Is it too hot for laptops July 21, 2006

Posted by Ray in Computers & Internet.

The British heatwave seems to be too much for poor old laptop hard drives. I work in a PC Maintenance and repair business and we have seen a marked increase in dead or dying laptop hard drives. Over the last week we have had at least 8 laptops with faults, all of which were hard drives giving up and needing replacement.

Maybe the cooling systems in British laptops are not designed to cope with an unexpected increase in British temperatures which are not usually this hot. Of course it may be pure coincidence, (very probable), but it is unusual. I cannot complain though as it is good for business and ensures we all get food on the table.

The laptops have consisted of various brands including Dell, Hewlett Packard, Samsung and Advent. All have needed a replacement hard drive.

Just a thought and if anyone in the trade of repairs has seen the same increase please let me know.
