Dell :: Fan Running At High, Laptop Cool?

Sep 3, 2009

So I know I made another thread about over heating, but it's not drawing that much attention.

A few days ago my Inspiron 1420 was crashing due to overheating (I've had it for a year and a half).

Dell came out, replaced the motherboard, and things were fine until it started overheating AGAIN a few hours after the techie left. Dell came out the next day with a new hard drive, heatsink and fan.

Dell :: HIgh-End Gaming Laptop

Nov 11, 2007

Ive had my E1705 for over a year . I was very satisfied with it`s performance . It was handling all my applications without any problems . Now it broke and i will be getting a new laptop soon .

I am not a hardcore gamer but i realy like and enjoy some games . I expect games to run on max settings to enjoy them . So far ive had just a few . My newest games r Doom3 ( D3:RoE ) , BF2 , BF2142 . Also i play wow wich runs flawlessly on my E1705 .

Now we have several great games coming in the end of the year . I dont think my laptop would handle them since i see that people with M1710s are experiencing problems .

Thus i have a choice between 3 brands on gaming laptops . My budget is around 3000$ .

Here are 3 models ive been looking at .....

HP/Compaq :: Laptop Getting Hot- Fans Not Going High

Sep 24, 2009

I seem to be having an issue with my laptop and it's the fans not going high or fast. I don't know when this started happening but the odd thing is that the fans are not broken because when I boot it up I can hear and feel the fans going fast but as soon as the screen gets to the Windows Loading Screen the fans go back down to normal or slow speed, which is normal but when I'm playing my games I expect it to speed up so it can cool down my laptop, nope instead at 97 Celsius it's still the same speed and doesn't even bother trying lol. This is getting quite annoying because I need a fan sitting on the ground pointing up at my laptop just to keep it cool so it doesn't just turn off on me now I'm debating weather I should take it to my local Future Shop seeing as how I still have it under there 2 year warranty but I kind of look at that option as my last resort till I can be sure I can't fix it.

If any of this information helps heres what I'm running:
HP G60-104CA Laptop
2 GB of RAM
1.90 GHz AMD Athlon X2 64 Dual Core Processor
256 MB of Video RAM (Taken from the 2GB of ram)
Running Windows 7
BIOS Password on Start Set to ON.
Startup Windows Password is ON

Dell :: Why Is My Laptop Running So Hot Idle

Dec 2, 2008

For the past few days, I woke up to my laptop's fan rather loud spinning. I noticed that my computer was constantly at 100% CPU usage even with like literally no processes opened, and it's idling ~50C.

It's to the point where moving my mouse across the screen lags, the pointer jumps from one spot to another.

I'm not really sure what the problem is, I ran AVG with no problem, and I don't remember doing anything to my computer in the past few days that would be considered abnormal...in fact, the only thing I did do was try to use a screensaver for the first time ever, but I turned it off with no difference,

Dell :: Running The Laptop Always On AC Power

May 28, 2009

I own a S1555 from Dell. Currently i am using the laptop on AC power which is supplied by an UPS. I have removed the battery from the laptop. I have connected the laptop to the UPS because even in the case of power failure, the working will be uninterrupted.

Now my query is, will it harm the laptop in the long term? I read about the laptop overheating in other forums, but strangely mine does not overheat, although i keep mine connected to AC power 24x7. I do all sorts of stuffs like gaming (the most recent one was GTA 4) and word processing on the laptop.

Dell :: CANNOT Keep My M1730 Cool

Jun 16, 2009

I've had it almost 2 years and im beginning to think the graphics cards are giving up on me

right now it is idle running very few programs, and my temps are (according to HWMonitor)

CPU Core 0 -54-51-63
CPU Core 1 -54-51-62

8700M GT 1 67-67-68
8700M GT 2 -79-79-80

HDD 43-43-44

surely the second GT shouldnt be in the high 70's being idle?!

the top of the XPS (above the keypad just below the screen) is also almost too hot to touch, not long ago I took it apart and gave it a good clean to get rid of the dust but there didnt seem to be much dust at all .....

Dell :: Keeping The XPS 1530 Cool

Oct 13, 2008

I just bought a XPS 1530 and Im looking for a few opinions on keeping it running cool.

1. What fan controller software should I use for the 1530?

2. Is it possible to replace the stock GPU fan with an aftermarket one? If so is there a guide on that.

3. Similar to question #2 is there a guide on replacing the thermal paste on the 1530 with a 8600m GT GPU?

4. Whats the best laptop cooler for the 1530 that lines up to the fans underneath.

Acer :: Laptop Running Vista Slow

Jun 6, 2009

I've been trying to get Vista Ultimate to run on my laptop for a while now, and every time I install using a clean installation, it runs painfully slow. If i have more than one window open its not even worth using. So I always run back to XP and I'll be honest in saying that I'm quite bored with it.

how to make it run better with Aero?

My Laptop's Specs Are
Brand: Acer Extensa 4220
CPU: Intel Celeron CPU 560 - 2.13GHz
RAM: 1GB DDR2
Graphics: Moblie Intel GMA X3100

Dell :: Before/after Temps With Cool Slice For Latitude/precision

Nov 16, 2008

if anyone with the coolslice could report on how effective its passive design is at cooling the notebook?

In particular i would be interested in someone with a precision m4400....

