Preferred Solution: IdeaPad 100 Keeps Overheating

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.

My lenovo Ideapad Y400 has been overheating and shutting down during gaming. The first time this happened when I turned it back on Windows had to do an update (windows 10) I'm pretty sure this was just a coincidence though. This only happens when I'm gaming though and I can usually get it to last longer if I turn the settings to low. I replaced the thermal paste and it actually solved the problem for about 2 weeks without a shutdown and everything worked fine. Before it was shutting off 2-20 minutes into gaming. Just recently it started shutting off again so I decided to make this post.  Here's what I know:My temps run mostly around 40c when idle and 60c when gaming. Most of the time the computer doesn't even feel warm when if happens.My fan speed never really speeds up before it shuts off (or ever actually) even when the computer feels hot the fan sticks to its regular speed. Some people have suggested replacing the thermal pad on the VRAM. Not sure if a thermal pad is the same thing as thermal paste but I'm pretty sure the VRAM wasn't one of the tings I replaced the paste on.I replaced the thermal paste on everything that came with thermal paste (I forget exactly which parts these were but I could find out if it's relevant).There is no way to increase the fan speed on Lenovo's Ideapad models (short of hitting the dust removal feature every 5 seconds). And It wouldn't matter because people who have physically modded their fans and added new ones say it ma... Read more

So I bought  Lenovo Ideapad 700-15isk with GTX 950M 2GB DDR3 a couple weeks ago and whenever I try to play a game (any game, even from year 2009), my GPU starts overheating and when it reaches ~83C, it automatically downclocks itself to 405mhz. I tried to install drivers from scratch, both from OM and from Nvidia, and that didn't help me. I've also gone through a clean installation of Win 10, that didn't help either.Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi! My U410 gets really hot so that I can barely touch it. And the fan is not running anymore. I noticed that the fan was working less and less in the last couple of weeks. Additionally, the power led is blinking constantly while the computer is running (Its the same blinking as in standby). This started a few days ago.The fan is running nicely when I activate the vacuum cleaner option in the settings. So it looks like the temperature detection and the control of the fan are not working properly.Is there something I can do about this? Best, vrs01

Hi. Ive recently installed  Linux Mint 18 as part of a dual boot set up on my ideapad y470. The issue i'm having is that the cpu temps are running above 80C when idle on my Linux install. Compared to Windows, i see 50-60C when idle, and around 80C when using chrome. Whats the reason for this overheating? I have tried installing a different kernel as well, but ive concluded that it is not the linux distribution itself, but something hardware related at this point. Any ideas?

Hello, As the title suggests, I have a problem with the mem and gpu clock downclocking to 405MHz without breaking 60C. I've done a bit of reading into it, and I think it may have to do with intel speedstep, though I can't find the option to turn it off in the BIOS. Any help is appreciated!

Okay i am a total noob here. So please keep your replies simple.

I have GeForece 9300M GS on my Acer asppire 4930G Laptop. The GPU is overheating with my idle tempratures at 65 C. When i start a game/HD movie the tempratures rise within minutes and my computer crashes (turns off) .

I got the laptop fans cleaned and got it serviced but the issue is still there. Also the cleaning got my warranty void. I have heard about underclocking and undervolting but dont know crap about them. Also are there any moded drivers that kick start the fan from the beginning as that might help.

Any other help/tips would be greatly appreciated (but please provide links to tutorials and details.)

Hey guys, I have a Lenovo Ideapad IdeaPad 100 14ibd - win10 and basically im planning on formatting my laptop to get rid of all the stuff/unknown files that are terribly slowing down my ram. But im still new to this process so im wondering if using Lenovo's Onekey recovery is a good thing but then i saw the Reset this PC feature of windows is another thing. My question is, what would be the more recommended thing i should do to get my laptop to its original state just like the new windows 10, or are there any difference within those  two?PS: I got my back up files all set from this laptop to my external hd already Thank you!

I got a 2nd hand Lenovo Ideapad 100S. It came with Win10 installed but had someone elses profile and data. 
(I am not sure if it originally had Win8.1 when it was shipped, there is no rollback option anymore)
My preference is to wipe the current installation completely by downloading Win10 and installing a clean copy off USB. 
I also usually prefer to delete all partitions, including recovery because future reinstallations can be done from scratch via USB. (I don't need the option of reinstalling from recovery partitions , the extra space is more important)
I see a warning in the user guide however .....
"Do not delete or modify the Recovery Partition on a WIMBoot-enabled computer. If the Recovery Partition is deleted or modified, you may not be able to restore Windows to the factory status. For computer models on which WIMBoot is enabled, deleting the Recovery Partition may cause Windows to fail to start. How can I determine whether the Windows running on my computer is WIMBoot enabled? WIMBoot technology is normally enabled on copies of Windows 10 Update running on SSD (or eMMC) -only computer models."
What is the best way to do this?

Install a clean copy and remove the partition by booting off a USB, or should I not do this?
Via Settings: settings > Recovery > Reset this PC > Remove everything, or
settings > Recovery > advanced startup > Reinstall from USB

A:Ideapad 100s - Win10 clean installation on ideapad...

