    my laptop with same model has a temperature that is very hot. what is the problem? and what are the effects of it?

  • Sudhamshu Chandra Mar 04, 2009

    Hey, I also got the same model and it is really frying. But my laptop never beat 90. So nice to hear some one whose laptop has beaten that mark. of course, it crosses 80 mark only on a minimum of two hours of gaming. But the normal temperature of CPU itself will be around 65 and 70. HDD runs on 45 to 60.

    Note: All temperatures indicated are in centigrade degrees only.

    I have the same model but mine has AMD Turion X2 dualcore 2.2 GHz as opposed to Athlon 64 X2 listed here.  The CPU normally runs at 60-70 Celcius when browsing the internet, but often go very high to 85-95 Celcius when playing intense games like call of duty 4. The GPU surprisingly remains constant at around 72 Celcius, eventhough it is still quite hot.  I wonder if these temperature is normal. Because it is trully very very hot and no cooling pad can help so far. I'm worried that running this for a long time will damage the cpu, and the motherboard.

GPU cooling problem

Try reinstalling the heat sink and putty on GPU. Make sure heat sink is fitting correctly. If the only thing you did was upgrade the fans and redo the putty, then your heat sink didn't seat properly.

Acer Aspire Z5610 shuts downs

if you right click on "my computer" and click on manage, the console that opens has an option to look at the windows event viewer. if you look there, are there any errors reporting the shutdown (look in application and system logs) Otherwise you might be right in diagnosing the heating problem -> try to vacuum out the dust from the grid that sucks in the air -> if this doesn't help it may be time to replace the fan...

Laptop overheatig

Yes! the temperature is running to high probably due to much dirt build up in the heatsink ports and cooling fan, this needs to be serviced asp because the risk to the processor ic is high.

What would cause my aspire 5630 to shut down sporadically?

Shut down sporadically, caused by rising temperatures on the processor (processor overheat). Processor overheat, caused by damage to the processor fan. Processor fan function to reduce the processor temperature.

Possibilities and solutions
1. The possibility of sluggish processor fan. Processor fan spins, with a low speed, so it can not reduce the processor temperature.
Solution: clean the processor fan with a vacuum cleaner, or replace the processor fan.
2. The possibility of fan processor die.
Solution: replace the processor fan.

The characteristics of damage to the processor fan
After the laptop is turned off (more than 1 hour), the laptop can turn on and survive + - 30 minutes. In the period of + - 30 minutes, the laptop died suddenly, because the processor temperature exceeds safe limits (shut down temperature).

How to check
Laptop is turned off (more than 1 hour), then turn on. Download and install software to check the processor temperature. Ex. Real Temp 3.60. See the change in temperature. If the temperature continues to rise, it can certainly cause damage to the processor fan.
- Normal temperature, when first turned on + - 38oC
- Normal temperature, after turn on for hours 40oC - 45oC
- Temperature overheat processor, when first turned on 60oC - 65oC

I have acer 4530, and it's going mad, my laptop temperature reach 90 -100 degree. it's going burn, please help...thx

Hi neo nietzsch...
Sounds like your cooling fan is faulty...
You need to try and blow the dust out of it using compressed air, by blowing air into the exaust of the laptop and hopefully this will clear your fan of dust and make your laptop run cooler.
If that does not solve the problem then your going to have to take your laptop apart and replace the cooling fan as it is defective.
Please take time to rate me

My acer laptop keeps switching itself off , and gets warm underneath , you can hear the fan working but still gets really warm, then switches off

That would be an overheat event. Spray some compressed air in the vents underneath, especially ones with fans, and most importantly the CPU fan.
If the problem persists, make sure your room temperature isn't extremely high (100+) or lay off of CPU/GPU heavy applications.

My acer aspire 8930 9600m gt gpu keeps overheating what is the problem

Gaming (and graphics application) consumes more CPU/ Processor resources and due to the heavy processing the PC (CPU & GPU) heatup. Excessive heatup beyond usual is alarming and PC shuts down by itself when the processor/ GPU temperature exceeds the safe temperature limit. There are mainly two reasons for heatup.
Laptop heating issue generally occurs due to fan failure, which may damage the system, if not checked properly. Another most likely cause of overheating is the dust present inside the laptop, which clogs the fan and heatsink.
1. Make sure the fan is running. (if not it needs replacement)
2. Clean the fan and heat sink (thermal module). Click here for laptop disassembly instructions and refer to
Removing the System Fan/Thermal Module after removing the outer cover. Take out the fan and heat sink. clean them with the help of tooth brush and put it back. Also, repair manual can be searched online or downloaded for referrence.
The procedure is very simple, but if you are not comfortable with working inside electronics, I suggest that you should get you laptop checked by a professional for servicing (if required). I believe immediate action is required to prevent any damage to your machine and data.

Hope it Helps! Let me know if i could be of any further assistance.

Hi, I have a strange problem ASUS X70IO laptop. CPU core Duo T6500, Ram 4Gb, and an nvida GEFORCE GT 120M 1gb. The Problem is that sometimes (randomly) my monitor became black with strange colored...

This is definitely a display issue ,going black could be the inverter or cable, as you are getting vertical line, it seems you need to change the display.It seems the heat produced by the video card in your system is too high if the cooling is not enough it might give you this problem due to over heating. Maximum GPU Temperature (in C) 105 C for nvida GEFORCE GT 120M.

The screen resolution for your laptop is WXGA++(1600 x 900) which is 17",for this kind of display I would say display nothing less than 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 is high defination (HD) display.

The GRAPHICS card you have in the system it has

  • Maximum Digital Resolution 2560x1600
  • Maximum VGA Resolution 2048x1536
  • Maximum GPU Temperature (in C) 105 C
  • Maximum Graphics Card Power (W) 50 W
Try to decrease the hardware acceleration of the video card and check how it works.Other wise replace the display.

My laptop automatically shut down

Hi, another reason for this besides corrupted registry mightbe heat. Do youknow that Acer 4530 runs really hot. Some people in this same site reported that their 4530s are touching a near 90 and 100 centigrade. To be sure that heat is the problem, install SiSoft sandra or Notebook Hardware Control software on your laptop, run it in parallel with the game. After ten or fifteen minutes, minimize the game and check the temperature of CPU and HDD. Both of them display in the notification area itself.
Temperatures of >100C for CPU and >70C for HDD make the system crash and restart.

Once you know for sure temperature is the problem, you can take steps to prevent it. For example, give breathing space to the CPU. The CPU and HDD fans are locvated below the laptop. So make sure that air goes freely below the laptop when you work on it. There are so many laptop coolers available in the market.

My 4530 never crossed 90C although I once saw it making 85 degrees centigrade. Install the latest versions of nVidia drivers. That also might have been the cause.

High temperature CPU!

NEVER not use your laptop on a flat surface. Buy something to prop it up with. Then get a small fan and sit it by the laptop. This should help. This laptop breathes from the bottom.
