Right now? On idle:
  • CPU: 42C/50C (min/max)
  • GPU: 51C/55C (min/max)

Benchmarking with FurMark, GPU can reach up to 75C.

I would better money on this being a hardware fault. Flash the BIOS from HP's site, then try uninstalling and reinstalling the ACPI driver. If that doesn't work, send it back to HP - this is probably a motherboard fault.

Actually, I can't rely directly on HP Support, since this laptop is not supported by HP Brazil.

I'm not an expert, but could this really be a faulty hardware? I mean, even if it was, shouldn't I be getting BSODs and things like that? And how do I exactly reinstall the ACPI drivers?

Right click the ACPI entry in device manager select uninstall and reboot. Things may slow down create a restore point before hand. This points to hardware, programs do not randomly crash, especially after fresh 7 installs.

There are many "ACPI" entries in the Device Manager. I can't find a guide for uninstalling it.

Under "Computer":
  • ACPI x64-based PC (this one has any "Uninstall" option greyed-out)
Under "System devices":
  • ACPI Fan
  • ACPI Fixed Feature Button
  • ACPI Lid
  • ACPI Power Button
  • ACPI Sleep Button
  • ACPI Thermal Zone
  • Microsoft ACPI-Compilant Embedded Controller
  • Microsoft ACPI-Compilant System
  • Microsoft Windows Management Interface for ACPI

Just a question for ya... did you have them(Nvidia) choose your driver or did you put in your card specs and d/l yourself? If so did you happen to choose 32bit instead of 64bit?
MSI Afterburner <---- get this and post a pic of your settings and temps. are you overclocking at all?

Nope, I've always downloaded the 64-bit versions of all driver versions I've tested, from nVidia's website and from LaptopVideo2Go.com. I never overclocked anything.

Firefox keeps crashing, and I've noticed that the bigger responsible for this is Flash Player.

Does your video have a fan on it...If so using the bottom control in afterburner, click it from auto then turn it up into the 60+ range and see if more air helps.

With all your driver updating you don't happen to have an Nvidia 3d vision plug-in enabled in FF?

Also have you updated Flash itself? to 10? The plug-in and all?

I don't think there is a dedicated fan to the GPU itself, so the "Auto" button is greyed-out. I have the latest version of the Flash Player 10 plug-in. I also tried using version 9 and beta version 10.1.

Here's the thread I started @ Adobe Forums a few weeks ago: "http://forums.adobe.com/message/2607583".
