AMD overclocking

I hooked up Comcast which I use for internet cable and home phone. I own a Dell computer which contains an AMD Quad core processor, and seems now to be overheating the processor and am looking for advice on how to underclock. without replacing the entire computer I am trying to calm it down with this new windows 7 I have loaded on. I also ave the windows 2008 advanced server I can instal in plave of windows 7 and am wondering if thus would actually be a more stable operating system for the computer?

    Well, first off, which quad core AMD CPU is it and what are the temps? Second, Windows 7 is just fine for stability and certainly wouldn't lower temps any.

    Also, why bring up hooking up the internet? That would have nothing to do with overheating.

    My guess is that if it IS overheating, it's dust and/or heatsink related.

    Not sure on that one, honestly. Dell owns Alienware, so that at least makes SOME sense, but I don't know past that.
