Hello
I own a Lenovo Thinkpad T420s With the Intel Core I5 2520M, 6GB Ram, NVS4200M.
Speccy says it is running windows (idling) around 55 - 90 Celsius which I'm not sure is good. Does anyone know if these types of Temperatures are normal?

Thanks

Re-do the heatsink with new thermal paste, clean out the vents and fans. Make sure the fan is actually working. You will need to pretty much remove the motherboard to remove the heatsink I am pretty sure the connection is on the bottom of the motherboard in that model.
