PC hot temperature reading on speedfan software

Do you know anything of the Speedfan software download?

i recently downloaded it and temp reading #3 reads 128 degrees celcius this worries me mildly. if you know what temp #3 is in this software could you let me know wut it is reading?

should i be worried in the first place?

keep in mind that this software reads temps in the pc and one of them (#3) read 128 degrees celcius!

this was a free download that i thought may be useful. and a high temp reading worried me. if you think you have any comment in the least, could i please hear it.

This temp is normal...not anything to worry about this..
it is serious if it goes above 180 degree...
even if reaches 150 mark the replacement of the heat absorbing PASTE in-between the processor and the heat sink will solve this for you

thankyou

Hopefully you fixed anything you had to by this time since the posting ,but just in case .It might be a good thing just to remove this program from your pc if the site where you downloaded the software also has things for sale that can help fix the heating problem for you. Many of these sites will have the free download give false info so the consumer buys their product .which by the way comes with some additional software which cancels out the thing that trigger the heat reading in the first place. So all you end up paying for is a driver that removes part of the free download.so the warning wont pop up anymore.

I hope this helps many consumers as this is the same thing many companies do especially many of the free antivirus programs on the web that miraculously finds a billion things wrong with your pc in about 30 seconds.Then want to sell you the full version that cant remove these imaginatory viruses and worms which in many cases are programs you purposely downloaded anyway that contain some kind of ads.

Hello,
Can you identify that #3 which read 128 degree celius?

However, you can identify what parts is overheating by going open the cpu of the pc and then switch on and touch those you suspected parts.

however, on the other hand, thats maybe a software bugs because if you really convinced that your system is very functional then you have to stay to it.

Laptop is turning off by itself.


Hi.

If your computer turns off after idling for a while, then check power saving settings, accessible from control panel.

If laptop turns off while you are using it, try first reinstalling the system to exclude system problems, or test the laptop starting OS from CD or staying in Bios settings mode, so to exclude installed system.

If laptop is still shutting down, then problem may be overheating.

Overheating usually happens when the fan is not coming , therefore when the computer overheats.Or the fan is not cooling enough and computer is overheating.

Monitor computer temperature using a software, check if Fan is coming up when temperature gets critical.

If fan comes up but does not cool enough, then replace the fan, it is not efficient anymore because of a bad bearing or dust. ~Also ensure that fan is well mounted, if fan has poor contact with CPU surface , cooling will be poor.

If fan does not come up, and critical temp is not detected, then the sensor on motherboard is bad, this is very uncommon. When this happens the problem is usually related to system or power settiings , rather than overheating.

If fan does not come up and temp is critical, then fan is faulty, replace it.

There are also more than one fan on many laptops, check that one of the fans (CPU fan, video fan) is not completely ded, and therefore cause for the problem.

By using the software below you can also find out if the problem is really overheating. If temperature results within normal range, then usually it is not overheating.In that case test systtem and check power saving settings.

Here is the software to control your fan and temp. sensor state:

My leptop acer aspire 4732z , my leptop is more heaving and very slow and auto shutdown ,and hardisk more heating plz solve my problem


Hi,

Most likely the machine is overheating, it could be the fan is not running normally but just to make sure if its hardware or software I suggest try to diagnose your machine and you can try this steps.

1. Follow this link to download Speedfan: http://www.almico.com/speedfan443.exe
2. Open and install Speedfan.
3. Launch Speedfan (this usually takes at least a minute to start).
4. Observe the temperature readings you receive. If your temperature readings are above 60 degrees Celsius or higher, especially when the computer is idling, then your laptop is running too hot. If your laptop temperature is below 60 Celsius, then leave Speedfan running and check on it periodically to see if the laptop is heating up (whether idling or in use).

If you are sure your laptop is overheating, then there are a few stopgap measures that you can employ:
1. Place the laptop on top of a cookie sheet.
2. Place laptop on edge of table so that the air vents on the bottom of the laptop are not being blocked.
3. Use a standing fan and turn it directly on the laptop.

Ways to fix laptop from overheating:
Follow this link for pictures and text explaining the next several steps. http://www.insidemylaptop.com/disassemble-acer-aspire-5610z-laptop/
(The laptop model used in these pictures isn't exactly the same as yours but it should be close. Don't worry, this process isn't that difficult, and you won't have to go any farther than removing the cooling fan.)

1. Turn off laptop, unplug laptop, and remove the battery.
2. Unscrew all panels on the back of the laptop.
3. Remove RAM, Hard drive, and cooling fan by following steps 1-8 on the linked website. Skip removing the DVD drive (step 6).
4. Using compressed air, a vacuum cleaner, or an air pump, blow air into the now open compartments in the back of the laptop.
5. Blow out the dust and dirt in the cooling fan.
6. Reassemble and turn on laptop.
7. Run Speedfan and monitor your temperature.

If your laptop is still running hot, then either employ the stopgap measures or take the laptop to a laptop technician. The laptop technician can take your laptop completely apart, reapply thermal grease to the CPU heatsink, and blow out more dust and dirt.

Good luck, thanks for using FixYa.

My toshiba a300 is very fast hot what is the problem?


It sounds as if the fan maybe malfunctioning in your pc. Download speedfan from here:

http://download.cnet.com/SpeedFan/3000-2094_4-10067444.html

After install it should register the fans and temperature sensors in your pc. If any of those temperatures are over 60 degrees centigrade then they are getting high. Over 70 degrees and there is a risk of damage to the pc. If this is the case you will probably need to look at getting the fan repaired/replaced.

Laptop getting unusually hot in operation


Re: "the FAN runs only when the booting is being done.but it stops as soon as the booting is completed".

That would be normal, as the variable speed fan comes on only when the computer is under load.

What is not normal is that the fan is not coming on when the computer overheats.Or that the fan is not cooling enough when computer is overheating.

Abit EQ Temperature Monitor


If SpeedFan is showing the correct temp for the same sensor, and that temp varies, then it's an ABit EQ bug. Frankly, I've never been impressed with the latest round of Windows software that ABit/Asus/etc. have been bundling with their motherboards. I suspect they're outsourcing the development, and the programmers are better at "pretty graphics" UI's than solid functionality.
