I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Question: Tecra A8 Heats Up

After approx one hour working, the fan of my 4GB Tecra A8 (PTA83E) rotates higher and my notebook gets very hot, which decreases my performance.
Since my battery is damaged for one year, I only work connected to power. I though that it could be because of dirty fan and so tried to disassemble the under cover of my notebook, but I didn't succeed.

Could be there any other reason, why my notebook will be heated up?
Or if it may be because of fan, could you please send me a detailed doc about disassembling the notebook and cleaning the fan.

Thank You.

Answer:Tecra A8 Heats Up

Hi

Notebook?s temperature can increase due to different reasons;
In most cases the air cannot circulate properly due to dust and debris.
I always clean my cooling vents using compressed air spray. This helps to get rid of dust.

If the notebook is older, then a replacement of thermal grease which is placed between cooling module and CPU might be helpful. Old thermal grease could dry out and does not drain out the heat dissipation?

But this is a job for a notebook service technician?

Hello!Purchased this notebook 6 months ago.All this time everything was perfect: good perfomance and long battery life!But a few days ago, CPU began to heat up strongly and cooling fan is now working all the time when notebook is turned on, even there is no CPU load. Temperature is 61-63 degrees, Celsius. When CPU is loaded, temperature increases to 65-66 deg., C.I opened back panel and inspected cooling system. No dust or other airflow obstacles were found. Heat pipe works well and brings heat to radiator very well.Battery life is now dropped significately. Please help to solve the problem.

Hi there.  Around 5 months into owning my  Lenovo Yoga 2 2in1 11634 TouchScreen Laptop Intel Core i5 4GB Memory 128GB Solid State Drive SilverSKU: 5951002 it began shutting down due to overheating.   Level = Critical, Source = Kernel-Power, Event ID = 41, Task Category = 63 I know that error code can be any of a number of issues, but it's overheating.  Depends on a variety of factors, but it's not unusual for the computer to shut down after an hour of watching video.  Since it is a yoga, I run the computer standing up to better allow for dissipation of heat.  This helps some, but not enough.   Presumably a 700 dollar machine should be able to watch video for an hour without crashing.  I have purchased a lemon.  It is under warranty.  Is lenovo going to fix this?  I do not have the time to navigate their labryinthian "contact us" page. Good day.

Answer:yoga 2 11 over heats

You will have to call Lenovo, explain them the problem and send your laptop in for a fix.

My PC really heats up in about 30-50min.
I have no idea why , all the fans are working and im not running anything that's way out of my specs.
i downloaded a fan control program and i can see that the 2 CPU cores are the ones that heat up the most.
the GPU , System , MB parts are at 30-45 * C but the 2 CPU cores are at 50-70 * C after about 40 min.
I thought it was wool clogging up my fans and suffocating my PC so i cleaned it up a little , it still heats up.
The only way i can stop it from overheating is if i use my old room fan and strap it to the side of the PC but that wastes too much electricity

Question: Laptop Over heats

Hi, I am having problems with my laptop overheating when trying to do things on my computer. I dont understand why its overheating, its a fairly new Dell Inspiron 1150.
It never used to overheat when i first got it, I could run lots of programs and it would be fine. Now it overheats with more than a couple programs running and shuts down. I dont think its the fan because I have checked it and its running okay. I have a little temp monitor and my comp CPU temp will get up to like 76 and it will shutdown. Ty for looking.

Question: system heats up

hi.. am usin a P4 intel chipset motherboard 845GVSR wit 236 ddr1 RAM.. whenever i try playin games like NFS underground2 or project IGI 2; the CPU starts makin more humming sound as tough the fans r runnin much faster.. is it the thermal problem??? plz do giude..
 

Answer:system heats up

Those games are probably overworking your PC. You barely have enough memory to run Windows, then you add some games on top of that and things will heat up. There's some good free temperature monitoring programs available (here's one http://www.majorgeeks.com/Core_Temp_d5665.html) that will watch your CPU temp. Anything under 55c should be OK. You should definitely double your memory (at least as a minimum) and add a video card to take some of the load off the CPU...

