T400s heat at the bottom of the display frame

recently, i noticed that the center bottom of the display frame is very warm, while the other parts are quite cool.

 

is this related to the driver of the graphic card? I recently installed tha driver provided by Lenovo (ver. 8.15.10.1855). before this, the installed driver was with higher version number, which is updated by Windows Update itself. And I do not think I have such heat problem before.

 

other details: i am using win 7, always wireless connection, full brightness of the display

 

does any other T400s users encouter similar problems?

Re: T400s heat at the bottom of the display frame

Hello,

 

do you have an LED or CCFL display?

 

It´s normal that your display gets warm, if it´s always running at full power  Especially the CCFL´s do so.

My suggestion, there´s no need to worry about.Smiley Happy

Re: T400s heat at the bottom of the display frame

Thanks for clarification.

 

Although it´s an LED, it need some power and gets warm, especially if you will fire it up to 100% brightness.

 

IMHO, if it gets not really hot at the bottom of the screen, I wouldn´t worry about.
