Dell XPS 15 L521x :: Gets Too Hot When Gaming - Fans Go Crazy / Laptop Starts Beeping

Oct 8, 2012

Brand new laptop idles at 55° C, but at least the fans are quiet.   Casual web browsing, listening to music, and/or downloading files and cpu temp rises to mid 70° C and the fan starts humming pretty noticeably.  If I try to do any gaming, PC hits 85°+ C, fans go crazy,  and the laptop starts beeping.  I really like this laptop, but I need it to be able to handle my day to day activities.

Dell XPS L521X :: Making Clicking And Beeping Sounds When Watching Video

Dec 7, 2014

My computer will (most of the time when a browser is open, it seems to happen most frequently when I'm watching a video) begin making clicking and beeping sounds. I'm able to switch tabs and sound will play from the videos for about 20 seconds. After that the screen will freeze (I won't be able to switch tabs or close anything). I usually try to open task manager, but even that isn't an option. After waiting for my computer to shake itself out of this state, I hard shut down and then reboot. The computer has only "shaken" out of this state 2-3 times in 30 total occurrences.

Dell XPS 15 L521x :: GPU Too Hot When Gaming - Decreased Performance

Apr 28, 2013

I have a Dell XPS 15 (L521x) laptop. While gaming my GPU heats up to temperatures ranging from 73 to 77 degrees Celsius (NOTE: This is with a CM Storm SF-19 cooling pad). 

My question is how else can I reduce this heat because I know as it gets hotter it throttles back to avoid crashing, thus decreasing performance.

Here are specs of everything:Model - Dell XPS 15 (L521x)OS- Windows 7 64-bitCPU - Intel Core i7-3632QMBIOS - A13 (Up to date)SSD - 128GB (OS is on this, 30GB free)HDD - 1TB (300GB free)RAM - 16GBGPU - Nvidia GT 640MDrivers for EVERYTHING (including my graphics card) are up to date.CM Storm SF-19 Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad with two 140mm Turbine Fans (1200-2600 RPM's, I always keep it at max blast)

Using software program, Open Hardware Monitor (and having my cooling pad on max blast), I have retrieved the following data:~ My CPU idles around 60 degrees Celsius and can max around 70 degrees Celsius~ My GPU idles around 44 degrees Celsius and can max around 77 degrees CelsiusMy room temperature varies from 10-20 degrees Celsius (50-65 degrees Fahrenheit)I had this laptop since July of 2012 and I had just had my motherboard swapped (GPU was integrated), heat sink re-seated, and cleaned of dust (wasn't really any in there). It was under warranty (and still is).

Dell XPS L521X :: Laptop Resuming From Standby Automatically

Jan 10, 2015

I have a DELL XPS L521X running Windows 10 technical preview.

I have been having an issue for a while that the computer automatically resumes from standby at seemingly random times. As of late, it is also staying on indefinitely (or until a low battery event at least), despite my settings in Power Options that specify standby after a given amount of time.

This happens when it is plugged in or not, and is (of course) particularly annoying when it is unplugged and in a case that isn't ventilated.

I have checked the system and application event logs, and don't see the kernel-power event when the system resumed, but I don't see any information on why it did so.

Also worth noting: I checked my LAN and WIFI adapter power management settings, and the "allow this device to wake the computer" box is greyed out.

specifically what hardware or software is causing a resume event? Do you know how to ensure that the computer sleeps after a specified period of time when on battery?

Dell :: New Laptop Fans = Quieter

Sep 12, 2007

So I've had my XPS Gen 2 which I've taken good care of for about 3 years now. Lately, I've been paying a bit more attention to my fan noise. It seems louder than when I first got the laptop, could be just me. And I know it can't be the infamous core2duo motherboard problem that the new laptops have since this is a 2.26 Pentium M.

So I'm wondering if replacing the two fans with brand new ones would minimize the fan noise and maybe even help with cooling (not that the current ones aren't doing their jobs). What do you guys think? And if you do suggest that buying new fans will solve noise problems or lessen noise problems, what is the part number? Or, is there a good alternative to buy the fans? (Ebay is a bit shaky since you get cheap imitations sometimes, but hey, it could work.)

Dell :: Aftermarket Laptop Fans For M1710?

Jan 1, 2009

I originally bought my XPS with the 7900 GTX but after having memory parity errors constantly happen after a year of ownership, Dell Support replaced my memory 4-5 times (errors in memtest86 on all new replacement ram.

After finally getting a good set of refurbished ram, the problems continued to happen. So after another call with tech support, they decided to replace my motherboard.

The motherboard was replaced and the problems still continued to happen. Eventually I realised it was the video card so we got that replaced (Luckily they upgraded me to 7950 GTX) and the problems went away.

Ok, so now 3-4 years of ownership and the problem occassionally happens when I play intensive games again...

My 3 year warrenty has ended so I don't exactly want to buy another video card.

I have the Notepal laptop cooler with aftermarket higher CFM fans then what came with the unit and if I turn that on when playing games it doesn't happen but sometimes I forget and parity error.

