Windows 7: CPU Temperature

CPU Temperature

Hey
I have a Acer Aspire 5720 laptop which for the last few months has been overheating - a lot, if I try and burn a DVD for example it's out halfway through. Just checked the temperature of the CPU now - im running Win 7 Pro x86 , Avast AV Free, Chrome, MSN and itunes. The temp changes constantly but its usually above 70 degrees - that can't be normal .. can it?

^^ That's with a USB Cooling thingy underneath but to be fair its not very trustworthy, its noisy and seems to decide itself whether or not it wants to turn on. also HDD is 43 degrees?
Any help appreciated thanks

hi simpod, make sure the air and fan vents are not blocked, if possible use a can of compressed air to blow into the vents and remove any accumalated dust ,do a google search for "speedfan" and install that it will help to control the temps a bit better

What are your GPU temps? I'm thinking your fans are blocked at the exhaust of your laptop which makes the air movement provided by the cooling pad inefficient at best.

70 is high for a CPU. As pebbly said, make sure you have good ventilation.

lol im not sure about the GPU but im assuming that would come under ACPI? If so - again around 70 degrees.
If you mean that dust is blocking it, I just cleaned out the fans about a couple of months ago because of this problem (although it wasn't as bad at the time - its just been getting worse) and tbh there wasn't much to be cleaned installing speedfan now
