Overheatsor Turns Off
Computer Is Overheating
Computers generate a lot of heat. If your desktop or laptop is overheating, it could be damaging internal components and you won’t know it until it’s too late. An overheating computer could simply be getting much hotter than it used to, or it may even be shutting down. Common overheating problems include your laptop shutting down after 15-20 minutes of use, or turning off when you try to watch videos or perform other graphics intensive processes. If this happens too often or the problem goes on unsolved, your graphics chip may burn out and your computer will turn into an expensive paperweight. Don’t let this happen! Let us help! Here are a few notes about how we address overheating laptops:
- Your fan is the likely culprit – The fan is the only moving part in charge of cooling your laptop. If the laptop is overheating, this is the first place you should look. Whether the fan needs to be cleaned or replaced, we can help!
- Thermal paste may need to be reapplied – Your computer transfers heat from the CPU/GPU through the heat sink and out of your laptop. Thermal paste allows the heat to transfer properly, but occasionally the thermal paste may dry up! If this is the case, we can help!
- Heat stroke kills – Don’t let your laptop become a victim of the heat. If you’re having heat issues with your laptop, let us help before it’s too late!
