Re: T400 Overheating After Installing Windows 8

2012-11-13, 23:51 PM

Overheating is related to the ATI Radeon graphic card, you should install the latest graphic Win7 drivers and switchable graphics drivers for Win7. I know that HP has Win8 drivers for ATI switchable graphics, but I didn't test it.

Read more about that in this link .

Re: T400 Overheating After Installing Windows 8

I notice also the overheating in windows 8. I think that the fans are turning on when it is already too late?

 

I do not like to be adjusting manually the fans all the time with tpfancontrol... Any way of fixing this?

Re: T400 Overheating After Installing Windows 8

I also had Overheating and Low battery life issue after installing windows 8.1 on my T400. After doing a lot of reasearch and intalling almost all the drivers (incl switchable graphics driver ) nothing helped.

 

Finally I shifted to integerated Graphics driver in my BIOS from the ATI Radeon 3400 and this has fixed both the problem of overhearting as well as Low battery.

 

Hopefully this will help a few people.
