I have had my Presario 2100 for about 1.5 years now. It has a 2800+ processor in it. I have XP. My computer is now running always hot! even when i just run Word and leave it sitting there. I use a Targus coolpad (non-fan) and it still runs hot. Now, my battery only lasts for about 10 minutes. after 1.5 year??! is this normal? Im starting to wonder if AMD was a mistake, Compaq a mistake, or just plain notebook a mistake!

any ideas anyone before I sell this darned thing and buy a Sony with a Centrino!

I have heard posts of paths for your cooling getting blocked. make sure that your fan is not blocked eith excess debree, etc. about your processor getting hot so soon, I have no idea, unless you overclocked. that shoudl not happen at all. you might need to get a new fan. you could aslo have viruses. just thought i would throw you some suggestions. cheerz. kold.

Check your air intakes and fans, dust can build up inside your computer blocking air flow. Clean out the dust and you're computer should run cooler.
