Dell :: Is This Normal Temperature For My XPS M1730?
Oct 11, 2009
Lately I've been busy and haven't played a whole lot of games. Just the other week I notice my GPU temps went up on ilde. The fan would kick in ,to stablized the temp around 75 degrees then drop to 60 or so. The temperature just keeps climbing up till it maxed at around 75 degrees.
Iv'e already went and bought some air can blowers and blow all that dust and lints out. I even ensure it's clean by shining a flash light thur the top of the fans and look thur the vents to see if I can see the fan blades. All is clear but I'm still having then same issues. When I ran games such as RE5 it gets really hot sometimes reaching 95 degrees.
My palms sometimes starts to burn anyone encounter such act? Wondering if there's anything else I can do before calling DELL support!
i got my motherboard replaced today, the idle temperature is the same like before around 65--70 'C.
but i never tested the temp when i m gaming with previous motherboard. and i did with the new one, the max temp i got was 104'C O_O normal? when i quite the game was 96'C and 5 min later it returned to 70
the notebook is m1330, the game was warcraft III, AC connected
can someone post their m1330 temperature after playing half hour game?
I need to check the normal operating temperature for the Dell Latitude E7440. My fan is constantly on and the air coming out the side vent is extremely hot. I have installed a temperature app and with basic use (windows 8.1 and 2 or 3 apps open) the core 0 and core 1 of the processor are running between 85 and 90 degrees Celsius. When plugged into power, the fan is permanently on high speed. I don't know if this is normal. I dont understand why it is getting so hot, i have the i7, 8GB, 256GB SSD, so literally no moving parts to generate heat. My battery (47Wh) drains very quickly as well, 2 1/2 hours max.
I bought the unibody MacBook some weeks ago, probably nearing a month now. And I'd like to perhaps get some answers on some things that have been bothering me a little here and there. I've called AppleCare but they almost always tell me to bring my MacBook down somewhere to have a look at it, and that is not a very viable option. Unless it of course is something major.
1. What is the normal temperature for a MacBook running say Firefox with maybe 5+ tabs open and a video streaming in one of those tabs? Along with maybe aMSN and Pages. Before I had SMCFancontrol running, with power attached it would run at or between 55~61 degrees celsius or so. Currently with SMCFancontrol running, it runs at about 45~51 celsius but the fans are working doubly hard.
While running games on my Win XP partition, it gets hot, sometimes if I put it on my lap for a second or two, it almost feels like the surface could scald me. But I guess that's because I'm running games.
2. Is it more advisable to have the battery out or in if when I'm at home and using just the power adapter?
Applecare has advised that I leave it in all the time, but I'm not entirely convinced on this. Macs aren't PCs but most if not all of the people I know that use PCs have the battery out all the time and only plug it back in when they need it.............
I have a Lenovo Yoga 13 with an Intel i5-3337U. I noticed that it seems to be getting a lot hotter recently (touch wise), and so I installed coretemp on the ultrabook to find out what the idle temperature is.It seems to average out 47C idle.I was wondering if this is the average idle temp for this model process/laptop.
Well i'm about to order a fully Loaded XPS 1330, but i'm confused on wether to get the Slim or the normal LCD.Which one is better?? and If I choose the normal lcd will it differ in weight?? and what's the actual weight of this laptop?
Finally, is this laptop worth the cash or shall I go for the Macbook?? I prefer the XPS due to the better video card.
When idle, my harddrive makes a very faint clicking noise. By "clicking", I mean the same sound it makes when it is loading something... you know, that "tik tik tik" noise.
However, when idle, it tends to make little "tik" noises every 2/3 seconds or so.
Now, according to the internet, clicking means my HD is about to die... but having looked on youtube, by clicking people mean very loud clicking, like i was turning a light switch on and off...
Now I don't know. Is "access" clicking every few seconds normal? Or should i get my hd replaced??
To clarify, the clicking i am experiencing is no louder than the clicking you hear when ur HD is accessing information. If I used HDParm and play with the settings, the clicking sounds becomes almost impossible to hear and less frequent.
I thought I would check how long the battery hold out on my new studio 15, which I got two days ago. Surprisingly, only roughly about an hour. Is this normal? When I just unplug the power cord, it says 3 hours.. and then the remaining time of the battery dropped quickly inpproportionate to the physical time past. The whole time I was just surfing the internet, IMing and playing music. The battery is 56 WHr 6-cell Lithium Ion Primary Battery.
Just got my E6400 with the LED WXGA+ (1440X900) screen. My first reaction is what a hell! I got these lines on the screen, its almost as its only displaying every second line or something.
Maybe its the display drivers.. so i start testing different drivers but no luck, it wont change. See below for example:
Should it be like this? Do I miss the right drivers? My monitory sais General PnP, not any specific.. I'm using windows 7 x64. If its hard to see the vertical lines let me know and i'll try to get better pics.
I have a Dell Latitude D800 I bought in Summer 2003. I've never really used it away from a power outlet in almost six years of ownership, aside from one time a few weeks ago - when the battery died within 15-20 minutes of powerwing on.
Is it normal for a six year old notebook battery to not hold a charge, even if it's never really been used, and has just been plugged into power (or shut down) constantly throughout the bulk of that time?
My i9400 died last Tuesday. While sitting idle on a marble topped end table the fans went wide open for 15 seconds and then it just turned off. Not shut down, just dead. I went to bed figuring this must have been an overheat protection shutdown and tried to crank it up the next day and nothing. Hit the power button and the green light blips once and thats it.
I have the top of the line warranty and next day service so Dell came out 2 days later (not next day but close enough at first) and replaced the MB and fans. This got us nowhere. He gets on the phone with Dell and they send another MB and Processor as well for the next day.
Visit two with another MB and new processor produced nothing again. The field tech (pretty knowledgeable) said that this would have to go back to dell and that I needed to call them.
So I call them and they say that a third visit would be required I said fine send whoever, this thing is not coming back to life and my business is being severely hampered by this notebook being down. They try to re-diagnose over the phone and corectly come to the conclusion (again) that the computer is toast.
My problem is this: They finally conceded to me returning this $4000 brick to them but I could not get a i9400 loaner overnighted to throw my HD in to get back up. I've got my HD out and in an external enclosure but this really slows things down finding files and loading apps on another computer that is already slower to start with.
I've got a business to run and it is running slower with this laptop being down. I was told by Dell it would take 2 days to get a box to return the computer in and then 5-8 days to repair it and then shipping after that. An exchange would be up to 2 weeks total turnaround time...........
I currently have a dell xps 17 laptop. It will not switch on properly.
When I power it on, the lights flash on as normal, and some of the fans appear to start (although the side fan does not appear to work). The cd drive will open when I press the button, and the touch buttons light up on contact as normal.
However, the screen does not switch on at all. The laptop will stay on but nothing will happen. The side fan does not appear to be working either (i cant hear it, and that area gets VERY hot when plugged in).
I am currently on holiday and do not have an hdmi cable to test it on an external display (though I could maybe buy one).
I have tried fully charging and depleting the battery, I have tried removing and reinserting the coin cell battery and the memory.
I got my E6400 + regular dock few weeks ago. I'm working with Windows 7 64bit. When the dock is connected and I'm transfer files from computer in my network to the E6400.. The fan start work at full power and it's very annoying
