Question about Toshiba Satellite L640D-ST2N03 Laptop (PSK0QU01T00C)
Two things here: First make sure the fan is working and pushing out air. Look and see how dirty it looks. Is it covered with lint? Are the intake openings which it draws air throught, likely on the bottom of the laptop, are they opened? Make sure you are placing the laptop on a hard flat surface and not on a bed for instance. It needs to get air movement.
2. Open up task manager (CTRL + ALT + DEL keys) and see what is running. Also look to see what processes are running. It will have a long list. Click the tab at the top of the column that tells amount and it will put them in order of most to least (if that is inverted click it a second time and it will be correct). Interest explorer uses a lot. What else is high on that list ? Is it something you are using? Also check to see what programs are 'running in the background'. That means that you aren't using them at the moment but they're still running waiting for you to say you need them now. They will be in the processes menu running...
3. ...then look and see what is in your STARTUP menu. If there's something you don't use frequently you can get rid of it. You don't need it running constantly in the background and can still pull it up when you do need it.
You maybe having a problem with the CPU fan. If it gets feeling really hot shut down the machine so you don't fry the cpu. It may need cleaning. If you think you'll blow it clean yourself be careful. Too often people blow dust/lint further in and clog it up worse when they use canned air etc.
