Why is the laptop hot?

If your laptop is getting too hot while working, there is a possibility that the fan is not working properly due to the dust in the cooling fan. This could be the main reason why your laptop gets hot.

Along with this, if you are not using the laptop’s original charger while charging the laptop, that can also be a sufficient reason for the laptop to heat up. Along with this, there are some other reasons due to which your laptop may be heating up.

Cause of cooling system not working properly

If the intake grill or exhaust port of your laptop is blocked due to dust or the fan is not running properly, your laptop may overheat. In addition, the laptop may not be cooling properly due to bad thermal paste.

A thermal pad or thermal paste connects your CPU or GPU to a metal heat sink, which is connected to a fan and helps cool the device. It helps to reduce the temperature of CPU and GPU.

If your laptop heats up quickly while charging, unplug it immediately. If so, even after removing the battery from the laptop, the device heats up less.

Place the laptop on a flat and solid surface
