ALRIGHT. MOST OF YOU GUYS ARE MISLEADING IN MY OPINION.
Here is my stuff:
1. Cooling pad does help, but NOT MUCH. If you recognize.. if your core issue occurs with FANs and the cooling pad only clears the surrounding air a little better by blowing at the vents.....THE STUFF VENTS WITH DUST COVERING.... I'd say A VACUUM works better than that! But still, CLEAN THE VENTS. Void the Warranty.. SO WHAT? I mean I have a fresh example. We had two HP laptops. Both extensively hot. Both are DV2000 family with Santa Rosa T5450 and Napa T2350 CPUs. Both are good processors with bad houses. One of them got broke early enough... sent to a facility and fixed with some money. Vents are FLUSHED. Then it's working fine from then. The other... with G72 terrifying graphics.... got fried after the user used too much US Open. Now our family works with ThinkPads... well.. they really are cool like heck. No kidding.
2. RMClock will be your lifesaver, after you cannot return your HP back to retailers.....
LOWER YOUR VOLTAGE as much as possible, it lowers heat dissipation. It gives less pressure for the cooling system. 3. Still... If you don't early-bird the fan to run at some low speeds... Even ULV can make a huge temp and then the cooling system will be under the same stress... Because heat goes easier!.. But then with BIOS settings... Fan turns itself off ASAP! So find a HP Fan control software. Or stuff like this. That'd be my three swords for HP Laptop Heating issues.

As mentioned in my previous posting in this thread, some issues with the XP- Powerschemes prevented the adjustment of the actual processor speeds and it kept running on full speed regardless of CPU usage - generating significant amounts of heat and draining the battery quickly.
Just out of interest to see if this problem persists also in later versions of Windows - could you pls download the small utility CPUZ http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html
and monitor the actual internal processor speed ?
Is it adjusting itself based on CPU load or steady at full speed ? If the later, pls try another power scheme.

My fan are only running at 30%, and I am not sure how to increase speeds. I have not used the BIOS before and I have Everest running to tell me temperatures. It runs at about 60-90 C and once it hits 80 I shuut it down to avoid overheating. This is quite bothersome because if the fans were running properly it would not overheat. Can anyone tell me how to increase the fan speeds?

you can use a blower to push air through the vents this will not void your warrenty. ps make sure the notebook is powered off , unpluged and the batteries removed

I have this exact same issue. However, I have my laptop on a metal grated table about 3 inches tall. I also have a 20inch box fan behind it blowing on high and I still have my computer overheat and shut down.
