Try reapplying the thermal paste. Make sure it is a thin layer evenly spread across CPU. Also make sure you have good airflow through your case. And check your BIOS to make sure your fan will spin up faster to regulate temperature.

Tip

PC Overheating


Why does the PC keep shutting down whilst in operation?
If you PC keeps shutting down then it means that it is overheating and the shutting down is to prevent it from damaging itself. The optimal operating temperature of all electronics as somewhere around 21 degrees Celcius or 69.8 degrees Fahrenheit ambient air temperature.

4 Things you can do to prevent overheating.

Dust Removal - The first thing you can do to prevent overheating is to make sure your case fans as well as system fans are clear of dust as dust clogs up the flow of air therefore less cool air can reach the hot component. To do this you can use a vacuum cleaner. With a dust free PC you can expect around 10 degrees cooler in some cases, it all depends really on the operating conditions.

Invest in some case fans - Another way to prevent overheating is to invest in some good quality case fans, the sizes vary between 80mm to around 140mm, some can be even larger.

Replace thermal paste - You should always replace the thermal paste under the heatsink of your CPU every 4 to 5 years as over time it gets crusty and becomes less effective at dispersing heat. Thermal paste should be placed in a line about the size of a rice grain on top of the CPU in the centre.

Invest in a good CPU cooler - Most stock CPU coolers are able to keep temperatures at a reasonable level, but better CPU coolers can be purchased if you really want a cool CPU. These can range from Cooler Masters V-Series Air Coolers (V6, V8, V12) to liquid cooling systems by various manufactures such as DeepCool and Corsair. Remember - Most after market coolers are better than the stock cooler supplied with the CPU. For clarification it's best to have a one-on-one chat to a sales person at your local PC store.

There is a great FREE program on the Web called Hardware Monitor by CPUID. You can get it here.

Just click on the 1.17 Setup, english, as shown below circled in red, to download the program.
slasher_x_54.jpg
The Hardware monitor software monitors your systems temperatures in the background whilst you work. It shows current, minimum and maximum temps of your components such as:
- North Bridge and South Bridge motherboard temperatures.
- ACPI Power Supply temperature.
- CPU temperature.
- Graphics Card or Display Card temperature.
- Hard Drive temperature.

The diplay of these temperatures depends on the temperature nodes in your system. Newer Motherboards will have CPU, North and South Bridge temperature readings. The Hard drive readings depends on your hard driver, most SATA hard drives should have readings. Again the ACPI reading will depend on the quality of your Power Supply.

Harware Monitor also displays the fan speeds of your CPU as well as any fans directly connected to the motherboard.

With these temperatures on hand you can quickly isolate the overheating components and take action to ensure that they are kept cool.

Want to upgrade graphics


Your right, both cards will be quite an inprovement in graphics. Your weak link is going to be the CPU, Your specs say AMD Semperon 3200 1.8GHz. Your power supply is a 300w, right? The EVGA 01G-P3-1302-LR has a MIN. 350w. http://www.evga.com/Products/Product.aspx?pn=01G-P3-1302-LR&seeReview=true, you should be OK. The GIGABYTE GV-R435OC-512I Min. 300w. PCIE 2.0 :http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=2924#sp Both sound good for you , I have both ATI/AMD and Nvidia in laptops and desktops. I like Nvidia. It's your choise, of course, Both are a lot of bang for the bucks. They do get Hot, so keep them as cool as you can. Both have fans! If the graphics card starts giving you little issues, upgrade the PSU to say 400w. Remember, every device you add requires a bit more power.Enjoy!

My desk top system gets Off when I watch films only after the AMD processor is over heated.


i guess you mean the computer switches off when your watching films due to your AMD processor is overheating, if so best you order a replacement CPU Cooler usually around 10 pounds, just a matter of opening up the pc, removing the old cpu cooler by lifting the lever on it, and taking it off, remove the old thermal paste on the cpu and put new thermal paste on the cpu and attach the new cooler. also have a look at any other ways you can lower the temperature of the machine maybe thigns likes case fans etc.

This desktop computer has involuntary shutdowns when started? A repair man said it's due to overheating. I read about a power supply switch set on 220v. Can you tell me more about this switch?


It has nothing to do with that switch, YOU MUST USE THE APPROPRITE VOLTAGE, EITHER 115V or 220V. Using the wrong value would completely fry your computer Components. Well especially if the voltage coming in is greater than that represented on the switch. This switch, switches between two different circuits within the Computer Power supply or PSU. One for 115V and another for 220V.

Your PC is overheating, it is shutting down to protect itself from permanently damaging itself. Ensure that your computer components are free of dust. pay special attention to the CPU cooler and Graphics Card cooler. Use a paint brush and Vacuum cleaner. If you are unable to do it then hand it over to a pro, as you have to be aware of ESD, Electro Static Discharge.

Can you mix 1gb and 2gb dimms in the same machine (for a total of 6gb)? I added two 2gb 1066 DDR2 dimms (''OCZ'') to a PC that already had two 1066 DDR2 1gb dimms (''Kingston''). I moved the 1gb dimms to...


Your MB is AM3 with 128MB DDR3-1333 built-in, four 1.8 Volt DDR2-1200+ depending on cpu. Have you enabled cpu 64 bit extensions? Tried slowing down your memory bus?
My ASUS use dual channel for dual core cpu. I have 2 yellow and 2 black dimm sockets. Both dimms in yellow is single channel, one in yellow and one in black is dual channel. Might try 2,1,2,1 rather than 2,2,1,1 order. If only your 2 1GB dimms are seen then why do you get 4 GB from 1GB+1GB? Sounds like sockets 1,2 are giving you 4GB and 3,4 don't work? Are the 1GB+1GB in 3,4 visible if the dimms in 1,2 are removed? Per Gigabyte page your AMD Phenom II 920 is AM2+ : "Note: Due to AMD AM2+ CPU limitation, memory module DDR2 1066 or above speed is only supported by 1 dimm per channel." Per AMD (which does not show your cpu, AM3 cpu fit AM3 or AM2+ socket and support ddr2 and ddr3, AM2+ cpu only work in AM2+ socket and support ddr2 only.

Motherboard will not start


It seems like there could be a short in the system. Check to make sure that the board is tight in the case, and that no foreign objects are causing the motherboard to short. If there is no obvious problem and the motherboard is new, I would return it as a defect.
