Sudden overheating problem after six months - advice?

Q: Sudden overheating problem after six months - advice?

I have a Samsung RF510 laptop; really nice and plays games nicely, but as of yesterday I've had a problem.

Whenever -anything- that runs causing the fan to start roaring and the vents to get hot, the laptop will suddenly shut down after just 10 minutes. It could be games, I could be rendering a video in sony vegas, doesn't matter.

Thing is, the corner where the vents were would always get really hot on my laptop and this has never posed a problem before; only now it is suddenly shutting down. It's never done this before yesterday, and I mean never. Even a week straight of 5 hours of Borderlands on max settings every night never caused an issue.

Would blowing compressed air into the vents help? Is there a known issue (I did LOTS of searching all day, though it only found people with similar problems who haven't fixed them)? should I try something else completely?

I would appreciate any advice! I can provide additional specs if necessary.

Preferred Solution: Sudden overheating problem after six months - advice?

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Compressed air might help. Is this notebook on a flat surface when you use it? Try not to use these thing on bed covers and sheets.

Hi guys, I have this PC with this spec:

RAM - 2x kingston 2GB DDR3
VGA - NVIDIA GeForce GTS250
MB - GIGABYTE S-SERIES GA-P41T-ES3G
CPU - Intel Core 2 Quad CPU
PSU - SimCool 430W

My problem is that my PC starts to give me sudden shut down problem. no warning, no nothing, just shut down like when we pull the power plug.

I went to the shop where I bought this PC to check for any hard drive error, and they said nothing is wrong with it. they gave me a new power cable, the PC lasted for a 1 or 2 days without the problem.

And then now it started to give me this problem all over again.

Any comments or speculation on where the problem is?
anything i need to know to fix this?

Thanks for the help guys =)
 

A:Sudden shut down problem after not being turned on for 2 months

It could be any number of issues. What are your system temperatures? Sudden shut-downs can be caused by an overheating CPU.

Use HWMonitor to check your temps. If they're under control then it may be a problem with the PSU.

Howdy all! I was here in the past a while ago with getting semi-frequent BSODs on boot after the splash and login screen. The issue I found was a loose power connector. I snugged it in place, and then my system is fine for many months (maybe four or five). Now this morning, I had quite a few BSODs after the splash screen and logging onto my computer. I was finally able to get a successful boot after many attempts. I checked power connections, tried to make the connections secure, yet still got BSODs. Dump is attached. You guys are awesome.

i just built this computer about 2 and a half months ago and all has been well. ive been playing games like half-life2 and oblivion and everything was fine. then a few days ago i bought vanguard and i was playing it for 2-3 hours straight yesterday and the day before and everything was fine but then all of a sudden today i was playing for about a half an hour and my computer just shut down and made the beep code for cpu overheating. anyone have any suggestions as to why it can go from all is well to cpu overheating in one day?
 

A:CPU is overheating all of a sudden

We're going to need some sort of PC specs/info to help.

Taking a wild stab in the dark and completely guessing- I'd guess it might be a Socket 775/Intel based cpu. If so, make sure the four(4) cpu screws didn't simply come loose or settle outwards. This happens sometimes and causes the heatsink to come loose a bit so it's no longer making good contact with the CPU.

Crank them puppies back down as one may simply be loose.

So my laptop (Acer Aspire 5942g i7 model) has been working fine up till today.
Today it has suddenly started to overheat and cut out, this has been getting really annoying so far, the core temps won't go below 70 on a power saving plan, and when on high performance will even reach 90, which is not healthy at all. What do you think could have caused this? I mean, it's just so sudden that It's quite surprising that something like this would happen, I mean, nothing has changed for the laptop. I mean the weather in the UK is a little warm, but it's the UK, so it's nothing major, 17 degrees C, however the humidity is at 90%, which leads me to worry, but it can't all be that can it?

Thanks, G
 

A:Incredibly sudden overheating

Try and blow out the heatsink with a can of air...but hold the fan still when you do it

Could be dust build up or maybe the fan has a problem.

