Windows 7: Laptop still shuts down

12 Jun 2012   #1

Laptop still shuts down

I dont know what could be causing the problem, I thought it was overheating for it to randomly shut down (no blue screen instantly shuts off) I am using a program called "CoreTemp" to monitor the temperature of each core (4 cores) and 2 of them hit a maximum of 61C which is no where near hot how i've seen it get (up to 97c)

Is there anything else that can cause a shutdown? I've read some other peoples post and some people recommended to update their nvidia drivers, would updating drivers really fix a serious problem of shutting down?

I'm using a laptop model: VPCF116FX

Im sorry for the multiple posts, new things just kept happening so was how I updated t, I didn't know you can't delete a post ( not that I know of)

If it got up to 97șC it could've caused some damage.

It hit 97 several months ago when I played a very demanding game. Today I just opened my laptop to check the fan and heatsink, it wasn't clogged as much as I thought it would be. So that aside, I tested it numerous times, I had the game running in the background and observed its temperature and it randomly shut down at 61c ( its been at 61 for like 20 minutes) anyways 61c isn't too dangerous enough for it to shut down, so I dont know why
