Try running with the display connected, but use the charger that came with the laptop. Don't connect the display's MagSafe connector. If the laptop still overheats then there is something wrong with the laptop. If it overheats only when using the display's MagSafe connector then there is something wrong with the display.

thank you i tried your advice. the monitor does seem to work with the magsafe charger that came with the laptop. But im still seeing if it'll overheat. However, isn't it true that when the battery reaches 100%, the magsafe stops charging?

It should stop charging at 100% but the display could be putting excess voltage on its MagSafe connnector.

great the external magsafe charger works fine. As you said, the monitor's magsafe charger might be adding extra voltage for some reason so thanks for your help! Now i don't have to worry about replacing the battery or anything
