This is the image of the laptop that I own [HP Pavilion DV4-2126tx].
Towards the left of the laptop is a
RJ-45 socket where I connect the internet cable and close to it is the graphics card, hard drive and the slot for remote control.
For the past couple of days I have observed that the area of the keyboard near the
RJ45 socket and HDD heats up more than usual.
I have the laptop raised about half a centimeter above the desk.
The HDD temp stays at
40C and the CPU at
50C while the aforementioned area heats up. I do not know what is causing the heating but to dissipate the heat, I ejected the remote control and voila, the area cooled down.
How much heating is observed ? More than what is considered lukewarm.
I would like to know what is causing the heating.
Workload while heating is observed: Nominal workload like reading a pdf file. The portion heats up in 15 mins of laptop start
Other observed things: Today, the PC, out of its own accord, turned off
Windows Aero while it was in charging mode. I also observed that when this happened, the power policy had also moved from
Balanced to .. NOTHING. The radio button disappeared. Do I link this to a failing GPU ? (currently it is operating on
Generic PnP Monitor on Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD Is it failing?
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit
