Laptop Preventive Cooling Maintenance Service


Here at Tim’s Computer Repair we get a lot of complaints about peoples laptops overheating or shutting down unexpectedly. There are many reason for this, but the most common is overheating due to clogged up fans due to dust build up. Remember some laptops run hotter than others. The usual suspects are CPU fan failure, poor heatsink contact, dust, poor compound, poor thermal pad solutions and blocked ventilation channels. Other issues could be due to Internal components such as graphics cards, These can increase the amount of heat generated in a laptop.
