Default My Laptop starring in "Half Baked"???

My HP Laptop has been running pretty hot lately.The core temp stays around 34*c,so that doesn't seem bad,but the fan runs pretty high most of the time,and the underside is pretty hot to the touch.

2 days ago,while attached it to a printer,it made a little crackling noise and let out a little volcano puff between the Y and U keys.When it completed printing,I shut it down and removed the battery.That night I put it back together and started it and it ran OK.I'm typing on it now,no further incident.

What could the problem be? Do I need to drug test my computer?

I heartily recommend Root-a-pedia! It's all I use. Never let's you down.

Vacuum under your computer so it can breathe.

34C is fine. How is that hot for a laptop? I understand if your assumption is that it should be lower, but mine at home is well ventilated and it hits 50-60C during average usage which is well within its design specs.
