T60P 2007 cto very hot

Hello,

 

I have got  a T60p and each time I am playing on my computer it finish by crashing because it is very hot.

I guess the hot come from the video card. The thing is I sent several times my laptop to the after sales servic. My mother board had been changed several times and the fan too. But I still can't play on my laptop. I saw another T60p of a friend and he doesn't have that kind of problem. He can play as much as he want.

 

Have you got any idear? I've been paying a lot of money for my laptop but it is not working correctly.

 

Kind regards

Re: T60P 2007 cto very hot

This is a known problem with the T60p and the T61 has a redesigned heatsink because of this.  If the computer is still under warranty, you can send it in again.  Or, you can try carefully removing the heatsink and making sure that there's a thin layer of heat grease between the GPU/CPU and the heat spreader (too little is bad, too much is also bad).

Re: T60P 2007 cto very hot

The problem of overheating ATI GPU card in the T60p, was probably one of the reason that Lenovo switched GPU to Nvidia for the T61/T61p/R61, which itself have other technical issues, so switched back to ATI for the R/T/4xx/5xx and W500. 

 

But i would get it looked at by depot if you still got warranty.

Re: T60P 2007 cto very hot

Thank you guys for youyr answers.

Yes my laptop is still under warranty until september or something like that.

So I will send it back ASAP.

The thing is that I saw a friend with a T60P and I was playing with him and he didn't get any trouble.

I guess he has got another type of T60p I can't remember which version he has. But how can we get so muche difference between to same configuration ?

 

I don't think it will help me to send back my laptop because last time I send it for this problem they just change the heater..
