I have an amd mobile cpu, a duron 1.0 and a duron 1.1. Both cpus are exhibiting the same behavior. The heatsink gets so hot it burns me to touch it, and then after about 30 or so minutes of running it turns itself off. It will not turn back on until I either swap the cpu or let it sit for a while. The fan cuts in and out, so I'm guessing the motherboard doesn't think that the cpu is overheating and thereby not cutting the fan on enough. Since it's a laptop, how can I get extra cooling to the cpu?
No announcement yet.
