Inspirion 531S powers on. System overheats. I replaced the fans and put in a larger 300 w power supply. Some of the voltages go high causing the fans not to run. The high CPU temperatures trigger a system...


The 300W Power Supply Unit is still somewhat under-powered 550W is required so that the computer is powered by a PSU working under minimum load strain and well within its power output capacity. 300W is the original Specification, See here:

See here:

Expensive, High Heat Conductive, Hot Metal, Medium Quality, Low Power, Dell PSU

Relatively Good Value, High Quality, Low Heat Conductive, High Power, Dual Fan, Logisys PSU

Cheap, Low Quality Highly Heat Conductive, Hot Metal, Low Power, Generic PSU

Sometimes, positioning the base unit directly on a carpet with a thick shaggy pile, or enclosing in it, during use in a poorly ventilated under desk cubby hole, next to a radiator, or in place receiving direct sunlight, polarised by glass in the nearby windows or some similar place can have a underestimated impact on the base unit's ability to cool itself when in use. Cooling is essential for the CPU, Motherboard Chipset, Graphics Card or onboard Graphics Chip, Hard Drive and RAM Memory. All need to be as cool as possible to work at optimum efficiency and the performance of each suffers drastically when exposed to over hot conditions, particularly the CPU which, from stone cold, can reach the temperature of boiling water within seconds of the computer being powered up and will underperform, overheat and shut down at the merest incidence of over hot conditions. So review all the salient cooling issues, then consider adding a separate, dedicated, fan cooled graphics card, its GPU Fan adding to the efficient cross circulation of cooling air to more of the interior and, also, its own built-in GRAM freeing up the 16Mb, 32Mb, 128Mb or 256Mb of System RAM that the on-board graphics chip borrowed from the RAM Modules. RAM that has to work less hard, works at a cooler temperature and thus more efficiently. The CPU works more efficiently as it no longer has to compensate as much for the loss of System RAM previously commandeered by the on board graphics, so it also generates less heat in doing so. Consider removing the (usually) green coloured, plastic Heat Conduit over the CPU and changing the CPU Heat Sink for a more effective, higher quality one, the leaving the conduit to one side. Cooling is about the rapid movement of vast volumes of air. The conduit works against itself by unnecessarily confining the hottest component in the case - the CPU. See an example here:

Consider also Inexpensive but beneficial, cooling Motherboard Chip and RAM Heat Sinks for the RAM Modules. Inexpensive, underside fan powered Hard Drive Coolers that screw to the underside of Hard Drives. See examples here:

The 550W PSU is necessitated by the extra cooling devices you contemplate installing

1. Today I called HP for assistance in regards to a virus I have encountered. I paid $99 for nothing I suppose since I was transferred 3-4 times and still did not receive any satisfaction I would like to...

First of all Tell them you paid and you never got assistance and if they refuse tell them that you will get a lawyer (I wouldn't actually get a lawyer) that will most likely get them to refund you. Now You can e-mail me at and if you want I can solve your problem from my computer from a screen sharing software I have and you will get the virus removed without paying $99.

All The Best,
