Protect your computer against overheating during summer!
Now that it’s summer, does your computer crash for no apparent reason? Do you notice any distortion or graphic errors on your monitor? Does the drone of your computer get on your nerves? If so, this might all be the result of your hardware being overheated.
Outdoor temperatures of well over 90 degrees F are not only difficult for us to live with, they also take a toll on our computers. Especially if your computer’s cooling system is too small, you can actually see how the dangers of defective hardware and data loss increase from moment to moment.
Find a better location for your computer
Whoever packs a computer into a small niche under a table is actually cutting off the air circulation inside the casing and increasing the risk of overheating. Make sure your computer is standing as free as possible!
Keep the casing closed
Opening the casing doesn’t necessarily improve the cooling system. The cooling system of a computer functions only as a result of its interior fans creating a constant stream of air that blows cool air in and hot air out.
Clean up and make room
To keep the computer’s interior air circulation running freely, carefully remove any dust that’s settled and untangle cables that are all twisted up. Using cable binders in the right place will end up doing a lot to improve the circulation. In addition, de-installing unnecessary programs will not only make your PC run faster, but it may decrease the strain on your PC’s CPU and hard disk drive.
Play it safe
O&O DiskImage allows you to create an image of your entire system with just a few clicks of the mouse – this image will include the operating system along with all your settings and data! This can be a real lifesaver if, in spite of everything you’ve done, the computer just doesn’t hold up against high temperatures. O&O DiskImage will even let you restore the image onto a different kind of hardware or a new computer.
To be safe and not sorry, you can get the new O&O DiskImage 14 Pro for just US$ 10 (instead of 49.95), or O&O DiskImage 14 Server Edition for just US$ 49 (instead of US$ 299)!
