HELP! G710 runs very hot and is incredibly slowed, barely capable of working with it.

Hello I bought a G710 like 6 months ago, so it isnt even very old.

Nowadays when I use it, it gets very hot after a while and slows down so much I can barely work with it.

I mean even the smallest things like opening a browser with some html on it or excel makes the laptop slowdown so badly I cant use it. 

 

That just cant be for such a "new" laptop i bought for quite a lot of money.

Im using Windows 10, with a i5-4210M Cpu@2,6GHZ and 8GB RAM.

 

I hope someone can help me with my problem.

Thx in advance.

Sounds like the CPU fan may have become compromised. I would suggest using computer (canned) air to clean out dust / debris from the vents (use short blasts) to improve the situation.

Also - when running you can "feel" for air moving out of the vents to make sure the fan is working.
