Deep Clean – HP DV6 fix overheating problem

This laptop came in with complaints of overheating and random shutting down while in use.

It seemed like the fan was not spinning.

We took the machine apart (yes we make it sound easy), and found the fan had become clogged up with dust, and as a result the fan motor had burnt out.

Also, the dust had got into other parts of the laptop, and was blocking the vents where air would normally escape.

We replaced the faulty laptop fan, cleaned all the dust out and replaced the worn thermal paste with new high quality Arctic MX4.

Result: cooler and happier laptop!

Deep clean – Alienware Gaming Laptop

Very important that your laptop doesn’t overheat – especially with machines such as this!

Picture shows a build up of dust inside the heatsink/fan area. This build up creates a blanket over the heat dissipation area. All cleaned out, fans greased up and cleaned and new thermal paste applied to help conductivity.

Afterwards stress tested and monitored temperatures to ensure the deep clean was effective.

Result: Happy laptop!
