Many laptop owners face the fact that laptops are often hang and slow. The most common cause of this problem is the laptop overheating. This is often due to the fact that old laptop cooling fan is clogged by dust or something else. If the fan and heat sink cooling system is dusty – then this will reduce the cooling efficiency, and cause some noise.
Let’s get started.
To clean the laptop cooling system we will need :
– A screwdriver to remove the cover and the fan
– Napkins or fabric, and possibility of required compressor or a can of compressed air to blow dust from the heatsink
– Lubrication the fan (anything but wanted to make it thick and does not spread quickly)
When the cover is removed, find the fan, unscrew the bolt:
Remove the impeller. It can sometimes be removed without much effort, and sometimes it holds pieces of plastic. To remove the the impeller in this case, you can remove the sticker on the back side with a needle and gently lift the puck. With the puck must be neat. It is very easy to lose. Then take the the impeller:
Now, there is quite an important phase – removal the dust from the heatsink. To do this, I recommend using a brush, dry fabrics, a can of compressed air or a compressor. In extreme cases, you can have a vacuum cleaner or blow with full force. The goal is simple – to blow a gap between the plates remove all the dust. That may seem like a clogged sink (these two photos taken from the site azbooki.ru): All the the dust and other dirt is cleaned out.
As result, it should be obtain a clean cooler. When you are finished, collect all of it, tighten all the bolts and put the battery.
