Windows 7: Temperatures inside my laptop

A chillpad (example) can reduce the temp by about 10 degrees. On my HP laptop I had a similar problem that I solved with a chillpad. An additional help is a 12 cell battery that is high enough to elevate the rear of the laptop and allows airflow.

Try applying new Thermal Compound to your processor, that'll maybe take a lot of the heat off (it gives better heat transfer between your cpu coller and the cpu it self)

Not something that most people are comforable with doing, let alone on a laptop.

Should my tempreatures be so high?

Thanks,

I've been through this, Matt.

I'm assuming your laptop is not new.

Blowing air into the air intakes and exhaust ports, applying the vacuum cleaner hose to those ports, etc. didn't work for me. I took it to a computer repair shop where the technician did two things while I waited. He opened up the case and vacuumed out the whole machine including all the air ducts from inlet to outlet (there was quite a bit of dust in the ducts that my amateur vacuuming had failed to remove). Then he renewed the thermal paste between the processors and some heat pipe or other - I can't remember the details. The whole thing was quicker than a haircut, solved the problem and cost me £20 (I was travelling through the UK at the time).

Just a suggestion.

Apart from the cooler stand, is there anything that will raise my laptop up, so the air will be able to get through?
I bought 2 paint stirring sticks, cut them to size then glued them together and set them on the back side of my laptop. I used Vlecro to attach them easy to carry with you in your laptop bag if you have one. JAT.
Ultimately the cooler is the best solution.
If you use it on your lap or on any soft surface like on your bed or the carpet on the floor you will be amazed at how fast they will clog with fibers and dust. Fabe

If you use it on your lap or on any soft surface like on your bed or the carpet on the floor you will be amazed at how fast the temperature rises. The machine may even go into thermal shutdown to prevent damage. Laptops, despite their name, are not designed to be used on soft surfaces such as laps, beds, carpets or sleeping animals. The laptop has to rest on a hard flat surface if the air inlets are to be kept free.

Also, if you are male you might not like the temperature of your gonads being raised by the warm underside of a laptop. The male gonads are where they are to keep them cool.

Cooling your laptop

Alot of laptops trap the fan at the bottom so it is better to buy an external one. Also, these stop the fan from being blocked by the surface it is sitting on, allowing the air to circulate. Here is a guide which may help if you want to buy one.
