in my laptop cooling never turns off. even if cpu`s temperature is 35C degrees, fan is still working (slow gear). before i had hp laptop with amd xp CPU and i could easly say which temperature my cpu was achiving, as i heard on which gear fan is and for instance around 45Cdegrees fan used to turn off. on my new Compaq, fan runs all the time at least on the slowest gear. I have xp sp2 and newest possible bios upgrade. Any clue ?
