Re: T61 overheating issues.

Hello,

 

opening the machine won´t void warranty, but removing heatsink from cpu/gpu will.

 

Simply take a vacuum cleaner and let it suck the dust out of the heatsink. 

Or blow it out from inside to outside, by opening the machine as it´s suggested by the videos.

Thanks, the vacuum probably reduced temps by 6C. I also vacuumed the ducts that the notebook uses to intake air.

 

there was a LOT of dust.

Make sure to update the BIOS and check the fan settings as described earlier.
