Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
Turns on and says turned off due to thermal event press Enter to continue...Then restart in Windos Normally or "repair mode". However, it never make it through to reboot. just shuts off again. I can hear the fans going non-stop.
Buy some arctic silver from radio shack ($10). Remove the heat sink from the CPU. Apply a dime sized drop and spread it with a credit card or saving card. Attach heat sink.

SOURCE: Fan Malfunction??
Sounds like a heat issue, pop the side of your case open and turn on the PC, are there fans not moving? Take a close look at your processor fan if there is one.

Most of the time you'll never hear the CPU fan. If you don't hear the normal fan sounds coming from your computer, it is most likely the power supply cooling fan. Hold you hand at the back of the computer where the power chord plugs in, while the computer is running, and test if you feel air blowing on your hand. If you don't, then replace your power supply. Make sure, when checking for a new PS that you get the correct pin count. Best to order from Dell since proprietary systems usually use proprietary parts and a generic PS won't fit in the opening at the back of the computer (alignment of the plug and the fan with the opening, etc.)
