Hi,

I'm experiencing a weird behavior with my Toshiba Satellite 1800-750
running Windows ME. When I plug my IP provider's USB plug into my
laptop USB port (it's an ADSL link), the CPU goes straight from a
balmy 40 degrees C to ... 55 degrees C! The fan runs continuously.
There is apparently no unusual process running in addition to the
usual ones (or so says Process Explorer). I ran Adaware and use AVG,
and everything looks fine. Does this ring a bell to anyone?

I noticed there is an upgrade for my BIOS on Toshiba's web site. Could
upgrading it fix the problem?

Thanks for any hint.

Dump the USB. The modem should have a standard ethernet port from which
you connect to either the ethernet (LAN) port on the laptop, or purchase
an ethernet PC-Card if there is no built-in port.

I'd try the upgrade, even though I doubt it'll help. Usb is cpu
intensive, use ethernet instead.

Thanks to all of you. I'll go for a PCMCIA Ethernet card.
