Running SpeedFan, attached the image.
So here's my problem, HP G62, it's about 2 years old, pretty heavy usage.
I've cleared out startup programs and processes extensively, running my computer on absolutely minimal processes and services, on average my CPU usage never goes over 10%, yet even with this stated it often times runs extremely hot while just casually browsing the internet.
I know somethings wrong because my wife has an identical laptop and she can be doing virtually the same things as me (browsing the net, watching videos, etc.) and her computer will be fine.
This problem is exacerbated when I'm running videos (obviously) or games (duh) but it's to the point where I can't watch more than an hours worth of video without it overheating and shutting itself down to protect the system.
One major difference between my wifes computer and my mine is that I dual boot between Win7 and Ubuntu, as well as having a couple other OS' (Win7 Enterprise, Server 2008, etc.) on my computer so I can run them virtually for learning purposes. I have removed most of them and put them on an external HD but even after clearing my computer of almost 80gigs of memory it is still running very hot.
I do not use it on bed/pillow/blanket or any of that very often. You can rule these out, as it overheats often even while sitting on the table. This past week alone it has overheated at least 3 times and shut itself down because of it.