A:Any suggestions for sudden shutdown due to overheating?

Your assumption is correct. 100 celsius is too high.
Something has to be wrong with your watercooler, heat sink, or you have no thermal paste.

Hi, I've recently upgraded my computer, here's the current spec:

CPU : Intel Core2Duo E6850 3.0GHz

Motherboard : Intel Classic Series DG31PR

RAM : Kingston 2GB 667MHz

HDD : 160GB

Video Card : ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT

PSU : 450W

Everything's fine except when I play games like NeverwinterNights 2 and Half-Life 2: Lost Coast. The computer suddenly hangs and the screen blanks out after about 5-6 minutes everytime I play those games. The computer cannot reset, I have to manually turn off the power and turn on again to restart. What is the problem? My friend says it could be overheating. My idle computer temperature is around 66-69C. Is this normal? If not, what should I do?

Thanks
 

A:Sudden crashes while playing games...overheating?

I think the temp is too high and while you play games it will raise. did you also upgrade the cpu fan? Idle temp for intels should be 40 to 45 C.
check heat transfer paste, fan, maybe the psu gets too hot and warms up the whole desktop?

A:2 blown mobos in 6 months - any advice please guru's?

Hi brentxlee
My question to you guys is, is this normal?? No not normal unless you are thrashing the daylights out of the unit.
2 motherboards in less than 6 months?
Could my psu somehow be blowing my motherboards? Is that possible? Yes it is possible, do you see any burn marks anywhere, sometimes MOSFETS blow up near the CPU.
I'm probably going to have to replace the mobo, should I just replace the psu same time? Has anyone else had a problem like this, and have a solution to offer?
If it were me I would replace the power supply just in case it has a weird problem, you could probably use it in an older system where it would not get pushed so hard. Get a more powerful one say 750W. I would also consider another vendor for a motherboard just for peace of mind. Asus and Gigabyte are very highly rated. It is possible that the particular configuration you have is not as reliable as it should be.
Took a look at the PSU and MB on New Egg's reviews and they both have a fairly high failure rate.
I use Enermax but Corsair and Silverstone power supplies are well recommended. Time to choose different suppliers for your replacements. You could RMA them both as I assume they are both still under warranty?

Hello everyone. My laptop(Asus K450JN, same as my system spec below) suddenly crashed today and there was no BSOD or any other error message. I wasn't playing games and there was no overheating. It happened just like a force shutdown(like someone pressing the power button and shutting it off), Note that my power button needs to be pressed(hold) for a few seconds if you want to shut it down.

I was running google chrome and firefox when it happened. To be more specific, I was using gitter, and learning javascript from codeacademy. Can anyone help me with this?

Update- I tried playing games for some time and thus increasing temperature, but there is no shutdown yet(at the time of writing)

Dear TSG,
My GPU is overheating when I play intensive PC games, causing the computer to crash and shut itself down.
It's an ATI HD 4870. My understanding is that they do run hot but within 5 minutes of running high-end games (Olympics 2012, Sonic Generations) the temperature reported is over 100 degrees with 100% fan usage. Playing for another 5 minutes leads the PC to shut itself down. The idle temperature is around 85 degrees, and this is with the case open!

How do I go about getting this temperature down so I can play new games? I don't want to replace the graphics card as it was quite pricy and they're must be another way??

Any help would be appreciated,

A:Need help or advice with extreme overheating

Case fans rarely help. There are many studies that show only 1 to 3 degrees difference in the temperature at the CPU.
Your problem likely relates to either too much or too little thermal paste, combined with a lousy stock CPU fan. I would immediately replace it with a Zalman or better CPU fan, being careful of the huge ones. Many will not fit in cases not designed for them. Replace the heat sink and the fan by getting a combo unit. Then remember that you need just barely enough thermal paste to ensure full contact between the heatsink and the CPU. More than the minimum can actually have the effect of an insulator.
Your Athlon 64 X2 4600+ runs very hot normally, so extra precautions are in order.
You might also want to purchase a thermal temperature gun to double-check the temperature reading devices on your computer. Of course the shutdown tells you the problem is severe.

