I have an old PC running on windows XP which had CPU over voltage problem. I thought the problem was CPU fan so I decided to change it but the guy at the store said that the fan was working without problem. He said the problem was all the heat outside and PC running on XP which is too much for the CPU (Intel Pentium 4 - 3.2 GHz.
He suggested to put a fan near my PC while using and use a lighter OS like Seven. The problem is Windows Seven default resolution is 1920x1200 and things look too small on the screen. (My monitor model is LG T730PU if that matters). Other resolutions are either too big and ugly or either too small. The best resolution is 1024x768 which I'm using right now on my PC but it doesn't look great on Seven. Besides, Seven doesn't run as smooth as XP does. I hope you understood my problem. I just wanted to get your opinion on the subject. What can I do? Should I use Windows 8 or anything?
