So basically no matter where I have it or anything it's always just really really hot. Even on a flat desk. But I've used my friends' dells before and put them right on my lap and I don't feel any warmth at all (and I know you're not supposed to put them on your lap anyways, but if i put mine on my lap it seriously gets unbearably hot and the fan gets SO loud)
I rarely do anything that should be taxing for the computer - the most i do is some programming in VB
.net 2008 and play GTA - and this is VERY rare. Almost all of the time i'm just surfing the web or talking to people on AIM or on forums.
I contacted HP support about this and they really weren't too helpful; had me flash to the most recent BIOS and then make sure power management was installed right. didn't seem to do much
Unless the computer is OFF or asleep, the bottom is always really really warm and the place where i put my wrists as i type is like a little heating pad too...
Aha... as I'm typing on my flat desk with my display at minimum brightness, the fan just got REALLY loud for no reason!!! WTF?? This is so frustrating I paid a lot of money for this thing!
