t440p heat

Q: t440p heat

Hi,3 months ago I bought a t440p with 4700qm, nvidia gt730m, 8gb ram,...I have windows 7 installed on it and it bothers me a little, that surface of the left side of keyboard and also whole mousepad gets pretty warm. It's not comfortable to type nor to work with mouse. I know, that proc is 47W and also nvidia is there to bring up the heat, but all I'm doing is browsing on the internet and I have the nvidia disabled in Control panel -> devices.Is this normal? I've checked the temperature of the proc, and it's normal (around 52 - 56C), but it's not normal to me, that the surface is so hot.Anyone else also has this problem?

  Hello,

I upgraded my lenovo thinkpad t440p (20AN00CBRI) from Windows 7 professional x64 to windows 10 . Now, after all the updates (provided by microsoft and lenovo) to the laptop I encounter the following problems :

>> the Power Manager aplication from windows 7 it's not present anymore on windows 10. I understand that on Windows 10 this it is not needed anymore but this is a big issue : " The CPU FAN is not working at the same speed like on windows 7 and It is very slow (!??!?!) " because of this the laptop heats very bad and it is very deficult to use specially for typing . :(
>> Another thing, I thing the heat dissipation in the design is poorly done for a laptop meant for business .
>> Also, the heat (left side of the laptop CPU, GPU and SSD ) always present by heating I mean > 50 Celsius degrees even in idle mode with the battery out from the laptop and no aditional software installed but only the default upgraded windows 10 .

Please let me know if this is " known heating issue with lenovo thinkpad t440p product code 20AN00CBRI " with this product. I want to get a replacement but hopefully without the heating problem . And let's not forget this is an expensive product designed for business ussage and it is kind of disappointment that it's not delivering the necessary fiability for a business product !!!

Thank you,
Best regards,

I have a new gateway notebook with an 1.6ghz AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-50 cpu... ive recently checked (10 mins ago) my temps inside this thing and my cpu core temp is running at 160F. an insanely high temp. is there a way to improve cooling in this thing without underclocking (im a overclocker not an underclocker) ive never seen it this hot until now...any help would be great i curently have the computer sitting on a honeywell fan to keep it cool... and im down to 110F yay! but this is no solution
 

A:HEAT HEAT HEAT Gateway heat woes

Yes, that converts to a bit over 71 degrees Centigrade... and is getting to the edge of its range... You will have earlier failure.
That model simply does not have the cooling system you need with three of four fans to move the air out.
If you have dogs or cats, clean the guts of the case with Dust Off every week... to remove the dust and hair.
But there isn't much help for you. Lower priced laptops never make good gaming machines.

Aluminium Heat Sink V Copper Heat Sinks for CUP. If you change from a Aluminium Heat Sink to a copper heat sink for yoru CPU in your tower computer (not the slimeline one) the fat boy model.  How much MORE % better does copper work better than aluminium?? 

A:Aluminium Heat Sink V Copper Heat Sinks for CUP.

A little. Copper has roughly twice the thermal conductivity of aluminum: http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/thermal-conductivity-metals-d_858.html Also use a high silver content thermal compound applied very thin but fully covering the processor core In practice you will see a very small difference in the operating temperature of the computer. Unless you are running hot it is probably not worth the trouble. Aluminum is generally good enough. Airflow is also at least as important as the metal used in the heatsink.

It's been awhile since I installed my last CPU -

I just bought a P4. The instructions for mounting
the heat sink (& fan) do not refer to using any
type of (I can't think of the word) that white
compound I used last time to give good thermal
conductivity from the cpu to the heat sink.

Is that stuff not used any more?

If it is, what do I call it and where would I get some?

Thanks!!
 

A:Use "heat transfer" compound between P4 & heat sink?

If you got a retail version cpu, that comes with the heatsink/fan, it likely has a "thermal pad" built in, so it wouldn't need thermal interface material. So if you got a little square of something on the bottom of the heatsink, that's all you need, but if not, just a bare heatsink, put some thermal material on it. IIRC, my retail p4 had a little square that looked like a piece of aluminum stuck on the heatsink, which is a thermal pad.

