In the last month or so, my Presario has developed an issue with the cooling fan. Normally, it generally is in one of these states: off, running low, or running high.
I have 2 profiles built on the laptop, one for home and one for work. The work profile - no issues at all. The home profile - the fan now either runs on low or high - it never shuts off. Even if I am logged in and switching between the users - on 'work' it shuts right off, and on 'home' it instantly starts back up.
I have shut down everything in the start menu that I am comfortable shutting down and nothing seems to touch it. If I do a ctrl-alt-del and go to processes, there is virtually nothing running. As I type, I have IE, Outlook and the task manager open, with those applications taking up no more than 5% of the processor, and yet the fan spins away.
As said laptop is a Compaq Presario V2000, running XP Pro SP2. Processor is an AMD Turion 64 Mobile, 1.59 GHz. Running 896 MB RAM.
