Re: lenovo G580 overheating

If the notebook suffered a drop, one that broke the HDD then it could have damaged the Heatsink / Fan as well. If the heatsink is not in firm contact with the CPU / GPU it will cause the overheating issue, also check to make sure the fan is working, it is necessary to move air in/out of the notebook.

Hi hamoz1993,




I would also say the heatsink and fan needs to be check as it fails to draw the heat out from the parts otherwise it can be a bad board. Having it check with your local service center can help verify the issue as they would have spares handy to swap.
