how old is your laptop if I may ask?
Oh I see what you're saying. That's actually kind of how I was already doing it, I had my laptop sitting on one leg so the fan was totally unobstructed.
My laptop is about...5 years old, maybe a little less.
It's just odd because prior to this hard drive crash I didn't have any problems like this, is it possible this is somehow related to my new HD? My old one was 100gb and this one is 350gb so it's different, but Dell said it was compatible.
