Hi,I have been using Windows 10 and am getting a problem with overheating.when I use VSO convertXtoDVD to do a video conversion which is quite CPU intensive ocassionally Windows 10 will Shut down my Laptop and I never had this problem as much when I was using Windows 7.

Could Windows 10 be my problem or do you think it maybe a hardware issue?

My Laptop fan is working fine but the laptop is getting quite hot.

I ran speedfan after a shutdown and my cpu temps were roughly 56Cfor one core and 57C for the other at idle.

I also ran speedfan while using convertX and during the conversion the cpu temps increased to 96C on one core and 97C on the other is this way too hot or should it beable to cope with these temps?

96-97ºC will shut your system down in a heartbeat.

Make sure that you've blown out all dirt from the system with canned air (a vacuum or an aircompressor may damage the system).

Also, try using a laptop cooling pad.

Beyond that, if you're technically able, open up the system and reapply thermal paste to the CPU cooler.
While you're in there, clean out all dust/dirt/furballs/etc

 

Have you checked to see if your version of the VSO converter is compatible w/W10?

And if others are having similiar problems (check their forums for that).

The first thing I done was attack the vents with a can of air as they were a bit blocked but it has only slightly helped and I have been using a cooling pad for the past year so I think like you say the cpu might need re-seated.

I had this same probem maybe a year or so ago and asked about re-applying paste but was told it shouldn't need it although my laptop must be 5 years old now.

The laptop has been dropped in the past a couple of times,could that do anything to affec the cpu thermal seat?

I have fitted a cpu to a desktop but I'm not to keen on working with laptops....I'll get out the user manual and see how awkward it'll be to get to the cpu and may attempt it myself.

thanks for the help!

Dropping it is more likely to have unseated the CPU than the thermal compound drying out.

Some laptops are relatively easy to open up - some are really difficult.

Good luck!
