Dec 1, 2009

I think its time i gave everything a quick clean.

What is the best method?

Compressed air?

Do you take the back off and clean down the fans etc or does this void the warranty?

Acer :: 5920G Ram Vents

Dec 5, 2008

Ive taken the back cover off my 5920 many times and really never took a look at it until now. What i noticed is that the vents for the ram are covered by a glossy black see through tape rather than mesh, which covers all the other vents.

Ive linked a picture below: add http into brackets

Has anyone else noticed that in their laptop? or is mine the only one where they ran out of mesh and decided tape was just as good. I wanna just rip it off.

Another thing, has anyone been able to overclock their 5920?(mines got a T8100) ive been searching for days and cant find anyone who has. I always have my backcover off and have my laptop resting on a custom dual 120mm fan notebook cooler. My idle temps are from 37-42, load is just over 60. I wanna push this thing just a bit more.

Apple :: Vents On The Aluminum MacBook

Jun 7, 2009

In OS X my MacBook is very, very quiet. You can't hear anything at all, at least compared to my Inspiron 6400s. I haven't heard the fan kick in yet while in OS X. Now, in boot camp, there's another story. I almost always hear the fan! What's up with that?! It frightens me knowing that the notebook is working extremely hard while just idling in XP, I'm afraid to play 3D games for too long, even though there's no lagging or fps drops or anything.

So here's the question. I'm certain that too much heat is a bad thing, but where the heck are the vents? On my Dells they're clearly on the back. On the MacBook i see absolutely no exit points for heat. This scares me.

Apple :: Yellow Lights When Looking Through The Vents

Feb 22, 2009

i've been playing far cry 2 for 4 hours. i shut down the game, my temp is 79-80 degrees celcius which is perfectly normal when gaming on the macbook pro. i don't know why i wanted to look through the vents. i turn my laptop and look through. i saw this yellow light. its approximately under the R and F keys on the keyboard. i turn my laptop and look closely on the keyboard and it's illuminated white. no sign of the yellow light. Thus, to resume, i saw it only when looking through the vents. does anybody know what is this light? what is causing it to light up? i smelled closely but no burning smell. in fact, i cant smell any weird odour. is it harmful for my macbook pro?

HP/Compaq :: Grinding Sound Coming From Top Left Vents

Feb 10, 2010

So a few days ago, my computer just all of a sudden began making a
strange "grinding/crunching" sound which seems to be coming from the top left side of the computer. The sound is very clear especially from the back left corner vent. The noise seems to come and go but still has me very worried. I've read this noise may indicate a dieing hard drive, however tests came by negative and also the hard drive for this notebook is in the middle, not toward the top left. Anyway, I recorded the sound twice and was wondering if you could take a look and tell me what you guys think (you might wanna turn your volume up). I have an HP Dv7t

Apple :: Wheres My MacBook Pros Exhaust Vents

Apr 25, 2009

I've noticed unlike most laptops ( like my old Dell & my GF's Dell ) my Mac Book Pro 15 seems to have no obvious area for the heat to exscape...

I have noticed some heat above the keyboard where the screen hinge is, but dont see any vents...

I was gonna buy a lap top cooler for my GF's laptop & thought about getting self one but wonder if it would really do anything for my MBP15?

Dell :: Cleaning My 1720

Feb 11, 2009

My laptop doesnt over heat or anything but I have had this dell inspiron 1720 for over a year now and I really would like to clean out the fans/vents.

I read people's posts and they make it sound so easy to do. Well i flipped my laptop over and i look near the vents. There are no screws near the vent.

I also checked my manual and it does not show you how to get to the fan without taking the complete laptop apart. Is the 1720 really this hard to get to the fan or am i overlooking something?

I really don't feel like taking the screen off and then the keyboard just to get the fan.

Dell :: Cleaning A Notbook With A Vacuum?

