Lap top gets so hot it burns my skin

\015 The lap top has gotten so hot it had burned my legs. The system continues to over heat and shut down. The fan runs all the time.\015

Answers :

As for the overheating cause, I can only say if you've ever added on hardware to it maybe the current fan is inadequate for the job. As a solution I would see about getting an upgraded, fan. Or buy a cooling stand, they plug into a USB and your laptop sits on top of it. Hope this helps.
