Intergrated video card overheating..?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Alright i got a

HP Pavilion dv7 3067nr (laptop)

AMD II m500 2.2ghz
4gb ram
HD radeon 4200 mobile


Every time i try to play any 3d game even low quality like minecraft(all very low settings) it crashes about 30 seconds in....i thought the comp was overheating at first.

runs around 63c watching a full screen video....

I did buy a laptop cooler thing to go under the laptop and that actually let me play for about 5 more minutes before it crashed again...

I've tried reinstalling/updating directx,video drivers,even audio/network/windows update

When it crashes its a black screen or vertical lines and have to hold power button to shut off..


any help?

only thing i can think of is underclocking/volting cpu or gpu..if that's even possible on HP laptop..

That is a low temperature...so you should not be crashing at that temperature. How are you measuring GPU temperature?

But then again, crappy video card = crappy reliability.

Have you take compressed air and dusted out your laptop recently?

Well before i got this laptop cooler IDLE at 70c+ ...so hot the keyboard was hot and touching the bottom was to hot to actually hold a finger there......i just use a program COre Temp ...Core 0-1 (cpu i presume) thats where temps are so i dont think i can see act GPU temp

Havent compressed recently


the thing is though i can have the laptop on my bed(so its circulation is not that great) playing fullscreen HD youtube videos or watching a video which i know makes it run hot...and it will not blackscreen....but playing a game when the comp is just started up(so its cold)...and it will crash 30 seconds in...


have not compressed will try 2morow morning..

I have the same model of HP laptop you do. Hp dv7 17inch beast. The only diffenernce is I have an intel chipseet/cpu with ati mobility gpu. My laptop died one day due to the motherboard overheating and nuking it's self. My guess is that it could be your motherboard/NB is overheating. I did research on it that it seems to be this laptops main fault.

that sucks because the laptop i had before this one died the same way as that.....i swear its a scam..its 2011 how can't they manage good airflow in laptops

Cause laptops are getting smaller and slimmer leaving no room for air flow. You could try blowing out you laptop I'd try sticking something in the fan to keep the bear from getting destroyed from being spun too fast.

You might have accidentally overheated it one to many times, and now it is damaged by the heat. This would cause it to become unstable, even at low temperatures. There is nothing you can do to fix this.

If it is only crashing during games, we need to know GPU temp. I am not familiar with core temp. I use PC Wizard (free) for temps and voltages. http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/pc-wizard.html . There is a chance that the GPU might not have a temperature sensor built in.

Agreed. I only got mine for school. Built in tv tuner, full keyboard and huge screen. Made it great for dorm life, tv/movies, and school work. But I am for sure just goetting desktops from now on.

got the program, guessing my laptop only has 2 sensors HD 37c CPU 65c

its true maybe laptop video card could of burnt out...
