Hi, My laptops were heating up ~ I had to open them up and remove a clump of dust and fibers about the size of your little finger nail  ```` No more heating up ```

 

Good luck

 

Richard

If you look ~ there should be a tear down of your computer on the net ~ that will make it easy to remove the mouse ~ that will allow your fan to cool the laptop ```

can you post your speccy results online.   may just be your processor is over taxed.  I had the same issue because my laptop was to old and we a single core processor.  and all the newer audio software is optimized for multi core systems.

 

 

you could also try the aid of a laptop cooling pad.

Speccy does not always work correctly.

 

Case in point.  I have a HP Pavilion lap top that my wife uses for games.

When it is turned on from a cold night, Speccy tells me the CPU is over 250F!!!

When I use CoreTemp, it returns only 109F after a few hours being on!

This is not the first time that Speccy has given me bad data. 

They choose to ignore my comments.

 

Food for thought.

Cheers

Here's a few thoughts on overheating:
2010ish is 8 years old. This was the era, give or take, where "they" just started to figure out how to keep a laptop cool. Early laptops burnt up a lot. A single core processor with a 1.5 to 2.5GHz processor for instance can hardly, or nominally keep up with high powered software and your CPU will max out and heat up in shorter periods of time. Check out VirtualDJ's "Minimum system requirements" and "Recommended system requirements"

Optimizations:
>Unplug the laptop from the wall and take the battery out.

  Hold the power on key as if starting up but it won't of course.

  Hold down for at least 15 seconds to discharge the system.
>Blow all dust out of the system. Sometimes the fans are embedded with fibers.
  Your laptop is probably old enough to have a removable bottom or flaps so you can blow it out.

   Hold the fans in place with a piece of slim plastic or similar from rotating too fast when you blow it out.
>2010ish is probably Vista or Seven. Turn all the bells and whistles off:
  Start menu > right click 'Computer' > Properties > Advanced system settings > Performance > Settings... >

  tick: 'Adjust for best performance'.
>Leave the bottom or flaps off and keep it on a cooler pad. Cooler Master pads are good.

>Don't let the ambient room temp be too hot.
>Get a second and third doctor's opinion besides speccy: CoreTemp, CrystalDiskInfo portable.

  CrystalDiskInfo will tell you about the health of your hard drive as well as temp, too much heat will destroy it.

  CrystalDiskInfo's portable standalone does not come with extras you may not want.
>Get a CPU monitor to see when and if it is maxing out.

  I like ProcessHacker which might be overkill but it's great with a CPU monitor in the system tray,

  not to mention a multitude of great features.
>Unplug the laptop from the wall when shutdown. This will save battery life
  Hope this helps

Laptops do heat up as the room they have is not enough to provide space for cool down. So simply lifting off your laptop a bit from the surface would allow air to circumvent and you can even use a cooling fan that will solve most of your problem.
