We use HWMonitor to test the components temperature wise and can be especially important when it comes to laptops which have a track record of getting very hot and subsequently shutting down.
- The temperature of key components that expend the most energy and heat as these are the two most common causes of shut downs.
- Power consumption of key components such as the CPU and HDD to ensure that the power supply is adequate.
- Speed, as a long time in loading applications or starting up your computer could be due to over utilization of the CPU, HDD or RAM.
I can't stress enough how vital and life saving this software can be, so next time your computer shut's down without warning download HWMonitor and make sure that the temperature and power consumption is normal.
