For the past few months my laptop has been running hot, and the fan has been making an awful ruckus. I took it all apart a month or so ago, and cleaned it all out; it seemed to help for a couple days, but the ruckus came again, and won't stop. I just put this fan in a year ago, so it shouldn't be bad.... not yet!!!?? Also, often, something gets running that hogs 100% of my cpu, slowing the puter down to a stalling crawl. Ugh!

Can someone help me? Please... Can't do my business without it running... HELP

Thanks, in advance for any help.

It is a:
Compaq Presario v5000 laptop
Intel® Celeron® M CPU 410 @ 1.46GHz
Maximum Clock 1460 MHz
Current Clock 1460 MHz
Voltage 3.3 V

Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit

These are my running processes right now:

Hi, Ysalys. Welcome to Geeks2Go!!

I'm afraid I don't know a whole lot about what process ought to be running or not. Do you know which process or application hogs all your processing power? That can help to figure out the cause of that. Just plug "[whatever process] cpu 100" into Google, and you'll get tons of results.

When you replaced the fan, did you replace the thermal paste? If it's old or improperly applied, that could be causing some issues with the CPU cooling.

One thing I do know is that you don't want your CPU to exceed 60 by too much (or at all), which yours is clearly doing. Something is definitely wrong it's just a matter of figuring out what.

::edit::

Also, what method are you using to measure the CPU temperature?

Thank you for the reply, and the welcome! :D I found that "panda cloud" was the offender that was hogging my cpu so I disabled it. Too bad; it's supposed to be a good, light antivirus prog.

As far as the thermal paste, yeah, I applied some, but maybe it wasn't good enough paste. It came with the fan when I ordered it. Maybe I need to get some silver paste.... but the noise the fan is making is also of concern.
