Re: [PLUG] very large laptop

And just to cover the sanity checking, you blew all the dust out with compressed air, made sure the fan actually spins & air actually flows, and all that, right? Just checking...

I saw what Eric wrote about the inaccessibility of the fan, but a partial teardown for a good cleaning and re-seating of whatever you can...might help?

Have you considered an inexpensive cooling pad to sit it on?  Like
a thick mouse pad, but big enough for the entire laptop to sit on.
Blows air up at the bottom of the laptop.  Worked wonders for an
old 17-inch HP laptop my wife had years ago.  The laptop was
built cheap, I think, with no attention to heat.  Had a non-laptop
CPU or something even.  Always overheated.  The pad solved it.
Might still be lying around here somewhere, though I suspect its
long gone.  See:
