HP/Compaq :: CQ50-210US: Heat

Jan 11, 2009

I got my laptop about one month ago.

I'm kinda worried about it's temperatures. Just surfing internet, I get 75-88C (or even 91C) on the CPU, and 55C on the harddrive. Is that normal? If I run a game, the temperature goes even higher. For example, I was at 77C and I opened a video in youtube and it went to 81C! Right now I'm just talking on Skype and I have 85C.

The computer is not on my lap, it is on a table, so i am not blocking any of the air vents, and the room temperature is not high at all.

Are those temps normal? Should I worry?

HP/Compaq :: Can't Install Wifi Driver For Presario CQ50 108NR

Aug 28, 2009

I have a Compaq Presario CQ50-108NR and my computer needed a recovery, but I had accidentally formatted that part of the hard drive. So I used my Vista Ultimate disk and fresh installed it on my laptop. Because of this, I have to reinstall all of my drivers on my Laptop.

So, I went to HP's site for the drivers which was here. My priority is to get my wifi/internet working as soon as possible because I can download the rest of the drivers later. So, I download both the Atheros and Broadcom drivers for my laptop. I've installed both of them, but my Laptop still doesn't detect any wifi spots despite there being plenty around me. Also, I keep getting a notification that windows must now install drivers for hardware, yet it when I click auto detect and folder detect (folder where my drivers are), it says unable to find any. Also, here is my wifi card.

HP/Compaq :: Would This Hard Drive Be Compatible With A Presario CQ50-115NR

Feb 19, 2010

if this hard drive would fit in and be compatible with my laptop:

[url]

I'm not sure if this 12mm, 2.5 inch drive would fit in it or be compatible with it. I plan to purchase this one if it is indeed compatible and will fit.

Otherwise, if not, then can someone recommend another internal 750 GB SATA 3 Gb/s 8 MB Cache 5200 or 5400 hard drive for me that is just as good quality as Western Digital? Must be compatible and fit.

HP Compaq CQ50-NR215 Networking :: Bad Recovery - Laptop Failed To Boot (Error 1005)

Jan 5, 2015

This Compaq CQ50-NR215 has continued to get slower over time. It was bought at BestBuy, and came with (2) "GeekSquad" recovery CD's- as opposed to a  Microsoft OS disk? Upon backing up my data, I proceded with Disk1- which it said successfully did something with the partition. Stage two was installing original software. It stalled during this stage & gave ERROR 1005. After removing the CD, the laptop failed to boot, stating that some device in the boot sector was not present.
 
It so happened that I had a Vista OS CD from some other computer, so I inserted the CD & tried reboot. After asking whether to repair/install windows (which I selected install), it appeared to going well. The greeting message appears & says "Prepearing your DESKTOP for initial use". It booted fine, the UI appears intact. The problem-
 
The WLAN light on the laptop which is red when turned off/blue when on- remains red & will not activate. In the device manager I find no network adapter. A section named "Other Devices" is highlighted in yellow indicating an issue- when selecting Other Devices, a submenu appears & the following list is present (see photo also)

Coprocessor
Ethernet Controller
SM Bus Controller
Unknown Device.

From the HP driver download section, I downloaded what I thought may be the appropriate chipset to a flash drive, then moved to the laptop & installed. Still nothing.
 
It was suggested that I may be able to plug an ethernet cable directly from my router to the laptop & gain internet access that way- which failed, no access. The CD I installed from was designed for an older desktop, not having the software to make use of the internal wifi.

HP/Compaq :: Pavilion DV5- Cooling

Jan 30, 2009

despite the fact that it can only use 3 of its 4 gigs of RAM, I still love my new DV5.

There's only one, tiny kink...

It's getting hot. Very hot. My hands aren't burning, but I can feel the heat in my palms.

Speedfan readings:
Core 0: Average temperature's around 47C
Core 1: Avg. Temp. is 49C
GPU: Here's the real problem. IT'S ON FREAKING 54C!!!

These temperatures are bloody DANGEROUS. And I'm going to be using this for gaming.

HP/Compaq :: DV3T Cooling Pad

Oct 16, 2009

I just got my DV3T. I noticed that the cooling pad I currently have will not work with this laptop since it sucks air from under the laptop, while the DV3T sucks the air from under the laptop and blows it out the side.

So are there any cooling pads that work well with the DV3T? Ones that blow air from the bottom to the top?

HP/Compaq :: DV2 Replace Cooling Pads

May 12, 2009

I checked out the service manual, to read up on disassembly. Thinking about opening my notebook up and removing the heat pads and replacing them with copper shims to reduce heat. that is, unless someone can find a way to downclock the GPU for cooling purposes... But I'd like to get it cooler so the fan won't have to run all the time.

