How are you measuring the temp of the CPU?
What are the model numbers of the components in your system?

try hovering out the intake on the fan you might be quite supprized how much muck there is and check that the fan is working. also Mondoman is right how are you measuring the temp of the CPU BIOS temp is best many windows based programs have problems with getting acurate readings from laptop mb chipsets.

Sometimes the heatpipes lose conductivety because some of them tend to leak, and then the fan can not blow the heat away from the heatsink properly. Of course this is assuming your model has heatpipes, however a simple replacement of the heatsink and fan assembly was the fix for my overheating P4.
