i installed speedfan just now. my computer started (couple of weeks ago) shutting down
all the time though i do not run too much stuff on it. i noticed
that the fan is running like crazy.
the reading looks like this:
cpu diode: 102C
temp2: 102C
HD0: 44C
temp1: 61C

In the tray is shows 102C. Anything that can be done to
reduce the temp?

Howdy and welcome to G2G:

When was the last time you opened the case and gave your system a good cleaning especially the CPU fan and heatsink??

How many cooling fans do you have installed and are they all working including the CPU fan??
