As the title says, my Satellite A665 is overheating. I bought it a while ago, but it did this from the beginning. I did not expect to buy a EUR 2000,- laptop and have these issues. I only have these issues when I'm rendering and all the cpu's are maxed out.
Any solutions? I would even want to trade this laptop in for a new one..
yes my laptop just shuts down.
I'm running the latest bios, and the fans are just doing their job I guess. Temperature is rising and ofcourse overheating, dont have any monitoring software.
The only abnormal use for a laptop would be throwing it in the water while connected to the AC power.
any other use is normal, so even playing games but also pegging out all the CPU's with heavy programs, which i have.
I am not playing games on this one, but rather rendering on all CPU's or on the CUDA cores.
Both times the laptop overheated and just shuts down.
I'll look into the toshiba gpu driver. otherwise I'll contact support. This machina has been doing this since the first day, but its gets a bit worse after time. First Mental Ray rendering on this machine crashed it!! Not really happy with this.
You can do so much reasearch online, but with these new-ish machines there are no reviews on stress tests etc. So I would personally not recommend this laptop to heavy users at all...
I have the exact same issue and it's been a problem since day 1. Did you ever figure out a solution to the overheating on the toshiba A665? Myguess is it's because the air vents under the cpu area is not punched out. How can you cool down the cpu without air flow???
Thanks for your help. This has been driving me nuts!
