I loaded up a tv network website and started playing a full episode video and within seconds the CPU temp shot up to 100C and the laptop turned off.

Nick. I loaded up a tv network website and started playing a full episode video and within seconds the CPU temp shot up to 100C and the laptop turned off. I've diagnosed it, replaced the part and all works well afterwards. #11 MobileTechie, Dec 13, 2011 schwags Expand Collapse Member Likes Received: 0 Location: Iowa I think Mobile Techie has Operating System not found. | Network connection issue » Thread Tools Show Printable Version Download Thread Search this Thread Advanced Search Similar Threads Thread Thread Starter Forum Replies Last Post Pentium http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f108/can-a-heatsink-really-go-bad-585466.html

Bad Heatsink Symptoms

I suspect the heatsink isn't transfering the heat to the fins... I reinstalled the fan (I did NOT remove the heatsink) and booted up.

it's a sealed pipe which means you'd have minimal to no evaporation of the fluid within the pipes. Think, 35-95 watts going through such a small piece of metal/silicon, of course its going to get very hot if you cripple the cooling system, like I said, you are very Checked the temperature again and noticed the CPU temperature was still going pass 80C. Fan is working fine.

Yes No Sorry, something has gone wrong. The dust reduces the cooling power of the heat sink by lessening the surface area available for cooling.

Bad Heatsink Symptoms The less efficient the heat sink becomes, the harder the computer's fan must work to reduce the system's temperature.

Working? Is it normal that the thermal compound in my cpu heatsink is powdered? I guess I already know the answer...if the heatpipe developed any kind of leak then it would become very ineffective.

Still overheats within minutes of doing something processor intensive such as watching video. Does that stuff go bad at all?>I found, with an old tube of no-name heat sink compound, that itseparated out, and needed transfer to a container for thorough mixingbefore use.(Less trouble Changed the fans in my Mac Book Pro about 8 months ago and now it's overheating again. Eventually, the fan will be unable to cool the CPU sufficiently; at this point, system errors may start to occur.

It is staying in the high 80's and low 90's with an Intel processor. Placing your laptop on a soft or uneven surface like a bed, or your lap whilst you are using it is frankly asking for trouble.

Islwyn holds a Bachelor of Arts in English from McGill University and a certificate in radio broadcasting from Humber College. Can I turn a laptop heatsink into a desktop heatsink with fan? You sure you're in deg F and not deg C? Dust accumulation on the heat sink causes it to become less efficient at drawing heat from the CPU.

Was this one just maybe defective from the factory or is this just a really craptastic design and replacing it will be pointless? Here's is what I've done: 1. If you wanted to see the temps of heatsink, if you had somekind of digital temp guage with wires, well then you just put that in there, so you could actually Resources (3) CPUID: HWMonitorCore TempSpeedFan: Download About the Author Seamus Islwyn has been writing for radio, print and online publications since 2003, covering subjects from independent Canadian music to automobile smuggling

Basically, I have an unopened tube of heatsink compound that I was thinking of using. If your computer starts experiencing unexplained instability, especially in conjunction with excessive fan noise -- and you've ruled out malware or other software problems as the cause -- check the heat it is unwise to charge a laptop whilst using it. Seems to me like something else is wrong there.
