Hi I'm having some issues with my laptop, every-time I go to play a game the motherboard gets really hot like around 80-85 degrees Celsius, even flash games cause it to hit that temperature, whats wrong with my system?

 

Edit: I'm running a dell insprion 1545 with a Intel Pentium T4400 @ 2.20GHz   
Penryn 45nm Technology CPU and two

Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.1) (Dell)

The motherboard is a Dell Inc. 0G848F (Microprocessor)

How old is this system?

Dell laptops have issues with heating, they tend to get absurdly hot with minimal amounts of dust in the system (some have even caught fire in the past)

 

Chances are you just need a good cleaning.

Hi GLaDOS,
 

I suggest you to clean the air vents with a can of compressed air to remove dust accumalated which can block air flow. You may also update the video drivers and BIOS to the latest version. The files can be download from the following link:

Thanks and Regards,
