Windows 7: Laptop running hot and slow performance

Laptop running hot and slow performance

Hi

The fan in my laptop hasn't been working for some time and the laptop is running hot. When I checked the temperature of the CPU it shows an average of 80 degrees C when running a few tasks. Task manager shows the CPU running at 100% when I'm only running Firefox and 5 download tasks on IDM. I suppose the slow performance is related to the heat issue but I'm not sure if there has been a permanent damage to the motherboard or CPU.

Besides fixing the fan, is there a need to replace the motherboard+CPU as well?

Only way to tell is to change the fan and benchmark your performance.

Running your machine at 80degrees is not advisable...

If you keep running it that hot then you will burn out the board and possibly other components (hdds don't like it too hot) Get the fan fixed ASAP and do what I did, get a cooling pad. They really do keep the temp down
