Default aww my poor laptop

as of this afternoon its been going really slow. constant hdd action. few windows reports saying that the hdd couldnt read a file on the hard disk, and its just been a pain. someone sent me a hdd program. showed my temp was 45 deg at one point, and a few other red errors. i also did a quick scan, and all of it was green except for 1 random red block.
all of this was getting me worried. i just ran hijack this and it seemed to pickup a load of nasties. i removed some stuff and am scanning for viruses and stuff. i hope thats the problem.
atleast ive backed up my data
it seems to be running fine now anyway, apart from the charging light isnt on. it just flashes randomly sometimes
stupid computers

My GPU usually runs between 71 and 77 degrees. Seems normal for me.

My notebook is pretty similar to yours.

What type of RAM does your video card use?

Who knows. My notebook gets pretty hot at times, but it's normal since the aluminum enclosure also acts as a heat sink.

This might also have to do with Nvidia's recent recall.

Be sure to check if Dell has an extended guarantee for your GPU.
