You should consider to clean your Laptop or PC at least once a year. If you don’t, it may cause you problems like overheating, blue screens, slowing down and eventually dying.
When your laptop gets dirty and dusty inside, the dust that collects forms a “blanket” over the exhaust grills, stopping the fan from pulling in cold air and pushing out the hot air coming from the processor.
This is the result – see pictures below for before / after shots.
Dirty dusty overheating laptop.
It’s very important that your laptop is able to extract heat from away from the processor, hard drive, ram and the rest of the motherboard.
As you can see from the pictures, the fan and heatsink are clogged up with dust, turning it into a blanket (and keeping in the heat).
Imagine this heat build up over time, re-circulating inside the laptop, and you have the perfect recipe for a disaster.
At Laptop Doctor, we recommend get your laptop deep cleaned at least once a year (if you want your laptop to live longer).
