I updated the BIOS yesterday and after using it today, i realised that the laptop was heating up, even though i wasn't playing any games. Just watching some videos on youtube using Microsoft Edge. The bottom side of the laptop, the one below the keyboard, felt hotter than usual. Same for the part right above the fan, one where the power button is.
Never had an issue before the update as it never used to get hot enough for me to feel it unless I was playing a heavy game. It only gets better if I use the extreme cooling feature, but that shouldn't be the case for regular browsing.
Could this BIOS update be the reason for my laptop heating up? Please help.

Welcome to the Community,
What BIOS update did you install?

It's the latest one. BIOS version 4KCN41WW. I updated it on 15/1/2018.
Seemed like the internat fan stopped working thus the CPU temperature was going above 55 degree Celcius. Only the extreme cooling feature was bringing the temperature back to normal.
Can the BIOS update cause such a problem?
