Re: CPU Overheating?
OK, I know its been a while, but my girlfriend has had to write 4-5 papers for school over the last month and has needed her computer on a regular basis. Now that she is done with that, we are ready to try and figure out what the problem is.
Again, we have had no problems running XP or any of the programs since re-installing a month ago. But before I install Vista, I want to make sure that the hardware is in tip top shape.
So, I downloaded the trial version of Everest (as you suggested), and I ran the system stability test, and her computer runs a lot hotter than mine while being stressed as well as when idle. While idle, her CPU temp runs about 55c while mine runs around 35c. When stressed for 1 minute (using the Everest System Stability Test) my CPU temp was about 40c and hers shot up to around 95c.
What should I do?
