Having just got rid of a dv2104eu, i just got a dv6-1131ea, which is hitting 50-60 when idle, i just fired sims 3 up and it hit 85? Is this normal for a turion RM-75 on it's first day or should I send it back to HP for excess heat?
It doesn't fill me with confidence after my last experience with AMD. The intel DV6799ea with a t8100 is cooler under load than this new baby is when it's idling!
Is it just the way AMD is, or something wrong with my laptop?
Anyways I have the IDT Control Panel installed with all the drivers up to date but with the volume turned all the way up I can barely hear anything from the laptop speakers, if I plug in headphones they work fine but the speakers barely put out sound.
Model: HP DV6Z CTO OS: Windows 7 Pro 64 bit (updated drivers from hp's site).
I tried the suggestion regarding installing realtek driver's but my laptop bsod'd and I haven't tried anything since (couldn't think of anything).
The green volume bar barely goes up when I do stuff such as watch video's online (doesen't even reach 1/4th of the way up) while the volume is turned all the way up.
I'm looking at buying one of these laptops from HP's website. I have a question about them though. The dv5tse has an Intel processor and an Intel 4500 integrated graphics card whereas the dv6z has AMD processor and ATI Radeon integrated graphics card or ATI 512MB and 1GB dedicated graphics card. Which one of these combinations is better: Intel, Intel or AMD, ATI? There will be no gaming on this computer. It will be strictly Blu-Ray movies, school work, web, music etc.
But I have no clue if the insides are as good as it looks outside.
Below is the configuration i wanted to chose. The laptop should be able to handle some serious software like CAD, photoshop and ArcGIS. Gaming a plus but not a priority. Playing movies would be a plus too.

I want to transfer some old DV tapes to DVDs through an old JVC mini-DV camcorder with a DV/4-pin firewire connection but I do not know how many pins the firewire port on my laptop is. I was under the impression that all notebooks used a 4-pin connection, and it looks like it is 4 pins, but the connector pin assignments section of the user manual lists it as 6 pins.
After a night away from town, leaving my laptop on as I usually do, came back to find a black screen with computer still running. I suspect Windows Update ran and had trouble with something. Powered off, turned back on, and the startup hung as the OS was loading.
Safe mode said the hang was at crcdisk.sys (I searched for this on the internet, but was not able to do much with it, as will soon be seen). I got my Vista installation CD and tried to boot from it, but it would not -- not even if I removed the hard drive from the computer. A friend had a similar laptop, and we exchanged hard drives; his would not boot in mine, but mine would in his (all data intact). I tried reseating the RAM;
no good. Another friend lent me a Ubuntu boot cd, which also did not complete loading. Long story short, I can't get anywhere where I can do anything meaningfully useful. I can't get to a command line to run chkdsk, or to the internet to flash my BIOS, or to a text editor to write papers for school. The people I've talked with say probably the motherboard is bad.
I was able to get to an unhelpful IT fellow for a few minutes, and he was able to boot Windows 98 from CD, but he didn't let me do anything, or have the CD. I'm going to try to find one and see what I can do from it .....
i have a dv4-1155se, and the hd get hot, yesterday i dont do nothing expecial, only open an msn or a firefox, and about 3 hours latter the hd had a temperature about 55°C, i think, its not normal, please i need information about users who has hp dv4, dv5, or dv7 series, please, if the users can put theirs values about Hd temperatures i apresiate to much, my hd notebook its a toshiba
I've been wondering if anyone with the GPU HD 4650 could post your temperatures. I'm looking into a 2177, with P7550 and HD4650. But searching about the temperatures, I've encountered some people with problems (on older models...)
reporting your temperatures?
Also, does the keyboard, or the place where your wrist "sits" gets hot?
I'm really worried about the temperatures because my actual notebook (which has the same HD4650, but a little bit underclocked) has temperature issues. I can't even run Crysis on full settings that it will just go all black and I have to force the shutdown.
I've been trying to help my roommate out on this one and I think that the issue is hard drive is corrupt, but I'm not sure. A few days ago, he told me that Vista has been taking ages to start up.
I tried looking at to see what was going on and we couldn't even get passed the welcome screen. At this time, there were no errors showing up before the Welcome screen loaded. I got the Dell Vista reinstall disc and attempted to repair the files. Doing that didn't do anything. Therefore, I figured that his only option was to reformat.
I followed that guide that's stickied which shows you how to install the mediadirect and vista to each of there own partitions. After doing deleting the partitions and installing mediadirect to its own partition, I proceeded to installing Windows Vista.
Vista then finished installing and restarted automatically as it normally does. After restarting and going passed the first black screen (here you can hit F12 to get to bios), I get an error that reads .....
The computer is about 5 months old. I am using it over a notebook cooler like this one [url], and about 2 inches above the table.Are these normal temperatures, especially regaring to the GPU? Up to now, I haven't experienced any freezzing, lagging, shutdown, blue screens or lines in screen yet, but it get's excessively hot, more on its right upper side.
i have a hp dv5t with a 2 ghz intel T5800 and a Nvidia 9600 512 mb gpu. I was just wondering what good temperatures for this computer are, because im trying to be really cautious with this computer since my last one broke. Also is there anything I can do to reduce temperatures other than cooler? I have one but doesn't seem to do much. and by good temps i mean temps that might necessarily make the computer fry but i dont want to put undue stress on it either.
i purchased one compaq cq45-137tx in december. I guess it' similar to the dv4t models marketed in other countries.
there are couple of temperature issues with this lappy ( ambient temp 25-30C):
1. at idle ( just media player or maybe a pdf file open), the cpu temp is at 43C, northbridge always above 50, gpu always above 55.hd also tends to operate at 45-48C. this is inspite of the fact that i am running this thing with no vents blocked ..and in fact the RAM, cmos battery and hd covers removed to allow better air circulation.
