I have had this laptop since April of 2017 and about a month ago the internal battery swelled so bad it popped open the case. It was running a little warm prior to this but was told thats normal for this laptop. I removed the unstable battery and checked function with just plugging it in. Worked fine until 2 weeks afterwards and it started overheating when I played my fav game, World of Warships. I since have applied thermal paste and replaced the internal battery. It ran the game but still overheats after about 5 mins. I have it set to balanced with process power mgmt with max processor state at 95%. Cooling is toggled on for both battery and being plugged in. So, what can I do next? What is the most recent version of Dragon Center, where can I download a safe copy and will it help? Bios seems updated but is there a way to use it to fix overheating? Also this laptop has cooler boost 3 but there is no key to activate it, is there a key combination? I unfortunately dont have the disc anymore, it was lost in a move. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
