Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Laptop overheating and then shutting down

Hey Guys,

My System shuts down when using UE4. There is no BSOD or anything and it doesn't generate any dump files either. This happens only when I'm running it with nVidia GPU. If I switch to Intel HD, it runs fine (slower, but it doesn't crash or anything)

I used Open Hardware Monitor to see if CPU is over heating - here's something I noticed. When using nVidia GPU, my CPU temp is around 10C more (around 85C+). Probably why it shuts down?

Has anyone faced this issue?

Specs: CPU : i7 3610QM (Quad core with hyper threading)


OS : Win 7 64-Bit

GPU: nVidia GeForce GT 630M

Product Version: Not Selected

85C is too high the termal protection probably kicks in and shut downs the computer

Is there setting / tool I can use so that it warns me when a certain temperature exceeds?

In BIOS if in anything, but really running components on 85C is not healthy for them so instead of removing the limit, you should think how to lower the temperature. Usually some laptops start to overheat due to age as vents gathers more and more dust and components starts to not be cooled properly, you could also check if you vents has open space to gather air. Either way best would be to do what Paul saying, contact ASUS, the might help you out :)

Can you tell us what machine this is? We can't promise any help with hardware problems like this, but we do have contacts at Nvidia and other hardware companies so we can try and make folks aware if we know who to contact.

It's an ASUS Laptop. K55VM is the model I think. Other specs in my post. Is there any other info needed that'll be useful?

No thank you. I don't have Asus contacts, but i'll share this info with Nvidia. It wouldn't hurt for you to share the info you have with Asus support.

I googled, and looks like many users are having the same problem with the model. It's like 2 yrs old now.. guess I'm f**d :P Thanks for the help anyway :)
