Hi Freeen, Yes indeed 68c to75c is in the range of frying the cpu and needs to be corrected immediately. Several thing could cause this problem. 1. The inside of the computer builds up with dust. Pop the cover off and look, if you see alot of dust built up on the cpu heat sink (small square of aluminum fins on the mother board) buy a can of Canned air (walmart $4-$5) and blow all the dust out. 2. the cpu fan could have quit working( replacements can be found online or at Radio Shack) 3. The least likely, the computer got a bump, drop, kick, fall, that has jarred lose the heat sink on top of the cpu (Radio Shack has heat sink compound, Quick Silver I believe is the name, and don't buy the cheap $3 tube, spring for the $12 tube, it is worth it if you need to heat sink your cpu) 4. The one you can do nothing about is that the cpu has an internal short in which case you could replace the cpu, which involves the above steps 1, 2, and 3 for safe measure. Hope this helps
