You can't really do anything with a chip that old.

Temps in your screenshot look fine though? Maybe try changing the thermal paste, but other than that there's not much you can do.

My i5 2540M runs around 70c and that's with a GT525M on the same tiny heatsink.

The 2450M is 9 years old. Software CPU voltage control did not exist back then.

Your temperatures are fine. What sort of problem are you having? Intel CPUs can run reliably up to 100°C.

a laptop cooler would probably drop your temps by another 3-5'c during extended gaming periods. fresh thermal paste would also help but you have to because some older laptops used a type of thermal pad rather than a paste which leaves a small gap between the heatsink and the CPU die and results either in bad mounting pressure or both surfaces not making any contact at all. Ive come across a few old laptops like this.

If you can play anything on a 9 year old laptop, you are doing good. Buy an external keyboard so you do not damage your fingers. Your CPU will be fine.

Well, I have one like it, and the best thing you could do is mark the option "disable turbo", check the box above and in the drop-down menu choose "power saver", it significantly lowers the temperature, but the fps also drops, I hope I've helped
