what is the normal operating temperatures for CPU and HDDs on a laptop. I am using an lg E300 which seems to be running hotter than most laptops. I have installed CPUID and I am getting around 54 degrees for the CPU and 42 for the hard drive. Please Assist
That's normal, buddy. Don't worry about that.
Laptops are designed to stand with heat more than desktop. For comparison, my old (2,5 years) Toshiba M200 running: CPU=60'C and HDD=50'C. That's with 30'C ambient temperature, I ever reached 70'C (CPU) and 60'C (HDD) when it's get hot in my room (35'C+)...
