Question about Computers & Internet
I know the computer fan constantly runs, i have a gateway and it all of a sudden started running at its highest speed constantly. Before it would change speeds as it needed but now it just constantly runs fast. Is this cause for concern? I also have a gateway GT5040 dual processor, the fan runs on high all the time, my computer is really acting up in that screens take forever to load, google says it is not responding then it is, it is just not working right, I made the mistake some months ago and upgraded??? from my computers orginal xp to windows vista home premium edition, nothing has really been right since, I want to get vista off and xp back on but have been told this may be impossble. HELP
The thermo switch determine how high and how long the fan need to run to obtain the proper temperature, it will be a consern if the fan doesn't run.
as far as the upgrade of your machine. do you have enough RAM (2GB minimum) and how is the CPU?(1.6GHz or better) can the CPU handle the operating system. Since you didn't mention that, and by reading what you say, I believe the machine is not able to handle the Vista, that is why the fan is running at high speed and non-stop. The CPU is getting hot, and the power supply is pulling lots power.
Vista loading takes approximately 1-2 minutes, dependent on how many applications you have installed and what you have on the desktop.
roll back to XP from Vista is no possible, the only way is to reformat and reinstall XP.
