HP/Compaq :: HP 8510P Running Very Warm/Hot
I just received my 8510P, it's built very well, looks and runs great.
But the heat of the palmrest and touchpad area is a bit bothersome.
The temps look fine, but who am I to believe the screen, or my hands?
I could not imagine resting this on my lap, the heat at the bottom is quite hot.
I'm just wondering if anyone has experienced similar heat from this laptop.
Perhaps there is a fan issue I need to take care of...

Dell :: E6500 Running Slow When Warm
I'm having an issue where my E6500 w. NVS and P9600 CPU runs slow when it gets warm.
In a 30degC ambient room I only have to work the machine for a few minutes before the CPU slows down. I get an event log like -
Log Name: System
Date: 21/02/2009 4:43:38 PM
Event ID: 7
Task Category: (7)
The speed of processor 0 is being limited by system firmware. The processor has been in this reduced performance state for 71 seconds since the last report.
After that the CPU is locked to 31% speed. If the load on the CPU continues it will get even slower.
You can also see this in Performance Monitor on Vista, or Resource Monitor on Windows 7, as below-
Temps in the system arent (IMO) getting too high, either-
Same thing in Vista SP1 x64 and Windows 7 Beta x64. Running the latest firmware (A11). On Vista I've tried running with and without all the Dell garbage and get the same result.
HP/Compaq :: Dv6870 Running Hot. Normal
I have an HP dv6870 (dual core AMD). It overheated a few weeks ago and shut down. I notice now that the fans are always running. I don't remember this being a problem before. Core temp says my cpus are running around 180F degrees. TL-64 is the processor model.
HP/Compaq :: DV20001 Of 2 Cores Running Hot
I noticed it was running really really hot, almost painful to hold your fingers against the rear fan vent. So I ran SpeedFan and sure enough the temps were whacked out:
1st core at reasonable temps (30ish)
2nd core from 65 - 90!
I tried following the disassembly guide for the DV2xxxx series here to take a look at the heatsink contact and fan but I got stuck at the logic board. (One of the disconnected WLAN antenna cables is impossible to fish out from the chasis, and after removing all connections, the logic board refused to budge fully)
So I just went nuts with compressed air on the exposed parts of the fan/heatsink, but that only helped a bit, temps on that core were still at a constant 65+ but the other core was at 30-35 and all other components were at okay temps...
HP/Compaq :: Dv5t CPU Running Too Hot
Fan on the DV5t
My CPU is hitting 97 degrees while playing games, and idles at around 75 degrees. the only problem is this time is that the vents are clear because more air blows out of them than previously. raising the laptop doesnt help much... it only knocks about 5 degrees off and still hits in the 90 degree range. could there possibly be a problem with my laptop because it shouldnt really be hitting 97 because according to intel the thermal specification for the P7350 is 90 degrees...
Dell :: GPU Running VERY Hot
I have an m1530 that I bought back in june of 2008 with an nvidia 8600GT. In the past few months my gpu temps have been rising while I have been gaming. Its even gotten up to 98C while playing WoW, which makes the game really choppy and unplayable.
I can get the temps down to around 90C while gaming if I keep a box fan pointed at the bottom of the laptop, kind of like a poor mans cooler. How can I get my temps down? What SHOULD they be at while gaming?
Dell :: Why Is My Laptop Running So Hot Idle
For the past few days, I woke up to my laptop's fan rather loud spinning. I noticed that my computer was constantly at 100% CPU usage even with like literally no processes opened, and it's idling ~50C.
It's to the point where moving my mouse across the screen lags, the pointer jumps from one spot to another.
I'm not really sure what the problem is, I ran AVG with no problem, and I don't remember doing anything to my computer in the past few days that would be considered abnormal...in fact, the only thing I did do was try to use a screensaver for the first time ever, but I turned it off with no difference,
Dell :: Inspiron 1721 Running Hot?
