Hi

I have G6 2005-AX. Fan is always running with full speed even when Iam simply browsing the internet. Have checked the core temperature using HWMonitor and its shows Max/Min temperature as 92/79 degree Celsius. Laptop is out of warranty. Iam running Windows 8.1 64 bit OS. 

 

When I keep my hand near air vent-let the air isn't hot ! What can be the problem? How shall I proceed to rectify this problem. 

 

Regards

Manmeet

Have you tried blowing out the vents with canned air?  If you haven't, you should.

If blowing out dust doesnt cure this...

 

I have seen similar problems with laptops when you have a heatpipe the cracked and leaked (evaporated) out the heat exchanging liquid, as well as when the bond between heatsink and the processor drys up and the thermal bold is lost to transfer the heat away from the processor. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_pipe

 

First step I'd do is replace the bond with thermal compound such as arctic silver, just 1 small drop is enough to make the bond between heatsink and processor as well as GPU and anything else that this heatpipe assembly cools. You will want to clean off the old thermal compound first so that you have a good thermal bond between surfaces. Heat should be drawn away from the processor and GPU or else the heat pipe is junk and needs to be replaced.

Let's try the canned air first since it is much simpler.  Replacing the thermal compound and/or the heat pipe entails a lot of disassembly.  :thumbup2:
