Ideapad Y560 i5-460M temperatures

2011-05-21, 8:38 AM

Hy!

 

I have noticed some high temperatures while gaming .. CPU gets to 80-90 celsius , GPU around 85.

Is this normal or should I contact the reseller and send it in for service ?

 

Just played heroes of newerth for ~1hour  , core temp says max was 82 on core1 , 86 on core2.

 

Edit : the laptop is a month old , so it can't be dust in the heatsinks.

 

Thank you!

Hy!
It says BIOS Version/Date LENOVO 30CN62WW, 7/23/2010.
Should I update to the latest version ? And won't that void the warranty?

I'll get a cooling pad by the end of next week , but I think that will only get it 5-10 degrees lower.

it won't void the warranty. update bios first, if the issue persists, update power management and post back the results.

I have updated both the bios and the energy management sofware , GPU seems to be a few degrees cooler - in assassins creed brotherhood 78 degrees , but the CPU still goes up to almost 90 degrees (peaked at 87 degrees 1st core and 85 second one).
Is there any software I can use to check the fan speed ? for some reason speedfan does not see any fans on the machine.

I already tried speedfan , and it does not see any fans in the machine.Gpu-z says the fan speed of the gfx card is 70% , and if there is only one fan in the machine that might be the problem.Meanwhile I have sent an email to the reseller , asking if the temps are normal or not , hope they will reply soon.

maximum temperature is 90.
can you check the temp in safe mode? maybe it's software related issue.

Hy!

I tried checking in safe mode , but I don't have access to the sensors there , probably some driver is not loaded .

Ran prime95 for around 5 mins and the leftside of the laptop got hot , so I guess the problem is there as well.

Meanwhile my reseller responded and said that there is nothing out of the ordinary , but I can call lenovo romania if i want and ask them.

I will probably call them tomorrow , and get a cooling pad by the end of the week , regardless of the temps being normal or not.

 

PS : The link you gave me had the i7 CPU , I believe that one is supposed to run a bit hotter than mine since it has 4 cores.

 

Thanks!
