MSI Laptop Overheating Since Windows Reset

  Daniel Banks 01:47 24 Dec 2016

About a year ago I bought the MSI GE62 2QF Apache Pro gaming laptop, it worked great at first and was rather quiet, but recently its been a very different story. Around a month ago I was having issues with a windows update breaking DX11, forcing me to reinstall Windows 10. Since that reset I have been experiencing some serious overheating. Right now the CPU is at 62 degrees and the fan is spinning at 3550 RPM with one webpage open and nothing else. I've ran several benchmarks and games where the CPU reaches up to 92 degrees with both fans run unbearably loud at full speed. Before you say yes I have tried cleaning it.

If you do have any solutions or ideas please do respond.

Thank You.

Do you allow air to get into it for cooling i.e. not using it on your lap/on your bed or on a carpet.

How did you try to clean it?

Simply blowing air in the exhaust vents does very little you will probably have to open up the laptop and clean the fan and heatsink properly.

The laptop is on a stand on my desk so none of the cooling vents are blocked, as for disassembling it it's something I'm reluctant to do but I will try it.
