"Really hot" is not normal. Call customer service and ask for a technical revision.

Re: Lenovo G550 Hot touchpad.

use http://www.snapfiles.com/reviews/Speccy/Speccy.html to see what your HDD temp is. 60c and under is ok. It's 75c+ that is not normal. My G555 no longer has a hot drive as I upgraded to a lower power faster HDD. Some think that the faster 7200rpm from the normal 5400rpm causes more heat due to the faster spinning speed. But mine is not as mine stays around 35-40c. Plus I do not use mine, I use a USB mouse.

[ Edited ]

do you work in a dusty area? you might want to get compressed air and aim it at the grate thingy to the left of your ethernet port. This would blow out the dust from the inside.

You could also try defragmenting your c drive to help your hard drive not run as much, therefore causing less heat.

I'm not sure what advised you that. But snapfiles is safe.

But here is the actual website for them --> HERE

Re: Lenovo G550 Hot touchpad.

sir i downloaded ti from their site.but itt was still the same but i downloaded it anyway.....

and the measurements regarding the temprature is somethin like this--

 

cpu- normally it keeps at 39 to 40 or soetimes it lessens down to 33 or 34 degrees

and the HDD-- it keeps at 40 degrees and sometimes to 56 or 57 especially when i play ma game  MICROSOFT FLIGHT SIMULATOR X  and even the temprature of cpu goes at the same level of 56-58 degrees.

 

so is it normal sir.or do i have to worry bout it..??

 

thnk u sir.
