Question about Intel Pentium 4, 2.8 GHz (bx80546pg2800e) Boxed Processor Upgrade
I had the same issue - computer would work until the CPU got too hot and would just turn off - no shut down - I took the computer apart and found that dust had built up in the heat sink and there was absolutely no air flow - I used a small screwdriver and a vacuum cleaner to **** the debris out from around the fan and heat sink and the computer seems to run fine now - I know this a simple solution to what may prove to me a more complex problem but it seemed to work for me - good luck

Do you have standard CPU cooling? maybe you can try to get better cpu cooling. Thermalright has great CPU Cooling. Min is idle 20 degrees and full speed working 35 degrees

The pc is shutting down because is overheating. Try to look if your cooler is placed the right side. If you look at the base of cooler, there is one stair, that must fit on socket. Or try to use new paste, or lower the Voltage of the CPU. Monitor the heat of cpu by some program. Maybe cpu is broken...sorry for my english, it is not my native language:D

Hi have you cleaned the heatsink? Also replace the paste on the CPU, also you could try installing an extra fan on the case to increase air flow. Also check that your RAM is seated properly and any other chip and card on your board is firmly plugged in. If all this fails replace your CPU. Regards mistyman
