I know that it's not a gaming laptop, but it's not that bad actually, can handle almost every game on low or medium, sometimes on high.
Now back to my problem, it's always hot, even hotter when playing games. It's always been so, but now it started to shut itself down after playing for (up to) 30 minutes. I've been all over the internet trying to find a solution and couldn't find one.
I downloaded Speed Fan and checked the temperatures while gaming and doing nothing.
in game they all go up to 93-98 except for hdo.
Now, other people with the same system say they get max 70 in-game and much lower temperatures like 30-50. Something is obviously wrong but what? There hasn't been any changes in fan sound or anything? Does anyone have an idea?
Laptops suck in dust all the time and it clogs up the cooling system. I suggest blowing out the dust through the vents by the cpu with canned air. If this does not fix the problem you may have to remove the cpu heatsink and re-seat it with new thermal compound. A little complicated. Also, maybe a laptop cooling surface would help, the kind with fans on a plate that goes under the laptop. Good luck...
Laptop systems become unstable at around 70º, which is actually way too hot for idle. You should be at 35 to 45 idle, even less. Now, the guy above gave you the right answer, but you shouldn't push your laptop any further until you solved this, you risk corrupting your OS or damaging components. Lets hope not, but it is probably that your cpu wont work as good new due to all that heat.
