Hi guys, need some help.
My laptop (HP dm4 1125tx) seems to have heating problems but not so sure about it. The idling temperatures is fine, usually going between 45-55C. Considering that I am in a tropical country (usual temp according to Accuweather is from 25-33C, RealFeel ranging from 30-40C depending on current humidity) and that I recently moved to a new apartment with no AC yet, those temperatures seem fine. However, doing even a very small amount of activity spikes the temperatures. Right now I only have Chrome running actively, 3 tabs on this forum, and temperatures are spiking up and dropping down intermittenty between 60-98C. I'm a bit worried as that is very close to the TjMax. However I am a bit confused as idling temps are normal, so it appears that so far the cooling system works. I also currently am using a cooling fan under my laptop. I'm not very knowledgeable about hardware, but the only thing I can think of is maybe the thermal paste needs replacing? Just need advice if my guess is correct. I'll just have this taken to the shop and have it done if that's the case. I mean does this say that the hardware is fine or is there something saying that I should prepare for hardware issues?
