    I've been having this issue for over a month now, so I decided to ask you guys.

    When I turn my laptop on, it usually takes one minute to get hot, the fan turns on and I can hear it very loud, I've checked the temp it's usually 80°C and 95°C, I guess this is really hot when you have just turned your laptop on right? It gets so hot that I can barely type without 'burning' my fingers (Somehow few keys fell from my keyboard) and my laptop also runs slow while it's hot, I'm running Windows XP I've also tried many Linux distros and Windows 7 and it remains as hot, I was wondering what could I do to cool it down?

    Thanks. :(
