Re: Laptop running hot, tips?
Just watch out what you are using it on. My laptop (HP Pavilion zd8000) gets EXTREMELY hot when playing games. So i have to play on flat hard surfaces when playing video games, but when browsing the Internet or word processing i can have it on my lap or the carpet.
Couple things i've done, ensure that all your fans do work, ensure they are clean, and you can do what someone already posted - they sell these covers that go on the bottom of your laptop that have multiple big fans to increase air speed and reduce temps.
