Hello Laptop community.

My laptop is one of those laptops that you wish you could just put aside and buy a new one. That aside, is 110°F+ just way to hot for a typical laptop on Google Chrome?

Using Hard Disk Sentinel, I found out that my computer keeps a 111°F temperature at idle and has went up to 129°F as it's highest temperature.

I am nervous if this will affect performance or destroy the laptop quicker. The laptop I have is slim and has barely any air vents. I hope someone can help me!

Sincerely,
Anthony V.

Ok, thanks! Do you think that dropping a laptop from a high height (6 feet) could have something to do with this?

Thank you for the help! Do you know any good diagnostic tools? Right now, I am using Hard Disk Sentinel. I don't know if that is a good well-known application for diagnosing the HDD.