Hey guys.

This is my second time with this issue and I'd like some help with it. Been looking online and I can't find anything.

Basically, I'm using my computer:

Windows 7 Home Edition x64 bit
i7-860 quad core 2.8Ghz
6gb ram
Nvidia Gts 240 (soon to be replaced)

And at seemingly random times, the taskbar along the bottom of the page which is normally transparents turns a sort of bright blue/white colour along with the tab bar at the top of whatever I'm using at the time, usually an internet browser. When this happens I can then hear the fans inside my machine spinning up, I open up RealTemp and the temperature shoots up. The first time it did it It went from around 20 to I think 100 because RealTemp marked one of my cores as "logged" today when it did it the max it got to was about 60. But I wasn't doing anything such as playing a game, I had Skype, Opera and maybe Steam open all at the same time and it got to about 60 degrees in a matter of seconds, then after staying there for about half a minute came back down to around 20.

Any ideas?

I thought it might of been the heat sink, but it seems to be securely fasted. I bought some quality thermal paste and I plan to remove the paste that is currently on my CPU and replace it with this. Is there anything else anyone could reccomend?
 

Answer:Changes colour, then heats up.

Answer:XP2600+ over heats

The power unit should not affect the processor heat, however, I think that the BIOS front side bus clock speed should be 166MHz, not 100MHz (read it in a magazine). Hope you have plenty of fans.

My computer is ok when i am doing simple things like word processing or browsing the internet, but as soon as i play my game, age of empires 3, it instantley begin to heat up very severely, it didnt occur until a little while back when i got my new graphics card, even though my new graphic card has a fan on it and i have 2 more one on side of computer(taking air in) and one on the back(pushing air out). I also have one on my processor, but i cant understand why my computer heats up so much now, the top of my case becomes extremely hot, my game and computer completely froze today. Any recommendations on what wud be the best fan to get for my computer will be helpful. Thanks
 

Answer:My computer over heats!

Maintainance:
- Open up your pc, and use a compressed air source or vaccum to clean out all of the dust, especialy on the heatsinks and the dust filters. Make sure you hold on to the fans so to aviod it spinning rapidly while you are cleaning it.
-Tie up all the cables and neat them up to maximise airflow
-Download Speedfan or Everest Home, and check your idle temps (while you are not doing anything) then play an intensive game for a few minutes and check it again. Post up what results you have.

This should be a regular maintanance routine to help keep temps down.. if its still hot, then locate which part is running hot, and investigate to see if you can add a fan or cooling option nearby, or upgrade the heatsink/fan on it.

Question: optimal heats

what are the optimal heats during normal use for a r40, and along the same line when is it approximately cost efficient to bring it to someone to place some thermal grease where it belongs and clean? i'm running at about 40 on one gauge and 59 on the other right now.(that according to speedfan)













Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:optimal heats

To be able to answer this question properly, I'd need to know the model number of your R40...these machines came with three different types of CPUs and various GPUs so what's OK for one need not be for the other... The model number is located at the sticker on the bottom side of your machine, should be something like 2897-GWU...not necessarily these figures, but in that format. Good luck and let us know.

Please help! I am stuck on an issue with a USB stick recently purchased. The stick is fine, the issue is it will only work on the 2 USB ports on back of the computer, not with the USB ports on the front. I have tried other devices, and the same thing happen, fine with back usb ports, but not with front. I downloaded a program to see if the fron ports were recognised, and this has told me they are USB 1.1, but i'm not sure if this means they are actually connected? Anyway, i cant get any device to work on the front USB ports, any suggestions?Thanks!

Answer:front USB  ISSUES! front USB's not working?

The front ports may not, if they are indeed USB 1.1, deliver enough power for the USB stick to work.Try connecting a device that does not draw a lot of power, like a mouse, to see if they are functioning properly.

