Sony® VAIO X Series Overheating
Want to know more about the possible reasons for overheating of Sony VAIO X Series computer?
Overheating is one of the major problems with computers. As other computers, Sony VAIO X also suffers the heating problem. However, you can prevent your computer from this overheating problem. A Windows® application called Speed Fan can be used to determine the core temperature of your computer. There are several reasons for a computer getting overheated. On top of the processor there is a heat sink. Above the heat sink there is a computer fan to lessen the heat. If dust starts to accumulate over the fan, the fan cannot rotate with its pace and thus cooling gets affected. To avoid overheating, a computer should be placed in a cool place with proper ventilation. Overheating also occurs when your CPU runs more than the usual time.

Basic reasons behind overheating
If your Sony VAIO X series laptop reboots a lot or it gets shut down very often while you are operating on it, there is a possibility that it has been overheated. The most common reason behind overheating is the more than the usual usage of the CPU. If you are working on your PC on a stretch and simultaneously you are performing multitasking then there are chances that your PC gets overheated. Moreover, whatever heat is produced in a PC during the operation is blown away through the air vents. Dust gradually accumulates over fans and slows down the cooling process, which results in overheating. Overheating may also be caused by the high temperature environment.
Tips to avoid overheating
If you find that your Sony VAIO is overheating, then it is better to add an extra fan to avoid this overheating problem. If your problem of overheating still occurs then it may be due to the location where you have kept your laptop. Keep your laptop at cool place or a place with proper ventilation. If still you are suffering from the overheating problem then report this problem to Sony. You may also clean up clogged air vents and pathways of your laptop.
How can extra RAM help?
If your CPU runs more than the original specification, overheating occurs. This can be avoided by increasing the capacity of RAM. If you add more RAM, CPU need not be active all the time lowering the temperature and by default the performance also increases.
