Preferred Solution: Microsoft Lumia 950 over heat issue

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.)

Hello, I've read in multiple threads online about people speaking of the Lumia 950 or 950 XL heating while charging or so, is that true? and would it usually cause a problem? And does anyone of you guys have any idea which phone heats more?
Thanks.

I have a new gateway notebook with an 1.6ghz AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-50 cpu... ive recently checked (10 mins ago) my temps inside this thing and my cpu core temp is running at 160F. an insanely high temp. is there a way to improve cooling in this thing without underclocking (im a overclocker not an underclocker) ive never seen it this hot until now...any help would be great i curently have the computer sitting on a honeywell fan to keep it cool... and im down to 110F yay! but this is no solution
 

A:HEAT HEAT HEAT Gateway heat woes

Yes, that converts to a bit over 71 degrees Centigrade... and is getting to the edge of its range... You will have earlier failure.
That model simply does not have the cooling system you need with three of four fans to move the air out.
If you have dogs or cats, clean the guts of the case with Dust Off every week... to remove the dust and hair.
But there isn't much help for you. Lower priced laptops never make good gaming machines.

This is a wierd question but...

I am using MBMonitor to check my cpu heat.

Lately it has been runing at ~62 Degrees.

So i decided to pull it out of its place, lay it down and take off the cover. After i layed it down in aproximatly 20 seconds the CPU temp went down 10 degrees to ~51. Why is this?
Could it be a faulty diode or is my cpu cooler putting to much strain on my cpu while it hangs off of it.

Thanks for all you help.

Hi, i recently bought this awesome desktop and its my 1st after many years of laptop usage...i use 3d cad apps alot and do much rendering...this takes my system temp to abt 94 degrees celsius...my processor runs at abt 4.1ghz when this happens...will a liquid cooling system work/help my rig ?...and if yes, how do i get one installed correctly ?

A:Hp 750-175 se cto heat issue

@Chux011?, welcome to the forum. You do have an awesome computer, but are correct in being concerned about the temperatures.  It would not be good to run it at those temps. I have a similar computer (HP 860-170vr) with the same motherboard and chipset.  I use it for gaming and it runs very cool under the stress of some highend games with Ultra settings.  It has liquid cooling on the processor, however. If you decide to go with liquid cooling, I suggest contacting one of the manufacturers to see if they have a system that will work with your computer. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

The problem is with a Dell optiplex SX270. When the pc is switched on after being off for a night, it restarts a couple of times untill it gets hot (very hot) you can barely touch the top of it. The strange thing is when it is hot it works fine, but when it is cold it will restart a few times. Even stranger is you can turn it off during the day untill completely cold, turn it on and it will be fine, only when off for the whole night does it do this.
 

A:Heat issue with pc

The easy and stupid solution is to keep it running all the time, the decent solution is to check and see where is the problem.

Did you get in touch with Dell customer support?What did they say?

Heat performance is an issue but I m wondering if he needs a more powerful PSU or maybe another fan inside the case Heat Issue. to help things out a little I installed mobo monitor to check what the temps are like and I wasn t too pleased By just downloading torrents the cpu temp climbed all the way to degrees but what was also strange was that task manager said the cpu use was up to almost and this was with no other processes running It seems to be a problem with the cpu fan heatsink combo Am I right to assume this nbsp

Hi, I'm on a Dell Latitude laptop right now and the heat issue is driving me crazy. The average temperature is about 60-70C, usually even going up to 80C when it's really hot. This makes it so that whenever I'm playing games on it, the computer will sacrifice speed to clock down on the temperature, and I get extremely bad lag, making it impossible for me to play at all.

Can anyone explain why my computer is so hot, and give me some suggestions as to how to fix it? Is there any possible way to stop the computer from sacrificing the speed in order to cool itself down?

Thanks in advance

BTW, the fan is always on high, yet the temperature is still very high..

