I noticed recently that my HP G62-407DX Note book PC

Gets hot in the location of the Southbridge chip.

I feel noticeable heat on the lower left hand corner of the key board.

I have good temperatures at the AMD Phenom II P650 Dual-Core processor.

Fan is working correctly.

Windows update is sending me AMD SMBus updates.

I checked device manager and it says "No drivers are installed for this device".

Could this be the reason why it is running hot?
