After Removing The Charger, PC Gets Overheated

by Romit90 / September 24, 2013 7:12 AM PDT

I have an hp pavilion dv6-3050tx, Running Windows-7 64 bit. Few days back I had changed my battery as my earlier battery was not able to provide backup more than 5min. But after inserting the new battery I am facing a problem.
As soon as I unplug the charger. The system temperature increases exponentially and soon after that the PC gets into Hibernation.
It happens only when the pc is running over battery. While after connecting the charger system temperature again comes to normal.
Plz Help me out with it...

Let's start with a basic item.

When was the last time you used the canned air?

If the answer is either never or what is canned air, catch up on what it is and get it done.

I cleaned the fan and also applied thermal paste, but the problem is still there. And the main thing is, it happens only when the pc is running over battery, on Plug-in I have used my pc for 3-4 hours continuously and its running smoothly. But as soon as I unplugged the charger, the fan starts moving faster and the system starts heating up and soon after some time the pc automatically gets into hibernation due to overheating.

That the problem is with hardware or software.... Coz when the adapter is connected pc works absolutely f9.. and the temperature varies between 32-37. But as soon as i disconnect the charger the temperature raises exponentially... And after few minute it get hibernated.
when i start the system again it shows the following note:

"The system bios has detected your notebook PC was placed in hibernation to avoid overheating.
The system is now operating normally and your data should remain intact.

Overheating may occur if the cooling vents are blocked or the operating temperature exceed the specification. The notebook PC should return to normal operation once the situation is resolved.

System Temperature (90D)"

Since this is an i7 based laptop.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / September 24, 2013 9:08 AM PDT shows more but this is a first gen i7 and will overheat. Yes I know this model.

OK, there are reasons for the CPU to go into overdrive on power removal but I'm not going to guess what's different from stock and move to a quick fix (not to be confused with a cure.)

Reduce the CPU Core count to 4. Here's how.

After that you can repeat the power pull but look at the Task Manager to see what's maxed out the CPU.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
