RE: Chat hub
Michael - just remove the sides of the case and point a fan inside it. Works wonders...

Ah, it's a laptop...

What you can do that often helps is to get some freeze spray or air duster (If the latter, hold the can upside down so you spray in a liquid). Pin the fans in place with a cocktail stick or two. Blast the liquid gas in and let it evaporate. Let the laptop warm back up for a while before using it. This worked fine on a P4 laptop that overheated before it finished booting - I was able to clock it back up to full speed with no overheating.

RE: Chat hub
At long last an internet tech came out and determined we had an upstream issue which is why, after all the bad weather, we could only use the internet on occasion.  Like the forum he went out his way to determine the cause, work around it, and make sure we could stream and surf at the same time.  So pardon me if I rant a little more than is my custom.  I'm just blown away by everyone's enthusiasm on this board, much like I'm blown away by being able to stream HD and surf.

Morning all.

The Assistants and I are off to the park. Unfortunately it isn't a very nice day but at least it isn't raining.

I can relate to that Bob!

I don't want to get the work clothes on. There are two happy Assistants digesting their breakfasts here...

Liquid butane or propane work too. But if you use that, remove the battery, use it outside and let it ventilate for a couple of hours before thinking of using it.

If you don't wedge the fans so they can't spin, you will destroy their bearings.

Check the ingredients of the spray for anything flammable or that will leave residues. You don't want to leave crud on your heatsinks.

RE: Chat hub
Afternoon All - I am in for a break - a coffee and a vape - been all morning painting the garage - I started early and that is it done. We are having our best spell of weather for over 2 years here. The garden is all planted the pots are planted as well - I am over a week ahead of schedule with outside jobs - I even had to water the garden last night - the first time for years - it took me nearly an hour to find the watering can[Image: smile.gif]. I am going to vape my Magma dripper with some nice custard just now. I hope you all have a pleasant day.
