It's only a few months old, so unless it is defective, these temps may be normal for this mobo.
Board: Hewlett-Packard 30FC 01.54
Bus Clock: 200 megahertz
BIOS: Hewlett-Packard F.21 07/18/2008
Don't see any bios settings to tweak the fan speed. It blows great on boot. I'd actually like it to blow that hard all the time if possible.
model #: dv7-1135nr
appreciate any help I can get. Speedfan doesn't recognize the fan at all.
Solved! Go to Solution.

If the thermal module defective even the fan works it doesnâ t transfer heat from processor to heatsink module. Try to change the heatsink. (Always use heat sink compound when installing a new heatsink)

You could try a BIOS update:

Enhancements: Improves the security of pre-boot authentication (BIOS based) passwords by clearing data from volatile memory.
Fixes the description for the Factory Installed OS option in the F10 Setup Utility, which previously displayed incorrect information.
Is there anywhere to get a white sheet or more info on what the bios may fix?
Also, can you roll back an HP bios in case it causes new issues?
thank you so much for your quick responses.
the temp reading photo attached was just websurfing - not under any load.

i also have a dvd rom drive door that pops open randomly. may just have to send the laptop in to repair it. I don't really have course to do that if it's normal though. they've already offered to send a drive replacment, but i'm holding off for now. it's more of an irritation than anything. the drive burns and plays just fine.

AMD m780G chipset have advanced SMBus interfaces that generally won't allow Vista operating systems to use manual overides. Best bet is to do what many people I have helped do, and that is to downgrade to XP. This way you can use a third party Fan controller/SMBus software utility. Speed fan works well, but you might have to manually configure it. There are other softwares available that do the same thing, I just can't think of the names!!
