Toshiba Satellite that boils water

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have a 4 year old Toshiba Satellite with a dual core Pentium T3400 @2.16 GHz, two gigs of RAM, running Ubuntu Gnome 13.04 (though the distro seems irrelevant--every flavor of ubuntu I've tried has had this problem.) Also, Jupiter helps, but does not solve the problem. In short, the single cooling fan can't seem to be bothered to keep my hands from bursting into flames while I use this laptop. It has three speeds--off, low, and slightly less low. Only when the cpu reaches a critical temp of 110 C will it go into hyper-turtle mode, bringing the CPU down to a sweet, Arctic cool of 80 C.
