I have an HP ze4547wm 2.4 Ghz Celeron (512MB ram) notebook computer. I know that Celeron's are pretty notorious for overheating, and mine pushes the limit. I tracked my CPU & HDD temps yesterday with Everest and they peaked at 76°C and 56°C respectively. The fan is noticably loud, but not so loud that it sounds like its going bad. It wouldn't be a big deal except that I use my laptop for home recording, and all the fan noise bleeds over onto the tracks.
I'm going to give my laptop a good throrough cleaning tonight, but is there any other way I can lower the temp on my laptop, or more importantly lower the noise level?? Is it a feasible solution to replace laptop coolant fans or is it just too much of a pain?
