catching this thread a bit late... it sounds like misapllied or a bad
batch of paste - a load of hp 6715b laptops had thermal grease probs -
mine had fans on full blast and still ran hot enough to cut out on
warm days until I got some new grease and applied it - runs quiet and
fairly cool now, esp after cleaning the fan exhaust - hust a shame I
left it too late and need a new battery as this one got cooked and now
empties in about 300 seconds
