Hi there
I just bought a Toshiba Satellite M50 and it is a great machine except for one thing that irritates me. The area below the keyboard has quite a bit of heating after a bit of usage.(all around the touchpad area) Im not doing extreme stuff on this comp. Im just using it for email, web browsing and word docs etc. Even when I just do web browsing after a while, the heating occurs. Is this normal for Toshiba notebooks? Is there anything that I can do to cool it down? I heard of cooling pads but is there a program or anything out there that will help control the heat? Is this normal with all Centrino notebooks?
Any help or comments would be great!
Thank you

My old Toshiba Satellite Pro 480CDT throws off a ton of heat. It's the quietest laptop I have ever seen- makes no noise that I can hear. But it's hot.

Are the fans running? Maybe you could find a setting in BIOS to keep the fan on all the time.

The fan is running occasionaly. Some people have suggested undervolting the comp. How do I go into BIOS and change the setttings for the fan?

There's a key you can hold down right after turning it on. It's different from one manufacturer to another, so you'd have to look in the manual.