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 :: Replacing Laptop Fans, And General Cooling Tips For D830

Aug 20, 2009

I'd like to replace the fan in my laptop (Dell's Latitude d830) with a faster/better one. From what I've seen, most people seem to think that this is impossible.

I, however, find this hard to believe that Dell would have included the only possible fan that's compatible with this laptop, or that this particular fan is the best possible cooling option.

Why is it so hard to upgrade in the first place? I'm sure it can be done, I've opened up my laptop a few times in the past and it's not exactly rocket science .....

Dell Inspiron 3520 :: Laptop Has Dark Screen And Beeping?

Jan 19, 2015

Have Inspiron 3520 with W8 - daughter has infected it via Minecraft update.  Original issue was dark screen and beeping, 8 at a time.  Put on a external monitor and am going through the long process of digging out the bugs with anti-virus and malware removal programs.

Question is this - how can I stop the infernal beeping?  It starts up if I insert the power cord or disconnect/connect the external monitor.  Is there any way to silence it?

Dell XPS 15 L502x :: Laptop Overheating - CPU Temperature Starts At 50C And Rises Consistently

Dec 3, 2012

Essentially the issue is that the cpu temperature starts at 50C and rises consistently to around 79C on IDLE. GPU is around 55-60. This continues until eventually the computer shuts off for safety reasons. Needless to say, no strenuous activities can happen on this computer. (games, etc.)

Things I've done:

-Updated the chipset, both video drivers (nvidia and intel), and the bios
-Opened up the entire thing and cleaned out the fan and any other areas that had dust (which was little). 
-Removed the original thermal compound and reapplied a fresh and appropriate layer to the GPU AND CPU

Specs:

Windows 7 Professional, ACPI x64-based PC
Intel Core i7-2630QM CPU @ 2.00 GHz
Intel HD Graphics 3000
NVIDIA GeFore GT 525M

Dell :: D620 Display Pixels Going Crazy

Mar 10, 2009

I picked up a dell D620 notebook second hand. I did a fresh install of the OS, installed and updated all drivers. I noticed there was some pixels that were going crazy.

There would be a line across the start bar, and a block of miscolored pixels on the bootup screen. If I booted into safe mode, they would not be there. Also, when the notebook is hooked to an external display, they will show on the laptop, but not on the external LCD

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 .....

Dell Inspiron 14R N4110 :: Touch-pad Going Crazy Every Time Using Mouse

Mar 27, 2012

I have an Inspiron 14R N4110 (bought 6 months ago) and recently the touchpad has been going crazy everytime I am using the mouse. It flicks back and forth between abling and disabling the touchpad, so much that I am unable to use the mouse because it continually engages and disengages. Some times it can happen 30 times in 1 minute. I went into the mouse properties and disabled the touchpad altogether but it still keeps doing it. I have run the diagnostic from the Dell site and downloaded all the required drivers, but nothing is working.

Dell :: I Know XPS16 Isn't A 'gaming' Laptop, But How Bad/good Is It?

Jul 3, 2009

Can it still play all the new games and the games that will come out in the next few years at a good resolution and framerate? What about 3d?

Also, this might be a stupid question, but hey, you never know until you ask: the XPS16 excels as a "media" laptop, what does that exactly mean?

Also, XPS has the best available screen on a laptop currently right? If so, doesn't/should that help it out in the gaming category?

Finally, I am considering the XPS16, or the Macbook Pro 17'. Which has better display and can someone list the pros and cons of each?

I get the same problem if i switch to integrated graphics (from setup).....

Acer :: Aspire One Making Some CRAZY Sounds When Starting Up

Feb 23, 2009

When I start-up or resume from sleep my AAO often makes an extremely loud noise like the fan is trying to run but is having trouble. It almost sounds like it is revving up. It will do it two or three times then stop. It usually doesn't do it during normal use--only when I'm trying to start-up or resume.

Acer :: 6920g Laptop Down Throttling When Gaming

I am experiencing a problem with my 6920g laptop throttling down when playing games when the heat increases eg. GTA IV.

I've already tried just using RM-Clock Utility and setting it for max performance but yet it still clocks down with heat increase.

Ive seen an excellent guide on here for lowering the voltage of my laptop so would this help with gaming (as well as the general running of the laptop)

HP DV7-6c90us Lockups :: Laptop Shuts Down Randomly While Gaming

Aug 9, 2014

So recently my laptop started randomly shutting off while I was gaming, I assumed it was the graphics card so I tried to use the intel hd graphics and disable the amd hd graphics to see if that would solve the issue, however it still happened. One thing I noticed is that now when I disable that graphics card the resolution is odd and the letters won't be as clear, I'm guessing this means it may be a motherboard issue.I moved on to thinking it was overheating due a fan problem, I bought a new thermal module for it and the same thing still happens.

I did the reset procedure (removed the battery and ac, pressed the power button for 60secs) and it still happened. I tried with a new battery and charger, same still happens.Lately it doesn't happen just while gaming, it will randomly shut down and once it does, sometimes it will shut down again and again before it even boots up, after a while it may boot up or may shut down again.It's really random and I cannot find a pattern....

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.
