    I conducted this test using realtemp and prime 95.

    The only way to fix this issue is to use the device in an air conditioned space. Using it in a warm environment, causes very short lifespan.

    Thank you sir.

    I will do the same test with a better temperature and post my result.

    It really will not change the fact that the room is hot that you are using the computer in. You are basically baking your laptop to an early death.

    yes sir, i will keep that in mind. my laptop is 9 months old.

    its pretty hot around this time of the year(summer ends in 2-3 days, that's when i will test it again). the temperature was 44C hot some days ago. i can do nothing about it except not playing games during these days.

    sorry for my bad english and thank you for the feedback.

    We Americans, and some other people, are a bit spoiled thinking most people have air conditioning. I don't envy you those temps without it. I hope you have cooler days ahead.

    Your English is much better than my Hindi, which is none.

    When it gets hot in the room and none of the extra coolers work, consider reducing the maximum processor state of the used power plan:

    By default it's set to 100% and allows the CPU in turbo mode that easily exceeds 3Ghz depending on cpu model.
    Here as an example it's set to 80% which slighty reduces performance, disabling turbo mode but considerably reduces temperature as well.

    Tip:
    Play with the value: 70% - 80% - 90% as long as the cpu has a clock step for the value and the game performance is acceptable to you.
    Create a new power plan named something like 'Cooler' based on your current power plan and set the processor state there, this way you can switch back easily when you need to.

    Good luck.

    Some people have used the Gel Packs inside of a laptop cooler, to help keeping it cool. Some people have also set up on the cheap A/C units, by having a recirc pump pushing Ice cold water through a radiator that used to be a heater core for a car, and have a fan blow across the core, to push cool air.

    I have been in the same situation of being in a mobile home with no a/c. During the day, it would get up to 110 deg. Fahrenheit. At that time I was used to it, because of being deployed around Central America on the ship I was stationed on.

    There are plenty of sites that show you how to build a laptop chiller, that slides in on the side where the heat sink for the fan is located. All it takes is ingenuity to come up with one that will work for you.

    I don't have that option...

    I noticed that power saver mode reduces clock speed. At that time, if i play games(with adapter disconnected), the temperature doesn't get above 80C. Checking the clock speed in HWinfo64 shows lower clock speed(no turboboost).

    if i plug in the charger, no matter which power plan i use, the clock speed increases and reaches ~95C, irrespective of the game.

    i took the laptop to an AC room today. and played a game for about 1 hour. strangely, there was not even 1C drop in temperature. it still showed ~95C. apparently i have used all temperature measuring softwares, and all show the same thing.

    its funny, 95C never feels "that" hot when i touch the surface above the fan, both in non AC and AC rooms( in the non AC room it feels slightly hotter than the AC room). and when i check the nvidia gpu temperaure, it shows maximum 81C both in non AC and AC rooms. the intel gpu temperature averages at 95C. in the AC room, my touchpad(ice cool technology) was still feeling cool when the temperature was showing 95C.

    when i exit the game, the temperature suddenly drops to 70(within 2-3 seconds) and returns to normal temperature very quickly.

    prior to posting here, i talked to someone who also bought the same model laptop, and he was also getting high temperatures.. my laptop is 9 months old, he bought his laptop after me. he ran the game for a very short period and he was getting 92C. is it a software related bug? because the laptop actually doesn't feel that hot

    K450JN has some pretty tough specs.

    But unavailable power options it's weird, so far I've never encountered it. Must be the 'new' way they use on some new machines... somehow the options are hidden but should exist.

    - Check other power plans, beginning with the standard ones from Windows.

    - Have you clicked the 'change settings that are currently unavailable' option?

    - You can also try to import my 'Cooler' - 80% cpu power plan from attachment to see if it works.

    How to import a power plan and more is found here:
    Power Plans - Export and Import - Windows 7 Help Forums
    I've exported using the same tutorial.

    Cheers,
