SOURCE: I have a HP M1270N Media Center PC. The CPU Fan

The CPU fan is designed to run constantly to prevent the CPU from overheating. The speed depends on temperature condition of the room; slow in cold and fast in a hot room. However if you suspect that it runs too fast them try re-seating the CPU. WARNING: Re-seating should only be done if you are know how to do; don't experiment.

If it is running noisy, you can apply one or two drops of machine oil to the fan's spindle.

Other reasons include deposits of dust; use a blower to remove dust from the heat-sink.

To make sure you CPU is not in a critical state, log in the BIOS and in the hardware monitoring tab check the CPU temperature. It should be near 60 deg Celsius or 140 Fahrenheit.

One thing more, do not apply thermal grease in excess; its a conductive compound and can short the motherboard if it melts and deposits on the motherboard due to high CPU temperature.

No, find out which program is using all those resources (use Task Manager for that) and uninstall it.

Dell Inspiron1410 running 50% CPU usage with no other processes running in background. This after a nice repair install of Windows XP professional. High fan noise and heating up! Thanks


Hello Saman Tarik,

Task manager may say there are no other processes running but if you look in the next tab, "Services" you will find there are many things running.
The processor will run at a lower percentage when it is not busy.
As for running hot, I would suggest that the heat sink fins need cleaning out, I was surprised at how much fluff had accumulated in them, preventing a good air flow.
I have upgraded my processor from 1.5Ghz to 2.5Ghz which runs hotter so I bought a ZALMAN ZM-NC1500 USB and the hottest my CPU has reached is 41 degrees when both cores are running at 100%.
I hope the above information is of use to you.


Kind regards,

Ron.

DELL INSPIRON 1410 idle process takes high processor usage and heats up my pc


If running Windows OS - there could be several background processes running causing this higher CPU usage.
Hitting 'CTRL/ALT/DEL' will bring up the task manager (Win98/WinXP) or a Menu which has task manager (WinVista/Win7/Win8), you can then see what background programs are running.

Usage cpu 100%


The high CPU useage could also be the virus scanning program running and if your hard disk has a lot of files, data etc. it would take a lone time to complete.
Removing unwanted files and programs will make the virus scanning complete its task quicker.

You should also carry out hard disk maintenance at least onec a month Ie Disk Cleanup and Defrag to remove temporary unwanted files and Defrag will make your files contiguous so the hard disk does not need to work as hard and efficient.

Seems my toshiba satellite lap-top is over heating, how do I get to the fan to clean it? Model number: psafgu-02k001 serial; x7253530q


If your fan is running OK, then it probably doesn't need cleaning.

I have a satellite A350 and it pumps out a LOT of heat but that doesn't mean it's overheating. It's more likely your CPU usage is very high, which makes it very hot.

Turn on the CPU Meter in the Windows sidebar and close all applications. Watch the CPU usage (the larger front meter) for about 20-30 seconds. If the AVERAGE level when running no other applications is over 40% or spiking up at 90 or 100% then you are probably running too much junk in the background, or you have a virus.

I can not download form HDC-SD20 use by HD writer


I have same problem. I have Panasonic HDC-TM20 video camera. It came with HDWriter ae 1.0 software. I have ACER alptop, running XP. Everything was running fine for months, but now I cannot transfer from the video camera to the hard disk on my computer. It attempts to do it, but then it just does nothing for ages. CPU usage shoots up high. When I kill the application, it does die, but process continues so I need to re-boot mt laptop before I can load it again. Is these any one out there who has resolved this issue?

My Macbook fan keeps running


There may be high CPU usage by some program. It would be normal for the fan to run if the CPU usage is high. Check the Activity Monitor (found in utilities) to see if something odd is going on.

I had a problem where iPhoto quit working, and somehow was using 90%+ of the CPU. I could view the photos, but some operations did not work and the only way to exit was Force Quit. I had to remove and reload iPhoto.

CPU usage very high, mouse very slow man


hi,
you haven't mentioned whether your mouse started moving after you deleted the applications..
Anyway to lower your CPU usage, you can do the following...
1. Run 'msconfig' without the inverted comas in the run dialog box. ( start--> run )
2. Select the startup tab... you can disable all application at startup to load the system faster. or you can select the application that you thing is unnecessary. this needs a restart.
3. Next try to press Ctrl, Alt , Del at the ssame time to launch the task manager. First you will be seeing the application that is running. Go to the next tab that is the Processes tab. under this you will see all the processes that is running and utilsing how much resources . Below on the status bar of that window you will see the cpu usage... Now identify the processes that has the highest memory usage... right click and select end process tree. the process will be stopped. Remember not to end the explorer.exe process. Most resources is utilised by Anti-virus softwares like norton, also by web-browsing and graphics opertaions....

hope to get rated as fixya!!

regards
bzoy..
