Y50-70 High temperatures/Fan cleaning/Back cover fan outlet cleaning

2015-08-06, 10:17 AM

Hello,

 

I'm having a temperature problem and I don't have any experience in cleaning laptops and understanding when and how to do it. As far as I know, the problem is that my laptop is getting quite hot and I'm using it a lot, gaming included.

 

I'm going to post a couple of screenshots and a photo.

This is the temperature when I just surf the internet.

This is the temperature when I'm gaming, but sometimes it gets much hotter.

This is my fan outlet, as you can see, it has accumulated a lot of dust.

 

 

 

I hope that someone could help and maybe explain what does affect the computer's temperatures and how to clean this particular fan outlet. Oh, and maybe the fan itself has a lot of dust? I don't know. I have only removed the cover once, trying to clean the same fan outlet that you see (then it had much less dust in), but I couldn't figure out how, because it has some kind of cloth-like material glued to the case and I didn't wan't to rip it off, so I left it uncleaned.

 

The last bit of information I want to provide in this post is that I bought this laptop on January of 2015, and I did have a period, when I was using it on my bed (without any cooling pad or hard surface), but then I stopped doing that and bought a cooling pad. Which was too small for me and after a couple of months usage I gave it away, now I'm left without a cooling pad, but I'm not using the laptop on my bed anymore - always on the table.

 

Anyway, I hope that somebody replies with some tips, 'cause I'm fed up with the high temperatures and occasional lag spikes in my games.

 

P.S. If you need any more information, please ask, I'll be happy to provide.

 

Thanks everybody in advance

Since you have already had the back cover off once, I would remove it again and use some canned compressed air on the vents.  Even though it sounds like there is cloth filter over the grills, the compressed air should be able to blow the dust out if you do it from both directions. While the cover was off I would blow out the fans as well.  Just use a short burst of air on the fans as a prolonged blast may damage them.  Also when blowing out the fans do it from both directions (intake - exhaust) and do it a couple of times till no more dust comes out.  Cans of compress air are available at any electronics store, office supply store, etc.
