    overheating and crashing

  • AdilahIlhamm Apr 13, 2009

    If you don't use the air conditioning in the summer (in Texas) will this cause the computer to overheat? I seem to have the problem when it reaches 80 degrees in my apartment.

1) With the case open, turn on the computer and make sure the fan(s) is working properly.

2) This is NOT for the faint-of-heart! One of the most common causes of overheating requires you to remove the CPU (Intel P4 processor chip in your case), clean it, and re-install it. There is a thin layer of gray goop between the CPU and the Heat Sink (the thing that looks like a radiator, under the fan) which is designed to transfer heat from the CPU to the Heat Sink. This goop is called "thermal paste." If it gets dried out, it will not transfer heat any longer, and your CPU will overheat.

If you are willing to attempt to remove your CPU, clean it, and put a new layer of thermal paste on it, please reply and I will help walk you through the process. You should be aware that there is a possibility that you may completely destroy your CPU if you make a mistake.

Is your CPU fan spinning? Check to ensure that it is plugged in and functioning. Also ensure that your Video card and memory is fully pushed in. If you can't get a boot after that. Do some research to find out what the four beeps on post means on that board.

My Gigabyte GA 945GM S2 Mother Board Staring & Turning Off After Few Seconds. At start time CPU Fan starts with a blinking. Whats the Problem?

Hello here is the gigabyte homepage:

Try to download the manual.

The fault could be the power supply, try to renew that.

Try also to renew the thermal paste, between the cooling element and the cpu, and make sure the fan and the cooling element is clean for dust.

The fault could also be a defect ram module.

Any beep codes ???
Or blue screen ???

Good luck

This Acer ASPIRE AS5551 4200 keeps freezing up like every few minutes. It's fustrating to have to wait for it to come active again. So I just stare at this lap top until it availabe to work with.

Your laptop is overheating very quickly, try putting a fan to it at all times. For a semi-better solution, get a can of compressed air and blow inside the cooling vents with it to clean out some dust. If you don't trust yourself with this, try sending it to a computer shop to have it professionally cleaned.

clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making sure there is no moisture in the air line

as dust will cause a lot of static which will make a computer overheat and cause lots of problems

hope this helps

Zeros and Fours are blurry

This is very common. It usually means you have not been replacing the ink roller on time and now it is coming to pieces and getting stuck all over the drum in the printer. Replace the ink roller (never re-ink it) and then clean the little number wheels on the rotary drum in the printer. That should sort it.

T5082 keeps abruptly shutting down

Sounds like it may be overheating. If you get warning beeps on startup that sounds high, low, high low, it is overheating. you should inspect and clean the fan on the processor with a vacuum or compressed air ans also clean the power supply area with a vacuum to clear all the dust out. Inspect and wipe any other dust away from the motherboard and card inside. After restarting, it still goes off, check that the fan is running during startup. If not, the fan needs to be replaced at a nominal cost. This is an easy fix. If this all fails, let me know so we can troubleshoot everything together.
