Question about Gigabyte GA-P35-DQ6 Motherboard

1 Answer

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.

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.

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!

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.

MY COMPUTER WILL SHORTLY OPEN BUT AFTER 10 OR 15 SECONDS MY COMPUTER WILL BE SHUTDOWN


There is more than one problem that can cause this.

Before trying anything else , unplug your pc and open the computer case .Look at the motherboard.There should be a small flat battery on it. Remove the battery , wait 30 seconds and put it back in.Try and open the pc again If the pc works then it should be fixed.

Does your pc restart,shutdown or freeze after the 15 seconds?

Try and enter BIOS and look at the different temperatures of the devices in your pc.If anything is above 65-70 degrees Celsius your pc is overheating.
Go to a electronics shop , buy some heat isolating paste and apply it to the overheating parts (usually the microprocessor or the graphics board gpu) .Also make sure everything is tightly locked to your motherboard.

If it's not overheating or you don't have enough time to check the temperature you should to go to a professional repair shop to take care of it it most likely is a faulty connection on your motherboard.

If your pc just seems to freeze randomly while booting up, You have a problem on one of your ram chips , try and remove them one by one and boot the pc.

Auto restart problem


Sometimes this can be caused by an overheating situation.If your CPUmag-glass_10x10.gif is running at over 60 degrees (C) you might be at risk of burning it out. Some systems shut down automatically when the temperature reaches an unsafe level. Every few weeks I open my system unit and clean the fins on the heat sink that sits under the CPU. When they collect dust it restricts the airflow and prevents proper cooling. You can use a can of compressed air (look at your local office supply store) or an old toothbrush. I just did that on my system and the CPU temperature dropped by ten degrees.
Download the free Speedfan utility and it will tell you the temperature at which your CPU and hard drives are running.
If you determine that overheating is not the problem, the most likely suspect is bad memory. Trying to access a bad spot in your system memory (RAM) can cause the computer to freak out and restart. The best way to find the culprit is to pop open the system unit, remove (or replace) one RAM stick and see if the problem is solved. Run your system for a while and if the problem goes away, you win! If not... lather, rinse and repeat for each RAM stick until you find the one that's misbehaving
Computer Restarts After Download?

Some folks have written to me complaining that their computer automatically restarts itself after every download. And interestingly, most (if not all) mentioned they were using the Firefox browser. If you are using a download manager or download accelerator, this could be causing the problem. Check all the settings in the download manager and tweak if necessary. Or get rid of the download manager and see if the problem remains.

This can also be a virus or spyware problem. I suggest you go through your Control Panel / Add or Remove Programs list and remove any programs you don't need, then run thorough anti-virus and anti-spyware scans. It could even be your anti-virus program fighting with the browser or download manager. Switching to a new anti-virus might help also. See my recommendations for the best free anti-virus software for help with that.

Failing or under-rated power supplies can also cause your computer to restart at seemingly random intervals. Switching out a power supply is really not too hard. Turn off the computer, open the case, disconnect the power cable from the power supply to the motherboard. Unscrew the power supply from the case, and reverse the process to install a new power supply. A 300-watt power supply will be fine in most computers.

And as one reader kindly pointed out, bad capacitors on the motherboard can also cause random reboots. But unless you're kinda geeky and handy with a soldering iron, it's tough to identify and fix this problem. You can find lots more helpful info on bad capacitors at badcaps.net. For most mere mortals, replacing the motherboard as a last resort will be easier than replacing a capacitor.

I also encourage you to read ALL of the comments below, before you rip your hair out, or rip your computer to shreds. It boils down to this... most restart problems are caused by overheating, bad ram, malware, or some other failing component. It can be difficult and time-consuming to identify WHICH of those things is the culprit. The only good solution is to test each one, in sequence (removing and replacing components if necessary), to identify the problem.

Pc shut down. when resterted no graphics or


Hello

Regarding with this problem, when computer which is shutting down. It is the processor problem they can not reach the temperature. Be sure that the CPU fan is spinning so that it will control the CPU temperature. If the fan is not spinning it will cause overheating. Try to disassemble the unit specifically the CPU. Clean your unit remove the dust, when you assemble back your unit make sure that you will put a thermal paste between the CPU and the CPU heat sink so that the of the CPU will absorbed by the heat sink.

Good luck!

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

System temperature too hot


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.

Try reapplying thermal compound to the CPU and reseat it. It might just be heating up and restarting due to the heat.
