heating pproblem in HP laptops using Windows 8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • my dv4 and dv6 after being upgraded to win8 is getting around 10 degree C hotter even in idle mode than in win7. it is also visibly very hot.. never experinced such issue in win7 earlier. any suggestion? fan and everything is clean. there seems to be no proper answer in the forum.. I think its a software issue rather than hardware. probably win8 using too much gpu.. pleese comment.. otherwise i have to downgrade at least dv4 laptop.. it has been worst affected
