Flex 14 Overheating

I have been having overheating problems for the past few days, with my Flex 14, which has reduced my battery life to 1/3 of what it used to be (2 hours now, compared to 6 hours before). The fan has just been on all the time. I have been using SpeedFan to check the Temperatures of the CPU and the GPU, which are 70, and 61 degrees Celsius respectively.
I only got this laptop in February of this year, and I really need it during this time for exams.
Solved!
Go to Solution.

Check your Google Chrome Extensions and/or plug-ins as well. If issues still continue to exist with Google Chrome, uninstall Google Chrome, and then install it again.
You could also try these settings to reduce overhead, in my opinion these features are not necessary, and my browsing experience is fine without them. These settings will reduce overall load. There are plenty of things you can try here.
Keep in mind you can always use Internet Explorer during your exams and figure it out later if you don't find the problem in time. Or perhaps Firefox.

  • Ideapad Flex 2-14D: Fan constantly running at high speed: Windows 8.1

    Hello. I have an Ideapad Flex 2-14D running Windows 8.1 and actual drivers.The fan runs constantly at high speed. So I have not to complaint about overheating, but instead I have to complaint about getting cold knees. Is there a possiblity to adjust fan speed? Best regards Eleichstetten

    I've tried SpeedFan and looked through all the Lenovo programs, but there's no way that I can find for tuning the fan. My ghetto hack is to limit the CPU to 70% max (with Passive as the cooling scheme), which keeps the fan well under control.
    Fan adjustment should be a standard feature in 2015. It's not expensive and definitely not difficult to implement.

  • Flex application running under AIR takes a long, long time to start.

    I have a flex application which runs on a desktop under AIR. The application has an assets folder with 3,500 mp3 soundclips totalling about 50MB. The problem is, the application takes around 90 seconds to load. I'm sure that AIR is scanning the application folder and doing something with the contents because if I delete the assets folder it loads in about 5 seconds. Does anyone know why AIR/Flex would do this, and why it doesn't exhibit the same problem if I run or debug in Flexbuilder on eclipse? It's making my killer app unusable!
    Thanks
    Paulo

    Well, I've spent a bit longer looking at this now, and the problem appears to lie with my encrypted local store. The first thing that happens is for the app to read the product key from the ELS. But, it fails (for some unknown reason). So, the app seems to hang there for 90 seconds until it eventually renders the welcome screen. If I remove the assets folder it still fails to read from the ELS, but only takes a couple of seconds to start the welcome screen. This is where the scanning of the application folder seems to come into play, because if I remove the code which reads from the ELS the app starts within 2 seconds whether the asset folder is there or not.
    I think the slow startup and the scanning of the assets folder are just symptoms of a different problem, i.e. a problem with the ELS. I don't have the same problem with my development environment though - it's only when I test deploy the application.
    Thanks for your help on this problem EgorKDie. I think I should be able to resolve it once I can sort out why the ELS is being awkward.

  • Is there a way of working collaboratively on a flex project with a small project group?

    Is there a way of working collaboratively on a flex project with a small project group?
    I am part of a small group of developers who wish to work on a single flex project together. Is there a way to set up flex so that the project can be developed by multiple people at the same time. I have seen one thread out on the internet about working locally and then uploading to SVn but this is not an option in this case.
    Any ideas.
    Many thanks in advance
    Dave

    I would say that rushing into development without a source-control system will cost you more in the long-run. If your organisation is serious about developing software it then it needs to invest in the necesary infrastructure, so you should get that process kicked-off as soon as possible.
    In the interim you could set-up a source control server on one developer's machine or commandeer a spare machine to use as a temporary source control server. Just make sure you have it backed-up regularly. Or you could use one of the online source control services; many will support private repositories for a small fee.

    Geolocation isn't supported in the Emulator. You'll have to set up a test case that gives the geolocation without relying on the Emulator.

  • Error in executing a process for Flex compilation ....exceeds 32K...

    Hi,
    deployin my model i get the following error-message.
    "Error in executing a process for Flex compilation, Error: Branch between 64935 and 97770 around line 0 exceeds 32K span. If possible, please refactor this component.
    Error: Branch between 64935 and 97770 around line 0 exceeds 32K span."
    Do i delete a sort-element from my model it is deployed very well. So what does this message exactly mean and how can I locate where the error occurs and how can i fix that problem because i need this sort-element to be in my model.
    Thanks for your help!
    Tobias

    Hi Tobias,
    You are receiving this error due to a current limitation in the Flex server. How you can fix this is to split the iView you are currently working on into two iViews, and embed one within the other. This will decrease the size of the current iView you are receiving the error for and eliminate this problem.
    Hope this helps
    Cheers,
    Scott

    Hi Ameya,
         If its VC 7.0 then you must be using Flash Compiler.Try changing the compiler to Flash at this path
    Tools->Options->Compiler->Change 'Runtime filed to Flash'.I hope this should solve your problem.

  • Flex launching error on Windows Vista (Windows No Disk - exception ....

    Hi guys, I downloaded the flex builder from adobe, I install the application but when I'am trying to lauch my application I get the error
    Windows - No Disk ... exception processing message 0xc0000013
    I reinstall adobe flash and my java runtime, I still get the same error, I can create an application but I can't execute it, that's sucks!
    I check on adobe in the faq for flex, they say that error occurs when you install the application from a DVD, that's not true, I downloaded from their site....
    thanks

    Ok guys, I found it myself, very strange!
    I just change my default workspace to another one, I got the same problem then I just put back the default workspace and the problem was resolved!

  • Using Flex 2 for dynamic creation of a Flex 2 application at runtime

    We're looking to replace our existing end-user development
    environment and believe Flex 2 may be able to satisfy our
    requirements. However, without spending a month trialing the
    product I thought some existing user(s) could suggest (based on
    personal experience) whether we'd be straining Flex 2 in expecting
    it to be able to provide dynamic runtine generation and execution
    of an application based on the meta-data associated with each
    component. The generation of each component includes automatic form
    and code generation, with end-user tailoring facilities to maintain
    the meta-data (tabs, fields (visibility, location, business rules,
    actions, validation etc.), display format, drill-down, work-flow
    etc.), for use in the next instantiation of each conponent.

    I know of at least one of our customers (not sure if I can
    say which) is doing this. They use Flex to compose MXML files and
    then send that to a server. The server than compiles that into a
    SWF.
    So it is possible, just a lot of work.

    The application is taking a huge time to 'validate' each
    component in the UI and each time we observe a timeout at different
    UI component.
    Few observations from our end:
    1. The application is very straight forward and only thing
    complex in it is UI layout. There are a few of complex layouts,
    viewstacks and datagrids used.
    2. The ‘creationPolicy' at application level has been
    set to 'All' because of design. This although is not a standard
    practice but this does not help us because the same application
    compiled with Flex 2 used to load successfully.
    If anybody has faced a similar issue and has some suggestions
    please do give us pointers. Otherwise we are left with a lengthier
    option of re-factoring the application so that creation policy
    defaults to 'auto' and modify the application design.

    I am building an application in Flex 3. I simply want to create a photo gallery with a thumbnail where when the user clicks on a thumbnail, the image is shown in the canvas/tab navigator box next to it. The images are stored in a local folder (in src) are ARE NOT on available on any web link.
    The Vbox with the thumb image and the .xml file has been created. But when I click on the thumbnail, the full image cannot be seen in the application. I dont know if this is a problem with data binding or what.
    Please help!!!
    Thanks a ton.

    Check the folder structure
    Flash is not able to get some file thats why the IO Error.
    trace the url path just before u load the file and u will be abel to find whether that file is in specified folder or not.
