If it's so old, chances are pretty good that dust buildup and dry thermal paste are the culprits. If you have some canned air, try blowing out the dust.

Ι  recommend if you have the knowledge to take a look inside it to see if there is a lot of dust that has buildup through out time,

I would also recommend again if you have the neccesery knowledge to try and change the thermal paste or even look for anything suspicious on the cooler itself to see if there is anyting broken on it or if it spins at all.

One more thing is that when you reach this temperature try and  feel around the laptop for any hotter than average parts on the outter shell of the laptop, if you can't spot any, there is a pretty good chance you have a faulty temperature sensor giving those wrong readings

150f isn’t all that much in celcius.  100c is 250f.

 

like complaining about dihidrogenmonoxide (water)

Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

65c isn’t overheating though.  The 212 thing sounds right.  I didn’t remember the number so I guesstimated.

I’m noticing you’re saying the laptop is 6 years old?  Have you tried removing dust bunnies from the fan area?
