Apple :: Home-Made Cooling Pad With Speed Control

Feb 18, 2009

well last night and this morning i was busy making my self a home made cooling pad, with some crap laying around the house. I don't know if there is already one but i'll put this one up. I will upload pictures tomorrow. The total project was about 1 hour and cost less than $10. It also has a speed control which is cool (it is built on my ac/dc adapter so you will make yours). My mother-tongue is not English but French, so excuse the words i might use or not use. Also their are some tools i couldn't translate the name, but when pics are up I'm sure you will know..................

HP/Compaq :: Maximize File Transfer Speed Over Home Network

Mar 31, 2010

I have a DV6-2170us. I would like to know the easiest/cheapest way to maximize my file transfers over my home network. The house is wired with a gigabit ethernet infrastructure, but the HP only has 100Mbs controller. I would like to get best speed possible for large media file transfers/backups.

My questions are:Can I add gigabit ethernet to the laptop somehow?Would it be easier to just add an eSATA card to my media server desktop PC?Should I just replace my 802.11g with a 802.11n router?

HP/Compaq :: To Control The Fan Speed On HP's Notebooks

Acer :: Aspire 5739G Fan Speed Control

Sep 12, 2009

is there any way to control the fan speed of this lap top?

I have tried speedfan, rivatuner, even tried the undervolting option with RMClock (no success - the CPU was running at the lowest voltage already).

One option did present some signs of activity - Acer Asprie One (!) Fan Control utility. However, it only switched off the fan completely. Besides that, it was quite unstable and sometimes forgot to turn the fan back on after the threshold of temperature was crossed again.

By the way: computer doesn't get hot at all. The feel is quite cool, as Speedfan utility indicates these temperatures:

GPU: 41C
HD0: 36C
Temp1: 54C
Core0: 30C
Core1: 27C

It appears that I love this lap top almost for everything, except its loud operating sound.

I am running at:
ACER 5739G
Vista 32 bit,
Chipset: Intel PM45
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo T6600
GPU: GeForce GT 130M

HP/Compaq :: Fan Speed Control @EliteBook 2530p

Feb 25, 2009

Today I got my HP EliteBook 2530p in "FU432EA" configuration. It was important for me to have an optical drive, so i chose the configuration with the 120 GB 1,8" HDD.

The 2530p looks great so far and performs pretty well... If there weren't the extremely annoying noises coming from the notebook.

The HDD with its 5400 rpm (it's a Samsung HS122JF, very slow btw, not really faster than 4200 rpm drives) makes a clearly audible, very high frequency noise and turns on/off every 30-60 seconds resulting in clicking sounds. I can live with that for the moment, because I'll upgrade to some SSD in the near future.

But the second annoyance is the fan inside the laptop. Even when idling in windows with temps below 50 C the fan turns on every few moments. Unfortunately I haven't been able to control the system fan or even read the actual speed. I tried Notebook Hardware Control, SpeedFan and HWMon, but neither of them reported me anything about the fan. I tried undervolting the CPU with RMClock (which doesn't really support the new Penryn CPUs) and got a few degrees less, but this wasn't enough to keep the fan quiet. In the BIOS there are no options regarding the fan, only some "keep fan always running on AC power", which I disabled.

Acer :: Aspire V3-571g / Ability To Control Fan Speed

Dec 14, 2014

Intel i5-2450M @2.50 GHz (Turbo to 3.1)
8GB RAM
Nvidia GEFORCE GT 630M - 1GB
Windows 7 Home Premium
 
I have had this laptop for about a year now and ever since I bought it it has had major throttling issues while gaming. I have tried many ways to make it run cooler with no such luck (It runs at about 95*C when playing most games) . The fan never runs at 100%, only aboout 70% (from what I can hear) so I was wondering if their was a way I could control the fan in order to run it at 100%.

