Toshiba Laptop fever

Dec 24, 2019 10:20PM PST

Hello everyone, my Toshiba Satellite A100 computer has a problem recently. The heat dissipation is particularly bad. After using the computer for a while, it is particularly hot. I always clean the computer trash, but it seems to be useless. Is there any good solution?

Deleting files doesn't do anything regarding temperature, so that's useless indeed.

In your case it can be 2 things, and you or your tech are the only one that can find out the cause and fix it:
1. Unneeded or unwanted background programs running.
2. Hardware issues causing bad cooling (broken fan, dust, old heat paste),

Hello, in order to effectively clean the dust in the cooling system, it is necessary to disassemble the laptop and disassemble the cooling system, and carefully remove the dust between the radiator plates. The thermal grease should also be replaced, because the thermal grease will dry out over time, which means that the thermal conductivity will be greatly reduced. If a thermal pad is installed, it should also be replaced, although less frequently than thermal grease. The fan must also be running (rotating)

I have cleaned the computer dust and garbage, but it seems to be useless. I got it in a repair shop, and the boss said that my laptop fan has aged.