I have a AMD Althon 64 3200 with a NVIDIA 5950 Ultra card in a Visionman Gaming case running XP SP2. There are 3 case fans plus the CPU & GPU fans - all running. The case has 4 vents in and 3 blowing air out. All vid. & bios drivers are updated.

Running BF2 it will run until the lcd temp display on the front shows 120F then shuts down BF2 and returns to Winblows desktop.

I need advice where to look to fix this. The fans all run, room temp is ~80F, lots of air flowing in and out. Are there settings on the vid. card or in the BIOS I can change to make this stop happening?
 

A:Need advice - Althon & Nvidia overheating

In your bios you should have the ability to turn off automatic shutdown. However if it is acutally running that hot I would not suggest it. Also get another program that monitors the tempature and see if the current thing you have monitoring them is correct.

A:[Advice Offered] Laser Printer overheating

I work in a print shop, and 500 A4 in one go will over heat your printer, have you checked to see if dust is clogging the fan , and that you have a good breeze of air coming out?, why not print them in batches of 50 or so, to let it cool down a bit.

A:Video Card overheating because of defected fan, in need of advice

This can happen if your case insides are too dusty, causing dust to accumulate on the card and jam the fan, in which case you'd have to clean it out with a can of compressed air. Another cause would be the case itself not being ventilated properly, thus causing the internal ambient temperature to rise.

I update and save quite a few files each day, and I can see in File History that there are many saved versions for these files.
This would fill up my backup drive fairly quickly, and therefore, I need to reduce 'Keep saved versions' from the default of 'forever' to about 3 months.  But does this mean that all files older than 3 months will be deleted my File History backup?
 What happens to all my files that have only ever been saved once, but are older than 3 months?  Are these retained in File History or deleted?
The forums on File History do no make this very clear.

Same M-DS H motherboard Intel E Corsair GB x GB DDR MHz PC - XMS DHX Memory Non-ECC Unbuffered CL - - - x Samsung SpinPoint TB hard drives Running Windows in -bit Every three or months the computer quot dies quot At start up i get blue screen saying A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent Same problem every 3 months. damage to your computer A process or thread crucial to system operation has been unexpectedly exited or some other stuff about did i just install new hardware etc Technical information STOP x F x xFFFFFA XFFFFFA A XXFFFFF D FF Collecting data for crash dump Initializing disk Same problem every 3 months. for crash dump Beginning dump of physical memory Dumping physical memory to disk Over the last couple of years this has happened times What I did in the past Same problem every 3 months. was to re-install the operating system on a new blank hard drive and then copy over all the info from the previous hard drive That has worked fine which makes me believe this is not a problem with Windows but possibly a problem with the motherboard What i also find strange is that after installing the OS again things are fine for about of months then BSOD Are you able to tell me more about the error message the reason for this problem and how to solve it Many thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer Alex

A:Same problem every 3 months.

Can you please provide a JCGriff report as mentioned here? Thanks. That'll give us enough to feed on.

While waiting for us to analyze, you may also want to do some hardware tests in the meantime. Here's some options:

CPU: Prime95 (Torture Test; Large FFTs; 9+ hours)
RAM: Memtest86+ Run overnight (or at least 7 passes)
HD: Seatools (Short & Long Self Tests)
GPU: MemtestG80/CL

To add, you can turn on Driver Verifier. Any crashes produced while it is on have a much better chance pointing us at an offending driver (if it's caused by a driver).

A:I've been battling with this problem for months now!! Help me please somebody?

you can reinstall windows without lossing everything, boot from cd, hit enter, after it searches for previous versions hit r to repair the installation. make sure you have the product key before you begin. maybe someone else knows how to fix the problem without doing that though?

