Default Computer over heating - 08-29-2011, 03:24 PM

Hey, anyone that looks at this.
I'm having a very annoying computer over heating problem.
I have a laptop, and it's fairly new, I got it in March.
Sooo, I've been playing League of Legends, and my laptop always over heats, at least once every 3 games. The way I play is fucking annoying, I have it so that only a slight part touching something. Most of my computer is just in mid air, one edge is on my knees, and the other end is on my foot stool.

So, the bottom of the laptop, on the left side it has one fan in the corner, and it's always cool there, but right beside it there is a metal plug used for plugging the laptop into a projector, it gets so hot that if I held my finger on it for like 5 seconds I'd get a burn.
There are 2 large vents in the middle, one horizontal, and one vertical. These don't have a fan.
The right side is completely empty, and doesn't get hot.

Here are my computer specs, as far as I know, it shouldn't have much of a problem running League of Legends.

Model: HP Pavilion g7 Notebook PC
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU M380 @ 2.53 GHz 2.53 GHz
Installed memory (RAM): 4.00 GB (3.80 GB usable)
System type: 64-bit Operating System
I have 331GB free of 450 GB on my C:

K, so, Idk what's up, When I got my computer it worked pretty well playing the game, even sitting on my lap, now it over heats even when the whole bottom is exposed.

Is it a problem with the computer?
Is it something I did?
Could it be fixed by buying an external fan?

Idk, just please help me, I'm sick of this shit.

Also, I just bought Starcraft 2, and I don't want this shit to happen when I play it, since that's like a guaranteed loss.

Ok, i'm going to tell you how to fix this, but you can't laugh or complain about my methods.

Step 1: Go to the store and buy bubble wrap.
Step 2: Wrap your computer in bubble wrap.
Step 3: Stick your computer in the freezer, while covered in bubble wrap.
Step 4: Leave the freezer open as you continue to play your games.

Now, let me tell you why this works....

The bubble wrap insulates the cold temperature and cools down your machine. The freezer obviously keeps the bubble wrap cold, which in turn decreases the computer temperature.

Proof this works:

actually, i found a solution so i dont need to buy that now.

make it so the vent part hangs off the edge of a table, avoid putting it on carpet/blankets, and close browser screens when you dont use them

We are so on the same page, My gateway windows vista pos overheats and dies randomly it's always hot as fuck though..

If you go online or to a computer store, maybe they have little things you can plug into the laptop and a piece goes under it, in that thing is a fan. I had one but I broke it.. /:

Wont stop the problem but will let you play.

You forgot to mention your graphics card, Operating System as well as your PS (Power Supply) wattage. Please include those.

Don't spam in my section please. Wanting help, depending on the situation such as this one, is a serious matter. Please stop.. Although you did help, the spam wasn't needed.

It could actually be very dusty, but apart from that, laptops can become overheated very quickly seeing how they're too compact. That's why laptops become overheated much more than desktops; size matters. You could try cleaning it out, but I doubt that would do much because the size won't change on a laptop unless you switch over to a desktop. It'll just become dusty all the time since it's small and I'm sure you wouldn't want to clean it out every so often.

Martin, she stated the above pretty clear. Please read closely next time.

Yes. Sorry, but what else would it be if the computer is the victim here?

I am not sure. You tell me. What have you done to it since the day you received it in March? Did you drop it? Add any new hardware? Anything at all?

Yes. Even something like this would help but again, we want to solve this by terminating the main problem rather than go around it. http://lapsun.en.made-in-china.com/p...New-Item-.html

That's only a portion as to how to prevent more heat from being accumulated. It's all up to the hardware and how you use your laptop that depends on overheating. If it is the power and your power scheme is not set to "Portable/Laptop", do the following:

Start > Control Panel > Power Options > "Power schemes" > "Portable/Laptop" > "OK".

Tell me the output from everything here.




^ Thanks, Nigma.


^ Thanks, Devon.


^ Thanks, Xanadu.


^ Thanks, Martin.

There are these fan plate thingy that you could buy. Idk the name for ut but I've got it. Its like a square plate wich lift your computer up a few centimeters, and it has got two fans underneath it. Simply plugged in one of your usb ports to work. Works very good for me.

@Josh

I think this is the graphics card: Intel (R) HD Graphics (Core i3)
It also says the Approx Total Memory is 1696 MB

The operating system: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7600)

Wattage for power supply, is that what it says on the back of my Plug? If so, its 65w.
That also gets very hot, even if I've only been using it for about 1 hr.


Also, as far as I know, I haven't done anything that could hurt it, I've only downloaded minimal programs, and the largest program that I've downloaded is probably Photoshop.
I've tried to keep this laptop very clean, to keep it running fast.

K, so I tried the power thing, but I couldn't find what you were talking about.
This is as far as I got, I looked at the create a power option thing, but it only had power saver, recommended, and high performance, nothing about laptop. atm I'm on recommended.


Yes. Sorry, but what else would it be if the computer is the victim here?
Idk, by is it the computer, I meant, is it something I'd have to send it back in to the manufacturer to fix.
