well PCSX2 forums is not the best place to ask such a thing Wink

the problem is with your Laptop nothing we can do !!

what you can do :

1- clean off the fans and heatsink !

2- replace Thermal Paste

3- buy a cooling Pad !

The thing is, the more things your CPU and GPU need to process, the higher the temperature rises. Especially on lower end or older models.

Look at the emulation window. The EE% shows how much CPU power it's using, while the GS% shows the GPU vice versa... The higher the % is, the more things being processed and more of the CPU resources are used. Simply put it, higher % is synonymous with your PC heating up. Not to mention it's harder on laptops than on desktops.

so just to continue with pyro, you need to make sure that when you are playing, only pcsx2 is on and everything else is off. You can try setting your overall computer into performance mode as opposed to visual or balance, which should lighten the load a bit. The most important thing is that you play in a cool area, with a cooling pad underneath. Get a good one. Also do what abdo suggested and do a good cleaning of the inside. I remember when I first got my 4850, a few moths later it was caked in dust bunnies and overheating issues until i cleaned it and ive never had any issues since.

Whoa whoa whoa. This completely caught me off guard. Is this just a typo or are you honestly asking about JPCSP on the PCSX2 forum?

It's a java based PSP emulator. Still runs like crap though. Don't know when we'll ever get decent PSP emulation (they're not too expensive these days though).

It's not, but we've got rules for a reason, this forum will turn into kitchen sink otherwise. Anyway, the OP did say FF10 so he's still talking about pcsx2 at least initially.

There's a JPCSP thread somewhere in this forum, ask there and I'll try to help you. Be more clear though.

@PyroBunta
If you ever bother to read through many testimony about current JPCSP, you'd know that you're terribly wrong.

No. I'm intrigued really. I really wish JPCSP was better than it used to. Last time I tried it there was a lot of problems and compability issues. Also it looking worse than playing games on a real PSP. If it got any better I'm interested in finding out naoan.
