Question: After installing and playing Minecraft, I shut the program down along with the computer. Afterwards, whenever I use my PC for anything the fan will run nonstop! This intern depletes my battery life significantly. What happened? Can THIS BE FIXED?!?!?!

ok, i did everything that you said: I dowloaded and installed the latest Intel chipset driver, I dowloaded and installed the latest Essential System Updates, and I uninstalled the ATI/AMD graphics. But with in the process of unistalling the ATI/AMD graphics, I was undable to complete the steps after the Installshield Wizard uninstalled the AMD Catalyst Install Manager and system start up.
What should I do? the fan still runs nonstop.
