you can always check task manager to see what is causing the cpu to run so much and get hot.
not sure what program you use to check temps, but speed fan is a very good one.

So I am running into the same issue with XP while running a Gateway
MD2601. Didn't care for Vista, so I purchased a new hard disc ( Seagate
Momentus 320gb 7,200 rpm ) and threw XP on, with some difficulty I might
add. In Vista, the CPU run @ 60 C while in XP, I run at about 80-85 C
without a load. That is one damn hot CPU
I was recommended
Speedswitch for XP, but I'd like to understand the root of this evil.
Vista, being the hog everyone says it is, should be killing the hardware
resources. Yet XP, second best to Win2kPro, is heating my CPU Hell
. I will try the AMD driver
posted here, but I'd like to know if
anyone knows WTF over. Thanx
