Get to know the reasons that lead to overheating problems on Acer® laptops and the tips to avoid the overheating issues.
Overheating is a common laptop issue and Acer® laptops are no exception. Even if Acer® is one of the best brands, this problem still occurs on its laptops as it totally depends on the laptop’s usage. In spite of the fact that this problem is very grave, it can be easily avoided by following some common sense rules and indications provided by the manufacturer.
Problems that lead to overheating of the Acer® laptops and the tips to resolve them are discussed in the following points:
One of the frequent causes of overheating of the Acer® laptop is poor ventilation or no ventilation at all. At times, fans and air vents that assure system cooling are blocked by dust and other substances that have reached the fans accidentally. Taking into account this issue, fans and air vents should be cleaned regularly.
If the protection software designed to control the running of the fans is damaged, the consequence is overheating of the laptop. Most of the time, this problem is caused by some problems with the BIOS. The same problem can be caused if the operating system has been upgraded or changed, because this software might not function in the new conditions. Upgrading to the latest BIOS version can resolve the first problem. Returning to the previous operating system can be the solution for the second one.
A poor laptop design can cause this phenomenon, too. The desktop CPU is merely crammed into the configuration of the laptop and the heat released cannot be evacuated properly. There are situations where laptops don’t have fans and cooling systems compatible with modern CPUs and video chips; as these have more transistors, they release more heat. Thus, bad ventilation leads to excessive heat generation.
If the Acer® laptop runs for long hours performing difficult applications, it will overheat. There are programs, games, antivirus software, applications, and operating systems that use a great amount of system resources. They will force the system capabilities and will overheat it.
In this case, it is recommended to use an additional cooling system. If you don’t have any at hand, take regular breaks and allow the system to cool until you purchase a cooling pad.
