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.