The USB keyboard becomes inoperative after 5-15 minutes of use...if you unplug it and plug it back in it works fine (again for a few minutes) we have tried sever KB's from different manufactures they all have the same problem. Have also tried various USB ports - that also makes no difference.   We are not using the wireless keyboard that came with the machine. ANY IDEAS ?

My computer keeps crashing, 2-3 times a day. Usually it's when I'm streaming video.

I've attached the required jcgriff files. Please help!


PS - Could be relevant: I'm running an overclocked V3 gaming machine

A:months-long BSOD problem - please help!

Recommendations:BugCheck 0x116
These crashes are DirectX/graphics card related. DirectX comes installed with Windows, so this may indicate Windows corruption. It may also be that you have corrupted drivers or a graphics card hardware problem.
If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

Run a system file check to check Windows for corruption: Click Start Menu
Click All Programs
Click Accessories
Right click Command Prompt
Click Run as administrator
Type
Code:
sfc /scannow
and press Enter
Once it is complete, make note of the message. If it says Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations., restart your computer and post back
If the message does not say Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations., restart your computer and do steps 1-6 again.
You may need to do steps 1-6 up to three times with a restart in between each run to resolve all corrupted files.
If you still have corrupted files after a fourth run, post back here with the following:Click Start Menu
Click Computer
Open your C: drive
Open Windows
Open Logs
Open CBS
Copy and paste CBS.log or CBS (it may not have the log extension) to a location you will remember.
Compress (zip) the CBS file and attach the .zip file to your next post.


Follow the steps for Diagnosing basic problems with DirectX. To re-install your display card drivers as outlined in the DirectX link, use the following steps.
Download the drivers you want for your display card(s)
Click Start Menu
Click Control Panel
Click Uninstall a program
For NVIDIA:Uninstall the NVIDIA Graphics Driver (this should uninstall all NVIDIA software and drivers)
Restart your computer
Make sure NVIDIA 3D Vision Driver, NVIDIA 3D Vision Video Player, NVIDIA HD Audio Driver, and NVIDIA PhysX System Software are not still listed under Uninstall a program through Control Panel
If any remain of the above, uninstall one at a time
If asked to restart after uninstalling any of the above, do so, and continue uninstalling any remaining NVIDIA items until all are removed

Restart your computer after uninstalling drivers for all display cards
Install the driver you selected for the display cards once Windows starts

Remember to try multiple versions of the graphics drivers, download them fresh, and install the freshly downloaded drivers.


Quote:




Before you proceed with the following, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: The steps that follow can void your warranty!!!




For 0x116 Video TDR Error crashes: A 0x116 TDR crash means the system sent a signal to the display card to refresh the video, and the display card did not respond. This may be due to a driver error or a hardware error with respect to the display card.If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

Monitor temperatures during the following tests. Use the following programs to monitor the temperatures. Real Temp is a good CPU temperature monitor.
Speccy - System Information - Free Download will monitor all hardware temperatures.
HWiNFO, HWiNFO32 & HWiNFO64 - Hardware Information and Analysis Tools can be inaccurate for CPU temperatures, but is a good program for GPU temperature monitoring.

Run FurMark to test the display card for artifacts and temperature issues.FurMark
Run display device memory tests to check the display card for memory problems.Display device memory tests
Run Memtest86+ for at least 7-10 passes. It may take up to 22 passes to find problems. Make sure to run it once after the system has been on for a few hours and is warm, and then also run it again when the system has been off for a few hours and is cold.Test RAM with Memtest86+

I'm not sure what you mean by this?
What is the make and model of your computer? You may have a Recovery Partition on your computer. If you start up your computer, you may have a quick message over the logo that says Press (key) to Enter Recovery, sometimes this is F11. If so, this will set your computer back to Factory Defaults. This will remove all personal data, so backup first.
If you do not have a recovery partition, then read up on the link in my signature PC Running Slow? And try those things.

