Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
It doesn't really matter if the cpu is located directly under the mousepad. Other things inside your notebook can produce heat. You will probably find that a fan inside the case isn't working.
Often the fan does not come on until the heat builds up so it is possible that the fan might be ok and the sensor that detects the heat may be broken.
A friend of mine told me that his internal fan wasn't working so he went out and bought one of those pads that you sit your notebook on. The pad has fans built into it. I didn't think this would be enough to draw the heat away but it worked for him.
Otherwise If your not comforatble pulling your notebook apart I'd get a professional to fix it.
