I also experienced that every time I’m using my sister’s laptop, it heats up fast. It’s hard to play any games while charging it. It just shuts down automatically. But I have figured out how to avoid these incidents when using it.

If you are using the laptop in bed, I mean the laptop is lying on the bed, be sure that the cooling fan underneath it or on the side is not blocked by the bed sheet or any clothing and the hot air it ejects can circulate properly.

Because if the hot air that is coming out from the laptop’s exhaust fan is blocked by something, the hot air will just stay on that area and will generate more heat to the laptop.

It’s much better to place the laptop on a flat surface so the air underneath can circulate properly which can then give the computer proper ventilation.

Before using your laptop, be sure that it is fully charged. The computer heats up fast because its battery is charging. It is common for a battery to heat up when it is being charged like when you are charging your cell phone, you will notice that its battery is hot.

Laptops should be able to work and maintain normal temperature even for extended uses. If they can’t then there must be a problem with the computer’s cooling system which includes the heat sink and fan assembly.

It may also need to have new thermal paste placed between the processor and the heat sink. Also make sure that the computer’s air vents are not blocked or clogged since this will impede the flow of hot air going out which traps the air consequently raising the temperature of the system and overheating it eventually.

You should contact Compaq to be able to have warranty claims in case it is a hardware problem.
