High temperature on my Qosmio F20 149

Hello world.

From the beginning, my Q F20 149 develops a rather high temperature on the left side of the keyboard as it is on the low side and left around the exit of the fan.

Although it doesn't seem to be higher than the Q20 exposed in the MediaMarkt store in Berlin, where I bought it, it always bothers me. (In the shop, the system has worked for hours on end in TV mode - so the heat was partially understandable)

My computer becomes so hot, you can hold your hand on it, but I think that "hot" is the appropriate word.
I downloaded PC Wizard 2006 and checked the temperature of CPU - approx. 30-40 ° C without any charge and upward to 63C after some calculations, not just tough.

Can someone tell me what the CPU temperature can be considered critical? I changed the setting for the method of control of the CPU in the AutoCorrect energy saver. The result was 100% CPU usage, the temperature rises quickly.

So, anyone has an idea on the amount of heat is good or not good for the CPU and the system as a whole?

[Edited by: admin]


Believe me, the heat on the side of the unit is a normal problem.
The Qosmio is a portable high-tech with a very high CPU and the use of the graphics card.
I read on some sites that the CPU temperature could go to a 70-80 degrees Celsius.
This higher temperature is possible if the CPU and other devices operate at 100% for example if you play games.
As San Remo said enjoy your laptop really nice ;)

  • Qosmio F20-149: I accidently deleted the folder Power Saver


    I have problems with the energy saver, but I could not uninstall and reinstall so I deleted the whole directory... an error! So can someone download me its Repertory Powersaver so I uninstall etc still files once and I can uninstall correctly it!

    I have a Qosmio F20-149, but with luck another Qosmio Version will do as well, too!

    thx for the help

    I don't think it's a good idea to install files to watch foreign power on your operating system.
    I recommend you to download the energy saver (if you have it t n), and then install it again.
    If the installation does not start because of missing files, so you must first enter in the registry, and then delete all entries of power gain.
    And repeat the installation procedure.

  • Tuner not found on the Qosmio F20-149

    Hello world

    I have a Qosmio F20-149. After the transfer of my place of residence in another city in the same country) I suddenly see that my media reports "tuner not found" when I try to access the TV. Also, when I try to configure the internet connection, I get an error message of the MC asked me to restart the computer or contact technical support. Can someone help me with this?

    thanking you in anticipation.
    Best wishes.


    I'm not an expert but tuner not found message cannot occur without any reason. There seems to be some hardware related issue and has nothing to do with your home.

    If you are 100% sure that everything was ok a few days ago, I recommend you to roll back OS to an earlier time using System Restore tool. Please also check status of TV tuner in Device Manager? Is this all is well?

    Qosmio F20 is a laptop upscale with a heavy performance.
    The strong CPU and graphics card produce a lot of heat, which increases the temperature. It must be cooled. The fact is that for cooling this laptop you need a high-end modules, and cooling fans. These fans make a noise.
    There is a possibility to control the fans. In the energy saver, you'll find options that are responsible for the use of the CPU and fans.

    There, they show a firmware for my DVD 840 years! Why? Where to find a firmware for my drive?



    There are different models Qosmio F20 and so I guess that the units were delivered with different drives. Maybe the update of the firmware doesn t exist for UJ-840 years.

    But a question; Why do you want to update the firmware?

    Post edited by: MrG

    Hello MrG

    I was very interested about your previous assignment and I have to say I wonder what you do with your Qosmios when questions still outstanding.

    In any case, I know the start if the BIOS supports booting from PCMCIA, maybe it will work, but I guess on your Qosmio, it is not possible.

    Can you please give me more info on the operating system installed on the external HARD drive? It is the same image as on F20 or some other HDD portable?

  • Qosmio F20-149: remote control and Win XP pro

    First of all, Hello and sorry for my English.

    My question is if it's possible to get the work of infrared remote control in windows xp professional.

    The only thing I can do is volume up & down, but good... for sure that I have all things... like skip, play, stop and so on.

    I need driver? Or other things? Special settings?

    Thanks for your help!

    Marko Jakobi / Boton

    Hi Marko

    I'm sure that it will be not possible. There is no particular setting that allows this option and also separate driver is not known to me.

    If you want to use skip, play, stop, and another option how you want to configure with which application it must works. Sorry, but I think that there is nothing to do.

  • Qosmio F20 won't start - power light flashes orange

    My Qosmio F20-149 crashed yesterday and I was not able to get it working again. When I try to turn it on, the power light flashes on and outside (on: 1 sec, off: 1 sec) and the cooler fan operates at full power. When I press a key, there is a genre or a sound error. otherwise no reaction of the laptop; even the CD player does not open.

    I did no RAM-implementation to date, and I use the original power supply Toshiba. I tried from the laptop using only the battery, only power and on both. No change in the reaction. I tried all possible combinations (with a free one, both... etc) of my two cards, RAM (512 + 512) and still no use.

    I am really puzzled.

    If I understand you just your laptop sends a blink code. Copy the following code appears so laptop has detected a problem with the electronic power supply.
    In this case, there is nothing that you can do and the laptop must be sent to the service provider allowed the closest.

    They have manuals containing instructions and the exact description of the code how do I solve this problem.
    Sorry, buddy, but I do not think that anyone here can offer an accurate diagnosis for that matter.

    You can find in the management tool of power under the method of cooling setting of the cooling fan.
    Try to set it to the lower level. I know that cooling fan is sometimes too loud, but you must know that you have high technology with powerful hardware components unit. Material is placed on the square and must be properly cooled to avoid damage.

    I really put t whether a tool can show you the temperature of the CPU. Check in the advanced search if you can find a similar topic. Long ago, I read the discussion on this subject.
