4 Little Known Ways To Prevent Computer Overheating

Computers are at the center of work done over the Internet. They process information from one end of a spectrum to another and transfer that information as well. Also, they even withstand the process of starting and running of a video game.

Others things that are taken into consideration are videos, software applications, and pictures which can really add up overtime. Without taking the appropriate measures, all of this can make a computer run very slow and as a result cause them to overheat.

Overheating occurs when temperature conditions becomes extremely hot, to a point where its difficult operate. At this point, you can either cool it down or run the risk of it crashing. When a computer crashes, it will no longer open programs until it has cooled off. Similarities can be drawn from people, who are often overburdened at work; causing them sweat and even slow down after long periods time of constantly moving.

Let's now look at some of the ways you can prevent this from happening to your computer:

1. Turn on the cooling system: If you have a computer with at 4gb of ram, then it should include a feature that will keep it from getting too hot by adjusting the cpu fan settings inside of the computer. For example, my computer has HP CoolSense enabled and it optimizes how well it can perform operations and makes sure the cpu internal fan is working at an appropriate level. 

Most computers operate on either airflow or a liquid cooling system. For instance, my computer uses airflow, so this means that if the ventilation ducts on it are clogged up with dirt or dust then the computer would have a hard time blowing out the cool air needed to cool it down. Liquid cooling systems are the better of the two because it is able to convert heat into cool air much quicker than air cooling systems, which means they don't make a lot of noise either. Whatever the case may be, be sure that the computer's cooling system is working properly and certain that the air ducts are not covered by debris.

2. Avoid using too many applications that take up a lot of storage at one time: For example, having Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Word, and AutoCAD opened all at the same time would cause the internal fan move at an incredibly fast pace to run them; eventually overheating. So whether your computer's cpu operates on air flow or liquid cool, this is something to keep in mind.

3. Stay away from hot environments: This one is pretty straightforward, just make sure that the computer is stored in a cool environment and away from intense heat. When a computer reaches a certain temperature, it will turn off automatically on its own and protect itself to avoid damaging hardware. 

You'll know if your computer is close to overheating if the cpu's fan has been running at the fastest speed for a couple of minutes. Typically, a warning message will be sent stating that the area is too hot for the computer to properly function. Most computers will have a maximum temperature of 100F and you can check yours by going to the manufacturer's website.

4. Uninstall malware programs: a program that contains a virus can cause the cpu to process faster than it normally would causing it overheat. Additionally, they can install other malware programs to further increase cpu usage.

All in all, protecting your computer from overheating can be avoided if approached with the right measures. I hope this guide has given you a get better understanding of how overheating happens and how to prevent it.
