I've just contacted the manufacturing company. They'd say that it may have been the fan problem; too much dust collected. Another problem I've figured out is that I often place my laptop on my bed, which can cause the laptop to heat up faster. I'm afraid that the conflict matter is not the cause of it.
Am just figuring out how to open the laptop case. Otherwise, I'll ask the support personnel to do it.
Brand: Lenovo T60
OS: Windows XP SP2
I had been using my laptop for slightly more than a year now. However, I've been facing a major problem.
Quite recently, I've found that my laptop had been heating up quite a lot, especially when I start up programs after it completely load. The temperature of the laptop rises so high such that, when I feel the bottom of it, I have to remove my hand immediately to avoid scalding.
I suspect that it may be due to complications, partly due to the programs that I've installed together with my mainframe security, Norton 360. Please comment on what I should do or remove.
Here are some of the programs I've installed other than Norton 360.
Ad-Aware 2007 Personal
Advanced WindowsCare Personal
(you may think I'm crazy, but I'm looking to removing some of them)
Opera and Firefox (rarely use IE6)
I even merge several HOSTS files with the normal Windows one.
Is it that one of the programs above are conflicting with one another, or is it that my laptop's internal fan is malfunctioning?
NOTE: I've already viewed the Task Manager's processes tab, but so far none has been the real resource hog.
