i have got a dell inpiron e1505 and the CPU is running hot 54c when idle 93c when under full load (core 2 duo t7200)

is there any solution to this madness :sweat: 

1 take it apart and replace the thermal compound with as5 :whistle: 


2 ignore it and live a hot life :pfff: 


3 or ask geek squad :cry:

If you are comfortable with taking it apart, then I would apply AS5. If not, then ask geek squad to do it for you.

When the warranty on my new laptop expires I intend on replacing the thermal paste myself.

I think you may need to clean out the inside. Your fan(s) may be blocked by dust. There's some air spray thingy you can buy for around $5 that will probably do the trick. I would also probably buy a laptop cooler to assist. Geek Squad [BestBuy] are only out for your money.. by the way.