For around two or three months the system has been crashing on a weekly or biweekly basis and wasn't so much of a problem as to interfere and warrant investigation on my part. Within the past few days, however, it has gotten much worse and now crashes at least once daily. I have done what I can with my limited computer skills and determined ntoskrnl.exe is the culprit and followed some potential solutions found on this forum as well as other sites but to no avail. Although it may be mere coincidence, I feel it is worth noting that the vast majority of crashes (90%+) occur when the computer has been left on but I am not currently at the desk working on anything. Any help would be much appreciated, thank you!

I've been getting BSOD for months now, and it is driving me crazy. I cannot find out the problem.

Things I've done, that has not helped:
-New/upgraded power supply
-Memtest = No faulty ram
-New hard drive = no help
-Took out graphics card to try onboard graphics = Still crashes

I bought this machine from dell outlet about 8 months ago. Had no problems for a few weeks, and then slowly the blue screen of death became more frequent.

I'm not really sure what system information I need to include in my post, but it is a 64bit windows 7. Please let me know what else I can do to help fix this problem, it is driving me insane and I am on the verge of ordering a mac.

A:BSOD- Persistent for months, cannot pinpoint problem. Different codes

Hi Ray welcome to SF

Please remove and clean avg from your system using the avgremoverx64

Download and instal Microsoft Security Essentials

Enable windows firewall.

A:Overheating Laptop and New Laptop advice?

Hello Willisme1. Welcome to the forum.

I'm sure you will get lots of advice about buying a new laptop here from others, but as for your overheating laptop - that is most often cause by dust clogging the heatsink and vents. Have you cleaned it?

Also check the heatsink fan to be sure it is blowing. These do start to fail after some time.

A:possible overheating problem

No offense, but do you really think all PNY cards overheat and fail?

Sounds like you have a faulty card or a case with really poor airflow (and/or too much heat build up from other hardware). As it's new, contact PNY. They will want to troubleshoot and will RMA if it's faulty.

With that said, for testing purposes, use a single card.

I have just had my Ivy Bridge crash and am trying to reinstall Windows on a new drive but when I start the machine up - it has almost completed the install the BIOS lets go with warning beeps and a message that the CPU is over temp.

In the BIOS it is set to the auto settings for any of the CPU and fans stuff and I am not really overly confident in what I should be setting. The CPU an i5 3570K is hitting 81C whenever I start the machine up and refuses to budge past the BIOS beeps.

It is a reasonably new build about seven months so I don't think it is the thermal and the Intel LC cooler block feels almost cold to the touch as does the rad.

Any ideas appreciated as this is just another set back in a horror two days.

A:Overheating problem?

No question, it's overheating. You've probably have surpassed the threshold of software you can run on your system without needing more cooling. Current installed software gets larger with updates and newer versions a 2 to 4 times largers. Consequently, you system runs a lot more software which generates a lot more heat. My step-fathers computer started crashing on anti-virus scans because the detections rules were twice as large as when he initially bought the computer. The scans took twice as long and the system overheated.

I'd suggest, if you have't already, add a "system fan". Basically, you add a second fan at the vent in the back of the chassis. Your CPU fan helps draw heat off the heatsink on your CPU but the chamber can't vent the hot air fast enough. The second "system fan" helpe evacuate the chamber.

Repost if this isn't a solution.

Recently there has been a serious overheating problem in my computer tower pertaining to my video card (ATI Radeon 9800 Pro). For some reason, I can only have the computer on for a few minutes before the card overheats, causing my comp to crash. Also I can smell something during the crash, perhaps the plastic of the card. Whatever it is, it has a strong odor. The odd thing is though. This can be avoided if I turn on my computer, then turn off again and then turn back on in a couple of minutes. If I do this, I can keep the comp on for as long as I need. However, if i stress the card by running games (new ones and old ones), my comp crashes.

Ive had this card for about a year, and havent had any hardware changes made since its installation so i have no idea why this is happening now.
Suggestions?

