On another note, my laptop gets extremely hot, I've been using HWmonitor to check the temperatures and my CPU has hit a max of 96 celcius. Currently I'm running Google chrome with 1 tab open and I have Windows Live Messenger running too and both cores of the CPU are reading at 70 celcius. I've read up about this and once it reaches a certain temperature the CPU throttles it's self to prevent further damage, although I'm thankful this happens, it renders my laptop practically unusable.

Has anyone else experienced any of this before and is there anything I can do about it?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Josh & welcome

Some 'housework ' questions for you first.

*Have you examined Task Manager - Processes to see what is running?

*Do you defrag - run check disc - disk clean up - on a regular basis?

*Have you checked in Device Manager to see the state of your drivers?


* Is your Flash Player the current version?
etc.
