|I'd rather not take it to a tech. Be honest, I'm just cheap. I did get the training and I am a certified HP tech. I've gone through all the training, have my A+ and a bunch of other certs... not saying I'm a genius at laptop repair though. I'm a network engineer so I work on networks all day. My job isn't repairing laptops... so I'd like to think I can fix this issue. When I took apart the laptop, there was no dust or anything clogging up the laptop. It was pretty darn clean. |
I'm not trying to make myself sound too good. If I was an awesome laptop repair tech, I wouldn't be posting this.... but at the same time, I've had a lot more training than the average joe. At my last job, they made me become HP laptop certified but beyond the cert, I never was asked to repair laptops for them. But when it comes down to it, they're not that complicated. It just doesn't make sense if it's not dirty inside, I changed the thermal grease, and the fans all work, why is it overheating? Only other option I can think of is the motherboard is providing too much voltage to the CPU which causes it to run hotter. But I highly doubt it. And, maybe I'm just being over procautious... maybe 80-90 degrees celsius isn't hot at all for that processor. When I suspect it overheated, I wasn't running the program to see how hot it was at the time. I only know how hot it is running now and when I've found by Googling what the temp should be... but I haven't really found anything 100% concrete saying it should run between this and this temp and if it reaches such and such a temp, it is obviously overheating.
