Ideapad Y510 Heat problem

2011-01-09, 13:34 PM

Hi, i am having a heat problem on my ideapad Y510, i have had it for about two years now. The specs are

 

Intel core 2Duo 2.2Ghz

2GB Ram

Nvidia GeForce 8400M GS

 

I have upgraded to Windows 7, recently the laptop has been getting very hot when using it to run demanding processes, so hot that i cant place it on my lap or rest my left hand on it (the entire left part of the computer gets hot) or i will get burnt after a few minutes. I would like to know what i can do to avoid this.

 

Any help will be appreciated, thanks

First thing, check for dust build up by cpu heatsink,

and clean it out.

 

Unplugged, and with battery out, remove the Large panel on the bottom

to check.

 

Also be sure fan is working.
