Help with laptop load and idle temps.

#1MaestroSSXPosted 6/4/2012 7:35:35 PM
Dell m xps m1530
CPU core 2 duo T6400m @2.0ghz
Nvidia 8600m
4 gigs ram.
windows vista
Owned for about 4 years

Problem: the CPU and gpu idle at around 61c, doing nothing at all, the CPU minimum usage is 50%. It has been like this sickness we got it, but only recently have I found that it could be a problem. Load temps... Playing morrowind maxed...94c scanning for spyware 80c with similar gpu temps. Fans run and are clean, external cooling mat.

I am at my wits end, help.

And I will never buy an xps again. Wouldn't be worth sending it in.
