Does overheating cause slow down of laptop?

HP Recommended

Ok so I've had my laptop for close to 2 years now and just around last year my laptop starter getting really noisy and really hot but my laptop still ran pretty fast. Now moving to just alittle short of a week ago my laptop still tending to get really loud and hot but the thing now is my laptop is starting to act slow for example it takes forever for me to get on a internet page and even once i get on it tends to freeze up for a short time every once and awhile, and if i close my laptop up and re open it it gets even slower so im constantly restarting my laptop.... I just don't know what to do im horrible with technological things so if anyone could help figure out how to make my lap top becoem fast again and not so noisy it would mean alot!

Hi,

 

Heat will definitely slow the machine down and it can shut itself down to protect the CPU. More noise is due to the fan must work very hard. Freezing is just the beginning of more serious problem. Please try the following suggestions to keep your laptop runs cooler:

The hard drive is usually the most common component to fail in a laptop and is also a cause of most of the symptoms you describe. Heat,btw, seems a big contributor to hard drive failure.

 

You can easily replace a hard drive and for relatively little cost compared to a new laptop. You install a new one,boot with HP Recovery Discs to install Windows ,software & drivers and are good for another couple of years.

 

A laptop cooling pad with fan aids in keeping a laptop running cooler and making components last longer. I use one under my laptops 99% of the time.

 

If you need more help with selecting a new hard drive and/or obtaining Recovery Discs just ask!

Hi there!

 

Heat WILL cause many components to fail. The first symptoms of an overheating computer is slowness of computer leading up to error messages which will eventually crash  / Destroy the computer with it's components.

Hi @virginmary

 

ok, below is a analysis for what you can do to fix the laptop :

 

Problem : usualy after 1-2 years, your laptop needs proper service, just like your car when you take it for service from time to time, problems such as accumulated dust could slow down the performance, the Paste for the GPU ( its basically the glue lets say of the graphics card ) gets melted, so you need to repair that part as that plays a big role on the performance when it comes to gaming. 

 

Solution  : Get an SSD ( Solid State Drives ) they dont HEAT ! and they are Faster and noiseless ! there is no Physical Disk like the normal HDD, its a FLASH ! just like your memory stick ! and guess what ? they are much cheaper now ! im planning to upgrade my laptop with the service with a SSD and most IMPORTANT install the Windows on it ! if you have 2 HDD i mean, make it primary. that could cost you a bit but definitly worth it ! 

Another solution is to service it at a technician, it should cost about 50-100 max, depends, he should clean it up, replace anything that needs to be replaced, maybe format and re-intall windows ( not suggested though i personally prefer to manually fix windows for instance, instead of format but still a fast solution lets say ) 

Another solution could be to check if your HDD is at 90% usage, usualy the HDD is starting to work slower if its full, so try to at least run a Disk Analyser and identify where is your big DATA and delete or transfer them to an external HDD.

 

I hope i was at help ! but fortunatly or unfortunatly laptops should be treated like cars 🙂

Yes, I have a website For Internet Tricks and everyday am using my lap for too much of works like browsing and gaming. When am getting some heat in my lap, am also notice that my lap got stuck for open software and websites. keep your laptop in normal temp area and end tasks of unwanted programs. Then you will definitely feel the difference.
