Computers overheating and what causes it?




Computer Overheating




Slow Computer
Overheating happens more often with laptops then tower computers. After the 2-3 years of use, especially when used in a dusty environment the heat sink gets blocked with dust and prevents the free air circulation that keeps the normal working temperature. Every computer has a temperature sensor and when the temperature reaches a critical point the sensors triggers the overheating protection that shuts down the computer to prevent any damage. The normal working temperature is 40-75 degrees and you can monitor this using a very nice the HWMonitor software to check whether your computer overheats. When the laptop works near its maximum temperatures the motherboard detects this and reduces its performance to compensate the temperature increase. When the temperature continues to increase the motherboard will shutdown the entire computer to prevent damage.

It is good practice to have you laptop serviced every 2 years and for tower computers 3-5 years depending on the environment. Servicing includes heat sink cleaning and replacing a thermal paste which resides between the heat sink and the motherboard elements.