A:HP dv5 heat issue

The newer HP laptops have a known overheating issue that normally takes out the wireless card first..and then continues destroy more and more of the laptop. There only solution to this is updating the bios to make the fans spin faster to compensate. Go to hp.com and find a bios update for your laptop.

I have a Dell Precision 380 and it will work for awhile and then it goes into power save mode? The screen goes black and it appears that the PC is still on but nothing works. It is located in a warehouse that gets a little warm. Confusing because when I bring it into my office, it works fine. Hooked up another PC to the location in the warehouse and it works fine so it's not the wiring. Could it be a heat issue or the fans not working properly? It's under warranty but I have received no help from Dell's tech support. Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.

I just got my new Yoga 900 laptop. Everything looks good except I find the laptop is heating very fast and consistently throughout the use of it. I feel not comfortable if putting the base on my thigh. I feel hot when touching the base around the hinge. I search the solution and though the updated BIOS should resolve the heat and fan issue. However, this does not solve my problem.  Is there anyone has this similar issue? How to solve it?

Clean the heat sink and fan with a can of compressed air and check temps. If it is still high, replace the stock cooler with an after-market cpu cooler and check temps.

When replacing a heat sink fan, I inadvertenly broke one of the plastic hold down clips which are attached to the cpu plug slot (on the mobo) I've read there are heat sink fans available which screw or bolt into the Mobo. The heat sink fan is hanging by one hold down click - seems to be cooling the CPU but am unsure if it is as effective as it could be. The specifics of the mobo and cpu are availabe at my profile. Would appreciate any advice as to how I might move forward with this mb, or should I pay my last respects?

A:AMD 64 X2 6400+ heat issue

The 6400+ is definitely a heat beast, but that 127C figure is wrong. Sounds as if your case is too small. Do you have plenty of room around the cpu cooler? Double-check the heat-sink alignment and thermal paste... remembering that too much thermal paste is as bad as too little. Thick thermal paste can act as an insulator.
Do you have a way to monitor your fan rpms?

I have a very simple question that I really need an answer to. Whenever I play games (such as Team Fortress 2, GTA 4, games from steam), my laptop becomes pretty warm. Is this normal? Will this damage my laptop? Do I need to stop playing these games? Thank you.

PS: I use Acer Aspire V5 Windows 7
 

A:Heat issue with laptop?

Hello there! I would suggest lowering some of the graphics settings of the games you play. I also suggest (if you don't do this already) to move your laptop onto a desk or a large, flat, solid surface, as playing on cloth (like a bed or carpet) would keep the heat near the laptop. You could also physically open the laptop and clear any accumulated dust in and around the heatsink / CPU, but you do have to be VERY careful about Electro-Static Discharge (when you have static electricity in your body - everyone usually does) and how you handle the circuit boards. I don't suggest doing this, but if you are willing to, look up the disassemble procedures for your laptop so you don't break anything.

If you need help determining what settings to lower so you will get better speed without much loss in how it looks, try lowering Shadows / Reflections, Anti Aliasing, Texture Filtering, Motion Blur (turning this off), and usually, if you don't know what something is, turning it off will usually give you better frame rate (in a game of course - don't turn off Traction Control in your car ). This applies to Team Fortress and any other Source Engine game. I don't know what to tell you about GTA or other games from Steam, but the same should generally apply.

If you need anything else, please ask! You're here so we can help you!
Have fun!
Oh, and Welcome to the forums!

the heatsink on that card gathers dust really fast

try cleaning it.

and i have the fans attached to flexible steel so i can aim the fans to any location needed.

i have a 80mm fan aimed in a 40 degree angle blowing at the video card.

then i have 2 other case fans one of them is aimed at the cpu heatsink (i have a fan adapter and a 80mm fan on the heatsink)

got my pc 5C cooler then with the side panel on.

