Dell :: XPS M1710 GPU & CPU Temps At Idle?
My dell xps m1710 temps at idle are
CPu 54C To 58C
GPU 54C To 58C
Is that okay?
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 .....

Apple :: Windows 7 Temps Vs Windows Vista Temps
i set up this thread to compare the temps between windows 7 and windows vista. i googled for it but there's no comparison chart. please feel free to contribute.
under load: 77-85
under load: 70-80
i see that windows 7 runs noticeably cooler than windows vista. Please post your details so that other users can have an idea about what to choose if they decide to bootcamp windows.
Dell :: Xps 1340 Temp Goes Up When Idle
I have a Dell XPS 1340, P8700, 9500M GS.
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.
Dell :: Why Is My Laptop Running So Hot Idle
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 :: XPS 1530 Idle Temp
i was reading a few other posts about idle temps of the GPU in the XPS 1530 and my temps are way above what everyone else is getting.
I have an idle GPU temp of approx 80-88 degrees celsius. I mean i could maybe expect that under a heavy load, but an idle temp??? The fan seems to be on all the time.
Dell :: XPS 1640 Load System Fan Even When Idle
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.

Dell :: Laptop Overheats When Left Idle
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
Dell :: M4400 Ethernet Adapter Disconnects When Idle On AC Power
If I leave my M4400 idle with Windows (Vista Ultimate 32-bit) locked and the screensaver on for any length of time (e.g. 20 minutes), then the network card goes into power-saving mode even while on AC power, reducing the connection speed from 1Gbps to 100Mbps. I can see this because the colour of the LED on the port changes. The reduction in speed causes a brief disconnection from the network. When I unlock Windows, there is another brief disconnection as it reverts to 1Gbps, and this causes instant messaging applications to log out.
If I go to the Link Speed tab on the network card's properties in Device Manager and force it to 1Gbps instead of Auto Negotiation, it warns me that power-saving features will be disabled, but then I don't experience the problem and it never disconnects. "Reduce link speed during battery operation" is unticked, but this should not apply to AC power anyway. I've tried upgrading the driver to 18.104.22.168, A01 (released on 24/02/2009) but the problem still happens.
Does anyone else experience this?
Dell :: M1530 Screen Left Side Dimming When Idle
I've had my M1530 for about 5 months and in the last few days and have had a problem with the screen.
Twice in the last 3-4 days I have come home from work to find the left hand side of the screen substantially dimme(darker.
The screen was left on regular settings, no screen saver etc. Within 5 minutes of use the left hand side of the screen had returned to normal brightness..
HP/Compaq :: High Idle/under Load Temperatures
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.......
Dell :: Quiet And Cool. Thermal Paste Replaced! 38@idle 73@load
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.....
Dell :: Studio 1555 Users: Do You Have A TRUE Stable Idle Temp?
My Idle temp seems to be within the range of:
27C-43C for CPU
44C-51C for GPU
These are temps when I'm not even doing anything. The fan activates when the GPU hits 51C and stops when the GPU temp reaches 44C. The CPU doesn't seem to be a factor in activating the fan.
Use I8Kfangui to see your CPU and GPU temps. Just don't click on AUtomatic Fan Control because that will severely lag your system until you turn it off. http://www.diefer.de/i8kfan/index.html
Acer :: Aspire 5100 - What The Average Idle/ Light Usage Temperatures Are
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
Acer :: 1810t Abnormal Idle Power Consumption After X264 Video
Just got my new 1810t delivered today. Mine is the one with the SU4100.
Notice that at idle it goes to 5.5-6w. Great. After anything intensive I do it always drops down to that level. However, when i watch DXVA x264 accelerated video in MPC or WMP, i notice that after quitting my idle power consumption jumps an average of two watts. The only way to get back to normal idle power consumption is by putting the laptop into sleep mode, then waking it back up again.
Watching the same x264 video in VLC which does not support DXVA doesnt result in the increase in idle power consumption.
Watching DXVA accelerated youtube HD content with flash 10.1 doesnt increase power consumption either.
Running the latest (22.214.171.124.1986) video drivers, but the same problem was present on the stock drivers that came with the laptop. Version of those drivers was unknown. Wattage was measured using both batterymon, and batterybar.
Dell :: Dell Inspiron - Monitor To Shut Off After 1 Minute Of Being Idle
when i first got my dell inspiron and it was all good. when i set the monitor to shut off after 1 minute of being idle, it did and would not turn on unless someone moved the mouse of pressed a button. however, after i reformatted, the computer monitor would shut off after 1 min but soon afterwards it turns on again by itself, then it goes off again, then it remains on permanently. i recently formatted my laptop again and this problem persists. anyone knows whats sup? im using xp ftw... and my configurations are the same as it was before the reformats so idk whats wrong.
Dell :: I Can't Buy M1710 Parts From SPARE PARTS W/o An M1710 SVC TAG #
I was going to be assembling an m1710 this weekend....
I called Dell Spare Parts a few days ago, and placed an order for the following;
HG345 Refurb bottom plastics, m1710
FF084 Refurb palmrest assy, m1710
J8841 Refurb speakers, LED, m1710
CF426 Refurb hinge cover, m1710
I've been watching the order on Dell's site all week, as it was scheduled to ship (on or before today) (2/21/08), and I opted for Next Day shipping.
When I placed the order, the woman I spoke with asked for my Service Tag number. I, um... don't HAVE one... I didn't say this, I simply said I don't have that information at the moment. She asked how I got the part numbers, and I told her from their own Spare Parts page.
Well....the order got cancelled today. Saw it online while at work, just before I left for the day. Another order number with the identical items was created, with a scheduled ship date of 3/3/08. WHAT?
The woman just called....she states they cannot process my order without a service tag number. YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!
I told her I don't have a tag number....she asked if I was building one. "Yes." To which I hear...
"Oh....well, I don't think our supplier will allow that without a service tag number, because we reserve those parts for people who bought m1710's."
I said "That's amazing...because I know a number of people who have done the same thing I'm trying to do, and had no problems getting these parts."
"Well, that's because they have m1710's"
*mad enought to scream at this point* "Um, no...where do you think I got the idea from?? I'm certainly not the first person to have this idea."
how I can get them to sell me some refurbished plastics? What's the secret password?
Dell :: Temps Way Too Hot?

