I have a hp dv9000t that apparently runs at 80 degrees Celsius at idle. That's right, it's only idle at 80. Under load, it can go 100+. I've tried a clean install of windows, updated the BIOS, and cleaned the fans. What else am I missing?

I would double check that it is reading in Celsius first. But I do think that if thats correct then I imagine that is way to high. I don't know what the thermal capacity for the C2D T7400 is but my C2D E6600 (which is almost an exact match to yours but higher clock speed on the desktop side) runs at 32C idle and 42C 100% load.

Quite frankly for a laptop, I don't think that is so high. I have a Core Duo 2.0ghz laptop which reaches 99C under load (f@H). It does run at about 57C at idle though. Compared to my desktop temps, it used to make me scared, so I got the three-year extended warranty, and now, I forget about it.

I assume your laptop is usually sitting on a desk or something, not obstructed by blankets or a bed mattress, etc?

Yea to all, but does it matter that it's a low end Core 2 Duo T5600?