Hello I seem to be having some issues with my ATI x XTX GPU I purchased about one year ago There have been two occasions when the GPU heat sink fan has refused to start The rest of the computer boots and a squeaking sound can be heard Heat and x1900 XTX issue. Fan from the non-moving fan it twitches however as if it is trying to start Turning the computer off and then on fixes this The second thing I noticed is that whenever several character models appear on screen in a certain game that I play Neverwinter Nights the FPS is reduced to about until the character models clear up This has not happened before I opened the computer up while running and gently touched the card s backside not the side with the heat sink and nearly singed my finger after about seconds It was very hot On x1900 XTX Heat and Fan issue. another note my computer has also been having some boot issues If I x1900 XTX Heat and Fan issue. turn it off go to sleep wake up in the morning and try to turn it on nothing happens I have to turn off the power from the wall outlet wait for this Zzzzzzzzzzzfop sound to happen it sounds as if the remaining electricity inside the computer is quot drained quot out of it When the power is turned off and that sound takes place everything that is plugged into the computer bearing some sort of light my optical mouse and my USB Wireless Net Adaptor stops shining The sound emanates from the PSU When I turn the power back on I can boot the computer This is random it doesn t happen every time sometimes it boots just fine without any turning on off but I d say it happens about of the time What do you think we could be talking about here A faulty PSU failing to properly deliver power to the main board without a cold restart and which also fails to deliver power to the graphics card fan sometimes A faulty main board A faulty innately over-heating GPU I am at loss This has been a relatively hot summer and I ve seen dust collect in the computer case fans the CPU fan and I assume the GPU fan Perhaps a compressed air clean out is in order nbsp

A:Odd occurence with a heat issue

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer!

Your probes you speak of are CPU=Processor NB=North Bridge chip on Motherboard and SB=South Bridge chip on motherboard and MB which is a general temp sensor on the motherboard.

The North Bridge chip usually has a heat sink on it, some even come with a cooling fan attached to them on systems designed to be over-clocked.

As you stated the NB chip is 86 degrees Celsius.

I have seen them a bit hotter than that with extreme gaming, if you are concerned about this temperature, you can mount a side fan in your tower blowing towards the north bridge chip and its heat sink, adding additional cooling fans to the case, keeping the total amp usage of your PSU output in mind would help keep things a lot cooler as well.

Depending on your heat sink type on your north bridge chip, they do sell cooling fans that can be attached to the fins.

Hello folks i return to hardware with another possible concern after fixing the issue? Drive heat dvd issue I started cleaning the computer up Drive heat issue? have school on monday so i want things checked and cleaned up before school to make sure everything is in good working reliable condition To that end i ran the usual battery updated all software ran a scan with both antivirus and antispy which turned up Drive heat issue? clean then ran memtest which was fine and now im running spinrite Only thing in spinrite im noticing is that i think the drive is running a tad bit warm I figure the usual running temp for an Drive heat issue? hd is around F instead the computer is running at F Is this somthing to be concerned over or is it just normal operation because i do realize spinrite will run the drive hard However i will say i am cleaning the chasis as well after the system maintenance is done and i think lately the cooling system has been working harder than usual so im wondering if there is just a dust bunny invasion near the vents thus prohibiting cooling which is somthing compressed air could fix But im asking really if F is a cause for concern Thanks guys nbsp

A:Case Heat Issue

what is the ambient room temp?

are all those fans configured as exhaust fans?

a fan on the top of the case is a good place because that's where the heat rises anyways.

if you have a side fan, then you should consider reversing it (make it an intake fan). this will blow cooler air towards the CPU fan which may help keep the CPU cooler.

I have the AMD 64 X2 6400+ CPU and the fan I have is your basic aluminum finned block heatsink setup. The temp goes up to 66 c and the system shuts down as set in the bios.

I am using a thermal paste.
I know it's obvious that I need a better Fan/heatsink but what kind? Space is a premium. Any suggestions.

The system is not overclocked.

I've got an annoying high pitched sound that comes from my graphics card (I think) whenever I play a game with mid-high graphics requirements. Now, I've read a bit about the subject, and have come to understand that the noise is caused by vibrations. Also, based on what I've read, it is unfixable.

