A month or two ago, i bought an HP pavilion dv5- 1217ax lappy with following configs..
CPU: AMD Turion X2 Dual-Core RM-72
Intregrated GPU: ATI HD 3450 512MB dedicated
OS: Windows Vista Home Premium
Recently, i installed a temperature monitoring software "SpeedFan" and found that its temperature was shooting to 65 Celsius and always above it.
Besides my cousins lappy thats a Dell Vostro 1400 always showing its temp from 45 to 50C max. I checked my Task Manager, and its showing
5 to 25% CPU usage. Well thats a normal thing for Windows Vista to work i think.
I checked my lappy's fan (its vents are below the whole lappy frame), and it was running quitely, silently but yes it was running. Beside this i googled around the net, and i found that most of the people worried about there noisy superfast fans.
But then again my fans are silent, with the lappy's temperature off to 65C. Its actually hotty from keypads, touchpad, the right side of lappy vents and above the multimedia controls ( touch controls for volume +/-).
What shall i do guys???
Its almost not workable with a heating lappy!!!
Plz guys.. suggest the soln fast. Thanks in advance...

hi lackooo, thanks for info,
but there should be some solution to the problem.
HP can't just make us foolass.
My friend's HP lappy with C2D pavilion dv5, gives the temp reading of 50 to 55C.
But as i told u, my cousin's lappy, its again a C2D system, but from Dell vostro series, and never heats up to 50C even in normal
working condition. plz help guys, if any one else is facing such kind of problem

Ya i got it!! thanks
Actually, Intel buddies use TIM(thermal induction material) for heat reduction, i didn't know, AMD guys r not using it !!!
so whats the solution now, how can we add the material to the processor, can we ask HP to do it for us???
I think thats why. AMD's temp is always high!!
i am not going to leave HP dudes!!

AMD usually temp usually much higher than Intel. However, I still suggest you to clean the heatsink, dusts built-up there after a while.

If you have taken apart your laptop, open the heatsink too, even only operating around 6 mths. I am sure there will be some dusts stucked inside the metal brackets there.
My only HP/Compaq(Presario 2100US) laptop has no thermal paste in there too. However, I added a thermal tape there when I upgraded my cpu.
Yes I think HP should consider about this problem too.
