Dv6000 fan always on high and causing lag although running very cool and idling at 0-1%.

[ Edited ]

This is really bothering me, my fan is always on high and the laptop is completely cool.  I cleaned out all the dust, even opened my laptop to take any remaining dust, but the fan is still very loud.  Once I go to watch a video or play a game in full screen, the fan freaks out and starts to lag whatever I am doing.  Also, as soon as the fan starts roaring away, with nothing running, it makes my cpu jump to 20-30% Any idea what the problem is? 


What I'm running:

Windows 7 (absoloutly new install)  - I have been running win7 since it came out with no problems, so I reinstalled it thinking that was the problem initially, but it's not.


2gb ram 2ghz


Exact laptop model - pavilion dv6426us


Date of problem start - 1/21/09
