Overheating of the Samsung® R610
Overheating of the Samsung R610
The Samsung R610 is a new notebook that acts as a bridge between portable notebooks and multimedia notebooks. It is a mix of performance, multimedia and portability. It has 3GB of RAM at 2.0 GHz and an Intel Core 2 Duo T5800 processor. It has a 16 inch screen with a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution. It has Windows Vista Home Premium as its Operating System. One of the biggest disadvantages that any laptop faces when compared to desktop PCs, is overheating. This is mainly due to the inappropriate environment in which you use your laptop. Laptops have cooling fans in the middle which actually helps it to dissipate heat. But due to the continuous use of laptops on uneven surfaces will not allow the heat to get dispersed properly. This in turn increases the temperature of the laptop so much that you won’t be able to touch it.
Given below are some of the reasons and measures to fix the problems due to overheating of Samsung R610 laptop:
- Spreading of dust
- Changes made in the BIOS
- Lap acts as heat generator
Spreading of dust
Sometimes dust builds up inside your Samsung R610 laptop. This has to be avoided because these dust particles block the air vents, thereby preventing air to exit the notebook. This will also act as insulator. Therefore, to remove the dust particles, use a can with compressed air, put the notebook upside down and blow compressed air into the vents.
Changes made in the BIOS
Changes made to the BIOS also cause overheating. This is because nowadays, users are eager to get the latest and updated versions of different software for their system. They upgrade the system in various aspects (like Operating System) but then forget to upgrade the BIOS settings that actually control heat build-up within the laptop. So make the necessary modifications in the BIOS to fix this problem.
The lap of the user generates a lot of heat. This is because the vents at the bottom of your laptop get blocked at this time. This will re-direct the heat back to the notebook causing its temperature to increase. You can prevent this by using laptop cooling pads. They work very well to prevent notebook heating. These are compact devices which can be attached to your laptop through a USB port. It contains fans that point upwards into your laptop vents, thereby helping to cool the CPU.
