Default How to Find Laptop Temperature

Do you know how to find laptop temperature? Do you know why you should? Many laptop computer users take it for granted that the machine temperature simply regulates itself. This is generally true, but things can sometimes go wrong. Knowing your laptop's temperature will help in taking care of the machine, optimizing performance and being aware of the proper operating environments.

Why Worry?
Laptop temperatures can affect the computerís performance. While fans and sensors work together internally to regulate temperature, when one or the other isnít working well, the laptop can suffer. Anything from sluggish performance, unnecessary reboots and noticeable decrease in speed is possible from a laptop that is running too hot. Prolonged heat can permanently damage circuits as well.

Desktop CPUs have several fans that keep the computer running at the perfect temperature. Due to the laptopís size, generally only one fan is in operation. Because laptops are portable, they are often used on the lap, on a bed or sofa or rested on other places without optimum ventilation. Users should always be aware of the environment in which a laptop is being used and watch where it is placed.

How to Find the Temperature
Temperature sensors send signals that can be read by the user if you know where to look. There are many different types of laptop temperature monitors on the market that show the current temperature and let you store this data in a log to track long-term variations. Users who are interested in making frequent checks or comparisons of laptop temperature can purchase and install one of these software applications quickly and easily.

What It Means
A laptop is designed to run optimally at a certain temperature. While manufacturer specifications will differ, generally a laptop should measure no hotter than 60 degrees Celsuis to avoid any adverse effects. If you find your laptop is running hotter than that or you are concerned that consistently high temperatures may damage your laptop, consider purchasing a cooling pad. This pad hooks to the bottom of the laptop and aids the fan exhaust in regulating the internal temperature.
