How warm should the Idepad 700 be?

Q: How warm should the Idepad 700 be?

Hi, this is just the second day with my new Ideapad 700, and I have just noticed that the right part of it (from the bottom right corner up to the top right corner, probably by the 20% of the width) is the noticeably warm. The left is entirely cold. The laptop is not loaded at all, the CPU graphs are below 5% and the laptop itself is not doing any heavy lifting job. How normal is it?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Hi,Have been using Ideapad Z410 from past 6 months.  From past week the Laptop shuts down without warning, and the battery level is at 99% or 100%.  Only when the unit shutsdown, and when I start up again, that the battery indicator starts from 0 and goes to 99% or 100% and stays there.  I have also doen the Battery Meter Reset, but of no benefit.What is the problem, and what should I do.Should I claim under warranty ?

A:Idepad Z410 battery always at 99% or 100%

I wouldn't expect much of an answer from them, the same happens to the Z510 I have and it happens to the Z500 models before it, they'll tell you to send it in under warranty but that will not solve the problem as it will happen again after a few months and I need the laptop for work, I didn't buy it so that after half a year I would have to send it away for 2-3 weeks, I bought the thing because it is needed here. They need a battery firmware update but that too is too hard for them to do. These problems are being experienced by people worldwide and I am seriously considering reporting them to watchdog here in the UK. They should not be shipping laptops that have known issues and then offer no fix.

I have recently bought Lenovo idepad 110. Im usually using it while plugged-in so Ive decieded to turn on battery conservation in Lenovo settings app.Recently I had to use it on battery because my plug was too far away from it so Ive turned off the battery conservation option so I could charge the battery fully BUT it still only charged up to 60%.Ive even reinstalled lenovo settings app but it still wont charge past 60%.When I first bought it and didnt know there was a battery conservation option it charged normally up to 100% so I guess its some kind of software malfunction.Anyone had any similar experience or knows how to resolve this?

I  bought this laptop lenovo idepad 510-15ISK from a shop in Greece. I added an SSD and upgraded the RAM the same day following sellers advice that the upgrade won't harm the warranty. The same day I detected that laptop were electrocuting me and the next day I returned the product to the seller for replacement. They verified the electric drain and the technician recovered the original HHD and removed the extra ram that I added so as to give it to the official technical support. I have been told that only if the technical support  say that this is a problem they will either replace the laptop or return my money back.It seems though that the technical support changed the motherboard of the laptop (approved that SSD and RAM upgrade didn't harm the laptop) and they don't approve the replacement or my money back. This laptop is no longer a new laptop but a refurbished one!!!!! I have already gone to local authorities for local seller, lenovo and official technical support for trying to cheat me and I am already contacting with local media to raise the issue in the Greek market about the tactics of lenovo. Can you please suggest me any other ways before this goes public not only in Greece but also in more European Countries?

Hello MArleoThanks for using the Lenovo forums.
 
Try a static discharge for this, it may help to resolve the issue or at least get rid of any built up static on the motherboard.(If the battery is internal, please just skip the remove/replace battery steps.)1. Turn the unit off2. Remove the battery and the Mains adapter3. Press and hold the front power button for 30 seconds4. Replace the battery and the Mains adapter5. Turn the unit on as normal
 
If it doesn`t work, open it up again, make sure that there is no loose connections, it may be that one of the cables came loose when you put it back together again.

How warm should the 8800GTS 640mb be? I just installed it, and at idle it's at 61c, but my 6600GT was 56c when idle. Is this normal?

I have two 120mm fans, one in the back and one in the front. I can only feel a slight breeze coming from the video card's heatsink on the back of the case.

How many PCIE cords should I have plugged in? The instructions had a picture with two, but the instructions are probably sent with all the 8xxx series cards. Besides, I could only find one on the video card.
 

A:Is this too warm?

For that card considering ambient temps, it is normal. Those 8800's run hot compared to previous generation Nvidia cards.

Your PCIE cords are fine. That card only need power from one. The Nvidia Forceware software would adjust anyway if it didn’t receive enough power from the power supply.

Whenever i am away from my computer for a while like an hour or two, and come back it seems to take a while to "warm up". the first thing i do is start playing music (media monkey), then usually start opera. First it takes a while before any noise, then the music jumpy for a few seconds, then it's good. and it takes longer to open opera, than if i were to close it then open it back up. It's not a problem, it just seems weird. I have process explorer, and no graphs spike until opera actually opens. Is it just taking a while to turn off background processes like system idle process?

