Laptop or notebook is considered as an important thing for many people. We always bring it anywhere we like for just some entertainment and personal work. Nowadays, tablet and smartphone is also available, but those devices are not enough on filing our needs and it lacks few things that doing many works harder. First, it does not have physical keyboard for fast typing. Well, typing in the touch panel is good for chatting and browsing, but not for working. Second is flexibility, it does not provide you the ability to access some accessories and device easier.
Even though laptop is a good product, after some years of usage you will find some annoying problems. The most annoying one is probably the heating issue. Sometimes we do not really know where it’s coming. It might be because of the component on the inside, battery and even because of too many dusts. You cannot tell specific reason before you make some diagnostic. There could be more than one reason for that case. I have good information that will tell you how to diagnose and fix it. To make it easier, lets we jump into the article.
Check Heat Transfer And Air Flow
Believe it or not, laptop will be full of dust for some reasons. The main reason is maybe because you are not placing it in good way. Similar like normal computer, laptop also needs proper treatment and good ventilation to expel the hot air. Now air flow means device is getting hotter and hotter because the air is stuck on the inside. Your first step, should find out where is the air vent is located and find out the condition.
Some of them are located on the back, but the most common one is probably under the bottom. Just turn on your device and you will start hear some noise from them. See if you find much airflow and if we are not finding them, there is huge chance much dust is stuck on the inside. On this case, you really need to blow it out by opening of the back cover. Just open it and use of compressed air to clean it. Make sure no dust is left and you are good to go.
Check For Bad Battery
You probably do not know that battery might become the source of problem. Normal battery will last for more than 2 or even 4 years depending on the usage. If you are on that life span, then need to manually swap it with the new one. Changing battery is really easy to be done and what you need here is only the replacement. Ebay and other online sites are your good choice and price is more expensive if we get it from service center.
To see if battery is good or not is simple, charge it to 100 % and see how long it goes. If you think battery last less than you know, then it’s a good change for swapping it. Remember to see your battery model before you decide to buy new one.
You also sometimes have to check the component on the inside and you might find persistent hardware issue there. HDD and other areas sometimes cause any heat without any major CPU load. Opening it would be tough, so its better to ask someone to do it if you could not handle it. There are many good videos on Youtube if you decide it to open it by your own. Remember opening it means you will lose your guarantee. So, make sure to give it to service center if you still have it.
The problem sometimes comes from our hardware, but there are some cases where software is becoming the true culprit on this case. Loading your Windows with too many apps is not such a good idea. Check the running app by opening task manager. Find any app that eats your system and then kill it. Uninstall it also recommended only if you think it useless. For prevent it, use some apps such as Ccleaner to limit your start up process.
Also check your system free from any malware that might slow down our computer. Just run a full or deep scan and let the application find the malware. That is what you can do if the hardware is not your problem. Hardware issue is rarely found on new notebook.
Any issue can come from many reasons. I just hope the information above is useful. Just leave any comment and suggestion below for some assistance. At last, thank you for reading our article and see you next time.