I even use MSI Afterburner to turn fans up to 100% when playing and it will still heat up that much and its brand new

Answer:heats sink pressure

You have to apply thermal paste between the heatsink and the processor to prevent the processor from overheating. If the processor is overheating the sensor may be detecting this and shutting it down.Do a Google search for the proper way to apply the paste, and don't power up the PC again until you've done so.

Answer:alienware laptop over heats

Hello pcmatty,

How old is the laptop? It seems that something isn't cooling properly. If you have any pets it might be that one of the intake fans took in too much hair / dander and is not working right, or a fan could just be broken all together. Is it possible to remove the keyboard or a panel on the backside of the laptop in order get a closer look and see what is overheating specifically? It sounds like your graphics card is over heating which is causing the performance drop.

So after 3 trips back to the "depot" and 2 new main boards the genius techs finally realized lenovo screwed me and sent me the wrong AC adapter from the get-go thus causing my "runs on battery and wont recognize the charger when using the gt555m"......and by "techs finally realized" i mean I wrote a note asking if the adapter could be faulty. Thus causing them to look at it.ANNNND now, the laptop lets me use the gt555m and also run off AC. Great right? NO. Now, the laptop wont keep time and I mean really wont keep time. I'm talking 1 minute on the windows clock for every hour in real life. And I know that it could be either CMOS battery or the Windows 7 clock issue, I don't really care about the stupid clock.What I do care about is gaming. And I thought once the charger issue was fixed I'd be set......Except now the laptop overheats and shuts off every 5 minutes.Playing half-life 2  the gpu hits 97+ and all cores hit 93+ within 3 minutes and then shut down due to overheat within 5.Sitting idle as it is now it has gpu 90-94 all cores 84-90. And yes I in CelsiusI'm getting no heat out the side and the table isn't hot by the vent. The table is like lava under the laptop though and I don't hear a fan nor do I feel airflow. Is there a way to test the fan. I read of a "dedusting" mode on a z560 that kicks the fan on. Does the y570 have one? I want to make sure the fans even plugged back in as my faith in the lenovo techs is non-existent and it seems almost as tho they just did... Read more

My computer's fairly old now, and pretty pathetic for a modern day gaming computer. I've had many issues before, but they were always able to be fixed -- or at the very least understood. One thing I've noticed recently is that my computer tends to heat up far too hot whenever I leave it running idle for about 5 minutes -- even when watching videos (http://I.imgur.com/WsqU0yJ.png Blue is GPU temperature, Green is CPU. It can, and will, get up to 80 degrees) and just goes back down as soon as I reactivate my computer.

The only thing I can think to link it to is my recently running its fans at maximum speed all the time so I don't forget to manually set it through speedfan and accidentally let my computer burst into flames by limiting its fan use to 40% while I play games. I'll admit I don't know *much* about computers in general, so my question is: Would having my computer run this low in temperature (normally 28 in the morning, around 35-50 in evening depending on heat that day, and usage) mess with something? Or is it just about time to reapply some thermal paste, upgrade my computer or simply be more vigilant in setting my fan speeds?

I'm currently running an old AMD Athlon ii quad core processor.

I have an ACER 5315 Laptop computer. It is a Windows XP O/S. 120 GB HDD. 1GB DDR2. This computer also had Windows Vista running on it as well and I have had Vista removed. With living and working in China there seems to be a huge language barrier in solving computer problems. My computer will heat up and shut down. I can wait a short time and it will turn back on. They (Chinese computer techs) have told me it "could be" the fan module. (In broken English) I clean the dust out of it regularly and I also have a fan plate under it with three fans going and it still heats up and shuts down. My question is, can I set my computer's fan to run continuously? They have told me top fix it I have to mail my computer to Shanghai and they need it for 2 weeks. . I would prefer not to as I need it each week. Could this heating problem be the result of having Vista removed?
 

Answer:Computer heats up and shuts down

First move would be a more through cleaning, because if the fan starts at all, I doubt it's the fan itself or it's control.

If the Vista version had some custom fan control as part of the package, that could affect the cooling. With a fan in the vents, it's hard to believe that it's not staying cool enough to function, that's why I mention more cleaning.

