When hot my clio cuts out and sometimes after 5 or 10 minutes it start again for a while then cut out again
The computer is doing this to protect the processor and RAM. depending on how long the computer will run for after it has cut out you may need to replace the Processor and RAM. If the computer will run for 2 days without a problem after cutting out than you simply need to shut the computer down more often after you are finished with it.
If the computer will run for 4 hours without a problem after cutting out, than it is the graphics card that is causing the problem, 1st make sure the graphics card is in the socket and any cables are securely attached, than try it again if the same problem occurs replace the graphics card.
If the computer will run for an hour without a problem after cutting out than it is a problem with the Processor and Ram, without another computer with an identical processor socket you can not test this and have to replace both. If you do have another computer with a motherboard that has an identical processor socket, you can test the processor simply by swapping them around and running it in your other computer. If the problem occurs again swap the processors back and than swap the RAM cards one at a time. If after doing this you still have a problem The solution is to replace the Power supply.
If the computer will run for less than 30 minutes with out a problem after cutting out than the problem is with the cooling and heat dissipation in your computer. Try upgrading the CPU heat sink and CPU Fan, you might also want to try adding some RAM Heat sinks to your RAM cards, and maybe a Graphics Card Heat sink. But most definitely upgrade the number of fans and if possible the size of a case fan in your computer. Try running your computer in a cooler environment.
If you still have problems after upgrading the cooling than the Problem is the Power Supply you need to replace this. If you want to go back to the old cooling system you were using most computer shops will give you a refund as long as components are not damaged and are clean, and in there boxes with the receipt. But at the price of desktop cooling components these days you would be bettor off keeping them in my opinion as they come in useful for all sorts of things. 4 cpu fans glued together correctly and you have a room fan lol
