Okay so I have this HUGE issue, my CPU reaches dangerous temps! My rig:
Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
AMD Turion X2 Ultra ZM-85 66 °C
Griffin 65nm Technology
4.00 GB DDR2 @ 400MHz (6-6-6-18)
Wistron 303C (Socket A) 54 °C
256MB GeForce 8200M G (HP) 57 °C
466GB Seagate ST9500420AS ATA Device (SATA) 43 °C
HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GP08NU6B ATA Device
Conexant High Definition SmartAudio 221
As you can see these temps are pretty warm, and I've got readings of 113C when playing games! Is this a temperature sensor issue? According to AMD, the CPU turns of when it hits 100C. Any suggestions would be appreciated and thanks in advance!
to me it seems to be a sensor issue, check that all your bios and drivers are up to date, if the cpu was actually running at 113c you would almost definitley feel excess heat coming from the laptop and it would have shut down or blue screened. I would contact your supplier if you have any warranty and see what they say.
The best way to tell if the sensor is broken, or not supported, is to put your hand near the exhaust and use your own judgment if the computer is putting out that kind of heat, trust you'll be able to tell. If it seems relatively warm and its says its still at 113 C, than chances are your sensor is busted. If it is near searing hot than your sensor is right and the cpu is working outside its thermal envelope, which is kinda unusual. Anyways, a simple solution to cooling down a laptop is to take canned air to clean out the exhaust and then use a cooling pad. ie
