Y50-70 Overheating

Q: Y50-70 Overheating

I have a Lenovo Y50-70, 16GB RAM, GTX960M, 512GB SSD with less than 6 month and it reaches 90șCWhen that happens, the frame rate and resolution get extremely low and whatever game i'm playing becomes unplayable. When i first got the laptop i was very surprised to see that it only had one fan exhaust and that it was blocked by the screen's hinge... but thought to myself: hey, it's Lenovo. Surely they tested this... i guess i couldn't be more wrong.I have a new gaming laptop, and i cannot play games with it...I'm not looking for replies, since i know already what i'm going to do about it.Just came here to leave this peace of information to who it might be usefull to.

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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.)

My Desktop PC has started turning off my monitor, I assume because the graphics cars is overheating (Nvidea 8800), and the only way to get the PC monitor going again is to restart the PC. How can I stop my PC from overheating?? It already has 4 fans and the card's fan in it!! What can I do?

I bought this PC second hand, its a custom build... So I dont know much about it.

firrst we need your system specs (lower left corner of your posts) so we know what hardware you have.

If its a desktop power down and unplug. ope the case and blow out with canned air. look for clogged vents, fans not running, etc.

When your using it is the case one the floor in a corner? lift it a foot or more and have un blocked air access to it.

then get a temp monitoring app and see what the temps actually are. everest, cpu-z, siw2, all will do it

Yes dried out paste can cause over heating issues so when you replace the paste it shouldn't over heat.

Well, it's kinda of a long story but I'll try to make it as short as possible.

First of all, my GPU is not overclocked, it's in stock settings.
My computer has been BSODing for a while now (a month or so), it first started only when playing games, but now it started crashing while just browsing on the internet.

All BSODs are related to "dxgkrnl.sys ; dxgmms1.sys ; nvlddmkm.sys" which are related to the GPU.

I've noticed that my computer only BSOD when my GPU temp. is way to high, for example:

I'm browsing on the internet and monitoring my GPU temp. it's stable at 55-60?C, which I think is pretty bad even for my country (Brazil, it's pretty hot here), all of a sudden after a few hours browsing and monitoring, the fans go crazy and the temp. starts to increase fast and nonstop til 90?C+, then the pc reboots and a new dump file is created relating the crash to the GPU.

So, finally, these are the methods I already tried to make it stop.

- Tried out different drivers (both new and old).
- Formatting the whole system.
- Changing PSU.
- Cleaning the dust off my computer.
- Make fans work at 100% speed during all times.
- Switching to Power Saving.


My Specs are:

GPU: Gigabyte Geforce GTX 550 Ti (1gb DDR 5)
Motherboard: MSI H61M-E22 (MS-7788)
CPU: Intel i5-3330 @ 3.00 GHz
Ram: DDR3 4gb Markvision 2x
PSU: Thermaltake (Brand) TR2-500NL2NC (Model)


Hope you guys can found why or give me some ideas why it's happening. Thanks in advance.

My specs: Dell Studio 1558, ATI Radeon 5470, i5, 8gb DDR3, 500gb HD, 1080p screen.
First, my screen would randomly go out and display red and green lines for a few seconds, and then go black. I would restart and then the computer would be fine for a little while and do it again. Then the next day the whole computer would just randomly die, not just the screen. I would turn back on and it would only stay on for a few seconds and then die again. I wait for a few hours and come back and it will stay on for a while and then die.
My original diagnosis is overheating and so I took the heat sink off of the gpu and cpu and replaced all the thermal paste with arctic silver 5. It hasn't fixed anything. Now it won't stay on more than 20 seconds.
I have checked the hard drive in another computer and it is fine. I don't know what else to do. Any ideas on what my problem is?

I'm running a Sony VAIO laptop that will randomly shut down every once in a while - yesterday, after this happened, I turned it on again, only for it to tell me, "OS not found." It turns on and works fine now, but I wish I knew what was going on
 

A:[xp] OS and/or overheating

Most random shutdowns are caused by either overheating or a faulty power supply. In a laptop it's kind of hard to pinpoint what's happening but you can download some kind of utility that will monitor the internal temp. of the machine. Maybe one of the fans went out our the battery is old & needs to be replaced.