HP/Compaq :: DV5T: 12 Cell Battery Or Cooling Pad

Jan 12, 2009

The DV5T is one of two notebooks that I'm considering and I have a question related to the heat while gaming. Many have recommended a cooling pad, and many also suggest simply raising the notebook .5-1" in the back. With the natural lift of the 12 cell battery, would the cooling pad still be necessary for long gaming runs? I don't want to pay the extra $20 for the 12 cell only for minimal cooling gains and still needing to buy a cooling pad. Or is it cooling pads are highly recommending for all laptops when gaming?

HP/Compaq :: ENVY Series Cooling + Gaming-ability

Can any ENVY owners (any model is fine), comment on the cooling system, hardware temperatures, physical temperatures, etc.? And if anyone knows about the cooling system/features/vents for the ENVY 14.

Also, compare ENVY's gamingability to the m11x, MSI GE600 or MSI GX640, if possible.

Dell :: Too Much Cooling

Feb 5, 2009

I was thinking of making my own notebook cooler, one with a fan directly over the air intake.

I was wondering if too much air going into the intake will spoil the fan inside, kinda like the air is moving faster than the internal fan can handle.

Dell :: Best Cooling Pad For XPS 13

Jun 16, 2009

I am looking at cooling pad for my 1340. Most of them have the fan in the center (like the Belkin, with great reviews) but my laptop gets hot at the very top left above the "studioXPS" logo and power button.

To me, this means I need a 3 fan-cooler with fans at the top corners as well as the center

Acer :: Cooling

Jan 6, 2010

Since my laptop gets quite hot and my nvidia 8 serie is dying slowy I was thinking, since I only use my laptop as a dekstop replacement anyway, of unscrewing the bottom of my laptop so the laptopcooler would have more effect.

My question is:
is this a good idea? or will my computer become polluted with dust which will make my hardware components defect?

Sony :: SZ3 Cooling Fan

May 23, 2010

I bought my Sony three years ago. The Model was SZ3VMP/X, 13.3 inch with Core2Duo T7400 and 2GB RAM and 120GB HDD.

Everything was ok till last year. It becames louder and louder. I cleaned Heat sink and still it was loud.

After that I found there is cooling fan, above left from the Touchpad. Last two days I can hear noises like fan is dying.

Is it possible to buy this fan somewhere, when not to open it and clean it. It looks like pretty complicate to open that part of Notebook. To remove the keyboard wasn't a problem or HDD.

Dell :: Cooling The Studio XPS 16

Apr 9, 2009

I take back what I said about this not getting as hot as my 1720. It most certainly runs hotters, especially under a medium to heavy load.

What steps have those of you with a 16 started taking to reduce your temperature? Anyone done any neat heatsink mods, replaced fans, found a program to control the fans, any of that?

Happy to hear any and all input, I love the Studio XPS 16 so far but it does get mighty toasty...and for the record, the warm touchpad area doesn't really bother me, but the underside does.

Dell :: Cooling Pad- M1710

Jul 7, 2007

I want to buy a cooling pad for an XPS M1710 I just ordered but need some advice first. Some cooling pads out there blow air up to the bottom of the laptop, and others draw air from the bottom of the laptop and exhaust the hot air to the back or sides. Can somebody tell me whether the bottom of the M1710 draws cool air in, or blows hot air out? If the M1710 draws air in, then I will get a cooling pad that blows cool air to the bottom. If the bottom of the M1710 blows out hot air, then I will get a cooling pad that draws the hot air out

Dell :: Which Bios Is Best For Cooling

Jan 13, 2009

Got a m1530 and, so far, it is fantastic.

i've been keeping an eye on temps and was wondering which is the best bios for cooling.

at the moment my fans don't really kick in until the gpu reaches 70c. The moment the fan starts (not super loud like when you play games but louder than the normal hum) the temp drops back to 58ish very quickly (talking seconds). However, in my mind, it makes more sense to keep temps as stable as possible.

Without fans running (or at least without me noticing them running), my temps normally hang around high 50's low 60's on the gpu. However, if i am doing lots of stuff the temps slowly rise to high 60's before the fan turns on and brings it back to 58-63. I think if fans were on more often i could easily have temps in the low 50's pretty much all the time..

I think I have bios 13 at the mo.. that or 12. is there anyway to increase fan usage?

Sony :: Cooling Pad For SZ Series

Oct 28, 2009

My SZ-770 become extremely loud and can be used as waffle maker sometimes.

I've disassembled it and cleaned all the dust using compressed air, but it's too hot and too noisy.

I'm thinking about buying a cooling pad to partially solve the problem. But most of pads have fans on the bottom and I'm not sure that it will fix my problem.

Can anyone recommend a good pad for SZ series?
