Hi friends

Unfortunatly, i witnessed a family home going up in flames yesterday. All because the laptop over heated and exploded. 

So i want to use this post as a guide to how we can prevent such incidents from happening. 


Feel free to recommend and post your ideas. 


  • Please place your laptop on a hard and flat surface
  • Make sure the cooling fans are not covered 
  • Clean the cooling fans

In this extra hot weather, please take extra care with all electrical products as they can over heat.

Oh no Smiley Sad

There are laptop cooling stands on Amazon, but a hard and flat surface ought to suffice for most.

Spot on !
Never use a laptop on a bed or pillow or soft furnishing as it may smother those vents and cause overheating.
The same applies to anything electical that has a cooling fan, such as Xbox etc . . .
Have a look on YouTube as to how to keep the vents and fans clean and cool running.
Thanks shabbas
