Windows 7: Is this Toshiba running too hot? Repaste CPU?

Mm I got this for the CPU on a Google ARK | Intel® Celeron® Processor 900 (1M Cache, 2.20 GHz, 800 MHz FSB) and the Tcase is 105C now I think that either I have the wrong CPU or am missing something.
In any case (no pun) that temp is frying the thing and if nothing else is drying out the compound even faster. Usually the graphics chip sits alongside or very close to the CPU sharing the heatsink (cooler) and in my experience with Toshibas the amount applied at manufacture does vary from machine to machine usually on the rather skimpy side.
Another thing is that perhaps the cooling pipes are or always have been a tad on the poorly made side and that air entry from other than the fan intake is being restricted.
Now the fact that they seem to be hard to take apart is not really an issue - for me that is as long as one takes care to know where the screws that hold it together are situated - some are not always that obvious and there have been times when I have almost wrecked a the back deck of the machine by missing a screw like that by trying to force it off - because it should come apart relatively easy any resistance tells you that there is more to come out.
Another tip is to take photos of the deconstruction at certain stages so that you can go back in reverse order and it virtually guarantees the correct order of parts going together as originally made.

Everything I read shows 85C as the max temp for a T5800.
Laptops are notoriously hot running to start, but some designs run hotter than others. Of course without a baseline temperature (the temp it ran at brand new out of the box) you are really limited. You could do a lot of work and only see a drop in 1-5 degrees C.

It is always good to run a couple of other temp programs, like Speedfan and HWMonitor (by the CPU-Z guys), just to see if there is a consensus. The sensors on these motherboards can be very accurate - or not. The really cheap ones are less than useless. If you get readings all over the place that could be the case.

SIW does hang for a while on some machines. Once it wouldn't load at all. Not sure why that is. But great prog.

Maybe if your friend used a USB-powered laptop cooler it would help. It would keep the machine above the bed covers, plus pump more air around.

Yep I think it might have been another thread but that is what I do on first dismantle - take pics going in making notes of the sometimes very hard to see screws

I use ReatTemp and Speccy for my temp programs.
If I see something crazy I look at the bios to verify.

If a laptop is 79C it's to hot in my opinion.

The clue is the temps you feel on the keyboard.

A system, Laptop or Desktop that is that old needs the thermal paste redone.
In a Laptop once it's apart I would install a new fan if I could find one.
It's to hard to get into some Laptops to leave a old fan installed.
Fans don't work better with age.

I'm very fond of Artic Silver 5.
Some instructions. Just pick the CPU.

I would also recommend a cool pad.

Greg, can you also boot into BIOS and check the temperatues given in there. I've seen a few instances of monitoring software giving some really dodgy readings lately, at least the BIOS temperature will give you a baseline rading at idle.

Unfortunately, a lot of laptops don't have temp readings in BIOS.

I never knew that, I never really mess with our laptop. Thanks for the info Bob.

Yea, most OEMs lock BIOS down so tight, there is really nothing useful you can do in BIOS.
