Sept 28- My Homemade Laptop Cooling Fan

My Laptop was making a loud noise as it becomes hot after several hours online. I knew that sound was coming from the fan because when I put my ears near it , the buzzing sound came from there, I could feel the heat too. My laptop needed a cooling fan to reduce the heat so that the CPU fan would cut down on the speed that caused the noise. I tried stacking up the telephone books and enclopedias, still the noise exist. Finally, my hubby suggested that I should use the egg tray, that has 30 holes to allow the heat to flow out. It was a brilliant idea! I took 2 empty egg trays made from recycled paper, put them underneath my laptop. In 10 minutes, the noise had gradually reduced. Don't have to waste money on another computer accessories, just use the egg tray!! Have you got any DIY ideas for your laptop or gadgets? my photo: egg tray

Acer often has that problem (but I was told others often do the same after a while). I had to use some block of wood (my kids' old toy years ago) to put at 4 corners. Worked fine for another 7-9 yrs before it got too weird to save.

@peachpurple (When my little ones saw their mum did that, they thought the idea was cool, so they took things out from under my laptop and played with them for a while, then said, 'here mum, you could have them back!' ).

As far as I know egg trays can be used for sound proof walls

do you wait for it to cool down, or do you use it while it's one top of the egg tray?