A:Warm Up?

This will depend on your power saving options that are set in your system's BIOS and within Windows. Once components have been powered down/set to "inactive" - it'll take some time to re-initialize them in order to get them back up and running properly.

Has this always happened, or is it just recently that it's started? There's other things that can cause this (such as a misbehaving program that doesn't work well with the power saving stuff), so it'll take some troubleshooting to isolate it.

Hi guys.

I have a Pentium 4 running at 3 GHz. The case has the factory CPU fan on it, as well as two additional cooling fans. I was living in a small apartment with no A/C a few weeks ago, and it was always UNGODLY hot in there. I've since moved, and the room the computer is kept in is likewise always REALLY hot. The new place has central A/C. There are 3 dogs and 4 cats living in here -- I can't keep the door open to the room (I'm allergic, they knock things over, etc.)

WHAT can I do to cool down? It's, on average, 10 degrees warmer in here than outside! Okay, yea, I know I can turn it off, and I've started doing that at night, but ... the problem reins during the day, and especially in the evening. I work on my computer constantly.

When I leave my computer I lock my account (win+L), and sometimes go to bed without turning it off. I have noticed on a few occasions now that when I arrive back at my pc, the CPU fan's are whirring louder than normal. The temps had been at 60c, when normally they are at 40c. After signing in, I check task manager, and there's nothing there that using the CPU, and after a few minutes the temps drop and life is good again.

What could this be? Does anyone had any good ideas to track whatever it is down? I doubt it's malware because I'm 'web-wise', but I'll run a scan anyway. I feel that Windows is doing something and hiding it from me.

A:CPU Getting Warm

There are lots of scheduled tasks that run in the background and start when the PC is detected to be idle. Once activity resumes on the PC these background tasks often pause and wait for the next idle period. Some examples include indexing, disk defragmentation, disk clean up, etc.

Open Task Scheduler and look down the list of scheduled Microsoft Windows tasks, you will see there are hundreds of them and most of the time you will not even notice them.

Another thing to do is go through the following tutorial and see if there are some tips that you can use to optimize your PC. Look at item 23 for the automatic maintenance settings.

My laptop sits on a pad with two fans cranking away to assist in the cooling.

I added a 3D wallpaper with motion. I thought that I would check the temp. since the fan is cranking away in the computer. Using "Real Temp GT" show four reading (Quad Core) at 171F.

Is this damaging to run these temperatures very long on a laptop. The surface temp feels a little towards very warm rather than just warm. It doesn't feel hot.

I do have two additional fans working on a pad, but. . .?

Thanks for your time.

A:Very warm, or hot laptop

That's 77 degrees C.

High, but within specifications.

I don't use laptops, but they are known to run hot compared to PCs---that's why you bought the fan gizmo.

I wouldn't worry a lot about it. It may die in 30 seconds whether cool or hot. It may die in 15 years if hot or 25 years if cool. It's a tool that you are using within specs, so use it.

Hi,
I remember a functionality in Vista/XP where you could hold the SHIFT button for a warm reboot which effectively avoided having to go through BIOS POST.
I have tried this in Windows 7 however no luck.
Has this been removed? if so that suck cause i have a RAID controller which takes a long time to go through all of its tests/init.

Anyone?

A:Warm Reboot??

Are you sure the RAID test is part of POST? your computer must go through POST when it turns on. Windows 7 wouldn't have an effect on this, as it is initiated after the BIOS does its thing.
Have a look through your BIOS settings and see if anything has changed, look for 'quick POST' or something to do with RAID.
If the tests aren't part of POST, and are part of windows init, then I am not sure how to help.

My sister has a HP Pavilion dv6 with an Intel Core i5-540 processor. According to RealTemp, the CPU idles at about 60 degrees and her computer always feels warm.

She is an Architecture Major and uses programs like Adobe Indesign, and Autodesk Revit which make the temps go up to like 80-90 degrees.

Is this normal or is this too hot?
 

A:CPU running warm

that is a little "warm" to put it lightly. When was the last time you or your sister tried cleaning the dust out of the heatsink assemblies? Turning off the computer and blowing the vents and fan exhaust port with compressed air could help a LOT depending on the build up.

