Can you be more specific?

I'd find it annoying to use a machine that was that hot. Are you telling us the CPU temp or the laptop's temperature?

The basics

In reply to: laptop temperature....

If you had this laptop for sometime and never cleaned it, do so. Blow out the vents, etc. with compressed "canned air" NOT an air hose. Some laptops use "heat tubes" to xfer heat away from cpu, instead solely on fans. And are your fan(s) working? You may find using a laptop cooler can work well. Since, you provided no details of your system, this pretty much what I can offer. good luck
