Dell :: XPS M1730 Overheating Fix


My XPS M1730 (Core2 Extreme, 8800M GTX SLI) started overheating about a year ago, especially if playing a game. I noticed that the air coming out if the back of the unit was getting extremely hot and it would lock up if I played certain games.

I ended up disassembling it ( **XPS M1730 Disassembly Guide** ) and found that the heat exchanger fins were completely clogged with lint.

I cleaned the layer of lint and dust off of them (it was like a layer of thin gray felt) and the laptop worked fine again. Since then I clean them every six months.

I just did it today and figured I'd post some pics of the fins after six months of use. At this point the laptop still works fine, but the air coming out of the back of it is noticeably hotter than it is with clean/clear fins, especially if playing games .....

Dell :: GPU Overheating
I replaced the integrated video card on my computer with a 7900 GS and it's been overheating. I looked at my case, and the vents for the GPU are there, it's just that they're solid. Where the holes are, there is metal instead. Does anyone know anything I can do to knock those holes out so I can get some air in there? WoW overheats in about 15 min,

Dell :: New XPS Overheating Not Sure Why
My 2 month old Dell M1530 idles at the following temps:

I really don't know why... It's been like this for a couple weeks or more now. Power settings are all on max of course... But when I first got the laptop, it'd idle pretty cool... Now my hands sweat while typing :

Laptop is not overclocked (I did overclock a bit in October for Crysis now and then)

My room is pretty cold.

I'm going to open it up and look for dust... But I really doubt this is the problem.

Specs:

Intel T9300
8600M GT 256Mb DDR3

Dell :: About Crashes (overheating)?
my computer isXPS M1530 with GeForce 8600m gt. When I play a game named Gunz, which is supposed to not be a graphic-intensive game, my pc will simply go black after a certain time(vary between 10 min - hours). Then, the sound of pc just stop.

I thought this is a overheating problem, but after viewing some threads about overheating, it seems like that overheat only lead to a shut down or a restart. Since my computer simply go black and turn off, I don't know if my pc is overheating. Can someone tell me if Im overheating? If not, what's causing these crashes?

Btw, my GPU and ACPI temp were around 83C five min before my computer crashes...

Dell :: Is My E6400 Overheating?
Just got my E6400 from Dell Outlet today and i noticed it's running noticeably hot.

I've read some of the posts on the nvidia overheating problem so I decided to run the same tests other people did. The screenshot is after running 3DMark2006 on Balanced power setting.

Are those temps ok? I talked to a rep who acknowledged the potential problem with the nvidia chipset and said if i send this to the depot now they can take a look at the mobo, cpu and gpu and have it back to me in less than 10 regular days.

Since I have finals coming up, I'd much rather not send it in unless they offer me onsite or some potential freebies, which the rep refused to. So any suggestion would be much appreciated. Should I run some more tests?

Dell :: CPU And/or GPU Overheating In E1705.
My laptop has shut down abrubtly twice because of overheating. When I powered the laptop again, it would bring me to that overheating warning prompt with the two nasty beeps and whatnot.

Since I'm running Windows 7 x64, I wasn't able to install i8fangui, but I found a program called SpeedFan (http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php) that I'm running right now.

Here are the current temperature readings for everything:
GPU: 73 C (there's a fire icon next to this. can't imagine that's good)
HD0: 36 C
Core 0: 50 C
Core 1: 50 c

Dell :: Latitude- Overheating
I have been on these forums complaining about various issues with my Latitude 6400 for about four months now. I am on my second Latitude; the first I gave back after one month in October of 2008 b/c of the relentless fan.

This one has the following specs:
-Dual Core T9400
-Nvidia 160 GPU
-4gbs of ram
-Seagate 250gb-hd at 7200rpm
-Vista Business
*the above sits in a E-port replicator/dock with two external drives roughly 75% of the time.

So heres the problem: aside from a relentless fan that never seems to turn off (which I have just resigned to), I have a serious CPU dilemma. For some reason, at odd intervals during the day, it will jump up to 50-60-% and stay there. It actually idles at about 25%. Mind you, I use ONLY Outlook, Itunes, and internet access.

This CPU usage will steadily climb until it hits 100%, at which point I cant do anything but restart the computer.

