Hello IndianBubble,

 

Not sure how old the notebook is but where any form of overheating is concerned a clean out with canned compressed air is a good starting point, to help with this see Reducing heat inside the PC to prevent overheating

 

Download then run Speccy (free) and post the resultant url for us, details here,  this will provide us with information about your computer hardware + any software that you have installed that may explain the present issue/s.

Hi,

 

Please accept my sincere apologies for not reverting. I have been travelling hence wasn't able to do much on the issue. I will be back next week (18 Apr'15) and would revert. Would request if the topic can be left open till then.

 

I appreciate all the help that is provided by you all.

 

Thanks.

Hi,

 

Please close this topic as I have been able to clean the fan and the openings and it is much better now.

 

Thanks.