Apple :: Has The MacBook Made The Air Less Attractive

Jan 31, 2009

The time is near for me to upgrade to a new machine. While this should be an exciting time, I find it more and more stressful as to which MacBook to purchase. I'm currently deciding between the Air and the 2.4 GHz MacBook. The MacBook weighs in only slightly more than the Air, and the thickness of the machines are getting closer to each other. However, the real separating factor for me is the display and the trackpad. I've grown very accustomed to a mouse button, and taking that away feels.. awkward at best. I don't know if I would be able to get used to that. The real separating factor here is the display.

Dell Studio 1535 :: Fan Runs At Maximum Speed When Control Media Panel Plugged In

Jan 12, 2015

I have changed my dell studio 1535 motherboard after ordering a refurbished one from dell. When reconnecting all the parts, everything worked well except the control media button <Previous Track> which was lighting up by itself from time to time.

I unplugged the media control panel, plugged it up again. This time the media panel is lighting up intermittently and the laptop cooler is at maximum. Unplugged again, a cable pin was short circuited and got broken in the process :(.

Fixed the cable, now the media control panel is completely down and the cooler runs at maximum speed. Removing the media panel fixes the cooler issue.

As I am not an expert into this, I was wondering if changing the panel will fix my problem or the faulty connection could have broken the motherboard control panel circuit.

PS. When running diagnostic via F12 key, no faulty issue is detected.

Apple :: MBP 13"cooling Temps

Dec 2, 2009

I know that the mbp can get hot when doing some heavy computing, however I was playing a simple online game the other night called plants VS zombies, check it out if you don't know it. Anyways after playing for only a few minutes I noticed that my macbook was getting very warm, and after about 15 minutes of playing it the underside of it was hot to the touch and the topside(keyboard) part of it was quite warm and I could feel the heat radiating off of it. I haven't even had it for a week yet but have done quite a few things including watching movies both on a HD and from a DVD. I have had multiple browser sessions open with wireless on music playing in I itunes etc. And I have played around with some other settings etc. Nothing else I have done on the computer has made any part of it warm to the touch, but this simple online game made it to hot to sit on my lap, and very hot to the touch and has me worried something might be wrong with it, I would hate to play a more demanding game, or do some video editing etc..which is one of the reasons I bought this computer over a PC in the first place. I still have 10 days or so to return it for a full refund or else exchange it for another I have tried restarting the system a few times and playing the game again and the temps shot right up again.

Apple :: Unibody MacBook And Cooling Pad

Jun 29, 2009

I had a Dell E1505 before my MacBook and used a Targus Cooling Pad with it that also served as a USB hub. The Dell has alot of vents on the bottom and the cooling pad worked well but now that I have the uMB is there any reason to have the cooling pad even on as I question how effective it is? On top of that, is it even needed?

Apple :: Effectiveness Of Cooling Pads On Unibody Macbooks

Jan 10, 2010

My friend has a 15'' unibody Macbook Pro. He's thinking about getting a cooling pad for it, and he asked me for suggestions. I said that I really couldn't advise him as Macbooks aren't built like regular laptops with the fans on the bottom. Even still, would a traditional active cooling pad lower temperatures by any significant amount, or would it not be worth it. I would usually advise anyone who asks to get a large all metal cooling pad, but if it's not going to do that much, I don't want him to waste his money.

Apple :: How Do I 'point' Home Folders To Different Drives

Aug 23, 2009

I have a SSD/HDD setup in my 13" MBP, 60GB and 500GB respectively, that being said, I want to make the link to "Movies, Torrent, and Applications" go there.

For Torrent and Applications it's easy, move the folders, delete the original, set an alias in the home folder. Done. (My application folder is for storing Games, and other Apps that are either OSX or WIndows apps, not the actual App folder that OSX uses for programs.)

Anyways, I create a Movies folder on my other HDD, and go to delete the old Movies folder on the SSD/OSX Drive, and OSX tells me, "You cannot delete because this folder is required by OSX."

