My laptop runs fine when using battery and plugged in while normal use. But whenever I try to load some heavy software like android studio or install a game or run a game. The temperature shoots up to 100 degree. When i unplug the charger it goes back to normal like 70 degree and goes up only when it is plugged in. The adapter is original one and tried using another one too but got no change. One thing more the fan runs alot faster that time and when i touch my laptop it isn't as hot as it should be for 100 degrees but pretty normal. Should I be worried or just get on with it.

  • Have you cleaned the fan and heatsink radiator lately? Is the fan running on high at 100? – Moab Apr 10 at 11:04
  • @Moab The fan and heatsink are already cleaned. Fan runs too fast on 100 degrees if that what you asking – Abdullah Durrani Apr 10 at 11:07
  • make sure the laptop is on a hard surface (table, desk, etc) and not on a bed, couch. If the battery is removable, try removing it and leaving it plugged in while high usage. Battery charging might increase heat. If this continue, invest in a chill mat. – GeekyDaddy Apr 10 at 13:21
  • If you are running Windows check the energy performance settings for the plugged-in state. "Balanced" energy saver plan should be selected. – Robert Apr 10 at 13:24
  • “Fan runs too fast on 100 degrees if that what you asking” - Why do you say that? At 100 Degrees I would expect the heatsink fan to run at 100% until temperatures were back to normal. At 100 degrees that’s an indication your processor is being thermally throttled and is nearing its maximum thermal temperatures before outright shutting down to protect itself from damage – Ramhound Apr 10 at 13:53
