Microsoft Windows 11

I have HP Omen 16 r8 5800h with Rtx 3070. I own for a year now. I check laptop temperature everyday.When I last checked my GPU temperature it was around 45-50 degrees. The previous temperature was like 41 degrees. The same issue with an Integrated GPU.It was like 37-40 degrees and now it 45 -52.I was shocked because I clean my laptop with canned air and microfiber cloth in every 3 days. So it isn't dusty at all.I only use my laptop for coding. And my laptop always plugged in.So what can it be?A battery issue or something else?

Hi @Knuckle_455,

 

Welcome to HP Support Community.  


Thank you for posting your query, I will be glad to help you.

 

If your HP OMEN 16 laptop is experiencing overheating issues, there are several steps you can take to address the problem. Overheating can lead to reduced performance and potential long-term damage to your laptop, so it's important to address it promptly. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you resolve overheating issues.

 

  • Check for Dust and Debris: Over time, dust and debris can accumulate inside your laptop, blocking airflow and causing it to overheat. Turn off your laptop, unplug it, and remove the battery if possible. Then, open the laptop's casing and carefully clean out any dust and debris using compressed air or a soft brush. Pay special attention to the cooling fans and vents.
  • Place on a Hard, Flat Surface: Ensure that you're using your laptop on a hard, flat surface like a desk or table. Using it on soft surfaces like beds or couches can obstruct airflow and lead to overheating.
  • Adjust Power Settings: Lower your laptop's power settings to reduce the heat generated during use. On Windows, you can do this by going to "Power & Sleep Settings" and selecting "Additional power settings." Choose a power plan that's more balanced or power-saving.
  • Update Drivers and Firmware: Outdated or incompatible drivers can sometimes cause overheating issues. Check HP's website for driver and firmware updates for your laptop model and install any available updates.
  • Reduce Background Processes: Close unnecessary background applications and processes that may be running and consuming CPU and GPU resources. You can use the Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc) on Windows to monitor and close applications that are using too much CPU.
  • Use Cooling Accessories: Consider using external cooling accessories such as laptop cooling pads or laptop stands with built-in fans. These can help dissipate heat more effectively.
  • Monitor Temperatures: Install software like HWMonitor or Core Temp to monitor your laptop's temperature. This will help you identify if your laptop is indeed overheating and provide real-time temperature data.
  • Adjust Fan Speed: Some laptops allow you to manually control fan speed through the BIOS or dedicated software. Increasing fan speed can help with cooling, but it may also increase noise.
  • Undervolt the CPU/GPU: Undervolting involves reducing the voltage supplied to the CPU and GPU, which can lower their operating temperatures without a significant performance impact. This should be done cautiously, and it may require third-party software or BIOS adjustments.

 

Remember that laptops are designed to operate within certain temperature ranges, and some degree of heat is normal during intensive tasks. However, if your laptop consistently reaches temperatures that make it uncomfortable to use or causes performance issues, it's essential to take action to prevent potential damage.

 

I hope this helps. 
 

Take care and have a good day.
