    The fan is probably burned out. The first thing I would do is restore it. See if it's a software issue.

    edit: what I mean is, mine doesn't run hot at all and my fan seems to come on regularly.

    how do you restore it

    edit: ok, i fugured it out. but i noticed that the fan came on in recovery, so that is telling me that it not burned out. i have not been on it long enough it get it out yet. so, i dont know if it fixed, just happy its not burnt out.

    So then however hot it is actually getting is likely still below the threshold for turning on the fan. Computers can actually handle some pretty high temps, so it just being warm to the touch isn't really overheating. My old Dell Inspiron 600m used to actually burn my lap after long enough, although that's old technology. I also have an HP tx2z, which only seems to actually get hot while in tablet mode.

    No I have had his problem too, its a bug im sure. It has come on most of the time to cool off but once I noticed that it got quiet warm without a running fan.

    Just dont run it on a bed or on your lap where it holds the heat for now, I am just a bed person I am always on my bed. Video games, computer, eat, sleep.. well I use the bathroom so I guess not everything but thats a good thing
