Laptop heat issue

Recommended Posts

[quote name='Time']Just cleaned it a few days ago.



I would buy a new one, but right now I'm saving for a build. It'll still be a month or two before I have the money though, so I want to make sure this one doesn't burn itself before I do have the money.[/QUOTE]

Could be internal fan failure, maybe failure of some part.

I can still hear the fan if I listen closely. Maybe it's not spinning quick enough though.

Where do you use your PC?

My laptop has had the same problem for quite a while. I just bought this kick-ass chill pad [url]https://www.google.com/search?aq=1&oq=targus+gaming+chill+mat&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=targus+hd3+gaming+chill+mat[/url]

Before I got it, I broke the 200 mark on my GPU while I was playing hardcore games (Skyrim @ ultra, etc). Since I've started using it, I haven't gotten passed ~150 degrees. It's definitely worth buying.. especially if it's starting to smell like something's burning; the fan is much cheaper than a new computer xD.

Yeah, I've been thinking that's the best solution. I'll try to get one soon. Does it make it a bitch when you try to use it on your lap though?

Yeah... unless you have a fan, I wouldn't do that.

It's not bad at all. Only like an inch thick (L0L DATZ WUD SH3 [email protected]!1), so it's not that big of a difference.

Cooler/Fan, technically the same thing. And that's a fucking old fan, l2newtech.

That's not the exact fan, just the same style.
