I have an MSI GS63 Stealth VR (Intel i7-6700HQ / 16GB RAM / GTX 1060) and I noticed that lately it's been getting really hot and when I go to unplug it, one of the fans is coming on and it will not shut off. And I wind up draining all my battery because of it. I used to get 2 hours and 15 minutes on a full charge and now I barely get 40 minutes on a full charge. Is there something that I am doing wrong? What would cause my laptop to overheat? Would it be just a BIOS update or am I looking at something wrong with the laptop internally?

You might want to see if you have any BIOS update(s) pending for your laptop. Which version are you currently on? Assuming you're on Windows 10, which version are you on? How long has the laptop been under taxation/use? Often times a clogged venting system can cause a heat build up and the need for the fans to be at full speed.
