i purchased one compaq cq45-137tx in december. I guess it' similar to the dv4t models marketed in other countries.
there are couple of temperature issues with this lappy ( ambient temp 25-30C):
1. at idle ( just media player or maybe a pdf file open), the cpu temp is at 43C, northbridge always above 50, gpu always above 55.hd also tends to operate at 45-48C. this is inspite of the fact that i am running this thing with no vents blocked ..and in fact the RAM, cmos battery and hd covers removed to allow better air circulation.
2. at normal load ( game like burnout paradise, with utor going on in background), cpu tends to reach 60 C, gpu at 80 C , northbridge at 70C and hd at 60 C.
3. cpu temp never seem to change really. tried using various s/w' like realtemp ( shows 28 C for gpu..which i dont think is feasible). only when i reboot after a high load session, the s/w' show higher temperatures ( and the notebook shows erratic behavior with display artifacts!).
4. the only fan in the machine never appears to speed up or down. i don't have an issue with the noise, as long as it helps this thing run cooler.......
I bought my G505s in August 2013 and I'm only noticing now that it's been running pretty hot.I've been using several different programs to try to see and compare the temperatures of the quad core CPUs. I've also looked in many different fourm communities and have found this is not at all like the common overheating problems with the G505s. Others have experienced other heating problems when they play games, as their cores go to around 70C to 80C
"How so," you ask?Details and actions I've taken:
1. My temperatures soar to above 80C each when idle, and over 100 when doing light work. 2. BIOS and drivers have all been updated to the latest versions available for Windows 8.1 as per the Lenovo website. 3. I have never played games on the laptop, so I know the overheating is not because something related to that. 4. I cleaned my computer yesterday, although there was hardly any dust build up.
My temperature readings come from speccy, and hwmonitor.
My T410 with i5 520M and integrated graphics idles at about 70C when just browsing facebook. When I power up a program like photoshop or play a low intensity game like starcraft 1, my cpu spikes to about 100C. I have cleaned the fan many times, but I can't get the temperatures to go down. I'm out of warranty too ..... What should I do to make my computer actually usable? Btw these temperatures are measured from when I run TPfancontrol on disengaged at all times.
I checked the load, and the CPU indeed idles at 70C when at 0% - 1% load. I also get god awful 1.5 hour battery life on a 9 cell battery.
i have an older laptop (Acer Aspire 5100), Still works like new, but I was wondering what the average idle/ light usage temperatures are? Right now I'm getting a pretty solid temp reading at 45C, which I think it pretty good for a laptop. Anyone else have same/similar model (AMD D-C x64 TK-53 1.70 Ghz) that could give me there temps. Secondly I recently replaced the LCD and inverter. The inverter was for the orginal LCD but i got a matte screen instead of the glossy. I'm not sure whether it's always been like this since the original inverter, but i notice it get pretty warm over the plastic. I'm know there's quite a bit of voltage going through there, but it is it normal to get warm? (not burning temp, but noticeable hot/warm to the touch
There is something wrong with the XPS M1530. Almost every owner seems to have overheating problems and those that don't may just not realise it. It seems to happen amongst gamers. Is the overheating because we're gaming 'too much'? Should the XPS M1530 be able to cope? I have so many questions because I'm having my share of overheating problems...something which I recently feel is unavoidable...
After owning my laptop for 8 months, I only just started to monitor the temperatures after I was getting huge drops in fps while gaming after a length of time as well as some artifacting.
On the 15/12/08 which is just over 2 weeks ago I had my motherboard and heatsink/fan replaced because of the following high temperatures I would get when playing games.
After, they were replaced I played some COD4 for 30 mins or so and got the following temperatures. When I saw these temps, I thought "Awesome, my temps are finally normal".
On the 22nd, 1 week after the replacement, I monitored my temperatures as I played TF2 for an hour. As you can see, there was a increase in my max temperatures and at this point, I wondered if maybe the temps will slowly become high again.
Another week later, yesterday on the 30th, I once again monitored my temps and played L4D for 20 mins or so to find that my temps have yet again risen but this time quite a bit more.
Alright so the question is, what the hec is going on with the XPS M1530 and why do the temperatures just keep going up even after getting a new motherboard and heatsink/fan!?!? Seriously, in just two weeks, my temps have risen by as much as 10 degrees celcius! Is this some kind of hardware failure or is this normal? Is it the thermal paste that's melting away or what? What could be going wrong?
This question pertains to all laptops but since I'm running a m1710, I hope its OK to post it here.
I have 6MB down DSL at my place. I was running it thru a Netgear RangeMax Wireless Router (WPN824). In my laptop, I have a Gigabyte GN-WI01GT (mini) PCI-E WLAN card. When everything was running smoothly, I noticed that my connection "speed" was fluctuating between 54Mbps and 108Mbps. My first question is: how do I maintain the 108Mbps speed?
With my wireless adapter, I had initially let Vista install the drivers. Then I had the bright idea of going to the Gigabyte site and getting their latest drivers. I did this because it seemed like I was always on 54MBps and no longer jumped to 108Mbps. Ever since I updated my drivers, my router hasn't been working and needs to be set up again. I found this to be pretty strange.
Also, my interet isn't as fast as it was on day 1. Is this normal for DSL? Or is there something on my laptop degrading the connection? Is that even possible?
