Acer :: Aspire 5738G Heating

Jan 13, 2010

I bought an acer aspire 5738G a couple of days ago with windows 7 x64 installed ,catalyst 9.9. When playing any game or using any 3D demanding application both my GPU temp. jumps up to 85-95 degrees C, and the CPU to 75-85 degrees C. according to GPU-Z my fan speed is always at 30% no matter how hot the lappy gets. I also wanna mention I didn't OC or use any modded stuff yet.

My questions are:

-Are these normal temps since this is my first acer and my previous lappy which wasn't an acer with a Nvidia Geforce GO7900 never got past the 75 degrees barrier

- Is there something wrong with the fan or it is supposed to kick in only at critical heat point

Acer :: Aspire 5738G Fan Runs Almost Constantly

Nov 8, 2009

When I power on, after about 5-6 minutes the fan (I assume the CPU fan) kicks in. However, it then seems to remain on constantly until the laptop is turned off, even if I'm only idling. This is slightly annoying, not just because of the noise, but also it seems to have quite a noticeable effect on the battery life.

I have installed SpeedFan to keep track of the CPU temp and it seems that the fan kicks in initally when the core temps reach about 35 C, but then the fan does not switch off, even when temps drop back down to 25/26 C, which seems very cool.

On every other laptop I have used (none of which were Acers), the CPU fan only comes on now and again, as and when it is needed.

So, is this normal behaviour or is there possibly a fault with the fan control mechanism ? If so I will consider taking back to the retailer for an exchange.

Acer :: Inactive 4500MHD Inside The Aspire 5738G

Apr 28, 2010

I have bought the Aspire 5738G over half a year ago and it was just a couple of days back from now, when Everest showed me a hardware report about an integrated Intel 4500MHD onboard, which is inactive.

I couldn't find any info on this matter online, so I thought that with your help and my readiness to disassemble my laptop, we could figure out a way to make use of this integrated chip, which would result in serious power savings when running on battery.

I am thinking that maybe there is some place in the circuitry that was cut in order to disable the chip or something, or that it has no access to the LCD and HDMI ports.

Also, I downloaded a Service Manual for my model and I couldn't find my 5738G specification in it.

Acer Aspire 5738G :: Windows 7 Reinstall Post HD Replacement - Setup Could Not Configure OS

Jan 1, 2015

My original hard drive of Acer aspire 5738G crashed and I bought a new 1 TB WD hard drive. I tried to reinstall Windows 7 from recovery disk. All data copy and system restoration (from 3 restoration disks) completed successfully. But after the auto reboot, during “Setup is applying system settings” stage I encountered error message “Windows Setup could not configure Windows to run this computer’s hardware”. I tried reinstalling the OS multiple times but every time I am getting the same error. Before replacing my hard drive, I was using Windows 7 Home Premium OEM version and now I was trying to restore the same in my system.

Acer :: 5738G Bottom Vent Built Closed

May 5, 2010

I bought my Acer Aspire 5738G laptop last november and this month I experienced for the first time my laptop shutting down by itself while playing cs-source.

The laptop is quite hot and upon searching the net found out that it's most likely due to overheating.

My question is about the ventilation at the bottom of 5738G.

Is it supposedly closed? No holes/slots? Cause I think it's the cause of overheating.

The system doesn't have a way to take-in air

It's like it was designed to be a bottom vent for air intake but then forgot to make holes in it.

I also searched for it's manual and confirmed that it is a ventilation slot.

It even says there "do not cover or obstruct the opening of the fan".

(I've got a screen shot attached. I'm talking about part 6. That part of my laptop doesn't have holes/slots but clearly there should be according to the manual.

but i have also upgrade my ram to 2 gb but its kingston value ram

and i have 2 operating system now, window xp and window vista ultimate

is it true that if i run the systerm on vista, it make the pc temperature hotter? and if run on high performance, its even higher than that?

at the moment im running window xp, running window media player watching videos, with 2 internet explorer running and also the everest ultimate edition which shows 63c for the cpu and 39c for hdd, and now im using those 4 fans notebook cooler.

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv4 Heating

Jan 3, 2009

I recently purchased the highly touted HP dv4-1155se from Best Buy. I am very pleased with it so far, and have found 64 bit vista much less of a pain than I thought.

