    I have a problem with the CPU temperature on my system: After some CPU
    intensive tasks, the temperature does not revert to the one I had
    initially when I leave the PC idle. In fact the Temperature stays at the
    level it is at when the CPU activity is 100%.

    My system:

    Mobo: AK79G-1394 (Nforce-2)
    CPU: Xp-2500 Barton @1.82Ghz (no overclocking)
    1024MB RAM (2x512 MB DDR333 in dua channel config)
    80GB Seagate HDD (IDE)
    Zalman 300W Powe supply
    Saphire Radeon 9600 256MB Video card
    Windows XP pro

    When I reboot the pc, the problem goes away. If I just log-off and on, it
    is still there. I tried installing CPUidle t check the HLT activity on
    the CPU, but it does not help (shows CPU is 95% idle). I suspect the bios
    is the culprit here, but I do not know what to do next...

    Any idea what could be wrong?

    try different temp monitor programs eg speedfan, motherboard monitor,
    an indoor/outdoor thermometer to see if it's really hot or a program
