I have an ancient laptop (around 2006) that is dangerously overheating. I replaced the thermal paste with IC Diamond 7, but it is not getting any better. It is idling around 95 C (I use HW Monitor, and sometimes RealTemp, they give the same results. I've also tried using Arch Linux, and it was no better). It peaks at around 100 C when I'm running Flash, and sometimes HTML 5. I've also replaced the thermal paste on the iGPU, and that is running perfectly. I used the uncooked grain of rice method (I never spread). This is my main laptop (Now running W7) and I would really like to not cause permanent damage to it. Any advice?