Lately I've been having to put a fan on my computer to do anything without my computer getting really hot. I can't watch a whole media file without it pausing on me for 2 minutes and then screwing up the placement of the file.

If I leave my computer on without a fan, my hard drive and my graphics card feel really hot. I leave the case open and have a fan pointed at it, however it's getting cold and having the fan pointed at the computer is starting to make the room cold.

Has anyone ever had this problem? Maybe it sounds familiar or someone might know what's wrong just by my description. If anyone could help at all that's great, feel free to ask questions. I keep my files cleaned and defragged which helps a little but not enough.

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!!!

My stock gpu's (nvidia geforce 230) fan broke and I do not want to upgrade it because I plan on building a computer within a year. I bought the vantec iceberq fan as a replacement, however instead of being a simple fix, my gpu now runs at around 78 degrees idle, and 70 with the fan set to max. If I put any game on, temperatures reach about 105 degrees within a couple minutes and the gpu shuts off. Opening the side of my case makes no difference in temperature and I'm at a loss for a cheap solution.

Zero dust anywhere (also, its a brand new fan), fan spins properly and at a good speed, cleaned and reapplied the thermal paste included in the kit and the fan sits directly on top of the gpu chip (metal part seen in picture is removed, gpu chip is under the horizontal lines).

Any help would greatly be appreciated! Thank you.

My PC keeps freezing up, sometimes with a constant beep.

I have a GeForce 4 (MX440), which I think are known for heat issues, and since I can't see that my Athlon 2400XP could be overheating at 60, I thought maybe the graphics card is?

Try a different usb cable to start with.

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

I'm assuming my GPU is fried or close to being completely unusable, just thought I'd come and ask for a second opinion.

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.

And then I upgraded the power supply to the Corsair Enthusiast 550 W and then my Graphic card to AMD Radeon HD 6850

I've had this installed for a while now and I've played Crysis and games on it for hours on end and everything seems fine. Like the computer doesn't turn off or anything like that. But lately I've been playing Far Cry 3... and the game runs smoothly and I managed to play it for 5 hours, however after a while one of the fans got loud...so I just turned it off. I try to take a break. Play for 1 hour and then wait it out cause I don't want it to over heat.

But on idle the temperatures seem fine... (These are the temperatures literally a ferw mins after I turn the game off.)
But if I decide to turn on Far Cry 3... literally in 5 mins the temperatures rise to this:
Essentially what I wanna know is.. Why is it still playable and I don't see the computer turning off... The game runs beautifully on my computer with 40-60 FPS+ on Ultra High graphics. But yet when I alt tab to check the temperatures... its crazy hot. Which scares me so I end up turning it off. Any helps or tips? :/ Should I take a pic of the inside of my computer so y'all can see?
 

A:Why is it overheating?

The fans speed up to remove more heat and prevent it from shutting down, they are working as designed.

Your temps are not crazy hot, they are not that hot at all according to your screenshots. The CPU's max operating temp is 71 degrees, I can't find the GPU's max temp but generally their max is in the 90's or even above 100.

An easy check and way to lower temps though is to make sure it's dust free.

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.

Hello, I just got a P50 in order to bring to college in the fall. Since I don't have any serious work to do, I've installed a few games to take advantage of the computer until then. However, I have noticed a problem. Playing Skyrim, one of my more intensive games, the computer gets very hot if placed flat on a hard surface such as a desk or table. The game has also crashed a few times when the computer has been on a flat surface and is very hot, which I believe may be due to throttling because of the heat. However, when propped up slightly to provide more clearance for the vents on the bottom, it stays much cooler and has not yet crashed my game. Is overheating normal for a laptop under heavy load like this? More specifically, is this behavior normal for the P50, or might I have a defective part? Thanks!

