PostSubject: computer hot   Sun Sep 16, 2018 10:36 am

During this summer I have found my computer getting hot and both fans working hard then sometimes freezing. Then I have to switch off and start again. I hoover sucked out the air grills and still the same. I then got a metal drawer with holes in it and turned it upside down to put the PC on it to get more air under it. It still did it.

So last Sunday bought an air spray can and fired it inside, still the same.


So now I had to open it up and found that it had star torx screws holding it together. I watched a video first. I then had to buy a pack of star torx screwdrivers sold in packs of nine for £7.

Under a flap there were two very small phillips screws and I have about a dozen small screwdrivers which none would remove them. So I bought a pack of small screwdrivers both flat and phillips for £8 and not realising had a range of star torx included as well. So now I have 21 screwdrivers to open a PC roll eyes

I took a small bit of fluff out of the edge of one fan and blew the air around it. It seems to have worked, the battery is the flat black 'lilo' looking thing which to replace now has to have the back of the PC removed but at least I know how to do it now

It seem to have done the trick for now

Been there before Del, can you see them two rows of square piping that runs between them, take them off and blow them through as well.

To many programmes running at the same time can also make the computer get very hot, maybe programmes running in the background thats not needed

looking at lots of photos and changing pictures in On1 software really gets the fans going and that was my freeze problem
