Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook
I have a Dell Inspiron B130 which I've upgraded to 2G Ram and a 160GB hard drive. I thought possibly the upgrades were responsible for my computer running hot, idle it shows a temp of sometimes 70C or above. When I replaced the upgrades with the original Ram (512K) and hard drive (40G), it still runs the same. I've cleaned out the fan and heat sink and replaced the thermal compound. It still runs hot. This only started happening within the last six months. Any ideas what may be going on? Thanks.
I had a similar problem with a Dell Inspiron 1300. Solution: Clean the heat sink. It was clogged with dust not allowing free air circulation. After cleaning silence....ahhhh

My guess is that CPU fan, it there is one, is not working properly and your computer is heating up. Is it turning off, too, occasionally after a period of time? Suggest a new CPU fan.
