i have a sl500 in a good shape, after a few mints of using its gets to 70, 80c through core temp and speed fan, and the laptops fan is not doing anything about it!
i'm pretty concerned, is there a way to speed it up?

This heat problem seems to be causing hard drive faults too.
I just installed Windows and all drivers, set it to the lowest and most battery saving power plan and told it to use active cooling whenever possible.
The fan runs now and then, but the machine is still deadly hot on the left side.
I measured over 65 degrees celsius on the HDD sensor after 20 minutes of idle on the desktop with the classic look in Windows 7
