HP/Compaq :: Temperature Monitoring For DV6 ATI 4650 GPU
Sep 3, 2009
just got a DV6 with 4650 GPU. Usually I use HW monitor and the like but I notice HW monitor does not pick up the temp for the GPU. I have tried using the AMD tool and Speed fan, neither see the GPU, GPUz sees the GPU and gives me temperature information which as far as I can see is wrong (says that the GPU is only 42 degrees under full load and never changes from between 37-42 degrees). So does any one out there have a temperature monitoring utility that will WORK with an ATI 4650 and give some representation of what its temp is?
I have a Dell XPS M1330 PC and am currently using a trial version of Everest Ultimate to monitor primarily its temperature, but I also use it occasionally to check its components.
The trial version ends in 8 days and I am looking for another software monitoring program, preferably freeware, to replace it, but I am also willing to pay reasonably for quality monitoring software.
Reviewing the posts on the Notebook Forums, HWMonitor seems to be widely recommended and used. Would you agree or do you have other recommendations for accurate temperature monitoring software? Is there any freeware that can monitor the various functions of the M1330 PC like Everest does?
I also had a question about the Everest Ultimate monitoring program (made by Lavalys). I found the following on the Lavalys website:
i hv just bought a new laptop of HP. it has everythng but i need to monitor the wireless signal strength cause we have placed so many aps but the ssid is same..so for connecting to a perticuler ap i will be needing a tool which can show me the % of wireless signal strength and the ssid..
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.
how I could get the latest ATI Mobility Radeon 4650 drivers? I tried the official HP site, however whenever I clicked the download link it doesn't connect (nothing happens and then it times out). Any direct links? I have Windows 7 64bit Home Premium.
I have an HP dv6-1154TX notebook which has a mobility radeon 4650 graphics card. I read in a thread in this forum that you can overclock the GPU in the new version 9 catalyst drivers. When I go to the AMD site, there is no HD4650 under mobility radeon driver list.
Actually there are no HD series cards at all, only the older x1900, etc.. So do the HD series mobility radeons use the normal radeon drivers?
I just took the wraps off my new DV6t. I live in Japan so I had to wait two weeks while my parents spent $150 dollars to ship it to me, but it finally got here and...
There's artifacting everywhere. Little pink boxes appear even when I'm mousing over things in the file explorer, and when I opened up the catalyst control center (and it shows the two 3D scenes for comparison) there was artifacting like crazy!
I tried uninstalling the drivers, but the pink boxes still continue to spawn in random places on the screen. Then I went to ATI's website but apparently they don't hand out drivers for the mobility 4650... so I had to go to HP's website and get the same stuff I had before. Nothing solved...
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.
i bought HP Pavilion dv6-1390ev laptop with Graghic ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 1024 MB it comes with windows 7 home prem but i need a driver for windows xp pro i didnt find that driver from ATI web site even on the net and all other drivers for it to windows xp
The temperature of the processor goes up over 80'c when I do intensive things, like MP3 encoding or Half Life 2.
The CPU in my TX2 is a Turion X2 RM-72. So what I am wondering, is what is the thermal design of this processor? The processor in my Asus (Core 2 Duo) only hits about 60'C when under extreme load. Main thing I am asking is, is it safe to run the processor under such load? I mean the Turion X2.
It makes me very nervous to see such high temperatures, even when at idle its 47'C.
One thing that just came to mind, is the possibility of the location of the thermistor. I suppose if its located closer to the core it could read much higher, faster. Only thing I'm thinking about, is eventually the temperature should read higher anyway if that is the case. Over time the cooling system would gradually become warmer.
Anyway, all I'm wondering is is it safe? Idle temperature seems pretty normal to me, 47'c, but 80'c is quite high for load temperature.
my laptop, hp pavillion g60-120us has been slowing down and crashing lately, so i ran hd tune to check it's temperature and found out it's running at around 62c with several programs running - firefox with multiple tabs, majic jack, hd tune, and the usual security-antiivirus and spyware.
when i first turn the laptop on, it starts at around 40c and quickly goes up to the 60's within 20-30 minutes.
when i run a scan of antivirus or ultimate defrag it tops out at around 70c.
the hd tuner hits critical hard disk temperature at 55c and pop ups a message every few seconds.
i've also run speedfan, and it tells me the same temperature.
is it normal for a laptop to run a temperature in the high 60's...should i put it on a block of dry ice, or move to the north pole?
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?

Just got me an Aspire 5536G (2.2 ghz Turion, ATI 4570) and it is running hot! After a few minutes of Prime95 the CPU gets up in the 90s (Celcius), and 15-20 minutes of gaming gets it there too.
Is there a tool that lets me undervolt and lower clocks? The BIOS is very anemic, so I cant set things there.
I am also looking for a good fan speed and temp monitoring program. I have tried a few but only CPUID HWMonitor reports temps for both cores and two more sensors (presumably located near the GPU). SpeedFan only reports one temperatur.
I have seen my notebook (p/n GY394AV) reach 199F internal with the CPU's operating at 192F. This generally happens when I'm doing large-scale printing and dealing with large RAW images. But at idle times or when doing basic tasks such as Email and playing music It will run anywhere between 160-185F(Both CPU and internal). Is this normal? I am using Speed Fan and HWMonitor to get these numbers. I don't have any other programs running in the background.

Is it me or does the left side of the wrist rest get hot? the remote in the slot also gets really hot. The average temp seems to be 38-46 C. Its like 81 when playing a game or so. Even though these numbers seem normal, does anyone feel its hotter than its supposed to be. I used HWMONITOR to see the temps. Im just worried if this heat can ruin the express slot remote. and does anyone else feel the warmth from the left side?
Also, is anyone's spacebar not that responsive when hitting it towards the farthest left or right? Its really annoying when you hit it but theres no space. Other laptops are perfectly normal but the hdx16 spacebar seems loose.
Lastly, everytime i turn off the dolby sound space expander, my fingerprint reader sounds like its buzzing when it accepts a fingerprint. Some songs crackle when it's turned on as well. Try it out, it will probably happen to you. Already tried reinstalling the audio drivers and problems still occurs.
I have purchased a mobility hd 4650 from an Acer spare parts source and intend to replace my 8600m GT with it.
The order has been shipped and will hopefully arrive within 2 weeks.
Based on this thread (5920G Upgraded To...Radeon HD 4650?!) I should be able to simply install the card physically (I've disassembled this laptop for a processor upgrade before) and then just throw on the drivers (the device comes with the Acer vBIOS preloaded)..................................
