Windows 7: Laptop overheats on 64-bit, NOT on 32-bit though

Maybe it has something to do with dust inside the laptop (Had the same problem with my laptop a half year ago.) this can repaired by using compressed air.

Nah, running 32-bit right now, no heat problems. Can run crysis all on medium/High doing benchmarks over a hour without it even getting hot (The fan might start once or twice, but it never gets hot)

I guess Ill try Windows 7 64-bit again, this time Dual-Boot. I almost fried my hardware last time so ill make sure to try and get drivers on AMD's website (For graphic card AND CPU)
Forgot to mention, I had Downloaded Drivers for "ATI Radeon 3100 HD"
Turns out, I have "ATI radeon 3100"
Whats the difference? IDK. But I read this COULD have been a problem.
BIOS update in windows failed, but laptop still works. I decided to burn to CD and boot of that. 100% successful
Heres just a bit of info on whats new. IDK what version I had before, but now I have the latest version from Toshiba.

o Fixed: PCIE card can not be detected after an S3 resume.
o Disabled an unused clock to reduce power consumption.
o Fixed: When the system is booted to a PXE-Linux Server, file downloads
take a longer time.

o Added: Additional BIOS interface for the flash utility.

Version 1.20 2008-07-19
o Updated the SB CIM-X code to V3.1.3.
o undefined

o Added a QL-60 CPU warm boot workaround to fix a hang issue.
o Added the LP154WX4-TLD2 brightness table.
o Corrected: The Internal keyboard repeat speed can not be changed.

Anyways, I hope it works!

Maybe, just maybe, it WAS the ATI radeon 3100 HD drivers.
Thought there are no drivers for "ATI radeon 3100" Except the ones from Windows updates.

BTW, I cant get speefan to control my fans. Dont know why, never could get it to work.

You can also try a laptop cooling fan such as this:
[ame="http://www.amazon.com/Vantec-LapCool-LPC-401-Silent-Notebook/dp/B000AGK8NI"]Amazon.com: Vantec LapCool 3 LPC-401 Dual Silent Fans Notebook Cooler (Black): Electronics[/ame]

They aren't expensive and can make a big difference in performance

Yes, but my point is is that My system is 100% fine in 32-bit, NO over-heats at ALL but in 64-bit it overheats after 10 minutes of youtube...

Will re-flashing the BIOS maybe make the fans work again?
Pretty sure the Sensors dont work, because on 32-bit the fans sometimes go off but on 64-bit the only time they ever start working is when the Laptop hits 190F (Prob going to melt the AMD64 CHIP)
AnyWayz, thx for the help guys.
Guess its toshiba's problem.
Anyone eles have this problem with a Toshiba laptop (AMD Athlon 64)?

EDIT: Doing some research, seems LOTS of people are having this problem. One guy had a problem on his MAC with an intel Core 2 duo.
