Laptops get heated up frequently. Some tips to reduce the heat from the laptop.


A laptop has become a common computing device in many houses. Laptops have the tendency to get heated up after every 2-3 hours, resulting in abrupt shutdown of the system. The heat also adversely affects the health of the user. Hence, it is necessary to cool the laptop and prevent it from getting overheated. Below are some tips for cooling the laptop. Hope these would be helpful.

1. Leave the back of the laptop empty. Do not put any electrical devices/switch boards behind it. Also, plug in the laptop only when needed.

2. Buy Laptop cooler pads or laptop mats which rest beneath the laptop. They work by either driving away the built-up heat or by blowing cool air towards the machine.

3. Change the power settings of your laptop to 'Power Saver' mode to manage the power more effectively and extend the battery life. There are also softwares and tools for laptop power management. Also, you can use the 'Sleep'feature, if the laptop has it.

4. Raise the back of the laptop a bit higher by making some small vertical device like a rectangular paper weight stand under it, so that heat passes out from beneath the laptop. Alternatively, place a small book under the laptop, so that heat get dissipated from the vents.

5. A Mini-aluminum camping table is available for keeping the laptop cool. You can also purchase a laptop stand or mount your laptop on a bakers rack for allowing air circulation.

6. Turn off applications that you do not need at start-up by deselecting the unnecessary Startup programs. [A list of the programs running at start up can be obtained by typing msconfig in the Run box.]

7. Blow short bursts of compressed air into the fan area of your laptop's processor to allow the hot air to escape. You can also periodically clean the laptop fan by removing the RAM cover and battery (after switching off the laptop). If needed, you can purchase a USB fan that can easily be plugged into the USB port of a laptop.

8. Keep the windows of the room open for some time during the evenings to let in cool air. Placing a pot (preferably an earthen pot) of water near to the laptop, spraying a coolant in the room, or working out in the open air also help in cooling the laptop.

9. You can control the speed of your laptop fan, by using applications like speedfan and SmcFanControl (for Mac computers), and thus prevent your laptop from overheating.

10. Keep a box of ice underneath the laptop. However, ensure that the outside of the box is dry.

Lastly, wash your face after about two hours of work on the laptop, so that your eyes do not get affected by the heat.
