Hi All. I've recently noticed my laptop is getting hot readings and I was wondering if any one might give some advice on what it might be. I have noticed it most often when I am watching streaming vids. It sometimes gets up to 85-95 degrees when watching a youtube vid but other times it remains at around 60 when watching other youtube vids. I was having problems with shockwave crashing sometimes, so I went an made sure I had the most updated player. I started keeping an eye on my temps. and noticed that when I start up, it can even get up to around 80 degrees as well, and if running an app. like an adaware or virus scan app. it can get as hot also and shut down. I took my laptop apart over the weekend, cleaned out the fan, and heat sync (wasnt much there at all), and any other spaces there might be build up, but I am still getting these high readings. I dont see it as being browser related, as Ive run chrome, IE, and firefox, and still get all the same temps. It cant be graphic card related because if I run an app when i have nothing else open it still gets these temps, and the weird thing is, when I put my hand near the exhaust vent, the air coming out doesnt feel like it's as hot as it should be with these readings. I also checked my CPU and sometimes it's at 100% reading when it gets this hot, and other times it might be at only 43% or so and still gives me these hot readings. I am using Notebook Hardware Control to determine the temps. and just to make sure I wasnt just getting bad readings from it, I turned it off and ran a simple app. and the fan reved right up like it would if I had it running. Curious if anyone has any ideas on what it might be. Thanks in advance for any advice. PS. If I have nothing running at all, or just say gmail open, after a few seconds, it will go down to normal operating temperatures. I am also running 2GB of crucial ram, and it says I have plenty in Task Manager when this occurs. Than you.
