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?
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?
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.
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.
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!
I bougth my HP DV5 1022 three days ago, everything worked perfect, but when the computer is not being used and it turns off the screen to "hibernate" or "sleep", when i move the mouse to wake it up appears the welcome screen but immediately the screen turns black and does not answer. The computer is on and the screen is black, not turned off, black.
I tried moving mouse, pushing all butons, closing the laptop, and the screen is dead yet.
Why? is perhaps an operative system bad installation? (vista) or the model HP DV5 1022 is simply..... garbage?
I'm very worried because i can't download movies and archives when i'm sleeping, because when i wake up to see the progress, the pc screen dead.
I have a HP pavillion dv9610us Notebook which i never really have had issues with until now. As of this past week, when I close my lid and the notebook goes to sleep it is getting so friggin hot now when I come back to use it when before it never did.
Has anyone have problem with sleep mode under vista hp? My Compaq is able to sleep first time while I am away for extended period but it will not sleep again when i am away again it stay awake forever.
I am getting a new hp laptop dv7t and in the past I have pretty much always kept my laptop in sleep mode when it was not in use. If I was going to not use it for a couple of days then I would turn it off. It is always plugged in since it is pretty much a desktop laptop.
What is the best practice for a always plugged in laptop?
Here are my problems as most of you are already familar with....
Mouse freezes when system is woken up from sleep mode.
Speaker crackles and I am unable to update driver. Tried several times.
How do i make sure all my drivers are up to date? Do i have to check each one manually?
Here are the steps I have taken to try and fix these problems....
20 hours on the phone with hp tech support. (i speak fluent indian now) tried to download speaker driver - unable tried to install updated mouse driver - unable installed updated Bios - caused the dm3 to go into blue screen 3 times re-installed windows 7 - problems still exsist...............
I recently bought a 500GB/7200 RPM hard drive to my laptop and I decided to install Windows RC 64 bit. Before doing the hard drive update, I had installed the 7 RC 32 bit since it came out.
Now, I can't recall when I had the 7 RC 32bit that the laptop's fan was running on full blast after sleep/stand-by. It is also loud when you start-up the computer from a restart or after a shut-down. The fan speeds down to a quiet speed/rpm after...I'd say 2-3 minutes.
I installed everything listed on HP's website for my laptop (drivers and such after installing 7 RC 64bit): [url]
I noticed that the Nvidia driver on HP's website was not a recent one, so I hopped on Nvidia's website to get a newer driver instead (186.03 I believe).
I have my laptop set to Power saving's mode and I only bump it to Balanced when I'm doing something heavy (like iTunes encoding, etc).
I did check to see if maybe my anti-virus program that's installed (avast...AVG didn't install when I went to 64) was doing scans or such, but it isn't. Well, actually I take that back...does avast do a very slow/quiet scan in the background? I see the HDD status light blinks steady, but when I pause avast, there is not steady blinking.
I've had my M1530 for almost 11 months now and I noticed this discoloration on the palm rest but more importantly are the temps. The CPU is hitting 97 degrees Celsius and the GPU is hitting at 94 degrees Celsius. I first noticed this after several hours of video conversions then I ran ORTHOS to replicate the results. Should I ask for a technician to replace the mainboard or heatsinK? I've tried to raise the issue with the GPU running at this temp before but to no avail. However, this is the first time the CPU has hit such high temps.
I've got a Precision M4400 for which I did some DIY upgrading... Specifically, I put in a T9900 (3.06GHz, 35W TDP) processor and a 256Gb SSD. You can see the specs in my signature, actually.
The problem is that my temperatures seem to be going pretty high. Realtemp is saying that once I turn on the laptop, both CPU cores are at around 30-35 C. But after a very short while, this heats up to the mid-40's. And if I play Sims 3, let's say, the temperature can go up all the way to the high 70's. The GPU seems to stay at under 80 C, which I think should be fine .....
just installed fx2500 into my 9400.. everything working great..
What should I expext the temps to be running at ... Seems hot... I could keep my 7900gs under 60c by keeping my 18kgui program runnin fans on high while playing Cod4 or CS:s... now the gpu peaks out at 70-72c...
i was wondering what the temps you guys are getting on your 8700 sli setups running games like crysis and such. i'm running crysis for example at 1280x800 or something, cant remember off hand, everything set to medium. game for about and hour and a half and my temps only showed to reach around 62C. now this is using i8kfangui and offsetting the gpu temp by 8. i'm not using the program to handle the cooling, just monitor the temps. i guess i was just expecting the temps to be higher, not that its bad, i guess maybe the cooling and bios on this laptop just work better than on a 1705. seems that i hit 70C almost daily on that thing depending on the game i was running.
Should i contact dell ? I bought this laptop on july 2008 without any extra warranties and i think that i have 1 year only of warranty that comes for free right?. The downside is that im in south america so it might take a while...
