Reasons for overheating
Occasionally, you might encounter that your laptop battery or its AC adapter gets overheated. This might be due to the use of unauthorized batteries or chargers with your Lenovo laptop.

Dust and other particles blocking your laptop vents would also contribute to overheating of your laptop. The running of many high-powered applications might also lead to your system getting overheated.
The proper handling of your laptop could help in rectifying the issue to some extent. While placing your laptop on a surface, you are required to ensure that the surface is flat and hard. You are also required to ensure that the vents at the bottom, side and back of your laptop are not blocked. The fan equipped with your laptop is also required to be properly functional. You could also use a laptop cooling pad with a fan to cool your system. You could also try clearing the fan exit and the heatsink vanes and fan by spraying canned air.
Events of overheating of your laptop batteries and charger could be overcome by replacing your battery with another Lenovo-made or other authorized batteries. If the issues of overheating continue even after trying out several remedial measures, you are required to contact Lenovo and get a replacement immediately. You are also required to ensure that the new battery is compatible with your Lenovo ThinkPad T410s.