I bought my laptop in US and am using the same adapter. Maybe this is the reason, but I'm seriosly worried as my laptop after an hour of use becomes very hot and shuts down. I don't know what the problem really is, but lately, it seems to shut down even quickly.

I thought the fans might not be working, but they were when I looked at them. It's happened from the brand new, and I've used it like that for six months now. But since the problem's become worst, I thought of asking for help here. Is there anything I can do?

Thank you.

Answer:My laptop heats up and shuts down

HI Shalav,

Your notebook will most likely be using a 'universal' mains adapter so it will work perfectly well in the UK as well as the US.

Your problem is most likely to be a build up of dust in the CPU heat-sink which will reduce its effectiveness to the point where the build up of heat causes the thermal protection circuitry to opertae and shut off power.

Clean out any accumulation of dust and also make sure that there is sufficient air able to circulate through the cooling system. Leave plenty of spoace around and under your notebook.

regards,

Hi I have a T420s with a i7 2620M 3.2GHz and Win7. No TPFC, no overclocking. A few months ago - out of the blue - I started having trouble streaming videos. It would work fine for, say, 5-10 min with CPU load at 15-20%. Then load would suddenly increase to ~50% level and stay there (rather stable) for a few minutes. Finally, it would go to 95-100% load and FPS would start to drop and the sound would become distorted. After some testing to narrow down the culprit, above seems to happen whether streaming in a browser or watching video from a file with video player software. That basically rules out issues related to specific browsers, Flash etc. Monitoring CPU temp with Core Temp and using Resource Monitor, I can see temp quickly rise to 70+C when I start to stream video (HD youtube - nothing fancy - again, load = 15-20%) and reaches 90+C after ~10 min. Then CPU frequency starts to decline and that's where the video/sound is clearly affected and load reaches 95-100%. I can hear the fan running almost all the time. But could it be defect? Any other possible explanations? Any help from you experts out there is highly appreciated!!! Cheers, J  

Answer:CPU on T420s heats up at low loads

To me, it sounds like the heatsink is loose and unable to conduct heat away from the chip, or the thermal paste dried.

Hi, My Lenovo laptop heats up very quickly even if I use it for about half an hour. Then it suddenly shuts down.Can somebody please help me out?

Answer:Lenovo Laptop heats up

I too have a Lenovo laptop (Y series)... Heating seems to be inherent defect in such laptops, I have tried fixing this issue however its of no use, scanned system using different anti virus scanners, no threats detected. Checked the hardware, system properties and compatibilty match nothing unusual. Even my friends have reported heating issue, cd drive issue, speaker issues in their lenovo laptop. During last two years its performance have been consistently bad or worse, unfortunately its not so easy(economically) to replace a laptop like phone-sets.. You need to live with it (Heating and automatically shutting down)... Shutting down mechanism is simply to save the components.

Hi Krito007,
 
Welcome to the Forums  
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with system heating in your Lenovo Y50-70 laptop.
 
Try to clean the fan, go to energy manager select maintenance guide option and select dust removal and check for the issue.
 
Try to clear the entire background application running, does the system overheats only in battery mode or in both adapter and battery mode.
 
Hope this helps. Do post back if the issue persists.
 
Best regards,

my laptop seem to be over heating ..fan makes loud noise and laptop gets hot ..I recently updated to windows 10 but it always seemed to get hot

Answer:laptop over heats , fan runs loud

There are various ways to clean out a laptop to stop it overheating. The most easiest is to blow out the vents with some compressed air. Make sure that you put something in between the cooling fan to stop it spinning too fast, something like a tooth pick,Alternatively if you feel up to it you can dismantle the laptop take out the heatsink and fan and thoroughly clean them and replace the cpu thermal compound too. I did this recently on a Todhiba and its running very cool. Was about 72 degres on idle and would shutdown when a browser was opened, now its running at around 42 degrees on idle and no more shutdown.

