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

I also didn't know they locked down bios that much in a laptop. Reading temps seems pretty basic to me.
I can understand manufactures don't want overclocking because of the temp problem.

Actually all good advice and for a last tip run the HW Info and it will detail that CPU in more depth than you can imagine - if you are looking at details that is.
Using HW Info
PART A:
You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download < download the right bit version and close the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power section where you will see what the volts are doing see my pic. In my pic the section with VBATT is a dead give away you are in the section for the rail voltages.
Now the voltage on the different rails have to be within 5% =+/- of what is required or the machine will not work properly if at all.
See this for the rail voltage info
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/power-supply-specifications-atx-reference,3061.html (Section 2.)
The original right hand window shows the machine running and is handy for that but for looking at the components in some detail close it and use the main left hand side panel
FOR OTHER COMPONENTS
PART B:
Open each small square with + in it on the section the components are in and then click on the individual component/s (it will highlight in blue) - in the right hand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds and other essential info that particular device. See pic for example.
Use PART B:

The Arctic Silver personally is my choice and I also use the cleaning kit form that brand too Arctic Silver Incorporated - ArctiClean it cleans and prepares the surfaces.

Yeah, my wife's laptop is so bad you can practically only change the time and boot order!
They just don't want to be bothered with customers causing warranty problems playing with BIOS settings.

I understand them not wanting you to be able to overclock it or things like that. But I believe there is no excuse for not being able to read temps and voltages and things such as that. That's going a little too far.

Yep agree totally mate what the heck is the good of a BIOS that is not on long enough to set things up?

I think this applies mostly to consumer grade products. When you get up into the more expensive "gaming" laptops and business machines you will see more settings, but none I've seen have ever come close to what you see on a desktop.

I know what you are saying TV and you are right. But I've never been a big fan of Laptops. I have always thought that a Gaming Laptop was an oxymoron. Gaming Laptop

I know! Right? Gaming laptop = monogamous prostitute!
I also have no love for the things. Everyone around me has one and it falls to me to maintain them (6 now?) so I am intimately aware of their annoying limitations.
They are quite handy to have when traveling though.
