stays in the laptop, but gets pushed around - this causes it to accumulate in tight places where it acts as insulation. The laptop must
be physically disassembled and cleaned gently.
Most laptop makers will offer a service guide that will tell you how to take it apart and rebuild it. Most of the time these guides can be found on
the websites for free download. Note, this is Not the same as the user manual.
If your unit is out of warranty, you can do this cleaning and replace the thermal paste yourself. Here is a thread I created to help folks when they
replace the thermal paste. www.eightforums.com...
It is vitally important when you disassemble and clean your laptop that you also disassemble and clean the fan completely. This includes the fan, and
heat sink fins. You must remove the fan to get to these fins. many folks only replace the fan and wonder why it didn't help much - thats because there
is dust that gets clogged in the tiny heat sink fins - you need sonething like a flat toothpick to get in there and clean them good - if you like, use
the canned air to help blow it out then reassemble everything. Sometimes a flat toothpick is to thick and you need to cut a thin piece of paper to do
