    On mine, when you double click to load the program, once it is loaded, you "minimize" it and it goes in my tray and then loads on my screen like you see here:

    Hey Jack, do those temperatures show up while playing games in full screen mode? I've tried Everest Ultimate edition with a temperature display much like that, but the temperatures only show up in windowed games.

    Yep, unless you close the program, it stays in view no matter what your running. You can change the color of it too. I really like this program.

    What settings do you have enabled to have the temperatures show on the desktop? I just downloaded it and can't figure this out.

    Maximize it instead of minimizing it and it will open on your desktop, then there are several tabs with different settings to choose. When done, minimize it and it goes in the tray and in the corner, (or where ever you want it).

    Alright, I got it to work but I still can't get that window to show in Call of Duty 4. If I play my other game, Live For Speed, I can get that graph to show as I usually play that in windowed mode. Ah well, I guess I can't monitor temperatures when playing Call of Duty 4.

    You should always give the make & specs of your notebook when asking questions. ;)

    Seems a little warm for a non dedicated gpu notebook.
    But, it is not too hot. Mine runs a bit hotter.
    I wouldn't worry about it... lets see what others say.

    Maybe it is on second thought... I think the GS has 128 dedicated memory and the GT has 256 dedicated memory.

    Sorry for the mistake. :eek:
