My 3 year old laptop functions well (touch wood) but the cooling fan has started running without stopping almost non stop.
I am not running any software apart from Firefox and Outlook Express - is this anything sisnister>
Outside air temp is 20 deg C
Thanks

Could be an accumulation of dust/fluff. Needs a clean?

Probably A big accumalation of dust on your heat sink, get it sorted quickly or your computer will crash, overheating, this happened to me