What is happening to my CPU?

Are you using the stock cooler? I have the same CPU and ended up replacing the stock cooler because of bad temperatures. How is the rest of your system's cooling situation? The highest recommended temperature that CPU is rated for is 62C for the processor and 72C for the AM3+ socket.

Hi all,

I have recently been having a problem with my CPU over-heating when running large processes (like games in fullscreen etc). It automatically restarts the machine when reaching 70c (which I understand is the maximum temperature for the CPU).I am aware that this problem has occurred to other people using the AMD Athlon 64 processor. The problem has been happening for a while but I can't remember the exact time/date. However I remember this problem not happening with my old PSU. My old PSU was 500w and my new one is probably half that.

Can a lower voltage PSU cause problems with a CPU overheating? Would be interesting to know as I would rather pin-point the problem then waste a load of cash

Thanks

A:Help With Overheating Problem

It seems the program has gotten the values switched around. If your motherboard were 70C, you'd have a very noticable problem. So it is much more likely that it's the CPU running at 70.
But that's still a bit hot. (though not too bad, if my memory serves correct)

The easiest way to do something about that is to use a more efficient HSF (heatsink). But before you run out and buy one, let's get into a bit more detail.

How is your pc slowing down? (And who told you to clean your HSF?)
Have you tried to overclock it, or? And have you done any changes to the hardware lately?
Last, what type of Celeron is it? And what is your motherboard?
If you don't know the celeron type, just give us which motherboard you are using, and aprox time of when you bought the cpu...

Its seems to be running well with 3dmark scores about 10500. Ever since i have had the machine (about a year) a high pitched whistle can be heard from the case. I have looked inside and fiddled around making sure everything is screwed down correctly, and im sure the sound is coming from the PSU. Sometimes it gives me a headache! Today i had a temperature warning and it peaked at 70 degrees celsius and im sure this is too hot. It normally runs at around 55 degrees. Does this sound right? Could the PSU be knackered?

Hello! I've recently bought the HP Omen 15, the 2016 edition with a GTX 965m 4GB and a i7 6700hq. Whenever I play light games the temps are absolutely fine. World of Warcraft, both GPU and CPU both stay around or below 70, which is amazing. However, when I play something more demanding, like Overwatch, it raises de cpu usage to around 40-50% and with it the temps up to 90+ degrees. The GPU however, stays cool, under 70 degrees. These high temps are clearly unhealthy for the CPU and for the computer in general, is this normal?  I remind you, the CPU usage is only at 40% with occasional ups to 50%. Thanks! 

A:Overheating problem

With the high specifications of the PC, it is expected to get hot to a certain point and the Omen is built to handle those temperatures. However, if you feel that the temperatures are too high and if it also causes performance issue like locking or freezing up then call HP support and have them take a look at the PC.  Alternatively you could use an external cooling pad/ cooling fan to reduce the temperatures slightly when playing high CPU usage games. The only reason i could think of at the moment with regards to it overheating is if its always being overclocked or in turbo mode the whole time. that could cause a few overheating issues

No that is absolutely not normal. Either the sensors are broken or your CPU cooler is not in its place correctly, or the fan in it isn't spinning. Reseat the cooler, clean it of the old thermal solution, apply new thermal paste, preferably Arctic Silver 5 or other good stuff, when putting the cooler in place have your motherboard out of the case so you can be sure about all the pushpins going fully through the motherboard.

Buy a can of compressed air, try to use it to blow dust out of the laptop through the vents and holes in it. If it does not work, then you'll need to actually open the laptop and undust it using the compr-air that way.

During games my laptop CPU heats up to 80-85C according to Speedfan and I8kfanGUI, and up to 95-100 according to Real Temp. How dangerous is it and does it mean that something's wrong with my laptop or that it simply can't handle heavy games?
Also, which program is correct? When not playing, the temperature is around 50-55 (Speedfan and I8kfanGUI) and 65-70 (Real Temp).
I've got Dell Studio 1735 (intel core 2 duo, ATI mobility radeon HD 3650) with Vista home basic and all drivers have just been updated.

