Or will it simply blow up and kill me?
Roughly 4 year old Dell Inspiron running an Intel Celeron CPU. Apparently these are supposed to run at between 67-85C, but mine seems roasting hot all the time. It's been switched on for around 2 hours today and the fan's been whirring away almost the whole time trying to calm things down.
Typically, it's the machine I'm using for coursework - so it'll inevitably die at the worst possible moment!
All I have open at the moment is Chrome, Live Mail, Work, Excel and Itunes.
