Cpu fan slowdown when clicking on screen?
Hey all. I am trying to get a pc up and running, and frought with multiple problems. The root I believe could be a cooling issue. Whenever I click on something on my desktop, the start menu, open a window, anything slightly taxing, the cpu fan slows down for an instant, then speeds right back up again. This happens every time, it's most consistent.
System specs: Windows XP Pro SP2, Gigabyte MB, P4 3.0 Ghz socket 278 (I believe), 1 gb ram. The heat sink and fan are stock that came with the cpu, probably a year old at this point. thanks!
