no i havn't tried replacing the battery i didn't think about it because it was the wire getting hot if i remove the battery and run it on the power cord will that be able to check if the battery is the problem? because i dont have a spare to try

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
The battery is nearly always the cause of this and as it overheats it slows the flow of power to it which heats up the wire and pretty much everything else near it.
I strongly advise to stop using the Laptop as have the battery replaced, as this is very likely to be the cause.
