overheating laptop

The cost of Laptops is decreasing on the other hand power of laptops is increasing day by day. This is a golden age for laptops, making it possible to find gaming laptops that are both high end and affordable. However with a increase in demand from slimmer laptops everyone has experienced an overheating of laptop.

As quality cooling systems need space and that today’s laptops just can’t afford. At the very least, an overheating laptop is hot and uncomfortable to the touch. At the worst, an overheating laptop will destroy your computer from the inside out and you can even loose your data.

Here we try to explain everything you need to know about how to tell if your laptop is overheating and some simple solutions to keep it cool.

1) Know your Laptop Structure

How will you know that your laptop is overheating?  Different laptop builds, styles, weight and design can affects how warm the laptop feels. A laptop isn’t necessarily overheating because it feels hot, and it isn’t necessarily not overheating because it feels cool. The only way to tell what’s really happening is to track the internal temperature.

There are plenty of free and easy programs available to track the temperature of your computer. I personally use Real Temp as it is very easy to use. You may find lot of other free-wares as well to track this thing.

Since Now you are able to track your computers temperature, you need to know what temperatures push your laptop into overheating zone. Laptops generally run hot, so don’t worry if you see temperature above room temperature. However, if you see temperatures 85 degrees Celsius or higher it’s a danger zone.

2) Lift Your Laptop

If your laptop is overheating give your laptop a bit of lift this will allow airflow all around them and help in remaining cool. In  most laptops rubber pads on the bottom are there to naturally give them a bit of lift. It’s also important to put your laptop on a flat surface like table so you can make use of these pads.

If your laptop is still running hot, then the first thing to try is to give your laptop a bit of additional lift.

3) Blow The Dust

This solution is required little bit of technical skills than the Lift solution, but it’s still a piece of cake. A cute little fan is fitted inside your laptop to cooling that do their damnedest to blow hot air out the rear of your laptop. But try as they might, time wears a heavy toll on these little fans. They build up gunk and dust and whatever else finds its way inside your laptop over years of use. Cleaning all that junk off will make them fresh as the day they were born. You can blow air on it by using air guns

4) Buy Cooling Pads

A simple solution, so long as you’re willing to spend little bit of money. Overheating laptops is very much common problem today, there is an entire industry of laptop cooling pads. So many brands are available to choose from. All of them will lift your laptop a bit, and most of them even have a USB fans for cooling airflow.

5) Check Mini Fan

In some cases its been observed that due to heating laptops gets off automatically after some time of work this time may vary from 5 mins to 60 mins. But if laptop is getting powered off automatically u need to check it internal fan. It might be chocked with dust but in some cases it is seen it stops working and even after cleaning fan wont work at all or moves at very slow speed. In this case you need to change its fan. If you are little bit technical you can Google how to open laptop fan for your particular model and change yourself else please visit nearest Laptop repair shop.

How To Increase Laptop Battery Backup

Laptop Battery Backup

We are on the move more than ever these days. While we now have laptops as powerful as modern desktop PCs. Five years ago, battery power technology does not seem like progressing the fastest time. Traveling with technology continues to be an ongoing battle against life’s everlasting flight from the laptop battery.
If your laptop battery is running in a vacuum, here are eight easy steps to last longer.

1) Lets Change Your Laptop Screen Brightness

Like Mobile phone, a good amount of your laptop’s battery power is used for lighting the screen. The more brighter the screen is, the more battery power is used from the battery. So reducing little bit brightness of screen can go a long ways towards making your laptop battery last longer.
In most laptops keyboards have this function to adjust screen brightness. Look and hold the “Fn” key (function key) and look for brightness symbol on the top line of keyboard. This may vary by make and model.

2) Stop Unnecessary startup Background Programs

When Your computer starts lot of programs open ups automatically every time since they are listed in startup. Some of these are necessary, but some of these programs you’d never not required every time or every day. No matter how much you use them, they’re all eating up battery power as long as their open. You can check this in task Manager under process and find unwanted programs and if you don’t want the program longer please uninstall them from control panel.If you might require them in future please clear them from startup either from MSCONFIG or from task manager this will help and you should immediately notice increased battery performance.

3) Put Your Laptop Into Sleep Or Standby When Not In Use

it’s very common to step away from your laptop for a few minutes. However, the laptop screen is still on and all the programs are still running during these few minutes. Even though you’re not physically doing anything on the laptop, it’s still consuming as much battery power as if you were.
So when you decide to walk away for a moment, please hit Start Menu > Power > Sleep/Standby. Its just takes a second, your computer still start back up immediately when you come back, everything you were working on will still be there, and your battery will thank you for the rest.You can also configure this in power options under control panel to put computer on sleep when it is idle for 3 or 5 mins.

4) Put Your Laptop Into Hibernate If You’re Stepping Away For Longer

If you know you’ll be away from the laptop for longer and you don’t want to shut it down put your laptop on hibernate this will save even more battery power than sleep/standby.You can do this by the same way; press the Start Menu > Power > Hibernate. Just like the Sleep , all your work and pages will still be there when you get back.

5) Unplug Any USB Device That Isn’t In Use

People often never think about, but maintaining that USB connection uses resources from your Laptop. So whenever you are not using any USB Device like USB flash drive, wireless mouse, or Wi-Fi receiver, please unplug it and this will save some energy on your battery.

6) Turn Off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Connections

If you’re not actively using your Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connection by disabling these connections you can save a lot of battery power . If you leave them active, they’ll constantly be searching for available signals they can connect to. And that search takes energy.
