Hi all,

I'm helping a friend to set up her 3-year old fujitsu amilo li 2727. It had overheating problems due to a dirty fan and an awfully bloated, cpu-hungry vista installation, and it was always turning off.

I did some cleaning and a format and although things are obviously better, I need someone who knows about these things to tell me if the situation sounds good:

The laptop's CPU is an Intel T2310. According to this page (http://ark.intel.com/products/32431/Intel-Pentium-Processor-T2310-(1M-Cache-1_46-GHz-533-MHz-FSB)), the Tjunction (I assume that's the maximum temperature it can handle) is 100 degrees C. Now, when the laptop is calm without many things going on, the temperature is around 65. I started running several programs simultaneously (probably way more than a normal every-day usage) on purpose and it reached 78-79 degrees.

Do you think those numbers are ok, or would you consider the laptop to be somewhat overheating?

Thanks in advance for your time..

according to the specs min/max temp is 0-100C so I would say you are safe
