Windows 7: High Temps for ACPI and Processors.

06 Aug 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x86

The warranty is used up, and after a new coating of thermal grease my video card has stayed a lot lower than it used to. Unless you are saying that the damage has already been done and now that is what is causing the constant overheating of the ACPI and CPU. If that is the case I might as well get a new laptop =\. Thanks a lot for the replies!

Well, yes and no - I would continue to use the laptop until it's not feasible (either hardware problems or age), and then replace it. Just know you do have a potential problem on your hands in the future, whether it be near or far.

Warranty or not -- contact Toshiba for possible solutions. Toshiba was always good about sending out notices of free replacements when a unit was detected as defective from design--quite different that the policies of Dell and HP.

With the excessive temp you have, immediately get a small desk fan and let it blow directly on your laptop. Those temps will destroy your notebook.

Here's a link that will explain how to update your system specs;

I should have included this link to start with. Actually, we need an actual tutorial dedicated to this subject as every newbee overlooks this. I know that I did and only found it by accident one day and then updated and completed the info.

Be sure to backup very soon because at the temps you have, your notebook could go out any second.

Sorry about that, I think I joined before you made that post XD! I didn't realize there was a section in our profile dedicated to filling out Specs. I'll try calling them although they charge a 30 dollar fee, so I'm going to make sure I have all the info about this graphics card issue.

PS. I already have a desk fan which is probably one of the only things saving it. Thanks for the advice though ^_^

Very high CPU usage, causing very high laptop CPU temps (90c idle)
This problem began yesterday. I noticed my CPU was at 90C constantly with very high CPU usage (>50%). I had no major programs running. I rebooted several times and the program persisted. 1. I went into safe mode and everything was normal. So this rules out hardware issues. 2. I reformatted and...
