Hi guys,

Im pretty new to this. I was playing a game today when the fans started going crazy and the game crashed. Even after the game crashed the fans kept going nuts to the point I had to restart my laptop. I tried to game again but it did this several more times.

I checked my temps and my CPU is 70 degrees while Im not even doing anything. This is bad, right?

What should I do? Ive been reading a lot and Im guessing I need to repaste but Im hesitant to just go ahead and do that because as I said, very new to this.

Thanks for any advice/help.

You can bring the laptop to MSI service for repaste.
You could also check if the BIOS/EC are all up to date.

Alright Ill check that. If theyre up to date its pretty much certain that thermal paste is the issue though?

Not sure, makes the laptop overheat might be caused by the driver, firmware, and environment temperature.
But if doesn't encounter such an issue before, you can bring laptop to MSI for a further check.

If your laptop is still under warranty, I'll suggest that you contact the MSI service center first.
