How do I get it to lower the cpu temps below 50? The temps oscillate between 50 and 52. I have tried adjusting the fan speed in the main screen and in the configuration screen but none of the adjustments made the fan speed increase. I should also add that the computer has no dust so everything is clean.

The default settinfs on speedfan make alot of temps weird. i can assure you. the flame has NOTHING to do with that your cpu is going to explode. its way OK. my old dual core runs at err... 68? and speedfan thinks its going to explode.

All its for is to monitor temps.
I wouldnt trust it to do much more.
And if your bothered. auto fan speed will do the job. just dont rely on it;)

what make and model is your cpu?

As for speedfan, I've often seen it not control the cpu fan speed, you should propbably look into your bios settings and usually it's under the power management feature.
From there you should be able to adjust the fan speed from there. Let me know how you make out.

gateways may everything so proprietary that you can't change much for settings.
it should auto-adjust for temp automatically.
usually they set a pretty high threshold around 60 degrees or so to keep the system quiet.
i wouldn't worry about it.
