HP/Compaq :: DV2 - Temps A Little High After Updating
Jul 22, 2009
Alright, so to start off I'll just say that I love the DV2. I bought the dual core version loaded when it first went up for customization at the HP site. I have, however, noticed that it can run a tad hot.
When I first got it, without a cooler, the CPUs usually went from between 41c-45c from light usage, and the GPU from between 51c-55c. Even when propping the back up I only saw a drop of 1c total. I bought a small cooler for it and saw a fairly good drop. The temps of the CPU where down to 36c-39c and the gpu was down to 45c-49c with both sometimes even going lower depending on how much the AC in the house was on.
I did try some gaming on this, playing some HL2. The CPU got to 60c at the highest and the GPU also only got to about 60c while on the cooling pad.
So, a few days ago I updated my BIOS to the latest on for the DV2 from the HP site. I noticed right away that my temps where higher. The temps while on my cooler where the same as they used to be without it, and with the cooler off the GPU was getting up to 60c while at idle. I tried a few things, like setting the GPU to low power mode with the Catalyst controls, but that didn't help.
Not sure what to do I noticed this morning that I hadn't gotten SP2 for Vista yet. So I decided to get it in hopes that it would help.. now my DV2 is even hotter. On the cooling pad my CPU was at around 60c and GPU was at 65c while at idle. I've had it on all day, with all the vents in my room open and the AC up high and the lowest it's gotten is to 50c for the CPU and 55 for the GPU.
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?
My cpu core hits the mid 90's when gaming. i undervolted it to 1100v @ 11x and the temps only hit the high 80's/low 90's during gaming but hit the mid nineties in orthos and was still going up.
This is getting me down a bit cus the cpu ramps down during gaming and screws up the fps, and also im outside of the uk so cant get my laptop to dell (there are no dell suppliers where i am)
does anyone have any idea what might be wrong. am i reading the temps correctly? speedfan shows much lower temps (in the 70s) however cpuz, rightmark and hwmonitor all show temps consistent with eachother.
Its a t7500.
there's nothing blocking the outake at the back; i lifted the laptop up during orthos to let air out of the bottom but it didnt make any difference.
I've built a few desktops but i havent really tinkered with this laptop apart from adding more ram.
My friend bought a Vostro 1700 a few years ago and now i own it, but in the last 6 month or so the temps are going through the roof, i switch it on and it starts off at about 72 degrees then┬ájust goes up to about 86 and stays there, i cleaned the fan, the vents and even put a new blob of thermal paste on the cpu but it still does the same. I just did the Dell PC Diagnostic test and it says there are no hardware problems at all..┬á
My CPU is hitting around 90┬░. Inside of the laptop is clean, isn't a dust issue. Could probably do with reapplying thermal paste. ┬á Most likely culprit, however, is the fan is not hitting full speed under Windows 7 x64 regardless of the CPU temps. ┬á It works fine in the BIOS before the W7 splashscreen starts, so it isn't a problem with the fan itself, but as soon as W7 begins booting the speed drops substantially (I can only just tell it's spinning) then stays there. Given Acer's unusual way of handling their fans Speedfan and similar are no use as the fans don't show up.I've updated to the latest BIOS and even tried installing the ePower application, but the problem is still there.
So my computer is hitting temps as high as 103 degrees Celcius according to atiTool. And by the way this is without overclocking. Its pretty clean inside (no dust and stuff). Im pretty site this is not normal...I may even call Dell about it. I have complete care for three years...
I have a Sony Vaio VGN-Z590 with windows 7 32 bit professional installed. When I switch to speed mode and hook up a monitor (24" dell LCD) via HDMI->DVI the graphics card temperature goes up to around 80-95C (measured with real temp 3.40) and the CPU temp also goes up into the 60-70s. No programs are using the CPU heavily. During this process the fans go up to max and the computer gets really loud. I have all the latest drivers installed and the latest BIOS.
I was wondering if anyone else has a problem like this? Would installing 64 bit windows 7 be better? It makes it really noisy when I hook up a monitor via HDMI. Any ideas?
Everything is perfect in stamina mode, low temps, low cpu usage.
Recently I have purchased the Acer v15 Nitro Black Edition gaming notebook. Though I've noticed that not very intensive games are stressing my CPU to about 80-90C, which I am not entirely certain is the norm. This seems to happen primarily when the laptop is plugged in, as temps seem relatively stable when unplugged. I recently turned my CPU power down a bit (to 96%), and that has seemed to keep my temps relatively stable.
I guess my question is: Is this normal? I feel like those temps are way too high, and I fear of burning out my CPU. I am going to pickup a cooling pad today, and start using it when I play games. I am relatively certain my fans are working, but my CPU temps jump around quite a bit. I know gaming laptops are built to get hot, but the last thing I want is to burn my new toy.