2. at normal load ( game like burnout paradise, with utor going on in background), cpu tends to reach 60 C, gpu at 80 C , northbridge at 70C and hd at 60 C.
3. cpu temp never seem to change really. tried using various s/w' like realtemp ( shows 28 C for gpu..which i dont think is feasible). only when i reboot after a high load session, the s/w' show higher temperatures ( and the notebook shows erratic behavior with display artifacts!).
4. the only fan in the machine never appears to speed up or down. i don't have an issue with the noise, as long as it helps this thing run cooler.......
My HP dv5t is about 10 months old, with a P8600 and Geforce 9600 GT. After just an hour of playing Company of Heroes, my max temperatures for the CPU is 95C and GPU is 110C. I didn't lift the back since I can't right now, but even when I do have it lifted, I think only the GPU goes down to about 99C or so while the CPU is still around 95C max. The CPU idles at 58-60C and GPU about 68-70C.
Anyway, I tried blowing some compressed air in it and it looks good a few weeks ago, but I'm still getting these temperatures. I'm really concerned since I haven't found any posts where others have this degree of overheating, maybe it's just me? I'm not playing on my lap or bed so it's not that. I don't really experience any glitches or crashes yet, but it seems like others have problems at temperatures that aren't as high, so it's probably only a matter of time. I run stock drivers and bios and haven't done anything drastic to it. When I first got this, the temps maxed out at around 80 for CPU and 95 for GPU. But yeah, anyone else having this bad of a problem and what can I do right now?
Here's an image, I wish I had those min temps as idle but those were when the computer just turned on:
One day my computer was real slow so i decided to factory restore my notebook, so i did. But ever since after that, i no longer can use my wifi for internet access. The only way i can connect to internet now is by ethernet cable. I called HP Support and they said i was missing a driver , since im sure i can just download what i need online for free on the HP site. Â So,Â The bottom right icon shows a computer with a X on it. My F12 key is on with a blue light lid up. Â When i go to HP Connection Manager it says Wi-Fi (Wireless LAN) Disabled by Device Manager. When i go into Device Manager > Network Adapters, all the drivers i see are these three
"Bluetooth Device (Personal Area Network)" "Bluetooth Device (RFCOMM Protocol TDI" "Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller #2"
This is all i see. Am i missing any other drivers? Â Information on my notebook: Product Name: HP Pavilion dv6z-6100 CTO Quad Edition Entertainment Notebook Product Number: LK183AV OS Name: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium System Type: x64
i usually leave my laptop on my desk, which is about 6 in. away from the window. lately, gpu temp has hit a low of 32 c, core temps of 16 c. i need to know if this is a dangerously low temperature to operate the computer. if i should move the desk or laptop or what.
I've owned my M1330 for a few months now, and have been very happy with it. But today, all of the sudden, things changed. I understand that a fan speeds up when a laptop gets hot, but this is not the case here.
All of the sudden today, this started happening: The fan is always on (around 3000rpm). However, the temperatures are usually low (CPU:38-50 , GPU:47-49). The laptop doesn't even get hot.
I've already cleaned the dust out of the the fans/vents, just in case.
I recently purchased a M170 with 6800 Ultra off ebay and have been using it for the past week or so. During this time, I have noticed that the temps get quite high when running graphic intensive applications. I currently have an e1705 with a 7900GTX installed so I am familiar with the heat dissipated from a high end graphics card but the M170 seems to get very hot in comparison to my e1705. I am not sure what are considered high temps so I will just post my readings from I8kfan (these are the peak temps):
I got these temperatures by running orthos to stress the cpu, and furmark to stress the gpu at the same time. Are these temperatures normal for an Acer Aspire 5920g? Cause I find these temperatures rather high, and I'm wondering if these are safe. I already have applied some artic silver 5 thermal compound to the both the gpu and the cpu.
My friends model Sony Vaio FZ (VGN-FZ17G) which is the exact same model as mine currently ran into a hardware problem with the GPU (NVIDIA 8400M GT) which is causing his computer to crash and has since turned the GPU off and is running on board graphics. Apparently its going to cost him about 1k (AUD) as its out of warranty to fix as they need to also replace the Motherboard.
He does play quite a few games on it unlike me which I use this computer mainly for design work.
This got me thinking since I've always told him my notebook always runs reasonably hot and thus the fan goes up and down loudly which he never really experienced nor ever complained about haha.
I've just installed the speedfan application
I've had this computer up running the entire day doing basic work like internet browsing/photo viewing and Photoshop usage. Currently its idling at
GPU 75C CORE1 70 CORE2 70
are these temperatures normal on the vaio FZ notebook models? what are yours?
these will only go higher when playing a video game such as Left 4 Dead or video rendering with Premiere Pro if these are just basic work temps and that's a bit worrying for me.
