Hi All,

I have a HP Pavilion zd7010us. I have been using it with no problem for about 7 months. About a week ago, I downloaded
MobileMeter. It reports;

Frequency 2.66 GHz
Temperature 66.00 Celsius
Charge Rate 0.00 Watt
HDD #0 36.00 Celsius

According to my manual, the operating temperature for the machine is 5 Celsius to 35 Celsius. I put a thermometer in fron of the
exhaust vent on the left side of the machine, and it reports 61 Celsius. After being on for more than 15 minutes, it always gets
up to 66 Celsius. Should I worry about the amount of heat that is generated?

I am assuming that MobileMeter is accurate . . . I say this because I have other programs that report hard disk temperature and
they all agree. If you have any experience about the HP Pavilion zd7010us or MobileMeter, I would welcome your comments.

Ciao . . . C.Joseph

I think what they mean by operation temp is 5 to 35 is don't operate the
computer in a room cooler than 5 or warmer than 35.

The 66C seems a bit high at idle, but it is the peak temperature under
CPU load that is critical. What temp do you see say during a SpyBot
search (which on my laptops is a good combinaton of HD and CPU load)?
Most laptops use a heat pipe cooling system with a heat exchanger to the
ambiant air that does become fouled with dust or plugged with fibers. A
can of compressed air "dust cleaner" from a computer or office supply
will remove fouling in the heat exchanger.

I would suggest that the manual should have said "environment temperature"
instead of "operating temperature". I'm guessing this refers to the room
temperature instead of the temperature in the computer. However, I could be
wrong,

Hi Marlin,

You are right. They are talking about operating environment. The temperature is the temperature at the CPU. The specification
don't say what that maximum should be.
