Preferred Solution: CPU Overheating problem

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

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, i downloaded Hmonitor to check my motherboard temperatures, and it seems all wrong, i was told to take out the CPU and heatsink and give it a clean i did that everything is clean when i took it out it wasnt TOO hot to hold but it was hot, ive got a print screen of the program, can you guys help me with this its slowing my PC down so bad

2.4Ghz Celeron CPU
768Mb PC2700 Ram
256Mb ATI 9550GE
400W PSU

here is the screenshot of the Program: hardware TEmps any help would be apreciated 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...

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 was my first time putting together a pc...but any help onto fixing this is greatly appreciated. Thanks

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.

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

i built my pc about a year ago ive had problems with it off and on. but now i think the problem i am having now may be due to overheating for no reason itll reboot or ill get some stupid error msg and then upon reboot says some windows file is missing, Ive reinstalled windows a bunch of times due to this problem. The thing that makes me think its a heat issue is when i clean off the system with air (for some reason it gets a ton of dust) it works fine again. i havent checked temps lately but pc used to run in high 30s or low 40s if anyone can give me some ideas id be grateful . ty.

A:I think i have an overheating problem?

Where are you keeping your tower? It sounds like your only problem is with dust so finding different place to put your tower ie; from the floor to the desktop would solve your problem

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
ATI Radeon HD 4650 512 MB graphics
320 GB and 1 TB HDDs

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.

I had installed Windows Home Premium x on my Toshiba laptop several months ago and as soon as the operating system was installed I was having heat problems I figured maybe it was because I had not yet installed any drivers but even after doing so and making sure they were up to date the problem persisted I then installed Windows XP Pro x with it as a dual-boot and discovered that the Problem Overheating laptop ran perfectly fine just as it had with Vista as well Knowing that this amount of heat is not exceptionally quot healthy quot for a computer I went back to my Windows Vista Ultimate x amp Windows XP Pro x dual-boot I eventually called Toshiba about the issue and they asked if my BIOS was up to date I told them which version I had and they said that it was up to date They advised to take it in and get it looked at which I refuse to do because it works fine in XP or Vista The heat problem I have encountered goes like this I boot my computer up and it boots up fine until it is in Windows The fan will run at a very low speed during this time and will not change When I put my hand there the air it is blowing is not that hot After minutes the fan remains at the same speed but the heat it blows out is increasingly Overheating Problem warm After minutes the air it blows is very very hot and almost painful to hold my hand close to the vent and within a few short minutes the fan changes its speed for the Overheating Problem first time since boot-up The speed it kicks into is incredibly fast the fan at this point blows faster than it had ever blown in Vista or XP still to this day it is not comparable to speeds it has blown in XP or Vista The heat is incredible After about - mins more or less the computer shuts down immediately without warning I am all out of ideas and I would really like to have Windows but I don't want a fried computer

Never mind.... I have finally found the concluding answer to this issue (good riddance), and I now run a dual-boot between Windows 7 and Windows XP. I must say, now that I am getting the chance to use Windows 7 without burning my laptop, it is definitely a huge improvement from Windows Vista.

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

I used the program Coretemp, and this is the temperature it gave me. I also have an Nvidia 8500GT if that makes any difference.
Is this normal? Can I just buy another fan and fix it?

A:Overheating problem?

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.

hi my pc has just turned itself off after overheating, i left it to cool down for about 2 hours then turned it back on and it wont start up it sometimes it plays 5 beeps, and other times it plays repeating short beeps and sometimes 1 short, 1 long beep. what is wrong

A:pc overheating problem

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.

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.

What is happening to my CPU?

A:CPU overheating problem

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.

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.

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.

Looks like the Aspire M3641 uses 250W power supply. Found specs for ED7200A & U3702A, both has 250 W PSU, so I'm guessing all M3641 uses it.

