- How to prevent overheating
Operating high capacity programs
There are certain programs and applications that consume a lot of space on your computer, keep your hard drive and video system extremely busy and keep the CPU operational. This exerts lot of pressure on your computer and as a result, your system overheats and ultimately shuts off automatically. This is because your computer has a thermal switch which turns it off whenever its temperature goes beyond the specified limit. In order to avoid such a situation, you should avoid operating such high capacity programs for a long time.
Thermal switch off
You can set your computer to turn off whenever it reaches a specified degree of temperature. The thermal switch in your computer will turn off your computer when it reaches the temperature set by you, thus saving it from getting overheated.
Dust may have gathered in and around the CPU fans and require cleaning. This may be interrupting with the proper functioning of the CPU and it be getting overheated. You can clean the CPU fans by using a soft cloth or a vacuum cleaner.
First of all you should never use your computer for several hours continuously. Even if you need to do so, you should not forget to give it a break every now and then. Also do not run too many programs at a time and close down any windows that you are not using currently.
