whoa that's not good....Make sure the vents aren't blocked, or try cleaning out dust that may be blocking those vents.

Contact HP and ask them to take a look at it. They will probably replace the fans as it sounds like they are defective. It shouldn't get anywhere near that hot if the fans are running (unless they are completely clogged with dust).

HP has a very good turnaround. Print up those screenshots and include them in the box (they will send you prepaid shipping materials) when you send it in. They should fix the problem.
