Welcome to TF! We try to be the best

Anyway, I think you have XP default drivers, not the correct drivers. If it came with Vista, it is very slim that they would have XP drivers. They don't make XP drivers anymore, It's a 7-year-old OS.

What is hot?

Sounds like the fan isn't getting regulated, and burning you up.

WHy did you downgrade? HP does not make XP driver for your laptop, so youre going to have to do ALOT of searching.

Good luck it has been done, but its a pain.

Start by finding an air-compressor and blowing all the dust out of your vent exhausts (any gas station should have it). If this doesn't help, then chances are that you have a hardware issue (contact HP if it's on warranty, problem is not unique and tons of people are having it). CQ60 are not the best with heat dissipation, so long term overheating might've damaged one of the motherboard components (most likely GPU).