Overheating main computer for the past few weeks I have been suffering from random and frequent sudden shutdowns for no obvious reasons he computer can shutdown while idling while downloading or streaming or just while I am emailing If I try to reboot straight away it usually Overheating Problem? shuts down before reaching the desktop Generally I am having to wait at least minutes before it will boot up again Occasionally when I reboot I get a BIOS message which says that I have experienced a power surge which caused the shutdown but this does not appear every time At times these shutdowns occur within a few minutes of booting up the computer but at other times it runs fine for several hours Please note that apart from the CPU fan I have case fans fitted one rear and two front I have also run the computer within one side panel fitted So far these are the steps I have taken to try to resolve my problem but none of these have worked I run my system via a power surge protector block and initially replaced this with a new one I fitted a new power lead Although I tested my PSU and this showed no faults I replaced it with a new w EZCool PSU After none of these measures made any difference I then suspected that the CPU was overheating and installed some monitoring software to see what was going on I was quite surprised when the software reported that the CPU core was generally showing a temperature of around C when idle and around C with some applications were open A peak of C was reported when I was streaming video All these seemed quite high to me In an attempt to reduce these readings I invested in a new CPU fan an EVO Hyper which was recommended by several people on blogs that I researched However again this made no difference either to the temperatures I was seeing or to the random shutdown problem which still persists So I am now out of ideas I hope there is someone out there who can come up with something that may help solve this problem Anyone with any ideas would be very much appreciated This is my main work computer and was quite expensive as you can see from the specification Add in the new parts I have already replaced and I have quite a big investment in it and hope I can solve this problem without too much more expense nbsp

Hello about a year ago Problem Overheating the existing PSU in my aging desktop decided it had had enough and went Overheating Problem into retirement with no notice whatsoever as a result of this I was given a spare one by a friend W I can t remember what the power rating was on the original PSU anyway I have been having lockup and shutdown problems usually when doing a system security scan or anything involving lots of graphics when the PSU case gets quite hot The thing is I m not sure if this is a case of the PSU not being powerful enough or a CPU problem and since I have no other PSU to test by replacement I risk possible unnecessary expense I have monitored CPU voltage during Disk Cleanup and it only varies between V to V and on the PSU the only voltage that shows any variation is the - V line which sometimes rises to about - V However the internal case temperature rises from about c to c before the system shuts down without any warning Can anyone give any indication of whether this is a PSU or CPU problem Any help much appreciated thank you The motherboard in an NEC INTEL i version x northbridge - Intel i revision A southbridge - Intel BA ich rev A CPU - Intel R Celeron R GHz Socket uPGA Mb of RAM nbsp

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.

I have an AMD Athlon 2200XP (1800mhz) machine from Time computers. I have an MSI MS-6382 motherboard and 512MB ram. I recently upgraded to a Creative Ti4800 GFX card. 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?

Thanks in advance


A:Overheating problem (another one ;))

Sounds like one of your fans is about to pack in. You'll need to take a look inside your case with it running to see if you can find out which one is making the noise.

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.

I have a generic machine running W2000 pro and the client says that it kept shutting down by itself. I found that the cpu cooling fan was worn out so I replaced it. Here is the problem, now windows wont load I cant get any programs to run, I tried to get the seagate HD diagnostic tool to run to check the HD but it gets to 35% and quits. everything just freezes while trying to start. Is this a motherboard problem or what do I need to test next or check.

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.

I recently built a new PC based on a Gigabyte P35-DS3R E6750....

I haven't overclocked as yet.

I installed Speedfan and it shows core temps at idle of around 20c rising to 45ish on full load.

Fan 1 (CPU heatsink fan) varies from 0 RPM to 1700 depending on load,

Fan 4 is stable at around 1500 RPM.

So far, so good.. BUT from time to time Fan 1 fails to kick-in and the Core temps rise to 75/80c.

Only powering off/on solves the problem.

I have disabled the 'auto' setting in the BIOS so it now runs on full all the time which 'solves' the problem.. but I don't understand why it sometimes fails to start.

I have a acer aspire 5735z that I installed a new HDD and windows 8 on, it's all working fine except it randomly overheats and shuts down, I removed a stick of ram as it seemed to be bad anyway and it improved it somewhat, I've just put some new thermal paste on the cpu and gpu (replacing the old stuff which had worn off) which seems to help. I'm not sure how to change the fan speeds, but did clean it out.

heres my speedfan results:

HD1 - 53c
Temp1- 58c
Temp2- 57c

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

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:Overheating Problem in Laptop

You could try to find out what brand of thermal paste they used (if its a cheap poor quality one that could be the issue)
Do you have pets? Can you find any dust or hair in the area where you keep your laptop? It doesn't take a lot to clog up the heat sink making the fan next to useless.

