HP pavilion TX100 laptop overheating

rtod2 used Ask the Experts™
I have a laptop that is overheating.  The speculation in the HP forums is that if the fan could be forced to stay on all the time, it would not overheat.  My thought also was that there might be a better fan for that laptop.  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

That's what I am finding also.  I do notice however, that there appears to be no fan action at all and I seem to remember our buying an external fan base thing for it to sit on.  That fan is now out too which would make sense why we have not been able to use it.  

What fans are on that unit?
Can they be replaced with better ones?
they cannot be upgraded. the are only hp makes the fans.
I have the same problem with my hp HDX, get a cooling pad for it to sit on.
