System temperature too hot

Well my system temperature is reaching heats of 50oc under load and I believe it is making my computer freeze causing me to restart. I was wondering how exactly this temperature is measured and where about on my motherboard (ga-p35-dq6) the object is located so I can place a fan near it to lower it's temperature.

Its measured in Celsius. Meaning alot higher in Fahrenheit. That would be the Processor.

You are looking for something that will be Square or on a Card that is in the motherboard.

Dell 8100 dimension keeps freezing


I need more than that to tell you how to troubleshoot the problem you're having. Most freezing or locking up is caused by a program not functioning properly. Start your computer in safe mode. Go to your start button, type in the search RUN right click and run as Administrator, then when the box opens type in MSCONFIG and click run/yes/okay (which ever you see). This will bring up a new window. On the main tab you'll see three options. Normal start up, Safe Mode, and Selective Startup/Custom Startup. Click safe mode hit okay and it will restart the computer into Safe Mode. This will prevent all startup programs and services from starting. Let the computer run and if it still freezes then you know it's a hardware issue. If it doesn't, it's a program error. Take the time then to diagnose either the hardware or the software. If it's the hardware, check to make sure that everything is seated correctly, that the ram is firmly and fully in their sockets. Make sure your hard drives are connected correctly. Check the power supply make sure it isn't dying and causing you too lose power.

Look at the motherboard and check for heat damage, blown resistors and other components.

If it's software, go back into MSconfig, go into selective start up and choose one or two programs at a time and restart the computer until it freezes. If you get it to freeze with a specific program you know it's the culprit.

Also, freezing tends to be related to bad configurations. I dont' know if you've been trying to overclock the processor, the ram, or the video card (onboard or dedicated) could also cause these issues. Check your bios and make sure your settings are correct. Stop using any overclocking software.

Lastly check temperature. The normal operating temperature of a desktop PC is 130 degrees F with some of the more powerful processors and video cars. 90 degrees F while not under load. If your temperature is getting too hot it could be crashing. This could indicate a bad processor, a heatsink that isn't seated or in contact with the processor anymore, malfunctioning fans, poor circulation, or even dust/grime/dirt getting into the computer.

You could be experiencing this GUI lag or freezing if you have background processes that are taking priority over it while they run drawing more of the computers resources. Let it sit for a little big and see if it corrects itself.

Lastly, if you're getting blue screens of death because of windows, get the logs for them and post them so we can go over them and see if anything else is happening.

Overheating


CPU/ Processor resources and due to the heavy processing the PC heats up. Excessive heat up beyond usual is alarming and PC shuts down by itself when the processor/ CPU temperature exceeds the safe temperature limit. There are mainly two reasons for heat up.
Heating issue generally occurs due to fan failure, which may damage the system, if not checked properly. Another most likely cause of overheating is the dust present inside the PC, which clogs the fan and heat sink.
1. Make sure the fan is running. (if not, it needs replacement)
2. Clean the fan and heat sink (thermal module). Take out the fan and heat sink. clean them with the help of tooth brush and put it back.
3. Also, make sure that the PC is placed in a well ventilated environment and the air flow the the PC is correct.
The procedure is very simple and I believe immediate action is required to prevent any damage to your machine and data.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Computer freezes randomly


If you have a fan that is not running, it can cause the system to run hot and freeze or shut down. Maybe that fan only turns on at a certain temperature so open the case and run the computer and keep an eye on the fan to see if it ever turns on. If not, replace it.

You probably need to apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste around the CPU and Heat Sink. If it has dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool it will cause the system to freeze, run hot or not be able to boot. Remove the screws from the fan that sits on top of the cpu and heat sink, then remove the heat sink, then unlatch the handle on the side that holds the cpu in the bay and remove the cpu (remember how it goes back into the bay). Clean off the old thermal paste then put the cpu back into the bay, secure it by closing the latch. Apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste on the CPU, clean the old thermal paste off the heat sink and apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste to it. Put everything back together.

Boot the computer up then download and install MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan to see if you have a virus or infection.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your machine.

PC restarted by it's own. Temperature fast to hot


The system is heating up really fast is caused by not enough cool air being directed to your CPU, Turn off the computer un-plug everything from the wall and carefully remove the side panel, not touching anything on the inside, look for the fan should be clearly to see, after that look closely enough to see behind the fan if its all dirty and filled with un-known substances then it requires cleaning. you can remove the screws holding the fan in place to give it a light clean, and put the fan back on, before putting the side panel back on check to make sure the screws holding the lump of metal is tight, after all that turn the computer back on and it should remain on.
The main cause to why the computer shuts down is because the CPU gets so hot the computer automatically shuts itself down to protect itself from over heating and causing damage.

Computer restarts constantly - hard drive tests show it is good. Constantly getting various stop errors, etc.


Thank you for your question.

In this instance is difficult to give a clear answer as there could be numerous problems to correct. I will list some from my experience that may give you somewhere to start.

1. Type the stop errors you mentioned into "Google" with the word "meaning" and this may give you some explanations what the codes mean.
2, Overheating - Check the fins of the CPU heatsink for dust build up, clean/clear carefully with a soft paint brush or use an air duster.
2. Check the all connections on the motherboard are "seated" properly, with the power off and the power cord removed from the system.
3. Run a "free test" on the Computer at a site such as PC Pit Stop. Follow the link and select the "Overdrive" option, it will lead you to the free test section.
4. Depending on how long the Operating System has been in place, it may be overloaded with "rubbish" from general operations, you may need to consider a "reformat" of the Hard Drive and a clean install of the Operating System.
These are some opening suggestions, good luck with it.

Kind regards

What part of my computer is defected if my computer will shutdown after 15 secs?


check your cpu fan first normally it's the fan.can give you more things to check, like memory stick but if that does not work write back and I can tell you also the power supply fan may be dirty or bad these are the most common thing you can find. and if you see a lot of dirt on the fan that is most likely your problem.

Many motherboards take two temps. Motherboard temp and CPU temp. CPU temp is the most common problem. Check there first. You might need a faster fan or a larger heat sink. Also make sure the pc isn't enclosed in anything. It needs to have air moving around it on both main sides, the front and back.

System temperature too high


Do you still have your manual? If not download it from Gigabyte at this link:http://www.giga-byte.com/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=2637
Enter your bios & open manual to page 51, "PC Health Status". Here you can monitor the CPU temp, system temp & CPU fan speed. Notice the manual shows the example of system temp to be 30degs C & current CPU Temperature is at 47degs C. One would think these temps are reasonable. My CPU fan runs between 3308Rpm & 3341Rpm. CPU @ 41deg C & MB @ 31deg C. AMD 64 X2 Dual Core 4200+ 2.21 GHz.
Suggest you try this. If your running Win XP. Open system properties. Click the Advanced tab. Click the settings button under
Startup and Recovery. Remove the check mark to the left of, Automatically restart. Windows should provide an error message if & when the system freezes. This will help in finding what is causing the system to freeze. If your CPU fan is running under 3000Rpm you might consider buying a faster fan or add a case fan to the side of the case to help bring in fresh air to blow onto the CPU fan & PCI-Express card. Here is a decent lace to look for case fans: http://www.xoxide.com/casefans.html

Keep me up to date andr_zero.
Good luck!