Hi,I recently purchased a used T440p, more specifically a model 20AW-S0RK03. Unfortuntatly it arrived damaged and, naive as I was, I accepted a small partial refund and figured it wouldn't be too much on an issue to replace it...However, it seems that this part is rather difficult to obtain and furthermore I now realize that the palmrest for the T440p exists with several different internal designs (number/placement of screw holes etc.).If possible I would much prefer not having to disassemble it twice - once to figure out the part number and once again when the part arrives - so if anyone can inform me what part number I need for my specific model (20AW-S0RK03), then that would be a huge help.Any tips on where to buy (if allowed) will also be greatly appreciated. Note that I'm a student, so both cost and delivery time (I'm in Europe) needs to be considered.Thanks in advance. I really hope that someone can assist me with this tiresome situation.Rasmus

Before I buy and install an M.2 card, I wanted to ask just what do I need to know or do before and after the installation. The installation itself is basically simple but I'm not real sure how to set it up or what it can be used for? Do I really need it? I've read several articles about this and found more confusion. Some claim to use it as a boot drive for storing Windows, while others claim it is only good for existing drive cache. I'm wondering if adding the M.2 will even be of any use or improvement to me. Does anyone know anything about this? Please keep it like me, very simple. I'm not even sure which one to get for my T440p. I found this.. will it work fine? Lenovo SK hynix 128GB M.2 2242 PCIe NVMe SSD w/ 2280 Bracket, HFM128GDHTNGI won''t use the included 2280 bracket as it's not for my machine. Some of those terms are kinda foreign to me.

T440p keeps shutting off. Particularly when I start a game. No battery. What I've tried so far:Replace fan/heat sink.Replace i5-4210 with i7-4700mq.Thermal gel properly done.Tried four different brands of RAM.Swapped HDD.Installed MS Office 2013, and .NET framework 4.5 Both run without a hitch. Installed The Sims2, and it kicks off on launch. Same thing with Mass Effect 2. Still kicks off. It will run all day surfing the internet, running office, etc. Any suggestions?

A:T440p shutting off

sounds like overheating.  Can you install something to monitor temperatures, like TPFanControl?
 
Also, it works differently with no battery.  You should get one.
 
Do you have discrete or integrated graphics?  What is the rating of your power supply?

Yes, you can upgrade both. Max RAM is 16GB (2x 8GB), and you could install any CPU from the below list:
 

i5-4210M
i5-4300M
i5-4330M
i7-4600M
i7-4700MQ
i7-4710MQ
i7-4800MQ
i7-4900MQ

I'm only listing few models for the sake of keeping the list short. Basically any Haswell CPU should work.

First of all greetings to all of you on this forum!This is my very first topic in here and, quite frankly, might be one of the only threads I'll ever make, that's because I'm on an impasse where I need some advice before doing anything that might mess things up. Anyway! Back to the situation at hand. While working earlier this week I accidently spilled coffee all over my computer (thanks body for having a sudden urge to sneeze just when I was taking a sip of it). Presently I shut my computer down, removed the keyboard and dried everything that I could below the keyboard/"fluid-shield" and squeezed some paper towel below it keys as well. After all that I hooked everything back together and turned the computer on to check for failures and unfortunately one little key wasn't working: my dear little left key. Luckly it wasn't a letter key and I could carry on with my work for up until I had some time to try to resurrect it (which is today). I have to mention that my warrant expired an year ago and I do have some experience working with electronics, so it wouldn't hurt to disassemble the keyboard itself and check for coffee-blockage in the circuitry, which I suspect it is the case because otherwise I'd expect a whole array of keys to go bad all at once. The thing is, after removing the board from the computer I can't remove the plastic back (the one that slides and hides the screws) save for the lateral plastic clamps.

Good afternoon, I am currently having issues with my Lenovo T440p laptop being plugged in to the AC adaptor but the charging icon does not appear and it doesn't charge the battery. I have had this occurring a couple times over the past couple months and usually manipulating the power cord in the charging port of the computer works. The AC adaptor is all connected tightly in the outlet, computer and brick. My computer has now turned off because there is no charge and I am unable to determine if it is charging or not. I also do not have another device that fits the AC adaptor so I cannot determine if the power cord is malfunctioning or if it is the charging port of the computer.

Hi Stormy1777,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that you are facing the issue with Not charging on ThinkPad T440p.
 
Regarding this issue, please shutdown the system and remove the battery from the system, and switch on the system only with power adapter and go to device manager by right clicking the computer and select manage.
 
In device manager go to batteries option and expand it and right click on Microsoft ACPI and click on uninstall, after that shutdown the system and connect battery and switch on the system by connecting both battery and power adapter and check it, this should resolve the issue.

Basically there is nothing you should worry about, a T440p can use both 1.35v and 1.5v RAM if I remember correctly. And 1.5v RAM can also run at 1.35v.
 
If you plan to upgrade your RAM I would remove those modules (they're Kingston's cheap RAM line) and install 2x 4GB or 2x 8GB (the latter is the max RAM supported by this model).

I took the battery out of my thinkpad t440p the other day and I noticed a sim card slot. I though it would be useful to install a sim card so that I don't have to use my phone's hotspot all the time, but I'm not sure how. Do I need a special sim card for it to work in a laptop? Do I need special software or anything?
