Hi guys,
Ive got this hp dv4-1140go laptop i use in class sometimes for note, i also use it to download stuff overnight/all day. The problem with it is that it will overheat unless i can get it on some kind of cooling pad, but thats not always available to me. Is there any software that will let me underclock the core 2 dou (2.0 ghz) down? I really dont need all that power...as long as it can keep the computer on and downloading something or running word.

Right now the cpu is averaging 10% usage while download. Cpu-z records 2ghz so no speedstepping. Temp for this usage is around 75*C which is horrible =( once it hits 60% cpu or so itll only last a couple mins before its turned off to prevent overheating

I would suggest opening her up and cleaning out the dust... while you're in there, you could re-apply the thermal interface between the CPU and heatsink....

It is a mystery, happens with everything. But cleaning it out really helped. Im down to 50ish to 55 which is a lot better. I removed this massive clump of dust/crap/who knows what, that was blocking the air vent inside the laptop.
