    My Razer blade pro 2017 laptop recently started to smell like burning/smoke when playing resource intensive games (warzone, path of exile). Is there any way I can troubleshoot the issue? Using Nzxt cam software I've noticed the temperature goes up to 81 degrees when it usually sits at 50-60, but I don't think that's enough to be the issue. When I feel the area just above the keyboard and to the left of the power button it feels very hot and seems like that is where the burning smell is coming from. The laptop is no longer under warranty but if its necessary I am willing to get it repaired.

    Any and all help appreciated.

    The first thing that you will want to do is open the back cover for a cleaning session. I highly recommend that you use canned air to get rid of the dust build-up. From there, you will also want to check where the smell is coming from before you power it on again. Send me your results along with the serial number of the laptop. Let's go from there.
