Resolve Overheating issue in laptops with Windows® 7
Is your laptop operating on Windows 7 overheating? Find out how to fix this issue.
All electronic devices generate heat when they are used. This includes laptops. Heat is produced within a laptop when the internal components are in operation. In normal conditions, heat produced by a laptop is quickly dissipated to the surroundings. Overheating is a situation where the heat produced by the system stays within, and causes the laptop to work at a much higher temperature than normal. Overheating can come up on any laptop working on any Operating System. This includes your laptop operating on Windows 7. Even after using the power saver features, the laptop is still overheating, then the reasons might be external. The reasons as to why your laptop operating on Windows 7 is overheating include clogging of air vents, malfunction of cooling fan, issues with the software associated with the functioning of the cooling fan and so on.
Following details mentioned below will give users more information regarding tips to prevent overheating issues with laptop operating on Windows 7:
- Clean air vents
- Place system properly
- Configure power settings
Cleaning of air vents
All laptops have small air vents that permit the circulation of cool air in and around the system to lower the working temperature of the system. This includes your laptop operating on Windows 7. As there air vents are small, they might get clogged with dust or other small particles over time which would cause disruption of air circulation and subsequent overheating. Such issues can be prevented by cleaning the air vents of the system on a regular basis.
Place system properly
Your laptop operating on Windows 7 might be overheating because of incorrect positioning of the system. If the laptop is placed in such a way that the cooling fan air intake is blocked, the cooling fan would lose its efficiency and cause overheating of the system. Such issues can be prevented by placing the system properly, such that there is always enough circulation of air in and around the system.
There are many power related settings on Windows 7 that can be used to prevent the overheating of the laptop. Power settings can be configured in such a way that the internal components and the display of the system power down after the system has been in idle for a few minutes. Configuring the laptop this way would not only help save power, but also prevent overheating.
