If the processor you are using is supported by your system model, check the manual or tech specs if replacing the heatsink is also recommended when you upgrade the processor. updating the BIOS to the latest version may also help improve the fan's performance to help keep your system cool

Think it keeps overheating


This could be one of many possibilities. Check all your fans, too make sure they are running, especially if your CPU has its own fan, and you have good open ventilation around the cabinet. If someone has tweaked (overclocked) the CPU you could boot into the BIOS and use the factory default settings to undo any tweaks. You could also re-seat the CPU heat sink (rarely needed), which requires a tube of CPU heat sink goop and careful cleaning to get the old goop off. If you have open vent space, you could add another fan to the cabinet, close to the CPU area. Good luck.

Overheating amilo


Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

MY LAPTOP KEEPS OVERHEATING AND SHUTS DOWN 10 MIN AFTER STARTING UP. WHAT'S THE SOLUTION FOR THIS PROBLEM.


You possibly have a faulty FAN (which could be replaced) or the fan just needs a good blow-job - use an strong blower like the Ryobi blower to get rid of the dust in the fan. You could also get someone to open the laptop and take the heat sink off the CPU, then replace the silicone paste that is between the heat-sink and CPU. The silicone paste is used to conduct the heat away from the CPU to the heat-sink more efficiently.

But firstly of course check that the fan is working and replace if needed.

Good Luck.

Processor upgrade


Your CPU is tied into your motherboard. Only CPUs that are compatible with your motherboard will work. You can get your motherboard model from start>programs>system tools>system information. Once you have the model # then you can start searching for the CPU options. Good Luck.
