HP Laptop Dust Removal Software??

To whom it may concern:

 

I hear that Lenovo has a program called "Energy Management" and one of its functions is dust cleanup. It maxes the fans out for a few seconds then slows them down and maxes them out again and repeats that for some time. I think this would be really benifical for HP to add to its HP Support Assistant or Advisor (or both) software. Blowing compressed air really fast thru the computer seems to work, so what the difference with the fan blowing air really hard. If you run it regulary, it would be able to free up small bits of dust and blow them out before the fans become to clogged to clean without dismantling the computer. If anyone knows of any ways to do this without HP software, while HP makes this (which i know they wont because they don't see the benifits), please let me know. 

 

Pros:

-------

1. Cleans up and removes dust

2. Allows a user to perform maintenance with software that once required manual hard work

3. Easy for anyone to do (even with little computer experience)

 

Cons:

-------

1. Can't think of any cons

 

Please take time to consider this HP and people and please reply what you think. It would be much simpler than taking apart your computer, and would mkae your computer last possibly much longer. Please don't delete this tread, keep it alive. I, hopefuly we, want HP to make this change.

 

Thanks for your consideration,

 

Alex

Re: HP Laptop Dust Removal Software??

compress air is the simplest way to clean your pc of dust and some times those dust are stubborn to remove and carefully handling the fan on such as cpu be very very careful with that

 

and regular compress air cleaning goes a long way preserving your pc and also reduces heat strain on the components

Please provide Kudos to whom has provided answers or

Re: HP Laptop Dust Removal Software??

I would bet the Lenovo software runs the fan in reverse when cleaning.

Not to mention would void your warranty since this isn't a HP software that one should be using since it isn't a Lenovo product.

Based on what independent peer review? If you want to really clean your fan and heatsink out from years of not doing so you will need to dissemble the system and do a through cleaning and redo the thermal paste as well that will do to help remove thermal heat out and way form the critical components.

Re: HP Laptop Dust Removal Software??

Well Lenovo is smarter anyway. They don't put the fan intakes on the bottom of the "laptop".  Apple uses the same intelligence to avoid overheating and the lawnmower effect. Then again my Envy X2 is fanless which is the best solution.

Your last line is only true if your not a power user....go gaming and you will need a fan to vent heat away otherwise your system will die from thermal overload or meltdown. No one computer manfacture is smarter they are designed for specific reason and design and if you don't know why then no amount of explaining will do here.

Re: HP Laptop Dust Removal Software??

I have not experienced any hp/compaq laptops with thought out proper cooling. However, both lenovo and apple build high power laptops that go for hours at full blast without overheating. I prefer not to use laptops at all for heavy lifting and will never buy a fan equipped one again. I'm not a gamer but do a lot of video editing. For that I have a quad core desktop with a 384 core transcoding video card and ssd drives.
