RF1 Asus tablet heats up and makes noises on Windows 7

I dual boot windows 7 and vista on my rf1 asus tablet, but when ever i use windows7 for a while my tablet heats up and starts going wild. On windows vista however it runs ok. (just a bit slow)

Any ways i can fix this or does anyone know an email of microsoft ? I can hear the laptop from another room, thats how loud it is when running on 7+It smells like heat.

I think ill just go back to xp =(

Hello The Lah...

Nice one about the email of M$. They don't actually have this kind of support and they won't answer back I guess.

A few things you could try to fix this though, would be try Windows Update and see if it finds any new drivers for your tablet, or to manually download the correct chipset driver for your model from ASUS. (Use the Vista drivers, since there are no Windows 7 drivers yet and the Vista ones are compatible in most cases).

Chipset download link for R1F:

Vista Ult 64bit - Windows 7 Ult 7264 64bit

I wonder if the driver isn't controlling the cooling as it's supposed too.
That's a good one to tell Asus and MS about, just use the Send Feedback link on any W7 page to tell MS about this, and make a detailed reprt to Asus support also.

Since it works on Vista but not W7, I would bet that the fan control is not working properly in the chipset driver on W7.

The feedback is on the top right of any window on seven, and on the desktop. Type up a lovely little report about it (lol) and let them know. Look on Asus' site to find their contact info. They have pretty good support, so you should be able to find something. What is wrong with your desktop? ~Lordbob
