Toshiba® Satellite L450 Overheating
Laptop overheating has become the most common issue for laptop users. It effects badly on the system because of many reasons. The overheating of the system effects the system performance badly causing more problems for the user. Moreover, the overheating of the system causes lot more damage to other hardware placed in the system.
- Technical reasons
- Issues due to overheating
One of major common reason is that both the graphics and UPS chips are becoming highly dense packed with some type of heat generating transistors. If both of these graphics chips or UPS are not properly designed in the system it will result in overheating of the system. Another reason that may cause overheating is that the interruption in cooling system of the laptop and hence cause overheating. This is actually a manufacturing problem; it basically occurs if the desktop computer hardware are placed in laptops.
Toshiba Satellite L450 gives the signals itself of the overheating of the system. The most frequent signal given by the laptop is frequent shut downs. If the laptop shutdowns on its own without actually a clear reason it means that there is definitely some overheating issues damaging the system. it indicated that there is a missing of safety software, due to this absence the laptop shutdown itself when the temperature becomes too high. Other signals that shows that the laptop is overheated includes, excessive fan operation, operation and memory errors and sometimes in extreme cases it shows the in explainable Blue Screen of Death.
There can be a number of technical errors that cause bad system errors. One of the most common errors is the usage of CPU or the graphics card extensively. This problem mostly occurs in the case of gaming. Gaming causes most overheating problems. Virus scans can also cause the overheating issues. Sometimes overheating issues takes place due to the reason that the laptop is operated in a high temperature area.
Some serious issues can damage the laptop and can cause expensive damage to the system. The most common are replacement of major components of the system. These problems lead to serious hardware damage. According to latest research, it has been shown that the flash drivers also cause the elevation of overheating of notebooks.
The laptop should be used on a flat cool hard surface; this will allow the circulation of air underneath the laptop. A rare case that can occur is that sometimes company label is pasted on the vents causing overheating, removing the label often solves the problem. If the laptop is overheating the user must check the sound of fan that it is running or not. The user must check that the thermal paste is working or not properly, as it transfers the heat from processor to the heat sink. All the vents must be cleaned from all kinds of dust or dirt particles, to improve the laptop’s efficiency. Most important is that to run the laptop at power saving option. This will help in cooling of laptop.
