Thread: ssystem shuts down because CPU reached mx. temp using VLC and pulse audio

  1. #1

    Default ssystem shuts down because CPU reached mx. temp using VLC and pulse audio

    I have had several times the case that my OpenSuse 12.1 on my Toshiba Satellite laptop, dual core with approx 1.5 GB of RAM instantly shuts down prompting me that it reached max. CPU temp. I Used only VLC and in teh background pulse audio as default. IT hapenned with watching video and listening mp3 only.
    Please advise

    Thanks,

    Veki

    Well, if your system managed to get hot enough to shut down you may want
    to consider better-ventilating your computer. I've had this happen once
    with 12.2 when I put it in an unventilated space and left it idle. It
    took a while and the logs clearly showed the temperature increasing
    until the system shutdown to prevent damage. Besides a better location,
    maybe you need to check your heat dissipation stuff in your computer.

    Good luck.

    I always wondered if previous to that limit situation the OS (the
    kernel, rather) can not take measures like slowing down the cpu or
    inserting idle ops. :-?

    THis does not happen with other applications regardless of duration of work of computer. Thus, I can download formany hours files and use Libre Office, etc. and everything works fine. BUt, using VLC with Pulse audio stops computer after 20 -30 minutes.

    Yes, but I got message that CPU down and that system is going down and that is all. And that is due to normal playingg mp3 files or watching ordinary movie without any other application openned at tthe time. (i.e. Libre Office, GIMP or so.)

    it is a cooling problem...if your machine is over (say) six months old
    check the Toshiba site for recommended cleaning frequency for your
    machine...do what they say do (probably blow out the cooling channels,
    or or or or....or, in extreme cases it might be required to do
    more....or maybe just place the laptop on a hard surface (soft surfaces
    can BLOCK air intake vents)..

    The system works fine for several hours heavy loaded without any problems, but its huts down after 30-40 minutes after playback on mp3 or video in VLC using pulse audio.

    You said that (or similar) several times already.

    Several people advised you to check the system, open it, look for dust, etc. Now when you refuse to do so and report back and keep answering like the above, both sides can go on forever IMHO.

    Hello, I did not say that I refuse. I am just enmphasizing that system works sometimes for a long time beaing heavily loaded without any issue. By the way, my laptop is cleaned mon a regular basis. I am focusing on ceratin situation when it shuts down.
    Thus, I expect that someone can direct me to investigate that certain situation instead of repeatedly saying common things neglecting what I stated and focused on.

    Thanks,

    I read such threads several times and always it is like someone is
    complaining about some piece of software which makes the system overheat.

    Whatever a software does and whatever is wrong with it (if there is
    something wrong at all), even if it drives all cpu cores to 100% load
    over hours and also the graphics card - a system which is ok can never
    overheat - period (as long as you run it in an environment it was
    designed for and not in tropical heat or in a bakery).

    If it does the hardware is not ok (dust, fans, sensors ... whatever) or
    it is a "driver" problem which prevents the cooling system to work the
    right way (not spinning up fans for example).

    This problem has to be identified and solved not (first step as
    diagnostic - cleaning).
    Everything else is most likely a side effect and cannot be solved in
    the software which seems to produce the crash.
