Laptop heating issue


My laptop is constantly having overheating issues. Could the heating cause be related to Mcafee software ?

How can I check this? 192.168.l.l

Re: Laptop heating issue

Things you should consider for your laptop with the best cooling system are:

  • Turn off your laptop, unplug the cords, and remove the battery (if possible).
  • Inspect the vents and fan for dirt or other signs of blockage.
  • Use compressed air to clean your laptop's vents.
  • Change your system's fan control settings.
