Has anyone else run across this? I have a 2 yr old (more or less) Compaq 2100US laptop. For the past 6 months or so the fan seems to run almost constantly. Sometimes it seems to go into high gear. There is always warm air coming out of the vent at the side. It's gotten so bad that I always run with a targus dual fan "pad" underneath.
This may or may not be related ... but the battry seems to be shot. Or is that a question for a separate topic.
If anyone has any insight or advice I'd appreciate it. Thanks,
