Hi all

I am looking after my sisters Dell Inspiron 5150 laptop at the moment.  She had a problem where it just would not boot claiming that one of the windows files was missing or corrupt.  I have reinstalled windows and updated allthe firewalls antivirus etc and it seems to be working fine.
The only thing is that the plastic casing at the bottom of the screen gets very hot while the screen is on and cools down in standby.  My sister claims that this didn't happen before the problem with windows and is concerned that the laptop may have been plugged into the mains during an lightening storm and sustained some damage.  All hardware has passed the dell tests and been verified as ok so the internals seem to be ok.

Not being the owner of a laptop I have no idea if it is normal for this area to get so warm can anyone help.  It does get too hot to comfortably touch.

Thanks for any opinions