So my mom has a 17" Inspiron 1721 from like August 2007. I have been using it off and on for the past year or so, I just today got my Studio XPS 16" 1647 :-)
But anyways, her laptop seems to run a little (burning hot to me). It's not all the time, but all she did was play farmville on Facebook for maybe 2 hours, and it's burning hot to the touch. (Half of the time it was plugged in.
Dell :: Inspiron 1720 Running Extremely Hot
lately my Inspiron 1720 has been running crazy hot, and overheating (actually shutting down) while playing games (specifically Sacred 2).
For example right now I am only running Firefox and HWMonitor, and here is an excerpt from the HWMonitor report:
Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo T5750 hardware monitor
Temperature sensor 070°C (157°F) [0xF] (core #0)
Temperature sensor 175°C (166°F) [0xA] (core #1)
In fact shortly after saving that report, my computer actually shut down from heat. I have since restarted it and it is currently running at a roughly constant 52C.
The CPU gets into the 70s and overheats a lot when playing Sacred 2. However, strangely even after closing that game the temperature doesn't come down, such as what happened above .....
Dell :: 1730 Graphics Card Running Hot
I found out why my 8800s were running hot. Ater I removed the card and removed the fans I found a WALL of DUST built up between the fan and heatsink. You couldnt see it from the outside at all.
I know I have previously blown air through the heatsing but for some reason it didnt clear it out. I should have taken a picture because it looked like a blanket or air filter sandwiched between their .....
Dell :: Studio 14z BBY Model Running Hot
The S1440/Studio 14z is constantly running hot for me. It is running the fan all the time and very hot air blowing. I can also hear the hard drive making some noise some times ...Is this sign of trouble. I just i have 1 browser and IM client running and no video or audio streaming going one. The fan is constantly running & blowing hot air...
Anyone facing the same issues..Should i try getting an exchange from BBY ...I would appreciate any tweaks which may be needed to make it work cooler. It is hot to the extent of uncomfortable on lap.
Dell :: M1730 Running Very Slow+hot When Playing Games?
I've taken apart from 1730 and made sure there was no dust and its quite clean, its sitting up at the back so air is flowing through under it but when playing games all on low settings (playing demigod)
it still slows down when a lot is happening on screen, and the laptop gets extremely hot - even some parts are too hot to touch.
Dell :: Vostro 1500 Running Too Hot, Cleaned And AS5'ed Already
I have a secondary laptop, my vostro 1500 and it is running pretty damn hot IMO.
With only the 1.6 and 8600m gt it is running at 60C core 1 70C core 2 and 40C GPU at idle.
I just cleaned out all dust and re-artic silvered it and there has been little change. Infact this is the second time, I thought I might have done something wrong the first time so I did it again and no improvement.
HP/Compaq :: Warning: Hdx Gets Warm
i got my new hdx and i decided to buy a game for it as well. I popped in warhammer:dawn of war 2 and it played well on mostly ultra-high settings. however the machine gets HOT after playing for about and hour. i also experienced this while playing crysis. it could have something to do with my cpu running at 45w but idk. anyways so i continued to play a little more warhammer and then i started seeing artifacts on my screen. before i knew it my screen was unviewable as the artifacts took over. I thought i was buring up my gpu so i quickly logged out of the game. my screen was still artifact filled so i turned off the computer and rebooted. everything seems to be fine till this moment and i think im very lucky. now i have my hdx raised up on all 4 corners with small business cards and i have my fan blowing at the bottom of the laptop from the right side. (This fan is blowing the same direction that the laptop fan blows). i also put my battery in front the of the fan so that would kool as well. so i decided to give warhammer another shoot. i played it for 2.5 hrs straight and the computer remains cooler that i expected. the battery too is way cooler. i would say my cheap cooling system worked after all.
Dell :: M4400 Bios A13 Hot Hot Hot!
I upgraded my M4400 Bios from A06 to A13 when it came out a week or so ago and was initially really happy about the much lessened fan usage.
But since then my computer gets so hot that its impossible to keep it on my lap even after 15 minutes of use.
