This implies that the reported temperature does have some association
with reality. What does the BIOS report? One possibility is that
one of the motherboard support chips has died.
If your CPU supports it, you could try using coretemp(4).
Getting back to your original question, my laptop used to suffer from
occasional spikes to 146°C in one zone (not CPU). My work-around was
to add the following to /etc/sysctl.conf:
# Increase tz2 allowable temperature so the occasional spikes to 146°C won't
# trigger a shutdown. Note that the temperature is specified in deci-kelvins
I'd keep a close eye in it in case the reported temperature really is
Please excuse any delays as the result of my ISP's inability to implement
an MTA that is either RFC2821-compliant or matches their claimed behaviour.
