Is there any kind of software that anyone knows of to run your laptop fan faster? I have a cooling pad for it, but it's bulky to take to Wifi spots.

My Speedfan numbers after an hour or 2:

GPU 84
HD0 61
Temp 1: 33
Temp 2: 36
Core 74

At one point my GPU was up to 100

It would help to know what kind of laptop this is. There are several programs out there that can control the fan on laptops, but not knowing what you have, I can't research the right application for you to use. There isn't an app that I know of that will "speed up" your fan though. And, its more likely you're seeing these high temps because the laptop is running "full speed" all the time. If you go to power options, you should be able to set the laptop to run with "dynamic switching" while on both battery and AC. This will help to minimize battery usage, and also help bring down the temperature.

Laptop specs please.

I will also add, there may be a build up of dust and fluff inside preventing a good air flow. Laptops are notoriously difficult to take apart to clean out though, so I will only recommend looking into the outside vents on the edge for any clogging with dust.
Only disassemble to clean, if you are fully confident you can do it without causing damage.
Also remember to protect your machine from static by keeping contact with the chassis while it is open.
