This is my first post, hoping my issue gets resolved :)
Mine is a HP pavilion DV2416US notebook, came up with vista home premium installed in it. As I was having problems with vista, I have removed vista and installed Win XP professional. With the help of HP online technicians, I have downloaded all the necessary drivers from "HP.com" and installed them in my computer. From the day 1of the XP installation, Computer is getting heated even for normal CPU operations like (5 % CPU usage). Within an hour or two its temperature reaching a point where we can make an omelet on that. At least once in a day its getting shutdown due to overheat.
During installation itself....My computer shutdown Couple of times. For that I had to cool down for 2 hours, then i was able to install win XP.
Initially I thought its the problem with drivers, so with the help of HP experts I have changed the BIOS settings to factory default settings and updated the drivers again. Still NO USE of this.
1. Fan is working fine, I could see its running all the time.
2. ventilating holes at the bottom are not covered, I tested by keeping the notebook on the flat table.
3. there is no dust that obstruct the holes (as this is 3 month old computer), and even cleaned the holes with small vacuum cleaner
4. there should not be any hardware problem, as it was fine when there is Vista in it.
Sorry to make the post so elaborative, but my idea behind this is to give the details without any ambiguities.
turion64x2. 1.8ghz (dont think turion gets heated as it is AMD processor, if u speak technically, turion64 is 31w compared to core 2 duo 35w)
nvidia geforce go 6150
Thanks In Advance for your help
