Hi. whilst rendering SPECCY shows CPU 81 degrees c and mother board around 84. Also someone suggested my graphics card is not registered by SPECCY under summary it shows::

Generic PnP Monitor (1920x1080@60Hz)
(Illegal Vendor ID)"

It should show up as GFORCE GT540M 2GB dedicated. Does SPECCY not recognising this make a difference? The Laptop is ASUS N53S so it shouldn't have a problem.

Not sure what to look for and what to 'tweak' to lower the temperature. Any ideas??

Hi and welcome to B-C,

The high temperatures could be due to a buildup of dust.

Assuming this is a desktop:
Switch off at the wall but leave the plug in to maintain the earth / ground connection to the motherboard.
Take the side panel off a look at the fans / vents / motherboard to see if there is a build-up of dust.

If there is you can blow it away with a can of compressed air ( I would do this outside ) or use a very soft brush.
Do not be tempted to use a vacuum as this can produce static - which is harmful to some of the components.

You could try running the machine with the side panel off.
If this makes a significant difference then it looks like air-flow through the case could be the problem.
Make sure the fans are working and spinning quickly.

You could be getting a bogus reading. How does the air coming out of the Laptop feel? Warm, Very hot? Is the fan racing? The fan is temperature controlled and if it isn't racing the L/T most likely isn't overheating.

You could try HW Monitor, that could possibly give you a better reading.
