CPU Temperatures Spike After DC Jack Repair

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I just recently got my laptop back from a repair of my DC jack.

The DC jack itself is perfectly fine and it works great. The problem is my CPU.

On start up, the fans go extremely loud (very very loud) which is NOT normal for my laptop. I know that prior to sending in my laptop, start ups would be virtually silent.

Furthermore, I got a PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable when I started it up. I fixed this through BIOS settings and it wen't away on next start up.

But back to my CPU problem, at random times temperatures on all 4 cores would spike from 50C to 90-100C. A huge jump. This would be coupled with a very fast increase in fan speed which would result in a lot of fan noise. And note, this is under NO stress at all.

Prior to sending in my laptop, it rarely hits 100C even during intense gaming. And now for it to spike to 100C while idle?! This makes no sense at all.

My CPU: Intel i7-2630QM btw

ANY help at all as to what I could to do fix my laptop/suggestions would be very greatly appreciated.




Thanks so much all!

Can't really help you as any suggestions could possibly void your warranty. I suggest you contact the manufacturer and see what they have to say.

My warranty already passed and this was after I sent it to another service provider for repairs.

Take it back and complain. I dont know for your laptop because its a very rare model, but laptops either have the DC jack soldered on to the mobo, daughterboard or are a plug in cable. Some will require you to remove all the internals to get to the DC jack. Without completely disassembling the system theres no way to know if they did a sloppy solder job, if they had to remove the fan and didnt replace the TIM, or what. Id take it back and explain it to them, and hope they look at it.
