'''CAUTION:''' Placing the computer on a cloth surface such as your lap, a bed, or a couch cushion, can restrict or completely block the airflow. Prolonged air restriction causes overheating and potential damage.
'''CAUTION:''' '''DO NOT''' continue to use the computer when a fan is not working correctly. Overtime, exposure to consistently high temperatures can damage other important internal components.
