Hello there,

No this is normal for a fan to speed up or slow down. It all depends on what the CPU is doing. FOr example, if its doing lots of graphics (3D gaming etc) then it gets hotter and the fan speeds up to cool it.

If your worried you can use a heat monitor to check if things are ok. You have an intel motherboard?? If so go here to download a monitor: http://www.intel.com/design/motherbd/active.htm

If your unsure about the motherboard (or you dont know if you already have a heat monitor) then try this one: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=311

I hope this helps you, and if it does let me know by rating this answer.

Noisy fan


You need to replace the fan. Measure the fan you have now and buy one the same diameter. Then remove the old fan and put in the new fan.

Fan starts runnung fast and everything is frozen


Overheating. Try using canned air and blowing out vents. If you are comfortable with it, take the laptop apart and clean it out. If not, contact a local computer shop that can do it for you. If cleaning doesn't do it, the CPU heatsink will need reseated or the CPU will need replaced.

Processor slowing down?


On the system properties you will able to check your processor speed and your memory, it is possible that the other description is referring to your memory or Ram.

You can use other program like aida32 to check your computer spec or you can try the steps below.

To check the CPU speed, from the Start menu, select Run... , then enter msinfo32 .

You can also type DXDIAG then enter.

P4 ugrade required


Sadly you wont find any 1066Mhz FSB processors for the Socket 478. The best you can find is the 3.4Ghz with 800Mhz FSB. It might be cheaper and also better value for you to get a Socket 775 based motherboard and Core2 Duo processor. The value range E2160/2180 processors or the E4300/4400 processors have been tested to be even faster than the Socket 775 Pentium Dual 3.4Ghz and they also use less power.

An article on socket 478 for you http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/cpu/display/20040123103754.html