Thanks for the help. I checked the inside of the tower and the CPU fan was stone dead. I installed a new fan/heatsink and now the temp is running normal. It no longer heats up when I scan or send a picture. I hought it would be difficult, but took about an hour.

Can someone help me with what I think is an overheating problem with a HP notebook?? I am trying to run my recovery cds in the laptop and I have done it about 10 times and it keeps shutting down at various stages thru the process, it almost finishes the first couple of times that I do it and it stops with less and less of the operation complete each time after that. I have to let it sit for 20 minutes or so and start again, but I have still been unable to get the job done???? Could something be damaged now, or could it just be cleaned?? Thank you for any suggestions of what I might be able to try.


A:Solved: Overheating problem

The first thing to do is buy a can of compressed air, and blow out the air vents (where the fan extracts). Accumulated dust can severely restrict airflow in a laptop and cause over-temperature shutdowns.

Hi Thanks for viewing Quite recently my computer started to crash in an unusual way When left for quite a while it started to turn off the power to the monitor the light goes from green to yellow as if putting it into standby mode However it can t be turned back on at all Moving the mouse or pressing the keyboard does not reactivate it I tried checking the cpu temps and they were ok I tried reseating the ram and no help One other thing is that it still seems to problem. Card GFX Overheating???? be a temperature thing because once it has crashed and been rebooted it often keeps doing it more regularly - within minutes even in safe mode Eventually i decided it was probably a GFX card problem so I took it out and now i m using the onboard GFX chip That has solveed it and it no longer crashes but I want to use my GFX card to play games and GFX Card problem. Overheating???? stuff The fan on the card still works and i wonder if the card might be upsetting the air flow over the mother board as the end of the card sits very close almost touching the ram Or perhaps its just the card itself overheating It crashes regardless of what you are running not made worse by playing games which use the card more heavily Sometimes its just running internet explorer and crashes I have AMD AS Rock Motherboard x sticks of DDR GForce ti mb Soundblaster Audigy Win Xp SP Thank for help nbsp

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

also the cpu fan doesnt increase or decrease speed. ive tried the cpu on another mobo and it was fine.

A:hibernate problem and overheating

As for running too hot, well that is a laptop issue and what is blowing out certainly can be warm. many users who use laptops heavily know they might want to look at where the fans vent on the bottom and find a way to tilt the laptop up in back to help air flow as well as never use a notebook on a bed or couch surface where it has no place to exhaust.
Hibernate is a difficult issue from pc to pc and with what you have written it sounds like hibernate is called for in the bios and in Control panel Power Options but it is hard to say why it does not work.
One thing I would suggest is you read this developer article about the differences in Power Management in Vista as sleep may be more what you are looking for anyway and it is different than XP was deliberately.

I recently installed a new PSU and video card, and now my motherboard seems to be overheating. I noticed it was over 55 celcius when practically idle, and my computer shut itself off twice. I opened the case and pointed a regular desktop fan into it, and the temp went down about 20 degrees and it worked fine.

I bought a regular case fan, and I am wondering how I should set it up. Right now the only fans are the CPU fan and the fan in the power supply. The only place to set up the case fan is at the back, right below the power supply. Obviously, the PSU fan blows out, and I set up the case fan to blow out as well. It doesn't seem to be helping the temperature at all. Right now it's at 47 celcius (it gives a warning at 50 celcius).

Should the new case fan be blowing INTO the computer instead?

A:CPU overheating. Possible thermal paste problem?

You'll want to remove it again and clean off the existing paste. High percentage (90+%) isopropyl alcohol works well and is pretty cheap. Then you'll want to apply a small amount of new paste. If you don't have any you'll have to go buy/order some. I've used Arctic Silver 5 (pretty standard 'good' paste) and Arctic Silver Cramique. I prefer AS5. Whichever brand of paste you get, it is probably worth looking up some videos on youtube on how to apply it. Different products can have different preferred application methods.

Then, you'll want to be sure the heatsink is actually secured on all sides. I had a problem once with not getting all 4 sides fastened completely on a stock intel heatsink even though at first glance it looked fine. This probably wouldn't be your problem exactly because aftermarket heatsinks often use a different method of attachment. I'm just saying this to point out you need to be completely sure it is fastened properly.

Some basic stuff: Remove the vid card and use canned air to clean it and the fan.

Did some setting in the Catalyst Control Centre get changed? (the temp limit or the fan speed setting)? Are you OCing it?

