When I was using Ubuntu or other Linux OS on my Laptop, I forgot about problems with overheating and sudden power off. This problem came up today, I was sitting in front of my computer and it suddenly power off brutally. I wasn’t doing much. I was watching a video in VLC player, playing Settlers Online in Google Chrome and an Antivirus full scan was performed. I know that is the overheat problem because my brother has the same laptop, only with Intel i3 processor, he isn’t a computer guy and likes playing games, so he used Windows all the time and some days ago he told me that his laptop overheats and power offs without warning.
I don’t know what could be the cause of this problem, but I think a simple solution is to reduce the CPU energy.
I have Windows 7 64bit Home Premium so I can’t change the displayed language, since I bought my laptop in Poland, the screenshots will be in Polish, but the options are in the same places for all languages.
I don’t know yet if it does help, I’ve ran some stress tests and the laptop stayed cool.
