z560 overheating.

2011-04-21, 22:52 PM

recently i notice my laptop turns off automatically just after 10-12 mins, while using a heavy app, like photoshop, or a game,

i tried the fan cleaning method, can there be any other problem besides the reduced rpm of fan, 

will a cooling pad help?

Yes a cooling pad might help.  Also, suggest installing an app such as speedfan to get a handle on what the temperature is looking like on the CPU and GPU.  I don't have any such overheating problems with my Z560.  Are you holding it in your lap when it overheats?  You have to be very careful to ensure there are no blockages of the cooling intakes/exhausts.

If I play a game fullscreen for an extended period of time, mine will do that too.  Usually just edges above 80, and I imagine once it gets to 90 or 95 it shuts off (hasn't happened to me yet).  You could try turning down the graphics, playing in windowed mode, or using a program like "Game Booster" to minimize system load from things other than the game.  Other than that, set it on a hard table and maybe prop up the back end with a deck of cards or something to allow more airflow underneath.  A cooling pad is never a bad idea for gaming on a laptop that doesn't have a massive air handling system.

please reset your power settings by going to the battery options through control panel and reset all the power plan setting as it was shipped with and try using balanced power setting mode, i faced the same issue as yours, i solved my problem like this.
