I have an Asus eee PC 1201N. It shuts down completely unexpectedly. I called Asus for help. They helped me install the latest Bios but that doesn't seem to have helped much. I think my netbook is overheating and shutting down. I've installed SpeedFan 4.45 and Core Temp 1.0. Each software shows different temperatures at the same moment.
Example:
Core Tem 1.0: TjMax: 125 deg. C, core 0: 78 deg C, core 1: 80 deg C
Speed Fan 4.45: GPU: 58 deg C, HDO: 29 deg C, Tem1: 68 deg C, core 0: 42 deg C, core 1: 44 deg C
Can somebody explain to me where the differences comes from? Which program is more reliable?
How can I lower the cpu temperature? How can I speed up the fan? BTW, I don't see the fan speed in SpeedFan - why?

Different readings is incompatibility with the hardware, can not say which one is correct. Have you cleaned all your air vents?
Seriously doubt that you can get any fan control!

None of those third party software solutions are configured to run on a netbook. Check your BIOS it will have correct temp readings.

Hi Rolli,

I cannot find the temp. reading in my netbook's BIOS. Looked at every tab/menu but don't see it. Any suggestions?

Yes, I actually took the netbook apart and used the canned air to clean the vents/fan. That didn't help much. Is there any software to measure the cpu temp. that would be compatible with this particular netbook?

One of them might be right but impossible to tell which one. No health tab in BIOS I take it.
When you took it apart did you take the heatsink of the CPU?