 Hi larrens , 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
It's a good thing you posted first before proceeding with any clean installation. 
Not sure what the Machine Number is to verify the details and specifications of your system.
But if you have a pc with a Windows Image Boot (or WIMBoot) you may not want to choose a clean installation. 
This new deployment of installation is compressing part of a big OS file so that you can have an operating system that can only take small spaces intended for small storages (SSD).
Best option to wipe out previous owners profile is a have a fresh out of the box image is using the Puch button Factory reset (Novo key similar to Item 7 page 1). Simply shutdown the system and use the button to turn on, System Recovery option would provide One key recovery from initial backup to do it. 
WIM boot are usually created thru OEM depot authorized by Microsoft . DIY for WIMboot maybe a bit complicated.

Whenever I play a League of Legends game my PC crashes around 8 minutes or so, and when I check the Event Viewer it says Kernel-Power Event ID 41. I measured my temps and I noticed that my GPU was ~100 ?C while playing. I opened my PC and saw that the GPU Fan isn't spinning. I cleaned it from dust but that didn't change anything.

I recently purchased a BFG Geforce 9800 GT off ebay and found that it over heats. Idling with the case open and a desk fan blowing right on the video card (and the heat sink fan running at 100%) the temperature is about 75c. under load it fluxes from 80 (normally up to 90+) with the desk fan. If I remove the desk fan it obviously over heats usually to the point where it shuts off (monitor goes black and computer is still running). Any recommendations on how to keep this thing from over heating?

I have a Biostar board similar to your's. It also says 127C on some of the sensors. I thought that they maight have been corrupt but I guess Speed Fan just has an issue with them.

Hello, I have an overheating problem with my laptop. I use for a half hour and it overheats and shuts down. I have to have it hanging halfway off of a desk in order to use it for long periods of time. My fan is also pretty loud I've noticed. I don't know if its just a messed up laptop (which I can't return because Circuit City decided to close ) or if I could possibly update anything to help it.

Any ideas or advice on how to fix it?

Thanks in advance!


Lol, like I told you about 10 minutes ago, just give HP a call.

That or you could just buy a cooling mat for underneath your laptop.

I've been getting a swiggly shadow line appearing behind things on my screen, like my cursor and the navigation bar on vBulletin boards.

I upgraded my GPU fan to the Arctic Cooling Rev. 2 for the 6800GT and added 3 Cooler Master 80MM fans to my PC. And, I cleaned the other 3 existing case fans & CPU fan/heatsink, but it still happens.

Right now, I'm using a big home fan to cool my PC w/ the side panel off. The swiggly shadows seem to be gone at this point.

My temperatures according to EVERST Home Edition 2.2:

Mobo: 21C
CPU: 20C
GPU: 37C
GPU Ambient: 30C

Without the big fan, my Ambient level would rise by 8 - 9, my CPU goes up to 25, 26, and GPU is at about 40 - 45.

Can someone please help me?
And if any more upgrades are necessary, I'd like to spend as less as possible. With those 4 fan upgrades recently, I've already spent 50 bucks.

Thanks for all the help in advanced.

A:PC Overheating I think

those temps are fine... even without your house fan. so i believe your problem lies elsewhere.... have you updated your graphics card drivers and windows updates?

BTW... for 50 bucks those fans should be cooking you breakfast every morning.. lol

I installed Speedfan and Hardware sensor monitor and they show no fans. Is thewre anyway i can make them run with more rpm's? I dont know what to do i have tried everything. I read posts saying what there far rpm is and what way they are blowing but i have no clue how to tell. The fan blowing out hot air seems to be fluctuating in how hard its working but the intake is barley running.

i've installed a new box-packed Intel P4 2.66 GHz. on an Intel 915 GAV MBrd.

The average processor temperature remains at 55 degree Centigrade!
while installing the heatsink-fan assembly, despite a lot of manouvering i was unable to get the fan screws to 'click' into the MBrd as the instruction booklet'd specified - though the fan appears to be firmly in place and does not move...on recent examination it was also observed that the thermal grease layer had somewhat depleted! what's going on? please help.

A:my new P4 2.66 is overheating!

Get someone who put your cooler in place as it should, or try it yourself, very carefully. The heatsink must have perfect contact on the entire surface of your CPU to accomplish its job.

Take care and good luck!

Hello all,

I have a GTX 470 and when ingame it seems to hit 98c! What temps do you get from your 470 or something similar?


98c is a bit too high. It's only rated at maximum to 105c. GeForce GTX 470

You're getting pretty close to possibly damaging it I would think.
I would raise your fan speed up while in gaming. And/or take it off Auto fan and find a nice manually set fan speed percentage. I myself use EVGA Precision for that. You could also use something like MSI Afterburner as well.

My GTX 480 with the stock fan running 2 monitors would only get about 80c maybe running the fan on auto while gaming. Where as I had the fan at manual 65% or so would probably reach up to about 70-75c in gaming - 2 monitors running though.

I have an aftermarket fan on mine now though, so I have lower temps overall.

