My Spectre 360 seems to be getting warm

HP Spectre 360 (gem cut)

I just purchased an HP Spectre 360 (Gem cut); it seems to be getting a bit warm. I thought the computer cools itself down on its own

Hi! @JoshuaESQ,


Are you using any high-end application or playing a graphic oriented game on your PC?


Please share the product number of the PC to assist you better.


Try updating windows to the latest version and check if it helps.


If you Gaming or using any high-end application the PC will raise the laptop temperature and if the vents are restricted that will increase the heat more. So if this laptop hasn't had the vents cleaned out for sometime this could result in Thermal overload and causing your laptop to shut down and worse case damage the system to point it no longer works.


Try updating the BIOS and Thermal framework client driver and check if it helps.


Try updating the drivers on your PC using the HP support assistant.


Refer this article to know more information about using HP support assistant.


To properly ventilate the computer, allow at least 7.6 cm (3 in) of clearance on the left side
of the computer. The computer uses an electric fan for ventilation. The fan is controlled by a temperature
sensor and is designed to turn on automatically when high-temperature conditions exist. These conditions
are affected by high external temperatures, system power consumption, power management/battery
conservation configurations, battery fast charging, and software requirements. Exhaust air is displaced
through the ventilation grill located on the left side of the computer.


Also, Try performing the following ts steps:
1 - Right-click on any open space on your computer's taskbar.
2 -Select "Task Manager" and press "Enter."
3 -Select "View" from the Taskbar Manager's pull-down menu. If more than one computer is connected to your network, notice the graphs for all CPUs. Select "One Graph Per CPU." This will help determine which computers are using more processing time.
4 -Go to the "Applications" tab. Because this tab shows open programs in real time, you will be able to see exactly when a program has been opened and closed at the time that it occurs. Identify and close selected programs by highlighting each one separately and clicking on "End Task" to free up processing time. (Important: Make sure all work is saved prior to closing any programs.)
5 -Go to the "Processes" tab and view them, but do not delete any of them unless absolutely necessary. All of the hidden system processes and programs are listed here. (Note: See Warnings section.)
6 -Set your computer's cooling fan to "Auto." Next, slide the Processing Speed scale to "3-4." Slide the Cooling Method scale to the middle of the range. These settings will slow down the CPU when needed


Lastly, Hit Win Key + R
Type in “Regedit” and then hit Enter.
Go to ‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management’
Find ‘ClearPageFileAtShutDown’ and change its value to 1
Restart the computer

Have a great day! 🙂
