My Laptop is reporting that my hard drive temp is 56c is that acceptable it does not go above this and when the fan comes on it flickers between 55 and 56c. Apart from that it is stable................ Any comments to reassure me or for me to be concerned

Thanks in advance

depending on hard drive it shouldn't go much above 50c, that is the normal highest temp. Find out what make of hard drive you have, then go to the manufactures website and that should give you max op temp.

Its an Hitachi 60gb for my acer laptop.HITACHI_DK23FA-60 (58.6GB) at the moment it is reading 45c i dont know why it has changed all of a sudden. I will have to wait as laptop has only been on for 20mins.
