Default Major Overheating

I have an Acer Aspire 3620
-Intel Celeron M 370
Dothan 90nm Technology

-512 MB Single-Channel DDR2 @ 99MHz (3-3-3-8)

-Acer Garda-910 (U1)

-39.1GB Seagate ST9402112A ATA Device

My motherboard is running at 162 degrees Fahrenheit which is abnormally high. I have no idea what is causing it to run this high. I have tired around 10 different cooling pads, and have had no luck. The overheating is causing problems in video playback, audio playback, and even the smallest task in everyday computing.

Can anyone reply with some suggestions on how I can fix this issue or on what is causing this problem. All posts are greatly appreciated.

Default Re: Major Overheating

You need to immediately grab your nearest vacuum and attempt to suck any dust out of the fan port on the side of the laptop. This is usually one of the number one reasons for overheating on a laptop is that dust accumulates on the fan, causing it to slow, stop, or not transfer enough cool air to the components.

After doing this let us know the result when seated on a desk (not your lap) in terms of temperatures and we can troubleshoot more from there.
