Your netbook has a fan? Mine doesn't. I haven't heard of any that does. My Toshiba netbook run at a minimum temperature of 55C under Windoze. It's slightly lower on ubuntu. Anyhoo, netbooks are underpowered machines and you might be straining it beyond its limit by viewing movies. I got a laptop cooling tray with fans for mine. Works like a charm.

Can you help with this problem?