My pc is custom built. The mb, Ram, gpu and prossesor are about 3 weeks old. At the same time I added a internal SATA hdd I had lying around as my C drive due to the fact that my mb no longer has ide ports.

Right from day one I would start the pc but get no response from the monitor, it show its getting power and its plugged into the gpu because it doesn't show the "no connection" message. This wasn't really a problem because after pushing the power button a few times everything starts up properly.

The real problem is that after 2-3 hrs of being on (either idle or gaming) the pc would suddenly freeze. Nothing would happen until I forced shutdown by holding the power button. When opening the case I observed that the one hdd (my C drive) was very hot to the touch but my other internal was only slightly warm. I ran the windows memory diagnostic tool and it came up clean.

The cpu stays constant at 50degrees.

To me this sounds like my hdd is malfunctioning but I'm not sure.

Any help/advice would be much appreciated.

A:Overheating hdd?

It sounds to me like you have three issues here.

If you have to keep pressing the power button to get the PC started, I would say your power supply is either dying or overloaded.

If the CPU stays constant at 50?c, is this at idle or under sustained load?

To get the temp of your hard drive, you need to run a program like SpeedFan or HWMonitor to access the hard drives' S.M.A.R.T. information which includes temperature readings.

Windows Memory Diagnostic tool tests RAM, not your hard drive.

The best way to test this is to go on a game and see if it freezes up (usually within the first 5 mins) and it does this even when i'm writing an email, downloading, watching a video or even when i'm just surfing the net. The reason that i'm sure it's an overheating problem is since the problem started i put a deskfan next to my computer and opened up the side and pointed it in, and then tried playing GTA:SA and it didn't freeze up and when i have that on it's never frozen up.

So, the past couple of weeks I've been experiencing bluescreens due to my gpu overheating. It gets into the 100's and then crashes, studders an odd sound, and restarts. I've tried to troubleshoot the problem but it says it cannot download a solution because I am not connected to the internet.

The first time it happened I went under the case and cleaned it out with compressed air. It worked fine again for a few days and then went back to crashing. At times it will work for hours, others it will crash after 15 or so minutes of playtime.

-I've tried increasing my fan speed, which also doesn't seem to help (Not even sure if it's working as I don't notice any difference in sound)
-I've tried dusting
-My drivers are all up to date

A:GPU Overheating

According to tests run by Anandtech, it's unlikely that your card exceeds 200 Watts power consumption: http://www.anandtech.com/show/3973/nvidias-geforce-gt-430/17

All the same, that still makes a 300 Watt PSU borderline at best. You can get a more realistic idea of your power requirements here: http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp Since blowing out the dust bunnies seems to help for a while, I suspect that the fan on your GPU cooler is going bad, so you might want to look at replacements, NewEgg.com, coolerguy.com etc. sell bunches of them, and there are plenty available around $15 bucks or so. I'm still concerned about that puny PSU.

Edit: It's also worth mentioning that a lot of utilities like SpeedFan, don't give you reliable temperature reports, or accurate control over your fan; so you shouldn't put too much faith in the numbers they report.

The only way i can play something is to drop down all game settings to low and up the cooler speed on my GPU via Catalyst at like 80%,but it gives me headache from all the noise...

Does anyone have any solution / trick / tip?

Ps my warranty is gone like half year ago...

A:GPU Overheating.

You said you opened up your GPU to clean it and you replaced the paste right..?
How many times have you completely dissembled your GPU?

So i opened speedfan and i saw that:

i cant understand what makes my cpu having such high temps.

fan: thermaltake tr2-500w
cpu:Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E8200 @ 2.66GHz

Edit:core 0 just jumped to 81C and core 1 to 83C and after like 2-3mins it went back to 70+.Anyone can figure out what the hell is going on? :S

A:cpu overheating

well, what is your cpu cooler? you listed a power supply
and I would turn off your computer as those are dangerous temps!

I've been having problems with my machie overheating recently. It only occurs whilst am playing Baldurs Gate 2 (havnt tested with other games), and i've been running Hardware Sensors monitor. Whilemy machine is idle it reports the CPU core temperature at 55C but as soon as i start the game it jumps to 70C. The hardware sensor monitor program also lists a CPU 1 temp which stays constant at around 40c, am guessing this is the actual temperatue of the heatsink and not the CPU itself. I was wondering if you thought maybe the problem is coming from the cpu not tranferring to the heatsink properly?

Recently I had a freezing problem with my computer, soon after finding out it was an overheating issue. The component overheating was my processor, the freezing understandable knowing the processor shuts down to protect itself in such a scenario. I currently use a fan blowing directly into my case to keep it from overheating and my question is to ask is there any way to keep my processor cool without having to use a fan everyday?


We could use more specific info to be of any use but the usual things apply


Is it under a desk in a corner, or on a desk with plenty of circulation?


Are you constantly under a high load (either ram or cpu)?


when was the last time is was cleaned out (thoroughly) and when was the last application of thermal paste?

A final (though I wouldnt) workaround is liquid cooling if the problem is severe.
