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...:)

Hi. Have Dell Xps i7 processor in (C:/ Drive 11 GB free space) and some time going very slow (page opening) & showing popups (Low Memory) like 1MB.. once I did Disk refrigerant after that solve problem but...


Given the info provided and the general performance problem, a couple of things you could try are:

1. Search for and remove malware
2. Remove unwanted software that have been installed in soft stealth mode
3. Identify high-resource app and disable/remove it

In the same order, here are guidelines on how to do each:

1. Malware Removal

Download on-demand scanners.
Update your regular antivirus program.
Disconnect from the Internet and reboot in Safe mode
Install and run the on-demand scanners
Run a full scan of your regular antivirus program.

There are any number of web sites that offer detailed instructions on the above process. Two reliable ones are:

How to Remove Malware From Your Windows PC
How to easily clean an infected computer Malware Removal Guide

2. Remove Unwanted Software

i. Click on Start, Control Panel, then on Uninstall a Program
ii. Scan through the list of installed software for suspicious looking programs. If in doubt, google the name of the program to understand its purpose.
iii. If you identify any unwanted program, right-click on it and select Uninstall/Change.
iv. When done uninstalling, simply close the Program Uninstall utility.
Usually a reboot is not necessary, but if the program publisher indicates that one is necessary, you should do so.

3. Identify High-Resource Apps

Here you run the Task Manager to identify apps that are unusually high CPU and/or memory users as well as being software that you are not aware of or don't usually use. Sometimes, it could be a legit app but is suffering a conflict with some other app, and causing the performance degradation. If both conflicting apps are legit, you could try uninstalling and re-installing them.

To run Task Manager, right-click anywhere on empty space in the Task Bar, then select Start Task Manager. Click on the Processes tab to see individual apps, their CPU and memory usage. Click on the CPU column-header to re-order the apps by CPU usage, then on Memory for memory usage.

My Intel D945PVS motherboard has become very slow. I tried to add memory (4g) but no help. I think it could be the motherboard or cpu. I see the cpu running at 100% a lot of time. Can you help.


I will suggest to see running processes. It will show you what processes are running and which uses more memory (also cpu usage). It might be some virus or unwanted program.

Slow running of window vista


There are many things that might cause your PC to run slowly or restart at time and then. It could be a fragmented disk; fragmented registry; a virus, Trojan, or spy ware; 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. Here is a few good virus scanners that you can run to check your PC:

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

I had to replace the motherboard, now have problems with XP


A few hints where to start looking:
  • Open the Task Manager, switch to the Performance tab and check the CPU load. If you see a constant high CPU usage, switch to the Processes tab and check which process causes the high CPU load (column "CPU").
    Also check the memory usage graph on the Performance tab. Memory usage should be low, let's say around 400MB if not many programs are running.
    In the "Physical Memory" section, check the Total value. It should (approximately) show the amount of memory actually installed.
  • Open the Device Manager (Control Panel --> System --> Hardware tab --> Device Manager).
    If error icons are displayed, try to reinstall the drivers for these devices (download the latest versions from the manufacturer's website, if possible)
  • Open the Event Viewer (Control Panel --> Administrative Tools --> Computer Management --> Event Viewer) . Check all logs for errors and warnings. Try to understand and to solve the problems. Especially pay attention to those that did not occur before the time that you changed the motherboard.

DVD BURNING : TAKES TOO MUCH TIME AND CPU USAGE GOES TO 60%


Based on the laptop model you have listed, I am afraid to say that there is not much that you can do about the time it takes to burn DVDs. Computers often come with re-writeable (RW) drives that have different speeds. Thus, on older laptops or desktops, the drives are very often slow and will take a large amount of time to burn a full DVD. As for the CPU usage, writing data from a hard drive to a DVD or a CD is a very memory and performance heavy task, especially on older computers. You can attempt to free up resources by closing as many non-essential programs as possible prior to burning a DVD... but that will not dramatically increase the speed. Not using the laptop for other purposes while it is burning a disc may also speed up the process.
