My laptop has started to run VERY hot! The fan seems to run at high RPM all the time, where as it did not before. Right now I show 97 processes running, 16% CPU and Physical Mem. is 54%. My Laptop specs are : Windows Vista x64, AMD X2 2.1, 4gigs DDR2.

My question is...Is there an application that I can run to find out what is causing the laptop to work much harder all of a sudden to cause it to be so hot. Or why? And possibly change or remove to help?

How is the laptop used? Where is it used? Is it used on a bed?
If so, please don't use it on the bed, on the sofa or anywhere that blocks up the vents on the bottom of the laptop, otherwise it will get hot.
