    My laptop is getting heated pretty fast

    Hi

    My laptop (Dell precision M90) is getting heated pretty fast now a day (within the first 10 / 20 minutes).

    Wondering what is the reason, and how to solve it! Also, worry to damage it, while trying to work on this, because of this.

    Any insight?
    Cheers.

    I think nothing is wrong, every laptop get heated because, there is hot air coming out from under the laptop and beside it, dont ever leave your laptop on and leave it on a leather lounge because nothing can get through leather, and your laptop will over heat and will get ruined.

    Get a can of compressed air and clean out all the vents.
    As well any nook-n-crannies.
    Logic without the fatal effects.

    Thanks Charlene, yep, putting this (or the battery charger) on leather surfaces does increase the heating. And thanks Logic_Earth, I'll.

    By the way, have a look very frequently at the processes running... A virus might make your CPU run for nothing so does your fan...

    I think it's normal, laptops get really hot because there's not much area to breathe.
