CPU Hack – How to your Control your Computer/Laptop CPU Speed!

computer-last-longer

Recently, I fixed my old HP laptop that had a CPU overheating problem.  I even replaced the CPU fan with a new one but still, the HP laptop keeps freezing because the AMD Turion 64 CPU on it was simply poorly designed as far as heating problems were concerned.

However I did find a great free software that solved my problems and also helps on desktop PCs too.  This might be the best free tool ever for Windows XP/Vista users yet.

The free CPU management software is called Notebook Hardware Control (NHC).  It runs

Today, I decided to clean my desktop computer’s CPU fans since my computer kept slowing down a lot lately.  I knew it probably was due to my CPU fans collecting with dust as I have been using this desktop PC for about 2 years without any cleaning.

To my surprise, I found that it was indeed my CPU fans that weren’t working at all as the metal fins have been all stuck with large collection of dust.  You can see later in this DIY how dirty my CPU fan was…

So, here’s how to clean your CPU fans. (This is for most desktop PCs.)

Laptop DIY – How to Fix Your Laptop!

99% of most laptop problems are caused by your CPU cooling fans (these are the metal thingees that are next to your CPU) being blocked by dust.  Most of the time, 6 months of everyday use will cause enough dust to collect in your cooling fans, which will either make your laptop run really slow or simply freeze up.

When dust collects in your cooling fans, your CPU fan will no longer work with you but actually against you, building heat on your laptop’s CPU, causing all kinds of havoc among frozen screens and boot up problems.

But don’t worry, it’s very easy t

Laptop DIY – How to Clean Your Laptop CPU Fans!

laptop-cooling-fan

The #1 cause for laptop failures are the CPU fan grills filling up with dust and making your fans no longer operable.  Once you start hearing extra “fan sounds” in your laptop, it probably means your CPU fans are stuck with dust and it’s time to clean them.  If you don’t, your CPU will overheat and the laptop will ultimately give you the blue screen of death now and then.

But it’s not too hard to clean your laptop CPU fans, the hard part is just getting to it depending on the brand.

HP laptops in general have horrible fan-grill designs, I have p