That I could still handle but the keyboard and the palm rests get pretty hot and it feels very uncomfortable.
HP/Compaq :: Perplexing-with 8510p
I have this 8510p with the 1680x1050 screen. Its been a great computer, and have only had it for about 5 months.
All of a sudden one day weird characters fill the screen on boot up between the bios start up and windows start up. Basically the screen is filled with 8-10 characters then a space, repeated over and over again. Some of the characters randomly change. And now I have a dotted line of red pixels flashing on the top of my screen. the line is about 20 pixels high and about an inch from the top of the screen.
More weirdly is that the flashing is happening in time to any activity on the computer. I am a network engineer and have worked my way up through small computer support but I have never seen anything like this before.
So when the computer is totally inactive the screen is great.
Is the inventor in the screen going bad? Or is it my installation of vista 64?
I don't think its the windows installation because I can see some weird video characters before windows even starts up. I have tried to reinstall the video drivers and most of the other drivers with no effect.
HP/Compaq :: 8510p Hardware Upgrading
I'm using my 8510p. I was smart enough to buy an extended warranty, and it has proven to be quite usefull. (2 screen repairs and a new GPU.)
Now, over the time I have upgraded my notebook. The main HDD was upgraded with a 640GB drive, and I replaced my DVD/CD drive with a special bracket that allows you to install an extra Hard drive. Until so far, all these upgrades could easily be reversed for warranty purposes.
Now, I'm thinking about upgrading my original WSXGA+ screen with a WUXGA screen. (1680x1050 to 1920x1200) As since I'm using my computer a lot for graphical applications and CAD related stuff.
Now, I found a supplier that can supply me the screen, but he only recommends me to change my screen with something of the same resolution. He fears that the inverter may not be able to pull the higher resolution, nor my motherboard/gpu fail to recognize the new part.
Do you guy's think that this upgrade could be possible?
Personnaly I would go for it, since the 8510p was offered with a WUXGA screen, and the CCFL of the new screen would be exactly the same as the (current) WSXGA+ screen.
HP/Compaq :: Hp 8510p & 500 Gb Hd
I want to upgrade my HD for my 8510P to 500GB.
I want to get 7200RPM and 16mb Cache.
Will a drive with this specs work on my machine? I have the latest bios revision? Will it work perfectly fine if i just swap and install a fresh copy of Windows 7? Also which is the best drive to get? I am thinking of the Seagate Momentus 500gb.
HP/Compaq :: 8510p Harddisk Upgradecompatibility
since i experienced some major problems last weekend on my 8510p gb967ea win xp pro sp3 notebook, i am forced to reinstall the os and i thought this would be a good chance to replace the 5400rpm 160gb drive (sata), especially in order to try out win7 on a big enough partition.
now i called hp and they told me that the maximum possbile would be a 250gb 5400rpm drive or a 200gb 7200rpm drive (which is set inside bios). i definitely would upgrade to a 7200 rpm (if not to a velociraptor or an ssd), but for just a 40gb gain this wouldnt really be worth it, as i will get the new 8540p notebook as soon as they are released with windows 7 and some satisfying hardware (dx11 gpu!), if they get this hardware, which i hope..
so does anyone know whether i should try a bigger drive (i would go for at least a 250gb 7200rpm drive, better 320gb or 500gb) and maybe check compatibility while in the store in order to give it back if it doesnt work, or leave the 160gb 5400rpm drive and wait for the new models?
or is there any way to extend the compatibility restricted inside bios (using the most recent ver. f.15/dec 08 now)?
HP/Compaq :: Battery- 8510p AfterBattery Check
I need a new battery for my 8510p. Something very odd happened. I noticed that my battery has seemed to not last for very long these days. I saw HP's battery check software on their site and downloaded it. At the time I started the check, the battery was at 93%. The software determined that the battery needs to be replaced. The odd thing is that after I took the laptop off of the dock to check it's wireless connection, the battery charge plummeted (within a couple of minutes) to 11%, where it has remained ever since and refuses to charge beyond that. It's almost as though the software pushed it over the edge somehow.
