My computer is restarting all the time. How can I check why this is happening?

I?ve checked the CPU temperature and it goes up to 49-51 degrees (Celsius). I?ve cleaned the computer of dust, all fans are working and still the computer restarts itself. I can?t seem to recognize the problem or what is causing it.

First, make sure you have anti-virus software that is up to date and the computer isn?t infected with anything. If it?s not a virus, restart the computer and enter Safe Mode (press F8 while the computer is loading), and wait a few minutes. If the computer doesn?t restart itself in Safe Mode, then you might be having a software problem. If it does, it?s a hardware problem. There are a lot of possibilities. The problem with windows is that it restarts automatically every time there?s a problem and it?s hard to see the message that appears detailing the problem. To change that? go to System Properties in the Control Panel and click on Advanced>startup and recovery>settings. Remove the check no ?Automatically restart?. Next time the problem occurs you?ll get some more information about it that would help you solve it. Good luck.

Hello there

I just need some clarification, how long it takes before your machine restarted???

Can it load Windows, or it just restarting before you can log on???

If so then check your hardware, like your RAM or CPU fan, if everything is working ok, then check your led cables, maybe you got some problem with your Shutdown Button and that what makes your PC restart (I have this once)

Hope it helps

Why the card cage fan is working faster in dell precision 380 without getting slower?

Don't try to slow down the speed if you don't know the temperature from your processor or your motherboard. Look on the web for a monitor program to see if one of them is getting real warm Like above 60 degrees Celsius. Then your fan will work as hell.
If the computer is a bit older, perhaps the cooling paste, between the processor and the cooling body on the processor is dried. Only use the correct cooling past, and not anything else. Don't allow the processor to heat up above 65 degrees Celsius, because it won't live long after that.
If you do have a monitor program, you could slow down the fan, without any risk.

Acer aspire overheating fix

What model of acer apire ?
When a laptop gets hot physically hot, to the touch you know something isn\'t quite right. It\'s normal for a computer to get a bit warm as it runs, which is why computers have a built-in cooling fan in addition to a heatsink and cooling vents. Excessive heat, however, is almost always an indication that something is malfunctioning. This is no different with the Acer Aspire 5000.

What\'s Happened If you\'ve ever looked inside of a computer or seen an "exploded view" of a laptop, you will know that thousands of components work together to ensure your computer\'s best performance. The cooling fan is activated by temperature readings from the central processing unit, which heats up and cools down depending on what it is being used for. Sitting idle, the temperature of the CPU will be low and the fan won\'t come on. When the computer is performing a few tasks simultaneously, the CPU is taxed and the fan kicks in. When you hear the fan whirling excessively, the computer is overheating which can damage the CPU. Thermal compound is a sticky paste that is placed directly onto the CPU. Allowing for a more direct heat transfer between the CPU and HEAT SINK and preventing air gaps from forming between the CPU and heat sink. b> Checking Temperatures You can download programs to monitor the core temperature of your CPU. Programs like Core Temp, Speed Fan or Motherboard Monitor use the hardware monitoring devices built into your Aspire notebook to track its core temperature. Different sources suggest that the Aspire 5000 can run at a different maximum temperatures. Users on Tech Support Forum say 50 to 60 degrees Celsius is normal even optimal and that above 75 degrees is a problem. Acer\'s technical manual for the Aspire talks about external temperatures for running the computer efficiently (between minus 20 and 30 degrees), but it says nothing of internal temperatures. A few different users reported overheating to the point of 90 degrees, at which point the computer freezes and shuts off. Warranty Fix Computer original equipment manufacturers like Acer sell every computer with a limited warranty. Overheating is usually covered by this warranty. If your computer is repeatedly reaching high temperatures, and you\'ve recorded the temperatures with software, contact Acer for a replacement or a repair. Out-of-Warranty Fix The simplest way to address an overheating problem is to let the computer breathe a little. Make sure that you use it on a flat, hard surface so that air can pass to the fan easily and without interruption. You can buy laptop cooling pads at most computer stores that are designed with this in mind. As a complex fix for an out-of-warranty system, you can follow a picture tutorial from MPS Computers to replace the sealant around the heatsink with a new glue called Arctic MX-2. This glue allows more heat to escape and brings the core temperatures down about 10 degrees. Acer Aspire Overheating issues 257 software downloads results for "temperature"

Cpu high temperatures

Watch a complete step by step instrucitonal video on how to fix a CPU that is running at high temperatures risking overheating the computer. This is a common problem for people who overclock computers. After the fix in the video was performed the CPU core temperature dropped from 57 degrees celsius to 46 degrees celsius, but that's not all. The 46 degree CPU temp was taken with Sisoftware Sandra Lite after the computer was overclocked from 2.4 GHZ Stock speed to 3.1 GHZ.

My laptop keeps shutting down from over heating. i've had a few years, is it past it or does it need an inside cleaning or something?

Computer overheating is mainly due to three causes. The airflow inside the case may be insufficient and cause heat to build locally. Certain components may overwork and generate more heat than usual. A high room temperature will create overheating. Errors caused by heat show as blue screens, system freezes, random shut downs or untraceable errors regardless of the application running. If component rearrangement doesn't do the trick, products that do PC cooling can help.