A:Overheating

Download Sensors View and post a screenshot of its readings from when you first switch on, and another after you've run some programs for a while, so we can see any variations in the temperatures and voltage values.

Also, open up your case and copy down the details from the label on the Power Supply Unit. Post back with this info and your full system specs.

Check your system's power requirements here (add 30% to the total to allow for PSU inefficiency)

Do you have a fan at the front of the case pulling cool air in and one at the back blowing warm air out? Check all fans are spinning and unobstructed by cables. Get a can of compressed air and clean any dust out of the case, especially around the fans and heatsink.

The case has 4 fans including the power supply, and they are all working, but still whenever I am downloading, playing music, watching a movie, or playing game (not graphically intensive) it will shut off. I'm pretty sure that's overheating because once it turns off I have to wait a while before I can turn it back on. My system specs are 1 dvd burner, 1 SATA 200GB drive, and 1 ATA 250GB, p4 3.0 Ghz and 1 gig of memory in a koala case. Btw I think it arose when I put in the new ata drive. Any suggestions

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

What are your system temps?

Download the free Everest programme from HERE

Run the programme, and click on the large computer icon, followed by the sensor icon.

My computer has been overheating a lot lately (at least I think It's overheating)

It overheats on some simple games such as Fire Emblem (GBA EMU game)
Web Based flash games
Ultima Online
and Morrowind

I'm pretty sure it is over heating because I opened the case and had a house fan next to it on high and I have no problems but it leaves me cold.

I currently have 2 case fans and a CPU fan in my computer.

Case Fan 1 = 4800 RPM
Case Fan 2 = 3200 RPM

CPU Fan = ???? RPM

A:Overheating?

There is a program called Speedfan and it will monitor the temperature sensors that are present on the vast majority of motherboards. Download and install it, run a game for a little bit, then close the game and see what your temps are operating at.

There are usually some fairly cheap fixes to a computer overheating. You can buy a can of compressed air for like $5(US), or you could purchase a new heatsink fan/thermal compound for around $30-40(US).

Another valid (and by far the cheapest) solution, is to simply leave off the side of your case...you may not even need a desktop fan blowing into the side...simply the open side helps significantly (this is how my comp runs )

Hi guys, my processor is constantly overheating to the point where my PC (reaches 99 to 101 degrees celcius) and just overheats and shuts down, I cant use it for about half an hour after as it need to cool down.

Is there any way to slow down my processor or something to reduce the heat from 100 degrees celcius to something more acceptable.

At the moment my acronis backup cant get past 13% as it always reaches 100oC at this time.

Help?!

I cant identify the problem..but I have reason to believe my computer is either overheating on my vid card or my pcu..problem is..both fans work..I have 2 fans on the case, one on vid and the pcu fan.

Problem: When I play SOME games I start to hear a beep about 5 mins into it. And if I play too long while it beeps, my comp shuts down. But other games like...World of Warcraft are fine at full settings. At default most games I play pic the best settings and yet I still get this BEEP noise. Ive cleaned out my comp so there is lil to no dust..all the fans run..So im at a loss. Ive run a temp test, and everything is fine

Help?
 

A:Overheating somewhere

What games do cause it to shut down?

Hello.

I've been having this problem since a couple of months back. The computer started to randomly crash, with no error message whatsoever, with the power light flashing.

I discovered that it might have something to do with overheating and checked the system stats with PCWizard, which got me the following:

*Seemingly, my mainboard temperature was 70-80 'C while idle, and around 100 'C while normally using the computer. A bizarre thing. (I also noticed that the board was surprisingly hot when I touched it almost directly after the computer shutdown)
*The processor fan shows 0 rpm, although it is spinning.

If this would be the result of a faulty connected cooler, I wonder how come it hasn't showed up until now?

These crashes have been really troublesome. I'm hopeful that I'll get some help here.
Sincerely, Chiss.

