I have a M5x0N alienware laptop. The fan sounds loud often. I have cleaned it and it still gets loud. I checked the CPU temps and they are getting up to around 67C, which isnt the max. The max temp i found out was 85C. It usually only shuts off when I do HD Editing and am rendering a video file, however the fan is quite loud all the time. I have 1gig of ram and thought I might need more but am not sure. My processor is the T550 1.67 gigahertz Intel Core 2 Duo with 64 kilobyte primary memory cache, 2048 kilobyte secondary memory cache. Sitting at idle the core temps are around 54C and the HD at 33C. Any ideas on what I should do to solve my problems? Would more ram help?