Heres the strange part: when I look at my Task Manager in this situation, it seems that EVERYTHING is jumping around and contributing to the CPU usage. The usual, more active culprits are the Search Index and Filter and the "Host Processes". Also, various aspects of Symantec seems to bog things down as well. Whats weird is that if I end one of the processes, another random process will start to use the CPU percentage that I just shut down! It doesnt matter what I do, the computer will "find" a way to use up 100%! For example-today the "Search Filter and Index were using almost 60% of my CPU so I shut the whole Index down. My computer ran at about 5-10% for an hour and then magically found other stuff to bog it down. By the end of the day, I was back up to 75% usage again...

Dell :: E1705 Overheating
Our nearly 4 year old E1705 has begun spontaneously shutting-off , and I suspect thermal protection is kicking in and causing the laptop to shut off. I installed RealTemp and have found idle temperatures around 60 C, sometimes rising to over 90 C under a modest CPU load (e.g., 50 %). I believe the thermal limit on the processor is 100 C.

I have checked to be sure all the vents are clear and free of dust.

I installed the fan control GUI "I8KFanGUI" to get additional insights into what may be happening, although I have found nothing conclusive. Idle CPE core temperatures of around 65 C, with the GeForce Go 7800 graphics card at about 60 C. I did a video render for about 5 minutes resulting in a 75% CPU load. CPU core temperature climb up to 96 C, and appear to be continuing to climb at the time the render ended,

I recently update the BIOS from A00 to A10. Could that update have done something to the native fan control of the laptop? If not, any other thoughts on possible causes?

Dell :: Xps1330 Overheating
I'm having A LOT of problems lately with this pos (see sig for specs).

The thing kept on slowing down when browsing/watching movies/playing OLD games (warcraft 3 basically).

What happens is that from boot till now cpu idles at 100%.

I've scanned the pc, I got rid of services. Nada.

Today was even worse, the pc got extremely slow so I rebooted, then in the vista lóading screen it took ages (about 10 minutes), sometimes it would turn off before vista even finished loading, I couldn't even get into safe-mode.

So, I let it cool off, and turned it back on after an hour. Everything was fine then but after playing a short game in warcraft it started acting up again.

I'm using Vista Home SP1, I basically turned off all the useless services and startup app. turned off indexing VAC etc.

My temp are (HWmonitor): CPU: 65, Mobo: 60, GPU: 85, HDD: 45

Sometimes I carry my laptop in my backpack to uni and tend to forget that it's in there and when coming home I tend to trop it from around 5-10 cm height (rarely happens) but I thought it might have to do something with this.

But then after noticing these weird hangups I'm thinking this pos is just overheating.

As I'm writing this everything is EXTREMELY slow I can't even open the task manager properly.

Dell :: 7900GS Overheating
I have an Inspiron 1705e with a 7900GS. The GPU was replaced (twice) about 1.5 years ago under warranty due to failure most likely caused by overheating.

I installed a fan tool (forget which one) and set the fan/temp speeds pretty conservative to keep the GPU cool. Now it's running 1800rpm non-stop to keep the GPU at a reported 63°C.

That's with no programs running, just after boot. If I put the system to sleep, then wake it up, GPU temp is reported at <30C, then creeps back up to 60C+ .....

Dell :: T7200 Overheating
just got a t7200 processor to replace my t2400 in my inspiron 9400 with bios a09. All ok in setup but when booting into windows fans go mental and the machine locks up and resets. Just before it does the cpu thing on fangui reads mega high like 80 to 95. Stupid question but i didn't put a thermal pad in.. Would this account for the hi temp and lockup? Will fitting a new pad fix the problem.. Or even without a thermal pad would my cpu temp shoot up so quickly, if not is it a symptom of something wrong with the chip?

Dell :: XPS M1530 Overheating
I discovered that while playing video games for a bit my frame rates would all of a sudden go abysmal for about a minute or to (drop by 50-75%) and then return to normal. I finally tracked down the problem and whenever I tested the temperature and CPU speed when the frame rates went crazy, I noticed that the temperature was 85+ degrees C and that the computer had halved the CPU speed to about 1.5ghz (I have a T8300 2.4Ghz) in an attempt to cool it down. Is there any way to fix if my fans have malfunctioned or something? I'm still within a 1 year warranty, so should I just call Dell or is there something I can do about it?

Dell :: Severe Overheating -- What's Going On?
I have a Dell Inspiron 1526 that won't boot because the CPU gets very hot in only a few seconds. I was getting a CPU failure code (blinking num lock LED) so I changed the CPU. Same problem.

In desperation, I changed the motherboard. Unbelievable, but the same problem! I tried to do a diagnostic start up (hold Fn key while powering on) and it shut down in about 40 seconds. When I went to swap the CPU, the heat sink was so hot that I couldn't touch it.

