My laptops CPU has been overheating, reaching temps of up to 95 degrees on idle. I have replaced the stock thermal paste on the CPU with arctic silver 5. I've put it all back together but it still sits at 95 degrees, even after cleaning the filters.
I read that I should remove the AMD catalyst install manager and update it. I updated it but still no luck.
The warranty is also out of date.
I would really appreciate any help...
After updating my amd catalyst package I've now been receiving grey screens with lines on it. GSOD. I have no other option but to shut it down. I read I might need to update my vbios.
The forum was a year old so I'm guessing it's been superseded. If I was to just reformatt windows, would it automatically update most components possibly fixing the GSOD and the absurd temperature?
Actually I don't know because i've never owned an asus laptop before Also have you updated to the drivers on amd's website?
Yes, just the AMD catalyst install package though. I would like to just run through a re-format but i can't risk having the computer on for that amount of time.
Any ideas muffin? Thanks for your help as well
Sorry amuffin, what do you mean by that? I may have used the wrong words there, but while in task manager i go to the "performance" tab and it says the CPU usage is at 100%. I have never overclocked it but could it perhaps for some reason be set to a higher frequency therefore making it over heat?
