    why does my computer's fan run constantly while it's charging the ipod?

    i've left my laptop on constantly but it doesn't get so hot. eventually it cools down if it does get hot.

    but when i have the ipod plugged in for charging, the fan is constantly running and the laptop doesn't cool down. i don't have any other programs open and no other processes eating up resources.

    i have a dell latitude laptop.

    Sounds like a USB software/driver problem. Have you tried looking for a driver/firmware update for USB? Any other USB devices that might put the system under strain you can test it with?

    not really...i've never had any driver issues per se...

    the usb just works whenever i reinstall windows...and i always have a usb mouse plugged in but i don't know how much "strain" it puts on the system
