I have installed and run SpeedFan to monitor temperatures in my computer. My Laptop is a Compaq Evo N610c, which I have read on various forums has overheating issues commonplace. Unfortunately there seems to be no configurations available for download for this specific model, and so I cannot see or change the fan speed.
SpeedFan Report: HD0: 73C, Temp 1: 84C, Temp 2: 45C, Temp 3: 16C.
From what I've read, harddrives should be running typically around 40C, max 60C.
73C must be right because I could cook an egg on my laptop. It's too hot to touch for a long period.

But what I cannot determine from web searches is why. Why could my harddrive be getting so hot and what might I do to resolve it?

Thanks in advance
