Windows 7: re: laptop is giving problems after it heats up

re: laptop is giving problems after it heats up

System cooling policy
On battery: Passive
Plugged in: Active

I rarely ever take the laptop anywhere. 90% of the time the laptop stays plugged in and sitting on the desk. I had an older Toshiba Satellite M60 laptop OS XP Pro that I used to use for my ham radio digital sound card prog's that sat so long plugged in that the battery leaked a black tarry substance all over the bottom of the laptop, on the table and under the cover were the memory sticks and the wifi board are. I salvaged what I could and tosted the rest in the garbage. This is kind of like when I used to fix cb radios for a living back when cb's were the craze. I get ppl coming in with there rigs saying there radio transmissions were going out garbled and bothering the nighbors tv's and radios. I open the radio up and find that the transmit bios voltage was cranked way up and the final transistors blazing hot because they were over the top of the linear slope and flat topping which causes splattering all over the band. The cb operators are only allowed to transmit a max of 5 watts. By cranking up the bios voltage they can get it up to about 8 watts of power out. But there is a price to pay for doing that. Changing the power plain reminded me of the cb bit. Same general thing with cranking up the juice on the cpu.

Cooling pad will help for sure, I don't have experience with a vacuum fan.

Did you try stress testing the CPU yet?

Having CPU at 100% isn't like what you describe though (my desktop is 100% for 5.5 years now), what you describe looks more like overclocking. Especially when gaming a constant 100% is much better than a ever fluctuating CPU.

re: laptop is giving problems after it heats up

It is possible that the cooling policy was changed. I got the laptop from a pawn shop. With my experiences with fixing 2 way radios and tv's I follow the practice of "if it isn't broke don't fix it or change factory settings". That practice has served me well.

re: laptop is giving problems after it heats up

2 problems solved today. I got a wireless keyboard and mouse online and it arrived today in the snail mail. The way this laptop is layed out, the audio in and out jacks are right under palm of my left hand when playing games. I had to put a small stick under the headphone jack so I don't mess up the headphone jack. Also that mini USB fan that attaches to the laptop air exhaust port came in todays snail mail. The laptop case in the lower right hand corner is running about 25 cooler. That little fan is pulling a lot of the hot air out of the laptop case.

I can past in the High Performance settings in if you need to see them. Also I have picked out 2 things on Ebay that I am going to get when I get my SSDI check on Oct 1st. A USB LED Light 2 Fan 9"-17" Laptop Notebook cooling pad adjustable cooler and a mini vacuum USB cooler air extracting cooling fan for pc laptop. Between the 2 they should keep the laptop at a safe temperature. What do you think

By the way your Specs say: CPU dual core 2.1 gb each
But HWInfo only show a max of 1.73GHz, maybe it was not even run at 100%.