I haven't gotten around to reconfiguring my router but I did uninstall my wireless adapter and let Vista find the drivers. Would you guys recommend this process or using Gigabyte's drivers?
i usually leave my laptop on my desk, which is about 6 in. away from the window. lately, gpu temp has hit a low of 32 c, core temps of 16 c. i need to know if this is a dangerously low temperature to operate the computer. if i should move the desk or laptop or what.
The bottom of the computer is hot to the touch and the fans are blowing out hot air. I cleaned all fans and heat sink vents. also re applied all thermal paste on the cpu and gpu. Im concerned because my motherboard and gpu were just replaced yesterday for heat issues i believe. havent figured out if the heat was the cause or not. the temps were the same as there now with the new motherboard and gpu .....
I noticed that when idle the temperature slowly goes up to 65C, then the fan kicks in, lowers it to 45 and stops. The temperature goes up again and in about 2 minutes it is already 65 again. The process repeats indefinitely.
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,
While in use, the XPS 12 is usually fairly cool and quiet through normal operation. It spins up if in heavy use of course. This is whether on AC or battery power.
However, if the machine sits there and goes to idle, the fan spins up like crazy and the bottom warms up to. This is for hours and hours at a time - often if I leave the machine at night and come back in the morning this is the case.
I thought it might be some process that starts running when the machine is idle and away, but if I leave Task Manager open there isn't any disk or CPU activity that would indicate that happening.
I just got the xps 1640 today and I'm very distracted by the loud system fan. It's audible all the time even when the computer is idle. I haven't been doing anything intensive on my computer either. The fan starts as soon as windows loads and never stops. I know this laptop has heat issues but I checked the core temp and it is only between 38-45degrees C. I know the fan can get louder under load, this is what I would describe as idle but still, it seems way too loud. It was raining earlier and I could hear the fan over the sound of raindrops hitting my roof. It's getting unbearable!!
Has anyone had the same experience? Or more importantly does anyone have a way to reduce the speed of the fan slighty? Speedfan doesn't seem to support my motherboard so I can't do it there.

My 1530 has recently been overheating when left idle for a while(30 min or so). When I come back I find that the fans stop working, the system overheats and the laptop restarts with blazing temperatures.
In order to turn the fans back on, I have to shutdown the laptop and then switch it back on
Just got new Latitude E6520 and fan seems to never shut off. Left side of laptop always hot even when computer is idle. I can hear fan being constantly on. Is it enough to raise support request or what do I do?
I've owned my M1330 for a few months now, and have been very happy with it. But today, all of the sudden, things changed. I understand that a fan speeds up when a laptop gets hot, but this is not the case here.
All of the sudden today, this started happening: The fan is always on (around 3000rpm). However, the temperatures are usually low (CPU:38-50 , GPU:47-49). The laptop doesn't even get hot.
I've already cleaned the dust out of the the fans/vents, just in case.
I recently purchased a M170 with 6800 Ultra off ebay and have been using it for the past week or so. During this time, I have noticed that the temps get quite high when running graphic intensive applications. I currently have an e1705 with a 7900GTX installed so I am familiar with the heat dissipated from a high end graphics card but the M170 seems to get very hot in comparison to my e1705. I am not sure what are considered high temps so I will just post my readings from I8kfan (these are the peak temps):
I am using Dell Inspiron 15, Model 3520. I bought laptop in January 2013 and its started giving this kind of error.
When I am using it continuously its working fine , when i go away from system(kept idle for sometime) it gets shutdown. So I need to re-login and it closes all the application which i was using before shutdown.
I already did some initial checks like scanning entire system for virus(i hardly have any data on system) and Dell online PC Check which passes all the test.
I just got a refurbished E7440. Before booting into an OS (e.g. staying in BIOS or at the boot menu), and after booting into Ubuntu, the fan is always on high and never stop (even when the CPU is idle at 40 degree C)). I also have an E6420 and an E6440, have never seen this behavior on them.
I see both BIOS A06 and A07 has "thermal control" listed as enhancement. Updated the BIOS to A06, A07, then A08, still have the same problem in all of them.
Is this expected for all E7440s or just mine? What can I do to make the fan be "on-demand" (without using Windows)?
i have encountered another bug aside from gpu boost issue, which is currently still unresolved. Fan speed control is not going idle on 7720 SE, even when temps are very low (below 40c)... on A12 BIOS, I have to restart my laptop to be able to switch to FAN Idle speed again. These are temps iam having and fans are still on.
i'd like to know what kind of temps to expect from a normally working card.
What are your temps on idle (normal room temp 20c-30c) and what are the max temp it reaches when say we run the ati tool graphical view. (Just for reference - when idle, ATI Tool reports 65c on my card, and after running the 3d view of ati tool the card will reach 104c).
I'd like everyone who has that info to post it here and i'll do the math and calculate the avarage working temp of that card.
Since different monitoring progs report different tempratures please state which program is reporting the temps.
Well people in my country is summer, and from some days (4-5 days) my Studio 1535 has annoying for me HDD and GPU temperatures.
I will attach old picture and current picture and you can compare the temperatures. Plus the fan stays on higher speed and it just don't want to turn itself back to normal light speed mode, I guess because high HDD and GPU temperatures.
