Windows 7: Processor slowed down in Windows 7

Processor slowed down in Windows 7

Hi everybody,

I was using windows XP in my notebook HP nc6400 and I changed to windows 7 few days ago.

There is a very annoying problem when i using windows 7

In the first few minutes after i start the windows, it runs perfectly.

But, about 10 minutes later, it started to slow down in everything.

browsing website, opening file explorer, even turning on the task manager.

I made few tests to find out what the problem is and finally i can make a conclusion:

The CPU is over heated after 10 minutes of using the notebook
and windows 7 slows down the processor automatically.


When I am using windows XP, no matter how high the temperature of my CPU is, its never slow down the processor but now it happens in windows 7!!

I have tried to change the power setting in control panel (system cooling policy) but nothing gonna be changed.

I am so annoying by this problem because i just cannot use my notebook after i started the windows 10 minutes after...

Could somebody told me the way to stop the automatically cooling policy.
I am not caring about the over heat problem because my notebook going well even if it is overheated in windows XP.

Thanks a lot!!

Why is your computer overheating? Fix that!
Get a can of compressed air and clean out the vents.

You better care unless you want to buy a new computer.

Because this is the notebook, I cannot open the case of it to clean....( strange shape of screw all over the case....)

I have bought an expensive cooling pad.
but the CPU temperature were always equal to 95 degree even if i am using it...

Windows 7 slowed to a crawl
My system has slowed to a crawl (and rebooting makes no difference). Every mouse click takes anything between 10 and 60 seconds to get a response and most programmes state 'not responding'. When I boot into Safe Mode it's fine, so I'm guessing it's not a hardware problem. I tried rolling back...
