I have noticed some high temperatures while gaming .. CPU gets to 80-90 celsius , GPU around 85.
Is this normal or should I contact the reseller and send it in for service ?
Just played heroes of newerth for ~1hour , core temp says max was 82 on core1 , 86 on core2.
Edit : the laptop is a month old , so it can't be dust in the heatsinks.

It says BIOS Version/Date LENOVO 30CN62WW, 7/23/2010.
Should I update to the latest version ? And won't that void the warranty?
I'll get a cooling pad by the end of next week , but I think that will only get it 5-10 degrees lower.

I already tried speedfan , and it does not see any fans in the machine.Gpu-z says the fan speed of the gfx card is 70% , and if there is only one fan in the machine that might be the problem.Meanwhile I have sent an email to the reseller , asking if the temps are normal or not , hope they will reply soon.

I tried checking in safe mode , but I don't have access to the sensors there , probably some driver is not loaded .
Ran prime95 for around 5 mins and the leftside of the laptop got hot , so I guess the problem is there as well.
Meanwhile my reseller responded and said that there is nothing out of the ordinary , but I can call lenovo romania if i want and ask them.
I will probably call them tomorrow , and get a cooling pad by the end of the week , regardless of the temps being normal or not.
PS : The link you gave me had the i7 CPU , I believe that one is supposed to run a bit hotter than mine since it has 4 cores.
