Laptop Getting Really Hot

Postby Ronny49 on Tue Jul 21, 2009 11:39 pm

Hello, I have a Toshiba E105-S1402 laptop which is an exclusive Best Buy computer.

I have MINT 7 XFCE installed on it right now and I have noticed that this laptop is
running three times hotter than it does while running Vista.

What is the reason for this? I don't feel comfortable continuing to run Mint on my
laptop as I know heat is the evil to all electrical components.

Is there a way to get it to run cooler? Of course without having to stick a fan on it or
even a cooling plate. Don't want to do that. I don't have to while running Vista.

Any suggestions will be appreciated! :?

Is the laptop fan working when it is this hot? Are you running an errant process or is the CPU running at 100% (check the system monitor)?

The fan is flying high! (on high speed most of the time)

I did not check the system monitor as I am fairly new to all of this (didn't think of that).

Thx
