Laptop sometimes runs between 90-95 degrees while surfing the internet. Other times it goes down to 70 degrees, but there's no pattern as to when it heats up. I try to keep it on a laptop tray when its on my lap, but this doesn't seem to help. There was a period of about a week maybe a year ago where I could hear something in the fan, and the laptop was switching off a few times a day due to overheating I presume. This hasn't happened since and I can no longer hear anything in the fan (unless its lodged somewhere). There is a slight smell of burning coming from the left side vent when it hits around 90 degrees.

Just wondering if the temps are normal.
Thanks for any advice
