Nick, try this

I keep my laptop on a cooling rack that I found for about $5 in the baking section of the local Wal-Mart. Effectively what it accomplishes is to raise the laptop about an inch off the table surface. That promotes better air circulation.

A cooling rack is simply a wire rack that you put cookies on to cool after baking.

Targus has a unit available that blows cool air up the fan vents. Same principle, my solution is cheaper.

The Sony Vaio had issues with cooling several years back. To my mind, they all have cooling issues- some more extreme than others.

Good luck!

a few tricks to avoid heating

by L.grange In reply to Nick, try this

A friend of mine had succh problems also, he figured out with the time some tricks to avoid the machine to roast his knees

- defragement your hard drive, the more the hard drive has to seek the more heat it generates
- remove optical media from drives: if it spins it generates heat becasue of the engine
- turn off unneeded process because cpu usage = heat
- use a cooling baord thing as mentionned before or put your laptop in a way air can go through (he used to "raise" it with lego bricks.

hope it will help!

Looks like you're computing in bed

by DelbertPGH In reply to Heating Again!!

If your laptop is often sitting on a pillow or blanket, or other scrunchy surface, you can block the air flow. Make sure your ducts are onobstructed.

I was using my laptop on my lap. It was summer. I ended up with what looked like a serious sunburn on my legs
