I have a Dell Inspiron 640m laptop running Windows XP Pro sp3 running on an Intel CPU (I just checked the Device Manager). Sometimes, the area where the fan is (and I assume the CPU) gets pretty hot. I wonder if it is overheating, and if I need to replace the fan. I had a desktop once that someone kit-bashed for me, and it had some sort of program for checking the CPU temperature. I wonder if there is something already onboard that I can check, or some sort of freeware or cheapware I can download to analyze and monitor this.
Thanks for any help.
