MY HUSBAND AND I EACH HAVE THE SAME MODEL LAPTOP, MINE GETS HOT WHILE IN USE AND HIS DOESNT, WHY? and my fan constantly runs. is it my battery or do i need to do something


Answers :

It s a known problem on all laptops but, you can by a laptop cooler which lets your laptop sit on top if it and one or up to three fans cool it from below. they are very effective quiet and cheap. Amazon and play.com sell them. Also there is a utility called fangui8. This is a sofyware solution that works by taking control of the fans for you, but not all laptops can use it, try it and see its free.....do a google search for fangui.
Do you have it set for high performance in the control panel, go to start, control panel, then to "performance information and tools" you can adjust power settings, performance setting. If that doesn't work you might try looking into the set-up part of the CMOS. iIf you need help with it let me know, If your not comfortable with working with CMOS then get assistance before to go forward with that. Hope this helps. Please feel out the survey for thats what keeps us here for you.
