Hi, I hope you can help me.

I have a Toshiba Tecra A2 laptop that is getting very hot underneath. The best that I can explain as to exactly where it is getting hot is that is on left hand side (looking at it as if it was open with the screen in front of you) towards the centre of the laptop. I replaced the battery 6 months ago and this also appears to be losing its charge now.

Any ideas as to what I can do.

Many thanks

Paul

One thing you can try is to blow out all the vents with compressed air to make sure they are not choked with dust.

You could always buy one of those little cooling pad things. . .They seem to help.
