Hi
so i installed XP on this machine which came with Vista preinstalled (it has original bios) and downloaded the Toshiba drivers, but the cpu temp is always 50+ degrees when idle and the fan never stops. however, it stops at 46 in Vista so i lowered the temp with CPU Eat 'n' Cool but the fan is still blowing no matter what. what should i do/wnload? please help. Thanks!

Re: Toshiba A200/XP - fan always on

welcome to tsf, first off i would recommend trying your laptop in a cooler room. next, try to take the fan out, i had a similar problem until i poked around in there and my fan started working again(it was supposedly broken). believe me a fan on all the time is better than a non working fan, my temp went up to 90c!!! that is NOT good. anyway, try what i said ang get back to us

Re: Toshiba A200/XP - fan always on

thanks for your reply! i suppose the fan's not broken, it works ok under Vista. last time i loaded XP with the laptop completely cooled down, the fan even went off several times in the beginning. i'm afraid i can't try it in a cool room, it's now 30°C where i live so no cold rooms... just a church lol.. maybe i should update the bios but i've read somewhere it's better to keep the Vista version if i want to run Vista...

Re: Toshiba A200/XP - fan always on

since your laptop is specifically designed for vista, it's only natural your parts work right in vista. but....they SHOULD work for xp, but i'm guessing not as easily lol. 55c is about my laptop temp, nothing wrong with that, can you post you laptop specs? P.S. good thing you go to church ;)
