Re: T60/X1400: Powerplay kicks in at 80C?

My three month old T60 has a new problem. Sometimes when I'm playing a game like World of Warcraft, the framerate suddenly slows down. If I restart the game it works fine for awhile. The effect is unpredictable. It happens when I'm plugged into AC power. I have the Thinkpad power settings all for m...

Ok this puts me in a direction to solve the problem. I'll try removing/reinstalling the ibm power management software. i've also got MobileMeter and Fan Control utilities, i can imagine they could be doing any harm. The odd thing is that I havent really installed any software that would possibly hav...

Ok, back to the issue at hand. I have realized that the speed of my fan is not being properly set! When the laptop is plugged in, the fan barely spins!!! When I plug the power out, the fan begins to spin and the temperature is lowered to 50 C. This is so whacked! At which point did this break? I did...

Sounds like you need to clean with compressed air the fan fins, and clean overall the heatsink. Would not be a bad idea to replace the thermal compound on the CPU with Zalman STG or Arctic Silver 5. Is your GPU running hot too? im not sure the temp. for the GPU, I use Mobile Meter, and that doesnt ...

No there are no software problems... my system is in top form. Even in windows almost idle, CPU temperature is at 70+ C. Something is obviously [censored] up, most likely on the hardware side.

I've reinstalled windows, installed all the drivers plus the ThinkVantage Access Connections. However, Its not being used versus MS Wireless Network Connections. I dont see the tray Icon. Is this the same problem with WLAN not appearing in the Fn+F5 menu?
