My Ideapad Z500 heats up a great deal

I acquired my ideapad this year it to generate a lot of heat even when undertaking simple tasks. I can barely use it on my lap. Not sure how I can resolve that.

Re: My Ideapad Z500 heats up a great deal

hi Lekudxi,


Welcome to the Forums.


Using softwares like HWMonitor or CoreTemp, can you post a screenshot of the temperature readings?


If the energy settings of the machine is set to High Performance, getting temps. between 40-55°C on a 20-25°C room temperature when web surfing is normal
