Answer to "Why does my computer become extremely hot?"The fan in the laptop could have dust built up on it. To fix this, take the fan out and clean it. You can do this by blowing air on and around the fan to clear off any dust. Another problem could be that the fan is blocked and needs a chance to cool down. Do a hard reset of the device, then lay the laptop in a cool area with the fan facing up so nothing is blocking air from it.
