T410 shutting down durring movie encoding

2011-04-28, 7:38 AM
So I had never had this problem before, but then again i had never tried to encode anything 1080p longer than a minute or two before either. I had installed Cyberlink Powerdirector 8 on my T410 running win7 home premium 64 with a i5-540 and 4GB RAM, 7200prm HD. When exporting movies in HD, est time varying based on lenghth and bitrate etc from 30min - 2hr, my computer would shut down, like an instant "off", with no prompt or subsequent error message, after a few minutes. I thought is was a problem with the Cyberlink program, so i tried it with Windows Live Movie Maker, which suffered from the same phenomenon, although only with 1080p files (not with 720p)... i uninstalled cyberlink Powerdirector, yet Win Live MM still crashed the computer. Reading around on the internet it seems that perhaps this is because my cpu is overheating? However, this seems odd, ass even wit the 720p export in Win Live MM my cpu was cloccking at 88%-98%, although with eth 1080p exports it almost wholly stays above 95% cpu usage. Is this a software problem of a hardware problem? Is there anything i can do? It seems absurd to me that my computer which has an effective proc power of 5Ghz with overclocking potential should not be able to handle this. my system cooling profile is active, and my cpu cooling is set to max performance. I have tried this with cpu on adaptive and high. k. before posting, i set my cpu to "lowest" in PM, and it worked ok, if slowwww ( i mean 1.5hr for 1 32min 2GB file). ----------------------------------------------------- is there anything i can do so that i can encode video at higher cpu speeds without overheating? or is this stuff my T410 really cant handle?

It should be able to handle it just fine. Install HWMonitor and see what kind of temperatures it reaches.

srry. hadnt really done any HD encodes since then. k this time did a short 2m37s 1080p encode with CPUs set on Adaptive THM0 maxed out at 99 deg c core#0 @ 105 deg c core#2 @ 104 deg c assembly @ 46 deg c the numbers were climbing slowly but steadily as it ran.

hum so basically it means the laptop is shutting down from overheating. Have you tried cleaning the fan/heat vent.

Do you have warranty still?

Also try tightening the heatsink screws. Otherwise, if you're in warranty, use it and have them check the thermal paste. If you're not and/or you're handy with laptops, you could check and/or repaste it yourself.

I would be interested, if it helped. I have the same issue with a T410 crashing (powering off) unexpectedly.
