|HELP! !! HP Probook Switches Off While Rendering 3D Drawings On It! by Horlardorjah(m): 5:33pm On Jan 12, 2015|
Plz geeks n gurus in d house, I have a HP probook which switches itself off when I'm rendering 3d drawings on it. (Revitt architecture). It also gives sound while working on it. Please what can I do. Processor: core i3 2.53ghz and ram 2gb.

The system could be overheating. What kind of sound? Mechanical?

As a professional Architect you should be using a system with dedicated video/graphics memory. (I think 2gb is too small for confirm renderings o).
Even my 4gb laptop slows down when rendering on 3ds max talk less of 2gb.
You would have to do your renderings in small resolutions probably like 320x480 for the main time till you upgrade to a REAL SYSTEM for RENDERING. 3D graphics.
In short the it was the rendering that affected the system, and if you are not careful you may fry your processor.
Look around if you can get an extensible dedicated memory graphics card.

Thanks @shawlxak, its a kind of mechanical sound n its overheating as well. What can I do?
@ememerald, gracias bro. Will the extensive graphics card help before I can get another system. Thanks for your contributions

Ok. That mechanical sound could be coming from the cooling fan or the hard disk.
A clogged or damaged cooling fan can cause the system to overheat. Physically examine your laptop. If the sound seems to be coming from the fan, then try blowing dust out of it (system should be powered off whilst you do this), and see if that helps it run quieter. Else, replacing it is the solution.
Upgrading your RAM or getting another computer with a dedicated video memory will indeed speed up your work. However, if the cooling fan does not work optimally (clogged or damaged), or the vents are blocked in any manner, the system will still overheat.
I would also like to share a few tips to help your laptop run cooler. For instance, using it on a solid flat platform, rather than soft surfaces such as a mattress, pillow, rug etc. Even when you place it on your lap, you would want to ensure that you are not blocking the bottom/side vents one way or the other. You can also try using your laptop in an air-conditioned environment.
If, on the other hand, the mechanical noise seems to be coming from the hard disk, please backup your data and start preparing for a replacement. Hard disks make noise just before they fail. It might take a while longer, but it will eventually fail.
