"You can experiment with this setting if you want- sometimes 99% works  fine and slightly improves performance.  Or you can leave it alone-- these heat shutdowns are not really very good for a computer."

"Abracadabra; adjusting 'Maximum Processor State' (in 'Processor Power Management') -so it does not exceed 95% of its capabilities seems to be doing the trick - as Roy pointed out. Thanks! Will try new thermal compound anyway -…"

George Ioannidis replied to Thorsten Hedrich's discussion Computer restarts
"Doesn't that mean that turning your CPU 95% down it will run only at 5% of its full horsepower? Does it mean that the rendering will then run 20X longer than of full CPU throttle? Or did you mean to set the CPU usage to 95%? Are those 5% enough…"

"Turn CPU max down-- usually something like 95% will take care of it."

"Sad to say and thank you all, but none of the efforts been made to figure out what reason causes the shutdowns succeeded. Seems to be that i can't use this computer with next any longer :("

"Cooler works; pushed it in bios 3 steps further. Sounds horrible noisy now - but, no luck, next crashes like before, machine restarts. Tested the whole thing on another machine - no problems there. Thanks for your efforts :)"

"Panning while placing decals doesn't work for me in any version starting with AutoCAD 2015 and later. Panning does work in AutoCAD 2013. I'll see if I can figure out what changed and see if we can fix that."

mapping decals

I think this started with AutoCAD 2019:While in the process of mapping a planar decal, it is not possible to pan, only zoom.This can make the process of picking points a bit tricky sometimes.I'm currently using AutoCAD 2020 on Windows 7.See More
