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

Gigabite motherboard overheating


Well, you've left a lot to consider. Have you checked that the case and CPU fans are running? Where do the unit sit? Units that are placed inside computer desks that have doors in front of them are just begging for overheating problems as there is very poor air ciculation. Is the CPU sitting on the floor? Here the enemy becomes dust and dirt. Dust and dirt are the most common causes of PC heat issues. The CPU heat sink becomes clogged with dirt and cannot cool effectively. Use canned air (available at most stores that sell PCs) to blow out the heat sinks. DO NOT REMOVE THE HEAT SINK/FAN ASSEMBLY unless you have proper thermal paste to apply for the remounting. Usually a good cleaning is all most machines need.

Computer shuts down by itself


There can be many reasons of unexpected shut down of your system.Below are some remedies to solve it

1
Run an anti-spy ware and anti-virus utility to make sure that the shutdowns aren't being caused by a malicious program. If the shutdowns are infrequent, install a CPU temperature monitor utility to keep track of the CPU's temperature. If the CPU is overheating, or the shutdowns are frequent, then you will need to troubleshoot your computer's internal components.

2
Check any recently installed internal components to ensure that they are properly connected to the computer's motherboard. Make sure any new expansion cards or memory modules are securely seated in their slots, and ensure that the power and data cables are properly connected to any new drives.

3
Check for large dust buildups on your CPU fan. If the fan isn't effectively cooling your CPU, the overheating CPU will cause your computer to power off. Carefully pick away large pieces of dust with your fingers, and then spray the CPU fan with a can of compressed air to remove the rest of the dust.

4
Reapply the heat sink compound between the CPU and heat sink if the computer continues to turn off unexpectedly. Heat sink compound is a pasty substance that fills the space between the heat sink and processor, which increases the heat sink's ability to absorb heat from the CPU. But worn heat sink compound won't properly redirect heat away from the CPU. Power down your computer, disconnect its power cables and open the case. Unplug the CPU fan's power cable from the motherboard, remove the heat sink and fan combination from the CPU, and then apply the heat sink compound to the CPU--refer to your product manuals for details on reapplying heat sink compound.

Thanks .
Have a great day.

AUTO SHUTTING DOWN WHEN LOADING WINDOWS


Hi there!
AMDs (some of them) have Overheating issues. Your default BIOS is set to protect the CPU chip in case of overheating. It will do so by shutting down the computer.
You can hold "delete" key on boot to enter BIOS. Go to "PC Health Status" or " Hardware monitor". Here if you see temperature exceeding 60 degrees or more, this mean it's OVERHEATING!
Now the first thing is to check if your CPU fan is running & is well secured with the lock. Try to move it to see if it's loose. Secure it properly to solve. If it's not running, you'll need to replace.
However if it's not the problem, remove the fan & its aluminum heat-sink with CARE. Then re-seat the heat-sink properly.
Note that a poor contact of CPU & heat-sink = Very Hot CPU & cold heat-sink.
If it's not the case, therefore remove the heat-sink & clean the old thermal paste on it & the Cpu chip also.
Apply proper thermal grease e'g Arctic Silver.
If the above does not solve the issue, you'll need to replace fan. (pls check with another one before buying a new one if possible)
Ultimately if the issue is not solved by the above, this means that the heat sensor on the motherboard is faulty. Here motherboard needs replacement or warranty services.
Hope this advice really helps you. Please remember to send us your valuable feedback as it's very important for us!

It restarts itself every after 15minutes


At this time you need to check first the CPU fan if it is spinning to prevent overheating. Some cause of this problem is the RAM check also the RAM or you may remove it and try to turn on if it will provide sound. But specifically this is a CPU problem you need to disassemble the CPU. If the CPU fan is not spinning and faulty already you need to replace it. When you reassemble the unit you need to put a thermal paste between the CPU and the heat sink so that the heat from CPU will absorbed by the heat sink.

Turns off


I assume you have a desktop computer. It is either the CPU is overheating or the 'Power Supply" is overheating/failing. Put your hand at the top back of your computer where the power supply is to feel if the fan is blowing air out the back. If there is no air coming out the back, then I think the fan has failed and the power supply overheats and fails. Repair or replace the fan before the power supply totally fails and has to be replaced.

Also check the fan and heat sink on the CPU. If they are loaded down with dust, the CPU is not getting cool enough, With power OFF, remove the fan and heat sink, clen them and put them back. That will do wonders to cool the CPU.

Over heating and how to change admin password


Assuming yours is windows xp.

go to start->control panel->useraccounts->
select the admin account. side list see change the password.
you have to input the old one to change the new one.

and overheating is caused by damaged heat sink interface material or even damaged heat sink.

if interface material is damaged then replace it with the intel original heat sink interface material or cooler master material.
if heat sink is damaged then select the appropriate heat sink for your cpu.
my recommendation other that original cpu coolers is cooler master cpu coolers. very less cost but superb effective against processor overheating.

Pentium D problem


Hi oilian,
Be glad it did shut down. If it didn't, your new CPU could haveover heated. There are a few reasons for a CPU to over heat.
1.) There is no thermal grease or too little on the heat-sink assembly.
2.) The old thermal grease was not removed or the old thermal tape was not removed.
3.) The heat-sink assembly was not cleaned completely with alcohol before applying new thermal grease.
4.) The CPU fan is running too slowly.
5.) The heat-sink fins are possibly filled with dust build-up & the CPU fan can not cool the heat-sink assembly. Boot to the bios & go to Hardware Monitor. There you can check voltage, CPU fan speed, CPU temp & other bios monitored settings.

Good luck oilian!

CPU Upgrade


You pulled the processor out of your laptop ... that was a brave move ... generally laptop boards are fully integrated so there is very few options on changing the processor ... also because of the extreme heating conditions the heat sink bonding is very critical ... make sure you replace this properly or you will have overheating issues in the future ...