Thanks in advance!

My system is overheating and causing problems. The system generates a lot of heat as it has a quad core, four hard drives set up as a RAID and two ATI HD3800 cross fire cards. Space is relatively limited and I currently have Two 120mm fans blowing on the motherboard, one case fan blowing air into the sytem and stock fans on the video cards. Recently I've taken the side off and aimed a fan at it to keep the heat down. Any suggestions as to how to get the temperature down? I'd like to put the side of the case back on.

Thanks!

A:CPU Overheating problem

Just a question about thermal paste and fans:

How many fans in your case? 3 ? 4 ? (Not counting Video Card fans) 1CPU, 2 Case?

Also how big are the case fans, and are they turned up ? Do any of the fans make noise? (Could not be performing at maximum rates)

for your CPU fan is it also running optimally(no noise, fully cleaned out, not bent)?

What brand is the thermal paste that you bought ?? and how did you apply it? an even thin layer enough to cover the chip fully but not too much so that it's overflowing on it?

Edit: Also forgot to ask, have you checked the Motherboard Chips to see if they are overheating? I've seen that a lot but you said that your temp. monitor programs say it is for sure the CPU so.

Hi thanks for any advice in advance... I hope
My computer overheats quite easy. I noticed this being bored having my temp monitor running while switching through webpages really fast and it went from 50 (average temp) to about 70. My computer also shuts off during games (crysis, bioshock...) and that’s a little irritating.

I have about 3 fans excluding CPU and the PSU. I have 1 on the side for the CPU (air blows in), 1 on the front, and 1 on the back. I am pretty confused why this is happening. Also its a pretty cheapo case...it was my first time putting together a pc...but any help onto fixing this is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hello, I built my own computer about 3 years ago. A few days back it started shutting down by itself and I dont mean the windows shutdown. It just shuts off like theres no power. i've just started troubleshooting it but I dont understand whats wrong.

I downloaded this utility called SpeedFan and it showed me the core temp around 60 deg C. As far as I know, thats quite hot and maybe thats shutting it down. I changed the heatsink and even the compound between the sink and the CPU. Its got three 80mm fans inside and one 120mm fan cooling the SMPS.

Any other ideas?

System specs are,

Asus M2R32-MVP motherboard
2 GB DDR2 667 MHz SDRAM

Do a search here or at the web of the manufacturer of your Bios, Award ,etc. for the beep code error messages meaning.
Before you turn your machine on again ,you might want to try and figure out why it overheated in the first place.It only takes seconds to fry a CPU.

In all honesty if there is not a large ammount of dust, and you are running a cooler pad. I would contact the manufacturer. They may have seen the issue before, or you may have a fan or sensor that has gone bad. Start with them, and see what they have to say, then let us know

A:Brand new PC, overheating problem

That sounds too hot, make sure your CPU HSF is mounted properly and that you haven't applied too much thermal paste.

I wanted to post my experience in case others are having the same problem I have a Dell Latitude D with the Quadro NVS M graphics card I have been running Windows bit since the beta started I switched to RC when it came out again bit I just last week installed the bit RTM professional code Since installing the RTM code my system has shutdown three days in a row due to overheating This did not happen in Beta or RC This was a clean install Technically I guess it was a clean upgrade from a clean RC install What I have found out so far is that at some point during the day svchost exe freaks out and starts eating up RTM Windows Problem Overheating 7 of the CPU This causes the Windows 7 RTM Overheating Problem CPU to heat up and eventually overheats My fans are working fine I tested them using Dell Diagnostics I do need to blow out my system which will help However the root cause is svchost exe freaking out and running constantly The first two times it overheated it happened while I was away from my computer I came back to my desk and it would not come out of sleep Well I thought it was sleeping but it was dead I had to power it off and back on then I saw the error message about overheating The third day I noticed Windows running slower then the fans switched from low to high So I started looking at the Task Manager and found svchost exe going wild Then it shutdown before I had time to troubleshoot more I downloaded SpeedFan to monitor temperatures and Process Explorer to see more information Day four svchost exe freaked out again and I could see my CPU cores heating up I checked Process Explorer and Smart Card SCardSrv service appears to be the culprit I tried killing that thread both in Process Explorer and by stopping the SmartCard service and both failed So I rebooted before it overheated and all was well after the reboot I do not yet know the root cause or the exact trigger for scardsrv dll freaking out I do not use Smart Cards so I will likely try disabling that service and see if the CPU utilization problem and eventual overheating goes away If I find out any more I will post back here Hopefully this helps someone else Jamie

