I've had my Fujitsu Siemens Amilo EL6800 (celeron 2Ghz, 256mb ram) for just over two years now. At the end of last year the battery packed in (discharges very quickly - it takes under a minute to fully discharge), although the laptop powers up ok through the mains supply.
I have recently noticed that the laptop is getting very hot, specifically around the point where the two fans are located (which sits above the processor, obviously!).
The system temperature rises and is maintained around 65 to 70 degrees celcius - ouch!
I've checked the system temperature using Speedfan, and attempted to check the remainder of the system using Fault Diagnosis (although no sensors can be recognised using the second piece of software). All software and drivers appear to be up-to-date.
Would you have any ideas as to why the system may be overheating? I'm assuming it is related to the battery supply not working properly. More importantly, any suggestions for a fix!?
