Dell :: FX2500M Temp Monitor

May 12, 2008

I've got a e1705 with a FX 2500M in it . 2G of ram, and a T2400 intel processor.

I got a copy of Neverwinter Nights 2 for free, so I went to play it. I was cruising along making my character, when my laptop shut off! I restarted, and it said it stopped because of temperature. So, I started up core temp so I could watch the temp, and restarted the game. Once I got into the game, and it's all that was running, neither of my cores went above 110 degrees F. Then, it shut down again. I was not running all the 'options' to make it pretty, but I was running it at 1920x1200. I dropped it down some so I could monitor the temps (same ratio, just a little smaller).

I updated my drivers to the newest MovileForce Drivers, and want to retest, but figured I'd also watch my card temps, to see if that was causing the shutdown?

I installed fangui, and no gpu temp is listed. I also was going to try nvtemplogger, but it said something like my card isn't capable of temperature monitoring?

So, how do I monitor it? Does my card have the ability to output it's temp to one of the tools?

Dell :: How To Monitor Temp Of E4300 And Silent NB Cooler?

Jan 15, 2009

I have the Antec cooler, and it is louder than the notebook. So, looks like it will be going back to Staples.

I am looking for suggestions other than SpeedFan which is more than I want. For now,

I would just like some temps and some fan RPMs without going to the BIOS which of course requires rebooting.

HP/Compaq :: Cq60- Using An External Monitor And The Monitor Refused To Turn On From Standby

Feb 10, 2010

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.

HP/Compaq :: Gaming V.s Temp

Jan 19, 2009

I'm probably going buy and HP laptop soon, the HDX 16"...

So therefore, I was wondering how the gaming is on your sexy HP. Not graphically wise or fps and such, but temp wise. For instance, how long do you get to game for before things get too hot or do you manage to keep things at decent temps for a full day worth of gaming

Personally I don't play too intensive games, mostly world of warcraft. Nothing hardcore like crysis and stuff. So i'd imagine i'd get some decent gaming hours as long as i keep things cool haha by getting a zalaman pc cooling pad and if i decided to undervolt.

HP/Compaq :: G60-125NR- High Temp Of 95+*C And A Low Of 57*C

Mar 11, 2009

So I have had a few hp laptops now. My G60-125NR is the hottest one I have. I ran speed fan just to see if it would work on it, it came up with a high temp of 95+*C and a low of 57*C. Is this normal? The temp is at 80*C while I'm typing this right now. Its on a hard table, with clean vents...

HP/Compaq :: G60-244DX- Reducing Temp

Jan 29, 2010

I have an HP G60-244DX with 3GB ram, AMD Dual Core Ql-62 at 2.00 GHz, Windows 7 32 bit, and nVidia GeForce 8200m G with 1394 MB memory (integrated gfx card). I got the blue screen of death a few weeks back so I went out and bought a laptop cooler.

Anyways I was playing Left 4 Dead and I got the BSOD, sometimes when I play L4D, I'll get a black screen and the laptop shuts off (battery fully charged, power cord hooked in)...haven't had this problem since buying the cooler but the laptop does get pretty hot.

Things that I noticed will bring up the CPU and GPU temps are windows media player and playing a full screen game. I'm using CPUID Monitor.

Under heavy load (i.e playing L4D), the CPU cores get up to 107 degrees ceclius and the GPU core up to 110 degrees celcius (doesn't stay there but the temp runs up that high).

I know laptops aren't made for gaming and I've been reading that AMD processors generally get higher temps. than Intel.

Is there a way to lower the tempreture of CPU and GPU while havin the laptop under heavy load (even with a cooler)?

HP/Compaq :: Fan Is CONSTANTLY On... (Temp Readings Included)

Sep 18, 2009

I have a DV6000. I keep this laptop in tiptop shape. I only recently started to use it again on a fulltime basis. I notice that the fan is now CONSTANTLY on. It doesn't matter what I do, idling included... Here are some stats from HW Monitor. I'm not sure how to interpret these numbers, but they do look high. The palm rest is warm, but it has always been the case.

what I can do? Obviously I can't turn off the fan it the system is in fact hot.

HP/Compaq :: No CPU Temp Reporting Under New Bios (dv7t)

HP/Compaq :: GPU Temp In Presario F572US Quite High

Apr 5, 2010

I downloaded CPUID and ran it to see what it would report for GPU temp. It's running between 80 and 84 degrees C. My notebook is sitting on a cooling pad I bought a few months ago; it has two small fans, powered by USB. I don't the cooling pad helps much, only a slight benefit. CPU temps (two cores) usually run in low 50's, fluctuating from high 40's to about 57, as notebook fan kicks on and off. The notebook fan does not run excessively, in my opinion; it usually only needs to run a few seconds before it stops and the frequency of it kicking on is not too high, I believe. Actually, with the high temp reading for GPU, I'm surprised the main fan does not run more often and for longer durations. Again, the cooling pad makes little difference in frequency and duration of main fan.

The GPU in this notebook PC is nVidia GeForce Go 6100. I bought this computer is July 2007. I've never checked GPU temp before. The video driver was updated at least once since I've owned it. I could roll back the video driver and see whether that would make any difference. Or, I could update to a later version; Windows Updates has been showing a video driver as an optional update for quite some time but I have not installed it. Or, should I visit nVidia's website and search for a driver update.......

HP/Compaq :: Mobility Radeon 4650 GPU Temp (DV7-2000)

Oct 10, 2009

I've got HP dv7-2043cl laptop. I want to find out what max GPU temp do you guys get, when you put stress on the graphics card. I am interested only in DV7-2xxx series with Ati Mobility 4650. Mine is around 46-48 when idle. Temp goes up to 70-74 in around three minutes when I run the Fur Mark stability test (1600x900, MSAA 8x, post processing and xtreme burning turned on). Clocks are at stock frequencies.

