TOSHIBA Setallite L655 missing GPU temp! Possible unconnected wires?

I've just bought a new laptop last Monday.

It's a TOSHIBA Setallite L655-1GL.
It has Core i3 and ATI Radeon 5470 Mobility.

Everest says the mobo is "TOSHIBA Setallite L655" (without the -1gl specific model number),
and that the BOIS type is "Insyde" v1.90.

Now, I only mention this since I cannot find the GPU listed on the BIOS.
Not even merely mentioned anywhere on there.

Everest does list the GPU but it won't recognize a temperature for it.

Could it be that some wires in there just aren't connected?

Could it be a software issue?
If I install the newest driver from ATI's site will Everest show me the temp?

Ok, so it's like this....

First tested with Everest.
Then with GPU-Z.
And then with AIDA64 (A newer version from the creators of Everest).

Everest = Only basic info (The "GPU" node is empty).
GPU-Z = Nothing! ONLY GPU name and RAM Size.
AIDA64 = All the info about the GPU... its exact bus size and its code name and everything, BUT still no temperature!

Any ideas?

- Also, I do not get the mobo temp as well... all I get is the CPU and HDD.

My mistake...... I was using CPU-Z which showed nothing (only the name and RAM size) instead of GPU-Z.

GPU-Z finally got everything including the temperature!

Thnak you!

On a slightly different subject...

What would you say about 63 C on Idle!?!?

That is a bit warm. But it isn't too hot for a laptop.
You want to make sure you stick a straightened paperclicp into the fan grill (to hold the fan in place) every couple of months after doing a total power down, and uplug the A/C Adapter, then shoot the vents (where you stuck the paper clip) with can of compressed air

I see, cleaning/blowing the dust from the inside....

This is a brand new comp, but my room is a little hot.. it's summer here in Israel.

Well, thanks for the info, you've been very helpful!