With that being said, the only thing I am worried about is the heat issues - it seems to get very hot when playing a game or intensive graphic operation. I was using CPUID Monitor, and the temperature of the AMD Turion X2 peaked at 82 Celsius. I assume this temperature isn't normal? Is this temperature hazardous for my computer? Do you feel like it could go even higher? I feel like it should handle heat better than this, especially after playing a game for only 30-60 minutes.

HP/Compaq :: HDX 16t Heating

Dec 3, 2009

I bought an HDX 16t back in may, and have loved it.

But I notice, after installing Speedfan, that this thing gets VERY hot

even propped up a half inch off the desk, playing any game that's demanding gets the thing to a blistering 96*C... WAY too hot for a laptop.

Now here's the interesting thing, when it hits 96* it stays at 96*, like the fan kicks into turbo mode or something.

is this a defective product? or do all 16t's have this issue?

and if it is an issue I can fix, what are some ideas? besides getting a cooling pad, I don't really like the extra bulk under the front of the laptop. But for fixing the comp, should I mess around with some setting somewhere to make it kick into turbo mode at a lower temp? (like 88), should I under volt it? it's a new laptop with no trapped dust.

Dell :: Studio 15 (Heating)

Dec 6, 2009

I've had my Studio 15 for 10 months now and it has always heated up very soon after startup but lately it has been getting so hot that it burns to put my hands on the palm rest or the touchpad.

In the last few days it has also been switching itself off randomly which I think might be from the heat. When it turns back on I get a blue screen with a memory dump and it doesn't let me turn it back on for a while.

Also when it gets hot, the laptop seems to slow down, freeze or mouse movement/video play stutters on the screen which I don't think should happen for 4GB of ram .....

Dell :: GPU Heating Up Under Vista

Jul 16, 2007

I have an m90 with NVIDIA Quadro FX 3500M.

It came with Windows Vista Ultimate 32bit preinstalled.

I've installed Windows XP as a second OS(dual boot).

Immediately I noticed that GPU under Windows Vista in idle state keeps heating up.

In Windows XP its temperature stays at the level of 60 degrees C in idle state and the fans are not engaged.

In Windows Vista its temperature in idle state goes very quickly to the level of 80 degrees C the fans are engaged, temperature goes down to the level of about 60 degrees, the fans are disengaged and everything repeats.

Anybody knows the possible reason of GPU heating up under Vista?

Both OSs have latest drivers installed.

Dell :: Heating Problem Studio Xps 16

My laptop is realy hot sometime. I was just on firefox ( with alot of page open) and the heat go like 60, 65 degree celsius ( it is 140, 149 in Fahrenheit i think). I don't know if it is normal or if my laptop have a problem.

I have another problem. When i play on game my computer go very slow and when i chek in task manager the cpu run a 100%. It happen in some of the game that i play. I don't understand why because a chek the minimum configuration of the game and my computer is over that so i am supose to be able to play the game with no problem. The last game that this situation happen was prince of persia ( the last one).

And when i play on game the heat go at 70, 75 degree celsius ( it is 158,167 Fahrenheit ) ....

Dell :: Latitude D630 Over Heating

May 21, 2010

I have a D630 that is still under warranty, but I've been having huge overheating problems with it. (We're talking 160F+ under light load). This is the model with the Nvidia video card.

When I first called Dell, they sent someone to replace the fan and heatsink. That didn't solve the problem. I figured that I was suffering from the notorious Nvidia thermal issue, and they replaced the motherboard. The problem got worse, and they replaced the motherboard again, and the problem got slightly better.

The thing is, I don't actually need an Nvidia video card because I don't do much aside from internet browsing and copying files over the network. I was upset after the fourth time they sent a Dell technician, that I called them and demanded that they replace my Nvidia board with a standard Intel graphics board. They finally agreed.

Yesterday a technician came out with a new motherboard with an Intel video chipset rather than Nvidia, as well as a new heatsink and fan that matches the new board. Now the darn thing is running at 190F at light load!!! it's actually worse than the Nvidia one was!

Do any of you have any clue what the problem might be? I don't even want to use this thing anymore. What's even more interesting is that we've issued about 30+ Intel D630's out to our associates at work, and none of them have any issues. I wonder why it's just mine.

