Default Huge overheat problem

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...name=c00387088

those are my pc specs just saying maybe it would help. as you can see i have a amd 3400 and i opened it up and has one fan the one on the heat sink and then one regular fan so its like two but i downloaded everest and the cpu tems are at 65c and the mbo is 49c and the hard drive temps are at 46c which i think is suppose to be really hot for an amd. wat would you advise to lower the temps? also i use task manager and i have no task running and it says the processor is working at full capacity. anyone know aht could be wrong and what i should do?

Yeah, that's not bad, but not good. Is it custom-built? If not, I suggest a new application of thermal paste. Also, there are lots of aftermarket cooling accessories that can help out.

you could always use a desktop fan and keep the side panel of your tower off, blowing air into the tower, for the time being while you get another propper fan.

Um, you could do that, but it isn't really recommended.
