Alright so I am using the program, [SpeedFan]

LAPTOP (Dell Inspiron 1520)
My processor: T7500 Core 2 DUO 2.20 GHz
My GPU: GeForce 9600M GT

IDLE:
My cores (Core 0 and Core 1) will stay at a temperature of about 63 C (150 F)
My GPU will stay at about 55 C (131 F)

In use: (50%+ CPU Usage)
Core 0 and Core 1 will peak at 98 C (209 F)
GPU will peak at 76 C (169 F)

What happens:
The temperature climbs to its peak, then the computer lags REALLY hard while the temperature drops about 20%. While the temperature increases, It resumes normal performance. Here's an image.

My computer has never had this issue before. It gets EXTREMELY hot. I have had to resort to using a frozen gel pack to put under my computer. (This will sometimes keep the temperature down about 10-20 degrees F, But will only stay cold for about 10-15 minutes.)

The Fan works fine. It also has plenty of circulation.

Can someone please help me find a way to keep it ocoler?
Also, can someone tell me normal temperatures for cores that are working at full speed? (50%+)

Thanks.

Welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

Although your fan is blowing air onto the heat sink, there is a possibility the heat sink its self is clogged with lint or dust from the very air it sucks in.

I would suggest you removing the bottom panel to gain access to the heat sink to be sure this is not the case as looks from the out side can be deceiving.

If in the event you do remove the heat sink, I would suggest you purchase Antec brand silver formula 5 thermal paste/grease, then remove the heat sink and clean off any old paste from the heat sink and processor core, then put a new thin layer of thermal paste between the processor and heat sink and re-install the heat sink.

Then recheck your temperatures again.

Let us know how things have turned out by posting back your results. :thumbsup:
