Default It burnsssssssss.......

I can't stay too long with my laptop on using 100% of the CPU as it burns my leg. My shorts will literally get wet from the heat. Is there any cheap coolers I can use? Something light.

there are a lot of cheap coolers if you look at newegg. Also.. you could just use something like a tray. This should improve the airflow in the laptop as well as put something between your legs and the laptop.

I've tried. It does help the airflow, but it still heats up my room lol.

Have you dusted the laptop? Get a can of compressed air and blow that sucker.

You should check and see if all fans are properly working.

If these two don't reduce the heat, I don't see how else you could *reduce* the heat so your room won't heat up (lol). The usb fan trays and coolers will do the best job for you.

Yeah, I got it dusted and stuff...it is still pretty warm but I'm guessing it's because there's no airflow in my room. One because the windows were closed, I opened them now, and 2 the air conditioner was being covered by clothes. Still little hot though.

Join the Hot Club. My room sees temps of 26-28*C all day, even if I've got my windows open and AC blasting. The best I've been able to get is 23*C.
