Solid State Hard Drive way too hot
Posted on 2010-11-17
Just wanted to make sure there isnt a setting or something that needs to be changed.
I have an HP Pavilion dv4-1220us notebook, and now a 128gb ADATA SSD hard drive.
SSD drive has been in laptop for about a week now and I keep noticing the actual drive gets very very hot. Of course SSD can stand the heat, but I thought SSD was supposed to get less hot than a regular drive.
Right now i have each corner of laptop ontop of 3 inch high supports, and the HD cover is off, and if i touch SSD drive it is very very hot.
Is this normal? Are there any BIOS settings that should be adjusted due to an SSD drive?
