    I updated all of my drivers to the newest version recently, but I'm still having that same heat issue.

    are the Graphics and Sound Drivers for W10 and compatible with your PC? This is a MUST.

    You could try the "Clean Boot" option (Run>msconfig>Diagnostic Startup) and see if the problem persists.

    EDIT: You could also take a look in "Task Manager" (Ctrl+Alt+Del) and try to figure out what is comsuming Processor .

    I just took apart my laptop, and no dust, so thats a no for Dust, but I believe my drivers are compatible with windows 10 and I want to know more about this "Clean Boot" option.
    I'm running out of options before I decide to reset my computer, or go back to 8.1.

    EDIT: This may be a dumb question, but how do I take a screenshot of my task manager?

    About the "Clean Boot": Right Click on Start Icon, then choose "Run" and Type "msconfig.exe". Then it will open a Window and there on the "General Tab" click on "Diagnostic Startup" and then click "Apply". The computer should then reboot.

    About screenshot: On the Keyboard there is a "Print" button. Press it, then open "Paint" and "Paste from Clipboard". Save the file as JPG.

    I clean booted my computer the fan is still running pretty high and now the sound and internet doesn't work( I use Ethernet ) is that supposed to happen?

    Edit:disregard that, I think the computer is fixing its self now, going to see what happens.

    "Clean Boot" means that you are running with minimal Drivers Installed. It can happen that somethings do not work.
    As it is said is a "Diagnotic Mode" for testing purposes only.
    It is not fixing anything.
    Work like that for a while and watch if the problem is gone.
    If so, you have a Driver/Software problem and you need to figure out which one the culprit.
    After testing, you will need to switch back to "Normal Boot".

    Oh OK, didn't know that it still had the same issue, the fan is running high and heat is still an issue, I will go back to normal boot up and send you a picture of my task manager.

    Do not be so quick. Keep in mind that CPU is quite hot and it will take some time to get cold again. A little pacience is necessary.

    EDIT: with that patience thing in mind, I will let my laptop sleep for an hour, and post a new picture of the task manager at that time, to see if there is any difference.

    Looking at the shot of your Task Manager I see a problem.
    I would remove Driver Genius, them run a scan with Malwarebytes if you have it.
    If you don't have it installed download it from here, opt out of the 30 day trial.
    Malwarebytes | Thank you for downloading Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
