I recently had my hp pavilion dv9000t sent in so they could replace the motherboard. After I get it back I have been having issues doing anything requiring any real cpu speed. Resource Monitor shows that my maximum frequency is dropping almost at random (causing a huge drop in performance). My battery settings are set to run at 100% so I am not sure why this happened. Checking SpeedFan showed me that my temp for both cores spike crazily (90 degrees +!) when running a movie in full screen. I can hear the fan going as fast as it can, but I don’t know if that’s the problem or not. I can't check the fans speed because SpeedFan does not recognize any fans (is that bad?). My question is what exactly is causing this overheating? Is there an internal fan not working? The external fan (the one I can hear anyway) seems to be going hard, why is it not cooling the system?

Thanks! (Attached image is of speedfan and resource monitor)

Use the Bios for the most accurate temp readings, SpeedFan is not reliable.
If the issue was not present before the warranty work was performed I would contact HP and alert them to the issue.
