Laptop heat issue. Left side of KB getting TOO HOT!

 Share

Hi, I m using lenovo y500 laptop with 250 gb samsung ssd and the left side of the keyboard is getting hot very much. There is a vent exactly on the left side and the above where I keep my hand to type is very hot. I can't even keep my hand there to type lol.

 

Here is the screenshot of the temperatures: https://imgur.com/a/SAP4ArX

Any advice?

69°c isn't very hot for a cpu, the can handle 90 without problems. That you keyboard is getting uncomfortably hot is just a bad design

not a whole lot you can do. Sadly this is thermal design restrictions in laptops and you are feeling the heat from either the CPU or GPU under that spot.

So my temperatures are normal and good right?


Now the middle part of the keyboard is also getting hot. What is the solution for this? An external keyboard?

A quick check at reviews confirms that the laptop's case can get as hot as 50C. It is, what it is.

Yes, it's an option.

69c is perfectly fine for a laptop under a normal load. Only way to get around this would be to start using external peripherals.

Also I want to say that when I am typing in ms word or even here in the forum, I am getting a bit lag and a late response to the alphabets getting typed. Can heating be the cause of this?
