A laptop that’s overheated can cause several processes from running correctly, which can mean a reduction in the quality of your machine. If you conduct business on your laptop, overheating can result in costly downtime that directly affects your income.
There are several simple solutions that can be applied at no additional cost that can keep your laptop running at its optimal and expected speed.
How You Use It
Do you place your laptop on hard or soft surfaces? This can make a big difference to the internal temperature of your machine. Using your laptop by placing it on a cushion will cause the heat to become trapped in the cushion, as well as cause the airflow to be obstructed.
How Long You Leave It On
Laptops, just like personal computers, aren’t meant to be on around the clock. Your machine needs time to cool off, and an easy way to allow it to do this is to place it in standby mode when you aren’t using it. Not only will this save power, but it will also result in less heat being released from your laptop.
Although laptops are the enclosed and mobile form of a personal computer, they still do need cleaning. Dirt will build up on and in the air vents of a laptop, and so regular cleaning is definitely necessary. The dust can be removed with a small electric cleaner which can be found online or at your local office supply store, or you can purchase a can of compressed air that’s been made especially for cleaning electronics.

Looking for internet providers in my area was more difficult than I thought. There are so many advertisements on television and radio and seem to be about my neighborhood, but many of the providers don’t actually reach my specific neighborhood. I found it was made easier when I was able to search for internet providers by zip code. That made it much more precise. I could then compare the plans side by side, and see how they stacked up for speed, price, and promotions. I like bundles, since they really save money and deliver the better quality overall. I was able to see if the major internet providers offered the same plans in my neighborhood that they offer elsewhere in my city, and check out specials for new customers. For me, speed is everything, so it helped to see how the plans that had top speeds featured were priced, and how they were bundled.
