post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys a lil problems with my gf,s lappy.
At idle it runs almoust at 70C+
And when trying to play some game it runs @ 93C

Her lappy have AMD Athlon II P320 Dual core @ 2.1Ghz


The Lappy have survived some problem.keyboard got taste of coca cola and it felt down from tabble.

But when had problem with cocacola took her lappy to some cheap pc service where they cleaned it all only keyboard was not working.

So guys mybe have chance to manualy incrase CPU fan speed or somthing? Cuz as in forums i read P320 95C is max tempreture it can survive.

There is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY that it should be running this hot. I doubt you can increase the fan speed and this can be an indicator of a bigger problem..

Well there was once when fans failed to start at 2nd try fans worked fine again but now it seems even at 100% the fans runs realy slow.
So simply dont have idea how close to death is the lappy

I'd go and have a root around in your systems BIOS but I'm pretty sure you won't be able to change it.

I would suggest first trying to clean/replace the fan. If it's clogged with dust it's going to roast. Also, you might be able to shave off some C's if you replace the thermalpaste while you're at it. And as Blackhand said, a laptop cooler might help you. First I'd try looking at cleaning/replacing the fan.
