So anyways, I originally, had my father's laptop the overheated quite often when running games on my laptop. So I had to think cold, and thought of the hot/cold packs that contain the blue gel and thought of a way to somehow have the laptop intake be able to take the cold air from the packs to cool down the laptop.
OK......Just to let you know. Im 12.....so I play lots of games on the Computer. And I have a laptop. But it keeps overheating...so........I needed a cooler for a laptop fast. The store ones cost to much or suk..so I I thought...think cold.....think cold....and thought of this. https://www.instructables.com/id/Laptop-cooler/

Step 1: Stuff
Edited April 6th 2011: Laptop. Hot/Cold gel packs, a large zip lock bag.
The stuff you need is: A laptop that has problems overheating, ice packs, and a large ziplock bag.
Step 2: Step 1
Edited April 6th 2011: Place the Hot/Cold Bag(s) into the ziplock baggie and place them evenly and then seal the bag without trapping the air inside.
First put all the ice packs into the bag and space them out. And also make sure that there is no air trapped inside
Step 3: Step 2
Edited April 6th 2011: Place the now completed cooling pack under your laptop. If it wobbles or moves around too much, have something like a book or box keep the laptop stable.
Take you new cooler and put it under your laptop. And if you notice its not stable. then put some to stedy it.
