You should replace the heat sinc and cooling unit. (possible the processor if it has suffered from extreme heat.) I don't know how computer savey you are but that is a process not recomended for beginners. If you know what you are doing though, it won't be that bad of a fix.

Try to unplug it for a while and put it back again, make sure you have a fan facing your computer.

Pc just cuts offf and wont come back on for a while how do i trouble shoot it

You might try cleaning out the inside of the case with some compressed air.Make sure pc is unplugged before doing this.
Dust and dirt accumulating inside pc will make it overheat and pc's do not like too much heat buildup.Also, if the thermal grease on the CPU is getting old, the CPU will overheat and that could shut it down. How old is your pc?Realplying New thermal grease onto the Processor will allow heat to transfer off of it better than before.It just sounds to me as a heat related issue.Make sure too that all your fans are operating ok.
including the CPU fan.

Videl and game lag

Hi. After looking at the specs of your tower, the Celeron cpu you have runs at a slow 533 MHz FSB speed and is a single core processor. The good news is that your motherboard is designed to handle an intel Pentium D Dual Core CPU 900 series. Your motherboard uses a type Socket T plug (CPU Plug type). The processors name is The Pentium D 920. Have Fun.

Makes sounds.

Where does the sound seem to be coming from?
If the sound is coming from the rear (rear fan), it might be the power supply.
If the sound is coming from the inside of the computer, the problem might be another fan on the inside (such as the CPU fan). If that is the case, then usually the computer will turn on for a short time and then cut off. When this happens, the computer when on, overheats and then shuts off.
Hope this helps! Let me know if it does and please vote. Thanks!

Asus eetop 2203t overheating cpu

The heat-sink copper pipe contains a liquid coolant inside. If this leaks (and it definitely does in some cases) the CPU will rapidly overheat.
To fix the problem you can either purchase a replacement part or cut holes in the case (not an easy task) and add an additional external fan over the CPU.

My computer cuts on but fan is going very fast and my monitor will not cut on if i turn it off i have tried hooking monitor to another computer it works fine. i have a compaq presario sr1703wm

Need a little more info please. First do you mean the computer stops working and the power supply fan is loud or is it the processor fan. Because if its the cpu fan then the processor maybe over heating. Make sure that the processor heatsink is on correctly and if needed put some thermal grease to help disapate the heat of the processor to the heat sink. Two possible faults cpu has overheat or is faulty or sensor on the system board is sensing the wrong temp and is shutting the system down. Both tyhese faults need parts hard to tell the difference without spare cpu.

Fans run most of the time but especially online

make sure you PC has room to breath. make sure air can flow from the front of the case or side to let air. i say at lease keep 5 inches on all side.

have you checked to see if the CPU heat sink is dust free?

Acer aspire 1670 problems

Check out your BIOS setting if u can manipulate fan speeds from it then you can solve your problem by playing with the the setting.

Seems that The fan has failed, usually PC's are set by default to shutdown in instance of a fan failure, you have to figure out with fan is bad, also troubleshoot a little more before you deem the fan is faulty. You can do this by maybe changing the fan's powered supply but using a different unused PSU female connector. Pls do not misunderstand, thinking that I'm telling you to replace PSU, just use a different wire to supply it. Again, these are just a few troubleshooting methods, before deeming the fan is bad,

But all in all it just sounds like the fan is bad.
