Transcript

  • 1. How To Fix a Noisy Laptop
  • 2. We often get paranoid overthe littlest things. Take, forinstance, a friend of minewho started hearing weirdnoises from her laptop.These noises grew louderand louder each day andshe really thought her laptopwas on the fritz.
  • 3. She then began thinkingabout whether she shouldbuy a new laptop, have her NEW REPAIR?current one professionally LAPTOP?repaired, or else let a techiefriend look over it so shecould just worry aboutspending money on laptopspare parts or something.
  • 4. All of her solutions involvedspending money, and nodoubt she was balancingout which solution was themost effective regardingrate of success vis-à-viscost.
  • 5. I told her, though, that therewas another answer at handto her problem, and it didn’tinvolve spending a cent;assuming, that is, that heraforementioned techiefriend had a screwdriver anda can of compressed airlying around. Lucky for her,that techie friend (i.e. me)has just those tools.
  • 6. In this case, the laptop partthat has been making all thatnoise is the cooling fan goingat faster speeds that it had tobefore. Because internaltemperature is kept track ofautomatically by the laptop,when the cooling fan gets likethat, it usually means that it’sgetting progressively hotterinside the computer.
  • 7. Just like in desktops, dust canaccumulate in laptops over time.Add to this the fact that laptopparts are packed so tightly as adesign characteristic, and theaccumulated dust suddenlybecomes a very big threat. Notonly is heat trapped in by thedust, but the constant running ofthe cooling fan furtheraggravates the heat in the longrun, leading to the laptopoverheating.
  • 8. To remedy this, all you needare a screwdriver and a canof compressed air (aspreviously stated). Afterturning off your laptop, whatyou do first is you unplug itsACadapter, turn it around,and take out its battery.
  • 9. Then, take a look at thelaptop’s air vent, which isplaced on one of its edges.Once located, you shouldbe able to find a removablepanel at the bottom. Takeout the screws that hold thepanel in place and thenremove it. You should nowbe able to see the fan.
  • 10. What comes next should befun: With the can of air,carefully blow out the dust,in outward motions towardsthe direction of the air vent.Make sure not to get tootrigger-happy; short burstshere and there, from asmany angles as possible, isthe order of the day.
  • 11. Also, make sure thatyou don’t blow too closeand/or too long near thelaptop parts, or youcould risk incurringactual physical damageto your gadget.
  • 12. Once this is done,replace the accesspanel, screw it in, putthe battery back inplace, power yourlaptop on, and youshould be able to hearthe sweet sound ofsilence.
  • 13. THANK YOU• ORIGINAL POST:http://laptopkeys01.blogspot.com/2012/07/v-behaviorurldefaultvmlo.html• RELATED LINKS:http://www.facebook.com/LaptopDesktopRepairhttps://twitter.com/laptopaid01https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/106842529120453547172/10684252912045 3547172/posts
