Why is my Asus Laptop Getting Too Hot?

A Asus laptop can get hot and overheat because of  dust build-up on the fans, a unacceptable operating environment, or using outdated BIOS.

  • Dust building up on CPU fans
  • Outdated BIOS
  • Having too many programs open at once
  • Using a faulty battery
  • Using the laptop during hot weather


  1. Dust build-up on the fans

Often it is seen that due to improper circulation of air through the vents and the fans collect a lot of dust. This acts as a heat sink, which increases the internal temperature of the laptop while in use.


  1. Using the laptop in a incorrect environment

When a person is using the laptop in an environment that is very hot above 95 Fahrenheit or very cold below 41°F, it may affect the laptop’s temperature. Using it on a soft surface like a couch below our bed might also lead to overheating the laptop.


  1. BIOS is Outdated

When the BIOS is updated to the latest version, overheating problems are generally avoided. Not updating this causes a lag in the software and heats the laptop.


  1. Abnormal CPU usage

Often when a lot of software programs are running on the computer simultaneously, this leads to a burden on the CPU, and therefore the CPU gets heated and ends up overheating the laptop.


  1. Poor build material

The material used to make the laptop may often be the cause of overheating. Some materials do not let the heat escape, and overheating is not understandable.


  1. Faulty battery

Often if the battery has not been changed for a long time, it will cause overheating. The overheating starts when the charger is plugged in.


What are the symptoms of Asus laptop overheating?

Overheating of the laptop is not always correctly figured out by using a third-party application, as in most cases, the external case temperature is not correctly recorded. To understand the laptop is overheating, one should


1.Increase in temperature

Check if it is becoming difficult to use the laptop on one lap due to the increasing temperature. If temperature increases beyond a certain degree, it is impossible to use the laptop on the lap, and it is understood that the laptop is overheating.


2.Noisy fans

Overheating the laptop and making a lot of noise as the fans cannot run properly. Improper running of the CPU and GPU fans cause difficulty in air circulation; causing loud noises.


3.Lagging Programs

And overheating laptop does not allow proper functioning, and the software is being used and starts lagging. The software takes a lot of time to load and function.


4.Laptop is crashing

A laptop, when overheated, may crash and turn off due to the excess heat. The crashing is a vital symptom that the laptop has been overheated.


How to Stop a Asus Laptop Overheating

An overheating laptop needs to be treated immediately to avoid damage of its internal parts. To fix and overheating laptop one should


1. Find the heat source

It is important to know why the laptop is being heated. Due to any intricate internal cause, it might only be serviceable by the Service center. However, sometimes the cause is understandable and can be fixed immediately.


2. Clear vents routinely

Laptops often overheat because of improper circulation, and therefore clearing the air vents will allow proper circulation of air and help the laptop fans run smoothly and not overheat.


3. Avoid overusing the CPU

Running too many applications on the laptop at the same time overburdens to CPU. To avoid this, one should try to close an application once used and turn off the Internet browser once the work has been done


4.Update the POS software

Running applications which are not updated may cause pressure on the CPU and cause overheating. It is always better to update the POS and the software of the laptop.


5.Check batteries

Often, batteries cause internal heating off the laptop, and checking them at regular intervals and replacing them when needed will prevent overheating of the laptop.


6.Use Cooling pads

Cooling pads help keep the temperature of the laptop low and do not allow overheating.


7.Surface matters

Always make sure to use the laptop on a cooling pad or a hard surface. Soft surfaces do not allow the heat to pass and absorb all the heat and help the laptop eliminate the excess heat.


The steps to be followed are:

  • Check for the source of heat
  • Unplug any external devices attached to the laptop
  • Unplug the charging cable
  • Open the task manager and check for any abnormal CPU usage
  • Shutting down the laptop and allowing it to cool then turn it on
  • Checking the thermal temperature of the room


Asus laptop overheated and won’t turn on

If your laptop has overheated and it’s not turning on, it might be due to an internal or external overheating problem.

This might be because the laptop has been overheated to a certain extent where it has stopped functioning. This is crucial as the internal damage takes place then.


How to fix

  • Hold the power button for 60 seconds and remove the battery and turn on the power again
  • If nothing works, then contact the service center as soon as possible


Asus laptop overheating and shutting down

The most likely cause of a Asus laptop overheating and shutting down is that the CPU fan is clogged. The fan is used to remove excess heat, and blockage can lead to the formation of the heating.

Overheating of a Asus laptop can be caused by the overuse of the CPU running a lot of programs at at once.

How to fix:

  • Remove it from any power charge
  • Remove any external devices attached to the laptop immediately
  • Use an air compressor to blow air back into the air vents
  • Try looking for damages in the battery
