Overworked and Overheated!

My poor pink laptop is overworked and overheated! I have been busier than usual this week. Aside from my usual jobs and assignments from my regular clients, I've been working hard on my blogs. I now have three blogs by the way. The successful launch of Meow Diaries yesterday officially made me a proud owner of three blogs now! I don't exactly know just how well I'd be able to handle three different blogs, but I am raring to find out. For now, I am still basking in the glory of my recent launch, which is somewhat amazing and a little unexpected coming from me who did not know head or tail about blogging when I first opened this blog to the world two years ago. So if you have not visited the lovely new home I've set up for my fluffy cats, do drop by. Benji is already waiting there for you to say hello!

Since I've been doing quite a bit of work and blogging on my faithful Dell laptop over the week, I do believe it's high time for me to do some laptop cleaning and tuning as well. First and foremost, I need to get one of those USB mini cooling fans for my laptop. This purchase is way overdue and as much as I'd like to continue procrastinating, I do need to get that fan ASAP. I seriously feel that my laptop is overheating, thanks to all the EC dropping, blogging, surfing and typing I do on a daily basis. In fact, I can feel the heat right now as I write this post. So buying a cooling fan is definitely number one on my agenda this week! duit

But right now, I need to perform a free registry scan on my laptop. You should too if you're having file extension problems. If you're like me who am not too well versed in PC related issues, you may not realize that the majority of File Extension plights stem from problems or errors with registry. For instance, say you recently installed a new software which becomes the default editor for a file format on your laptop or PC. Did you know that uninstalling that particular software does n
ot change your default editor back to the previous software you were using? Consequently, you might not be able to open certain files or you will receive error messages when you try opening them. It's a good thing I found out about this FREE registry scan for me to test my laptop then! I can finally fix those unwanted File Extension problems once and for all, so my work or blogging needs need not be interrupted anymore. See you in a bit! babai

PS. I am giving away FC Scoreboard points to the first three commenters, go for it!

YAY! Ane, thanks sweetie, another cool easy point for u on my SB! :)

Rizal,  April 29, 2009 11:28 AM

Olla.. as usual, terlepas lagi.. kekeke :-D

Wow, u r indeed working hard. Berdebuk-debuk post baru keluar. Kesian itu pinky lappy. Marzie, i think you should get yourself labtop cooler. Dont get those usb mini fans, better get a decent labtop cooler. Though opinion on using coolers does vary. I am using one right now. Lappy ni kan manja sket.. so kena jaga. huhu. In fact i am using a cooler plus standing fan next to me, jadik kira cam breezy la bila kerja2 menaip dan juga gaming. :-D

Speaking of registry, I love cc cleaner. Oh, btw, you may want to install cpu "n" gpu temp program. Senang tgk kalau temperature agak panas.

Oh hurry go change Lucas, am posting at MD soon sweetie! :)

Rizal,  April 29, 2009 12:00 PM

ohh lala.. labtop cooler.. yang letak kat bawah lappy.. so it will suck out the hot air or blow air to your lappy, thus boleh reduce 1-5C untuk cpu or gpu temp. Tapi ada yang tak percaya mende ni berfaedah. But for me, it works. Sempoi punyer, cost dalam rm20-rm30. Branded ones like coolermaster(CM) - running from rm80-rm150. Zalman lagi la rm100+. I have three actually, yang cikai, rm30, CM notepal B2 dan CM NotePal Infinite. Using Infinite now. Since my room, tak da air cond, faham2 jer la tghari boleh jadik tersangat panas. Especially kat palm rest area. But it does lower my temp. Ni pautan contoh -

You can get all these kat lowyat, macam2 bentuk n style ada.

since ur lappy ada dedicated grph card, better letak cpu or gpu program. so bila running boleh tgk temp cpu n gpu (graphics proc.unit). These temp indicators just cam bagitau how s your lappy is doing. As for me, when gaming, i ll make sure my gpu tak rise above 85C. Idle or normal surfings - my gpu around 63-67C n CPU on 45C. Speedfan salah satu contohnya, just type speedfan kat pakchik gugle.

Hope these help. Just hola kalau nak tanya lagi yer. :)

Oh wow, this is awesome Rizal, thank so much! Nak beli laptop cooler la lmcm ni, tak la mahal sangat kan? Laptop cooler and laptop fan, dua2 I nak beli la Rizal, but maybe not at LowYatt, cause it’s too far from my place. Shopping around here je. Wah wah pandai jugak u ye pasal pc pc ni Rizal, thanks again for ur very useful information and kalau still tak paham, nanti I kacau u lagi ahaks! :)

shemah,  April 29, 2009 12:32 PM

Wow!! Thanks rizal for the cooling pad info!! :-)

Mariuca,  April 29, 2009 12:37 PM

Very detailed kan Rizal punya info? Now I oso feel like buying that cooling pad Shemah! :)

shemah,  April 29, 2009 12:58 PM

Haaa tu lah.. I dapat one very buruk one marzie, came free when I bought my
lappy.. but I let syura use it because hers betul2 crash if overheated

Rizal,  April 29, 2009 1:25 PM

alamak, terlupa nak padam email. yer la marzie, you ni kan power @ celebrity blogger.. tak sampai beberapa minit penuh my inbox. lol.

Anyway, glad that you find the info useful. Sebab info useful tak dak extra points ka.. lol.. gurau. I recomment infinite la kalau cm. Kalau amik yang b2, pastikan ikut design lappy, sebab takut depan lappy ada headphone, mic jack tuu semua. So pilih.

usb fan pun ada, tak pakai.. beli rm10 jer kekeke. bunyi kuat siap ada bling2 lampu neon biru lagi. keke. mcm ufo pulak.

sila kacau jgn segan2 silu. lol
