Using more and more efficient hardware for your laptop is not going to be very well for your laptop against the dust. Stop dust from getting entered into the laptop is not an easy job. If you have a dust problem with your laptop then you may require a lot of knowledge of your laptop internals to clear fans of your laptop. But I suggest you not to open your laptop screws without knowing the complete knowledge of your laptop hardware. Personly I suggest you go to the service center and ask your laptop to be services that will be good.

Laptop Shuts Down Due To Less Flow Of Air Through The Bottom Of Your Laptop

One thing that I additionally noticed that the laptop only shut down while playing high graphics games and more often when the charger is also plugged in.
We all know the whenever we charge a battery in produce heat energy. But this heat energy is not making your laptop to shut down. As you can play the low graphics games or do your regular laptop work without any problem. We use more and more powerful hardware on our laptop this powerful hardware also causes heat.  This heat also not makes your laptop to shut down as you can play graphics games when the charger is not plugged in. So, what causes our laptop to shut down, the reason behind that when you play high graphics games with your laptop is being charged. Here both the charging and the high performance both cause a lot of heats when these two mixes this will give rise to heat more than the safe point of your laptop.


You might think what is this safe point?

The safe point of heat in your laptop is set by the manufacturer when the heat crosses a certain point it will automatically shut your laptop down so that there is no damage to the laptop hardware by the heat usually this is a failsafe mechanism and this is important too. there may be some way to stop this fail-safe but I don’t recommend you to do that, because you may end with damaging your laptop internals.

As now you will get the idea of this safe point for heat. In my testing that I have done with my laptop, I found that the laptop shut down at the temperature of above 90 degrees.

So, how can we protect our laptop from this problem?

First of all, keep your laptop on a flat surface while playing games, even the bed sheet can stop the air from going into your laptop make sure there is a proper flow of air in the bottom of your laptop.

I hope this will solve your problem if not then you can also invest in a good quality cool pad for your laptop.
