Re: Laptop overheating solutions

My wife's old Toshiba Satelite ran super hot at times. I took the whole thing apart and found where the little fan intake and exhaust all clogged with dirt and dust.

I started blowing it out regularly after that and it was fine ever since.

I think laptops get clogged with dirt a lot quicker then regular desktops because of placing them on different surfaces like clothing, furniture, etc. So they pick up a lot more soot.

I'd recommend blowing them out with compressed air a lot more often then you would a desktop.
