Hey, I am using a laptop with an AMD Turion II K10 dual core processor. My idle temps are a little strange. The temperatures are at 75 degrees. Is this something I should be concerned about? I hear people with idle temps of 50... Using Windows 7 with integrated graphics with power setting at High performance.

Celsius?

You likely need to open it up and clean the dust out of the heatsinks.

Yeah, Celsius. Is there any easy way of doing that without some over complicated method?

Putting a vacuum cleaner on low against where the air goes into your laptop is an option, but you get the most out of actually pulling it open.

What model is it? Some are quite easy to clean, though some are a bit harder.

I have a Satellite L675D-S7016 from Toshiba. Though I think I will stick to my current cooling method of an external fan blowing over it whilst it sits on a raised, ventilated platform.

Solved this issue. I used an air compressor at 30 PSI blowing into the outtake vent while the main fan was being held by a paper clip. Temps are back down to the 40-50 degrees Celsius.
