I'd suggest installing SpeedFAN, I8kfanGUI or a similar app so you can manually specify when your fans should turn on\off and at what temperatures. Most of these apps will also have a "Enable DELL support" option that will fix problems with their CPU.

Note: I have not used I8kfanGUI with Windows 7 so I do not know if it is compatible. I can say that I8kfanGUI was written specifically to overcome the poor thermal management of Dell laptops and was a lifesaver to quite a few corporations.
You speak the truth...Brand new Dell latop decided to stop spinning its fans two weeks after warranty went bye bye...downloaded that app and never did the laptop run super hot if I could get that type of app for my compal laptop also
