Hello.
I own an Alienware laptop. It's been running normally for nearly 2 years.
But when I was playing The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth today, it all of a sudden went full throttle and didn't want to stop even after I exited the game.
So I closed my computer and opened it up, cleaned the fans and exhausts.
Then I opened it back up and it sounded normal. Until I opened Google Chrome, and it went full throttle.
I checked the temperatures and the GPU was some 42-44 Celcius.

What could be wrong?

I downloaded HWINFO, took control of the fan and turned it down to 2900 RPM. Then I let the system take the control back and now it runs normally.

Its probably programs running in the background.

Check task manager to ensure nothing unwanted is running.

Also run a malwarebytes scan , CCleaner and a defrag to make sure.
