Is your laptop constantly overheating and shutting off? This could be due to a clogged vent fan and/or burnt out thermal paste on your heat sink. Thermal paste is a conductive paste that allows heat to transfer from the electrical components in your laptop to the heat sink, and ultimately out of the computer. Save yourself some money, and learn how to keep your laptop nice and cool with this guide.

    • Shut down your laptop completely.

    • Do not simply power off your computer using the power button. This will put the laptop into sleep mode. Instead, shut down the laptop from the start menu.

    • Unplug the charger cord and all devices connected to the computer.

    • Electrostatic shocks can damage the internal components of the computer.

    • Press and hold the power button for a minimum of 10 seconds to allow electric charge to dissipate from the motherboard and internal components.

    • Optional: You may also wear an anti-static bracelet during the repair as a safety precaution. This grounds you to the computer chassis and prevents accidental static discharge from your fingers.

    • Lift both ends of the plastic tab securing the ribbon cable to the system board with the help of a spudger.

    • If you don't have a spudger, any plastic item with a thin edge, like the plastic opening tool pictured here, will work just as well. Guitar picks are also a good alternative.

    • Lift out vent fan.

    • Clean the dust from the fan with a small brush and/or compressed air.

    • When using compressed air, avoid tilting the bottle greater than 40 degrees from vertical. Doing so will cause the part and your hand to rapidly cool.
