Has your laptop ever failed due to overheating?
I know I lost my last laptop to overheating problems, but what about everybody else?
Yes! My Compaq did that continuously. It was very frustrating. The way I was able to get some relief temporarily was to vacuum out the grill on the underside where the fan is. You need to keep it on a non-porous surface while it is being used.
I used to have Dell laptop that overheated once or twice playing a game. It didn't fry the laptop but the game CD in the player acted up. Once the laptop and drive cooled off, it was fine.
I have a Gateway laptop that get very very warm. I complained about it and customer support sort of said, "whatever." It has never caused a problem but it is definitely too hot for having in your lap.
i have had 2 sony vaio's in the past and both have heating issues ... the issues mainly come up after about 2 years of use.
the first laptop just switches off after 15 mins ... the air vent was not in a good place. the second one started giving problems too but i opened it up and fixed it myself. the fan makes a lot of noise now ... definitely gets too hot for the lap but it's working. i didn't even try contacting sony coz i know their customer support is very bad.