Dell :: Discoloration And Temps
I've had my M1530 for almost 11 months now and I noticed this discoloration on the palm rest but more importantly are the temps. The CPU is hitting 97 degrees Celsius and the GPU is hitting at 94 degrees Celsius. I first noticed this after several hours of video conversions then I ran ORTHOS to replicate the results. Should I ask for a technician to replace the mainboard or heatsinK? I've tried to raise the issue with the GPU running at this temp before but to no avail. However, this is the first time the CPU has hit such high temps.
Dell :: Temps On M4400 OK?
I've got a Precision M4400 for which I did some DIY upgrading... Specifically, I put in a T9900 (3.06GHz, 35W TDP) processor and a 256Gb SSD. You can see the specs in my signature, actually.
The problem is that my temperatures seem to be going pretty high. Realtemp is saying that once I turn on the laptop, both CPU cores are at around 30-35 C. But after a very short while, this heats up to the mid-40's. And if I play Sims 3, let's say, the temperature can go up all the way to the high 70's. The GPU seems to stay at under 80 C, which I think should be fine .....
Dell :: FX 2500 Temps
just installed fx2500 into my 9400.. everything working great..
What should I expext the temps to be running at ... Seems hot... I could keep my 7900gs under 60c by keeping my 18kgui program runnin fans on high while playing Cod4 or CS:s... now the gpu peaks out at 70-72c...
Dell :: 8700 Temps
i was wondering what the temps you guys are getting on your 8700 sli setups running games like crysis and such. i'm running crysis for example at 1280x800 or something, cant remember off hand, everything set to medium. game for about and hour and a half and my temps only showed to reach around 62C. now this is using i8kfangui and offsetting the gpu temp by 8. i'm not using the program to handle the cooling, just monitor the temps. i guess i was just expecting the temps to be higher, not that its bad, i guess maybe the cooling and bios on this laptop just work better than on a 1705. seems that i hit 70C almost daily on that thing depending on the game i was running.
Dell :: Temps M1530

