THERMAL OVERHEATING SHUTDOWN


1) Clean the inside of the computer. Power unplugged to computer, Anti-Static Precautions used, use a can of air, or two, to clean.
(Compressed air for computers)

2) Computer case open, computer plugged into power, turn the computer on, observe the cooling fans.

A) Processor: A processor may have it's fan sitting on top of the finned Heatsink, which sits on top of the processor,

OR, the fan may be a computer case fan in the Front of the computer, and uses a plastic tuned port to deliver air from the fan to the Processor.

In either case observe the rotation of the fan. See if it seems to be spinning at the correct speed. (RPM's)

See if it spins intermittently. Spins a few times, then slows down, or stops, and then spins again.

3) Check the Thermal Paste.
If the thermal paste in-between the top of the Processor's case, and the bottom of the Heatsink, has dried up, the Processor will overheat.

If a Thermal Pad is used, remove it, fly it at the cat like a Frisbee. They are J-u-n-k.

Clean the top of the Processor's case, and the bottom of the Heatsink, THOROUGHLY, and Properly apply fresh, new thermal paste.

turning off in 2 minutes automatically


My guess is that the fans inside the computer have stopped working, thus leading to the overheating. AMD processors generally run "hot" (50 to 60 degrees Celsius) even with proper fans.

Take your computer to a qualified technician, for a cleaning, and proper trouble-shooting, and repair, before the overheating causes permanent damage.

DEAR SIR, I AM USING INTEL 945GNT DESKTOP


shutdown is due to overheating there is a sensor inside every processor to protect it from overheating nd if the temperature goes above this temperature it automatically shutdown.
if you are using a desktop then change your cabinet buy a airy one with extra fan installed in it. or you can open one side of your cabinet to sink the heat quick;y.
