The left side of my Envy dv6 notebook (nearest the heatsink) has become phenomenally hot as of late. Using CPU-z or something like Speccy, I'm tending to get temperatures of around ~60 - 65 celsius for the i7 CPU/Mobo, ~55 for the GPU and ~38 for the hard drive. This is just sitting idle!
Engaging in something like moderate gaming (League of Legends, Guild Wars 2) or doing video rendering in Sony Vegas causes the fan to blare very loudly and temperatures to reach upwards of 80+ celsius. This eventually throttles performance and makes the notebook extremely uncomfortable to use. At this point I typically shut the system down to prevent any potential hardware damage.
This notebook is still under its first year of warranty, are there any possible steps to take to have it serviced by someone qualified?
