I have a Sony Vaio PCG-GRT170. It came with a Pentium 4 2.8 GHz Desktop CPU. Sounded great when
I bought it, but I am having real problems with heat. It overheats ALL THE TIME. I mean, I can't even
use WinAmp 5 without it overheating.
I have installed hMonitor to monitor temperature; as I type this -- running only FireFox -- the CPU temp
is 181 degrees. Ridiculous.
Anyway, I'm thinking that a new CPU might solve my problems. My question is, can I install a Pentium M
on the motherboard? Or do you have to have a special Intel chipset to install a mobile CPU?
