Fix: lenovo y560 laptop over heating problem

My Lenovo Y560 laptop started to over heat few days back. Here is simple fix (clean CPU fan).

remove back cover

remove fan cover, clean the fan vent. You can ether vacuum it or air blast.

Cleaning had lowered my CPU temperature quite a bit.

If this does not work for you, option 2 (from google search)
BIOS 71 > Some users reported heat problems after upgrading to the new BIOS version 71, since it seems that the fan speed is bugged in this version and downgrading to an older version should help.

A nice software to monitor Y560 temperature Link


Windows XP mode could not be restored because of either host processor mismatch or lack of hardware assisted virtualization support in the system

Just few days a go got this message..
Windows XP mode could not be restored because of either host processor mismatch or lack of hardware assisted virtualization support in the system.

The reason is that by default when you close Windows XP Mode, Windows Virtual PC will put Windows XP Mode in hibernation. If you dont know what XP mode is, its great tool for Windows 7 users that want to use old hardware or software. In my case I was using it to watch TV over old USB tuner card.

Anyway, fix for this is very simple
go to: Location “C:\Users\[user id]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Virtual PC\Virtual Machines”

changing the name of the .vsv file, and that will force it to start booting the VM fresh when you start the VM again.

To prevent this error from happening again in the future, you can change the virtual pc option from Hibernation to Shutdown.

1. Open Virtual PC.
2. Click on Tools and then click on Settings.
3. Under the Close tab, change the option from Hibernate to shutdown.
4. Restart your computer and start your Virtual PC for the changes to take effect.
