X240 high usage

I just got a 2nd hand X240 in a good condition. The problem is that even with the smallest of tasks, my fan spins up and the estimated battery life drops immediately. Just surfing the internet, nothing heavy, download a file, and ffffff the fan starts, the vent is spewing heat and the battery life drops to 90 mins.


I've never seen any of this behaviour on any of my laptops. Anyone a suggestion?


I have a clean install of Windows 10, browse with Edge, and fairly conservative power settings that I always use on my laptops. (most settings on power saving, cpu between 5-100%)