I wouldn't care about the temperature (it is not actually that high), but I have a problem. The computer just turns off when I play some games. For instance, if I play Fallout 3 at ultra settings (1600x900, 8x msaa, hdr), the computer powers off after a couple of minutes. Same thing with Crysis Warhead at high setting (1280x720, no msaa), even Half-Life 2 at max settings! When I lower the resolution in Fallout 3 to 1280x720 and MSAA to 4x, everything seems to be fine. Same thing with Half-Life 2. No similar luck with Crysis though. Looks like Crysis utilizes every single bit out of the GPU in any case.

HP/Compaq :: Unable To Monitor Sound On DV5

Apr 12, 2009

I'm having an issue with the sound on my new DV5.

I can record via the mic, using something like the inbuilt Sound Recorder software, and the saved file contains the correct recording. However I'm not able to monitor that sound via the speakers (or headphones or external speakers).

As I'm hoping to use the laptop for music making this is a big issue - for example
plugging a synth into the mic socket means that I can record the synth, but can't actually hear what I'm playing during the recording.

I've tried using a couple of professional audio applications but it's the same issue - there's no ability to monitor the input audio.

The mic socket works - as it's recording. And the hardware is able to monitor the sound - as I have heard a burst of the input sound occasionally when accessing help files or software settings when in the applications.

It sounds like a software glitch...or do you think this could be duff hardware? I don't have this problem on my desktop XP machine.

HP/Compaq :: Using Toshiba TV As Monitor For Mylaptop

Jan 18, 2010

I have a Toshiba 22AV600U hooked to my HP Dv5 laptop with an HDMI cable. I have configured my laptop so that it will "Do Nothing" when the lid is closed.

With the laptop lid openend, the TV works perfectly! The resolution is what it is supposed to be. I am able to set the TV up as a clone or as a desktop extension with no problems. Also, I am able to have the TV as the sole monitor (the laptop is blank), but the lid is still open. When I close the lid, I get a "unsupported video signal". Again, everything functions normally when the lid is open, I only get problems when the lid is closed.

Originally, when closing the lid, the resolution on the TV wasn't correct. It would work with the lid closed, but the resolution was off. After fiddling with the resolution, I have changed something somewhere along the line and now all I get is the "unsupported video signal".

Although I would prefer that the resolution be correct with the lid close, I would take messed up resolution as opposed to "unsupported video signal".

HP/Compaq :: DV6000 Dual Monitor

Jun 10, 2009

I'm trying to set up dual monitors, and can't seem to get it to work.

I'm using a external LCD with a DVI->VGA converter plugged into the laptop. The LCD knows there's a signal as when I plug it in it just goes blank as opposed to the "no signal" screen.

However the laptop doesn't seem to detect it. When I go to graphics properties it says "Multiple Display, blah blah, please connect another display". And there's no tab for another monitor or anything.

HP/Compaq :: Connecting External Monitor To DV9700

Mar 24, 2009

how to get an external monitor working with a HP DV9700 laptop? The screen is cracked and it's totally white, so I'm unable to do anything through the BIOS, desktop, etc.

I've tried Fn-f4 and every other f button combination.

The laptop is plugged into the mains, so there should be sufficient power for an external monitor.

I've also re-booted the laptop with the monitor connected and switched on.

There is no option to switch on the laptop with the lid closed, due to the position of the on-off switch.

The laptop is not networked, so I can't access the hard drive any other way.

I try it without the battery (not sure why?), but that didn't work either.

HP/Compaq :: HDX16t Monitor Makes Noise

May 4, 2009

This thread will be very exclusive to those who may have an SSD in their HDX16T.

Particularly and Intel SSD X25-M.

Ever since I've got the intel SSD this HDX16t monster is DAMN quiet. And I mean not even whisper quite, its like the notebook is NOT-ON-quite.

That's how dead silent this notebook really is.

The thing/issue is that I began to notice that the monitor makes this constant buzz when it's on. And it only get louder when the brightness goes up.

It's not very loud at all. You'd have to put your ear about 3 inches away in order to hear it. But the fact that it does.

However, I would of never been able to hear the monitor noise with a regular HDD and I'd be totally fine with that. A regular HDD is way to loud now that I've been on SSD for a while.

But the fact that I can hear it makes it weird.

I can almost be sure that if you do not have an SSD, you'd not be able to hear what I am talking about. If you can hear it with a regular HDD, then your monitor must be SUPER loud.

Check back with me to see if you can hear this noise if any of youSSD users on the HDX16T out there.

HP/Compaq :: Dv2315nr Default Monitor And Display Driver

Jun 15, 2009

About a month ago my screen cracked and the warranty is up. I had a spare CRT laying around so I just plugged it into that and it worked just fine as a substitute. However, today I had to reformat for various reasons and I did so using a friend's similar model laptop by putting my hard drive in it. After I got windows up and running I put the hard drive back in my machine and took it home.

After trying it out with the external monitor I've come to the conclusion that the standard vga driver does not support multiple monitors and therefore not my external (since the laptop still believes that the LCD is plugged in and functional even without any of the LCD wires plugged into the motherboard).

As it is the external blinks on during POST like should when the VGA port is tested. I'm sure I could solve this problem by disabling the LCD monitor in BIOS but since I can't see anything that is not possible.

It seems the only solutions left to me are:

1. Buying a new LCD
2. Buying/finding a new laptop
3. Some crazy hardware magic to disable the default LCD and let the external display during POST so I can get to BIOS and/or Windows Safe Mode
