Experiencing Frequent LapTop Power Cuts [UNSOLVED]

Recommended Posts

Theres always task manager to close any unwanted programs that eat up your CPU. This can cause your computer to overheat, and might even lag your RuneScape.

 

My thoughts exactly.

As you guys are saying, it's possible that it's a battery problem. However, I think it would be a good idea to run a few tests first.

 

You can download this program called Memtest (http://www.memtest86.com). Follow the instructions on the website to test your ram for problems

 

Then I'd suggest downloading both Realtemp (temperature monitoring program) and Intel Burn Test. Open Realtemp and then do a burn test using all your cores at 100%. Make it go through multiple cycles. This will make your CPU work at max capacity and you'll be able to see of your CPU is getting too hot. I'd be worried about anything over 60C.

 

Also, to check for viruses I'd suggest getting Malwarebytes. The free version is great and will find viruses that many other paid programs won't find. Use it with your current program for double checking.

 

Hope this helps!

A laptop naturally runs a bit hotter than a desktop, and Intel Burn Test actually overworks the CPU, so I say temperatures are ok until the high 60s/low 70s on the Intel Burn Test.

Yeah but at the same time it could be full of dust or the thermal paste could need replacement which could cause the laptop to not work properly.

That's one the first possibilities that were mentionned in this thread or a previous one, iirc.

Yeah, I know. I was just giving some methods I've used to troubleshoot such a problem. I always feel like it's a good idea to test your current hardware for trouble before going and purchasing new components in case it's something small like thermal paste or a faulty stick of RAM.

Firstly, my apologies for forgetting to add a conclusion to this thread. My laptop has been operating normally for the past month(s) so I conclude it must of been overheating or the like. However, I plan to look for a newer laptop mainly for productivity/school which I may create a thread regarding it.

 

I request that a moderator lock this thread as we've come to a conclusion. Thanks everyone!  :pray:
