X61 Thinkpad 7675-CTO Heat problem

2009-03-21, 17:47 PM

My X61 tends to overheat upper left corner where the fan and heat sink are located.  I haven't noticed any performance issues, but it is too hot for your skin to come into contact with it.  My 2 year old son accidentally touched the corner and let out a pretty good yelp!  Is there a fix for this?  I'm running Windows Vista Business with 4 GB ram (only 3 GB gets used).  Thanks,

what CPU do you have on the X61??? The overheating problem is due to the heatsink/fan assembly couldn't dissipate the heat from the CPU. Do you have warranty?? 


Install the HWmonitor from the web, it would tell you what temperature it is running at, i am guessing probably around 75+ Celsius.
