    :wtf: is causing it? I've checked the processes and nothing seems to be hogging up the CPU and pushing the computer that hard.. Have it on a well ventilated area. :dunno:

    get a can of compressed air and blow the fans out. That can make a huge difference.

    I guarantee you 5 pounds of dust will blow out of your laptop. In fact, doing this is one of my guilty pleasures. :hsugh:
