    I just got my MBP 13" 2009, tossed Vista through bootcamp on it.

    When I boot into Vista, in the center of the base of the laptop it gets DAMN HOT. I'm talking like hot hells of fire. You will burn yourself if you leave your hand there.

    Is this normal? Is there some issue with bootcamp and vista? I feel like the computer is melting from the inside...:eek:

    Unfortunately it can get hot
    There are some threads around here about fan solutions under Windows

    You can use MRoogle to search for them

    It will but since you'll be in OS X, you can get a fan control to speed up the fans if you want.

    For some odd reason, the fans just speed up while Vista is at the login screen. Do you think that this is due to a lack of proper drivers, or just Windows? Because the computer actually does get hot.

    You can use smcfancontrol to set the fan speed before you reboot into Vista.

    Lack of proper drivers. I can also add that if you contact Apple regarding this heat issue in bootcamp, for example if you want to use CAD software in windows they take NO support at all. This is the official response from Apple support. This is why bootcamp is still not functional as I see it. Apple is not interested enough to take time and money programming good drivers for boot camp on their own hardware.
