I own a Dell Inspiron 1545 Laptop - 4GB RAM - Pentium ® Dual-Core T4500 2.30Ghz. I Upgraded the CPU for a T9300 Intel Core 2 Duo Processor. However...
The laptop booted up fine after the install, but I immediately noticed that the fan would kick in every few minutes, and would then run constantly. After closing my applications/programs I opened the Task Manager and I could see the CPU was running at 50%. I did a reboot, and without opening any applications it was still idling at 50%. I have since put back in my old CPU, which idles at around 4%.
Is there anything that can be done so I can utilise the T9300 CPU without having the fan constantly running?
