I bought a brand new HP notebook: HP Pavilion dv7-6b21em BeatsAudio edition. The notebook is about 2 months old and has pretty nasty overheating problem.
I mainly use it for development however i do play some games. The disturbing thing is that the computer is loud on pretty simple tasks.
Here are the specs:
CPU: Intel Core i7-2670QM QuadCore ( 8 threads ) @ 2.20 GHz
RAM: ( 8GB ) 2x 4GB @ 1066
HDD: 1TB 7200
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 6770M 1GB Dedicated DDR
OS: Windows 7 64bit Enterprise
I have an external monitor runing on VGA port an 22' Samsung SyncMaster S24B300
CPU Heat Statistics
Platform: rPGA 988B (Socket G2)
Frequency: cca. 3000 Mhz
VID: 1.1809 - 1.2059 v
TDP: 45.0 Wats, Lithographu: 32 nm
Tj. Max: 100*C, Power 4.5 - 5.9 Wats
Core #0: 63*C Load on all is about 0 to 2%
Core #1: 65*C
Core #2: 66*C
Core #3: 67*C
I opened the notebook the fan is working fine there is no dust but still right now the fan is pretty loud even tho all i have open is FireFox. When i run a game the heat jumps to whopping 90-97*C. It has not shut down due to overheating yet but the loud fan is pretty annoying considering I'm not really doing anything stressfull.
Is there anything i can do to fix this is it maybe a BIOS issue ? I have all drivers updated tho to the latest. I have very few background processes running consuming bare 2GB of RAM and about 2% of CPU.
I had it serviced they said there is nothing wrong with it. But i feel that a Notebook that costs 1.2k Euros cant be like this.
