    Default Monitoring laptop temperature?

    Hi all,
    I have a Dell Inspiron E1505, and although I'm sure I have no overheating problems with it, I would like to know how to monitor its temperature. Is there some special hardware I have to install, or is there some software program available that can monitor the temperature (how would a program do this)?

    I don't really have any idea about this, so thanks for any help.

    Thanks for the link, but that one only monitors hard drive temperature. Is there a program to monitor CPU temperature too?

    Just curious, but how do software programs monitor the temperature? I would think that there needs to be some hardware to sense the temperature.

    Also, what are the safe temperatures for CPU and hard drive? I read that 60 degrees Celsius should be max for hard drive. Is this true, and what about CPU?

    Thanks again

    I found Notebook Hardware Control on another thread and it seems to work fine, does anyone else use it? One thing about it though is that whenever I start the program it dims my screen and I have to turn brightness back up. Is this normal, and why does it do this?

    MOBILE METER The best monitoring program ever, though this program cant sound alarm. Extremely low in resources, the program itself is only 41kb in size.

    for HDD health, you can HDTune

    that program works by communicating with acpi, i have never seen this problem before, but it seems your motherboard doesn't support ACPI? anyway, i am very sure it works on Dell inspiron 6400 Centrino Duo or inspiron 1501 turion x2

    I have used the "fangui" program for over a year. Works fine and provides a lot of control over the fans and visability to temps. I also have the notebook sitting on a notebook fan cooler. Google fangui and you should be able to locate it. Was done by a great guy in Germany. I think Diefer is his name.

    kotrtim, I don't know what the problem is, could it be caused by some settings on the laptop? I have a Dell E1505 which is the same as Inspiron 6400.
