HP DV2740SE Overheating - Page 2

I installed Speedfan, and monitored it briefly, while looking in the event viewer. I can't remember the temps, however, they were rising rapidly.

I'm still at work, and I will get all relevant info, including correct model number, tonight.

Make sure you lay your laptop on a flat surface, and leave some room under the laptop for it too breathe.

My Athlon Toshiba will overheat immediately if I hold it vertically.

I updated the OP with correct model number. I don't have a power brick at this time, as my wife is using it for hers. Who would have thought that the power brick for this model works on an Acer Aspire? xD


Anyway, I'm at a standstill for the time being as the battery crapped out and my uncle tossed it before he gave me the laptop. I'll be back later.

I'm using the laptop to post this. It's been on for the past 15 minutes with an external laptop cooler.

Both Speedfan and HWMonitor report temps as such:

Speedfan
GPU: 65
HD0: 42
Temp1: 51
Temp2: 54
Core: 49-56 (it jumps between the 2)

HWMonitor
Wistron 30D6
TZS0: 50 44 65
TZS1: 50 47 68

AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile TL-62
Core 0: 53 50 68
Core 1: 47 39 62

Fujitsu MHY2250BH
Airflow: 43 39 43

It would seem that new TIM and some modding will help this thing greatly. Also, the sound doesn't work. Doesn't detect the chip at all.


EDIT: I think I fixed it. Sound, too. I took apart the laptop. The engineers probably thought that they would have a good laugh.

Got to the heatsink. Problem was apparent from the second I saw it. In between the heatsink dip and the GPU was, I kid you not, a solid 3mm of open space. What made contact? A thermal pad that I mistook as cotton.

I replaced the 16 ml of TIM placed with a healthy amount of AS5, and placed a penny to close the gap for the GPU. Changed the power settings to ACTIVE COOLING as opposed to passive, and changed max CPU to 80%.

That alone dropped temps to 35-40. I'm gonna be throwing a bunch of tests at it. See how much it can handle at this point.
