Angry CPU Reaches 49 C (120F)

Why??
It's an AMD Sempron 2800+ and i have a great cooler and fan on it.With the paste.

How can i lower its temperature?
Can i lower its speed it the BIOS?How can I do that safely(i.e. not burning it)

lower a cpu speed is not recomended,, how thin is the layer of thermal paste on the cpu and also what are your other temps

ya, thats your problem, its meant to be as thin as possible , its only to fill the microscopic gaps in the metal between the heatsink and cpu,, take the cpu and and clean the heatsink and cpu , reapply the paste to the sempron, use a credit card smooth it and make sure its very very thin,, then put the cpu back in,,