A:Windows 7 RTM Overheating Problem

I did some more testing this morning and I have two updates.

The trigger is for the svchost.exe / scardsrv.dll cpu utilization problem is to sleep the computer twice in a row. I can reproduce this by...

1. Fresh boot.
2. Log in.
3. Wait for things to calm down.
4. Sleep the laptop.
5. Wait a minute.
6. Wake it up.
7. Wait a minute for things to calm down.
8. Sleep the laptop a second time.
9. Wake it up.
10. Wait a few seconds and svhost.exe goes to 50%. Then confirm with ProcessExplorer that it is Smart Card (SCardSrv) thread causing the problem.

This explains why the overheating happens late in the work day for me. It takes coming out of sleep two times for it to happen then time for it to run the CPU cores till they get too hot.

The second update is that disabling the Smart Card service does prevent this problem.

I suppose if I wasn't too busy or had a spare D620 I would try this on a totally clean system with no 3rd party software. Then if it still happened I would try the 32bit version. I think for now I'm sticking with the disabled Smart Card service.

I posted this as a overheating problem, though others might first see this as a performance problem, or CPU ultilization problem depending on how quickly you catch the problem or how good your cooling system is.

Anyways, hopefully this helps someone else.

Hi guys, first of all sorry if my english is bad it's not my native one.
Then to go to the problem...in the last couple days out of nowhere overheating on my cpu and gpu appeared...i have an "AMD X2 [email protected] GHZ" and "Nvidia GeForce [email protected] MB".And as for the GPU the 70+,80 temperature is normal while i'm playing games for the CPU 70+is a little bit too high i think.So i opened the pc and cleaned the fans of both the cpu and gpu and on the top of that i have a fan that is especially to cool the video card.Now both cores at idle are about 22/21 and CPU @ idle is 43 degrees.So any idea if this overheating of the CPU mostly is dangerous and should i be worried about or i'm just paranoic lol..

When i bought my laptop the fan never kicked on, but after i started doing video encoding, it started staying on even if it was doing nothing but being on, and when i play some games, even old ones, the computer will shut itself off to prevent cpu damage, i suspect that it has to do with the heatsink being dusty, seeing as me and my roomate are both smokers, so if anyone has any ideas, i would be very appreciative,

Also, i messed up my headphone jack a while back and now it doesn't really work, so if anyone has any ideas or tips for either problem i'd really appreciate it
here are my system specs

Emachines M6807
Mobile Athlon 64 3000+
512 MB RAM
60 GB HD
ATI Radeon 9600 w/64 mb ram
2.4x dual format DVD burner
 

A:Problem with laptop overheating

You never mention how old the machine is, or whether it is under warranty or not.

If the option exists, send it in for service.

If not an option, are you willing to disassemble it ?

A:Not you normal overheating problem...

Anyone? its still happening and i have tried absolutly everything, apart from throwing the CPU across the room (close though)...

When playing the game i have a fear that it will lock up each time it freezes but soon after it will jerk back into play, but this happens every 2-5 minutes, and it will always lock up at some point.

The longest ive played without lock up is 20 minutes... then i just boot my pc again and no problems until i get back into the game... its not right at all (obviously)