1.Ensure that the errors are caused by overheating. Move your computer to the coolest place of your house. You may choose to lower the temperature of the room instead by cranking up the air conditioning. Operate the computer and see if the same problems appear. If they don't that is a fair indication that overheating occurs.
2.Proceed to the following steps if you believe overheating occurs based on what you found in Step 1. Otherwise, if you can't fix the problem using system tools and anti-virus software, take your PC to the manufacturer or to a technician.
3.Check for dust. Remove the computer's outer cover and see if dust has built up. Dust can reduce the airflow, it can slow down the fans or other mechanical components it gets into, or it can act as an insulator causing heat to increase. Use air pressure to remove the dust.
4.Determine if you have components that are set to overwork. If you assembled the computer yourself, you may have adjusted certain components to higher settings for boosting their performance. If you have a device working at a higher voltage or higher clock cycles, lower down its setting or remove it altogether, if possible.
5.Inspect the temperature around the components that use the most power. These are, the CPU, the graphics processor, the power supply and the hard drives. Use your hand to assess the ambient temperature. It shouldn't be more than 2 degrees Celsius warmer than the room's temperature, while the computer is running. You can tape temperature sensors bought from a computer store, if unsure. Change the placement of the components or the fans to improve the airflow, if you found components blocking the air intake.
6.Buy and install a cooling fan. Choose a fan that can lower temperature of your motherboard by as much as 5 degrees Celsius.
7.Use liquid cooling as an alternative to a cooling fan.

I hope you find it very helpful.

The temperature of my nvidia g102m is around 70-90 degree celsius when the computer idle

This is too hot for a laptop. I suggest that you need to get into the heatsink and fan assembly and clean the fan and intake grilles, which will in all probability be clogged with dust. If not dealt with, the rise in temperature will eventually cause the GFX chip to unsolder from the board

Hi, I have a high temperature problem. Its about 72 degrees (celsius) in idle and eg durring gameplay it jumps right to about 90 degrees and i get a high temperature warning when it hits about a 100 or...

If you are not overclocking it then it could well be a faulty temp sensor. As that is at processor level you won't be able to fix it. It also depends on what prog you are using to detect the temp.

You would be able to feel it if it were at 100deg c. That's boiling point!

What the long beep means? while i am printing my computer beeps very long.

When your computer is "printing", it is working hard to format the text/pictures for printing. As it works hard, the CPU heats-up. When the temperature of the CPU exceeds a programmed value, e.g., 55 to 60 degrees Celsius, your motherboard will start "beeping" to indicate that the CPU is "too hot".

Turn the computer off, and open it up.
Check that the fans are working.
Take a can of compressed-air, and give your computer a "blow-job" to remove all the dust, because dust acts as unwanted "insulation".

Loud "whirring" sound

this is the fan. could be the CPU cooling fan or a case fan.
when you hear this sound it means the fan is having trouble spinning around. you can fix this by taking off your side panel and removing dust from your fan/fans, and even adding a little dab of oil like WD40 to there the fan spins round the hub to increase lubrication and remove friction.
Though this may help, its always a sign that the fan is not healthy and will eventually need replaced.
Hope this helps

Ga-m61sme-s2l motherboard always shut down within 5mins

It sounds as if the motherboard is having a temperature safety shutdown. This occurs when the temperature of the CPU exceeds a certain limit.

First off: Please check your CPU fan, power supply fan, and graphics card fan(if you have a gfx card) that they are working. If not, I would highly recommend replacing the fans or at least cleaning them and attempting to get them started by rotating them manually.

Please enter your BIOS (See Here for instructions) and navigate to "PC Health Status" - check the entry for the CPU temperature. While in the BIOS there is little strain on the system, but if the temperature is above 40 degrees Celsius in this state it may be prudent to check the fan setting. Also, check if there is a CPU Fan fail warning/CPU warning temperature - on average the limit should not exceed 60-65 degrees Celsius, max. Set any Fan speed or mode settings to maximum if able.

Try again.

If problem persists, and you are sure the temperature is not too high and/or the CPU fan is working, it may be the power supply itself. It is possible for the power supply to shut itself off in extreme cases such as when a power supply's fan stops working, and the temperature of the power supply rises to an unsafe level. Sometimes the fan will work initially but quit after a certain time. The fan requires replacement if this is the case.

Let the computer sit for a while and check to make sure it is at or near room temperature. Attempt to restart the installation process. When the power is cut, feel where the power supply meets the case to check whether or not it is particularly hot.

Replacement of the power supply's fan should solve that problem. I recommend taking it to a repair shop.

If that is not the problem, a last resort is that the harddrive is overheating and causing a system crash. With the case open, start the computer (mindful to be careful and always touch a large metal object such as the computer case itself before getting your hands near any components to prevent static damage), and wait for it to crash. Place your hand gently on the harddrive. If it is very warm or hot to the touch, most likely the harddrive's actuator arm, circitry, or data plate is malfunctioning and the drive should either be taken to be repaired or replaced.

If none of the components in your computer are particularly hot, please come back with more information on your computer, such as the parts, what you are cd you are booting, any new hardware, etc.
