Can hot summer weather temperature damage the laptop?

Hello I would like to know is if you were using the laptop while it is placed in the bedroom and the room was very warm(maybe above the average room temperature by 10-20C) because of Hot weather and windows are closed/doors plus not gaming but just watching videos.


I'm a bit worried about using the laptop during summer since it is roasting and my question is Could this damage the laptop or the components or the battery? I don't know about room temperature but I'm sure summer heat will cause it to rise.

Why ? - open some windows it will help cool the place (unless your using air-con). A laptop cooler will help

(eg)



Also make sure your Laptop air intakes and fans are clean.

James pal it might be hot but in the UK but we don't come close to the temps experienced in Africa and the USA etc. And they work fine ... So don't worry your well below the temps that might concern you

Extra cooling wouldn't hurt, and it might give you piece of mind. Making sure vents are clear is good practice in any climate. "Canned Air" is cheap.

Problem with summer is that it difficult the normal cooling and reduces effectiveness of coolers on computers and laptops specially suffer from overheating. It won't by itself damage the computer, but the CPU and GPU temperature will rise more than in winter, so when doing some CPU-intensive activity like gaming you should watch out for your temperature if it goes too high. A clear symptom is that it powers off by itself abruptly in the middle of something. While that's not good, it a self-protection mechanism that modern CPUs have. If that happens frequently, consider the cooling pad and cleaning the cooler of dust.

You can also download RealTemp to monitor your temperatures, just in case (Real Temp - CPU temperature monitoring)

My laptop works perfectly in roasting 45C in India... I mostly play games that would rise my temps to 65-80C. Still my laptop is working perfectly...
Your 25C room temp wont affect your laptop.

Roasting? More like broiling! I can handle 25C here in arid AZ but your humidity would kill me.
