Any system will face the issue of overheating if it is regularly used in environments like vehicles without ACs in the summer, hot surfaces, or even indoors where your laptop is being exposed directly to sunlight. Greater the temperature, less it will be able to cool itself. So there are facts to be kept in mind regarding the overheating problem of your laptop.
Reasons and solutions to the overheating problems faced in your Samsung Q1b laptop are:
- Working surface
- Dust in the notebook
- Improper upgrade of BIOS
Laptops should always be placed on a flat surface without blocking the air flow. It should have couple of inches left all around. This will help in the unobstructed air flow. Running the notebook on beds and on your laps is equally restricting for its proper functioning. So while you face overheating due to poor positioning, try to work it on a flat leveled cool place without the side vents getting blocked.
Dust in the notebook
Dust inside the notebook will also cause air flow blockage. These dust particles would block up various hardware components inside the laptop. You can prevent this by applying pressurized air on the surfaces with aerosols. Dust should be removed as soon as possible because it will act as an insulator inside the Samsung Q1b.
After a recent upgrade, you can face a situation where your fan does not come on anymore. This is mainly because you do not upgrade your BIOS settings even after installing upgraded peripherals in the system. So, manufacturers always advise the user to install the latest BIOS versions available from the official sites. Usually, any customer executive will want you to work with the latest BIOS in your laptop or the version that you purchased it with. Sometimes if even after upgrading the BIOS, your system faces overheating trouble; it will be better reinstall the original version.
