Windows 7: High Temperatures, Please Help.

High Temperatures, Please Help.

I have replaced the thermal paste on my laptop cpu/gpu. Until recently I had no issues with my laptop... Not sure what the issue could be, when I plug in my laptop it goes off the wall 90C in seconds, within a few minutes it starts freezing.

I found a pch ba62-00503A spot the last time I ripped it apart and saw I didn't change the thermal paste there but I don't think that is the issue, it's the actual CPU/GPU.

I took this summary basically at idle... Chrome with 6 tabs or so open, excel, speccy and notepad. Nothing intensive, used to do a lot more.

Are your fan vents known to be clear of dust and goo?

Are your fan RPMs known to be within normal ranges?

I'd run something like HWInfo to get a better look at fan details, voltages, and temps of various components.

Did this problem show up before or after you replaced the thermal paste?

How confident are you that you did a decent job of replacing the paste?

Before this problem, how high did CPU temps get at idle or at load?

- I have attatched that at the bottom.

Did this problem show up before or after you replaced the thermal paste?

- It was before, I figured it was the issue.

How confident are you that you did a decent job of replacing the paste?

I am very confident, I have been building my own desktops for 20 years. I suppose there could always be a possibility, I could re-do it.

Before this problem, how high did CPU temps get at idle or at load?
I never looked before to be honest, I just noticed a few days prior that my laptop charger and the laptop itself were extremely hot compared to nomal then it started stuttering and slowing down like crazy.

What are the answers to those 5 questions?

Do you have any particular aversion to running HWInfo? It's a free download that will give useful details.

I did answer them, they just somehow ended up in a quote, I was using my phone at the time to respond. I do apologize.

Did this problem show up before or after you replaced the thermal paste?

- It was before, I figured it was the issue.

How confident are you that you did a decent job of replacing the paste?

I am very confident, I have been building my own desktops for 20 years. I suppose there could always be a possibility, I could re-do it.

Before this problem, how high did CPU temps get at idle or at load?
-I never looked before to be honest, I just noticed a few days prior that my laptop charger and the laptop itself were extremely hot compared to nomal then it started stuttering and slowing down like crazy.

Hmmmm.........I looked through the thousands of words in that log and didn't see what I expected.

Can you run HWInfo 32 again in "sensor only" mode--that should be an option when you first open the app.

That will show much less info, but just sensor stuff--temps, voltages, fan speeds.

Either post screen shots of the sensor info or just report what it says about these temps:

CPU package current temp

Current total CPU usage %

Motherboard current temp

Vcore current voltage

PCH temp

Current temps for any hard drives

Current fan speeds

I don't necessarily know how to evaluate those for a laptop, but it will give someone else a chance to comment on them.

Laptops do run hot---commonly into the 80s as far as I know. I think your CPU has an absolute max temp of 105 before it shuts down.

But right now, I don't even know if your fans are spinning as they should.

Does it run hot both on batteries and on AC power?

I notice that the CPU cores are running at 3193 on AC, but only 2394 on battery. Is that normal for laptops? I know nothing about them.

Core 1 is throttling on AC. No throttling on battery.

Drive temps are OK.

Core max temp 85 on AC, 70 on battery.

I don’t see any indication of fans at all.

For all I know, your fan is completely dead.

Other than the throttling and the differences between AC and battery, I don’t notice anything weird.

In post 7, second pic, the column for max temp for core 1 thermal throttling is cut off and not shown. I’m guessing it shows 105 or near that? That’s the TJmax temp at which I think the cores are supposed to throttle.

Sorry I can’t help more. Maybe someone else can.

I suppose it's possible your paste application is suspect.

And I guess we don't know if this is abnormal since you never looked at temps before.

Yeah, it's 105.

I can't get any apps to show fan speeds but if I take the bottom off and turn it in the fans engage and I hear them speed up and slow down. The bottom is clear and clean.