Before and after temps would be helpful, how warm the bas of the cooler is when its attached, or if it feels always cool..also if it manages to keep the fan on "medium" speed most of the time....

Acer :: Hot-line And Cool

Feb 8, 2009

I asked Acer hotline over the phone for the service guide to my TravelMate laptop, and a very friendly hot-line-guy told me to get it from retrevo.com or from laptoprepair101.com - both sites, however, have been told (from Acer or ?) not to host the Acer service guides any more.

One or two compagnies still seems to have them for sale, but as I don't have any possibility to buy over the net - and don't find it reasonable, either, to pay for the guide to a computer that was expensive enough when it was bought ...

I can find a lot of reasons for Acer (and other manufact.) not to include the service guides in the box together with new laptops - and I might even be able to find good reasons as well for not making it too easy to get the guides at the internet - as long as the products are still produced or as long they are newer than 2 years - but after that time I cannot find any reason at all why they still want their customers to pay for the service guide at a 3.part compagny.

It's UNREASONABLE and UNFAIR - so next time I buy a laptop I might look for another brand with a little more customer friendly policy.

As a matter of fact it is dangerous not to clean the cooler now and then - not doing it might in the worst case cause a fire, so as long as they don't mount a little 'door' to open for removing dangerous dust-cakes they should at least let the service guides be reachable from their service hot-line.

Acer hot-line has no techniciants and nobody there knew how to clean the cooler but admitted that it's important to do it - uncool, unhot or unacer ...

I was just checking my wife's older HP Pavilion dv9628nr running Vista Home Premium with 2 HDD's.  I didn't even know it had 2 HDD's.  I opened the case to make sure.
 
Below is a screenshot of Disk Management for this system.  I have some questions:
 
1. Why is there an OS partition on each HDD?
 
2. Are 2 needed and can one be deleted?

HP Pavilion M6 Networking :: Laptop Does Not Recognize Wireless Router Running Windows 7

I have an HP Pavilion m6 running Windows 7 Home Premium.
 
My workplace installed a router a few months ago.  It's a Cisco E2000.  My laptop will not recognize the wireless signal from the router.  It recognizes about 10 other wireless signals from other locations outside the office.  My phone also recognizes the router and can connect to it no problem.  I've installed all the updates for Windows 7 and for the HP laptop.  I've also installed the latest driver for the wifi card in the laptop.
 
Why the laptop does not recognize the wifi?

Acer Aspire V3-771 :: Laptop Running Win 8 Shuts Off When Gaming Or Viewing Some Videos?

Sep 14, 2014

My Aspire V3-771 is a little over a year old now. I don't know much about computers, but i do enjoy several pc games, and watch a lot of streaming videos. when doing so my computer almost always shuts itself off, even while running games that could hardly be called graphic intensive. I'd thought it might be an overheating issue? but i don't think that's the case. 

I've also noticed that, within the task manager, the disk will often jump to 100%.
 
Again, for months after i bought the machine, it worked perfectly fine. many of the programs that it used to run, now cause it to shut down without warning.

Acer :: Travelmate 5624 Does Not Cool

Aug 19, 2009

I have problems with the high temperature of my Travelmate 5624WSMI. It is too hot!

However:
- I cannot hear any fan running (I do not know if I should, and I do not remember if I did when it worked properly).

- I read that it might be due to dust. For this reason I tried to clean it (them?) with a can of compressed air but with no success.

- I installed SpeedFun. I read this: GPU 51 C (or more!); HDO 42 C; Temp1 32 C; Temp2 42 C; Core0 46 C; Core1 46 C. As I understand, GPU is burning.

- I tried to open my notebook but without success. I do not how to do it.

Dell :: Quiet And Cool. Thermal Paste Replaced! 38@idle 73@load

Mar 25, 2009

I replaced the thermal paste of the CPU and the GPU with "Coollaboratory liquid pro". And I replaced the thermal pad of the northbridge with "Arctic Silver 5" thermal paste.

Here are my sesults (in a 20 degrees Clesius enviroment, T9600, 2,8GHz, stock voltage):
73 dregrees Celsius at 100% load
(instead of 92)
39 dregrees Celsius at 0% load (fan off)
(instead of 45)

According to my research and different experiments this combination is my actual optimum.
The cooler and more silent system supports my usage of voice recognition (using the internal mic).
Of cause later the voltage could be reduced using rmclock.....

Acer Aspire V15 Nitro :: Running Game And FPS Gradually Drop Until Laptop Shuts Down From Overheating

Mar 9, 2015

I've bought a new laptop 1 week ago, and it's running smooth with 1 exception: Everytime I shut the computer down or save energy, it magically forgets it has fans to cool cpu and graphics card. When i try to run a game it will gradually drop fps until it shuts down from overheating. I tried to fully discharge it and disconnect it from the battery to identify the hardware and then set it to standard in the bios, then it works. But the moment I shut down the computer it is the same thing over again. I don't want to do said process everytime I start my laptop..

Sony :: My Ultra Cool T350p Second Hard Drive Mod

Mar 2, 2009

Ok, so I really needed more hard drive space in my T350p, I am guessing alot of you are in the same boat I am and the machine is great if only it had more hard drive space.

Unfornately pretty much all the large drives are in either Zif or sata, so changing the internal drive was not going to get me much more space.

So, I looked at other options. I did not want to use an external, they are great and I have several of them, but it is just not as conveniant as having a large built in drive.....
