Overheating Problems

Computers - especially laptops - are prone to overheating, this is a problem that needs to be fixed immediately as it can result in absolute failure of the machine.

Overheating computers can cause a lot of problems, from seemingly random blue screens to data loss. You might not even know that it’s the root of your issues, and before you know it you have a burnt-out motherboard (the most expensive part of the machine).

The cause of this problem is usually one of two things. Either the fan is broken (rarely) or most commonly, household dirt, dust and grime has blocked all of the vents that extract the heat from the computer.

Depending on the make and model, it can be a very quick process to restore full cooling ability to a machine and you will enjoy a smooth running PC/Laptop that does not crash and shut down, or burn your lap!
