Hi guys, i have a relative new computer and found 1 problem about it.... its too loud sometimes, even when im not doing anything it goes nuts.

I downloaded SpeedFan, just to see my temperature (i have done anything yet)

And got this result:

Is that normal for not doing anything?? If no how can i fix it?!
The fan is loud, and i have to put on high music just to kill the sound of the fan.

My computer specs
CPU: AMD Brazos Dual Core C50
Memory: 3GB
HDD: 320GB
Graphic Card: Radeon HD Graphics 6250M

You can try speed controls on the fans RPMs.

Rubber mounts or dampeners will reduce the sound by reducing the vibrations.

The HDD temp is ok, and GPU temp is on the high side.

Re-seating the CPU/heatsink will reduce the temps and thereby reduce the CPU fan speed. (I do realize that this is a relatively new computer).

Blow the laptop out with some compressed air.

A couple of things you can try:

1. Select "Balanced" (or similar) performance in Power Options in the Control Panel. This will lower the power draw as compared to "Performance" setting, and thereby lower the temps.

2. When you use the laptop at home, office, or in any other regular location, use a laptop cooler. Some laptop coolers have their own AC Adapter, and some draw their power from the USB port. The ones with an AC Adapter will not run down the laptop battery prematurely.

For a laptop I think that is normal, specially if that laptop is old. I recommend buying a laptop cooler.

Dust it out would be the first thing I would try. If that doesn't do anytihng then I would play around with power options. If all that fails then you can look at cooling pads for your laptop.
