I usually use my G73SW with external 21 inch monitor connected via HDMI and notebook monitor turned off.

GPU temperature hovers around 35-40 degrees idle. When playing games the temperature goes to 50-60 degrees.

When I use both 21` monitor and notebook monitor, the GPU temperature is around 55-60 degrees idle and only shows 3% GPU usage in process monitor.
(windows background on both monitors and no programs active).

It stays the same even when I play a game.


Is this normal?
Why is it overheating so much when I have no programs active on notebook monitor?

Is there a way to fix this?
