Answers :

There are several models of this notebook depending on the processor. Some only have one fan, otehrshave two. When operating the fan should start running. I have the higher spec R3000 and my fans start soon after the machine is turned on and sometimes throttle down if I have no activity. Upon starting to use it, they soon start again. Considerable hot air will come out the right back and side.

\015\012DO NOT block the air intake(s) on the bottom of the unit !!! You can burn up the processor.
The fan should run continuously. It speeds up as the processor, (And Graphics Processing Unit. GPU), becomes hotter.
[The processor heats up as more tasks are asked of it]

I would get this looked at right away! When a processor becomes too hot, it shuts off. This is a Fail-Safe built in option, to keep the processor from burning up.
