Hi,
 all laptops heat up rapidly if u place it on a flat surface...so when u place the laptop, keep a small support( like tv remote, ac remote, folded book) anythin like that, so that there is free ventilation of air beneath the laptop....dis might solve ur problem


good luck

Burning


The motherboard in your laptop is overheating badly if its melting chargers but more importantly its not charging at times as well. Both symptoms relate to a bad motherboard. Try getting it replaced if you can.

AC Adapter melting


It could be a fault with your laptop which is drawing more current than what the AC adapters can supply.
OR
The adapters are under too powered for your laptop.
Check the voltage and current rating requirements of your laptop, this information is printed on a label on the bottom of the laptop.
The adapter should have the same voltage and current rating or same voltage with a higher current rating.

Over heating of laptop


Causes of Laptop Overheating Physical Causes of Laptop Overheating
For a properly designed laptop, the most common cause of overheating is blocked air vents. When dust blocks the fans and air vents designed to cool your laptop, overheating results. (In some cases, blocked vents and poor design are related, as some designs are excessively prone to becoming clogged with dust).
Software Causes of Laptop Overheating
In other cases, laptops overheat because the software designed to protect the laptop – specifically by controlling the operation of cooling fans – does not work properly. In some cases, this is due to problems in the computer’s BIOS, and can be cured by upgrading to the most recent BIOS. In other cases, upgrading or changing the computer’s operating system can cause this software to not function.
If, for example, you have upgraded from Windows ME to Windows XP, the system software designed to operate the fans may no longer work properly. (What’s worse, the laptop manufacturer may refuse to provide support in this instance, on the grounds that you changed the operating system and so are no longer operating the system as it was designed to operate.) In other cases, replacing Windows with Linux has led to this problem if the proper Linux utilities to control laptop cooling were not installed.
Design Causes of Laptop Overheating
In a distressing number of cases, laptop overheating results from poor design by the notebook manufacturers. Some manufacturers cram desktop CPUs into laptop configurations, and do not adequately provide for releasing the heat that these desktop CPUs create. Others simply have failed to provide ventilation and cooling systems appropriate for today’s CPU and video chips, which hold many more transistors than in the past and so generate more heat.
Several class actions have been filed against laptop manufacturers due to overheating laptops, including Toshiba and Dell. Previous class actions have led to settlements under which compensation was awarded to owners of overheating laptops who ran up repair bills trying to get the problem fixed. More class actions related to overheating laptop and notebook computers are reportedly under consideration.check here for more information http://www.fonerbooks.com/lap_fan.htm

Charger overheating and melting the tip, Irregular charging


First, Check for damage (frays, tears, melting, or cracks in/on the insulation) on the power unit from tip to wall socket. If all looks well then I would check the voltage on the power unit by using a voltmeter. If it's within manufacturer printings on the box, then you might have a possible short.

Hope this helps.

It is quite possible that you need to replace the cooling fan. You can get used parts for this machine on Ebay pretty cheap now. I have seen the fan assy go for about $8-20.00. They are a bit of a job to replace. Just take your time.
