T480 sudden performance drop and strange temperature readings

2020-07-02, 17:43 PM

Sometimes, while doing trivial stuff like watching youtube my whole machine starts to lag extremely (sound, mouse, everything) to the point where its unuseable.

I tried to analyze if the core temperature is responsible but that's even stranger. Temperatur is marked as "critical" besides being somewhere around 60°C. Also the fan seems to not be running full speed.

So far I only noticed that problem while at home on my HP thunderbolt docking station with two 42'' monitors. Not at work so far.

 

Any ideas or known issues?

Gerade wieder beim Youtube schauen auf 90°C und kompletten Performance Verlust gekommen. Keine Ideen?

Kann das irgendwie an der Thunderbolt Docking Station liegen? Wohl eher nicht - aber sind da vielleicht irgendwelche Probleme bekannt?

 

LG

You could try this tool : https://sourceforge.net/projects/tp4xfancontrol/It works fine on my T480. Select Manual and enter from 1 to 7 (7 for full speed fan and 1 for lowest speed, but active fan)
