Laptop Cooling Fan Question
 
hello.
I have a dell laptop with an intel cpu which is currently in the shop for repairs.
the technician told me that the cooling fan is completely worn. Now I do strain my laptop on a daily base but Iíve noticed something.
Previously, I had a hp laptop with turion x2 cpu, now every couple of months, I had heating problems, taking it to the shop, repasting the thermal compound and cleaning the fan did the trick. both computers have endured the same strain in the same environment.
Now, I know amd cpus needs better heat dispersement, but can it be that intel fans worn down more easily then amd fans in laptops?
Another thing, when I talked to the technician, he said that whoever build the computer when I bought it didnít removed the plastics of the gpu and chipset that comes on them when they are sent from the factory in order to safeguard it. Now can that be related to the worn down of the fan in any way? Is it possible that the fan tried to vent down the heat for other parts beside the cpu?

i buy a underneth cooling system that plugs into the usb and spins cold air under the laptop when i use it at home

this helps keep things cool and the result is less change for things to burn up and need fixing

but ...... sometimes a lemon is a lemon

My Gateway laptop runs HOTTER then HOT. They have actually recalled a ton of batteries from models just prior and after mine (but of course not my specific model) for catching on fire. Just had to have the hard drive replaced because of heat damage and the tech suggested I buy a lap top cooler - like rebelnetwork's. I bought a Swissgear cooler for under $45. It is wonderful. My laptop never overheats now and neither do my legs! :cloud9:

Hi...I also have a Dell laptop, but never faced such a problem like this. I think it may be because of over heat. Keep it in cool place.

You need to ensure that the fans are clear and that the bottom of the laptop sits on a hard surface and not as some do a blanket/duvet. Laptops are designed to disperse their own heat.

Yeap and makes for a nice little stand too. I have this problem 2x because I buy my laptops from the US and they do plug into the 220v outlets here that cause heating problems and essentially just ruins the battery in my own experience. But a 30 dollar underneath cooling stand does the trick every time.

Can't afford that you say???? Well I notice a substaintial reduction in heat simply by placing some sort of object under the back of your lap top, thus elevating the battery (back of the LT) just a bit.

Laptops and notebooks are cooled by an air flow as cool air is pulled in through sides or the bottom of
the case and then it is pushed out in the back. Many users keep their laptops or notebooks on their laps (hence the name), on a blanket or a cushion, potentially blocking the cooling vents and causing the temperature to rise.

Cooling Fan
 
Yes i have also heard about cooling fan for laptop but till today i only thinks that it will not help to cool down your laptop. But after reading this post i like to purchase it........

To solve this problem there are many external cooling pads in the market, almost every laptop cooling pad is has one or more fans built into them and are powered by the USB ports of the notebook.

Two things are to be noted while purchasing a laptop cooling pad.
1) Does the laptop have any vents in the bottom (Macbook's dont have any)
2) A little understanding of the direction of air flow in the laptop vents.

Hi, Thank you very much for suggest us about cooling our laptops by using cooling fans. Actually I didn't hear these news till now, this is the first time I am hearing. Now I am planning to get some thing to my laptop.
