Hi vubu,

My laptop gets real warm in places too.

Your Dell may have several cooling fans. Make sure that you aren't resting your laptop on your lap :thumbsup: or other surface where those fans are obstructed. Be sure to check to make sure each fan starts when you turn the laptop on - they may only stay on for a second. With newer laptops, those fans may turn on and stay on, or toggle on and off as needed by your computer.

If you have a fan problem, give Dell a call ASAP. Heat can cause components to fail prematurely and may cause your laptop to shutdown.

Good Luck,
Rigel