Dell :: 1730 CPU Overheating
I was having computer shutdown issues with my 1730 when playing high end games like UT3, Crysis and COD4. I have a 2.8 Extreme cpu and dual 8800s. After playing for a few minutes the machine would lockup and I had to hold the power button to restart. After letting it cool for a few minuted I would get the M1004 code [system overheat].

I have Rightmark CPU utility installed so I tried to undervolt the CPU in the options menu and that seems to have solved my problem. I just played UT3 Pysics mod for 30 minutes without problem.

Dell :: XPS M1330CPU Overheating ... Wrong VID?
I've just bought a Dell XPS M1330, which had Windows Vista. I've erased the Vista, installed the XP and updated the BIOS to the lattest version. As I was experiencing random freezings, I ran Orthos ...

the CPU temperature rose rapidly to ~80C and in less than 3 minutes was above 90C. After ~5 minutes, it has reached the critical value and the laptop shutted down, even though the fan was spinning above 5000 rpm.

Using CoreTemp and CPU-Z, I've seen that the VID of the CPU (T7500) is ~1.2500V, but CPU-Z shows 1.36V and even 1.40V sometimes. Using the RMClock I've found the CPU to be stable @ 2200MHz @ 1.20V (maybe even less).....

Dell :: E6400 Overheating Throttling
My E6400 has been suffering overheating problems with the current hot weather (over 30C degrees). When the machine overheats it begun to throttle to 75% then to 35%. Once it reached 35% the machine is extremely slow (much slower than normal 35% in power saving mode), it like the machine is put in the safe mode and it won’t recover once the temperatures drops i.e. ACPI, & cpu =40’s & NVS160 = 60’s. The only thing fix the problem is to shutdown the machine & wait for few minutes and restarting the machine. Anyone have had experienced similar problem? I am suspecting the ACPI is triggering the machine to throttle.

I was able to replicate the problem and here is the temperatures the machine begun throttling

ACPI = 78C, Core 0 = 61C, Core 2= 72C, NVS 160 = 80CHDD = 45C
P8400 -> core speed = 1600MHz, multiplier = x6 bus speed = 266 MHz, FSB =1064MHz
BIOS = A11

Dell :: Inspiron 1520 CPU Overheating
I've had this laptop for about 7 months now and it's progressively running hotter and hotter while I game. I now have the back of the laptop propped up with some books so that there's more air circulation underneath it, but even so I will often hit 96 degrees Celsius when playing games such as Call of Duty 4, Crysis, Farcry, and World of Warcraft.

I will admit that I force clock the cpu to maintain a core clock of 1.60 GHz. If I don't force clock it it will just drop my cpu clock down to 800 MHz and sit there giving me 10 fps and lower in any game. My video card (8600m gt) runs fine and cool so there's no problems there .....

Dell :: M4400 Overheating And Shutting Down!
I don't know if I shoudl be posting this in the M4400 thread, so please accept my apologies if it should be.

I'm a proud M4400 owner, and have been for a while now. However, I just installed Win7 x64 (upgrade from Vista x64), and the first thing I did was install RMClock then undervolt it. I'm very familiar with doing this, and with overclocking/undervolting in general (my PC is a 4.5GHz Q9650!).

After undervolting it to 1.025v at the 10x multiplier I set about to do some stress testing, whilst also monitoring temps with coretemp.

I guess for temp measurements to be meaningful we need to start with Ambient temps. In my room it is probably around 13-15C (55-59F), as in too cold to sit around in a t-shirt (I'm in Austria, it's winter, and the heating isn't cranked because I like to run my computer cool!).

Dell :: XPS M1530 Sound And Overheating
1. Was ANYONE able to fix their sound stuttering issue on m1530? Through Dell suport, specifically? I've seen many non working solutions, and many components blamed that it makes me believe this problem defies any definition. I used to have this problem all the time, now it just occurs when laptop is on for extended amounts of time (a day) and only if connected to the internet (wireless or lan). Example: Listening to music and turning on a movie trailer on netflix = horrible stuttering, crazy cpu usage, general slow down especially during initial buffering. Anybody with a similar problem? (mind that I'm virtually unable to reproduce the stutter on a freshly restarted lappy - it happens after a day of usage w/ sleep in between)

2. Overheating....just to keep it short: 20 mins of gaming brings up my temps to the ridiculous ~100C CPU and abt the same for GPU + emergency shutdown . My guess is bad/badly mounted heatsink. Was anybody able to resolve an issue like that with dell?