Hello,
My computer is getting really hot lately (CPU can get to 96C/~200F), and I have some weird bugs as well. I have an HP pavilion laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate.

Some of the bugs are when SOMETIME I'm trying to delete a big file, it says "discovering..." but doesn't delete anything. When I open certain folders the green bar at the top just keeps on loading and loading even after all the previews of pictures/videos are done. Sometimes it doesn't even show the previews of some pictures/videos (and it did show without a problem in the past).
It also happened to me that I opened the control panel, and I couldn't see anything (usually when the temp are really high and the fan is on max). After restarting my computer everything turned back to normal, but then it happens again...

For an antivirus I'm using Microsoft Security Essentials and for anti-malware I'm using Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.

What could be the problem? I want to avoid formatting...

Answer:computer heats up and content is not showing

You probably need clean the fan exhaust.

An overheated disk drive will generate lots of interrupts that will cause lots of other problems, including frying your mobo and RAM.

If you dont want to take the laptop apart yourself then pay someone to do it, pronto.

It could be that the drives bearings have failed, if that's happened you'll need a new drive. You might be able to attach the old one via sata/USB for long enough to get your data off of it - but dont put it in the sata/USB housing, just leave it out in the open, preferably on an antistat mat, and throw it away when you've finished

My laptop has a severe heat problem. When i watch videos on youtube, or try and watch a dvd the units GPU temp sky rockets and has even shut itself down in the past to apparently save itself from disaster.

It would be nice to watch DVDs but the real issue is that it gets hot running Rosetta Stone. It doesn't get as hot as a DVD would cause it to, and it doesn't get catastrophically hot, but it gets warm enough to make me nervous and do only study for short periods at a time.

Because of the heat coming on during graphic intensive programs I am assuming it's the GPU and GPU cooling that's ****ed up, most likely the result of extended use literally on my lap , on a comforter when laying in bed. When I use it to study now, I place the back end up on a book or something similar to help combat the heat. Still can't watch a DVD, though.

The laptop is an HP Pavillion dv6000 that was purchased in the fall of 2007. I realize it's getting old in terms of technology but I can't afford anything new and want to make this thing last. FYI, I use speed fan. Normal word processing/internet use run the GPU unit at about 62'-66' celcius, with Rosetta Stone bringing it between 68'-75' and DVDs going overboard at 80'+.

So the question is, is there anything I can do relatively cheaply to help this problem? I have looked into an aftermarket cooling tray but am wondering if a GPU relacement might help and be relatively cheap?

Answer:harddrive heats up then can't access files

There is no software for an overheating drive. You might want to try putting some ice in a zip lock bag and then placing the drive on the bag, making sure it stays dry. Also people put the drives in a zip lock bag and then place them in the freezer until cold. Do this at your own risk.





Jerry Withers, a data recovery expert at PC Forensic Solutions, has a few solutions for recovering data if it is lost due to damage to the hard drive (see Resources). He cautions that these methods should not be attempted unless the user has the knowledge and ability to disassemble the computer and remove the hard drive without doing further damage.
One of Withers' suggestions is to remove the hard drive, put it in a plastic bag and place it in the freezer for about 30 minutes. Withers states that "most damage to hard drives is caused by overheating" and that "putting the hard drive into the freezer will cool down the unit and keep it cool long enough to recover the data and back it up." This process can be repeated should the drive overheat during the process. A bag of ice can be used to cool down the unit, but care must be taken to ensure the unit remains dry while cooling.Click to expand...

I have a HP Presario C700 laptop. Os Win7 home 32bit. When I 1st turn the laptop on cold everything is fine. After a while the front left side of the laptop gets warm. It isn't hot enough to burn my hand. I can rest my hand there for a long time but it does get a bit uncomfortable after a while when I am playing a game.
After a while when the laptop is warmed up. Prog's that need a a lot of cpu usage and memory start slowing down and stop working. Then the prog needs to be closed and reopened. Often FireFox will stop working right in the middle of doing something. Thank the makers of FireFox for putting in a sub routine in that lets FireFox go right back to were ever I was (even if I am in the middle typing a post and I don't lose what I already typed) after restarting the prog. Also I understand that some laptops just do that, getting warm in one spot, because of the design and layout. Is it something I just have live with until I can get a better laptop? or is it something that needs fixing and can be fixed.