Dell :: M1330 Heating Up And Slowness

Dec 26, 2008

Ive had my m1330 for about 16 months now.

Had issues with it during that period mostly on heating up and slowness.

Ive had the motherboard replaced once around the 10 month period.

Now the laptop is still heating up and its really slow/lagging especially when im watching videos(DivX, DVDs etc). Sometimes i would even get the BSOD.

Is there a way to fix this, could this be a software issue?

Dell :: New Heating Problems With XPS1640

Dec 6, 2009

Got my XPS1640 back in June, undervolted it and never had any temperature problems and it has performed greatly. However, a few days ago I updated the GPU, bios and cpu ( i think) drivers to be more up-to-date. Got A11 (was A08) and used mobility modder for the new ATI driver.

Since then however I have had problems. CPU temperatures have been raising (around 80+ or so - before it would only reach 70 max) causing the laptop to throttle back giving me dire frame rate in games.

Dell :: Heating In Studio XPS 1340

Apr 2, 2009

I am thinking about buying a studio XPS 1340. The only thing holding me back is the heating issue.

If the heating only comes from intense use of the graphics card (ie gaming) then that's not too much of an issue for me.

If there isn't a lot of heat generated from web/email, watching videos and running applications, then I think I'd be ok with it.

The bottom gets so hot at times it can literally burn my skin, I have a couple of marks to prove it.

Dell XPS 15 L502X :: Heating After Installing Windows 8

I have installed windows 8 on my system last month. Till Windows 7 was installed everything was fine. Battery backup was around 2.5 to hours on normal use and 1.5-2 hours if I used to hear song or watch movie. But after I have installed windows 8 the heating problem has started, battery backup has dropped. It gives around 50 minutes on hearing songs and around 30 minutes on watching movies and around 1.5 hours on normal use.

Dell :: Anyone Having Gpu Heating Problems On Your Precision M4400 When Gaming

Jan 20, 2009

I was all set to buy a refurbished Precision m4400 until I started to read about gpu downclocking heating issues that some people have when playing higher end gpu intensive games.

Is this still a problem with this particular notebook (where a lack of sufficient cooling design will force the gpu to downclock when trying to play gpu intensive simulation games)?

Do you recommend this notebook if I plan on using it for gaming 50% of the time? I need to buy a business notebook through my company but do not want to buy this particualr one if I can't game with it. (My other option would be an XPS 1530 with a worse 8600gty gpu option.)

Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated to help me decide whether to purchase this m4400 notebook.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T430 Heating While In Sleeping?

Sep 17, 2013

bought my T430 this week.
after installing every software i will need on my notebook, i closed it (sleeping) and put it in my backpack. i only needed it again after 2 days. when i touched the bag it was already hot in the outside, i opened it, and my Lenovo was burning... i turned my computer on, the battery went down to 13% from 100% (2 days ago), as it was sleeping, i would have suggested it uses roughly 10-15% in 2 days. 
my questions are:
1. is the heating thing normal while sleeping? what could have caused the problem?
2. is it possible that some parts of the computer got damaged in such a hot atmosphere? (note that i kept it in a closed bag)
possible solution to question 1: i ran a command prompts, typed in the code that tells me what is allowed to wake my computer. noticed the external Logitec mouse and that Intel giganet networks were allowed, so i disabled both. it was probably the mouse as it was in the same bag, i guess it was moving in the bag and waking the computer?

Dell :: Vostro 1500 Problems With Over Heating And Hard Drive

Apr 10, 2010

I've got 2 problems with my dell vostro 1500:

1) There is a huge amount of heat coming out of the side vent and the fan is constantly on. I'm led to believe that this is because of dust inside the system. Looking at the service manual ( suggests that I have to take the monitor off. I'm worried that the system won't work after I do this. Can't I just open the system from the bottom?

2) My second problem is about hard drive noise. Looking on this website, many people have commented that hard drive noise is low. For me the hard drive noise is quite loud and when your in a quiet room it can be annoying. I've changed the setting in the BIOS to quiet but this has made no difference. I know that the hard drive is not broken because it's only 3/4 months old and I have used seatools to check that there are no faults with the hard drive. Is there any way to make the hard drive quieter?
