Does your computer sound like it’s working overtime? Does it feel hot? Chances are it’s overheating. Usually your computer will go off once it’s too hot. If it gets too hot, your computer’s hardware can get damaged thereby affecting the running of your software. When your computer gets above 30 degrees Celsius, that is overheating.
When your computer is clogged with too much dust or the fan isn’t working, your computer can easily overheat. Usually we don’t notice overheating because we work on our devices all the time. If we have a lot of programs open or are watching videos or playing online games, our computers can work overtime trying to keep up and then it starts to get hot trying to keep up with all the activity. Signs of overheating can be the stoppage of all programs during use. You can also hear the fans in the computer getting louder and increasing speed. When you turn on the computer, the screen may stay black or it will go to black when you’re using it. Another sign is when you are unable to move arrows with the mouse or are unable to use the keyboard.
To prevent the overheating of your computer, make sure the computer fans are not blocked by other objects so that air can flow through.
Make sure your computer is clean inside and the fan is free of dust. If you can avoid it, eat away from the computer as food debris can easily get on the keyboards which make their way into the computer. This can clog you computer and block needed ventilation. Some computers allow you to do a test to see if the fan inside the computer is working too much or too little or not working at all. This will enable you to see what needs to be done to fix overheating problems. There are applications available that you can install that will allow you to control the computer’s fans and temperature.
There are other separate fan systems available to put under your laptop to increase air flow through your computer making it less likely to overheat. It just plugs into to the usb port of the computer to work. However, over time dust does build up so clean inside your computer once every four months.
Some softwares use more power to run than others. Do some diagnostic testing to see which software causes your computer to work harder and use those less often or get rid of those and use alternative software that doesn’t work your computer too hard.
If you do absolutely need those softwares even though they work your computers hard, you can control the temperature of the room you’re working in by having good air conditioning in your work area to keep your devices cool. Contact a Brisbane air conditioning company to install an air conditioning unit in for you. You will need air conditioning especially if you live in almost tropical hot climates.
