View Full Version : Asus g74 - Does it overheat while at external screen?

05-18-2012, 06:54 AM
My current setup is that I have my laptop plugged to my external screen when I'm at home. I close the laptop lid and use it like that. However I am wondering if there could happen any damage, to the laptop screen, if I play for a long time? If the laptop gets warm and goes to the laptop screen? But then again, it has great cooling so I am not sure...

nope just make sure when you close your lid that your keyboard lit light are off. i am doing exactly the samething for like a good 3 month now. so far so good. i kinda missed the laptop screen since it's so sharp and nice D;

Awesome, but why should the keyboard light be off? :)

I think he's assuming that you don't want little LED lights shining at your screen for hours.
However I am pretty sure the keyboard lights work like the refrigerator light does. Auto off when closed.