HP/Compaq :: 8510p Gfx (mobility Hd2600)
i have a hp 8510p business notebook (gb967ea#akn) with a mobility radeon hd2600 - 256mb, winxp pro sp3 32bit. cpu intel core 2 duo t9300 2,5ghz, 4gb ram (2x2048mb kingston ddr2 800mhz).
i use original ati (desktop) drivers by adding
"ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600" = ati2mtag_RV630, PCIVEN_1002&DEV_9581
to the cn_####.inf file of the driver (currently 9.2) and installing ccc afterwards.
this assures me best possible performance (eg. ca. 100-200 points higher 3dmark06 score than other people get with the same notebook) and no errors/problems until now.
now i have 2 questions..
first regarding hypermemory, which should be 512mb according to hp.
ccc, sysinfo, siw from gotpala.com etc. all say my hd2600 has 256mb. Internal DAC 400mhz. ccc says core clock 500mhz, memory clock 600mhz. i heard people saying ccc showing total possible memory (= dedicated AND hypermemory) as memory size on their notebooks........
HP/Compaq :: Spilled Iced Tea In 8510p
around a month ago i spilled some iced tea in my laptop. first i thought it was gone, but then i dried it out and it mostly works. i turned it on within the 24 hour period, but it mostly works.
it boots up and i can install the OS. problem is that whenever i move the touchpad it's like the left mouse button is always clicked and it's a constant select on everything i scroll over. i tried replacing the touchpad and using only a USB mouse but it doesn't work.
new touchpad does the same thing and USB mouse won't work in the OS. it will work during installing the OS, but once in the OS it stops working.
HP/Compaq :: 8510p Lid Open Action
if it was possible to get the laptop to wake up when the lid is opened? Currently, you can put it to sleep by closing the lid, but when you open the lid you have to push the power button to wake it back up. I haven't seen any option in the power settings to do this either.
HP/Compaq :: 8510p Touchpad Erratic When Plugged In
I had to buy a replacement HP AC adapter because the original one stopped working. So I went out and bought the HP 90w AC/Auto/Air Smart Adapter (The box says 8510p is compatible).
When I plug in the laptop, the touchpad seems to go out of whack and jumps around at times. When I remove the AC power, the touchpad works perfectly.
There are a couple of differences written on the back of the adapters:
Output (Original Adapter): 19V / 4.74A
Output (Replacement): 19.5V / 4.62A
It is an Authentic HP replacement part (KS474AA #ABA / 481197-002).
HP/Compaq :: 8510p Has Lost Screen Dimming/brightening Functions
I have an HP Compaq 8510p, T7300, running Windows XP Pro. In the last day or so I noticed that pressing the fn+Fx key combos to dim or brighten the screen are no longer working. Nor is the battery status key combo. Volume and mute seem fine. Wireless is fine. The "Info" and "Presentation" keys as well as the sleep combo all appear to be working as usual. But the 3 mentioned above have stopped working. Has anyone had this issue or have any idea what the problem might be?
HP/Compaq :: 8510p- Both CPUs Shot Up To 100 Percent And Everything Became Horribly Slow
I purchased an 8510p
It first started when I was doing a light activity (word processing). What happened was both CPUs shot up to 100 percent and everything became horribly slow. Left/right Clicking on an item or the Start orb might take 30 seconds or longer before it would work. Task Manager showed 100 percent CPU usage under performances, but sorting by CPU processes, only 10-15 percent was being used.