(This is my system)

Manufacturer : MEDION
Mainboard : MSI MS-7010
Chipset : VIA K8T800 (VT8383)

A:Overheating (?)

Is it possible the fan is spinning off and on? Not working the way it should be. Spinning but not doing it's job? Clean your system out if it's dusty, consider re-doing your thermal paste on the system and replace the fan if you need to.

Computer shutting down during gaming.

I noticed that the CPU runs at 40 degrees celcius on idle. That was a couple of weeks ago.

last night my pc shuts down more frequently that usual. even on idle. about every 30 minutes. I opened the case. Fan is working.
\

Then this morning my pc shut down. Turns on for a second and shuts down again.

Turned off the pc (and unplugged it, ofcourse), CPU heatsink is hot. very hot.

Thermal paste is dried out.

Suggestions?

Get a new fan? Or simply reapply thermal paste?

The CPU doesnt look damaged. No smells. No burn marks. Just the Thermal paste that looks dried out.

A:Overheating CPU...

I would use new thermal paste first

Hi this is my first post here

PC specs at bottom

I have been having this problem for a while and havent been able to completely resolve it but have managed to lessen it.

I built my computer in the early spring. The first game I bought/installed was half-life 2. As soon as I tried to start the opening cinematic, my computer would crash. I fixed this problem by disabling and unnecessary programs from running in the background of my computer. Since then the game has run perfectly. I soon decided to benchmark my rig with 3dmark-05. After about ten seconds of running the actual 3dmark app, the same problem reoccured - my PC would crash, the LEDs and power still on, but a blank [powersave mode] monitor screen.

My first suspiscion is my RAM. I bought Ultra 512mb pc3200 budget memory. Plus the memory does not have a heatspreader attatched.

Next would be my video card which is an XFX Nvidia Geforce 6600GT 128Mb card. Since the problem only occurs during visually demanding apps, I had a feeling something may be wrong with my videocard. I have tried to see if my GPU's fan is operational but am unable to completely see because the fan faces the bottom of my chassis. Also, I have a Vantec PCI dual fan card running right under my GPU which should be adding extra cooling...very confusing indeed.

Finally, could this be a *gulp* proccessor problem?! I am running an Intel P4 3.34 Ghz processor on a Chaintech Summit series motherboard. The CPU has an Aerotech heatsink/fan on it but ... Read more

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.

Hi

Great site, new member here and first post!

Gericom Overd.2 PIII 800mhz laptop with a GERICOM/KAPOK INTEL 440BX/ZX
Motherboard came to me with a loose power supply pin connector, so no power, battery dead too and doesnt hold charge. De-soldiered motherboard connector then re-soldierd connector back onto mainboard. Laptop powers up fine now, only to develop what seems to be a overheating problem as it freezez and locks up after the first 5 minutes of power-up.

This happens even in the bios/cmos setup screen, it just freezez. Tested memory, fan is working when it freezez up in bios, heatsink cleaned, new thermal pad, tried thermal paste aswell, cleared cmos via disconnecting cmos battery, detached hard drive, re-seated processor, cleaned mainboard with commpresed air but Still no joy. Ive been up every night and now have great big bags under me eyes and the mrs not too pleased either, its all becoming a bit disappointing really!

Respect to all who read and reply and any suggestions tips or pointers would be highly appreciated!

Hi, I own an Alienware computer. A while ago it started beeping and overheating. The heatsink is clean so I think I might be having a problem with either the psu or the bios needs to be updated. When I go to the alienware support page it doesn't offer me a BIOS update. I have tried to get help on this before but keep having to start over again.Here are my specs and thanks!

Alienware 64bit running win xp
motherboard- ABIT av8
processor- AMD 4000+
GFX- Raedon 9550s
Ram- 2 gigs
psu- emerson 460 watts

A:CPU overheating

The temp stays about 60-70C but whenever the cpu is working on something (video, music, virus scan) it can go over 100c. It cools down quickly which makes me think it is being cooled properly. Here is a screen shot of speed fan core temp and heavy load.
