I have a Satellite L450D-113 and was wondering if anyone could recomend a cooling solution. I am currently using a cooling mat but this is no longer sufficient. I was wondering if there was a way to change the internal fan to something more powerful. This is becoming a more frequent problem and any help would be greatly appreciated.
Why you want another cooling solution? The internal cooling module and fan are enough and designed to cool the CPU and other components well. I don’t see a reason for another cooling module or external cooling module.
Probably dust is blocking the cooling fan at the moment so you noticed an higher temperature. So try to clean it using compressed air spray to blow out the dust.
Furthermore it’s important that you use the original Toshiba display driver. Other 3rd party display drivers can also cause overheating so I would recommend installing the newest display driver from Toshiba page.
Don’t forget that the notebook should be placed on a clean disk with enough free space around it. Don’t put the notebook on your bed or tablecloth.
