Back of laptop very hot and bettery life short

Hi. My laptop his getting very hot. Its a PCG 5KFP model. Previously, the only way it worked was with the bottom (back, cooling units) panel removed and raised up for air circulation. I have had the cooling units checked and now it does work normally when plugged in. The problem is the battery runs out within 2 hours, even on power saver mode, and the battery and cooling units get very hot! Is the first step into finding a solution replacing the battery?

You should service your fans and you need to replace the thermal compound on your cpu. but remember that some laptops with Qcore chips gets were hot and the only thing you can do is to get extra fans. like thy said a cooling pad that you can put your laptop on will make a big difference.

Send it for servicing. The liquid may have seeped into the motherboard and spoilt something.

If you still want to try, but it near a warm, not hot heat source. It may speed up the evaporating of the persisting liquid in the laptop.

This could be a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

If none of this solves the problem, or is not the case, then you might have a bad motherboard.
