    I have the same problem. Using Speed Fan I find that the cpu often goes over 70C and once there it runs so slowly that it is unusable.

    This computer does not have a fan attached to the heat sink (which is clean and well attached). The fan is on the front of the case and does not respond soon enough to the rise in temperature. It does eventually but does not stay on long enough to get the cpu back to reasonable levels.
    This has a Pentium D which I understand has heat issues.

The overheating fan is not controlled by a software, there are three reasons why your fan overheats. First in the hard drive, your fan is not connected properly. Second you need thermal paste to keep the metal part of the fan to stick to the CPU to cool it down. The last thing is that the fan could be dusty and not running as usual.

Computer keeps shuting down

The fan area of your PC is probably stuffed with some rubbish which is sticking the fan and/or overheating it - which causes the PC to shutdown every few minutes.

Open your PC and remove the rubbish

Dell dimension 370 randomly shuts down orange light flashes on pwr button

I suspect your graphics card or processor is overheating and shutting itself off to prevent damage.

Cool the unit down with additional fans, introducing cool air and exhausting warm air is key to a reliable, stable computer system.

The reason for this sudden problem is most likely because a higher resolution on the new monitor is supported, therefore making the computer work much harder than before.

Take care!

My dell optiplex gx 620 system fan run so fast and produse a lot of noise when i play games or downloading data from net

Open up the computer and clean the dust out of the fan and processor heat sink. If it is a temperature-controlled variable speed fan, it will probably not have to work so hard to keep the processor cool.

If it is a fixed-speed fan, it may be getting loud because the bearings are wearing out. Gently try to rock the fan blade unit - it should not have any wobble or slop in the bearings, and it should rotate easily.

If necessary, clean as much dust as you can out of the power supply without taking it apart.

Do not use a regular vacuum cleaner to **** dust off the motherboard. The high-velocity airflow may generate electrostatic charges that can damage the board. It's probably OK to vacuum out the heat sink if you hold the fan still to keep the vacuum cleaner from over-speeding it.

Emachine w5233 keeps shuting down what can i do to fix this problem

Does this happen when you are in your operating system??? and there is prompt that a program or command is promting it shut down, if it is, then it is a viral issue and latest anti visrus needs to be scanned for. If not, then I belive it is a overheating promblem most likely with your CPU. Cpu now come with a technology to override to the computer to shut down when it becomes overheat to prevent it from damaging itself further. Check your cpu fan, you can do this by taking your panel apartby unscrewing two screws from the back of your left side door panel, you then will see the motherboard and inside it you will see a huge fan, try to clean it by blowing off the dust and debris, if possible take the fan out, and apply new termal compund and reesemble to fan back onto the cpu. Make sure it is tight and securely fasten on. You should be good to go, if it still shuts off byitself, then porbraly a bad motherboard, or cpu, which will need to be replaced.

Sounds like it might be getting over heated. You will have to clean out the cooling system.

Computer shuts down for no discernable reason

Im not a expert but my opinion would be to just buy a new power supply. Installation is easy. Thats one thing that gets replaced most often out of all pc parts. I would wait for a expert opinon though, good luck