Jul 4, 2008

I was looking for ways to clean my aging Dell 1710 and I came across a blog on the Dell site The person says that it is better to use a vacuum instead of compressed air to clean the heatsink and fan. I though everyone used compressed air, first time heard of sucking out dirt and dust.

Dell :: E6400 Screen Cleaning

Jan 21, 2009

I ordered a certified refurb and the machine is great except the former owner attempted to clean the screen and left tracks all over it.

I've searched for the best method to clean the screen and the consensus seems to be using a 50% isopropyl alcohol solution onto a lint free microfiber or soft cloth and to go in small circular or one way motions.

Anyone have great success cleaning their screens with minimal smudging? Does this warrant contacting dell to get the screen replaced?

the smudge tracks are significant when the screen is off but otherwise when using the machine they are not noticeable. Otherwise no dead pixels and no other problems.

I'd like to clean the screen if I can, I've been meaning to clean my d820 anyway, I havent' cleaned that screen sine I've gotten it.

Dell :: Cleaning The Fans On A M1730

Apr 5, 2009

I was convinced that i had some background program running that was using too many resources, or some anti virus running , so i basically disabled everything that could be causing my fps to drop and still the problems continued.

I had the laptop on my lap the other day and noticed that it was unusually hot, i installed Speedfan and it gave me an idle temperature of

80c for both GPUS (8800s)

This seems to be rather high and im keen to find out if my fans are blocked or not and this could be causing my fps problems.

I have never used compressed air on my computer because im worried about just blowing the dust further inside the computer .....

Dell :: New M6400 And Case Cleaning

Jan 28, 2009

I removed a label from the palm rest of my M6400. Unfourtunately it left behind a sticky residue. In my defense it was the "regulatory information is under the battery" sticker and I am pretty sure it is supposed to be easy to remove.

Dell :: Cleaning Ultra-Sharp WUXGA Screen

Apr 6, 2008

What do you use to clean your screens with? I have grubby little fingerprints ALL over mine, and it is especially annoying on black screens in movies/games and such.

I almost bought a pack of normal "LCD Cleaning Wipes" but then I noticed it had Alcohol in it and shyed away from it. Why? I'm assuming that Alcohol would hurt the sensitive gloss finish on the screen, but my assumption could be wrong (and hopefully it is, would be much simpler to use those wipes). I also tried just using a dry wash cloth and just gently rubbing the prints off, but it only smeared them, and I'm afraid I'll damage the screen if I push any harder than I already am. Using a wet wash cloth seemed to have no effect either.

So how about it? What method do YOU use, and find best, to clean your screens?

Dell :: Cleaning Inspiron 1720 Media Direct Buttons

Apr 7, 2009

With my recent acquisition of a Studio XPS 16, I am selling my Inspiron 1720 to a friend of mine (yep he's getting a good deal and I am throwing in 200 or 300 bucks worth of stuff to boot because he's a good guy),

but I've noticed that my play and volume up media direct buttons tend to stick as if they've got some buildup behind them.

I hardly ever eat when using my laptop and I've never spilled anything on it so I'm guessing it's just normal buildup gunk but I'd rather take it apart and clean it to give it to him as clean as possible, if it's a relatively easy task.

HP/Compaq :: Cleaning Out The Fan On The Dv5t

Jan 27, 2009

I wanted to clean the fan of my laptop by using the air compressor periodically so that dust wouldn't build up. Is there a recommended way to do it? Does the fan suck from the bottom and blow out the back and side? I was planning to blow the air compressor into the bottom side where i believe the fan is sucking air. Is it ok to do this while the laptop is on or should I turn it off?

Acer :: 5740G Keyboard Cleaning

May 17, 2010

I have a problem with my keyboard. I think I've been unlucky enough that something has gotten under my 3 and t keys. Not just sitting underneath but in the mechanism itself it would seem. They still work, but they are stiff and I really have to press them to get them to respond. Is there anything I can try to fix it that won't require me to void my warranty or take it to get fixed?
