I agree with David it at the temps you mention are not really that high as mine are fairly similar.

As for seeing the fan running a Toshiba I have had these apart on occasions and you can see the fan spin, and even with the machine still assembled if you look underneath there is an inlet for air directly opposite the fan you can see it spinning there.

As Davis says any bearing that is going home is usually very noisy as the wear allows the blades to hit the fan containment, the air inlet grill, or the site base where it is attached down to.

It also usually smells like overheated car wheel bearings or if the fan blades are hitting the containment the distinctive smell of very hot plastic.

@ICit2lol,
Thanks for the added info with real-life laptop experience!

Another possibility to explain temp differences -
Were the high temps with (HD) High Definition video and lower temps are with (SD) Standard Definition?
Check your CPU usage while viewing video.

When i added an HD PVR it did not work - the MB internal graphics couldn't handle it...
I added a dedicated GPU and everything worked.

With a dedicated GPU (desktop) i can see a BIG difference in enabling/disabling "Hardware Acceleration" in media programs...
CPU use goes down, and GPU use goes up, but the GPU can better handle HD at lower temps with a lower total power consumption.

You might not have a "Hardware Acceleration" option with a laptop/IGP...
I'm not even sure it would help with an IGP...

Hum thank you David for that extra info too I had not given the GPU issue a thought

If you want to stress test it, run Prime95 and keep an eye on temps.

This should push it beyond anything you would do in real-world use, so you should see the max CPU temps and be able to feel if the fan is blowing more (hotter) air.

CPU Temps way to high please help
Hello, so randomly yesterday my cpu temps jumped to around 90c min and 90c max (way to high for what i have read) and that's at idle, My pc: Windows 7 64-bit CPU: Amd phenom(tm) II X4 955 Processor (4 CPUs), ~2.1GHz GFX: 2 Amd radeon 6850's running through crossfire
PC Custom Builds and Overclocking
Very high CPU usage, causing very high laptop CPU temps (90c idle)
This problem began yesterday. I noticed my CPU was at 90C constantly with very high CPU usage (>50%). I had no major programs running. I rebooted several times and the program persisted. 1. I went into safe mode and everything was normal. So this rules out hardware issues. 2. I reformatted and...

CPU temps seem very high =/
So I download hwmonitor to check my temps and my cpu's are at a constant 84-90 degrees celcius... which is around 190 degrees farenheit... Is this too high? It is an amd turion x2 64bit processor at 2100 mhz. Is there a program I can use to turn my fan speed up? I'm on a laptop

Odd processor temps
don't know if this is the right place to post-- there is no overclocking and cooling room like in vista forums :eek: can the operating system itself place a burden on the processor to cause temps to run higher? might sound like an odd question, and i really don't know how to phrase it any...
