Windows 7: HP Pavilion dm1 Notebook PC getting up to 85 degrees celsius

HP Pavilion dm1 Notebook PC getting up to 85 degrees celsius

Hey all, I have had my laptop for maybe three years now. The temperatures never really bothered me up until a few months ago. They tend to get up to 62 degrees celsius (both cores) while watching YouTube and internet browsing, but up to 85 degrees celsius while gaming. I have heard of using a cool pad (In fact, I am using one now, except it doesn't do much, due to my laptop only having one fan on the side), thermal paste, and compressed air, but I do not have the money for any of those. If anyone can tell me what I can do, PLEASE tell me. Thanks!

Other than a good cleaning, replacing thermal paste and make sure the fan is working properly their isn't much you can do.

It may or may not continue working properly. A bad thing about heat is it will destroy electronics over time, may be short or long, no guarantee which. It can help to get a cooling device to put under the Notebook, some have a fan that plugs into a USB port for power or could use a Self-powered USB Hub.

The USB powered ones are not strong enough. It is better to go with wall power. I had both and there was a difference.

After 3 years there is probably some dirt inside. A compressed air can is not expensive at home depot. I would try that.
