I have an IBM Thinkpad G41 which has a Prescott Processor. On three separate occasions, the machine starts up and then sounds a long beep followed by two short beeps. This evidently signals a video display problem. I just got it back from a service center who replaced the system board. The problem they claim is that the machine is getting too hot and that is affecting the video card (which is really built on to the system board I am told). I have been running the computer for about 4 hours, and now it has failed again (same symptoms). While it was running, I installed the SmartFan utility to see how hot it was getting. This program reported that the CPU temp was 72 degrees celcius. That is a lot hotter than my other laptop (a thinkpad W500) which is showing 49 degrees celcius). Can anyone comfirm whether or not this Prescott processor at 72 degrees celcius is a problem? The fan seems to run close to high constantly, even when the computer isn't doing much. Really annoying because it is loud. I sure wish I could fix that!