Do you have another software prog (Everest) to monitor the GPU temperature independantly to confirm it is overheating?

When is the last time you updated your mobo and video drivers?

Motherboard 38 C (100 F)
CPU 86 C (187 F)
CPU #1 / Core #1 97 C (207 F)
CPU #1 / Core #2 96 C (205 F)
GPU Diode 55 C (131 F)

Definately don't like the look of those 80's and 90's.

So what is the best thing I can do? I'm going to give it a good rest tonight, videos seem to drive the temp up a fair bit.

Already it has dropped to 76C CPU just from not doing anythign strenuous.

Does anyone have any CPU overheating issues with XPS 9550?
Since I have been experiencing BSOD issue from the day I received the machine, I wanted to test my hardware with benchmark software. I ran tests with 2 different tools, but in both of them I got a message that my CPU is overheating and the test was stopped - it reached 91-92C (after about 10 minutes of testing).
One of the software I used was Burn-it-Test (there is a free trial period) - it is very simple software.
Have anyone noticed any overheating issues with XPS 9550? Is it normal to reach such temperature with XPS 9550?
Thanks a lot.

A:Dell XPS 9550 - CPU Overheating problem

Hi XPS.15,
What is the BSOD error or the bugcheckcode? Does the system stop working or does it turn off automatically when in use? What application are you using when the bluescreens occur on the system?
Update the BIOS -
Reinstall the chipset and video drivers from the same site above or from the vendor site - for Intel and Nvidia driver.
If the issue is unresolved, then run the stress test on the system -
Keep us updated.

Hi I have Gateway MD u laptop and CPU is constantly hot It s problem overheating Weird laptop about C in idle and often shuts down under load when it s overheated It didn t use to be that way so it s not normal for sure As I m not new to computers I already thought about common causes for overheating Restricted airflow Took bottom cover off Poor contact between processor and radiator Cleaned pads and reapplied thermal grease And finally dust Cleaned fan All of it didn t help although fan is quieter now because of removed dust To be honest I didn t expect it to do a lot because of the degree of overheating I Weird laptop overheating problem attached an image to give better explanation of my problem Processor radiator is insanely hot so thermal contact with processor is good That copper thing is hot as well And now the WEIRD thing - air coming out of the went is COLD Normally it would heat up stuff just lying near the laptop but it s cold now Am I missing something Can contact between copper thing and the radiator on which fan is blowing the air be broken for the lack of better words to explain it Looks pretty solid to me Anyone has any ideas Leonty nbsp

A:Weird laptop overheating problem

Cold air coming from an otherwise hot system is a clue that maybe the heatsink fins are clogged with dust or that the processor-to-heatsink contact is not good. Yes, I know you redid the contact between the heatsink and processor; but, those are the only things that come to mind when you mention the processor is hot but the air that comes out is cold.

For about a week now I've been returning to my pc to find that it's shut itself down due to an overheating issue. I would like to narrow this down a little to find the actual cause of the problem. I built the pc myself back in August and this is the first problem I've encountered since then. I guess that's a good run I had there. But alas it has come to an end.

Any suggestions on how to narrow this overheating problem down?

A:Overheating or Temp check problem?

What you need to do I think as take off the CPU - HSF,clean off any residule Thermal Paste from the CPU..
Apply a new thin,even coat of fresh thermal paste.

Then Make sure you have a Good Working,Compatible CPU-HSF.

I would go out a buy a new one.

Install and see what happens,this will eliminate the CPU-HSF as the issue.

Hi all. Win 10 was working well on my Toshiba Satellite.(i7 4 gig ram)
Then I lost the ability to download with Cannon Camera software. This program stopped working. ( got off pictures by removing SD card and putting it direct in laptop.)

Next computer slows down and run st 55 to 60 Deg C. (air temp about 23 deg and desktop computer running at 35 deg.)

Then Blue screen telling me Video_Krnl............ failed/error.
Ran restore point and system worked again for a while(2 days).
Now I can only get 3 to 4 minutes before blue screening and failing.
Have blown out cooling fins but little to no dust as computer is only just one year old.
Regularly run AVG and Wise 365 cleaner over it.

Any suggestions about the next step would be appreciated

A:Win 10 laptop Overheating problem due to some? software.