My question is this. If coil whine is NOT heat related, when why does opening the side of my pc up and putting a fan on it stop the noise? Understand, this is a powerful commercial grade fan, but if there is bad coil whine coming out and I put the fan on it, it takes about a minute to stop.

I'm really just trying to understand this issue properly, so I can begin to work out a solution.
Right now the best one is: keep a big *** fan blowing on it.

Any thoughts?

I have sprayed out the fan ports, removed the pcmia slot holder, going to check the bios in a min for the auto speed fan setting (but i can't see the rpm of the fan anyway).

ok checked the bios no settings in there for the fan.

any other ideas?

Thats around the 70C mark, not bad for a laptop i would have thought. If your concerned about it get a laptop cooler, but i would say that temp is not too toasty lol.

I purchased a new computer around march and I have been having a problem with video lag. Originally with the system, (P4 3.2 478 socket, 512mb ram, 80gig HDD, radeon 9800 pro) I had a geforce 4 mx 4000. When running some games, ie: Battlefield 1942 after perhaps 5 minutes of play it would start to lag... heavily! So to fix this problem I bought a Radeon 9800 Pro. Same problem, it also happened on Battlefield 2, and some other games like Rise of Nations. Strangely though, when playing Call of Duty or Warcraft three, even under some intense action everything runs fine, even Half-Life 2 and Farcry ran well! Just wondering what you think the problem might be!? Thanks in advance

Taking the hs/fan off to clean and reapply the grease is a good idea-

- but, it would be even better to upgrade the pair while you have 'em off.
You may know already but ensure the heatsink is free of dust and other matter. Make sure the fan is running up to speed and is clean also.
You may also check and see if there is something that's running in the background using the CPU and causing it to warm up.

hi Sriharshahonne,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
When you power up the machine, can you observe the temps of the CPU/GPU by using HWInfo / HWmonitor or similar utility while the unit is idle and under load (normal temps should be between 50C-70C on light to medium load @ 24C-28C room temperature). However, if the CPU and GPU are fully stressed, the temps will hit around 80C-90C
 
Check this Lenovo U41-70 review
 - Link to picture (temp readings using HWInfo)
 
if the temp. is too hot and you feel uncomfortable & can barely use the unit on your lap then you may want to consider contacting the lenovo helpdesk to report the issue or the place of purchase (if it's still possible to exchange the unit).

I am working on my brothers DELL laptop. It has been on all day and I have been using it most of this time. I just picked it up and it is quite warm at the bottom, the base of the laptop? Is this normal.

I tried to run AIDA and check the temps under Computer>Sensor but nothing comes up. Any ideas or suggestions?

Alright I need some advice on this one I was running Unreal Tournament this evening and my Video Ceased, Heat (PIC) Driver Issue? video driver nv disp dll stopped working for some reason unknown to me Anyways I had been playing the game for maybe min and everything was running smooth until everything went black and I was thrown onto a really ugly desktop with an error message The message basically told me that Video Driver Ceased, Heat Issue? (PIC) the driver stopped duh and that I needed to reboot the machine I ve attached a pic of what my desktop looked like after the driver failed I didn t get a blue screen so no minidump but I was prompted with a serious error pop up box when Windows restarted Do you guys think this is just a faulty driver or could it be heat related I did NOT have my VGA fans running at Video Driver Ceased, Heat Issue? (PIC) full speed so maybe all the power finally caught up with the cards Here are my current specs XFX GT XXX - in SLi ForceWare version WHQL As you can see in the pic the CPU temps were fine and the quot CHASSIS quot indicator is actually the speed of one of the GPU cooling fans I can usually find a solution to my own display issues but this is one of the most hardcore problems yet I hope someone will be able to help me out Thanks in advance for any input nbsp

A:Video Driver Ceased, Heat Issue? (PIC)

try running the fans at full speed or if there is an automatic setting set to that it may fix the problem. it does look like a heat issue to me.

