There is nothing wrong with it. That is one of the reasons they are now professionally called "Portables" and not "Laptops", they get hot.
All manufacturers sell cooling hardware, some docking stations already have carriage fans. Many can be found online as well with the proper search.

This sounds like the dreaded "ID: 10T" Dell laptop battery error. Call Dell Tech support and tell them the error code above and ask to get a replacement battery.

Get rid of the Dell, we have had at least 11 of those pieces of shit go down at work this year and for some reason they keep buying them.

The most inefficient thing you can do with electricity is turn it into heat...always buy the most efficient equipment you can find...it's worth the extra money long term...or maybe you shouldn't plug it in to the dryer socket...
Poor people do poor people things, and rich people do rich people things.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

when you rob Paul to give to Peter ... ... ... you will always get Peters support!

I feel that Ed (TV) is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is now a moral good in this country. It's its own virtue.

My dell used to get so hot it once burned a pillow (It made my legs so hot I stuck a pillow under while I was working), left a huge brown square and dark circle once i noticed the odd smell.. The laptop was 3 weeks old. I called to complain but the company Dell told me it is well known the computers get way to hot and maybe I should buy a new one. Apparently warranty doesn't cover known bugs such as over heating

I bought a mac and that was the end of it lol

NOT starting a mac vs pc debate.

You need to get to the inside of where the air vents from by the fan - you will find it clogged with a matt of hair like stuff that has accumulated and is blocking the airflow.

It must be the mini-plutonium reactor pulling the control rods too far out of the computer's reactor core, releasing too many high energy neutrons.

OP...everything everyone's said regarding laptops/heat is correct.

But, you've got your puter and you're stuck with it.

CHEAP WORK-AROUND:

Go to your local wally-world or hardware, buy a tiny little cooling fan.

Elevate the laptop on milk top caps at the 4 corners.

Position the small cheap fan blowing downwards so the air circulates beneath/around the laptop.

Secure the fan to the table with c-clamps or whatever works.

This will help cool the laptop significantly and prolong the time your able to cruise.
