Laptop seems to be Overheating!

I have a presario 2500 laptop running WIN XP PRO, which gets very hot within about 15 mins of being switched on. The Fan comes on, indeed comes on after about 5 mins. Then what seems to be a second fan cuts in and by the sound it makes, makes me think it is running at top speed and will stay on until i turn the unit off sometime later.

can anyone recommend a program that i can download that will tell me if the laptop is running hot..eventhough just by touching it i think it is a forgone conclusion that it is.

thanks.

Have you checked that both fans are working? If one fan is not working, which is likely, the other fan will have to work harder to main temperature.
