Hi, it's been awhile since Ive been in this forum for help, but it seems that my laptop is overheating during startup. The CPU goes as high from 80-100 during normal startup for about 3 minutes, causing my laptop to feel extremely hot , and forces it to make unusual fan noises at the same time. Does anyone know the solution to this? Ive tried googling and the only results I found was to disable windows update from updating automatically, but the problem still occurs. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

EDIT: I am running on a Windows Vista.

Try blowing out all of your vents with compressed air. A lot of times laptop heatsinks get clogged and this causes the processor to run hotter. If your heat sink is TOO clogged, compressed air won't help (some laptop makers make it easy to get to the heatsink for this reason).

80-100 what? Celsius?
What do you measure it with?
