Good evening all,
My SL400 of late has been running hotter than it should be... Usually, when running like I normally do, it peaks around 40oC (it can hit 70oC or so on a hot day or if I'm pushing the graphics on it hard), which I consider "normal" (not the graphics thing though, that seems odd because it has, in the past, played games fine), however of late it seems that it gets quite hot: it sits on a stand\cooling pad thing and is at the moment hovering around the 80oC mark, and will occasionally whizz up the fans quite loudly.
I'm not sure if a fan in it has died, has become gunked up with dust, or if it's something else entirely, so I guess my question is, is there anything I can do about it, or will I need to call Lenovo Support and get them to take a look at it? It is still in warranty.
Solved! Go to Solution.
