Thermal throttling

2020-05-18, 8:09 AM

Hi i am facing a serious problem with my thinkpad P1 gen2. Since I started using it, whenever I use my laptop while charging it gets so heat up that it is impossible to touch its back side ,lower part. But when I put it sleep while charging or do not charge then it is normal. the problem is only when I charge. The screenshot also shows it.

 Please help me to solve the issue. should I visit any authentic repair shop? I am currently living in Italy, where can I find it? Thank you

This could be related to something similar, which has been described before here:

That said, you should have an update available for your BIOS... but don't get your hopes up. Still convinced that some hard-coded temperature thresholds and associated fan-spin are off in current version.