So I bought a sealed box 8530w off eBay. Now I know from previous HP business models that the warranty start date on the online lookup tool starts from the day the laptop was manufactured. This hasn't ever been an issue in the past, since I got previous laptops second hand anyway.
But this one is already nearly 6 months into its 3 year warranty. I guess it has been sitting around sealed in its box for a while.
1. Is there any way I can get HP to update the warranty start date? (I'm getting an invoice from the seller as we speak)
2. Assuming I can, will that new warranty start date be reflected in the online lookup?
3. Will the new warranty start date be transferable if I sell the laptop, or will it only apply to me, with my name on the invoice?
I recently bought the upgrade but this is the first time I am upgrading Windows as I usually do clean installs. Is there anything I should pay attention to? Are the drivers already there for Win7 and are there any known issues?
I did install HP newly released updating sp42660, but all docked usb ports are stll not in function. It might be caused by the previous MS Update HX2LP Kit, but i could not find the removing way for it now.
details for laptop: HP 8510w, advanced docking station, Vista Business x64
HP's envy 15 line with the ATI 5830 GPU (i7-720/820). I do have one big concern however, and that is heat. Could anyone post their max GPU / CPU / HD temps they usually get while running an intensive game / benchmark?
I have a dv5 that recently decided it didn't want to go to sleep when I closed the lid. I checked the settings to make sure they hadn't accidentally been changed, but it's still set to sleep. I have not made any other changes or installed any additional software. how I can get it back to sleep?
I'm using HWMonitor to monitor temps, and it does not show my hd temp. However, I am concerned about the temps it does show (THRM? and processor).
My dv5 used to run at an average of 80C, and saw temps as high as 95C while streaming video. I sent it in for repairs and the temps have since dropped, but still seem high (Currently 50C, high of 86C while streaming video). Should I send it back for repair- again?
While playing GTA4 for a while on my DV5 I notice my temps are kind of high. The CPU hits 75 and 73 for each core and my GPU hits 70. Are these temps low enough to consistently play the game or do I need to find better cooling solutions?
i got into reading about copper mod and from that thread i was pointed in the direction of undervolting thread.... well i decided to try it out
i read like the 1st 15 pages or so and decided to give it a try... downloaded orthos and HWmonitor, did a 100% cpu load for 20 minutes to find my max temp at load and i had 69*C highest on my core#1 (core#0 always seems to be cooler by 2-4*C almost all the time
The dv6000 I own had some known heating issues. I am already on the 2nd hard drive as I think the last one simply got fried. The laptop in general performs well. I am close to buying a new Sager gaming laptop but am thinking of holding off till early 2010. I'm a little worried about another overheating issue. Aside from work, every Sunday I stream NFL football at 720p. I live in Peru and only come to the US a couple times per year. I either need to buy a new laptop in the next month or likely hold off till April or so.
What are your thoughts on my hardware temps? When I took this screen capture I had a couple java application open (my typical work environment) and was streaming 720p flash based video for over an hour. Are these temps OK?
I should point out I now use a fan cooling pad since I replaced the hard drive. I also have some drivers from HP that supposedly addressed some of the heating issues.
I was given a dv6113us 2 weeks ago for free since it didn't work. It had the typical no video boot problem. I paid someone on ebay to fix the laptop for me for 80 bucks . Hp said I was out of warranty so they couldn't help me. The guy on eBay told me that he would basically reball and resolder my geforce 6150 chip on there. I sent it in last week, and I just got it back in the mail yesterday and all is working great except for some random freezing at times. The laptop will freeze for a minute every couple of minutes. The hard drive just stops reading out of nowhere, then starts again. Its a brand new hard drive. I was thinking this had to do with heat somewhere in the system.
I downloaded Core Temp and found that the CPU was running pretty cool on both cores. Around 40c with medium load. Then I downloaded GPU-Z and saw these insane temps! I couldn't believe my eyes! My GPU temps hover around from 97 degrees celsius to 109 degrees celsius.
Before I sent in the laptop I tried taking it apart and was stuck at the top cover. Something was holding it together by the track pad. I almost ripped the cover off but decided to give up and put it back together. Now that I found the post from MrFoo, NOW I know what was holding me back!
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...
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 HiJackThisLog:...................
I am using dv6570er for about year already, the problem is in core?acpi?gpu temperature; while typing this post speedfan shows temp1(acpi?)71*C; core0&core1 71*C; GPU 61*C. About an hour ago i disassembled him, cleaned motherboard, fan etc... then assembled, i was really happy when see speedfan showing 51*C but this doesn't last too long when i switched power plan (was "power economy") in mobility center to "High performance" temp scaled to 60*C same when changed to "Balanced" (before disassembly notebook i was getting 90*C in three seconds after swithching to Balanced/High perfomance plan and 65*C in power economy). When i bought this laptop he was showing only 35*C, what can be the reason of so high temperature?
