Amilo A1650g the overheater

Recently I've been having some serious overheating issues with this awful laptop (the main reason for the hatred is the video card).

I didn't understood why all of a sudden, Feisty has become "heavy" as have suse and mandriva.... well, suse was already heavy to begin with. tried: Mandriva 2007.1 (spring), Opensuse Gnome 10.3 beta 2, Ubuntu Feisty and Gutsy...

I used acpi -t to track the temperatures and I was able to reach 87 Celsius degrees and have occasional shutdowns (+90 degrees)...

And yesterday I found out why.

My laptop's cooling ribs were clogged up for good - I even found a feather there. I disassembled the largest panel in the back of the laptop and then just the fan (without the cooling ribs). I used a slightly wet cue-tip to clean the fan side of the cooling ribs. The amount of dust there were unbelievable!

Now I'm glad to say that it's working again at nominal temperatures. WinXP in Virtualbox helped me reach a nice temperature of 67 Celsius degrees. It's sad though that if I ran Firefox into a site with a rich flash content - I'll reach 75 Celsius degress, which is much higher then running a virtual machine. Someone have to make the flash plugin better!

I had the same problem, however, take the heatsink off completely and you will find the crap paste FSC used has leeched out, I got some white RS heatsink compound applied sparingly (half a rice grain) spread thin so it is almost translucent and I get 47-65C

Ditto I did the same, lasted 3months, try argent (silver paste, it gets the same result but lasts longer. By which time the fan needs cleaning anyway. About the 4th time since 2005.
