For laptop computers there is little you can do internally - for example, you cannot replace the cpu heatsink/fan with any other one than the same model. However I've had pretty good results by getting a nice laptop stand that has one or two large fans built into the stand. This dissipates the heat generated by the laptop much more effectively than sitting on a flat desk or other surface, and with luck, it may allow you to game on without shutting down.

Also, you can turn off some of the game effects - which requires less processing, thus less heat is generated.

Core temp


The fan could be partially faulty and cannot spin fast enough.
You can also purchase a fan assisted cooling pad and place the laptop on this cooling pad.

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)

Hi my advent laptop says its wireless enabled but when i have tried to set it uo with my wireless router it says i have no connection i have been told by my internet provider to get intouch with advent but...


Hi,

You may have turn the wireless radio on first before you can connect to the internet.

Look down the sides of the laptop for a small slide switch and push it, an LED light should come on.

If you can't find a switch then hold down Fn and hit the F2 key.



Regards.

I have a advent 7104, when i turn it on all i get is a black screen. ca anyone help?


Your inverter could be shot, try attaching an external monitor and see if you can see anything. You may have to use your function keys to switch to an external monitor. If this works, then you have lost your backlight.
