The end is at hand for this laptop which I've had for 19 months now. I've often wondered why the area in the lower left hand corner gets so hot it's most uncomfortable to touch but only when the computer is on the internet. Work/play off the net, it cools off fairly quickly and stays cool. I wonder if there might be some ideas that could help others with this problem inasmuch as I'm still trying to understand cut and paste, post to desktop, etc.
I did find a tray in the area as well as the headphone/mike plug-ins. The hottest area seem to be 3-4" from the bottom over to the edge of the touchpad. I'd really like to read all and any suggestions as to what might be causing this, but I'm unable to comply with any downloads, posts, attachments, just don't know how. I realize these would be necessary for a repair but April 8 will make that a waste. I'm just curious as to what's under that spot. And thanks to all who've helped me get as far as I have, inch by inch.
BTW, it's been like this since it was gifted to me.