OOO a ps. Sometimes, not very often, like with the current proj I am working on with a pare of SDR (Software Defined Radio) RTL USB radio dongles. I am often running 4 or 5 different prog's at the same time to decode the digital signals picked up by the receivers. Windows sometimes, not often, will get so over worked that it locks up the laptop and the only thing left to do is reboot the laptop.

Answer:re: laptop is giving problems after it heats up

You can try using a laptop cooler.

And to make sure of thermal throttling:
- Change to High Performance power plan - so CPU stay at max frequency
- Download and run HWInfo in sensor-only mode.
- Make sure minimum column for CPU frequency is 100% (multiplier at max), reset the readings (lower right) and keep it running in the background
- Do your thing until it gets slow, then check the frequency (multiplier) minimum to see if CPU has throttled.

Also try to vacuum the fan openings as compressed air may cause more issues with laptops since blown away dust don't have anywhere to escape.

Hi,

The Heatsink may have dust, causing the CPU or GPU to overheat.

You can remove the dust by spraying the vents with compressed air.

If the dust is very thick, you might need to bring the laptop to a service center and get them to dismantle the laptop and clean the heatsink properly.

Hi

First of all check if the cooling modules are not clogged by dust and debris.
The clogged fans could not rotate fast enough and this leads to higher temperature.

Furthermore I recommend setting the ?Cooling Method? to ?maximum CPU performance? as mentioned here:
http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD12017W0001R01.htm

Are you using Toshiba display driver?
The Toshiba graphic card driver supports an overheating protection of graphic chip and clock down the GPU if the temperature is too high

Answer:My Qosmio X870-14T heats up in 10 minutes

Hi

Generally the notebook would overheat because the internal parts produce too much warmness or the internal cooling modules don?t run properly and cannot cool down the internal parts.

Why internal parts would produce too much warmness? Well, this can be possible if you would use graphic drivers which are not designed for mobile usage.
For example drivers from nVidia or ATI don?t support ?GPU overheating protection?. Such drivers allow the GPU to run with best performance (if necessary). This could lead to more heat dissipation and finally to overheating.
GPU drivers released on Toshiba pages are modified for notebook usage and support such kind of protection.

Why cooling fans cannot cool down the parts?
Mostly because of dust inside the notebook vents. It could be also possible that cooling vents and fans are clogged by dust and cannot rotate properly and air cannot circulate as it should. In such case the notebook should be cleaned.

Finally it could be possible that thermal grease which is placed between cooling module and CPU isn?t good enough or dried out. This would also affect the CPU cooling and would lead to higher temperature.

So as you see there are many reasons why notebook could ?overheat?.

Motherboard: Epox EP-5EPA+
CPU: Intel Pentium 4 3.4 ghz 1 MB L2 cache

I just built this computer a few days ago and it was running fine with the thermal pad that was provided on the heat sink with the CPU but as soon as i put some sort of load on it like playing a game...the fan started going crazy rising to around 4,600 RPMs and the temp of the CPU went to around 160 fahrenheit. So, I decided to remove the pad with some 91% isopropyl alcohol and put some arctic silver 5 on...after putting the arctic silver on the POST reads the CPU temp to be going up to 185 degrees and it shuts down the computer automatically. I cleared the BIOS so my setting of auto shutdown on 140 degrees was disabled. I'm sure this reading is wrong though...I ran the computer open and put my hand around the heatsink as the POST was reading temperatures around 180 degrees and i could just feel a little hot air but nothing even close to that temperature...I'm sure i need to update my BIOS but i dont even have enough time to boot windows before the computer shuts down...any ideas?

