Laptop suddenly shutdown due to overheat. Before my laptop suddently shutdown, my fan run faster. There any coding to overcome this problem? Hp pavillion g4-2029wm Ram 8gb How to solve this problem?
I have overheating problem with HP Pavilion g4-2002tx, it has switchable/hybrid graphics between Intel and AMD Radeon. However, it has never gotten sudden shutdown.
I just power off the AMD Radeon by sending
/sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch. Now, the thermal is about 63° C and I conclude that the problem is caused by the discrete graphics card, so just turn it off when it is not needed.
echo OFF | sudo tee /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch
sudo cat /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch:
Before turning off discrete graphics (AMD Radeon):
0:IGD:+:Pwr:0000:00:02.0 1:DIS: :Pwr:0000:01:00.0
After turning off discrete graphics (AMD Radeon):
0:IGD:+:Pwr:0000:00:02.0 1:DIS: :Off:0000:01:00.0
Hope it helps.
