Hello guys

It's been a month or so that the cooling system of my laptop is almost always on and sometime it become very noisy,what can I do about it?

Is there a way to clean it or is it because of some application?

Yes, easiest way to clean it is to get a can of compressed air and blow it into the fans to break free and expel all of the collected dust.

thanks .. but is it normal that the left cooling system it's way more hot then the right one??

That's not uncommon. I'm not sure if you're referring to the vent or the laptop itself feeling hot but due to the location of components the temperature won't be even.

I'm talking about the vent,the left side it's always way more hot then the right one . .is it normal to have the cpu almost all the time up to 96 C???and I'm not even turning on the turbo mode or playing games,just surfing . .

No, 96C is not normal for idle. Either that reading is false or something is wrong. Is this the temperature after cleaning?

Isn't the CPU supposed to throttle when it reaches 70C?

I didn't clean it yet because I don't know how to do it :-)

in any case i noticed that the cpu is very hot when both the turbo mode and the intel turbo are on,but when they're both off it looks normal,around 70 . . .can the turbo mode be the problem?

You mean 70c ideling? That's hot!

Use compressed air or canned air like Dust-Off and blow a bunch of short bursts into the vents and into the air intakes, too.
