My computer temperature gage is acting quite strange. Sometime it says my computer is 28 degrees and other times it says it's above 80 degrees. I'm guessing the gage is screwed up or maybe my computer is somehow overheating.
Are the different readings at different times or almost at the same time? It's possible that if the CPU had been working its ass off with something and you have bad cooling, it got super hot. That's still a really big temp jump though.
I have the aspire X-plorer case with the gage built in. It's at different times that the reading goes up to 80. Come to think of it... I was using a lot of programs at the time this happened. I guess I overworked the computer. It hasn't happened lately though.
