Over heating probelm and freezing playing Games

I have the same problems. I monitored my laptop's temp and while playing Bejewel online the temp went up all the way in the high 90's and shut itself off.

Every time I try to play a game the game freezes after a few minutes and I'm left with nothing to do then restart...

    Did the reformat not long ago ( less then 3weeks ) I'll try the cooling pad Idea didn't know that they had those ... make sense! I'm only playing 10 years old games like Doom, Heretic and Hexen I don't think it should be a problem for this computer. The laptop is getting very old anyway... Just wanted to squeeze out some more time out of it. Thanks a lot for the tips !

    Cheers

You know in 'f that would be a nice weather.. in 'c its a nice Sauna.


The heatsinks and cooling in general is very poor on this series of laptops, I would recommend you use canned air in the ventilation slots and on the fan to get all the dust out.

also you could try one of those coolings pads that go under the laptop.

few years ago I had the same issue, what I did was I opened up the laptop and on the model I had 1522wlmi, the vga adapter card (on that model) is on the front / top. I put a Processor cooler from a desktop computer there, it kept it cool. down to 50'c instead of the 120'c it used to get. I even have a picture of it somewhere.

Your machine shouldn't just freeze instantly, unless the video adapter or mainboard has already suffered some damage from overheating.

You could try reinstalling windows to the machine, with the discs that came with it or with a normal windows setup cd.

after that see if the freezeing is gone, it won't solve the overheating problem but it should get rid of the freezeing unless its a hardware problem, the machine shouldn't overheat in just few minutes. Well the cooler these models is very poor and I don't recommend these laptops to any kind of gameing unless your playing solitaire.. ofcourse...

How can I stop auto shut down?


Do you block the air flow in any way? I use a metal laptop stand that I can elevate the back of the laptop. The surface the lap top rests on is wire mesh so there is no reduction in airflow. Never had a problem with it.

During gamming im getting freezing and flashing yellow light, on the power button.


Hello there, I am the computer technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Miles Gordon.

This is a typical overheating problem. See, your computer heats up when playing games, in the first 5-10minutes. As the components get warmer they increase the air tempreature in your computer chassis. This heated air is insufficient to cool your Processor and Graphics card, therefore resulting in a Blue Screen of Death known as BSOD.

You are using the GTS240 Graphics card, it is a tiny tot so go easy on the detail settings.
Use the following settings:
Resolution: 1920x1080 if your LCD display supports it.
Anti-Aliasing: off
Anisotropic filtering: off
Set the rest to medium or low.

You will have to play arounf with the other detail settings depending on playability. If it's jittery set it to a lower detail setting.

Install 120mm or 140mm fans in your computer chassis if possible. You should at least have one installed on the side panel to provide freash cool air to the graphics card, processor and power delivery system ,MOSFETs. With an additional 120mm fan installed at the rear of the chassis to exhaust heated air.

Your power supply should be rated for at least 500Watts continuous power output, since the core i7 processor is rather power hungry.

Click here to download Hardware Monitor, to check your tempreatures. Click download now, save the file to your computer and install it.

Your processor temp, should be nothing higher than 70degrees C and the Graphics card nothing higher than 75degrees C.

Take care!

G60-120US high temp problem


Laptop's temp should NEVER be higher than 60-70 C. Otherwise, windows or the CPU will shut it down (my laptop never goes over 75 C, even when running games for a short time)
A few tips:
1) Laptops are a really bad choice for games. They are not designed for that and they will overheat, some of them a lot, depending on the manufacturer.
2) Check if you BIOS has an option to turn "automatic fan control" OFF. This will keep the fan running at HIGH all the time, helping somewhat with the heat (most laptops do not have this control in the BIOS)
3) Clean up the fan. Turn the laptop off, disconenct the AC charger, remove the bottom cover and blow compressed air from a compressed air can. Be sure to remove all the dust and lint. Check that the fan moves easily. Replace the cover, plug the AC charger on and try again.
4) REMOVE SPEED FAN and install CPUID's Hardware Monitor from here:
http://www.cpuid.com/hwmonitor.php
It's much better and it gives you the temps of CPU, HD and video card and also speed of fan(s)

PC Monitor and Game problem


Sounds like your dedicate video card bit the dust and you're back using the onboard video, which would absolutely be the reason why things got choppy-- it can handle the demands put on it by the games.

A new dedicated video card would fix the problems.
