Ok, I have a dv4-1152 running vista (64). 4 gigs memory and 4 gig processor. I use the laptop at room temperature.
The laptop is overheating but it's too the point of insanity. I can just have the OS open with the background processes running or I can have it in safemode with the screen open or closed and this thing has to be hitting at least 55C as fast as it can after I turn it on.
There is no hair or obstructions blocking the fan or air intake. It's been doing this since I've gotten the thing. The second I turn it on til when I turn it off, the fan is putting out all its got. Doesn't matter the position of the laptop, I have have it open on it's back and it will do it ad infinitum. I can put the darn thing on maximum or minimum performance setting, it does not matter
I have a presario that is quite as a mouse, granted it's only 2 gigs of memory and a 2 gig processor. It doesn't heat up unnecessarily.
I also have a dv4z-1000 running vista (32) with 3 gigs of memory and a 3 gig processor. That is also quiet doesn't heat up unnecessarily
So lemme put it this way, the problem is not envrionmental. So any ideas?
