I've recently received my dell studio 1749 laptop with the following specs,
- i5 CPU 520m
- 4 gigs of RAM
- Intel HD graphics
- 320 gig HD
The problem with this laptop is that the fan will start to whine every few minutes seemly without reason.
I've done some investigation and found out the following:
- there seems be a threshold of 35 to 36 degrees celsius. Once the CPU hits that temperature, the fan will start to cool it down to under 30 degrees
- the idle temperature of the CPU is always creeping up, even without load. If I leave the computer alone at idle with almost no CPU activity, the temperature will creep up to the threshold...thus triggering fan.
the cycle repeats itself every few minutes.
I've attached a picture to illustrate the problem.
Since this is my first laptop, I want to ask does the CPU temperature stay constant during idle? or does it creep up like mine?
I'm a fairly advanced computer user (CS degree, etc), but I've had a horrible time trying to find a reasonably priced laptop that will run a 30" external monitor at 2560x1600. I finally decided if a an output other than DVI-D would work. I found the XPS 16 which looked like a really sexy laptop, and I checked to see that the the 4670 supports 2560x1600 in theory, and that the DisplayPort to DVI-D would work in theory. I found two other posters on a non-computer forum who said they ran 2560x1600 off an XPS 16.
I tried to verify with Dell that DisplayPort would support 2560x1600 with a DisplayPort to DVI-D adapter. I finally found a sales person that sounded reasonably intelligent, and had him contact tech support to verify that it would do so.
So, I started my XPS 16 a little over 24 hours ago, and the the reported resolution from the monitor is 1280x800, and I haven't found a way to override that in Catalyst. (and no, I wouldn't be happy with using a 1080p 12xx by xxxx resolution)
I've spent over an hour on the phone with tech support and can't get anyone that even seems to comprehend the issue (Are you sure your monitor supports that resolution? Is it turned on? Has it worked before at that resolution? etc.)
I THINK an issue is that the monitor is seeing the connection as single link DVI and so only reporting 1280x800, but I don't know....
I recently got a Studio 17" WUXGA screen and as i was testing out my computer and following Les's removal bloatware guide [big thanks] and reading many of the posts in the Studio owners thread I tried to identify my screen.
I just bought a Dell Studio XPS 16 second hand, advertised with an RGBLED screen.
The laptop works great but I am very sceptical about this display, all the reviews harp on about how amazing it looks but I can't really see much of a difference between this screen and my WLED monitor.
My laptop is dell studio 1450.display is broken and drivers corrupted.i use a external moniter. power on button pressed the led's on.but external disply didn't show anythig.How to Run BIOS via external screen?
I recently just purchased and received a fancy Dell e6400 from one of the many dell deals. My eyes are light sensitive from looking at many computer screens over the years and due to this I avoid LCD screens and much prefer flat CRT monitors. My goal is to use the e6400 as my workstation computer while using the VGA out to power my 19in Sony CRT .....
i dissasembled my presario cq60 and when i put it together the monitor won't activate.
i tried using an external monitor and the monitor refused to turn on from standby, a safety feature of the monitor. the small card in the underneath with 2 wires leading 2 the monitor, (i assume that is the laptop version of a graphics card) is fine, inserted properly, and i had a slight issue with the plugs fitting, but that was soon resolved.
I have an HP DV 6000T. I just bought a HP Elite M9510f Desktop from HP.com, and I don't have a monitor yet, so I am trying to connect my Desktop VGA to my Laptop VGA in and use my DV6000T as a monitor.
I also have a Sharp TV which I tried using as a monitor but the thing keeps flashing the Power and OPC lights and won't let me see anything.
Anyway I can make my Laptop monitor work with my desktop for the time being?
My current CPU temp is around 61 degrees C with the CPU load @ 100%. I clean it petty often and I just recently (around 2 months ago) applied silver compound to the heatsink. Even though the fan is on, how come it will not go faster than "slow"? I can set it to high, but why doesn't it do it automatically? Is this normal for my 9300?
Basically I've been messing around with the OCing of my CPU since I've finally got all my temperature issues sorted. Firstly, I notice that my CPU temps at times are erratic, jumping/falling up to 10C at a time. Is this normal?
Secondly, my CPU temps after a short gaming session were CPU1: 66C/ CPU2: 80C This seems a bit strange to me. Does anyone know why CPU2 might be so much warmer?
Thirdly, related to the above, is 80C @ 3.4GHz good, bad or average? If I was running at 80C for hours can I expect this to do any damage? I know the CPU can handle up to 105C, however that doesn't mean something below can't cause damage. Confirmation on this would be great :-)
I have had my XPS M1530 for about 13 months now, never had a problem with it so far, however I am getting a little worried about some of the temperatures over the past few days.
I have been playing Fallout 3 and Anno 1404 a fair amount for the past week or two everything seems good, however my temperatures seem to be getting a fair bit higher than they were a couple of months back (May-ish) when I last spent a good amount of time looking at temperatures.
For example I played Anno1404 for about 3 hours on Saturday followed by 4 hours of Fallout 3 and the CPUs got to the high 80s and the GPU touched 95C! THM_ (from HWMonitor) hit 100C!
Now obviously I'm a little worried, it was pretty warm when I was playing (25C), but the thing that baffles me the most is that this has only been happening over the past week or so, before then my CPU rarely broke 80C and the GPU 85C. There also seems to be a loudish 'click' from the HDD when I turn off the laptop when it has been on for a fair while, again, this has only happened over the past few days.