I suggest doing this outside by the way, just in case it is really bad, and I personally remove the keyboard if I can to get in there better, but by all means this is not required.

Ok, so I have 2 PSUs in my house:

400W Fortron (FSP Group) - emachines rig: 512megs of ram, 6100 IGP, 1 HD, 3000+ sempron

When I feel the air coming out of the fortron, it's cool. Literally. When I feel the air coming out of my antec, it's warm. Not "hot", but warm. Now that I feel it again, it's not "hot" at all, but it IS indeed warm.

Am I to be worried? Or is this normal? I'm just worried because my fortron is all nice and cool, and this baby that's powering my rig is warm...

Also: do you think it's safe to keep running with this one if I were to get a 8800GTS (320MB)? It says it needs a minimum of 400W, which my unit has, and 26A on the +12V rail, which I have as well... my systems isn't really all that loaded:

A:CPU according to conditions used to warm?

Hi

The CPU temperature depends on the notebook usage.
If you run some applications which would load the CPU a lot, then the CPU temperature could increase to a higher level.

To decrease the heat dissipation, it could be advisable to decrease the max CPU performance (< 90%).
This can be done in the Windows Advanced Power options.

I don’t know if it would be the option for you but it seems that the change of thermal grease (for example: arctic mx4) could also help to improve the cooling performance.

I was wondering what component is this area and if I could just disconnect it. I wouldn't mind losing USB capability or the headphone socket (both of which are located here externally).
Is opening the main part of the case as simple as removing all the screws?

Thank you

Hi,

Sounds like the CPU is causing the high temperature since the copper heatsink is on the left side, I dont recommend removing the CPU :p

There may be some dust build up in the vent, you can use Compressed Air to blow the dust out.

I have a P4 3.4ghz 650, on a fatal1ty aa8xe in a coolmaster wave master case. Two front intakes, three rear exhaust and one side. With a themaltake cpu fan. At idle it is about 42C but under full load using burnmax i am getting up to 70C. Is there a way i can just crank my cpu fan on high all the time because when booting it seems to be moving more air, but when it gets to windows it seems to slow down. I have all my low temps in BIOS set to 25c so they are on at all times. It is just frustrating cause i have spent alot on fans and making sure all airflow is good.
 

A:P4 running pretty warm.

XD, your computer fans suck too much air outside rather than inside..., do this..
2 front intakes, 2 rear intakes and one rear exaust just beside CPU, and a side for intakes.

You should download the CPUIdle, that program should bring down your idle temp to 34 and the working for 50 or below.

If not, get new ThermalTake Copper heatsink for your P4!

Responding to a 911 call for help from my folks, I was greeted by an XP Dell P2 300 that refused to start-up. Some files were missing or corrupt and it called for a startup on the CD and hitting R for repair.

Fair enough.... Only it refused to start off a CD despite the bios settings. You could hear it spin-up, but nothing ever happened - as if it didn't even try - and you end up back at the " Corrupt File - Hit R " screen.

Out of frustration I copied over files from C:\windows\system32\config from another PC to the hard drive since it was saying they were corrupt. (I knew that a few of them might not match the Dell config but... what the hey... anything to get a different message! )

VOILA !! ... that got me past that screen and on to the "Windows did not shut down properly" Screen.
! PROGRESS !
- Well.... not much - no matter what mode I choose: Normal.... Safe.... etc, the PC acts as though it is preparing to startup but then does a warm boot and lands back in the "Windows did not shut down properly" screen again. It's like....if it JUST wouldn't interrupt power for that instant... it would move on. But alas.....no joy!
I am in the TwilightZone. Any thoughts as how to move on?

Hi, I have a problem with my yoga 510, when Im playing some games or something. It gets really quickly warm, I mean if I touch the middle of the front keyboard (or numbers keyboard) it feels like hot soup. Is it normal, because if I start the hardware test it's ok? Thanks for answers

Sometimes my machine has a problem that requires a cold boot. Memory is not completely cleared with a warm reboot.

My question is: If I hold down the reset button for a few seconds, will memory be completely cleared? If so, how many seconds should I hold down the reset button?

The reason I ask is that my machine has some SCSI drives that take a minute or two to get up to speed from a cold boot.

Thanks for your answer.
 

A:Warm vs Cold reboot

As long as power is being fed to the memory chips the memory will remain there. You have to do a cold boot (cut off the power) in order to completely clear DRAM.