I restarted, and to my surprise, instead of the nice under 1 minute load time to the desktop, to took at least 15 minutes where both CPUs were constantly at 100 percent. Safe mode was also very sluggish, where I stopped non-essential processes with msconfig. So I yanked my HDD and did a backup just so I wouldn't lose anything. After a few hours of the 8510p sitting, I put back the HDD and the machine worked perfectly for about an hour, then both CPUs shot up again to 100 percent. Once the issue happens, it occurs everytime I reboot regardless of how I boot into Windows. After being powered off for 4 or more hours (or overnight), It might work for an hour or so and then become horribly sluggish, or it might start out being sluggish, too. (BTW, no viruses)
So I got on the instant chat with HP support and told them about my issue. My tech had me switch out my 2 gigs of RAM with another laptop, but that didn't fix the loading issue. He said it needed to be sent in, so I received my box last Tuesday. On Wednesday, I got a call from HP saying my machine was fine and the only problem was my battery was dead and that would cost me 212 dollars (I don't know where they pulled that number, because a new battery on their website is 109). Great, the time it would actually work for an hour, it works perfectly there. I told them that I didn't need a new battery (I pretty much use it as a desktop at home), but that there was some other issue. She said she would email the "advanced" repair guys to look at my machine...
HP/Compaq :: HP 8510p, MXM Upgrade -> Nvidia Quadro 770M, Blank Screen
I just received from ebay a nvidia Quadro 770M 512MB
as an upgrade for my HP 8510p which currently has ATi HD2600 256MB.
Both cards are MXM II (physically fit) however I'm afraid that this VGA is not on whitelist so it's not going to work - I only get blank screen, no error message, no POST, no chance of entering BIOS. I read that there is some tool that can modify BIOS - something called HP Tattoo utility however maybe it's obsolete now and has been replaced by some other utility - I can't even download it anywhere.
Dell :: System Getting Warm
Then it's time to go through and clean out your system! My M170 has been running warm just idleing. Start up a game and keboard feels like it's going to catch fire! Looking at Fangui, I was hitting 80C on the CPU side, and 110C on the GPU side while gaming.
Idle was sitting at 44C CPU, and 60C GPU. Not good! I'm honestly surprised that my system just didn't straight up melt through my desk! But, this is testament that the 7800GTX and a pin-modded 1.7>2.26 can take the heat.
I took the thermite paperweight with me to work today, tore it down completely, and was just bewildered by how much dust was trapped in the heatsink fins. The fans were coated with dust, but weren't too bad. And the grills on the case just needed a good wiping.
Looking from the outside, you just can't see the amount of dust those fins are able to trap in the case.
Also while it was torn down, I re-gooped the GPU/CPU's (cleaning off the previous AS5), and then put the system back together. I'll admit, I'm not using AS5 this time around.
Instead, I bought some off brand stuff from the local computer boutique. After reassembly, Fangui was showing temps of 32C CPU and 38C GPU. Much better! Played some Call of Duty 2 and Gears of War and the system didn't even break a sweat! After 15 minutes of gaming, my M170 was running a fairly cool 55C CPU and 78C GPU!
Now I can finish CoD 2 tonight (beat it before, just going through it again before I start CoD4), and play some more GoW without the system crashing!
CoD2 is running buttery smooth at 1920x1200, max settings, and GoW is sitting on 1280x720 w/ max settings...no slow down in the intense fire fights, and the game just looks remarkable.
Apple :: Unibody Is Getting Warm With Low Usage
I have my macbook pro getting pretty hot without much usage.
Eg. I am on integrated graphics right now and my cpu usage is roughly 30 percent (inclusive of system and user) and nothing is very intensive. Just a couple of firefox tabs in a firefox process, colloquy and itunes. I have about a 70 degree CPU temp and a 57 degree GPU temp on the 9400M.
It gets worse when I go on discrete and do the same things. My CPU often hits 80-90 degrees with my GPU being right htere at about 70. I'm pretty sure i need to get this checked out, but does anyone else have the same issue as me?
Dell :: Studio 1557... Hot, HOT, Don`t Burn Yourself!
I`ve just recived my 1557 and after 4 days of using it i can tell you this...
