Solved Samsung R540 CPU overheating

Specs: Win xp SP3, pentium 4 3ghz HT
Hi
I got Samsung R540-JA01AE and CPU is overheating (shutdown at 90C when running AIDA stability test) and i don't know what to do.

Things i have done
-Cleaning the vents
-Take apart the whole thing, cleaning the fan and replace thermal paste.

Idle CPU is sit 48C, the fan doesn't make any weird noise. I am thinking may be the fan is bad.
Please help i ran out of ideas.

There are BIOS settings on some rigs that throttle CPU fan speed to a percentage of max. This may be the case if Cool & Quiet or the Intel equivalent is enabled.

Also, running on AC power with some laptops allows the hybid graphics to kick in, which will cause more heat to be generated.

Is the notebook placed on a bed or somewhere where the air could be blocked ? Does it shutdown when u run lets say any normal application like a game for example ?
Did u check for any infections ?

No it is not placed on a bed and it only shutdown when running tasks that require CPU power like encoding. Normal apps runs fine without problem, no infections.

Thats a strange problem cpu is idling at 48C and going crazy at 90, could be a bad cooling system (fan) thats my guess right now
