It may be time to clean the insides of the pc.Unplug the PC and open the case. Use a can of air to blow out dust from around the processor,fans,etc. Make sure to hold the fans to keep them from spinning when using the air.
When did you last perform a system recovery?
Have you updated the bios?

The D: drive will not change. It always leaves extra space incase it needs to update the recovery partition.
Make sure you leave only the mouse,monitor and keyboard connected. Disable the internet while performing this until you need internet again.
You need to perform a Destructive Recovery. When you get to step 5 pay close attention to the steps.

I have a similar problem on a Presario 2170. The fan runs continually if the room temperature is above 75. I have cleaned the fans and cpu before but that didn't help. How would a bios upgrade help?
