I have an old HP Compaq 6510b laptop with 3 GB DDR II RAM, 80 GB Hard drive (still working fine), running Windows 7 Pro. I had installed speedfan a couple months ago, but then removed it from the startup and forgot about it. Today, I was working with my lappy and it started heating too much in less than 5 minutes. That was when I thought I should check the CPU and mobo temps, and started Speedfan. It seems I had started a full scan in BitDefender and that was constantly keeping the CPU at 100%. The remote temp. reached 100 degrees centigrade and I could smell something frying. Fortunately, I was able figure this out quickly, and stopped the full system scan. Then shutdown the lappy, for a while. Now, the CPU isn't at 100% anymore, BUT the temps are still very high. I slept for a while and restarted the lappy after I woke up. You can see the initial temps. in the first speedfan screenshot. Been running since half an hour and you can see the temps in the second screenshot. Except the hdd temp, all other temps. are over 80 degrees centigrade. Is there anything I can do to lower the temps.? Any help appreciated.
