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
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.
Trying to get rid of these questionably useful programs -- but I don't see entries for them in add/remove programs in the control panel (or for any of the other useless VAIO software packages that come on OEM machines sans "fresh start")
I have just been given a VAIO PCG8A2M (GRX316MP) , i was told "it's broken but if you can fix it yo can have it" so having a quick look at it there's no sign of life on the display but the lights come on and i can here the HDD heads moving about.
Looking a little more i found that all the ram is missing , so now im not sure if its worth buying some ram to see if it works or not ? The lack of ram would prob explain the lack of display but i wonder if i should be getting POST beeps at least, which im not.
So my question is if a VAIO had no ram should (if all else was working) it be getting POST beeps ?
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.
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 don't know whats the diference (besides the price), between VAIO TZ295N & VAIO TZ395N. Specs in all the websites I've checked say they have exactly the same components: Intel coreduo 1.33Ghz 2GB RAM DVD-RW and 64GB SSD Hardrive. I was wonder if the diference might be in the hard drive interface, with the TZ295N being PATA and TZ395N being SATA.
I'm wondering if the Blu-ray optical drive (Panasonic UJ-232A) of the (old) VAIO Z series will be able to fit into the (new) VAIO Z series? I would really appreciate it if anyone is able to answer my question.
The reason I'm asking is because I'm seriously thinking of selling my VAIO Z690 & just buying the base Sony VAIO Z (VPCZ112GX/S). I may just be able to afford that base model & the icing on the cake will definitely be the UJ-232A drive being able to fit into the (new) VAIO Z series & work.
i'd like to know what kind of temps to expect from a normally working card.
What are your temps on idle (normal room temp 20c-30c) and what are the max temp it reaches when say we run the ati tool graphical view. (Just for reference - when idle, ATI Tool reports 65c on my card, and after running the 3d view of ati tool the card will reach 104c).
I'd like everyone who has that info to post it here and i'll do the math and calculate the avarage working temp of that card.
Since different monitoring progs report different tempratures please state which program is reporting the temps.
Well people in my country is summer, and from some days (4-5 days) my Studio 1535 has annoying for me HDD and GPU temperatures.
I will attach old picture and current picture and you can compare the temperatures. Plus the fan stays on higher speed and it just don't want to turn itself back to normal light speed mode, I guess because high HDD and GPU temperatures.
my laptop's temperatures are reaching too high while playing games. i was playing burnout paradise and simultaneously hw monitor was also running. the max temp of both cores reached 89c and of gpu 91c and acpi was 94c. are these temperatures normal of are they too high??plz suggest me what to do...i have also attached the photo of the temperatures recorded....
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?
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.
