How to Protect PC from Overheating?


Laptop over heating which is also known as Thermal Overload.This is mainly due to excess usage of CPU(More than 60%) for a long time.


To check CPU usage Right click on Task Bar>Select Start Task Manager>Performance.

or

Shortcut Ctrl+Shift+Esc

If your CPU usage is more than 50% you need to close some applications which are using 20++% CPU.
To check application which are using 20++% CPU
Right click on Task Bar>Select Start Task Manager> Processes
Search in this dialog box for programs which are using 30++% CPU
Have a look.......hjlava_3.jpg






You need to close this application to prevent PC from over heating.Actually %age usage indicates load to CPU by the application.If load is to much CPU is to processes at faster speed which in turn increases temperature of CPU.

To close the program select the program,and select End Process.



If didn't found any program using 30++% CPU in this dialog box.
Select Show process from all users. and search in this dialog box and close the program.

Caution:some times your system also uses 30++% CPU inn some processes like anti virus scanning,at this if you closed the program your PC may shutdown.At this time you need to restart the PC.

This usually happens for out dated anti virus or incompatible programs.

There are some other factors like Graphics Properties and Graphic Memory,Display size, Processor type,etc.At this time its better top use a cooling pad.




Some program like camera drivers,Simulation softwares,games uses 50+% CPU.This is common these programs need to process large amount of data at short interval time which increases CPU usage but this is normal.


The processors properties are tested at 140*c so no need to worry.If the CPU exceeds the limited temperature PC will shuts down automatically,and after cooling you need to start the PC.
Thank you...:)

ANY SUGGESTIONS...?

Memory full while i'm browsing


before this happens open task manager (press ctrl alt delete simultaneously).
under performance tab see cpu usage and memory.
cpu usage should be about 2% normally.
memory should not be full.

if cpu usage seems high then a virus is trying this act or you have unwanted programs which you my end from startup.

second case is of some problem in ram

My computer is being hanging


Goto Strart and then Run
write "msconfig" inside Run tab and press 'enter'
inside the 'Sys config utility' window click on 'startup' tab then uncheck all the applications except your current antivirus and press apply then 'ok' and then 'exit without restart' option.

Now right click My Computer and go to properties tab.
click 'Advanced' tab then under performance menu click on 'settings'
goto 'Advanced' click on 'change' and increase your virtual memory to 2048 in both spaces.
now restart windows.

To quickly restart windows press CNTRL+ALt+DEL
inside task manager you will find all the open applications .
right click on each applicaion and click on end process tree then ok

Close all your apps like this and you will find your windows a lot faster and now you can reboot or turn off your windows as usual from start button.



There are many things that might cause your PC to run slowly. It could be a fragmented disk; fragmented registry; a virus, trojan, or spyware; high CPU and/or utilization due to too many programs running; high disk I/O; or something else.

To check your CPU and memory utilization, run Task Manager. You can start Task Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and then clicking on the Task Manager button. In Task manager, click on the Performance tab and check CPU Usage and PF Usage. PF Usage is an indicator of memory usage. If one or both of these is high, click on the Processes tab, and sort the columns by CPU or Memory to see what processes are consuming the resource. If you are not sure what the process "Image name" is for, google the name and you should find what the process is for.

If your CPU and memory usage are reasonable, then you may have a different issue. Even if you running anti-virus software, it may be beneficial to scan your PC with another scanner to check for viruses. No anti-virus software is 100% perfect at catching everything. Here are a few good free online virus scanners that you can run to check your PC:

Why is my computer overheating only after 10 minutes


There are several possible causes - these are the 3 most common:

1. The fan is broken - can you hear it running?
2. You are running too much background software

Open "Task Manager" and select the "Performance" tab. If the CPU usage is constantly at a high level (80-100%) you may have too many background applications running. Next click on the "Performance" tab and look at the CPU column. See which processes are using lots of CPU power.

3. You have a virus/malware. Reboot in safe mode and run a virus scanner.

Seems my toshiba satellite lap-top is over heating, how do I get to the fan to clean it? Model number: psafgu-02k001 serial; x7253530q


If your fan is running OK, then it probably doesn't need cleaning.

I have a satellite A350 and it pumps out a LOT of heat but that doesn't mean it's overheating. It's more likely your CPU usage is very high, which makes it very hot.

Turn on the CPU Meter in the Windows sidebar and close all applications. Watch the CPU usage (the larger front meter) for about 20-30 seconds. If the AVERAGE level when running no other applications is over 40% or spiking up at 90 or 100% then you are probably running too much junk in the background, or you have a virus.

CPU usage very high, mouse very slow man


hi,
you haven't mentioned whether your mouse started moving after you deleted the applications..
Anyway to lower your CPU usage, you can do the following...
1. Run 'msconfig' without the inverted comas in the run dialog box. ( start--> run )
2. Select the startup tab... you can disable all application at startup to load the system faster. or you can select the application that you thing is unnecessary. this needs a restart.
3. Next try to press Ctrl, Alt , Del at the ssame time to launch the task manager. First you will be seeing the application that is running. Go to the next tab that is the Processes tab. under this you will see all the processes that is running and utilsing how much resources . Below on the status bar of that window you will see the cpu usage... Now identify the processes that has the highest memory usage... right click and select end process tree. the process will be stopped. Remember not to end the explorer.exe process. Most resources is utilised by Anti-virus softwares like norton, also by web-browsing and graphics opertaions....

hope to get rated as fixya!!

regards
bzoy..

CPU usage is 100% !!


Hey there yasser_81,

So it was just a random spike in CPU usage? Do you remmber what you were doing at the time this occured? Were you playing any PC games, or were you just simply checking email. To be honest, this doesn't too much like a typical virus. It doesn't rule out the fact that it is.

Simple check though, if you are concerned of it being one, is use a quick check with TrendMicro.

go to, http://housecall65.trendmicro.com/

What this is, is a simple, applet based virus scanner that will check your PC of any infected files, and also attempt to remove them.

If it does in fact find some malware/greyware/worm virus, then you may safetly assume that, that's what caused the issue.

If it did not, it may otherwise have been just your computer not dealing well with opening/closing of applications so quickly.

If these steps do not help, respond back please with what you were doing at the time, and also how much memory does your laptop have.
