HP Pavillion G7 Temperature


Active Member
Hey all,

Wondered if you can help.

I bought a brand new 19" HP Pavilion G7 I3 laptop last month and its been great, but a few days ago its gone from silent to the fan running quite loud, on & off.

The cpu temp at idle is about 49-50c and the motherboard is the same, Is this normal or do I have a duff ?

Also i've notcied the to the left of the track pad its getting quite warm.

I just use it for surfing,email and sometimes watch a movie on it..nothing more (no games) etc.

I have updated the bios and all the drivers etc as recommended per the HP website.

any ideas

Thanks in advance for your help
