HP laptop recently started to overheat
My HP dv2500 laptop recently started overheating. It's always gotten quite hot when I've played games and such on it, but the last week or so it suddenly turned very bad. After only maybe 20 minutes uptime, just browsing the web, it's as hot as a stove, major visual errors come up on the screen, looking a bit like LSD at the laser show, and then it reboots. The process is then repeated, only it goes into hippie-mode a lot faster.
I didn't install any new software that I can think of just previously to this. Today I tried getting SpeedFan, which for some reason shows that I have no fans in my computer. I'm pretty sure I do have fans, or did I get something completely wrong?
Please, do send help

Yay, super fun time update!
Things went worse just now. I installed some other program for monitoring fans and stuff since FanSpeed didn't find my fans. The new program, whose name I can't for my life remember, required a restart of the computer. Only when it was starting up again windows wouldn't start, some sort of startup repair kicked in, and did nothing.
Wtf is wrong? Any ideas?

i think you need to increase the RPM
well i suggest: go to the bios setting...there you have the option to increase the fan speed,,we try that or contact the server center people and change the heatsink fan
