Hello

 

This is my first so I hope this is the correct section.

 

After being loyal to windows 7 for loooong time I have decided to upgrade to windows 10 and I did not regret it till few days ago.

My laptop goes crazy hot but Task Manager shows like none CPU usage while Speccy shows rather high CPU usage and temperature.

 

Here some ss:

Speccy

Spoiler

Task Manager

Spoiler

 

Now I really don't understand how can this be so different in results?

I start task manager my right clicking on task manager and Run Task Manager or ctr+alt+delete combo

 

It's not dust on the fan for overheating since I did cleaning few weeks ago.

 

 

 

Thanks for help

I don't understand why you think that 65° C is "crazy hot" on an Intel i5-2340m.  The T-Junction temperature for this CPU is 100° C, and you're light years cooler than that.  Running temperatures in the high 40s-mid50s at rest and up to the 80s when really, really stressed are well within normal limits for this CPU. 

 

I also don't understand what you think you're comparing across Speccy results and Task Manager results.

Well I can see that my machine is hot and the "indicator" keeps blinking on idle which means it's working on something but CPU is on 1-5% usage

 

So I'm confused how can it be on 1-5% usage?

 

When on Speccy is indicates it's hot and almost constantly on 100%.

 

Also now even graphics card is overheating... There were some Microsoft Updates I think...

Again, 65° C is not hot, it's barely warm-ish, for your CPU.  No matter how many times you insist that this is hot won't make it so.  This is so far below the maximum allowed operating temperature that the manufacturer specifies is the highest temperature it can tolerate that it's silly to call it hot.

 

The indicator that I'm guessing you're talking about is probably the disc activity indicator.  It is entirely possible to have high disc activity and low CPU activity at the same time.  It's common, in fact, under a number of circumstances.

 

Speccy does not show "hot" anything and I have no idea where in those results you think that usage as a percentage of total capacity is being shown - it isn't.

 

I can't speak to anything about your graphics card.

From what you've just said I can freely assume it's this darn Nvidia GeForce GT 540M again. 

Had issues with it on win 7 and now with upgrading everything was working fine.

 

Thanks for replying

Next time you want to see what's using CPU, click the Details tab, that tells you what is using CPU and Memory.
