My HP Pavilion dv7 seems too hot. CUPID Hardware Monitor says
Room temperature is about 78 degrees
TZ01 132 degrees
PCH 167 degrees
GMCH 131 degrees
machine is 1 year old or so and has never been in a dirty or dusty environment. Air inflow grills look clean
Is there a way to tell if fan is working? Is there a way to adjust the fan's operation? Any other ideas?

You can use a can of compressed air to blow the vents out (computer off) and then make sure you've got the latest BIOS update installed.

Sometimes it takes more than just blowing it out with air.
This is a prime example of someone just using air without taking off the keyboard.
Check out the picture of the "BEAST" he found.