Thanks
 

Answer:CPU heats up too fast to update BIOS

I looked at the board
can't tell if the temp senser is mounted right on MB or is stuck to CPU and has plug
if it is plugable unplug it,I have not seen any mention of this issue with OH.
EPOX makes a good MB I have had a few of them.
if you are putting your finger on heatsink and it is not contacting surface correctly it would in fact not feel hot ,but the cpu would burn up
I'm goofy I polish the CPU and heatsink shiny use very little thermal paste.
I don't think its the PSU at this point ,if you have a spare try it see if it helps.

Hello,

I am having problems with my laptop. The computer gets hot and freezes. Currently running Vista. Also, Firefox will hang sometimes and other times not open up. When I try to kill the process in task manager, the program won't stop. Also, it runs slow. The previous owner of the computer went to a lot of shady sites and downloaded all kinds of stuff so it's possible there were a ton of infections on it. I ran malware scans with Spybot and A Squared free. Both picked up a few Trojans and a bunch of other malware. Tried to quarantine/remove with those programs but I'm not sure it worked. Spybot, I think told me that it wouldn't remove the programs because I didn't have an administrator account on the computer. This is weird, because I double checked and I'm definitely running an administrator account. I even deactivated the guest account then tried it again and it did the same thing. Any help you can give me to make sure I get all malware off this computer would be greatly appreciated.

You can try to head back to 32-bit but I doubt it'll help, it sounds like the laptop is over heating due to a broken fan.

Hey everyone. As the topic suggests I have have this issue with my five year old computer.
 
Last friday while playing X-com on Steam, my pc totally froze and I could do nothing but make a manual reboot (reset button). After that Windows stalls at the splash screen every time I try rebooting. Even when it goes to recovering mode it halts at the splash screen.
Now before you go telling me to make a reinstall here's what I did. I tried another HD with my old Win 7 Premium (known to work on this pc) but it stalls on the black screen with only the cursor blinking. After that I tried a clean HD (also known to work just perfect) and tried reinstalling Win XP SP3 from a genuine Microsoft Installation CD. The hardware boots like usual and the installation begins from the CD. After the first sequence of loading system files the black screen comes on with a blinking cursor. That's supposed to happen, only it stays that way - nothing more.
 
For the last month or so leading up to the mishap my cpu tended to heat up, especially when using 3D games and virtual chatrooms like IMVU. About three months ago I reinstalled the hardware into a smaller ATX tower. There were no issues with my old Maxi tower. However installing a 2nd chassis fan blowing directly onto the cpu heatsink/fan hasn't helped either. Taking off the ATX casing cover didn't help either.

Answer:My v580c heats up and battery runs out quickly

Hi Noon2015,        
      
Welcome to the Forums  
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with system overheating in your Lenovo V580c laptop.
 
As you have mentioned that the system overheats, try to clean the fan through dust removal from the energy manager. Go to energy manager select maintenance and guide and select run under dust removal option.
 
For low battery backup try to perform the battery gauge reset and check for the issue.
 
Let us know the result.
 
Best regards,

Overheating is not good.
Get the temps using this free tool:  http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html
If any of the temps go over 90ºC, shut the system down and contact Dell for service
 
Beyond that, please run these free diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html

I'm a total newbie to all of this, so here's the problem.

Whenever I play mp4 files on my Windows Media Player (Vista; Inspiron 1525 laptop), my computer starts to rev up, and the fans get going pretty good, as if it's using up a lot of RAM or something to play the videos. On the taskbar, Haali media splitter and ffdshow audio/video decoders icons also show. Is this normal?

I have noticed something that has been happening since I bought it but I didn't realized the origin till now, whenever I work in either excel or word and I press the left button of the mouse or touch pad to, for example move something or highlight a text line, the CPU takes about 100 % of the memory and accordingly the processor fan makes a lot of noise to remove heat (that's consistent though).

Hi there,

Please see the att screen shots for my computers WEI and config, its a Dell Inspiron 5110, 3years old. It had a BSOD issue couple of years ago, I had carried out a clean re-instal, now again I've done a clean re-instal a month or so ago.

