my laptop sometimes get very hot after prolonged usage, and the only method i use to cool it down is to elevate the laptop and use a fan to circulate the air underneath the laptop...anyone of you guys here have other more effective methods to cool the laptop?

This may not be the cheapest way, but can try using the laptop in an airconditioned room. :embrass:

No worries. Unless your room is really very very hot itself, the increased temp usually wont kill your notebook.

My notebook runs 24 X 7, no kidding. The table where my notebook sits on is hot but my notebook runs fine for the past 2 years. (My notebook runs as a ftp and http server)

Can always raise it a little above the table mah. Maybe put a pair of chopsticks below or something. My friend has a small air circulator blowing at his laptop and himself all the time when he's using it, lol.

ur laptop cools naturally when running??
Mine definitely does.
Laptops are designed to be used, perhaps for many hours!
I never use such cooling devices as I think they are unneccessary, and, running my laptop for 3 years now with no extra cooling, no problems. Prolonged hours? It's only off when I sleep - 8 hours a night, sometimes I leave it on overnight too... no problem at all - but also, no intensive stuff. And when it is on, I'm using it...

Just leave it on a desk and not on carpet.

Perhaps it's a difference between Australian weather and Singapore weather? We don't need such things here in Australia :bsmilie:
