I am dual booting Freespire (a distro of linux) and Windows 2000.
Freespire works great, never gets above 35 C according to my front temp gauge on my computer.
However as soon as I load 2000, the temp skyrockets to near the point of overheating. Just idling right now my comp is running at 46.1 C
The only reason I even have win installed on this machine is for my computer games that won't work under linux.
What could be causing this and what additional information is needed to remedy the problem.
