Ok, the thing is this... my laptop (keyboard area) is really "warm & cosy" to touch under the really fierce airconditioning in the office.
The right side of the laptop has this ventilation which is emitting heat intermittently whenever the hard disk is spinning. The heat level is skin bearable but I find the heat intensity to be unusually high.
I then raised the laptop off my table and I realised the table surface underneath the laptop is really hot and can possibly cook, or half-cook, an egg. The heat seems to radiate from the hard disk compartment or area around it, so unbearably hot for any form of skin contact.
The battery no longer hold charge and the laptop has been powered up directly from the main power supply. Could this be why that causes the heatiness?
Anyone here also experienced the same cosy keyboard, warm ventilation from the right side of the laptop with a table surface hot enough to cook an egg?
