My mate has a Hp laptop (14.1 screen) which has run quite happily for about 6 months but recently has had serious overheating problems. With its additional external cooler the Pentium M 735 (1.7Ghz) reaches around 70 degrees within about 20 minutes of working non cpu taxing applications, ie MSN or word. Whenever he plays games he has to slow the ruddy thing down (with notebook hardware tools) to around 1.4Ghz to make sure the processor doesn't reach 96 degrees and auto shut down. I advised him to get the notebook hardware tools to slow down the chip and lower the voltage, and also told him to get speedfan but this hasn't really helped (ps could it be that the fan has..stopped working???). He's cleaned out the vents with canned air, any suggestions. Its making it unusable in my opinion, no way should it be runnning 70+ degrees when only on MSN, mine only reaches 52max when oc'd. Any suggestions would be gratefully recieved, I' haven't a clue how to fix it, as my solutions haven't worked.