Was heatsink the problem?

HP/Compaq :: Overheating HP
I have sent my laptop off 3 times to HP to have it repaired and its just came back and is running at 197.6 degrees when playing 720p videos. It got hot enough to char a piece of paper that was sitting next to it on my desk, almost starting a fire if I wasn't there.

The kicker is this laptop was given to me by hp a year and a half ago as a replacement for another overheating laptop. I am now told they don't replace laptops. So I cant call up my credit card company and say I received a lemon, or go back to the store and say you sold me a lemon, as it was given to me by HP.

The case managers have been EXTREMELY rude. Essentially calling me stupid and that im not qualified to diagnose the computer, even though Im a computer technician by trade and have been building computers since I was 9 years old.

IS my only options small claims court? is there anyway to get ahold of anyone higher than their case managers? they claim there isnt. Is there a way to get ahold of the board or ceo?

HP/Compaq :: Dv5 And Overheating
The problem:

as many dv5 owners know, this HP series has a little problem with overheating.

The laptop has a small aperture for air circulation just below the exhaust vent: the fan takes fresh air from the aperture and then push out warm air.

Many people noted that the aperture is too small but its position is also problematic because when you put the laptop on a desk, the air stream is reduced so much that the heat cannot be dissipated correctly. This leads to very high temperatures under high loads that sometimes causes the laptop to shutdown itself to prevent damage.

Now one solution is to raise the laptop a bit, to allow better cooling.

My findings:

Dissecting my laptop I found a very interesting thing.

In the upper left corner of the laptop there's the fan that cools down the whole thing.

The fan is very near to the upper left corner of the keyboard too, and the notebook chassis has a hole to let the fan aspire more air from the upside.

You may say that's good, the fan is getting fresh air from the keyboard too, right?

Wrong. The keyboard on its back has a thin plastic coverage that prevents the air flow!

The solution:

So, armed wih a cutter, I delicately made a cut on this plastic coverage film near the upper left angle and then I removed the cutted piece from the back of the keyboard (there are some glue strips that fix it for better adherence).

To be precise, when I say "upper left angle" I suppose you have your keyboard in front of you (near the ESC key to be pratical). Since you need to cut the *rear* coverage plastic, it becomes the upper right angle. Just always take the ESC key as a placeholder!

HP/Compaq :: HDX 16 Overheating
I have recently purchased the HDx 16.

I installed 'Speedfan' to monitor the cpu and gpu temps..

Idle temps for the gpu are around the 62-65 C mark which to me seems too much given that I'm not doing any graphic intensive work.

If I set the fans to turn on permanently in bios settings then idle temp goes down to 50C .

I havent done any gaming yet so cant comment on intensive use temps.

Can anyone else share their thoughts on this since I get the feeling that my laptop is overheating.

Dell :: Studio 1557i7 Overheating Issues
I'm having a few problems with my recently acquired Studio 15.

I've done a few Crysis benchmarks and while the first run is ok, the second and third runs are progessively slower. By running GPU-Z in the background, I can see the GPU hitting temps of 80c and the clockspeeds throttling back, too. When the clockspeeds drop, the framerate drops - I'm 99% certain its the GPU causing the issues. The CPU - a Core i7 720QM - is fine, and hits peaks around 60c.

Already had a new cooler fitted, but I was wondering if anyone had experienced similar issues....

EDIT: The framerate fluctuations are most obvious if you load Crysis and just stand still. The framerate constantly shifts from 8fps to 15fps and back again.

Dell :: Studio 1535 Overheating/Cooling
The processor (Core 2 Duo T5750) is idling at about 54-57 C which I gather is relatively high. Is there anything I can do about this? I ran ORTHOS with HWMonitor and the peak temperature is about 64 C for both cores.

In general, it's not too hot of a laptop, but when stressed, sometimes the area to the left of the trackpad gets unbearably hot.

I'm considering a cooling pad, but preferably nothing too expensive or obscure.

Dell :: M1710 Still Overheating...Fans Not Running
After recent, abrupt overheating issues with my xps m1710 I followed a guide here to clean dust out from my heatsync. There was indeed a lot of dust blocking the fans and I removed all of it. After putting everything back together I proceeded to format my pc with no problems. However, I am still experiencing extreme overheating with my pc while simply reinstalling drivers.

I inspected the underside of my laptop (obviously extremely hot to the touch) and noticed that neither of the fans on the underside were running. Is it normal for the fans to not run for periods of time? or should they be running constantly.

