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

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.

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

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?

My notebook has been experiencing a problem where the screen would go black. Keyboard backlighting still works but everything else doesnt't (sound cuts if it happens wile watching a video or listening to audio). When the screen goes black, nothing I do will bring it back unless I power cycle it by holding down the power button. This only started to happen recently after coming back from a trip where the notebook was used for 8+ hours each day for 5 days (not heavy use; office work and video streaming).  After some troubleshooting, the black screen happens after I hear the fan spin up indicating that the internals are starting to get hot. Once it sounds like the fan has hit maximum rpm, the screen will go out. This sounds like a hardware defect to me, but before I send it in for warranty, I want to see if there's any suggestions on anything else that I can do. I want to avoid warranty for now since I have a big trip coming up in 2 months. Not sure if I'll have the notebook back before then.

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.)

Hi
 
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

 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.

Hope this answered your query.

So another guy told me that it was my psu that was too weak to handle the gpu. SO i bought a new one (700 watt for a gts250 green edition i know right)
But still when i go into games it does the same. I found out it was an overheating problem. My gpu would just cap 60 degrees celcius and itll switch right off. And for this type of card its very unusual. I bought 2 case fans. Its still overheats. Put new thermal paste on cpu and gpu, still not working. I even put a big fan next to my desktop and opened it up. IT STILL OVERHEATS WTF??? Please anyone help.

What happens if you overheat your graphics card? Will it shutdown or do you simply fry it the second it gets too hot?

I wanna try some hardware-accelerated stuff in linux, and since my card is stuck at 5% (unless changed with a program, WHICH DOESNT EXIST FOR LINUX, lol) fan speed it might overheat. And I dont want to fry it.

For reference, it's a Sapphire X850XT.
 

A:Overheating?

It is most likely to cras the pc than anything. Servicing your graphics card before overclocking it may be a good idea, make sure that the heatsink and fan are free of dust and that the thermal paste between the gpu and the heatsink hasn't dried out, if it has, replace it!!!!

Adding a bay cooler may be a good idea too, they are cheap and effective, but remember they only suck air out, not in, so don't place one by the gpu fan but place it above the graphics card if its possible!!!

I have run into an issue over the last couple of months where my computer will crash while playing games. It ran fine for a year up until this point, but now it only works for maybe 30 min while playing a game and then crashes. I think that it is the cpu overheating because early on when the issue first presented I attempted to start the computer after it crashed and got the error that the cpu was too hot to start. Since then I have run hardware monitoring software and did a stress test and saw the cpu was reaching 80 degrees.

I have already cleaned out the casing and fans of dust and I have already removed and reapplyed new thermal compound to the cpu, but the system still crashes and the cpu stress test still shows that the cpu peaks at 80.4 degrees. I am not sure what else I can do at this point. I have also checked and all of the fans are working.

I have a 2 year old laptop.
I play games on it and I know laptops are not really there to play games on as they overheat easily and they are less powerful but I do, I custom made a gaming laptop and thats what I wanted it for (in part).

When I first got it, it was great, never overheated. As time went on it started to overheat a bit, and once it overheated once it did it over and over. I bought a cooling pad for my laptop and that worked really well, it brought the temp down quite a lot. Then within the last month the cooling pad is no longer cooling it down enough and it overheats all the time now, even with my window open in a freezing cold room, it overheats.

The overheating temperature is 95c, when i first started using a cooling pad it was about 80-85 and now the computer will hit 95 quite easily with most games.

I cleaned the processor fan recently (had no dust in it).

Any suggestions or ideas?

Oh yea, one of my cores is always hotter than the other 3, by up to 8 degrees.
 

A:Overheating

If you're comfortable dismantling the laptop I would open it up and check for any dust/blockage between the fan to the outlet, usually the Cpu heatsink is in between them and it can get clogged up. This can happen even if the fan itself looks quite clean.

You could also replace the thermal compound between the Cpu and the Heatsink, you should definitely do this if you have to separate them.

my cpu has been overheating for a while (when it runs at 100% for like 5 - 10 min)

i know this is not a problem of software because it happens when im rendering 3d models (which runs cpu at 100% for an extended period of time)

it runs idle at about 158F and over heats at around 172F (when it shuts down)

i also know its not the heat sink when i touch it its hot. im wondering if theres a way i can fix this even at the sacrifice of cpu speed. i also took it off and reapplied heat sink compound about a week after this started.
 

A:Overheating cpu

If the heat sink is hot then the fan is not doing it's job properly.
Sometimes the fan speed reduces with age, usually when the grease/lubricant dries out.
You can fix it by taking the fan out, removing the round label in the middle, remove the little round split washer on the fan spindle, remove the fan, clean the spindle and inside the hole it fits in to, re-grease with a light grease or tiny drop of silicon oil and replace. Make sure the spit washer sits in the groove around the spindle when you put it back.
Remove any dust that's accumulated in the heat sink.
If you have a graphics card with a fan on clean that too, they do stop working.
Make sure you have adequate ventilation in the PC case.
Also if the processor voltage is adjustable in the bios make sure it's set right.
Check in the Startup to see if you can switch any other programs off that don't really need to be running. Type msconfig in the run box on the start menu and press Enter.
Click the Startup tab top right and go through the list and untick what you don't need. Restart when finished.
When it restarts click the little white box on the left in the popup, that stops it popping up every time you switch on, and it's only to tell you that something has been changed.

Hi all!

OK, I'll start from the beginning. Yesterday I bought a third SATA drive and because I found it a little bit noisier than my other two SATA's, I started researching the web about it and ended up benchmarking all of my 3 HDD's with HD Tune and here are the results.