The problem areas are:-
1. It suddenly slows down after hibernation.
2. It has shutdown on its own couple of times too.
3. It is over heating.

I do not know what to do. Is it time to change the laptop?

Thanks

Answer:Computer slows down and heats up, even after clean reinstal

I would give it a good cleaning. Probably dirt and fuzz inside.

Answer:Solved: Laptop heats while gaming during charging

Hi,

Check your battery configuration. You may find (as it's default on most laptops) that you're laptop will use more power whilst plugged in. This means that all the components are drawing more power and working at a higher proficiency. So, whilst it's plugged in and your gaming your CPU and GPU are pulling a lot more power. This will make them run faster but with the side effect of heating up. Laptops do not have very good heat displacement and therefore are not intended for gaming, video editing etc.

To help reduce the heat make sure you only use your laptop on a hard surface. You can also buy cooling trays which your laptop sits on http://www.amazon.com/b?ie=UTF8&node=2243862011

Your battery will also heat up whilst its charging this will act like a hot water bottle inside your laptop. Depending on the layout of the internal components this will affect the temperature of everything near it.

i have a dedicated gpu now. so turned off my onboard graphics and its getting extremely hott why is this plz. i need this fixed

Answer:so turned off onboard graphics controller and my gpu still heats up?

After checking the specs out of you GPU, I noticed that the minimum PSU requirment is 350 watt. IMO, that PSU just barely makes its, and looking at your system specs with all you other hardware you might be pushing the limits of the PSU.

And now looking at you case, it seems to be stock retail with only one fan. If that is the case, there lies the majority of your problem....NO air flow. Then there is the build up of dust, which will heat up your hardware. Keep the inside of your case clean and dust free.

I would recommend getting a mid-tower case that is well vented and with at least 2 case fans, either built in or buying the fans separately and installing them yourself...one for intake and the for exhaust. You could do this for less than $50.

Hello The Lah...

Nice one about the email of M$. They don't actually have this kind of support and they won't answer back I guess.

A few things you could try to fix this though, would be try Windows Update and see if it finds any new drivers for your tablet, or to manually download the correct chipset driver for your model from ASUS. (Use the Vista drivers, since there are no Windows 7 drivers yet and the Vista ones are compatible in most cases).

Answer:Lenovo y510p SLI over heats and restars with terrible graphics

Probably the fans were not working as expected, which resulted in over heating of your laptop and restart. That could have caused failure of drivers which is not unusual. (However, they mostly recover by themself) Are you still having the problem?Did lenovo already send your laptop back after repair? 1) You should also consider buying a laptop cooling pad to lower the temps and reduce heat.2) Try NOT to use your laptop for gaming at Ultra for every game, it will create problems. Spec Ops is a very graphics intensive game, or maybe not optimized. It pushed my temps to a max of 86 degree celsius with one 755M card. That is the max my temps have ever been. I bought a Cooling pad and now the max temps are only 80

I have a Radeon R7 240 and have had it for a little over a year with no problems. A couple of days ago, I noticed games were running unusually slowly and decided to check the temperature, which was at around 50║ C (122║ F). This seemed very high as it used to stay at around 30║ C (86║ F).

Restarting fixes it temporarily. After about half an hour of normal temperature it spikes back up within a matter of minutes and stays at a maximum of 53║ C (127║ F). Now, supposedly this isn't dangerously high, but it's still much higher than it should be (especially when idle) and the decrease performance is noticeable when I'm playing a game and not just using my browser.

Additionally, once it begins spiking, GPU usage seems very high. HWMonitor tells me it's at 90-94%, but that doesn't seem right as I have nothing running that could make it that high. CPU and disk usage seem totally normal. I've downloaded a program called Process Explorer to check what could be causing it, but nothing weird shows up.

Right now I'm blaming it on dust and will try to clean it up as soon as I have the time, but I've had graphics cards overheat before and don't remember it affecting GPU usage, so I decided to make a thread just in case anyone knows what could be causing it. Thanks in advance.