Dell :: Overheating Video Card And Support
For the past month or so, my M170 has been overheating, oftentimes reaching temps of over 100 degreess which causes the video card to throttle down to about half speed after 2-3 minutes. Well, today I finally decided to contact Dell to see if they could help me solve the problem. They took me through the usual steps such as updating video drivers, running Dell diagnostics, etc. Anyway, after working through the troubleshooting process and not finding a solution, the tech support told me to lower the hardware acceleration in the display settings. I asked him if this would simply be the same as throttling the card down myself. He admitted it would be so I told him that was not a satisfactory solution since the throttling of the card was what I was trying to avoid in the first place. I then asked him if it was possible to receive a replacement video card but he said that since the Dell Diagnostics came back fine, and the computer was not experiencing any crashes, he could not offer me that option. So we basically left it at that, and he apologized for not being able to offer an adequate solution.

However, I am kinda disappointed in how the whole thing turned out. My computer is not working properly, and Dell is not able to fix it. What should I do now?

Dell :: Inspiron 1720 ¿Overheating? Problem
Hi There!
I´ve got the Dell 1720 Inspiron since 2 years ago.
No problems until these 2 past weeks. I use to play the NBA 2k10 with my laptop since last december, and everything goes right, but from last 2 weeks, if I play more than 3 or 4 games (15min. per game), the laptop shuts down by itself. I´ve checked the CPU and GPU temperatures with Everest, and with this game running they get 70-77 degrees...It´s not so hot, is it?
The fan normally gets fast in short periods of time, but it´s not at highest speed during the game...
I don´t know how to improve the heat contro; I´ve update the BIOS, Graph. drivers and so...
Any ideas?
Thanks

This system is about 9 months old.

I first started having problems after I'd only had this computer for about a month. I was at a conference and had my laptop in its sleeve and in my backpack. I took it out sometime in the afternoon after having used it in the morning and it was extremely, extremely hot .....

Ever since I bought this laptop I've had an issue of it shutting itself down. Almost always while watching youtube videos. I found out about the handy little tool called coretemp and I see my processors running about 68+ nearly all the time. When I have websites loaded that have flash animations, ads, videos (youtube), it only gets hotter and hotter. It nearly always reaches 90+ (Celsius) and then shuts down.

I read about it needing a bios update for many people who say they have the problem with the laptop screen going black, but I think mine is heat related.

My laptop runs around 68 when idle and when busy it gets hot. Right now I have Google Chrome open with two tabs, one is this webpage and the other is gmail and its running at 75 celsius. Performance tab in task manager says it has a processor load of only 1%.

I keep a watch on the temperature and as long as I start closing programs and windows when it reaches around 80 it will start to cool down. So as long as I can keep an eye on it the laptop will run fine for days with no problems. If I forget to check and it gets too hot it'll shut down. I'll check the logs and sure enough the last few lines of the last log file will look something like this ...

Acer :: Overheating When Gaming
I purchase an acer laptop 2 years ago for gaming. The specs are Intel Core duo 1.83ghz, ATi Mobility Radeon X1600 Video memory 256MB, 512 RAM (which I upgrade to 2GB).

I am experiencing auto shutdowns when playing game such as Tomb Raider anniversary and Drift city. Is there any solution to this? The fan is working well. And I get hot temperatures reading from Speedfan, cpu temp at 85 when gaming!

Will resetting the bios fix this? Are there side-effects to that?

Acer :: 6920g Overheating Or
Some of us know that the 6929g sometimes mostly during gaming downclocks....

But can anybody explain to me, why i can get the following temps (tested separately)

cpu, max before downclocking:
realtemp: 91°
hw monitor: 76°

gpu, stock powermizer on
gpu-z 73° (stopped myself still no downclocking)

But then when i start playing cod5 my cpu starts downclocking @ 58° (hw monitor), while GPU @ 63°....

Why does this only happen while gaming when it seems that both cpu and gpu can handle much higher temps?

Combined it should reach even higher temps but it doesn't because it downclocks?

Is there something else that can force the cpu to downclock?

Acer :: 5315 Overheating
Every so often my laptop shuts down. Like it seems after it comes back from a sleep session the fan doesnt come back on. I had to replace the hard drive in it once because I think it fried from getting to hot. I don't know whats wrong with it. I had a cool pad, but it didnt keep it to cool. Is there any fixes, or fans I could put in it to keep it cool? Or even drill any holes anywhere to cool it down? its an acer 5315 model.
