HP Envy 14 HD 5650, laptop goes into hibernate

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I am an old-school member at overclock.net, and feels good to be back in the fam.

So basically I now have a laptop, HP Envy 14, running the i5 intel at 2.66, 8gb, ram and HD 5650 video card.

I have played games on this laptop such as Dead Space 2 and it ran very good without problems.


However, i recently started playing Crysis 2 and the laptop would go into hibernation by itself after 15 minutes.

So I used a spray can and sprayed out the fans and it crashes like 35 minutes later.


The GPU temps are reaching a scary 85C. Is this the culprit of the hibernation?


Is it safe to say my laptop is essentially never going to play Video Games, i am still on my warranty and am looking to get my $ back and build a desktop.




Looking for the great advice i always get from Overclock.net!

Cheers,
AtoMicMoNkeY15 !

85c sounds okay for a laptop GPU. My 8600M GS would reach 93C and it is still alive.

If I was you I would build a desktop of course, but if you have to get around a lot I would keep it.

A stupid question.. but are you sure that the laptop is plugged in? As far as I know the game should freeze/artifact or the OS should BSOD if it is a GPU error. I would check Control Panel-Power Management and see about screen shutdown/hibernate options.

If temps were the issue it wouldn't hiberate, it would either reboot or the driver would crash.

85 degrees is not that hot at all for a modern GPU.

Even if it were faulty you would not get your money back, you would get a replacement.
