Keep Your Laptop from Overheating

As I was blog hopping tonight, Demcy latest post caught my eye. I thought it would be great to do some feedback about here laptop over heating and she could cook egg because of how really hot it was.

Anywho!!!

Many laptops overheat because the fan on the bottom is blocked, and the hard drive then quickly fails. By following this simple step, you can keep your laptop cool and happy.

Put a small book or item (like the docking station for your iPod) under your computer's battery when sitting at your desk. This slight tilt allows a lot more air to flow under the laptop, keeping it significantly cooler. If a book doesn't help, you can try something more ugly. Try sticking four sockets from an egg tray on four corners of your laptop. Either you can stick them with a sticky tape/masking tape or use hook and loop tape for flexible design.
Buy a laptop cooling mat. There are many brands to choose from (Thermaltake, Xion, Targus) and are available at computer stores like Best Buy or online from newegg.com.

Tips:
Simply add the spare wire grill tray from your toaster oven or even your regular oven. Balance is perfect and air circulation is just as perfect. never block the fan for your laptop. Do not block the ventilation under the laptop with the tape.