My laptop is a Compaq Presario F504EA. I have had an external 19" LCD Monitor running sometimes in parallel and sometimes independantly with the laptop. It has its own Power supply, and is only connected to the laptop through a VGA cable.

I was wondering if this could cause the laptop to extremely overheat. With this, the laptop would be un touchable on the bottom side due to extreme heat.

I had also recently upgraded my ram from 1 to 2GB. Would this of had an effect on the heat aswell ?

It is currently in repair due to my keyboard being intermittent along with my wireless; i believe the heat as melted joints or something on the motherboard.

Thanks
Oliver

A:External Monitor, extreme heat issue

when was the last time you spray dusted the laptop, that should help the heat issue. but adding more ram should not cause any more than normal heat, the extra monitor might cause more heat cause of the extra power going through the video card, but it should not make it untouchable.

i would try to spray dust the vents and also check to make sure all the fans are working.

Hello everyone Recently my mom sweet as she is told me that her computer wont turn on She usually leaves her computer running but let me know after it broke that it has been mentioning on its case temp monitor that the computer has been getting hot and the light would turn red She said she 'tried' stumped: Computer I'm heat won't issue turn on, to turn it off when she saw the warning but never told me about it until now I poked around inside and found that the computer wont turn on at all but there is a green light on the motherboard if the computer is plugged in Also the fan on the heat sink for the CPU wasn't spinning because the fan seems to have tilted in its craddle and now wont budge Perhaps it melted into that position My guess is the CPU is fried but after I plugged the computer in I put my head close to the motherboard and heard a faint noise coming from the PSU and I'm not sure if that is normal don't forget the green light on the motherboard was lit Let me check on the specs and I'll give it a post in a minute thanks in advance for your welcome suggestions

A:I'm stumped: Computer won't turn on, heat issue

I threw the CPU fan away in anticipation of getting a new one.

It is a P5NT-Deluxe (775 Socket) and the PSU is a LSP Ultra 750W ATX Power Supply. These parts are all less than 3 years old, and it has an Nvidia Evga Geforce GTX 280 GPU. I had set the computer a while ago on power saving mode because my mother doesn't game

Any guesses as to what I should do? I don't have much I can swap for to test if something went bad or not. Do you think the board could have fried if the CPU fried on top of it? Do you think I need a new PSU?

A:How do I unlock my Microsoft Lumia 640 screen lock?

You will have to reset your phone and loose whatever data is not backed up.
Power off. Hold Volume Down and tap Power. When the exclamation screen (!) appears release Volume Down.
Now tap Volume Up / Volume Down / Power / Volume Up...
The spinning gears will show and your phone will reset.
Unless you remember the password it is all you can do.

My Microsoft lumia 535 phone now charges very slowly. Also, the Microsoft phone charger that came with it has stopped charging it (the charger is still working fine because i have tested it on other phones). Recently i have been left with no choice but charge it with a samsung ipad charger or i use a USB cord to connect to my desktop or laptop, though not all USB cord is working with it. Also now selective with USB cords.
The problem started after my phone battery completely drained out flat. Since then, charging my phone has been an uphill task.

Previously used this phone with Zune on my now-deceased PC with Windows XP (although even that took a while to establish). Now have an HP laptop with Windows 7 but Zune consistently refuses to recognize it and just comes up with the usual 'disconnect, turn off and reconnect'. I have downloaded both Microsoft Fixes and neither of them find anything wrong; I have uninstalled/reinstalled countless times; I have been into my certificates and made changes and/or deletions - and I m now simply running out of options ...and patience if I'm honest.

Almost all the internet advice suggests the fix is easy. Would the fact I've worked on this for over a month now suggest I am a one-off?!!!

A Google search revealed that there are many people who have had the same problem still unresolved after two years or so - just as often with other Windows Phones rather than Nokia. Can anyone help please?
