I've been using my laptop for about 10months now and since I've upgraded to Windows 7, I'm unable to render out any of my videos from my Adobe Premiere Pro CS4, Encore, Media Encoder and more...
I also noticed that whenever I play Call of Duty: Moder Warfare 2, after sometime my laptop shuts down abruptly. So I'm thinking, is it because my laptop's processor is running at 100% and it automatically shuts it down? But what I don't understand is, when I was using Windows Vista SP2 64bit, this doesn't happen. Help me please...
I've read in some of the previous posts that there could be a bug or a worm with "energy cut"? what the hell is that? can anyone please enlighten me? thanks.
Here's my laptop specs.:
Intel Core 2 Duo T5870
Apacer 4GB DDR2 800mhz RAM
WD Scorpio Blue 250GB 5400rpm
ATI Radeon HD3450
Windows 7 64bit Ultimate
I already did 2 clean installs of Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit and it still happens... =c
Solved! Go to Solution.

Checked system logs and still no luck... There's no log that says my laptop suddenly turned off or anything.
Regarding my memory, I have 4GB DDR2 800mhz RAM installed (2 x 2GB Apacer Modules).
I am guessing it's my processor that's heating up. When I run Core Temp and Speed Fan while I render, I noticed that Core 1's temperature is at a normal rate but the program says it's on a critical level (well the 48 degrees Celsius text turn to red so I guess it means that way?) .
Now I'm thinking if I should clean up my laptop's insides and apply new thermal grease on my processor to cool it off. I don't think anything's wrong with my processor since my laptop can run for days as long as I don't render footage and use up my resources very intensively...

If you noticed, I had a post before this about my Ideapad Y330 laptop turning off abruptly whenever I do intensive applications such as rendering a video in Adobe Premiere CS4 or playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
I tried to monitor my CPU's core temp and noticed that one of my cores heat up, what's weird is that the temp is only at the least 27 degrees Celsius and the max at 62 degrees Celsius but both of the programs show a red text in core 1...
I'm thinking of cleaning up my laptop's insides and apply new thermal compound or thermal grease (something like this: http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=149 or Artic Silver 5) on to my processor to cool it down...
Has anyone tried this? Can you tell me if it did you any good or if it significantly cooled down your processor?
moderator note: please do not split the discussion into different threads. thank you.

i do not suggest doing this.
1. taking apart your laptop is a pain and you might not get it back the way it was.
2. does this void your warranty? if so you prolly don't wanna do it
3. when installing a new heatsink on my desktop i put on my own thermal paste, only to find out later that this isn't always a good idea. the factories have a really good way of putting the paste on evenly and such.
you could check your bios auto shut off temps(again warranty comes into question), maybe try rendering with a laptop cooler just to see if that helps. the temps u gave would be fine on a desktop, don't know about a laptop.
