Must have ran something really big?
My laptop did not use to get hot when new, then it got hot because of all the dust in it and i started cleaning it, now even cleaned it gets very hot, especially the touchpad. It never been so hot.
I am already monitoring a maximum temperature of 73 celsius and that is after running two high quality videos on youtube. It is prety empty now so i can not test it with some programs but i bet it would easily get to 90+
I just checked the thermal grease and as i suspected, it is dried out on the processor. There is still alot of it on ATI chip. It just got dried up in the center so i moved it a litlle bit to cover everything up. Gonna buy and apply some thermal grease to the CPU later this week.
