My laptop which is a Aspire 5920 DC with vista randomly shut off during high demand programs. Installing a temp sensor (Speedfan) shows my GPU at 76+C and both my cores reaching 80C. I assume this is the cause but cant find at what temp overheating occurs for this model. I did buy a fan base for the laptop, but it seems to have no effect. What should I do to drop my cores heat?
I took it apart for cleaning and yes there was quite a bit of dust...thats gone, but i still spike 82C on my GPU and my cores levels out at 78 each while under stress..are these temps still considered normal? Also, I do hear the fan
