5 months ago I bought a Toshiba Satellite z830, recently over the last 2 weeks I've noticed it getting very hot while running programs etc (i figured this was normal), however it gets so physically hot I thought maybe not so normal. I download speccy and it showed the following:
CPU: 80 - 85 degrees
Motherboard:80 -85 degrees
Harddrive: 55 - 60 degrees
Last night I would get those temps about a minute after I turn on the pc, after about 5 minutes windows will freeze and I would have to shut down. Some times a window would pop up saying 'the program is not responding' or something like that.
I figured this is a hardware issue and have booked it in for a service with Toshiba's mobilecare.
BUT... Way back when, I though I'd try ubuntu, I didn't really like it and kept using windows. When I started getting issues last night, I thought I'd try booting into Ubuntu to see how that goes, and after
using it last night and today I have no heating issues at all and the pc runs perfectly. Which makes me believe that this is a windows issue.
If I log back into windows and do nothing it will freeze in 5 minutes everytime, so I can't really give you any diagnostic info because windows will sh*t itself. I tried sfc /scannow it got to 72% then froze.
Thanks for reading my essay and please help!
