If you suspected that the internal partslaptop or computer are constantly heated, then you need to think about the health of the fan (or cooler). If it poorly cools the heated elements, then they can quickly exit their system.
Consider how to test the cooler.
Checking the cooler performance
Check if the cooler of your computer or laptop works in several ways:

- special applications.
Verify on another device
If you see that the cooler remains motionlesswhen the computer is running, then you can check it by connecting to another device. If it does not work there, it must be cleaned and repaired or replaced with a new one. This option is applicable to both computers and laptops.
For those who do not want to search for a long time the cause of the breakdown,you can advise to install a special application that can determine the cooler's performance. As an example, you can use the program SpeedFan. After downloading and installing, change the language in this program by selecting Configure → Options → Language.
After that, start the main menu. In the window that opens, you can analyze the status of the fans and the temperature of all devices that are connected to them.
If the temperature values are too high, then next to the name of the device will be a fire icon. To adjust at the bottom, select the appropriate fan and click the "Up" button.
If there is no normalization of temperature conditions, then you need to remove the cooler, blow it and clean it.
It should be noted that experts recommend that the cooler be cleaned once a year for normal operation of the device.
If your cooler does not work very well, you need to know how to overclock it.
