A Quick and Easy Fix for Overheating NEO Laptop

Is your laptop screechy and overheating after a few minutes of using it?
Well, now is the perfect time for you to get that fixed. Otherwise, you’d see blue screens displaying on your laptop and it would just shut down by itself.

Forget about the "I'll fix this later" or "I'll pay someone to repair that later" mentality. Next thing you know, the motherboard gets burnt-out and you lost the data that you so dearly care about. You just have to deal with the overheating problem now. And, the good thing is, you can even do it yourself, like I did. 

I am not an expert of fixing laptops nor am I an experienced technician or repair man. But I do have a habit of researching for solutions and watching other people do the fixing on youtube.

When I opened the rear panel of the laptop, I found the culprit -- dust, a bunch of them.

Indeed, the most common cause of the overheating problem is the bunch of dust piled up in the vents and fan through the cooling channel.

If you're laptop has never been cleaned for years, then, expect a huge pile of dust obstructing the air flow of the fan.

This is exactly why the laptop overheated, made a squeaky noise and shut down by itself. Thus, you need to clean it out from time to time, even when you're busy. To do so, you just have to open the rear panel by yourself and, if necessary, take a photo of each step you take. You never know you might lose a few parts or misconnect a wire.

Let me show you how to do it.
