Laptop Overheating

Hey guys, recently my laptop has been overheating, not just around the fan area. Usually, when this happens the fan kicks in and ventilates the entire system, but I haven't seen it do that in a long time. Even when I elevate it, so that the bottom isn't against the table, the laptop is still very hot to the touch.

Is there a way to prevent this from happening? No, it is not overclocked, my CPU is at 20%, tops.

Your internal fan probably went out and needs replacing. Can also buy a notebook cooling pad for $8-11.00:

make sure you blow out the heat sink out also, dust is very bad for a laptop and builds up fast.

I've seen about 20+ cases in Pentium-M notebooks where the CPU heatsink loosened, so the heatsink isn't too hot and the ambient temperature is too low for the fan to kick in. Check the CPU temperature with PC Wizard/CPU-Z/lm-sensors.

Clean out all the dirt, and if you need to, replace the fan. Sometimes the fan can brake or can slow down due to dust etc, which means all the hot air is being produced inside of the Laptop but their is nothing their to cool it down. Thats usually the most common problem anyway.
