    Those with laptops probably have better information.
    Hello David,
    The temp indicated in your screen shot is for your Hard Disk. OP talks about the temperature of his CPU.

    it's a quad core i7 on a Kingston Hyper X SSD,
    It does not matter if you have a quad core running on SSD. If the the heatsink is not seated properly, you'll have the heat problem.

    For HP Laptop, I think the <ESC> will get you the fast boot screen, check if there's an option to allow you to enter BIOS. I have an MSI MB and it does have that option.

    I get the same temp if I view it in my BIOS.
    All I know is I have a good temp.
    If I had a bad temp my program would let me know.
    Or I could put my hand on the side of my tower & sense if it was too hot.
    Thanks for your input.

    Actually yeah it does matter that it's on a quad core i7 on a solid state drive because I was commenting on a guy that said something along the lines of too many programs running. I seriously doubt that

    Now if what you said about the heatsink is true then it doesnt matter bout the program's it's about the heatsink. Thank you for commenting. I am currently restoring my computer to factory settings on the original hard drive. This is only so I can send it to HP so they can fix this. I already did a restore to a system image from when I first updated to 8.1... and that was with no programs installed and I installed Speccy and it would still go in really hot. So if it still does it on the hard drive the computer came with after a factory reset it's definitely going back. Thanks guys
