Thanks 123Runner.
I had a really bad day yesterday. Ended up sitting on the highway for over 3 hours with a blown tire and 3 busted lug nuts. Finally made it home about 5 this morning and got about 3 hours of sleep.
I don't know how CpuZ got into this but your pic is what I am looking for.


i hate to hear this i looked at your profile one time and saw your state so i know you must of had an awful time with the heat and being stranded. i live in a very hot start and spend allot of time working outside too.
glad that you made it of but i hate that know one helped you out because 3 hours is a long time to wait. allot can happen.

if i gave you the info that you needed then please understand that i am very patient so take all the time that you need. you have already tought me allot up to this point. i am very thankful.

We still need the HWMonitor like what I showed in a previous post. The CPU Z does us no good when we are trying to verify temperatures between a few programs.

Please redo the instructions for post 56 on HWMonitor and include what 123Runner shows in post 59 for the temps.
Thanks for the kind words and yes I am trying just a little worn out today.

The fan on CPU itself will not turn off as that is what keeps it cool. If it turns off then the cpu overheats and shuts down.
Please download and run Hardware Monitor
Installation (setup version only)

Run the setup executable file, and let it guide you for the installation process. The setup installs a service, that is started the first time that you run HWMonitor.
Take a screenshot once the program is done and attach it to your next reply. I'm looking for the temps to verify with Speedfan to make sure there is no overheating issue.
Just a double check for my own sanity I guess.


wheni clickon the link that you have given me i am not sure which link that you want me to install. it is a little confusing to me. can you take a screen shot of which one orsomething. i am downloading another item but i am not sure if it is the rite one.

Microsoft updates?
The fan issue i believe it is just normal being a laptop for it to run like it is. They are smaller and mor compact so cooling is essential to it.
