This is on my new/used hp nc8230 laptop, latest FF, XP Pro sp2. My desktop with Asus board has a nice little utility that monitors temps, RAM usage, fan speeds, etc. I'm sure there's something comparable for a laptop? Thanks! OH - how do I get that to start automatically when I boot and make it show a small icon in that small tray at the very bottom right of the screen? (What's that "tray" called?) FWIK I have to go into msconfig, but then what (IF that's the right place to go).