Hitachi (HDT725032V) 320GB, 7200 RPM, 16mb cache

Seagate (ST3500630AS), 500GB, 7200 RPM, 16mb cache

Western Digital Caviar (WD2500JS-00MHB), 250GB, 7200 RPM, 8mb cache

The rest of my configurations is as follows:

ABIT AN8 SLI
2.5GB DDR RAM Kingmax 3200 400Mhz
GeForce 6600GT
Sound Blaster Audigy 4
Windows XP SP2

Windows are installed on the Hitachi and are REALLY bloated, I haven't done a fresh install for almost 2 years. The whole system performance suffers because of that. From what I understand the Hitachi and Seagate should have a little better performance results than that, could the bloated Windows install have something to do with that?

The general consenzus is that my drives are working at very high temperatures, especially the WD Caviar which is supposed to be burnt beyond recognition. But what's strange is that I'm using that WD Caviar for over 1.5 years now and I NEVER experienced any problems with it whatsoever. I have the Hitachi for about a year and had no problems at all as well. Both work flawlessly and are really quiet, so I am really pleased with them.

Hi, this is an ongoing issue with my desktop PC which i use for gaming...

Basically I get intermittent whirs of my CPU fan.

It first started when the fan was persistently whirring far too loudly for my liking, I took the case off and saw that the prats who had built it had over tightened the heat sink. It pretty much killed my CPU. I figured that i couldnt be bothered doing my own repairs so i foolishly took it to a shop (no not PCworld) and they agreed with my diagnostic. They took it away and i know they replaced the heatsink and "i think" they replaced my motherboard and processor, either way they gave me it cheap because it was one of their employees. Got it home thinking great all sorted... or not!

This was a while back and i just cant figure out whats going on!

I dont know the procedure of removing the heatsink to see anything related to my processor... but i am willing to try with instruction.

Also... before it all started going wrong, my heatsink came with a "funnel" sort of thing which kinda blew the air out of the case.

Couple of things to add
- Recently fitted a new sapphire radeon X1550
- Works fine without the case on but I'm not prepared to run it without a case all the time...

Thanks, DC

Hello!  I've roved the site for quite a long time, but finally signed up. 
 
I've got an issue with a laptop.  It is a Gateway Model MT6451.
It is running Windows Vista Home Premium SP2, 32 bit.
Processor: AMD Turion 64 [email protected] TL-50 1.6GHz
RAM: 2 GB
 
This is my uncle's laptop.  A couple of months ago, it was coming on, then turning back off almost immediately. I recommended a new battery. The new battery completely solved the problem until the other day, when the computer began doing the same thing again.
He called me again, after he had tried to start the computer a couple of times, and System Restore (or Startup Repair?) came up and said that Windows had not started properly, would he like to attempt to return it to a previous working state? So he did that, and brought it to me. It's actually been fine since I got it.
I know all to well how many problems can have the symptoms that this one has.
 
He tends to leave the laptop plugged in, since it will suddenly shut off with no warning if the battery runs too low.  So that shouldn't be it.
 
My initial thought was, "Ah, perhaps he needs a new power supply..." and then I remembered it's a laptop. I don't know much about laptop anatomy, so I don't know whether they have a power supply that can go bad like that.

Hi, I cannot seem to figure out why my GPU is overheating. It is not overclocked. It only seems to overheat when I boot up a game. Any other task that is not gaming, it runs at a very stable temperature. I've tried several different measures such as:
-Manually setting the fan speeds to 100%, then booting up a game. The temperature would steadily increase all the way up to 90 Celsius, and probably still climb had I not exited the program.
-I also took the GPU in to get the stock thermal paste removed, and then new thermal paste applied. After putting the card in again, the problems are identical, nothing has changed. The Graphics card ran at a stable 72 celsius (or less) no matter what game I ran, until a few days ago. Everything is dust free. Everything else inside the machine works perfectly, and at a stable temp. My specs are:

CPU: i7-3770 (3.4 GHZ) (8 cores)
RAM: 16 GB
GPU: Radeon HD 7970, aka: http://www.xfxforce.com/en-us/produ...-7970-double-dissipation-edition-fx-797a-tdjv
PSU: Corsair CX-750M (750 W)
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate

Any ideas as to why this card can't cool enough while gaming would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Ive had this problem with my gpu that my psu was too weak. My monitor would then go off and ill see no signal. So i had some extra (weaker) psus so i connected them together and it works! Ive seen other people doing it aswell. But now my pc is constantly overheating. I have a 330 watt that power my hdd and dvd rom. my other 450 watt is powering my cpu and gpu. But it shuts down constantly due to overheating. Should i add fans (really dont want to cause its alot of trouble) Or what should i do. I really thought this wouldve helped

Yeah I have an overheating problem. My HD heats up constantly when I paly games or when it's hot. I have a fan blow on it but that doesn't work. Does anyone have accessories that you recommend?

Hiya

Have you checked that the fan is working fully, and that there is nothing blocking it?

Also, take a look at the CPU fan, and the main fan from the power supply, for any signs of blockage.

A:Help PC OVERHEATING!?!

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.

I would say its safe to use if mine does the same thing and it runs Oblivion on Ultra High.

Whenever i play this one on line game my computer ends up crashing after a couple minutes. I looked in some sites and tried what they suggested but none of the answers did anything. I decided to see if this could be a result of overheating because i could feel waves of heat coming out of my computer. I looked on-line for a heat detector and after I installed it I ran it shortly after the crash and the computer was 109F. So could my computer be crashing as a defense mechanism because of its heat? help would be greatly appreciated
