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.

Dell :: XPS M1530 Temp Readings

May 9, 2009

I just opened up Speedfan and HWMonitor at the same time, and I notice they give different readings.

I've seen Speedfan report the CPU temp as high as 90. Whilst the machine is warm, I highly doubt this is correct.

I've had the machine on my lap whilst doing this and yeah, its pretty warm, but its not boiling ..

HP/Compaq :: Monitoring Software (cpu Load, Cpu Temp, Hdd Temp) For HP

Apr 19, 2009

Got my self a new HP DV5-1110, Athlon X2, 3450.

But can anybody recommend any good monitoring software for Vista, 32bit?

On my desktop I use "dtemp", to show the harddrive temp in the sys tray, but dtemp cant read the hdd temp on my HP

And an another program for showing the cpu load or/and cpu clock in the sys tray..? tried NHC 2 pre 06, but it hangs when I go to settings to configure the program..

Dell :: 7900GS With A GTX Bios Temperature Readings Correct

Jan 3, 2008

Im using the Juan Lu bioses on my Inspiron and with 7900GS bios with a voltmod the temps were coming up to 91C (the clocks were 520/750 more or less). And then i decided to flash it with a gtx bios with a volt mod - and it works! It lets me overclock a little higher (like 580/750, but it seems that its not very stable though...) and the temps are a lot lower! 69-73C. I once saw it go up to 86C, but thats that. Also the idle temps went down from 63C to 54C. So my question is - is this real? This is a huge difference, video bios can do that? Or mayby... somethings mixed up with the sensors and theyre not giving the correct temps?

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 :: G60-244DX- 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 :: 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 :: Dv5t Losing Internet Connect Constantly

Apr 4, 2009

My notebook has recently been losing internet connection very often. I don't have to move or anything, it just loses connection. I have a verizon fios router, i've had this notebook since September 08' and never had this problem before. My signal strength is full.

My device manager says my network adapters are:

-Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN
-RealTek RTL8168(C)P/8111(C)P Family PCI-E GBE NIC

Could it have something to do with my wireless mouse? If I switch it to wired mode, my laptop still loses connection to the internet.

Also, as a side question, how do i stop windows update from trying to install the same update over and over?

Dell :: Video Card FlickerVIDEOS INCLUDED

Sep 5, 2007

Here are the videos. They are god-awful small and blurry, BUT you can still clearly see the distortion. I'm also using a unregistered version of a cropping software to make the files small enough to upload to yourfilehost.com, so there are banners on them. They are also pretty darn short snippets (1 or 2 seconds each... I need to lrn2compress)

[url]

This is me flying towards a red carpet in Shatt. Zoomed in on the carpet.

[url]

A building flickering at range in Battlefield 2142.

[url]

The waterline and metal textures of a boat flickering in SH4.

[url]

The flicker I experience between character selections on the WoW Character Selection screen. It is a brief frame between each character.

[url]

Another boat from SH4, showing the flicker disappear as I zoom closer.

All of these flickers, with the exception of the character screen flicker, disappear if I get close to the texture, which is why I HIGHLY suspect some problem with the z-buffer. Still, I am at a loss as to how to solve it.

I run Warcraft at 1920x1200 resolution, and the other two at 1600x1200 resolution.

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.

Dell :: M1530 Fan Constantly Turning On And Off

Feb 10, 2009

I just did a full clean install today to remove Ubuntu. I put vista 64 bit on and reinstalled all the system drivers.

I took the laptop upstairs to watch 1 episode of the simpsons(23 min long) and during the whole episode, the fan would go on for 2-3 seconds, turn off for 4 seconds, turn back on for 2-3 seconds. This is extremely annoying as my parents are sleeping, its quiet in the house and while watching the episode I can hear the fan turn on and off.

Occasionally the fan will stay on the 5-8 seconds then turn off for 4 sec.

I love the unit otherwise but find this verry annoying. I've 'tweaked' vista to get it running quick, I'm set on Power Saver mode, LCD screen brightness low and just have IE open with the show playing.

I do believe I have Bios A12 installed also.

