Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Before you think your fan has gone bad or the mother board has gone bad stop. About 50% of my fixes are due to a clogged fan or dirty. Take the time and blow it real good. You can do it while it is still put together or if you are comfortable you can take it apart and clean it out real good. Once you do that run it for a while and see if stays powered or over heats. If you have updated your bios it will change your fan speeds and could get hotter than normal. You can think Intel for that one they changed there requirements.
