Default Laptops overheating.

For the record, I'm running a Dell Inspiron 1150.

How hot can laptops get before they overheat?
What are some signs warning that they are going to overheat?

Default Re: Laptops overheating.

My laptop heats up to around 70 CPU, 80-90 GPU (Celsius). That's a lot hotter than a desktop, but it's OK, laptops get hot. A good thing to do is buy a cooling pad. I have one (and to make sure, I put a bunch of case fans behind it powered by a 9V transformer) and it cools my laptop pretty well.
