Hey Techs. Yet another problem and I've done most of what I can to straighten it out. I am running a Emachine with 1 gig ram, windows home xp. Anytime I go onto a website or run a program, My fans start to run real hard and loud. I have vacuumed the machine out and also blew out with air...it quieted a bit, but not enough to my liking. I have defragged, disk-checked and even installed a core tuner. I see that system idle process is running about 95%...which seems a lot to me. Other processes like avast and other software is running very low. I already re-formatted and re-installed xp about 3 months ago...so I don't really want to do that again. System is clean as I have run MBAM and superantispyware and also my avast regular scans and a boot time scan and found nothing. I notice that my system is only running about 896 mb of ram. Is it time for more ram or should I be looking elsewhere? I've installed no programs that are memory hogs that I know of. I have the regular tools like Speccy, Secunia PSI, Ashampoo core tuner and Ashampoo HDD control.(that one just tells me the state,health and temp of my HD. There are more functions but I don't use them) Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in Advance.
Funny thing about "The Blues", You can listen to them when your Happy, Sad, Angry, or just plain Blah. It's a non discriminating mood music.
