Device not updated to latest version of Windows
Go to the settings on your device and go to the tab “Updates & Security.” Here you can see if you are currently running on the latest Windows version. If you are not on the latest version, try updating. This will check for any essential video drivers on your laptop, however they may not be the latest, so if issues persist, move onto the next step.
Video card drivers not up-to-date
To ensure that your device has the latest video card drivers, install this Intel Driver & Support Assistant tool that will evaluate your current driver version and update them to any current versions available.
Laptop is frequently hot to the touch with fans running at maximum speeds
Surface constricting airflow
If your device is on a soft surface, such as on a blanket or a pillow, try moving to a solid surface, like a table or desk. Soft surfaces can sometimes lead to hot air being trapped in and around the device and cause insufficient cooling.
Too many programs being run at once
If you have multiple programs being open at once and your device feels very warm, right-click the task bar and select and open the Task Manager. Check and see if your CPU utilization exceeds 90% then try closing all running programs and shut down your device. Turn the laptop back on and if it doesn’t seem to be overheating anymore and the CPU utilization has lowered, then no further treatment should be necessary.
Vents being clogged with dust
After shutting down your laptop, look or feel around your device to find what seem like air vents. Using a flashlight, look inside the vents to see if there is any dust or debris inside the vents or on the fans. If there is, then with a can of compressed air, aim the nozzle into the vents and give them a few short sprays. Be careful not to spray directly at the fans as this could cause them to spin too quickly and cause damage. This should get most, if not all, of the dust dislodged from your vents and should help your device cool down properly.
