I just bought a dell latitude e6510
full hd 15 inch display
9 cell battery
I am pretty happy with it has aluminium body and backlit keyboard too.
The only thing is the cpu is at around 75-80 C
It's my first laptop so i don't really know if i should worry about it.
These guys haven't given you an answer yet.
Air compressor, open the case up, blow on it to make sure nothing is gonna blow away, and then unload with the air compresser and clear the fucker out.
Also, idk how but apparently you should replace the thermal paste? I'm not sure how to do that on a laptop honestly, I always thought the heatseat was permanent
I have the same laptop. If you don't need the extra power, you can go into the bios and disable two of your cores. Its still runs really well and it uses a lot less power and produces a lot less heat. Most CPUs are rated to upwards of 100C. That's the danger zone.
Thanks Anon, my temp went down significantly. It goes up to a max of 73 now and 62 on average
Will still replace paste but this is good advice especially considering i don't do a lot of multitasking.
A good practice is elevating the laptop above the desk so that cool/fresh air can move uninhibited into the vents. I usually stick a coaster under the back corners to give some space for flow. Although I don't have the same model you do, this same idea practiced on the various laptops I've owned through the years yields a 5-10C difference (on average).
found your problem
turn this off via bios, and you will get 10cc less and a lot of more battery life, turn it on when you use video editing or some shit. What integrated graphics do you have?
As the creator of this tread, I just bought a HP 240 with the following characteristics:
Intel Celeron CPU N3050 @1.60Ghz (2 CPUs)
RAM: 4.0 Gb
Hard drive: 500Gb
Display: led 14"
This notebook has windows 8.1 64 bits :/ and honestly I do not like that OP But...
Do you think it is a good pc?. Currently I'm in the University and my plans are to use the HP just
for academic purpose, for example to install some programs like python, matlab, c++,etc.
Futhermore, I wonder if this notebook can run some old games with low or medium requirements (F.E.A.R, counter
strike, HALO 1,..)
I used the "dxdiag" comand ir order to watch some information about the computer and it shows me this:
name: intel(R) HD graphics
manufacturer: intel corporation
Chip: intel(R) HD graphics
Aprox memory: 1792 mb
Soo.. What do you think ???