I HATE IT! I can`t really use it without overheating! I`m an Industrial Design student, and i use a lot PS, Solidworks, 3dMax, and various rendering engines. While using them, just after 5 o 6 minutes of rendering, the laptop overheats and turns off.
Just when it starts, core temperature rounds 73/75 degrees celcius... it reaches about 93 while rendering... and i can`t even tell when i`m gaming (i used gta san andreas for 10 minutes before ati 4570 reached 105 degrees and core about 90, then it shutted off). I`m so annoyed.... this really bothers me, in a few weeks i`ve to get back to work and university, and i have a usless "POWERFUL" machine!
I need recommendations for a new laptop, because i`m going to send thisone back next week. I don`t care if it is apple, asus, or hp, i need something wich i can really use, and i need it to be just as powerful as this (or a little less, i don`t care, as long as it really works and do de JOB).
My budget is arround 1500 US dollars.
My 1557 Specs: Core i7 720QM, 4gb DDR3 1066, 320gb 7200rpm, ATi 4570.
HP/Compaq :: HP 8510p HDMI, Passthrough Dolby Digital, DTS To Amp --->
I have a HP 8510p (XP32) that works really fine. The only thing that I can not make it happen is that whatever I try I can not get the DD, DTS work between my laptop HDMI and my receive. I recieive only stereo (Audio HDMI OUT is selected).
1) How on earth can I get DTS/DD from my laptop HDMI when i play a mkv with DTS/DD audio?
2) If I connect the laptop to the TV via HDMI and the laptop to my amp via optical, can it make the trick? (the only problem here is that, my laptop does not have optical out, just HDMI and analog, but using a docking station i can have optical out...)
HP/Compaq :: HP Dv5T Getting Hot
I am getting quite scared about my hp dv5t its getting really hot. The cpu is always at 50-mostly around 65 degrees doing normal work. I keep it on a targus cooler sometimes, but when im on campus I can only use the bare desk. I have undervolted the computer and the gpu is fine always maxing out at around 60 degrees and the harddrive is always at like 40. How do I keep this cpu from getting so high? It makes the computer really hot. Anything like undervolting, or anything free would be a + point.
HP/Compaq :: Dv5t- Always Runs Hot
so i've got a dv5t. i have the notebook raised up 6 inches in the back while on a desk, and i've also got it undervolted (down to 1.0250V on the 9x actually) and this machine always runs hot. hotter while in games (which makes sense.) but even while just browsing the net, it gets hot.
HP/Compaq :: Why Is My Laptop So Hot- Hp Dv5t
hp dv5t - about 8 months old

this picture is WITH a small undervolt and WITH antec cooling fan
ignore that min, probably a glitch
atm the only real "load" i have running is firefox, digsby (IM client), and itunes. only real cpu usage (through task manager) is firefox. when i exit everything and have nothing running, it use to idle at around 70C but after undervolt i can get it to around 60C
HP/Compaq :: DV4T 9200M GS Very Hot
I understand that the dv4t has heat issues, but is 77 degrees Celsius normal for the GPU? The HD hovers at 60 as well. CPU temps are in the 30s at idle and 40s under load.
I've already had the laptop serviced once for heat issues, but they've returned.

HP/Compaq :: Dv5t ALWAYS Runs Too Hot
my dv5t ALWAYS runs too hot. atm with just normal web browsing and listening to music my cores and GPU are at 80C and this is WITH an antec laptop cooler
my specs are P8600, 3gb ram, 9600GT, 320gb 7200rpm
just talked to several friends with gaming laptops and macbook pros...no one runs higher than 70C with just normal usage and they don't use a cooler or anything.
HP/Compaq :: Pavillion DV6 Super Hot
I actually have a Alienware but my baby has a Pavillion DV6 1100SO.
It's working ok, but it get so so hot! and for sure the fan are really hectics
There are something to do, one can of trick, fix or something? I'm going to buy her a fan dock, like antec, etc...
I'm thinking maybe to remove the cloth from the vento holes, the one that protect it from dust. I did it with my Alienware and it works.
