    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.

One single short beep pc turns off for some sec and turns on repeating th beep


Most probably your processor is getting overheated due to dust on the cooling fan and heat sink. Remove them and clean. Before putting them back remove old thermal pase and apply fresh one. If you are not familiar with these things then go to a technician.

H57h-am2 beep never stop


A computer will alert you to trouble through beeps and other sounds. If you have a problem with the operating system, the computer gives you different beeps when you start up the computer. You hear the beeps in different scenarios, such as three long beeps or one long and one short beep. These beeps can mean different things depending on what computer model you have. A siren sound on a computer means the central processing unit is overheating. This is true for any computer. When the CPU gets hot, it makes a siren sound warning you that your computer is overheating. At that point, the computer should be turned off to prevent damage.
Open the computer and clean it if you notice a lot of dust inside. You can purchase canned air at most stores. Follow the instructions on the can. Check the instructions in the manual that came with your computer on how to clean the inside of it. If there is a lot of dust, that alone can cause the heat sink to overheat. Verify the CPU heat sink is properly installed and the power is connected. Consult the manufacturer's instructions on how to open your computer and find the heat sink. It should give you instructions on how to check that it is properly installed and connected. You should find it in the middle of the motherboard. Make sure the fan is working. Your CPU will overheat if the fan is not working properly. Refer to the manufacturer's instructions for your computer for instructions to check the fan. Replace it if it is malfunctioning.

Emachines t5212 overheat message then shuts down


Three causes of ovheating:
1) Dust. Dust inside the computer, Dust around the vents, fans, cpu and heat sink. Take a can of compressed air and clean the dust out of the computer.

2) A Fan not working. Make sure the fan inside the Power Supply where you plug the power cord in works. Also there is a fan that sits on top of the CPU and Heat Sink. Make sure it works. Normally the system will give you an error message if the fan is not working.

3) Thermal Paste - The Thermal Paste around the cpu and heat sink has dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool. Apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste on the CPU and Heat Sink.

Zeros and Fours are blurry


Hi.
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.