OK, but how do I get it to link to the new drive?

In Win 7 I remember just opening properties, and clicking 'set target folder' and bam it's done. I did this a lot back then.

ALSO, If I UNMOUNT my second HDD, does it 'shut off' and 'stop consuming power'?

I realised I can re-mount it in Disk Utilities, and probably with a Unix command.

I just wanna save power when I'm mobile, by not having to use the spinner.

Apple :: Connecting To My Workgroup/network At Home W/ OSX

Jun 19, 2009

Recently got a macbook for the first time and I'm having trouble figuring out how to connect to the other (vista pc) computers on my network. Of course on vista I would just click network and it would show all devices online, but here nothing shows.......so I've looked up walkthroughs and I have to go to GO/ connect to server, then punch in the computer name...ok....but once I'm in, all I see on the pc I tested on is this "users" folder and nother else. I have virtually everything set to share....what am I doing wrong? Why can't I see the normal public/shared folders? Is there an easier way to connect to my home network computers?

Apple :: Spare Hard Drives - Home Replacement - And Full Disk Imaging

Jan 12, 2010

I currently have everything I ever need on one laptop -- a mid-2009 15" MBP. Having had a slew of hard drive problems over the past few years, and given that such disks are regularly the source of problems (before, say, a logic board), I'm considering purchasing a spare hard drive and keeping it, or the one in my machine, as a backup disk for the day when my current drive dies. The closest Apple store is ~45 minutes away, and I'm perfectly capable of doing my own computer surgery. An inoperable laptop would be a pretty significant problem for me.

So basically, my questions are twofold:

- From perusing the hard drive threads a few months back here in the Apple forum, it seems like WD's Scorpio Blue (500 GB, 5400 RPM) is the popular choice. Given the time that's elapsed since its release (and the thinning of hard drive threads after the last "big one" I found), are there any other drives, SSD or standard, that can beat it in terms of power usage / noise / performance overall without gouging the bill too much?

- I use Time Machine with a Time Capsule to keep everything nice and backed up, but an HD/SSD swap would be best done with an image of my entire drive. Is Carbon Copy Cloner still the go-to for that?

Apple :: Mac Boot-up Between Windows -OSX Speed

Mar 2, 2009

I purchased a used macbook pro 2.6 a couple of weeks ago from ebay and it had a screen problem, IMO> anyway I sent it back and got a refund, I just purchased a NEW 2.66 MHz and I'm expecting it at the end of the week, I was impressed how the first mac booted up so fast with OSX so my question is if I had windows XP dual booting would it boot to the windows as fast as it did with the OSX or will the anti-virus slow it down ?

Apple :: Superdrive Read Speed

Mar 5, 2009

I'm recently doing a lot of video editing stuff so...

I burned a video file to a CD and tried to play it off the CD to test it, but the read speed is so slow that it keeps on lagging. And when I try to copy the file back to disk (me and my paranoid testing), it also says its gonna take like 2 minutes even though its only ~160MB.

And when I'm importing a CD into iTunes, it won't go much faster than like 8x.

Is this normal? I'm plugged into the wall if that makes any difference. I ask especially because the rated read speed according to the Apple website is 24x.

Apple :: Controlling Fan Speed In Windows

Dec 28, 2009

with a native Windows boot... has anyone found a good option for controlling the fan speed?

Right now I have to set a minimum speed in SMCfancontrol and reboot...

The only two options I know of to control fan speeds in Windows is..

Input Remapper: Never worked for me... Vista or Windows 7... it freezes and causes all kinds of problems with the machine no matter what I do.

Lubbo's Fan Control: doesn't work, just gives me and error that it can't load the IO driver. I read that it currently doesn't work right with Bootcamp 3, and to kill bootcamp.exe in order to run it... but that doesn't help either, still the same IO error and it launches and cant detect fans or temps. is there something else out there anyone has tried... or know how to get around the issues with these other two?
