Default Where do you check your CPU temp?

Computer is running hot.

I am running XP Home on a Dell Inspiron 8500 laptop.

Thanks

It's usually a file called ctemp under C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM. Good luck.

Or in your BIOS upon startup.

There is nothing in my System folder titled temp. I will check the bios, but that looked more like a test when I tried it.

I will do a search on Google and see if there is a free system diagnostics software or something that shows you your cpu temp, etc...

If anyone else has a suggestion with XP Home, please let me know.

Thanks

I use "MBM 5" (Motherboard Monitor).

I downloaded MBM5, but it needed to know what the motherboard was. I then downloaded PC Wizard to find out what the motherboard was, and it also had what I was looking for.

It says my processor is at 60' celsius and the meter is in the red. Is this really bad or just marginal?

Download CpuZ, it will give you information about everything inside your computer. Use that to get your motherboard type for MBM.

It depends on the CPU.

EDIT:

I now see you have a laptop. Disregard what I said, I was talking desktops.
