    Well as of late, my computer's keyboard has been overheating. If you touch the 1,2,3,4,q,w,e,r,f1,f2,f3 keys you can notice the heating.

    Is there anything I can do?

    Thanks in advanced.

    The keyboard isn't overheating. It's the internal components of the computer heating up. Nothing really you can do as it is normal. You could increase fan speeds on the computer which might help.

    Ah sorry, I didn't mean the keyboard was literally overheating, I mean the parts under that area were.


    This is what the temperature of my CPU is, not sure if it's normal or not.

    While playing a video game on my computer, it jumps up to about 4000-4500 rpm. I doubt that's normal.

    From what my CPU does I think it runs lower than normal, mine usually runs at 110F, to 150F. If it gets higher than that I usually move it so the fans will work better and I don't think I've ever seen my fan get above 2000rpm. So I'd say your good!
