Lenovo C950 15 gets really and and doesn't use the external graphics

2020-08-11, 17:10 PM

Hi everyone


In January i bought the C940 15 with UHD. I still love the notebook, butit does have a few really annoying problems:


The first is that it heats up really fast ad  gets loud, even if it doesnt does a lot. For example watching youtube. CPU is on 12%. RAM on 30% and in 5mi its too hot to have it on my lap or drawing on it in tablet mode. I deactivated the smart cooling and it made it did work, but only for a few hours. My solution is to charge it completely, use it a few hours and then plug it back in. It works but i dont like it, especially if its a notebook for over 2000€.


The second(and bigger) problem is, that the notebook doenst really use the external nvidia. In games it goes until 30% and not higher, even if the games could run better (its an average of 40 fps on witcher 3). At the same time the internal intel UHD goes up to 90-100%. No matter what i did, it didnt solve the problem...


Hope there is someone who can help me
