Lenovo Flex 3 14 hdd overheating.

My lenovo flex 3 14 is heating up in the hdd area. It gets so hot that it becomes impossible to use the keyboard for typing. I checked the ventilations and everything was fine. The fan worked fine. I used speccy to check the temperatures.Temperatures were near 60 degrees C under normal load.


What might be the problem? Will replacing the hdd with a ssd solve this heating issue.?

please help...

Re: Lenovo Flex 3 14 hdd overheating.

Under load, it is common for a system component to reach 60 degrees C, but it is uncommon for the exterior to be so hot that you can't touch it. Try cleaning the internals with compressed air so the fans will have an easier time spinning.
