Thought I would ask about a few issues I had with a laptop I am working with.
This notebook is always hot to the touch around the left palm rest. Just warm I guess, not blazing hot. CPU is located under the keyboard towards the top on the left side.
The CPU is a Intel Core i3 dual core CPU with hyper threading, 2.4 GHz and speedstep.
I have a program that monitors the CPU temp. It runs around 126F when idle. If I open over 4 tabs in Google Chrome then run a few other programs like iTunes and Windows Explorer the temp goes to as high as 180F.
Should I worry?
What can I do? I've already blown out the machine with compressed air.
The Notebook is a HP G72 B60US.
