Laptop overheating is always caused by the lack of air circulation through the heatsink. This can be caused by the following:

  1. the heatsink is clogged up by dust
  2. the fan on the CPU or GPU is damaged and has seized up not running at all
  3. you placed the laptop on a soft surface blocking the air intake

1. In the first case the only reason the laptop overheats, is that your laptop has not had a major service.

The reason is that the intake for the fan is on the bottom of the laptop and when this intake is blocked the air circulation totally stops and the laptop overheats.

As a visitor of our website we can offer you a discounted laptop hardware service
normally $165 for only $145 all you have to do is mention this offer when booking the job in.

You are also eligible for our monthly discount specials.

For a laptop to be fully serviced it has to be taken apart, the motherboard extracted and the cooling system totally has to be dismantled in order for it to be cleaned.

Any other "shortcut" used by inexperienced and uncertified laptop technicians can be only a short term solution that will end up in causing even more damage. BE AWARE!
