    Screenshot (4).png Machine is a laptop with amd A8 with . Was downloading at the rate of 0.8-1 MBPS in JDownloader from MEGA. About 20-25 CPU Usage with spikes upto 60%. No Heavy work. Was lying on a flat surface. Not my laptop. Recommended this for someone on a tight budget and now feel very bad about it. Any ideas?

    @R29K No. It has to be correct. I mean, I know the temperature when I keep my hand on the vent. Any way, here you go...... Screenshot (7).png Why it's heating that much????? And why isn't it shutting down. No driver, BIOS updates available.

    What is the exact laptop brand ?
    Has to be sensor issue, the temps can't be right.

    That CPUs max temp is around the mid 70c's

    If it was running at 132c it would have killed it

    Bad sensor is my guess, but you could always check there is no fluff / dust build up stopping the airflow / fan spinning

    I think its a faulty sensor or an reading, if its really hot to the touch then return it ans and for a replacement.

    I've never seen temps like that. Your CPU is like a zombie. It should be dead, but somehow it's not.
    Assuming it's not a glitch (BIOS, sensor) or dust problem, I would first check the BIOS settings and then suspect some mishap. Like no thermal grease used on CPU, overvoltage, etc.

    That CPU is seriously hot. And not in the good way.

    132C!!!. Wow while you are getting that temp and your system has not blown up, fry some eggs.
    Seriously most likely some problem with measurements. Have you tried flashback BIOS if you have updated. Try different BIOS versions.
    Also check with coretemp and HWmonitor. Both are freeware.

    132C would definitely have blown up over a short period of time.

    Actualy it went upto 134c. :( I know it is bad temperature. An @Mr Jinje, No I said it is a brand new one. And I have the dust removal feature in battery management software of lenovo and when i run it, it turns the fan to ultra high seed and so i use it cool it down when it reaches too high even though there is no dust. No BIOS update according to lenovo's site. I'll check the bios for voltage problems.

    @ MrMagic I would shut it down if it reached that temperature. Here idiots in the dorm don't understand the seriousness just like the owner. i'm really beating myself up for not not having gone for an intel based one :(. I can abuse it as long as i want and it would never reach beyond 70c. AMD sucks!!!!

    Have you turned off cpu throttling, set power config to "performance" or does the cpu ever slow down below 2.1ghz?

    @R29k Downloading now...... Yes I have set the plan to high performance. But, if i remember correctly, there is some sort of hard-coded trigger that immediately shuts down the machine as soon as it crosses a particular temperature. My intel laptop does it when I keep it on the bed and play HD videos for a long time. But this laptop doesn't. Can the high performance plan in anyway prevent the machine from shutting down?
