At about 2:40 I put my dell precision m90 laptop in the case and it was fairly cool. I am not sure or not if i turned it off before I put in the case but I think I just pressed log off. It is now 7:22 and my laptop is hot. Not just one spot but the whole laptop. I tried to turn it back on but as soon as I pressed the power button it lighted the battery power led and as soon as i take my finger off the power it goes out. Can anyone help?

It has been "working" while in its case......i assume it has had no ventilation while in the case.......so it has overheated.


Take it out of the case, and let it sit somewhere with plenty of ventilation for half an hour.

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy

Your battery is likely dead as well. Let it cool off, plug it in and try to power it on. I always suggest completely shutting down a computer and verifying it turned off before putting it in a case.

If I am helping you with a problem and I have not responded within 48 hours please send me a PM.
