|I have an ASUS G73J laptop with I7 processors 6 gigs ram, ATI radion HD5870 card, running on windows 7. For the last week or so I've had a problem with it suddenly shutting down on me.|
I get no error messages when I reboot, it looks like overheating. I've DL'ed a temp monitor (realtemp 3.60), and it runs close to 70degrees C when I'm gaming. My fans appear to be working, and I hear no bearing noise...
The only other thing I've noticed is on the 'Resource Monitor" application, my CPU Frequency hovers around 60% when Idle, and around 98-107% when I'm gaming. It has been crashing on a relatively old game (neverwinter Nights 2 via steam), while playing online (I log onto steam offline though).. My fans appear to be working (no bearing noise), and the fan on the hot side tends to be pumping more then the one on the relatively cooler side.
With my gaming rig I shouldn't have such issues.... Any thoughts? recommendations?
Am I right to be concerned with my resource monitor CPU frequency? I'm somewhat computer literate, but by no means savy. Please help.
