Hello,
i have a dell latitude e5500 it's old it has a core 2 duo p8600 in intel website it says that the cpu temperature can go upto 105 celesius degree but it doesn't go higher than 65 degree then it shuts down from overheating i remember a while ago it used to get higher temps so is that normal? should i change the thermal paste?

Yes, check the thermal paste. And check the operation of the CPU cooler fans.

Just because it is at 65C when you are checking doesn't mean it isn't hitting 105C very quickly and shutting down when it starts to do more then show you the desktop.
