laptop too hot? - May 26th 2010, 03:00 PM

Whats a good core temperature for you laptop to be at, since I'm sure mine's is far too high. Its fluctuating between 86 - 90 degrees celsius, usually the higher of the two if i have itunes running. Not tested it whilst playing WoW.

Anyway, my laptop is too hot to sit on my lap, and is this temp i stated too high?

I'm not too sure on the temperatures, but are you using your laptop directly on your lap? Because you could be blocking the fan which will cause your laptop to get really hot. Use it on a table of some description.

EDIT. That temperature does look too high, but I could be wrong. Do you know if your fan in the laptop works? Because that is what cools the laptop down. And if it's failing to work, then your laptop would get really hot.

i often have it on my lap but it doesnt cover the vents, its been on the table all day, and has cooled down to 79 degrees with the minimum things running, but if i want to do anything substancial it goes right back up to about 90 degrees again...

Have you tried googling the make and model of your laptop in relation to the average temperature, to see if there's any information out there about what the temperature should be? or Whether there is a fault with your make of laptop in relation to the temperature?

Wow, what are you running? Mine never goes above 60

Someone suggested that I get a cooling pad for my laptop, it should stop it over heating a little.

Re: laptop too hot? - May 26th 2010, 04:16 PM

Yeah i've been thinking on getting one, but I still think this is way too hot. Atm its 79 oC and i'm only running chrome, msn, and itunes. If I put any game on it goes up to around 90 again. Bearing in mind that Its an entertainment laptop so it should be ok...

90'C is BAD for anything except the latest Intel processors and.... possibly some older CPU's (my own gaming rig crashes above 45'C!! ) Could you please give us the specs?

They look quite high - you should be hitting 75'C max. I can only really suggest a checking that the vents aren't clogged with dust and perhaps investing in a cooling pad?

Is the fan working? Because my cousin had a Advent laptop, and the temperatures would get really high, and the fan wouldn't even kick in. We called them and they picked it up to get it looked at and repaired.

The fan is either not working, or not doing it's job properly. Because that should keep the temperature down. If that's not the case, then like others have said, try a cooling pad or similar.

Under heavy continuous use, 70 is a normal temperature, however, anything above 80, load or not, is considered very high risk. At 90, I would assume there is thermal damage, likely even significant.

Has your computer frozen up, suddenly turned off, rebooted, or blue-screened? These are common indicators of thermal issues.

I would honestly reccomend not even turning your computer on, and using a different computer until you've heard back from HP.

If it's a fan, you may get lucky, as that could be covered by warranty, but if there's thermal damage, and the cooling systems are working normally, it would not likely be a warranty repair/replacement.