Dell :: M1330, Fan Suddenly Constantly On

Nov 3, 2009

About two weeks ago I noticed my Dell M1330 fan was constantly running on the slow speed. Whatever I did, it just wouldn't shut up. Especially when I was running a graphically demanding game, the fan would go nuts, running at maximum power.

I followed a tutorial to clean the dust out of the fan but it didn't fix anything. Today, I got frustrated with it, followed a tutorial to undervolt my CPU, downgraded my nVidia drivers to 167.45 (which apparently lowers GPU temp) and installed I8Kfan to try and fix it.

With I8Kfan, it is kind of like it used to be. I've had the computer for a year and six months and before this it was running almost completely silently unless I was watching a long movie/using heaps of tabs in a web browser/etc. Now, if I don't have I8Kfan set to kick the fans in at 60c they go all the time.

I even tried downgrading my BIOS to A14 because I read here that it could help. Still, no dice.

Dell :: Constantly Blinking HDD LED On E5500

but there are not any processes.Because of the mentioned reasons, this could not be because of indexing, or pagefile (additionally I have tried to turn them off, and blinking remained)

I've reported this issue to Dell, and the HDD was replaced, but I still can experience the blinking.

Acer :: Fan Starts And Stops Constantly

Jan 6, 2009

Model: Acer Aspire 4720-4538

The CPU fan is totally off when the CPU temp is under 55C (according to Everest). Once it's over 55C, it goes onto its low setting. Somewhere higher up, it goes to its high setting.

The problem: Even just browsing the web and doing light desktop work (IM, Explorer, Word), the CPU temp creeps up to 55C pretty easily. Once it does, the fan shoots on, but it only takes about 3 seconds to get to below 55C, so it shuts off again. Without the fan, the temp goes up past 55C again, and the cycle restarts.

The result is an on-off-on-off-on-off fan that turns on or stays off for only about 2-5 seconds at a time. REALLY annoying, esspecially in an otherwise quiet library environment. I can see people looking over at me with a "what the f is wrong with your computer" look.

I've updated the BIOS to its latest as of this date (Jan 06 2009) on the Acer site (3810), that didn't help any.

I've read (on this site) that Acer uses something propertiary to control their fan, causing normal fan control software to not work on Acer's.

Does anybody know of any software that will let me control the speed of the fan? I tried the fan control software for the Acer Aspire One, which didn't seem to work.

I've noticed my laptop has been running quite hot recently so I downloaded a thing called Speedfan, which tells me my CPU is running at 70-80 degrees C. Isn't this really, REALLY hot for a laptop? I really don't want it to overheat and break

I first noticed it and found that it was maxing out at 82 degrees, and the movie I was watching was getting jumpy. I was using WMP, MSN, Internet explorer for basic browsing, with Vuze running in the background. The most I ever use. This is my specification:

Acer Aspire 5535

Shouldn't this laptop be able to handle these tasks without getting so hot?

But basically, but something is constantly on even when I just have the laptop on with a few IE windows, you can especially feel it just to the left of the touchpad. From time to time, I will also hear the the noise coming from it and it till slow down, then start up again.
I mean, its not a big issue, but is something wrong with the laptop?
This happens when the CPU load is as low as just 5%, temperatures around 42-45 degrees Celsius.

Dell :: Studio 1535- Fan Now Runs Constantly

Jan 21, 2009

In the last two weeks or so, the fan on my Studio 15 (1535) has been running continuosly. Even when it's under little/no load for extended periods of time, the fan stays on at higher-than-low-speed (from the sound)?

I've had it for about four months and this wasn't an issue until very recently. I have updated the BIOS twice (A02 to A03, then A03 to A06) and wonder if the most recent update was the culprit. I skipped A05 initially, but a few days ago I re-flashed using A05 to see if that might fix the issue- no dice! I'm debating whether I should go back to A03 and see if that does the trick?

But I don't want to keep arbitrarily flashing the BIOS over and over if there's no chance of it fixing the fan issue.

Anyone else have similar issues with the fan running constantly? Any suggestions on how to fix or, at least, mitigate the problem?

FYI- I always use the laptop on a flat, hard surface (desk or wooden lap-desk) to allow proper heat dissipation. I have also tried elevating the back of the system by 1/2-inch or so to improve airflow- NADA!
