  4. Looks like a laptop to me and if so those temps are probably as good as you are going to get.
  5. Oh yeah, in the title : )

    Blow the dust out of it.

  7. If the laptop is clean and the heat is not caused by built up dust and dirt about all you can do is buy one of those coolers you sit it on. If it's a new laptop you might can RMA it because it obviously should not be overheating so easily.
  8. I cleaned it out and those temps are with a cooling pad, i cant do any decent gaming, is it possible too buy a cooler fan for a laptop and get it sent in for replacement? Or even do it yourself?
  9. You are pretty much stuck with what you bought for laptop cooling. You might check google and ee if other are having the same problem with that model. If it's still under warranty contact them and see if they will take it back.