I do have a question about the CPU temperature. I'm using CPUID HArdware Monitor (under 32bit Vista)to monitor the temperature and I am pretty concerned about constantly working fan (even when the cpu temperature is under 50 C).
The threshold under which the system goes dead silent is 44-46 C. Is that normal?
I`ve bought a M1530 in december, it was fine till february when the termal paste had become bad the temps were at about 50 C idle and 80 on load, I replaced it with MX2 Arcgic Cooling and went 8-10 C lower. But Everest and other software detect AUX Temp?
Idle 60- on load 100C and the temp from 100C drops down in a seconds to 60C when I switch from Counter-Strike to Desktop. My question is what is this AUX and should I be worried. It looks like a component with bad cooling.
I'm in a bit of a jiffie, my 1330 had some problems with overheating so I formatted but it turned out it was a piece of dirt stuck in the fan, anyways problem solved.
Now, I get the slowdowns again, albeit not that severe. Now, when I open hwmonitor it only shows my CPU, HDD and ACHP. The GPUs temp won't show up.
I installed ntune, nada, same thing. What could be the problem, is the temperature measuring thingy broken I'm kind of worried that my 8400m gs is dying on me since it was a pos to begin with but I really dont feel like sending in my laptop.
This is probably the one hundred and second thread on this subject, but after searching for similar threads, I just couldn't get a straight answer.
The temperature of my Geforce Go 7950 GTX reaches almost 100 degress celsius (97 to be exactly, but I'm pretty sure if I let the stress-test run for a couple of more minutes it'll get that hot).
I don't have a problem with this, but since this is my second videocard (the first one died after three years, I guess due to overheating issues), I would like to know if I may expect this to happen again.
So, for all of the M1710 owners out here: what are your GPU temperatures after stressing it for, let's say 10 minutes, with Furmark (stresses your GPU really really hard)?
Please mention them in celsius, and with what program you read out the temps (some programs, like i8kfanGUI deducts 8 degrees of the real temperature).
So I know this program basically tortures your graphics card but how hot should it get on a stability test in 'Xtreme Burning Mode'? I just had my motherboard/GPU replaced so I am running some tests. After a few minutes of this test it reaches 90 degrees celcius. Isnt that crazy hot?
can some 1 tell me wts the temperature for the M1710 with 512 MB 7950 GTX please ,,cause i just upgrade to it and i dont now whts gonna be and please tell me which program (am using 2 programs I8KfanGUI and NVTemplogger)
I have problem with my Dell M4400 it very hot (CPU temp ~ 50C), my system - Q9100, FX770 etc. I think have problem with heatsink systems. What I do? Perhaps, some people have Portable M4400 with CUP like me (Q9100 or QX9300). If some people have this CPU help me, please. Which serial number heatsink you have in your portable systems with CPU Q9100 or QX9300. I must change it but I don`t know serial number.
this isnt 1 of those heat issue threads, im just looking for advice. Just want to say i love the notebook and would like to take care of it.
i do mostly surfing, chatting and tunes but theres also work and gaming. Regular temps run around 50c and im not to worried about that. during work (but mostly gaming) it goes up to 68c. This is all with a cooling pad and mini fan blowing at it .....
It seems that everybody who owns an XPS M1530 has an extremely varied set of temperatures for their GPU and CPU. Now, I am a complete freak about my temps, constantly checking them and always worried they are too high. I scour the notebook review pages looking for a benchmark set of temps, but everyone either has overheating problems warranting a nice replacement (CPU 80+ GPU 90+), or they have chilled out systems that sound very cool (CPU< 69 GPU
TEMPERATURES - CPU Min/Max Idle - GPU Min/Max Idle
- CPU Min/Max Load (running ORTHOS, which can be downloaded here: [url] - GPU Min/Max Load ( running rthdribl, which can be downloaded here: [url]
- Whether you were watching your temperatures in real time, or relied on a temperature report. (I suggest everyone does both and reports both results)
SOFTWARE - The program you used to get these readings (I suggest everyone uses the latest version of HWMoniter) - Power Setting in Vista (I suggest everyone uses High Performance) - Bios Revision (I suggest people use the latest revision) - Video Driver Version (Found in system information in the Nvidia control panel, state wether it is a modded, Dell M1530 or Dell non-M1530 driver)
SYSTEM: - CPU Model and Speed (Txxxx, xGHz) - Hard Drive Speed - GPU Clock ("stock" otherwise write your clock speeds) - 9v or 6v battery
Physical Ajustments - Notebook Cooler (if yes, then write the model) - Thermal Paste (if yes, what type?) - Airflow and Surface (What type of surface is the laptop on? Have you propped it up to simulate a 9v battery? How high?) - Ambient Room Temperature (If you can report these in degrees C, otherwise state your location and time of year with a general statement whether it is cold or hot)
I recently received a new m4400 (with a T9400)and had a problem with one of the cpu cores running 6-8 degrees hotter at idle (not under load). When I told this to Dell technical support, they reordered me a new notebook.
Here's the problem... I received my new replacement notebook. Although the cpu cores are now the exact same temperature at idle, once I start running some programs (simulation games, etc.), one of the cpu cores runs 7-8 degrees consistantly hotter than the other one. If I stop playing these games, both cores return to the exact same temperature .....