GPC : 58-69
after 1/2 hour of COD4, my max temps were

Dell :: XPS 13 1340 Temps
Recently I bought a Dell xps 13 1340 with p8600 and a 9500GE.
I viewed all the discussions about it and I know it has a heating problem, even thou I decided to buy it - once I saw it I just couldnt look at anything else...
Anyway Im running it with the A07 bios and all new drivers from dell's website.
When Im running it on heavy load like a game the 9400 GPU reaches to 86c.
The 9200 is around 75c. CPU is 74c max .....
Dell :: Temps And Undervolting
ive got a xps m1530, with a t5550 processor.
While gaming im reaching 90°C.
Should i contact dell ? I bought this laptop on july 2008 without any extra warranties and i think that i have 1 year only of warranty that comes for free right?. The downside is that im in south america so it might take a while...
Can i contact them and a get a replace?
Dell :: Safe Temps
I put my 7950 gtx at 620//675 and I was testing with atitool .26 which I just downloaded and didn't change any settings. No artifacts for about 45 minutes, but atitool reports my temps in the system tray, and it got as high as 88 degrees. That seems pretty high, is that bad?
Dell :: M1530 Temps At 90
I always knew my comp ran hot, but not until I got HWMonitor today did I know how hot. I did a load test and CPU/GPU and ACPI temps went to 90. CPU and ACPI temps would drop to 65 ish after this, but the GPU stays kind of high in the 78-85 range. (Anyone know why this is happening?)
Also, when playing games, my temps are almost all at 87-90 all the time. I thought it might be my bios (A12), so I switched back to A09. This did not change anything.
Basically my question is, should I be calling dell support to take a look, and what do I tell them? I've never had computer warranty before. Or is there something else I can do to fix this? It's very hot to type on and sit on my lap.
A last question, these temps are being measured currently with the laptop on my desk, with the lid closed and an external monitor/keyboard/mouse plugged in. Is this causing increased temps? Should I be leaving the lid open?
Dell :: M6400 Temps, GPU Too High?
I am noticing my second m6400 (Qx9300, Nvidia 3700, Vista64 Ultimate, A03 bios) is behaving differently than the first. The fan is pulsing on and off at idle (left hand fan) and it's driving me nuts.
I checked with speedfan and HWmonitor and notice that it idles 59-61 degrees celsius. I think this appears to be a lot hotter than other's temps I see here. (I saw someone mentioning they idle @ 39C)
Dell :: High GPU Temps On M1530
It seems my idle GPU temps are pretty high. I just embarked on a mission to clean my fan out. I believe I was successful, but the whole thing was a little out of my comfort zone.
I'm now experiencing slightly cooler GPU temps i think (around 42-46 C at idle) but the GPU temp at idle is at a very steady 68 - 69 C, and the fan just keeps running all the time. Maybe I should have paid more attention to what the temps were beforehand, but it's too late for that.
Was wondering if this was something to be concerned about. Do I possibly have a bad contact between the thermal system and the GPU, and should I try and connect it more securely?
Dell :: AS5 On 2500m GPU --> Higher Temps?!
In short: My e1705 with a quadro 2500m is idling at temperatures at least 10 degrees celsius higher than it was before: 70 degrees with slow fans compared to ~60 with slow fans (I had fans kick in at 65 to bring it back to 60). There have been no hardware/software changes to the system.
So I read the guides about applying AS5 to your GPU and I thought I'd try to get better temps.
I cleaned off all the old compound from both the GPU and the heat spreader, and placed about a pea-sized piece on the GPU (see attachment). It wasn't the most perfect blob of AS5, but volume-wise I think it was pretty close, and ideally it would be smoothed out when I tightened the screws on the heat spreader.
I stuck to a "less is more approach" having heard that all I needed to do was fill the minor imperfections of the contact surfaces.
Dell :: Normal Temps For 1730?
I just got my 1730 today and it's quite awesome.
However upon downloading hwmonitor, it seems my temps usually hover around mid 60s and go to 75s quite often making the fans come on. Is this normal?
And I live in the bay area pretty close to San Francisco, so the weather here is usually pretty cool
Dell :: M1530 Dead Fan, Temps 80-95
Just wanted to let you know of a tech experience with dell.
I got a M1530, long story short it was a replacement of a shocking Insp 6000.
Buncha hell to get it to work right (hardware issues galore).
Ended up working with Dell Liasons to get it fixed.
It was out of warranty (only had 90 days from every repair) and it began to overheat... 75-81 idle and 95 gaming... Called my liason, and he sent me a fan replacement. Temps dropped to 59-69 idle (fan kicks on at 69), and have yet to try gaming, gonna stop gaming on it.
Dell :: I'm On My Third M4400 Motherboard. Temps

but it's been more than three weeks since I've used the machine (apparently dell didn't have replacement rgbled displays up here in canada
Dell :: XPS M1330 Normal And Max Temps? (CPU / GPU)
I've been fighting this M1330 for a while, and had the motherboard replaced once already to "fix" the GPU issue.
But I'm still worried about temps.
Sitting flat on a coffee table (not blocking the vents or anything) and playing Fear 2 demo
the laptop just shut down (presumably due to high temperatures) after only 5-10 minutes.
Dell :: 103C - Check The Temps
After all my hard work - stripped down CPU, GPU and then AS5ed it over the weekend...I only went and played Crysis yesterday with the Power supply pushed up against the back wight hand vent of my 1710.
After 1 hour of playing, I went to check the temps - all smug in the fact I knew I wouldnt be over 90 after all my hard work, and weekend testing....
Imagine my horror when I saw 103C....hope I havent fried my card.
Dell :: Studio 1555 High Cpu Temps?
Running a t6600 2.2ghz c2d.
Wondering if these temps are acceptable in a laptop or not?
Temps idling 3-10% cpu = 57-67C
Fan feels the need to go into hairdryer mode every 5 minutes or so to bring the temp down a few C.
under load core 1 + 2 = 100%
core 1 = 88-90C
core2 = 90-92C
Also i will add this is currently in a very cold room.
would you say these are acceptable temps or not?
also not overly impressed with the build quality. keyboard bezel popping out in certain sections after 4 months.

Dell :: Methods To Lower Temps On M1530
I get idle temps of 65-70 CPU and 70-75 GPU and gaming temps of 76-80 CPU and 85+ GPU when gaming.
Right now i've been leaning toward the method of spraying all the vents with compressed air, is there anything else I can do that doesn't involve taking apart the laptop?
Dell :: Temps Are Up Since M1530 BIOS Update
Since I updated my bios I have noticed that my fans are pretty much always on high and that the heat coming out the back is a lot hotter than it used to be. Granted, I have been using the computer with my big monitor with the lid closed more now but even when I'm not doing that it's still just as hot. Has anyone else noticed this since the update?
