How to recognize overheating
If your All-in-One 200t is overheating you will experience certain symptoms. The machine’s cooling fans will work continuously and noisily at maximum speed. The system will suddenly shut down by itself without warning, perhaps after only 5 to 10 minutes of operation. Your PC will work fine when it is idling, but will shut down soon after you start to use any software that makes the processor work. If you have any of these symptoms then it is reasonable to assume that your laptop has got an overheating problem, and the next thing is to try to understand what the reason behind it.
Identifying the cause
Of course, your 200t may have a fault or, in some rare cases, a design problem that means that you will need to speak to your dealer. It can also be caused due to use in above recommended temperature. But the most common explanation by far is either one or both of these. You are using your 200t in a way that is preventing the cooling system from working properly or your 200t’s cooling system is clogged with dirt and dust. The good news in both cases is that it is really easy to fix. There is no need to return your machine to the manufacturer and no need for big repair bills. My suggestion is that you try the solutions here before you assume anything else.
The solution is obvious: clean the cooling system out and then keep it clean.
Doing this is an easy procedure and it does not need you to dismantle your machine or to do anything that will invalidate your warranty. You need two things, an aerosol air duster (available from all good PC Stores). A vacuum cleaner with a crevice tool. The procedure is quite simple: Make sure that the system is switched off and disconnected from any power source before you begin. Use the air duster to dislodge the dust by blowing through the intake grills and exhaust ports. At the same time suck the loose dust up with the vacuum cleaner.
