And what BIOS version?
WRITES "Added enhancement for thermal control."
While the industry should be ashamed that owners have to figure all this out it is up to you to keep up with this and the other drivers you would have to install AFTER the Windows OS. NONE of these drivers are automatic and I don't see the install plan in your post.
Again, this is far from automatic and after decades you wonder why it is not automatic.
My vostro 1400 is causing a few problems. I had XP installed on it but it got painfully slow so I decided to do a clean install of windows 7. (hasn't helped much as it still seems to be running quite slowly).
Now I have the problem that the laptop is getting extremely hot underneath. It then keeps turning itself off. I can only assume this is because it gets too hot but it gives me no warning so I keep losing work!
Has anyone else had this problem or can anyone offer any advice as how to fix this?