G-day mate I have two Toshiba sat. laptops One about 3 years old the other about 9 months old both running win. 10. The older one starts acting up from over heating about every 12 months. First sign of trouble is the nvidia display driver crashes a little later 2 weeks to a month it will over heat and shut down.
The best way to clean it I found was to pull it apart take out the fan and unclog the dust and crap caught up in outlet/heatsink.
While I had it apart i drilled some more vent holes in the bottom of the Chassis.
The other more powerful lappy runs at 50c at idle and up to 79c playing games like fallout 4. Had no problems yet of it over heating but ready for it to happen.
I don't think your problem is heat related as your machine should automatically turn it self off.
Maybe A clean install of Windows 10 if you can to see if problem persists.

Hey guys I ll try to keep this short as possible I just bought a new computer Took it to my college dorm plugged it in thing works great However after a few hours of use the screen began to stutter like the frame rate would drop then it would return to normal after a few seconds This kept happening for about minutes until finally the computer froze up completely I couldn t Alt-F CtrlAltDelete or anything and had to force problem? Computer overheating up, freezing possible shutdown the computer Powered it up again same thing happened so I decided to unplug it When I grabbed the tower it was fairly hot especially above where the CPU was My college dorm is fairly warm however probably somewhere in the low s we have leaky radiators so I decided to take the PC home to my house and try it out in my basement which is Computer freezing up, possible overheating problem? probably around - degrees It ran completely smooth with no problems After several hours of running intensive resource heavy programs on it I put my hand on the computer It wasn t hot at all and the air coming out of the fan vents wasn t even warm Thinking that the problem had somehow fixed itself I took the computer up to my room which was degrees according to the thermometer and plugged it in I played it for about three hours before without any warning whatsoever the screen locked up again and I had to force shutdown the PC To me this seems like a temperature issue But I find it hard to believe that a degree difference would make the PC lock up altogether My old PC would at least blue screen and shut down when it overheated while this one simply freezes up I figured I would ask around before I started buying new and most likely the wrong parts for the PC The CPU is a AMD FX- GHz The cooling unit on the CPU is a Coolermaster Seidon m Water Cooler The GPU is a NVidia GTX TI gb GDDR OS is Windows bit GB of RAM Motherboard is a Gigabyte GA- FXA-UD Watt power supply I thought that the water cooling system would be more than enough to cool the PC with several other fans of course and when I was in my basement I checked to see if the pump activated when I powered it on which it did Is there a chance that the pump shuts off after a while and that causes the CPU to overheat What do you guys think The computer is still under warranty if it is indeed a faulty part But if this is due to a poor choice in part selection then that would be my bad Any help would be appreciated Brian nbsp

Recently after installing windows 7, my acer 5715z laptop has been randomly overheating. I've cleaned the heatsink and everything, but the problem seems to be driver- or settings related. Every now and then, the laptop fan stops spinning, causing the cpu temperature to rise until it automaticly shuts off at 100?. Weird thing is, if I put the laptop on battery power when it starts heating up, the laptop fan starts spinning again and cpu temp cools down again. I've looked everywhere in the windows 7 power settings and tried programs such as speedfan but it seems i can't control the fan speed. I've configured 'core temp' to put the laptop in sleep mode when cpu temperature rises above 80? so it doesn't just shut down instantly at 100?. I've contacted the Acer helpdesk about this but they just say to reinstall windows vista... I've updated pretty much everything except the bios. Any help?

A:Strange overheating problem in windows 7

No solutions immediately are apparent to me. So I'll get the ball rolling for's cpu usage? Behaving normally?

Could be some kind of cpu throttling gone wrong or working incorrectly. Puzzled about this one...

Maybe somebody knows something. Let's see.

I have a W541. The laptop overheats during heavy tasks, the fan doesn't seem to cope even though it's set on maximize performance in the power manager. I instaled the fan diagnostic tool but it's not being detected. What could be wrong??

A:Overheating problem fan not detected on Lenovo dia...

I have similar problem before on my X200T. The result is that the fan is not speeding as fast as expected, it makes some noise, or it stops completely after some times. My suggestion is to do a clean work on the fan and CPU paste. Otherwise, you may be like me burning the fan totally a couple of months later without noticing that there was actually some small stuffs half stucked beneith the fan. For a temperary solution, you can try show down the computer and reboot after it's cooled down. The fan may behavior normally in a short run.  Your case may be difference than mine...
